People can connect in all sorts of ways. Now she's telling me we should just be friends. If she really wants to be with you then why the secrecy. I just hope she change her thoughts about this and stop worrying about what people are gonna say before it's too late. Never realized how much I have to offer him in the way of experience. So she knows I'm serious about this. With ladies like these, all men would jump at the chance to be by their side.
But yeah, it could be totally normal. I really do like her but I'm not trying to keep telling her that because maybe it won't do any good. Just love and keep your partner happy. How he came to the reality of my age was his present wife who constantly called me an old hag and names I won't go into here and pointing out the fact of the age gap! In fact, it was a while back that an eighty years old married a 22 years old. I'm a 26 year old man, I have a huge crush on a 38 year old women. It may not seem fair, but that's just how the chips fell in nature.
I have this guy at my gym I've been friends with for awhile. I'm a 35 year old woman falling in love with a 23 year old guy. You want to find someone that you can see and hang out with at least once a week. There are few different answers to this question. Age is mind over matter, if you don't mind, it doesn't matter. If you love him and he loves you - go for it. She was physically unable to do these things with him.
Quote: Originally posted by Lonestar I already had one friend tell me I can't date him, because I'm gonna break a kid's heart. I realize we're at different stages in life, but I'm not planning on marrying him. He had recently ended a 18 year marriage prior to dating his seasoned gal. While a man at 40-45 still looks his prime and attractive to young females if he takes care of himself, its not the same for women. And if she is scared of others judging her, than trust me, she has made bad judjment over and over and her family is tired of it.
Start kicking in and mentally men find themselves more and more attracted to the younger women. Love like its no tomorrow, smile and enjoy. I been living on my on since I had my first child when I was 17. Age difference does matter if a woman is much older. I think you know what you want to do, so I say best of luck! It's been 3 months we been seeing eachother secretly though.
Most of the time I don't even notice the age difference. Maybe you were too desperate that you ended up choosing a much younger man. Single men at my age group have a far more difficult time finding women our age who is single, no kids, never married, no more than 3 divorces, no hangups and genuinely interested in men at all. A 22 year man going out with a 37 years old lady is only 15 years apart. I would have to wonder though how much you really have in common. She tells me about her personal issues and Im not the one to judge. If I only had a 10 year age gap here, I probably wouldn't have second guessed it or made this post.
So that's how I know her heart wants me badly but her mind is telling her lets just be friends. Is 15 years too broad an age gap to date someone? But then, if I already know the older person, I am probably in a good position to know whether it's creepy. I just miss him and I just wonder sometimes if he ever misses me and I know i shouldnt be looking for validation. As for what other people think, don't worry about it. My girlfriend too says she likes me because I've got a lot of depth and experience for my age. I say that becUse if u are a person of greoat stand up character, or even a person that has a few flaws but overall, usually make good decisions, their opinion wouldn't even matter at all. Should I pursue it, or should I let it go knowing that she doesn't wanna do this? If she is embarrassed or ashamed then she is not comfortable in having a relationship.
Mine was 15 yrs my junior and I am a very young person for my age and my looks are not telling either! If you think that you might earn undesirable reputation, you can always hide from the world. Though be aware that you're still young and lots of things might change about yourself. I suppose I'll find out soon enough. She was hesitate at first to confess her feelings to him because she felt the age thing was a big issue. My significant sidekick of 3 years now was with a woman 12 years older than him before we were together. First off you both live really far apart.
But the 21 yr old should take her own advice he is 14 years her senior! They love to have some young studly buck come over and hit on them just as much. In this regard it's not that the women 35+ don't appeal to them emotionally or whatnot, but it's in essence a way to cling to their youth. I don't think of her as a dine and dash just someone I'd love to know more and see where it goes. The other reasons are mainly psychological. Why do you care what people will say? She says she doesn't wanna disappoint them. I really do like her but the age gap is a problem well not to me.
I'm 22 year old guy dating a 42 year old woman and my family ain't happy about it but I'm happy with her and she feels the same way, the only thing holding us back is my parents because I didn't want to keep things from them. We are so similar in our ways of thinking, our core values, what we want from life, everything really and we seem to have a deep soul connection. Just confess your undying love and follow your heart. Like your story I have been the main driving force behind it because, like you, she is hesitant, worries about the age, worries about this, worries about that. But I believe you see this with women as well. I am dating in my own age group and it is highly satisying! I look back and say hmmmm wtf was I thinking, but reality was he pushed this to happen.
