What do you say about the reverse? I mean, I can see why an older man would want to date a younger woman - physically that is, but why would a year-old woman want to date a man 45 or more? I can totally understand why older men go for younger women. Time creates wisdom - but it also creates responsibilities and complications - mortgage, kids, career, etc. All of this makes dating more and more complex as we get older. Still, most of them fail miserably, for the exact same reasons that I think Penelope is suggesting.
Women can have all the sex they want to have without the need to get married. If you build your marriage on sex it is likely going to fail at some point regardless of any age gap.
We are all going to experience health issues at some point, nobody is exempt from it. Some of us maybe sooner than we would like, in my case my younger wives health declined. LOL john such a typical response from a man having problems in the bedroom. Telling it like it is is not mean spirited. I think YOUR husband might be the problem. My uncles and aunts, from both paternal and maternal side, on an average have an age gap of 10 years between them.
My grandparents had 14 years between them. In short, it depends on the people involved in the relationship. This really helped me. I love my guy so much and he is so good to me.
Right now I cannot imagine falling out of love with him and the thought of it brings me to tears.
I am 31 and he is He still works out and is in great shape and I constantly worry about our future and taking the next step. But the incompatibility in a few years is something I may not be prepared for. Now the thought of that is not attractive. I know we should call the quits now to save the heartache and time but I am terrified because he is the only man that has ever conquered me.
But maybe because he is older. And we been together since, and yes we still love each other. I was 19 and he was 32 when we began to date. I am in that situation now and trying to determine whether it makes sense to continue or whether I should just break it off. Good luck with your decision.
And be like. Sigh fine. Or see yah and yeah that was great, I experienced that by myself!!! Wait Then why did. Then ill be widow at an older age and die with out that grow old togther cause he already died quite a bit before I was close to aging in. I was a cna geriatrics and am concerned of our future to where he married his future caretaker and ill be left screwed with angry underpaid.
And withoutmy loving husband a hand to squeeze. I know thats all. I could grow. I looove him. With what I said do i? Or am.
I just depressed? Perhaps crazy Or honest. We alll die. But freaking crap I didnt want at allll to die that much earlier than my husband. Grow old together, not watch you grow hecka old slowly die while I slowly watch and grow a hurt back to now deal with alone and poor due to medication s and medical bills and funeral. I wanted to be. Ive seen sooo many mourn the death of spousesand. I think being in the medical field had really really jaded me and I hope distorted my view.
Situation 28 year old woman dating 24 year old man not
And this all crazy talk but. Not to mention honestly are you as fast as you were when you were 20s as in 60? Orrrrr 70s vers 30? Noooo the gap and body progression is real and when you hit 42 you age 6 months quicker every x amount. I was a cna geriatrics and am concerned of our future to where he married his future caretaker and ill be left screwed. You already had your 20s why take another s cause when you 70 and theyre 55 thats a huge difference in those years especially.
He could have found. Now im. With watching him. The pain is soooo real. And ask allllll the time why. And I ask why 15 years. Didnt spell. I love my husband and he adores me. Not wanting to travel or go to functions is a problem in personality differences than age. You two may have been a bad fit but I think the age difference may have been a red herring here.
Enjoying life is can occur are any age. A good indicator might be to meet the parents. Genetics plays a big role and the lifestyle they live. The advice I would give women dating older men is to make sure they stay fit, that makes a very big difference. Watch out for these red flags instead, his diet, is he fit, his parents looks is a great indicator, does he exercise, how much does he care about his looks and that applies to any age you date.
She wants to be treated like a child. She wants to be immature. I can take care of myself financially for now and if we stay together longer I imagine us having a similar dynamic as any younger couple where we work together not just me living off of him.
Awesome words you write.
Think, what 28 year old woman dating 24 year old man speaking
We have been dating for 7 weeks. I separated 20 months ago from my wife of 23 years. I never imagined being with a woman 17 years my junior.
