Going GreyPage 3 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
I just wanted to toss this out there for ya'll. I'm 27 and I just noticed in this last week that at least 1% of my head hair has turned grey. I think I'm probably done dating girls under 21. I'm not to keen at being called grandpa. :(

anyone with a simlar problem? premature greying? LOL

lol noodler I have dated many men with your issue or worse ones, i dated a man pretty much bald, i dated a man completly grey and omg did i swoon for him, and ive dated men with receiting hair lines, it adds character all it does is show how distinguished you are.

Jimmi...you would date 10 years either way?? HURRY UP and get over here....I turn 47 in April.

Seriously though, I don't care about age if there is maturity, shared interests, shared faith, and the all important chemistry. I doubt those things would be in place in someone who was 21, but it might be there in someone who is 31. As for older, same thing only I find that most men over 48 or so seem so ....'worn down'. Like someone or something has sucked all of their life force away and they are just a shell of the man they used to be or still could be. I have come into my prime since turning 40 and I need a guy who can keep up.

Having said all that, Jimmy, I have to say that I have been attracted to you since the first time I read your posts and saw your profile. We share the same faith, and ideas about things, and I find you terribly physically attractive. What I don't find attractive is the DISTANCE. The bane of the internet.

I just turned 30 & I think that it is a big crossing point; to me the difference between 29 & 30 is big although 28 to 29 is nothing. It is a psychological thing I guess with most people, because truthfully I am exactly the same. I just seperated from a long 10yr relationship, so I went back to college; now I get hit on by 18 to 20 yr olds but so far have been hesitant to date them. So far, for me I have only been able to be physically attracted to women that young. I have been able to become good friends with some but that spark doesn't happen & I am the type that needs that spark at this point of my life. When I was younger I would have dated them regaurdless of a true connection as long as the physical attraction was there, because at that age you are happy with just getting laid. Then you reach a point (especially after a long relationship) where you have done all the one night stands & hassles of the club scene & you are ready for more. I think somewhere around 25 (a few years before or after) you start to really mature; I guess according to the person. Now I will admit since I have seperated I have had flings, knowing it wouldn't go anywhere but there is only so much of a defense you can put up, then the testosterone kicks in I think it is possible for people over the hump to date people under the hump & still make it work but I think it would be hard; no pun intended..........

for LTR's age is a factor. For dating, it depends upon who one is attracted to; but other than that, I don't think it should be.

No reason for it to be....

All right so I'm now 23 so, how young and how old of ladies is it appropriate for me to ask for a dance so to say.

I'm dating a girl who is 21. I'm 32. Most of the time it's ok, but sometimes she seems a bit immature to me.

Um well so what are the typical regulations, or the un written guide lines for a 23 year old male?

[EllisE -- LTR = long term relationship]

While age can be a major influence on a person and who they are, it is only one of many influences.

For me, it all has to be about who the individuals are. At age 22, I started a relationship with a woman 13 years older than me which lasted 7 years. More recently, I spent quite a long time with someone where almost exactly the same age difference was there in reverse.

The women I have loved have been loved by me because of all the things they were taken together, not because they were younger/older, blonde/brunette, thin/cuddly, big/small-breasted, or any other categories that are supposed to be people's "types".

depends on the guy. i married my ex husband and he was 16 years older than me. Of course, from that I learned age does not necessarily mean maturity.

I use my brother's age as my guideline. if they are the same age or younger than that i have to pass. I also won't date anyone in my parent's age bracket. too weird to do that again.

so i guess mine would be from age 21 to age you, so about 4 or 5 years on either side of me.

Here's a quote I coined myself: "Age doesn't matter -- but it makes a difference." In other words -- If you are with someone older / younger you must be aware that there will be differences -- however if you love them and are committed then you made your bed and you will have to lie in this bed so make sure you can live with the differences. Me personally I would only feel comfortable with someone ten years younger or 5 years older. Just me.. !
