Dating an older man can teach you a lot, especially about yourself (and what you do and don’t want in a partner), but it’s not always the easiest of relationships. Just in case you’re thinking of getting serious with a fella quite a few years older or even decades older than you, here are a few things you might want to keep in mind before you get it crackin’.
Actor Hugh Jackman has been married to Deborra-Lee Furness for 17 years. A recent article in magazine looked at a handful of real-life May-December romances, focusing mainly on those between older women and younger men.
The age gaps spanned anywhere from 10 to 14 years, with women in their late 40s and early 50s enjoying relationships and/or marriage with men in their late 20s or 30s. Couples in this situation had to address the fertility concern head-on, with some choosing to take the leap relatively quickly while others took a pass.
And then there’s also the concern about one’s looks.
I'm 19 years old and been dating a man who is 36 for over a year. hes so nice and caring, respectful, and i have a great time with him. as long as you are happy and your family likes him.isnt a difference if you care and love someone.. and your freinds are younger so im sure they bust your ****.. to love and to be loved then to never have it at all let them make opinions.dont think they are entitled to give judgments.. enjoy with ur bf..thats the best thing.mom accepts him.isnt sufficient? Do you have any problem with your bf in sexual part? If he is caring and respectful of you and you are having a great time - sounds good for you ! In the end it should all be worth it if he is the one.... Remember you don't need their approval, you do not have to allow them to come between you and your BF if they are anti him, but it will make things easier if they know things and support you. But have answers prepared for all the questions they may ask.
He’s busy studying for a major exam that will allow him to work for whomever he wants and to make the kind of moves and money I probably won’t ever see (hey, columnists weren’t meant to be millionaires).
With all that drive comes a lot of time we don’t get to share together.
In our hearts, if not in our heads, we’re convinced that love will always trump practical concerns such as money, social class, race and even gender. And what about age as it relates to older women involved with younger men?
Though men have been enjoying May-December romances forever, women haven’t been afforded the same freedom necessarily.
I am 41 and my bf is 57 going to be 58 in few months..... But i told my parents they said ok you have my blessings...a week later they acted a fool. Just make sure you are ready for emotional and mental stress ok ? I didnt want to, but after a while, you see your parents true colors and see if they really care about your happiness Remember: Those who mind, dont matter and those who dont mind, matter let me know if you need any more advice email me at Well handle it carefully..

Parties, rock concerts, nightclubs—I dated the way I should have when I was younger: for fun, without an eye toward marriage.
