I know there would be weird looks and people talking, I live in a small town. We've hooked up on a regular basis but have not moved further in our relationship. I have learned this the hard way, that an unhappy relationship can engulf you and destroy your life so if you love each other and you are happy then celebrate! We were definitely the exception to the rule. Sure our knees creak a little more, and are backs are a tad stiffer, but if we take care of ourselves, which many of us do, we can be in just as good a shape as our male underlings in their 30s and 40s.

As far as the only wanting one thing, that is a load of crap, we were waiting until marriage, so there, sex is not the only reason an older man would date a young girl. I have been friendly with an older male patient who seems to defy age he is 74, but looks like he's in his late 50's. My new boyfriend is a mature 28yr old and if anything, I'm the younger person in the relationship, yet he does bring the youthful fun to it too. We share nearly 100 mutual friends in real life. When i met him 5 yrs ago the age gap was not a problem until now, 5 yrs later.
Also he wasnt as sex obsessed as men my age although theres was always a strain put on our relationship. My Cousin has married a woman 18 years his junior and they are expecting their first baby. There is no animosity or ostracization. We have so much fun together and don't worry about drama not between us anyway. While he cherished her beyond reason because she was sweet and innocent in his mind.
Im trying to help my homeboy out right now. Why is that so hard for people to grasp? Then wait some more, and a little more, and just a bit more, then some more. A guy I just went out with told me he prefers to date women 20 and he is 43. He was with his girlfriend at the time, messing around on her for the now 18 year old girl. Doing it wrong, totally met the right person when I was 18! He is mature and supports my ideas gives motivation he is amazing!

Under 16, determining the 30 minutes to a baby and his wife wasn't allowed to. If they're both at the same stage i. When she would want to linger and i was a car and three years younger. Deep down, The Guy Who Has Just Fully Quit At This Point is pretty frightened about a lot of things, but his fear manifests itself in indifferent denial, and passivity usually prevails. Although, after we broke up, she needed to find a job and rent a place of her own, so she lived with me another 3 months and 10 days before finally moving out. I don't know how it works but it does - we are intellectual equals with similar interests, who just happen to be different ages, and just like in any other relationship, you just see the person, not the age.
My boyfriend being interested in a. In all reality, he may be the better choice than the 30 year old. I am over 30 so am in settled mode but I feel if I was 20 wanting to party all the time and going out with somebody whho was 11 years older then who wanted a settled life, that things may be different. Anonymous · 04 Jan 2007It's encouraging to see so many positive comments here and a debate on this issue! On the weekends when we both do not work, we go out on dates and such. He's 60 now - claims his wife and boys keep him young and do you know the age gap to look at them looks younger now than it did when they were dating.
Men who were older or the same age didn't seem interested in me romanticaly. You know those girls who refuse to date anyone younger than they are, much less anyone their own age?

Yes, Mick Jagger, we can get satisfaction, and that's because, at the end of the night, we have satisfied partners to prove it. Every relationship has it's own unique pressures, no matter what age you are. He told her that he cant do it to you especially when he did it before, and she never dated before. But the two of them married and a happier couple you'd be hard pressed to find.
