"How many years are too many years apart" and "whats the oldest a man should be if a woman is 58" and "why is this"?
If you are a 58 yr old woman who "needs" sexual satisfaction from a man, the younger the man the better.
If "Sex" is unimportant but love and companionship is, why should age be considered?
I just feel uncomfortable if the man is 5 years or more younger than me..I am not sure what and how should I talk to him...as an elder sister ? Can't imagine I am naked in front of him ! :p
I think as long as the are loving each other, just go ahead.
I am always impressed with the intriguing and interesting questions people ask on hub pages, and the responses. I think this depends on number of factors. They are certainly both seasoned individuals, and know much about life and have undoubtedly loved before. If they both are healthy and have their wits about them, then it is up to them. If they truly love each other and are happy, so be it. No one else can judge for them.
Does age matter? I think it depends upon how mature in mind both people are.
I think it would be, maybe a give and take kind of thing. sometimes it will matter other times not so much, so if they are both mature enough to realise that, then probably no problems. Otherwise problems occur.
I think it is better that men is elder then his women. but not necessory.
I believe age is just a number..what matters is how the two of you can get along
Then "they" are at liberty to pursue whatever relationship they
Wish, they shouldn't need to seek understanding or approval.
Although if children are involved that could be different, a 58
Woman shouldn't be having a relationship with their 18 year old sons
School friend etc.
Why don't you tell us how old the male is?
As long as both are mature enough to make their own decisions, and of the legal age of consent, then I don't really see as it should matter what anyone else thinks.
Surely the activities of concenting adults are nobody's business but their own, (so long as they remain within the laws of their own lands.)
Seems to me it matters if you only got ten years to live.
This man is healthy and viberant. He may only have ten years to live but he has a heart of gold and is the most caring and loving person I've ever met.
Then hold on to him tight and enjoy ever second with him. Live life to its fullest potential and don't look back.
Nobody is able to determine how much time one has on this earth so what is important is what you do with the time you do have. Thus, either bask in the wonderful embrace of love and joy or look back and dream of the beautiful times you could have had.
Age makes no difference I am 48 and my partner is 61 we have had many wonderful times and continue to enjoy each and every minute we are privileged enough to spend together.
"This man is healthy and viberant. He may only have ten years to live but he has a heart of gold and is the most caring and loving person I've ever met."
'ten years to live', I was referring to myself.
Great. So what's the problem? Seems to me true love transcends the body.
I have been very happily married to a man 13 years my junior. I'm 54 and he is 41.
It works if you work it!
Love should have no boundries-If it is really love it will just happen-there is a difference between love and infatuation-Sometimes, I think we are so afraid of what other people think-that we avoid things or prevent things.I think what matters most is how you feel about it yourself and how the other person feels about it.If you are 58 and he is 79 what does it really matter-spending time worring if others will approve your decision is kind of silly--and life is to short to let someone else's opinion guide your relationship.I am 46 and my husband is 56-we have been together for 22 years married for 17 years- Alot of people use to say it would never work for many reasons-but the truth is if you want it to work it will-Just be happy.Some people are just compatible.
There is nothing wrong with spending time with someone who makes you happy.
I do agree that you should never date your childrens friends or others the same age as your children-but again that is just my opinion- what I was taught-common sense
Age doesn't necessarily matter; however, intellectual compatibility, maturity, and emotional compatibility along with the ability to trust and communicate with one another does, and are the foundations to a long-lasting and healthy relationship.
Unfortunately, some of those qualities, such as intellectual compatibility and maturity, correlate with age differences; however, if the two parties are able to work on a relationship, age doesn't really make a difference.
I use a simple formula to determine if there is to many years apart. Age/2 + 7 (age of older person, man or woman). Works for me
I've been going out with my partner for 2 years now and he is 7 years my junior. It seems to bother other people more than it bothers us and mostly my friends rather than his. Every week a comment is made about him being younger but I ignore it - we are happy and it doesn't bother us so I tend to ask the question why does it bother others?

Does Age Matter in Relationships? Does Heterosexual or Same Sex Orientation influence whetherage width or smallness affect whether Age Difference is okay or Not. For example what about a 76 year old and 35 year old in a sexual relationship? Would you feel the same or different if it was 76 male: 35...

What do you think about a younger woman dating an older man? (or vice versa)I've been dating a man that's 30 and I'm 23. We get a lot of jokes about it but there are also those who are against it simply because of our age difference. Do you think this is justified or does age really matter?

Can an old man (60+) fall in love with a young woman (20+)?We all know that love ignores all barriers like: religion, race, distance and age. But is it really possible for a man of 65-70 years of age to fall in love with a young girl of 20-25 years of age. I mean, is it psychologically possible?
