We never know when our time is up or what might happen to us to make the time we have left here less enjoyable, productive, and healthy. Though we look the same age mid to late-20ies , his family has happily accepted me and expects us to start a family of our own soon, he gives my 30 year old friends good life advise he has such a good head on his shoulders , he is more mature than all of my friends who are mature , has a great job, gives me great career advise, my boss loves him, is extremely intelligent, amazing to have as a friend, amazing to have as a boyfriend, I am 100% in, then I think about his age—ick. I've just turned 43 and seeing a gorgeous 27 year old. We also share extreme interest in sports and playing sports as well. If he watches Fox News, dump him and move on. So when he turned 55 and was eligible for retirement, he jumped on the opportunity. You are removed from the amount of work it takes to make a day to day live in relationship sucessful.
But for now we enjoy being together. A close friend just married a woman 19 years older and they both are in dreamland! Our relationship is still new. Last night, she said if she dated or ever remarried, she would want it to be someone without kids. Yet another happily blended family! I know of so many couples with similar age differences and they're the happiest couples I know. Our honesty is of a level I never have experienced with other lovers- no secrets whatsoever. Never said a negative word to me.
I would imagine that the best case scenario is that you both very much want kids and both of you will step up to make the sacrifices necessary to raise them. They are in different stages in life. Younger men are always ready and are up to anything you desire. You think you are mature and so smart for being 25. The incidence of bipolarity, epilepsy, prostate cancer and breast cancer also increases in children born to men approaching 40.
While you make it sound like marriage, you can leave at anytime. Likewise, posts found to direct odious influxes here may be removed. There's a very weak correlation there. More and more we see much older men and women marrying younger, and its great! I hate that it is weird for me. I learn from him and he learns from me.
Five months ago things took a different turn when he held my hand. Our 25 year difference might not matter now, but 20 years from now it would be a huge deal, and I could not do that to him. If a man is 40, is dating a pair of 20-year-olds equivalent to dating one 40-year-old? In addition, there is the fact that he is going to begin having health issues and just being older, are you prepared to take care of him and be his nursemaid when you are in your forties and beyond? He's ridiculously mature for his age, and he is absolutely gorgeous. I find myself constantly mentally preparing myself for the ultimate break up. We had a daughter when I was 39 and a son when I was 42. Never understood the mentality of older guys going for chicks that young.
Anyway If the law says it's okay and she wants it too, you should just do what feels right. I meant that the most important person should be your spouse, not the kids. Yet societal norms still exist. Then you have to go through the emotional hell of leaving a man you love in every way so that you can fulfill your dream of becoming a mother. Even ten years one can start rationalizing. And what's wrong with dateing your peers in your case age is just a number and if it doesn't bother him, if he doesn't over think it then neither should you. On our 1st date he asked me if he could kiss me.
Have you ever dated someone significantly younger than you? He's also very unselfish and thoughtful of others. I wish you all the happiness in the world because God must think you deserve it! I have no children and very much one day hope I will be blessed with at least one. Go older or stay in your age range is what I say. That is rape in any language and has nothing to do with dating. You could end up with a six year old son with a sixty year old father. We play fight together, go to dinner we have genuine fun no matter what we do.
It took a while but we have been seeing each other for 1 year. Anonymous I'm currently dating an 18 year old and I have just turned 27, we are the best of friends and were for a while before dating. Our relationship lasted another 5 years but for us, the differences between our ages was too great as I was full thrust into my career and he was winding his down for very early retirement. For somebody aged 70, the bottom limit of respectability is 42. His only choice is young fertile girl. I sat there shocked that I could only think of one thing, I love reading.
My long term beau and love of my life is 7 years younger than me. Like my bf is 6 years younger than me but he looks older than me cause of our difference race. When I was 16 a 24 year old was trying to date me. I really love being with the person i am with but we get so much grief from some people about the age difference. It just doesn't work for me right now. If you are really so in love, you can bloody well wait 4 years.
Definitely something that needs to be figured out before you plant your flag on this guy. That term feels derogatory to me. I'm not patting myself on the back, but guys with my mindset are 1 out of every 20 guys my age and close to it to be honest. Also, remember that age is not an excuse You need to be realistic. Also, you keep posting, and those posts tell me that you really haven't thought this whole thing through, that you are caught up in the romance and fairytale, and you seem to be needing to push for people to agree with you, not give you their honest opinions. Everyone says we are a good looking couple too.
