Lowryder.... run for the hills! Lol. I seem to attract younger men and always have for some reason. Not really sure why that is, but it seems that the guys my age are looking for younger ladies. The younger guys don't put such an emphasis on age. But, honestly, to me age doesn't matter and I agree with everyone here. It is how old the person looks and acts, mentally and physically, and the attitude that really counts.
I love this question. Age is just a number, but a two people but can the same age and act years apart. About three years ago, I dated a man who was 47 at the time and acted 80, wouldn't live life - didn't know how to have fun, on the other hand my *f* buddy that I just busted with was 51 and acted maybe 35. Go figure - age is a mental state, not a physical state. But I do prefer to date men who are at a point in their life where they no longer wish for me to bear their children or have small children at home (toddlers), so that is usually why age might play a role in my decision to date, younger men who have not had that opportunity for a family might want to get serious, then might want to have one, I have had mine and I'm not doing it again.
My ex was nine years older, but is athletic and looks good. I still like to date men about my age or a little younger, but just met someone 7 years older and he's a wonderful person...so... Mostly age is an attitude.
It matters somewhat. I tend to lean towards men my age & a little older.
I have dated guys as young as ten years my junior...didn't work out...I kept having to explain that the "Hustle" was a song & dance, not a video game!!!! Yeah I know...I'm telling on myself....the dreaded word...DISCO!!!! But most women who loved to dance, did a little disco, me included.
I always dated men older than myself... at least 10 years older... lately tho... I've been looking harder at the men closer to my own age...But I have never dated anyone younger, and don't think I ever could... just not into "training" any youngsters... Oh let me rephrase this...
Eye_M... your excluded from that general statement.
HAAA.... damn pheromones... making me eat almost all my previous statements... well at least they don't go down hard!
age is a number
eye_ you are correct
emotionally and personality secure is a good thing
also i do not want to be a teacher
most of the guys i have dated recently have been younger by at least a few years
summerset you just haven't met the right women!!!!!!
i'm 50 and you can't keep me down--yes i do like to cuddle by the fire(if i had one)i take classes--one young(25) fellow student came up to me and told me that i gave her hope--her mom turned 40 and became an old lady--knowing me she realized that she didn't have to be her mom--that it was her choice
"The women i know and have dated seem to act "Old" once they hit 45. They dont seem to want to ride as much ,or seem to enjoy it as much as a younger gal does. I dont figure into the equation when i ask a gal out, if it happens it happens."
LowRyder... hmmm... sounds to me like you're dating the wrong "older women"...
It is said that the day you began to journey with mind altering drugs is the day you stopped maturing....... the day you stop is the day you begin to grow up...... So kids!!!! How old are we all, really........
Happy Love an' Passion Day.
nice question...for me i still have not found a right answer...i have been in relationships from 43-61 year olds....in reality age shouldn't matter, but i do need someone who is old enough to have a family and understand that your kids come first no matter what and not to be jealous of that, and i think until a guy has kids he doesnt understand...one thing i do hate is when older people go with such younger ones, and the younger ones want to live faster and harder and move on, and then the older ones complain.......what did they expect....i realize we all mature differently, but if you cant keep up out of your range, maybe it is time to change the range and stop complaining.........
Age is just a number. My first husband was 4 years older, 2nd was 9 years younger. I was also in a LTR with a guy 16 years younger. As long as the 2 people involved are comfortable with their ages (specifically differences), then it is nobody else's business.
