He just told me he has liked me for years as he used to stop in and visit with the other kids my daughters age. We are considerate and say thank you and let each other know we appreciate one another just thru our actions continuing to be considerate and happily doing for the other.
I think one the biggest issues would be starting fresh. In fact we are more susceptible to pregnancy because of our age and twins at that! We have sent so many messages to each other and have video chatted on skype and since he lives about a four hour drive away, we've talked about making plans to visit. I am a 25 year old married to a 45 year old women. When he asked me if I'd consider marriage, I had to tell him no, but not because I don't love him. I think giving someone much younger a chance is ok, just go in with an open mind knowing the relationship might end faster than expected.
Its good if someone who is your spouse as good as your parents, but i really don't have an expectation deep within. Why does that one thing bother me? First marriage was for 13 years and yielded my 2 sons, second marriage was for 18 years and established my financial security and business. My reservation was that I am 29 in a month and he is 24 and not turning 25 for a while. Its been about a year now, so far its great, he is very serious about our relationship, and we never talk about our age difference. Its a lot of waiting, because where I come from, women who don't get married before 25 are considered 'old', but obv i have to make concessions for his age which I do happily. Its been a month and it's been fabulous.
By the time a guy hits his 50s, he should have traveled the world, a lot! I always tell whomever asks me to date to see if we get along and then tell them my age a couple to three months into our relating. Stepping away from him for ever. But again, I suppose it's because of the compatibility. He loves children but said that most people think they know the person they looking for to marry until they meet that someone special who just captures your ever being. Men my age are boring and hes full of life and treats me like gold.
Page 1 of 3 , , question for you. I never imagined marrying an older man or even dating one , but we were attracted to one another and it works for us. As long as you both are enjoying each others company -- enjoy. Caring about your apparence is important but you will have to always do it to appear younger and it will be such a frustration. For women seeing an older established man with a younger woman has the ability to make many women very insecure. Seeing how you've married someone 5 years younger I just want to know ur take on it.
I was married for 20 years, most of them not good. There is nothing wrong or gross or manipulative about dating a younger man. I should just stand up for myself, and tell them to keep their opinion to themselves. 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. Also, older typically men provide maturity, stablity, and are often just more interesting to be with. Because i remember i lost him at 11, and i have a distant memory you can say, where i was all the times in his arms. Not that i need financial support.
He sounds perfectly fabulous for you. They have the means to take care of you. She sends me cute little messages about love u and the sorts here recently. Yes that is their inmaturity that is. A lot of us have found ourselves attracted to somebody younger or older, and have been reluctant to act on it because of some perceived weirdness or taboo.
This same principal goes for personality, age, maturity level, intelligence, etc. We have different cultures but shes older then me with a gap of 19 years.

I know now that although it may not be an easy road I can still have a baby and I want so badly to have a family with him. I, for one, have been to every continent, except Antarctica. When we first started dating, women his age were really rude to me.
As for myself, I tend not to date someone more than 5 years older than me, but that is just my own personal preference. His boyish enthusiasm is like a breath of fresh air for me, and he enjoys my level of experience. Age does not determine your level of love anymore than going to a supermarket with no money will buy you groceries. I contend that as long as nobody is being willfully creepy I see you, guys in Ferrari hats , this kind of limitation is mega lame. My girlfriend right now is 24, we have been together for a year.
Just because they are young doesn't necessarily mean they are trouble, the older ones are also fully capable of trouble. I would have given him another chance because I really like him. He was 21 when we dated and I was 26. Think back to when you were that age. Then I found out, the 38 yr old I was living with for a while. It just doesn't work for me right now. Even moved in with him, and yes I objected.
