She is barely legal, He is 48Page 12 of 13    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)
The opinions on this never vary, always stupid.
Who cares? I mean really.
A guy will date younger because he CAN.
If the young woman is of legal age, it's nobody's business.
As hard as it is to find any sort of relationship, I fail to see why this
is such a great concern to anyone.
I'm sure that the older guy who is able to attract a good looking young woman couldn't care
less if you call him names!

Its a quest to try to find thier fleeting youth, the same reason a women in her later years trys to look younger and find a younger guy and drives that convertable sports car. You see these gawdy people on the prowl. Most pursued financial success and later in life realized they were older with no emotional connections. So they pursue what they lost during those years of climbing to the top.

I think it's a good idea

All 18 yr old women should date older men ~ the older the better

OP: So? So what? If they're both happy, what business is it of yours anyway?

Uh, for the man, the appeal would be:

Visual: She looks good.

Tactile: Her skin and hair are silky-smooth to the touch.

Emotional: She's sweet, vulnerable, impressionable, teachable, an open book (not yet jaded by experience). And sex is a brand-new thing for her...hence the sexual excitement and willingness to experiment with her own body...and his. As long as he's in reasonably good shape so she's not grossed out (ewww), who cares?

Ego: Sure! Even if she's only out for dough, there is a sort of thrill and ego gratification in the elder thinking "I've still got IT".

From her standpoint, he probably treats her nicely than the horn-dogs her age and buys her nice things.

And the problem is-?

If you analyze the replies that go with the pics.....it breaks down like this: older women who don't want the competition so they say horrible things about any guy who would dare to date younger, out of shape funky looking older guys who wouldn't get any play from a younger woman anyway so they talk shit about the guys who CAN, younger guys who get mad at the older guys for poaching, etc.,etc.,etc.

In other words, most of the people who have "issues" with this actually have their OWN personal issues that really have nothing to do with the subject at hand, and have more to do with their own petty jealousies and insecurities.

There is no better way to attract men than to stay slim and fit.

That still doesn't work!!!

Capt Blaugh.

Thee dost protest too much.

The reasons I have been dating younger men are the very same reasons you cite that older men date younger women. But I want a man - that guy is looking for a GIRL.
That aside, men my age and older are seldom in goos physical condition (I am), they are slowing dowm sexually just as I am gearing up, and they often have dated attitudes about gender roles and try to TELL ME what to do. (doesn't go far with this gal). Older guys are just too controlling for me, and oh, BTW - I don't want to entertain them in their retirement, or do their housework either.

Needless to say, however, I'm sure there are some good guys out there in their 40s & 50s. Just as some of us older cougars are awesome & hot..........grrrrrrrrrrr

Tarah, Be careful... if you were a man, there would be POF Flamers lined up to call you a Pedophile.

There ARE women who prey on under age boys. And they've been in the National News, in recent years. And they've been in Prison.

To the OP : If it's legal, and consensual, who cares ? I'm not paying their bills, so it's none of my business. And I'm not forcing my values over their's.

I was just being facetious about all the "She's legal" comments

Like i said before, if older guys go for 18 yr old women, then big whoop. It's their funeral

ETA: Yes, I'm joking, because, if the legal age were pushed back, then people could always say "She's legal" about someone younger and younger

Is it an ego thang.

^ Perhaps or it's a lack of self esteem or emotionally maturity.

Reproduce? ~ Not likely.

Many have zero children by choice (selfish) or are finally released from what they considered a mundane yet purposeful life. Their kids are grown and don't need them.. as much.

What to do, what to do.

I know... I"ll find a younger (hawt) woman that I can control and treat like a child (cause she is one). That way, I'll feel like a stud and important again. Yes, it's true.. I need a younger woman to validate me because I'm pathetic... incapable of holding my own... sorta 'thang'.

With out man bashing here, I just don't get it.
What is the commonality of a 48 year old male, seeking out a 18 or 19 yr old lady.
Is it purely sexual ? I see it more and more on dating sites, Men in their late 40's saying they are only seeking 25 and younger. I know there is a core need for men to reproduce, spreading their seed sorta thing. Seriously other then that, why do men do this? Is it an ego thang.


just another dirty ol' bas.tard that can't cut it in the real world or with women his own age desperately trying to relive what once was in other words he can't get it up any more unless he's eyeing up some innocent Bambi... if it was my daughter I'd blow his knee caps off with some buck shot.

I don't think its sexual at all...well...maybe a little.

From my experience, granted I'm nearing 30 so I feel I can say this without regret is the fact that most women my age (and older) that are single are most likely to be highly damaged goods. Either they have been in at least one marriage (maybe more) that has failed or have been in countless bad relationships so there is a lot of baggage there. Chances are that kids come along with that as well so that's another let down. As men get older...they really don't want to deal with all that.

Being almost 30, I would prefer seek out women that are in their early to mid 20s at the oldest and I can imagine that not much will change about that even when I am 40 or even 50.

Its a pretty sure bet that these women will be cleaner (fewer sexual partners) and relatively sane (haven't been run through this horrible meat grinder that is life). All of this makes for less headaches and less problems...plus all that baggage is heavy and I'm not getting any damn younger either.

SgtQ ~ Everything you said can be applied to men as well ~ so if men and women are damaged goods, after 30, what's left but people in their 20s sticking together and never parting? sounds good, yes

It's very simple for me...I want the relationship I've never had yet. I've been single since 1993 she was 20. All my relationships lasted 4 or 5 months. We never got to know each before it was over. I've never lived with a woman and I've spent only on weekend together with a girlfriend. And as for sex I could probably court the times I've had that on my fingers and toes. I have no life experience. I was told a couple of years ago by a woman my age that I was much like her son. So now I want to experience the things you do a couple do that I haven't done.