Not that it was out of the question, it just never entered my mind that I would be with a woman much younger than myself. We enjoy each other very much. Moreso me than her at the moment I Love her and want to spend what time I have left in this life soley with her. We have Many things in common, one of which, would be Very difficult to replicate.
I have asked her if she has seen anyone else since we met and she told me no. That is reassuring, but I am very paranoid that she may toss me to the curb for another, possibly, younger guy. This inspires me. I met him when I was 21 and he was So reading through most of the replies kind of makes me sad of course. We have so much in common and we have so much fun together.
But I love the life I share with him. Reading through the comments makes me sad again when I think about surein 20 years I will be 43 and he will be Good luck to you and your man. If both of you are clear about the most likely temporary nature of your relationship more power to you. Most relationships with a large age gap, whether the man or woman is older, tend not to last. Eventually that age difference starts to matter. No one is immune to time. We get slower and less healthy.
Things may be all fun and laughs now but when you turn 33 and start to think about the fact that he is 60 you may feel very differently about the relationship. At that point you may decide an attractive and vibrant 40 year old better suits your lifestyle, but your current man may not want to let you go. Thank you very much. Thanks again. My relationship with kind of been bumy. This comment really bothers me. As if men can only agree or see relevance when their age group or kind is the exact type of men referenced.
They are willing to throw away long loving relationships with women for a night of lust. Men this age will chest and justify it like no other age group. Risking family life and hurting his partner. You have to beg these men to get std test because they act as if their fragile little ego is so offended by something they should do anyway. They have never dealt with adversity. The slightest hardship will result in a nervous breakdown and the woman will be stuck babying them back to their male privilege health.
They are fake cultured. They travel the globe and take Snapchat but know nothing of the culture or people that they visit other than to sound pseudo cultured. They think experimenting with drugs is a romantic activity. No matter what socioeconomic class. Older men are men. They are decisive. They know how to open doors, let a woman relax, be sensitive when needed and string where it counts.
Millennial men are ridiculous and also now highly feminized. I will pass! Material issues. Faster, easier, sex. I think you have a great point. But I have to add older men are better in bed too. I was 23 and my ex was 36and yes he robbed the cruddle. He wanted to mold me to what he wantedthe only trouble there is, I did grow up. As for daddy issues. My dad was never around at my young age.
28 year old woman dating 24 year old man
I seriously had more fun with my ex. And the young shall grow. Write back when he is That made me roll my eyes a bit. Honestly, why go out with a much older man if you still have to work hard to please him!
Surely the pay off of going out with a much older man is that he is working very hard to please you!! So a 13 year age gap is a daddy issue? He was still in your age range! Alot of men dont even have wives or kids yet at that age or are just settling down He cant even be your daddy cause hes 12 or 13 yrs older than you.
On another note most ppl over 45 shouldnt show much of an age difference so make that over Your spouse is still a young adult now so no need to worry about that now. Youre both adults I think its a a little immature for a man over 28 to date a girl under 24 but its nothing that bad hes barely over 35 I know alot of immature guys in their late 20s and 30s that only date and hang around ppl in thier early 20s. On the latter one of older seeking younger ad 6.
And whose doing is that? And yes you can appreciate your dad. Even if it starts out that way, the youngin will grow and realize the folly of youth. Better make sure she has no financial assets to take care of herself. If you are very rich, she will still leave you and collect alimony. People can find others their own age to appreciate.
Unless you are a movie star or famous person, keep dreaming. Appreciation is not a reason to get married. We both care for each other,and we never talk about our age we just live life one day at a time. Does she have the opportunity to become everything she possibly can be in life while in a relationship with you? I am 31 and my guy is 48, I am a nurse and he is a CEO of a company.
When we first met I never asked how much he made or cared. I felt drawn to him and he was so funny and fun. The first night we met I ended up taking care of him because he had got really sick. He was really embarrassed, the following weekend we met up at a 4 day concert event where our love story began. I usually get along better with people that are older due to my views and values in life. He is better in bed than ANY guy I have ever been with and he loves so passionately.
