Am I the only one with a major problem with old men going out, or having sex with significantly younger women? Even our differences, because there are many different needs and interest, we enjoy eachother so much. To many, this sounds like bragging but to those who can understand, this means a lifetime of being misunderstood and ridiculed by people who can't follow your train of thought or because you are interested in theater when everyone your age is raving about a new Drake album. This is the way it is, has been, and will always be! To any women who are considering it, I highly urge you to not discount dating someone just because they're significantly older. It's certainly not based in daddy issues for me, but the fact that I can be with someone who is incredibly well-spoken, educated, and accomplished. If you re after his money for social acceptance. I am just wondering, am I just daydreaming about the possibility of marriage or should I patiently wait for the right one to come into my life? Finally, it is easier for younger girls to relate to them.Next
I was not looking for an older man to date. They aren't looking for any fairytale bs. We took our time getting there, and it took a lot of work. Honestly, he's the sweetest person I've ever come across in my life. It will work, but communication is the 1 thing that has to be addressed for the relationship to work. I'm 34 yrs and my man is 64 yrs the age gap is 30. Shes funny, cool, and is interesting.
Psychologically, they reach emotional maturity much sooner than men. She is strong, smart, and beautiful. Going out with a man who is old but for cash is unconscionable. I am 26 now, I am dating a man 12 years older then me. But please make that decision with your heart, not your wallet.Next
I was going through a deep depression of losing my Dad to cancer. Interesting how you make the most apparent age difference example 27 and 47. All were from overseas, and all told me young men don't know how to treat a woman, and that is why they pursued older men. From an older man's point of view, I have mixed feelings about meeting which she wants to do. Let me ask my 38 year old boyfriend. She had come off a relationship with a boyfriend her own age who had beaten her up badly at least a couple of times she has a plate in her mouth, which she never removes, where some teeth are missing as a result of these attacks - it took me a year to discover that fact. He appreciates all the unsolicited support, but he also thinks it would be pretty great if everyone stopped thinking there was something wrong with him.
Obviously it is more belieavable for an ugly woman in her 20s to be physically attracted to a man in his 60s, than it is for a beautiful woman in her 20s to be physically attracted to a man in his 60s. Most of my ladies have bought expensive presents, gifts, and done what they can, to show their appreciation, and love for me that cannot be faked. Aside from that scenario, however, is there any reason that a 30-year-old woman can find love with a 37-year old and not a 44-year-old? All my mother wants to do right now in her late sixties is travel while facing the reality that she has to be a caregiver to my dad in his late seventies who doesn't want to go anywhere. Especially, if you are a female in your twenties and he is in his thirties. I worry about what things will be like 5 or 10 years from now when I am 35-40 and she is in her mid 50's. I'm actually in a similar position, but I'm female. It's simply a physical thing — I like the rugged skin, crow's feet and silver hair.Next
We talk all The Time He supports me and he's here for me when I need him to be. Ladies any relation and for whatever reason is great as long both parties are clear of their reasons behind their actions. If you want an older man because he make your whole and happy go for it. I am a 33 years old woman blessed with a wonderful career. They need a strong anchor, and a mature man can provide that emotional stability.Next
Suzzana123, whatever you think is also inconsequential! I have not a single friend of my age who can. I am in my late thirties seeing a man in his early fifties. The benefits of dating an older man are very few, and most fathers would have a hard time if their daughters began to date one. He has a sense Of Humor Like me. I'd consider dating a woman your age. The idea of stability and security is indeed incredibly appealing to me as I believe the best of my years are better spent in intellectual endeavours or boosting my career or helping my family. He's a very busy man every time when he gets home he's tired which I do understand.Next
Compatibility and common life goals seem like better indicators of the likelihood of success for a relationship, not necessarily age. If its a outing I invite him out to, I usually find myself alone. It's a matter of decency, integrity, valor, honor that these men seem to be woefully lacking. Unlike their younger counterparts, who mention things like a nice smile or nice personality more often, men in their 40s bring up a caring, loving, and kind when describing who they want. To get an idea of the possible challenges, you only have to read the experiences of women who have married old men. Lately I have been getting a lot of attention from the over 40 female crowd.Next
When I see a 65 year old man going with a much younger woman I usually think gold digger. I did date guys my age 30ish ; unfortunately, we didn't click. This all changed when I had a boyfriend who was 58 and I was 18. Think about it when your forty, that person who you found attractive, sexy and virile in your twenties will be in their 60's to 80's if they were 20 to 40 yrs. Interestingly enough, is honest as well. No man wants to date a woman that wants him for his money. I am so much looking forward to talking to her in person.Next
