I'd say, like the others have, as long as both are of legal age, then it's dependent on the two involved.

Happy pre Birthday to HAHA!

That is absolute rubbish!!

What is it that you assume we "loose" with age, that we would have nothing in common.

I am near 60, and date women in their 20's or early 30's, exclusively. Most times I am told by these young women that we have a lot more in common than they do with guys their own age, and thet certainly like the fact that older men have far more respect for woman than the young bucks who just want sex.

Snowbird,

You are aging extremely well, either that or you are posting pics from way back :) if you had said in your profile, 22 or 23, i would have never doubted you

Hi, UlaLume,

I have a question in all seroiusness.

many girls like you say just that ... including the 20 yr old I am seeing right now. When we met abt 2 months ago, she felt the same way.

Over that time, she has changer her opinion, at least about me. i asked her just why she felt the way she did, and she could not tell me, other than with me, it was different.

Why do you feel this way... specifics, if you could articulate them .. What do you feel makes older men less than human to you, that going out with an older man is "shit" as you put it?

Now, the odd time she talks about old boyfriends, in any comparison to me, i always come out the winner.

Older men have a lot to offer young women, it just seems young women are conditioned by society to be afraid to find out

Steve

so would you date a man that was 14yrs younger?
Your also kinda tall I know that height is completely differnt, but would you date a man that was shorter than you as well?

To me its not a matter of age that is the problem unless you are a teacher dating your student, or your Micheal Jacksonand you like boys.

For me its why people make these choices that tells me if its a good choice or not. Or, looking at your life and saying you just shouldn't be in a relationship because some people shouldn't. I think we have all met those people.

It has been my experience that EVERY man, regardless of age, is only interested in sex. So far, the young ones are a) more attractive b) have better manners. Gee....tough call!!

I've enjoyed experiences with women much younger than I as well as older. However, for me, dating someone closer to my age is better.

Hi Steve Harper,

Well, I have to tell you one thing: You're too old for me. (I'll be 54 next month). Could never bear going out with guys more than a year or two older than me as a young girl and now I find myself attracted to men who are a good fifteen years younger than I am. The difficulty is that I worry about when I'm going to lose my youth and then these guys go pottering off after someone must younger....

IF I was thinking about marriage, then I would worry about age....maybe. I think it is more important to be with someone who you are well matched to and who you adore than it is to be with one the "right age".

In my personal opinion..... NO I do not feel that it matters.
MY grandparents were 15 years apart as were my mother
and step father.... I guess it all depends on the two that are
together. And I spose the maturity levels of both involved.
Age should NEVER be a factor in love
unless it's like he's 15 and you're 40 etc... lol

He treated me like an angel...

I think if there is an emotional connection it shouldn't matter the ages.
And people shouldn't discourage love...

If there's a connection I feel you should go with it.
Even if the guy or gal is YOUNGER than you are.
In my own personal opinion of myself I feel I would
very well with a younger man...

For me, it just depends on the stage of life you are in. There was a point where a few years was a lot..(teens), then a time in my life where I went with guys 8-10 years younger than me...(twenties, thirties). Haven't gone out with any that were more than a couple of years older, not because I wouldn't, but because the opportunity never arose. (Maybe because my friends were mostly younger) Now, the age difference is starting to matter again...not the upper age, but I wouldn't want anyone 10 or more years younger now. I want someone who will be ready to retire with me, so we can do things together. Plus younger men are now wanting to start families, and I'm done with that.

There is nothing wrong with it either way...it's all up to the couple...

Bein 43, I have found many women in thier late 20's early 30's to think that's too old to date. The funny thing is they're the ones usually complainin bout the guys thier age they date. lolol I admit it I like younger women, although I have met some my age that have really kept things together so to speak lolol
