Do old men(over60) find it awkward dating young girls?Page 2 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I can't imagine why a girl would want to date a man over 60. Is he old and RICH?

Sounds like someone needs a daddy, and it is not healthy. I'd talk to a counselor about it, determine what it is about grandpa that fills whatever never nurtured need, and get to work on that. Otherwise, you're going to find yourself, having spent years with grandpa, mothering his grown children and grandchildren (or being despised by them more likely) longing for a child of your own and perhaps being too old to have one.

Or, he'll die and you'll be rich. Like Anna Nicole. There's a role model.

Lady you do not know what you are talking about. you say it is some sicko getting off on this girl. what a pathetic answer. i am 72 years old and i have a wife who is 25 years younger than me. i also have a16 year old son. my wife and i are very happy indeed. we are not perfect at all. we like the same things and overall up to this point have really enjoyed our life together. you are in no position to make those kid of comments about someone you dont even know. i think you should retract your comments and in future you should not make those kinds of comments about someone you know absolutely nothing about to you

It s not only young girls want old man I am 69 and some 20th want to go out with me . Sure I dont look my age look lot more younger than 60 but I dont want go out with man younger then my children . If you look man profile lot of 60 old man are looking for young woman they are not interresting by us . Viagra and it s ok I think the young just want money they think all these man are rich and can have lot of money but it s not all been rich and so many liars on the site like POF and other site like that.It was my point of view . Sorry about the fault I normally speak french.

There's the flip side -- would older women find it awkward dating younger men???? Society seems to feel wink, wink, nudge, nudge when an OLDER man dates a younger woman. But let an OLDER woman date a younger guy and it's 'cougar' time, shame, shame.

I think it's pretty much gotten to wink wink nudge nudge all around these days

Just a question. If you're so happy, why are you looking for a piece of strange? And I seriously doubt the wife would be happy if she knew. And finally, you've lied about your age, big time (good bit more than a decade, close to a score) ~~ not a sign of someone who's secure in themselves, eh?

Guy, If your're 59...I'M 72. Anybody looking like you at 59 I would say has had an inordinately HARD life.
On to the point; I can't believe the reaction most people have to someone being 60. It's like it was the age of Methusula himself. Humans are so predictable. Chances are that most have a 60 year old in their lives somewhere and they just assume that every other 60 year old looks and acts like the one they know. It's how the human psychology functions, with generalizations. I.e. I got bitten by a dog once, hence>be wary of ALL dogs. We can't help ourselves.
I'm 60 and date younger women. But at my age, a 45 year old woman is a much younger woman, so most don't see that as too young for me and it draws no attention at all. I've dated women 30 years younger too. No prob. Most don't even realize they're dating someone my age when they date me..EVEN WHEN I TELL THEM!
People react to "60" because in their minds they're thinking ED, weakness, fuddy duddy, pants up too high, no teeth etc. they can't even imagine someone arriving at 60 without these markers of age, so it's no surprise to me they react as they do to "60".

Wow Kruets...Telling US you're 72 and happy in your marriage and then seeing your profile where you're lying about your age and looking for strange behind your dear loving wife's back...WoW! I guess some people NEVER mature!

@Kruets:

Does your wife know what you are doing up here?

The very reason why this post was created was with the intention of finding out if OLDER men find it awkward dating young girls. You stepped into that one and got BUSTED. You lied about your age (59) and here you tell the truth (you're really 72). You claim you are both happy together yet you seek an intimate encounter.

This one was priceless.

I have the same problem with younger guys ...... if you younger gals want to get off on older dudes .... ummmmm .... more power to you, but I find them simply unapepitizing in more ways then one .. give me the young guys as they are so much more knowledgeable in the pleasures of women ...... and omg ..... their bodies are so much more amazing to enjoy. Unless he has a big fat wallet you are really wasting your time!!!!

I find older men with gray hair very attractive. An older gray haired man will turm my head faster than any other man. I would rather date an older man than one my own age.