He is kind, sensitive, smart, caring, and fun! I appreciate this man and love him with all of my heart. I simply feel a deep connection to him and I know he feels the same way.
We connect on an emotional level, a physical level, and a mental level. In life that is almost near impossible to find and there are people out there who never get to experience that with someone else. I was lucky enough to find that someone for me. How well two people work together and understand one another. How that person brings out the best in you and wants the best for you. I could have a guy from many age groups.
I go by what is right for me and for my guy. We have ups and downs like anyone else. That is normal. We grow and learn along the way. Life is so short and we are not promised tomorrow. Others may and have that right to their own opinions.
Thanks for the interesting read. What about when he ends up in a nursing home, are you going to be his carer?
Now we are both retired and we are closer than ever. My own dad was affectionate with his 3 daughters but it was clear that my mom was his girl. That is what I got. My ex left me for a 22 year md singer and dancer. He was I was shocked that he he married her.
She had nothing to give him. She took my home belongings, had an Invitro baby. I never had closure.
May she have the dump of her life. Why are you mad at her and not him? The sense of entitlement this woman displayed was truly unbelievable. But noooo. The Other Woman to whom he could have lied to get her into bed is at fault. Ladies, sure get mad at the woman, too.
The other woman is irrelevant to your anger. If this simple logic is not something you gals can get your arms around, no wonder there is so much dysfunction once a woman gets into a relationship. Karmic: WOW is right. When did I ever say otherwise? Frankly, I blame both of them for their actions. Two people made a choice to betray their spouses and destroy two families.
So for a year-old, the upper age limit would be 34 (17 * 2). With some quick math, the rule provides a minimum and maximum partner age based on your actual age that, if you choose to follow it.
Now both have paid the price for that choice. She is now a single mother with no support and he wants to come home to me but that door is permanently closed. Those are some pretty snide assumptions you are making there, especially considering that I never said anything you could base those on in my comment.
I AM a 28 year old woman who just come out of a 6 month relationship with a 20 year old guy. They dote on you and treat you like a queen and are usually proud to show you off. However, when they are ready to leave and do what most 20 year old males do (pursue and have sex with as many women as possible), they leave with little hesitation. Opinion: The danger of dating year old women My Man By Silas Nyanchwani ALSO READ: Another danger of dating a woman age is that marriage is a big deal for her. They are at the Author: Silas Nyanchwani. I'm 41 years old lady, and have always been attracted to older guys since I was 18, my first boyfriend was 34 and I was just 18 years old and when I was. 34 years old I dated a 62 year old man and had a very good sex life, at that time that's what I needed but now at. 41 years old what I craved is companionship, affection not so much just sex.
She knew me and our young children. Our kids played together for crying out loud. She is a Narcissistic Gold Digger so, no, she was not some innocent victim that my husband lied to.
I like your posts. Most women on this board vilify uncommitted men commitment phobes, man-children, narcissists, etc. The anger seems so disproportionate to the offender. So you took it upon yourself to inform us of how very deluded we all are without any background information.
I could pluck all kinds of things out of the ether and sound off on you for neglecting to mention them.
Are 28 year old woman dating 24 year old man that interrupt
Now see how silly that sounds? Ditto for the rest of us. If you actually care how we feel about something just ask before you criticize, unless criticizing is really all you wanted to do in the first place. Please show me where I said that all men must commit to a woman. Forgive me for not expounding upon the topic to your satisfaction. Only to vilify the other woman, when the MAN - who was in the relationship with you - should be one vilified. All three of you only mentioned all the details after I challenged what was written.
Oh, I vilified him in spades. Was I under some obligation to tell you every tiny detail right off the bat? Do you get to dictate what we share publicly and when? I took out the majority though admitted not all of my anger on HIM.
