I am a 51 year old woman. Young at heart, more fit than most 25 year olds and much more energy than most 25 year old. I totally understand. I like adventure, however, I would never date a 25 year old guy because I have kids. I feel the only ones who would have trouble with this scenario are the ones with kids. Like her dad. You have to follow your heart until there's a deal breaker. Don't commit any finances or mlive together until 4 seasons go by. You dont know until you know. It takes a year to really know.

Dear Melissa,
Relationships are learning experiences. You are an adult and can date and be in a relationship with anyone you choose to. I have no idea what is going to happen in your life when you are 35 and he is 60. Heck, I don’t even know what’s going to happen if you dated someone closer your age in 10 years or 2 for that matter.
There is nothing wrong with doing what’s feels right for now as long as you commit to honesty and NOT to a promise because no one can ever know who they will grow into. This is not just specific to your situation but anyone in any relationship. That’s my 2 cents without having read the 7 page responses.

I'm 57. My last girlfriend is 31. Of course it can work...but that is up to the two of you. You will meet others who will scoff at your relationship; at the gap between your ages. If those comments have the potential to bother you, then yes, your age difference can be a problem for you. If they don't and won't bother you, then you'll both be fine.

Why did you say:

He IS NOT gay!!!

...as if you won the lottery in finding a man that's not gay???

LOL

I'm seriously trying to figure out what this means.

Do you live in South Laguna or West Hollywood?

the people who object are usually in one of two distinct groups;
either older women who fear the beauty of younger women, and younger men who fear the money of older
guys.

Hey, Melissa I'm not an expert, but it seems to me if you Love him and he Loves you then age should not be an issue, however what you need to think about long and hard is that when he gets old and gray are you still going to want to be with him when your young and Beautiful or will you leave him for a younger guy. I know your Mom and Dad may not approve at first but if they Love you they will look over this issue and move on, and if they don't then there destroying there relationship with you and your boyfriend.

The best cautionary tale for this age-gap combination would be Christopher Knight and Adrienne Curry. Besides it being kind of a publicity stunt to prop up both of their middling show biz careers, it was doomed alone from the age gap. The older guys should always know better but they can never help themselves and the younger women swear that age will never be a problem but they're not mature enough yet to know those problems.

Michael Douglas and CZJ are the exception but that has a lot to do with that he agreed to father as many children as she wanted in life. Whether they will stand the test of time remains to be seen, but he could live long enough for her to become an old lady herself. His dad is still alive! Though they look more like brothers now. :P

I wonder if CZJ ever turns over in bed and thinks she is sleeping with a 95 yr old man.

In thirty years CZJ will be 73 and micheal douglas will be 98 if he outlives his father's current age. The way we are currently percieving age for the darlings of the silver screen ( I am sure plastic surgury and other "youth" extending enhancement will advance in the future ) I wonder if she will be percieving her to be an OLD woman at the age of 73.

If she is desperately in love who is to say what is right? She may be looking for a father substitute and that he has not been married or has no kids, leaves the way clear. Her parents can say what they like, she is her own woman at 25. He is too old to be starting a family really, but many do it of course. If she doesnt want kids then all the better.
Love is love.... and it should not be thwarted by outsiders.

Michael Douglas is fighting for his life with cancer and it is not an appropriate comment right now. In thirty years probably neither of them will be here on the planet. WOmen often go for the father figure and of course men prefer younger women and when they are rich and famous, they get them.
