If it s not offensive, may I ask why you ended up after 4 years?

I am 38, she is 52 and everything is going more than excellent for 4 years...I am not questioning anything but just wondering where years will taken us?

Thanks for the opinions also,
cheers,
cuneyt

I pretty much have no choice but to be with a "younger" man. Most of the men my age are either already retired or planning it soon ... they are not interested in me. I've just started my career and wouldn't fit well into their "retirement plans" ... travel, sit around the house, lay around on the couch ... whatever.

I have to haul my butt out everyday and get something done. I barely get a weekend off much less weeks at a time for extensive travel. I need to work ... need medical benefits, need to still contribute to some sort of "retirement fund".

Younger men are still doing that and wouldn't have a problem if I just continued to work too. I intend to work as long as I have the energy to do so ... I love my work.

I think it is fabulous. My wife is 34 I am 44..don't laugh yet. I would go either way. Her mother is 58 and I would consider her very sexual and attractive. SHe keeps herself in perfect condition. My buddy even mention one time about me and her with her there and she blushed big tiem but also did not deny she would not ry something....This bording on incest. Point is she is 58 and if I weren't with my wife I would devour her...there is more but yes it would be perfectly alright in my eyes.

Hollywood and independent films love to takle this subgect. Who can forget The Graduate, The Mother, Class, Shadowboxer. Can we blamed it on the movies? Maybe.

I have my reasons for dating younger and I've finally realized I don't have to justify my choices to anyone.

I only date younger. The greatest age difference has been 18 years. I found the best relationship was with someone 12.5 years younger. We lasted 4.5 years before issues other than age difference pulled us apart.

If I date again, it will be with someone younger. It just depends on the person, though. Not all younger guys are mature enough to handle a mature woman.

My best guy friend, who has been my close friend for six years now, is 16 years younger. We don't kiss or anything (just in the beginnning when we first met) but we get along great as buddies.

I say, if two people are happy together and they are both legal, it is no one's business how old they are but their own.

why do you say that nonoloco?
just curious...
seems there's so much porn/instruction out there on the net, aren't the young females of today much more experienced than they were say 10 20 years ago if you were to compare an older woman with a young one?

Hi !

For myself, I have always been attracted to older women. My last one was 38 and i'm 32.
I guess it's just a preference but my son's mother was the first women younger then me by 1 1/2 years) and we where together for 10 years. So go figure...

I still prefer older women but I find as I've gotten older (42) women a little older than me are only intrested in much younger men ... So how come there no pretty women out there in there mid to late 40's or even 50's intrested in guys my age???

I think the difference is educational vs. experience and confidence. Younger girls may have learned a lot from watching TV, porn, whatever but older women have learned what works best for them personally from hands on and from process of elimination over time. I think older women are also just less self conscious, and not trying to impress as much.

Some of us old bats aren't chasing the young stuff.....and have zero interest in training anyone.

It is too bad we all get tarred with the same damn brush.....and it fascinates me how men assume a woman should be happy to have a mate 10 years older than herself but they do nothing but slag a woman when she dates 10 years her junior.

Maybe they would be more interested in you if they could find the person under the giant chip on your shoulder.

I can't imagine a woman of ANY age wanting to date someone with that kind of attitude.....not even if she was old enough to be your mom.

women younger than me think I am a terrific, caring, understanding guy.


Then date one of them.


So many times I have read your posts extolling the attributes of younger women and talking about how they are so much more compatible with you.

If that is so, then why hang about ranting about older women wanting younger men? Why not spend that time finding your soul mate among the younger, more attractive and compatible females?

The logic escapes me.

Date whomever you like, we really don't care.

Openroads, thank you. My spouse was 9 years younger and he certainly did not need any training or molding or anything else that has been mentioned here. And if he wanted sex from me, he certaily didn't have to marry me to achieve that.

~OT~ I personally want what I want, just like everyone else. My preference affect/effect no one but me. I am still waiting for someone to post a logical reason explaining why this is such a problem. Who cares what age someone else dates? My goodness, there are many women who don't care about age, and there are plenty that prefer to date older. I think I am missing something because I see no reason to get all fuzzzzzzzed up about someone else's personal preferences. JMO

See it is not the same, because men that are 25 have chances with women 45 for example. Women are not telling them "I am flattered, but you are too young."


Actually, I say that to ALL men under 35 and most men under 40. A lot of my friends also refuse to have anything to do with men who are significantly younger than they are.



The point is


We ALL have preferences in who we date. There is no point in freaking out and ranting about someone else's choices....just look for someone who meets YOUR preferences.

You cannot make a sweeping judgement about ALL women because you do NOT know what ALL women want.....you are merely guessing...and that guess is based on personal bias and opinion, not on fact. You need to quit worrying about what other people want and go after what YOU want.

It all depends on the people and their maturity levels. In the past I dated someone 4 1/2 years my junior. We had a great time.....

Good point Shore

My friends tend to be 10-20 years younger than me. Apparently, that is the age group I have the most in common with, yet "society" expects me to only date men my age or older.

How bizarre.

There are just as many emotionally immature older men as those younger. It's the man, not that age that determines his character, intelligence, maturity, sense of humor, etc. I have standardly done best with men younger than myself ~ but I have dated men older and they had issues much like those younger men I have had relationships with. I do have to admit that the "issues" seem more workable with men closest to my own age ~ give or take 2 - 3 years.

As for sex, it makes no difference to me what the age is ~ if he isn't stimulating my mind, he's not going to stimulate the rest of me. JMO