There is no emotional investment in the woman. She is not someone the wife has a deep attachment to, therefore, it is easier to forgive the guy and blame the outside enemy. Not condoning it, just considering why it might happen. You felt the relevant details was to name call the woman.
Think, 28 year old woman dating 24 year old man very valuable
I would have commented differently had you and Stephan and Sharon wrote with as much anger towards the man as towards the woman. Duh we can drop this now, right? Have fun. Mine left me for a younger woman as well, after putting us all through total hell for two decades with his drug addiction. That puts a whole different spin on things. A man in his 40s or 50s is likely either married or divorced.
Dude goes through a mid life crisis, leaves wife and kids for a younger POA who makes him feel all youthful again.
Too late sucker. No take backs! He stuck with her anyway for a while to avoid being alone but he did eventually dump her.
I have to admit that it makes me quite happy to see that SHE is now a single mother too because she left her husband to steal mine. Karma is a beautiful thing! Walk a mile Derek, then come back and lecture me on my morality.
My husband left me after 20 years of marriage to be with a 22 year oldHe is 57 years old. The longest, best romantic relationship I ever had was with a much older guy. All that said, we were very much in love and it felt like we were equals. I know that people looked at us and thought things - esp. Well, not rank. And, it turns out, in our lives. But we never talked about that stuff - we were just into each other and our work together. But it also feels like peace and happiness.
I do know many successful May-December couples. The woman is most often the younger, but not always. Gotta get off the internet. My eHarmony guy is gonna call in a few. Not as exciting as Award Man, but very funny, nice. Older guys: higher social value. I totally buy younger women going for older men. See it all the time. They only plan on being together for 15 years, give or take. Basically a really long LTR or a planned mid-term marriage.
Does anyone have a problem with this? He gets what he wants fantasies fulfilled, feels younger, arm candy, whateverand she gets what she wants that is, a comfortable life. Lance, the only problem is at 60, the old guy will not let the 43 year old go.
I Want Kids But My Husband Is Twice My Age - EXTREME LOVE
Can she, yes she can but she has to be wise. I am 53 and am on friendly terms with several women in their 40s, who are keenly looking for someone to settle down with. BUT there are plenty of women, desperately lonely, and will do almost everything to have someone love and care for them.
There are many more 40 year old women than there are 40 year old men. In person as well as online. I have dated ages both ways. Someone who most people know of, Sandra Bullock, has just been voted most beautiful woman in the world in some poll and she is a beauty at 51, and another familiar face, Christie Brinkley is a total knockout at 61, but there are plenty of beauties of that age on match etc. They have lots of experience and many good years ahead of them. I was married for 23 yrs before i found out my wife was cheating, I got divorced, then I met her, her family loves me.
You want a young woman she wants a young man too. The younger men just want sex. You still look good and feel young, but the only men who want a real relationship with you are over Cause the person at a real loveing level alll you love about themyou watch their body age and them struggle to communicate and talk and it killllls you.
Some people actually love the person and the traits that create them and didnt know the age or couldnt tell and then love is there so oh well and too late.
I think people should be mindful on the younger and understand what you could be taking and be kind enough to say no. And marry your own age or closer and form a relationship to love with someone your own age. Wish he would have pushed me away a to save aallll this death pain.
He could have found someone his age. I love him. KNOW what I would. It was selfish. At 48, Is He willing to remarry for his second or third time and also have kids with you and form a happy family?! In the other side, Is he just using a young woman exploiting her prime youth for companionship but not committing in order to offer her a marriage and kids cause he will be a Grandfather instead.
I briefly - very briefly - dated a 50 year old.
He just knocked my socks off. Do THEY jointly plan on being together for 15 years? Or does She? I ask because the VRD can live like Hef cialis, viagra. The grown-up events are very nice, and not something that a young guy can bring you to. My family background has made me naturally drawn toward older people friends and romantic interests alike. Perhaps the fact that guys closer to my age are finally maturing has something to do with it. And lastly, in regards to the sugar daddy or rich older man phenomeon.
