Older Men?

Is it okay to date an older man... 13 years older? We are very compatible and the chemistry is obviously there. He doesn't seem to think anything of our age difference. However, it is something that I think about from time to time. Is it wrong of me to date such an older man?

I find nothing wrong with it at all. My ex was 12 years older than me. The only thing I could see is you and him settling down in activities at different times. Like you may want to do something and he may be sore or tired. Age does that to people. I would not date anyone that much older anymore for this one reason. But,lucky me my man is only four years older. But,he is breaking sown slowly. LOL

Lol I understand what ur saying. He's in perfect condition physically. He's 31 but physically appears as though he's 25. Thanks for the advice though.

Come on, it is just dating, age shouldn't get in the way for you and your date. As long as you are feeling comfortable and happy with the man you want to meet, age is just a number, your inner feeling and impression toward him is more important for you to consider than his age. Don't need to worry unnecessarily, you are just going out for a date, not marry an old man.

As they've said, "Age doesn't matter". Yes, it's okay to date a men older than you, what's important is that you are compatible with each other and you like each other. Dating a man older than you is also a good idea because they treat you differently.

Love chooses no age. You can date anybody without age limit as long as you both feel the same way. There are other situations out there that the age gap is very big. It doesn't matter.

I think there is nothing wrong with you dating an older man than you are. Does he look like really old that people would even say you are his daughter? i mean.. even so people have no right to question your decision and hinder your happiness. When you love this person then so you made the choice and it is yours alone. People will talk, let them talk. You, however should be happy you found the perfect man for you - does not matter if he is older, younger, etc.

As the old saying goes, "age doesn't matter". I do believe that whatever is the age gap, it will not matter as long as their is love. I even have friends who got married to older men and they are contented with their life.

No there isn't anythrong wrong dating an older man when of legal age where no laws are being broken. You can't help how old the person you love is or will be.

Its only wrong if you believe it so! Older men desire younger women because its human nature for a man to feel the need to plant his seed in fertile ground. Thirteen years is only the blink of an eye to an older man. When I was 13 I thought age 23 was old and 33 was ancient!

Do you think it's wrong? since ages men find it normal to date way younger women, the other way round they find it strange. According to me it's more normal to date a younger man. Why? Because women get way older as men do and sexually men are at their top at the age of 18/20 and women at the age of 35. Still if you like someone or love him I think there are no borders. So do what is good for you.
