    After reading the comments in "Older Men and Younger Women" I am interested to see how the destee community feel about the Older Woman dating the Younger man.

    Have you been the Older Woman or the younger man?

    What were your reasons for being in this type of relationship?

    I have to admit - my reasons - MAKE ME BLUSH. :smokin:

    I've seen many couples where the woman was the oldest
    just like men like to date younger women , it's also that older women
    like to date a younger guy not all feel it's good or right to date a young guy
    for she may feel he's not ready or manly to all the responsibility
    I was once dating a older woman it was no different then dating a woman my
    age the only thing was she had 6 years on me at the time i was 24 she was 30
    i had no reason none other then that we saw something in each other as hit it off .

    Be Careful



    In my first marriage I was married to a woman 5 years my elder. We had fun for a while but the relationship soon dissolved like alka-selzer. Though 5 years is not that much of a difference it is when you are 20 and your wife is 25 especially if she has younger male siblings. No respectable older sister under 30 would date her younger brother's friends (Well in some cases anyway). This is not a big deal when you're over 30. The older you get the less it matters unless you're looking for a plaything. :D

    I don't think age matters

    Unless she got twenty years on you. It is really about personality and heart. If you still can complement each others strengths and weaknesses it does not matter.

    so true but age may become a factor in the later years if she had years on him
    just like a male friend of mines he was 20 years older and now he slowing up
    but she like a spring chicken party and clubs he at home looking for rest
    been there and done that for him but she in her prime the age will become a different
    and change emotions and feelings also open doors for cheating !
    maybe pure true love and commitment , loyality and honesty can keep the flame burning

    My wife was seven years older then me. It didnt work out not because of our age difference, but because we were working towards two different goals.

    Now my girlfriend is eight years my senior. When two people love each other age doesnt matter in most situations.

    You see, the difference is I can handle older women just like I can handle younger women. The only difference between being with an older woman and being with a younger woman, is to be with older, they expect you to have more money. All in all, Age IS nothing but a number, but some older women like mature, expensive men. Essentially, you just have to be mature enough. Money comes later.

    all women are younger than me............

    back when i was married, my wife was older than me.
    it broke up because i was too immature at that time (some say i still am, but that's another story)

    I find it interesting that younger women and men who claim to be so mature and can handle being with an older man or woman NEVER seem to find each other. If there are so many people in their 20's (women and men) who are so mature, why can't they find someone around their age that are just as mature?

    The age difference does come into play as you get older. That's one of the few complaints I've heard from people who are in relationships with a big age gap. A lot of people tend to throw caution to the wind when it comes to finding someone to love. I can't blame them. I guess people just want to find someone that they can get along with. A drop in expectations is to be expected I suspect. :D