I would hope men that are over 60 would find it awkward dating someone that much younger. I know I resented people asking if my dad was my husband and then there were those that asked if my ex-husband was my dad. Two weeks ago someone asked if my son was my husband. I don't understand what people see.

LOL

I think that older men (at that age+) wonder if they can hobble quick enough to the car if she decides she wants to be persued ..

It really doesn't make much sense in either direction if there's a big age difference in my opinion. We've heard cougars and older men talk about dating people young enough to be their own children enough as it is.

No I don't find it awkward dating someone in their 40's.

On the reactions you get when going places with your adult children. I'd see the scorns I would get from strangers. I wanted to get a t-shirt that said " She's my daughter. I'm not the perv you are".

Most guys I know don't care. But they know lots of women do, including lots of young women, and that bothers them, because they don't really know if she wants to be with him, or if she is just looking for a free meal.

For instance, I know a guy who is 50, but looks 39. He gets lots of young women interested in him. That is obvious. But if he tells them his age, then they usually get turned off, even though he doesn't look or act his age, and no-one would know different unless he told them.

Probably the time I was most embarrassed was when I was 28 and I was seeing a girl who was 26. We went into a bar/restaurant to eat, and the manager said to us "I'm sorry sir. You can't bring your daughter in here. We don't allow 14-year-olds in." I kid you not. She showed him her ID, and then we went to eat. She said it happened to her all the time.

That's probably the most embarrassing thing, when you are dating someone your age, but being told that you are dating your daughter.

Nope, still think it is more embarrassing getting asked if you husband is your father or son is your husband... I try to laugh it off, but my son's girl friend was sitting right next to him. I really do wonder about what people think.

How does anyone act 39 vs. 50? I have dated both ages and ya know the 39 yr old I am seeing acts more mature than my ex that is 60.

I don't consider myself as an old man, but an older man....thank you!!!

But yes, it would be awkward, because we probably wouldn't be on the same mental level, remember the same T.V. shows from the past, have different outlooks on life, based by age, like the same music, have friends the same age...etc..

Now, if it were just sex and that only....maybe, but I prefer women closer to my age.

Funny reading some of the responces....A cougar goes after younger men to have sex with younger men, an older man goes after a younger woman to have sex with a younger women....he gives up money, she gives up ?

See...women get all the breaks..........

But what ever happened to the younger woman wanted an older man, because he is more mature and wiser than a younger man and in "some" cases might treat her better?

Hey luckyhot, the reason I prefer older men is what you said in your last sentence. Older men seem to have some old school left in them and knows how to treat a lady with respect. They are more mature and wiser than a man my age. When an older old school man treats a lady with respect they get the same treatment in return, at least thats what I do. I do have my limits tho, I dont want a man that looks like my grandfather.

Well, MS.BS 49....I can understand that, I don't want a woman that looks my grandmother...lol.

I understand these features being important to you. Good for you for wanting them, but I have read where its been said someone was with an older man and didn't get ther respect and wisdom, just the same B.S. and they dound what they wanted in a younger man. So, maybe its who you run into, but in general I like to think what you say is true.

I guess what I listed were basically cultural differences mainly, and how much weight should that carry? Truthfully I had girlfriends of different relations, then was in a long marriage and a couple of relation since, so, in a way...I don't really know.

I also know that women to me can get into their sexual prime around 50, not biologically, but mentally, because of finally shedding old beliefs, socities B.S. etc..so, it would concern me if I am 55 now, and she is 38- 45...whats going to happen if she hits this prime and I am where statistics are not in my favor? I'm old school one on one and give my love strongly, and love please, and know I do that.

I do prefer my own age, but have to admit at times I feel I gave the best years of my life, and where did it go, and can see the attraction, not so much sexual, but the youthfulness exuberance in a younger woman....

So, appology for the "maybe sexual" comment...I sometimes say things before I really think about it.

I really don't know for sure the answer to the question...it asked about awkwardness, not ruling something out.

I know one thing, I want someone to love me for being me....
