So im writing a paper on this subject, and im wanting to get people's feed back. Is the saying true its just a number? Any thoughts, opinions on it?
Hi:) I think I can share something here...Sometimes I think when us older men want a relationship with a younger lady....many times it "really" isn't about the physical, even though it probably looks that way. Even though our 50 ish ladies don't think about sex as much and we still do, I think it's a deeper psychological thing for us. We don't want to get old and in our mind a younger lady won't let that happen. We want to keep on "living" and having fun. We've worked hard, but aren't ready to curl up and watch TV...........we wanna party. A young lady is someone we can share our knowledge with and have conversation with...........it's enlightening. We want to remain in the game, but deep down it's not about sex, it's about life. The younger gal brings emotions out of us that we had forgotten about. She is an inspiration to our ego and we will treat her like a queen, many times foolishly. The male "mid life crisis" can be as bad as female menopause.You've worked, provided, sacrificed, your back is in two all the time, you DO what you are supposed to and you NEVER complain about it because you are a MAN and the world will cut you no slack whatsoever. We like the young ladies because we want to entertain them, make them laugh, talk with them, if a relationship turns into something more then that's a bonus. (I can't believe I just admitted all that)...............:)
I think it does depending. If the two people are in completely different stages in their lives it is unlikely it will work out. Like, what does a 50 year old and a 20 year old have in common? I think it does work sometimes but it is rare and to be honesty I see more older men wanting a hot young body though I have seem it work, and it can work but it really depends on the two individuals. When it comes to younger people, like teenagers, some of which shouldn't be in relationships in the first place, a year or two is a huge gap and they should just stick to kids their own age.
mmm thats tricky ok see my mom started dating this guy when he was 17 and shes was like 34 thats 17 years apart n it dident work he was wayyyyy to immature n they were at different points in there life i believe a huge age gap cant work.... n im 19 n my bf is 27 n age does get in the way like were not at the same points in our life he wants a family n i just wanna get my stuff together but were trying to make it work
Maturity is one of the key thing to talk about not age, but for underage couples I think that it is really sick if the people are more than 2 years apart. And the only underage overage couple that should happen is if the couple was already together and the older one just turned 18 or if it is like 17 and 18. But I think once people are over 20 it is really about maturity not age.
Age doesn't matter when both people are over 20ish, but I really don't like seeing 13 year olds with 18 year olds, it's just sick and weird and wrong. I am 20 and my partner is 23 and I think thats fine, whereas 14 and 17 is too big of a gap for that slightly younger age group, even though it's the same gap.
Age matters to a certain extent (As long as it's legal!) , but really it's about the maturity of the people involved. More often than not a 40 year old lady will be more mature than a 20 year old man. But if a 20 year old and a 40 year old like/love each other then it doesn't matter.
Well my parents are actually 21 years apart and they are still married after many, many years. it all depends on the person and, like the others said, it depends on maturity level. My dad looks and acts really young so it kind of works out haha
Don't get me wrong, we wanna take them to bed too, but it isn't the foremost thing on the mind of some of us............:)
I agree with Laura. And age IS just a number. Maturity is the main important thing Here.
I think maturity of the two people in the relationship is what really matters
Wow?! Fascinating :O lol may I ask their ages when they got married?
Nice thanks lady's your opinion is very valuable :)
My mom was 21 and my dad was 42 I think.
