A moral question

Being that I'm a man in his late 30's, at what point should I be e-chastised for dating outside my age range?

I'm in something of a pickle. I have a, uh, younger girl who is -hrmm, how shall I put this?- making advances, and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to be a good boy.



The kicker of it is, I'm not even trying which, of course, is all very odd. I normally try very hard to treat a woman with affection and respect, typically resulting in my getting taken for granted and/or eventually dumped.

(Chain twists open another bottle of the cold sudsy stuff and waits)

Re: A moral question

I'd say at your age, if she is 21 or older, than congratulations. Where is it written in law that you can't date someone younger? It's certainly not in the bible. If she is legal (18 yrs of age) or older, you aren't violating any laws of this country. Many women like older men, nothing wrong with that.

Re: A moral question

I really don't think that age matters in a physical sense (as long as it's legal ). I dated an 18 year old when I was in my mid twenties, and and 19 year old when I was 32. In fact, I've mostly dated girls who were younger than me. I just started dating a girl who at 35 is one year younger than I am. Quite frankly, I'm having such a good experience with this that I'll may never date a girl who is much younger than me ever again. Have some good clean (or not so clean) fun with it though.

Re: A moral question

Depends what you are looking for. If she is late 20's there is a better chance of common ground and a long term relationship. If you are looking for sport, 18

Oops and if she is a coworker late 20's. A young jilted psycho at work would make life rough.

Re: A moral question

as logn as you don't have a problem with it who cares what anyone else thinks, my boss is 50 I think and his girlfriend is 24 (or around there somewhere) I believe.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: A moral question

My father started dating his now wife of 10+ years when she was 23 and he was 40. My dad is now 59 and she is 42. I consider him to be a stud for pulling this one off. She has always been attractive. I had the unfortunate place of being only 14 years younger than her so I am closer to her age than he is. We even had some of the same high school teachers! GO DAD!

As long as her maturity level is acceptable then I think you have nothing to lose but lot's of sleep and semen.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Not bad, but my dad is 65 and has a 35yo wife (54/24 when they were married). My step-mom is 5 years younger than me.

Maybe I should be posting this in the family thread.

Been there, done that. Not a pretty scene.

The problem is, I'm not really looking for anything. Pretty happy going it alone just now. Do what I want, when I want, for as long as I want. Phone doesn't ring, I'm obligated to no one, responsible only for myself.

Selfish?

Perhaps, but after well over a decade of of worrying about others (my ex-spouse of almost eight years followed by my g-friend and her son for the last 3+), well, it feels pretty good doing as I please.

At least for now.

Edit: For the record, my divorce followed by the subsequent g-friend (some months later) did not have anything to do with one another. Just for the record, makes me feel better that you guys know it in case someone read the post above and did a little math; one didn't cause the other.

And here I was feeling a little creepy going out with a 21 year old!

Maybe I ought to just say as Tom Cruise did in Risky Business.