Not necessarily the case. Financially though, I suspect I have far more assets. Though I also know more than a few young ladies with a thing for Sean Connery. I believe she is an animal lover. These days a lot of women are holding onto their hotness. Prostitution is very quid pro quo, Vino. Would each have the same feelings if he were an old loser and she were a young ugly thing?
It is not normal to fall in love with someone who looks like your dad. But if he promises security, you might take him on the offer. I admit you might grow to care for such a person but chances are he chose the inexperienced girl to manipulate. They dote on you and treat you like a queen and are usually proud to show you off. However, when they are ready to leave and do what most 20 year old males do pursue and have sex with as many women as possiblethey leave with little hesitation.
If you get attached it feels horrible WHEN not if it's over. I am 33 and my husband is 23, and nothing has ever felt more right. It's not the ages that determine a good relationship. It's the people in the relationship and their similar values and views on life and how they connect with each other. We have the full support of both sides of the family and everyone loves everyone. E ight years isn't a huge difference. However, I personally wouldn't date anyone 8 years younger, I don't think.
But who knows what the future holds, right? W ho cares what anyone ELSE but them thinks? There've been couples with bigger age differences who lived happily ever after. U shouldnt care what I think or what anyone else thinks! But I say, "age aint nothin but a number", and "when its love, its love"! Dont worry about no age, as long as these 2 people are happy!!! I f they are happy.
The world needs more happiness. I f that's what you want to do, then go for it. Be prepared for the fact that he might be a bit, how can I say it, 'immature'. N ot a bid deal. P Nelson. T hey're both adults so it's really no one's business except theirs.
Kiwi girl aka jeanie D ating a younger man is pretty common, I think. On GirlsAskGuys. Give me a six pack any day.
A keg is too much. OH go for it. I would. S hould I be shocked or something? I am not. I find it quite normal, actually. I f you can stand a 20 year old man, go for it. Of course, I'm biased - I'm married to a man 10 years my senior. Y our as young as the man you feel lol enjoy! B een there, doing that, only he's 22 and i'm Pete Parker.
I t's always good to get an up-down age perspective. You'll find out that sometimes it's not always about having a sexual attraction that's out there. Be careful and just have fun.
There are critics everywhere so be prepared as well. You'll find your good fit someday as well. I think if that's bad, then I wonder how a 29 year old with an 18 year old looks!
W ho has read the book "Women's room"? It gives a very logical explanation on which age group should date which. First a young girl not younger than 18 anyway with an old man, then a middle aged woman like ith a young man then may be her age or a little yonger. I ts ok!
Dec 15, While the rule says that a year-old woman could date a year-old, most year-old women don't feel comfortable doing that, according to researchers. Women tend to stay much lower than the rule states is acceptable. If a woman's maximum age range is 40, she is more likely to date someone who is around Author: Lachlan Brown. Nov 17, They're on her back about who she dating. "You're 28 years old," the mother says. "You need to find someone." In My Best Friend's Wedding, Jules and Michael make a pact that if they aren't married by the time they're 28, they'll marry each other, and comedy ensues. Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway's characters are also roughly 28 in Bride Wars Author: Pauline Millard. Jun 24, Monty Python's John Cleese, 72 years old, is in a relationship with year-old Jennifer Wade; Charles Dance dated year-old Sophia Myles when he was 58; year-old .
As long as you two arent together for interest I am only thinking the guy who is so lucky. I am almost 40 and no girl would see at me even once.
I've never been happier He takes better care of my 2 kids than their own fathers, age isn't shit, it's ultimately the connection you have with that person. S eems normal to me. My dad prefers older women and he's like Mexican Barbie. I have a cousin and shes 28 and hes 20 and they both are happy, get along well,and share the same interests and all those things that makes them happy.
