i met my bestfriend today at the mall and had dinner with her. she told me that he co worker, single and who is 42 years old is flirting with my bestfriend's ex boyfriend. "ms. 42" dated "mr.23" last sunday at KFC and had fun talking to him. the funny thing was ms.42 was so excited to tell my bestfriend about what happened to their date. we just laughed about it. ms. 42 knew how much mr.23 hurt my bestfriend in the past. and infact, ms.42 even sympathized with my girlfriend before when in pain upon breaking up. and now, ms.42 is dating mr.23! this is so hillarious!

Ms 42 is probably suffering from something if she thinks that he will stay with her forever. I do not see what a 42 year old woman has incomon with a 23 year old boy - and I do not think it will last to long - he probably just finds it exciting to be dating an older woman - but the excite,ent will wear off eventually!

yep. or maybe he's up for ms. 42's money since she is really earning well and that mr. 23 does not have a job at present.

That's crazy...Yeah, it sounds like the older woman probably wanted to hook up with this guy for quite some time. Let's face it; the Cougar phenomennon is huge in the US now; older women going for guys young enough to be their sons...Hey, us guys have done that with younger women for years; I see nothing wrong with an older woman hooking up with a younger guy, if that's what you're in to. I know you say you guys laughed about it at dinner, but how does your friend really feel about her older coworker dating her ex? I imagine it makes for a petty uncomfortable work situation. KFC for a first date? What's next, Chuck E Cheez???

yep. she did laugh about it. but i am not really sure about what she's feeling inside. i mean, just in one work place and they both will go through that one man? a bit annoying for her maybe.

I think women till age 28 look for older guys but after 28-30 they show interest in younger guys may b they feel more fresh when dating guys younger like 9-10 years, it's ll about chemistry, age is not a problem in my opinion.

i think that ms. 42 just has the hots for mr. 23. and mr. 23 just want to have an adventure with a 42 year-old woman..

i guess ms. 42's just tryin to have an ego-lift having mr.23 paying her some attention, or maybe just trying to jump into the bandwagon of demi moore and cameron diaz, hehe. well, i know how your bestfriend feels but if ms.42 isn't in anyway your friend, what 'courtesy' do you expect from her? just get even by lyao about it, lol!

actually, i have nothing against age gaps when it comes to love. the thing is, ms42 should atleast take time to know the guy first before getting into a relationship with him.

are you sure?maybe they are just talking about work.better you have a strong evidence to prove that the girl is flirting with your bestfriends x.i know is hard to accept such break ups but better not to make up stories.

yep. true. it's never right to make up stories. but, weeks had passed since i started this discussion. and yep. after i started this topic, days after, ms 42 admitted that they do have a relationship. it wasn't long though. last for more than a week. ms. 42 realized, according to her as she told my bestfriend, that the guy was just up for her money and not love. and thanks for the reminder. i appreciate it.

i think we must respect ms.42 for what her decision is. we change our decision many times so i think that happen to ms.42 also. we know that it is so hillarious but we need to respect her.

love has no age if it is love.but here I dont think this is flirting.It couldbe friendship.It is from what we see.If he dates a lady as old as his mother or aunt,it is just not going to work.Who knows what the relationship is.why talk ill about others when you are not sure of what exactly is going on hay!so my friend this wont be right.

i understand your point. but the thing is, ms.42 even was the one who had been telling my bestfriend to break up with mr. 23 since he's not worth it of my bestfriend's love. and now, she is dating him. that's annoying.

honestly you guys will prolly think im weird(mainly the females) but i used to wish some older attractive woman would have "tried to take action" with me.lol i dont know why but good looking older woman turn me on! i would pass up an 18 year old female for like a good looking 35 year old! whoa lol

actually, i have nothing against age gaps when it comes to love. i was just upset since ms.42 and my bestfriend are the two closest persons in the place where they go together and work.

It's disgusting to think but some people love to taste different waters. Who are we to judge them, but who knows they enjoy each other's company or not. It's really up to them, its there life after all. But for me, I dont think I'd like to date a 23 year old guy when I'll be 42. That's what I think now, but who really knows if I'll change my perspective. do you? Different people, different age, different outlooks. You'll never know until you get there. But for the time being while we are not in the situation, lets just laugh about it. Working in the same environment? thats not comfortable workplace to be!

i really agree with you. let's not judge them for if it's their happiness, then, let them be happy! well, 4 weeks had passed since i started this discussion. and yep. they did have a relationship which just lasted for more than a week. ms 42 realized that mr.23 was only up for her money and broke up with him after. it's just sad that people do this just to benefit themselves. i hope ms.42 gets to have someone to really love her.

It is hilarious to a point i agree but i do feel for your best friend though. If you ask me Ms 42 is obnoxiously rude for even sharing this with your best friend and i think that Mr23 needs a real life!!!

yes. mr.23 needs to rest awhile since he had been playing with girls all the time.

sounds like she just wanted a try at it and maybye he likes older women or he could be a womenizer too/could be just nsa fun too/i dated and married older women and idid well age was not an issue my heart was there but i did find sometimes a self concious person breakin up with me and that hurt but now im older 42 and open to all women if they are not self concious and holding back any thing i would like to try a younger relationship and have children again under the advisment of my children telling me its cool dad

the thing was ms. 42 adviced my bestfriend to end up the relationship with mr.23 since my bestfriend had troubles with her ex since he plays with other girl behind her back. and now, she's the one dating the man. that's a bit crazy.

I would say for 42 she might be a little immature, wagging it in your friends face what she is doing, my advise ignore them and let them be if he is really out of your friends life she should not care one bit what he does with his time.

well, my friend ignores them. she's over with the guy. she just told me about it yesterday. and it was me who went "huh?". just can't imagine why there are people like them around.

i think this ms. 42 is mad or she is selfish and she is just bothered about how she enjoys in life but let me tell you one thing when this mr.23 hurts her and she will come back crying that is when she will understand what it is to be cheated

you are right.she should atleast have told my bestfriend that she's interested in seeing her ex. it's not a problem at all. but atleast for respect's sake.

I had a friend who warried a 23year old and she was 42 at the time their marriage lasted 8 years and then he met a girl more his age and that was it they are not together today .

i don't have anything against age gaps. love is love and age doesn't matter. but atleast, she should have told my bestfriend first that he's gonna see the guy rather than tell her after they already did it.

Love is very complicated. Nobody can know when you will feel this. Everyone can get love. And everyone can feel anything ;cos of love. Like me, I'm 20 years old but I fall in love with a man who 10 years older than me. Many people didn't believe this. But when we feel comfort with someone, that's too hard to leaving. You can't preview anything about love story. So full color :)

we're not judging them because of their age gap. age doesn't affect love. but we're into trying to figure out their actions. plus, the young man is texting almost all of my bestfriend's friends like he wanted to date all of them. so, it's so crazy.

Yes it is hilarious!But on my opinion I think ms. 42 just only wants a companion maybe?And besides we are now in a new generation.So maybe theirs nothing to shock anymore!:)
