dating a person 16 years older/younger than you, anyone ever done anything like it??
so lately I have felt myself getting close to a woman that is 40 years old, or 16 years or so older than me maybe a bit more (am 24, 25 come November). It's kinda freaking me out, I feel for her, but dunno if I could deal with the age or not. I know it's but a number but....just feels strange to me with that sort of a gap.

Has anyone here dated anyone that far apart from you in age, or known anyone who has? Has it worked out?
No one is perfect. A babe before walking will first stumble and fall many times but NEVER gives up until he succeeds.

Always remember, ultimately, to never follow any person's belief. Your relationship with God is between you and God.

If nothing else, remember this: religion = subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government

I dated a guy that was 15 years younger than me for a time.

How long were you with her?

I am getting the best of both worlds with this one really, she has a really high sex drive (to go along with mine), but also have had some good conversations lately too.

I lived with a 25 year old woman for a little over a year when I was 50.

As long as you both realize that it probably won't last it can be good.

You both have be willing and able to let go, when the time comes, no matter which one decides when it's time.

Hmm maybe this isn't so unrealistic after all....I should add to this though she has 2 kids from a previous marriage, of 7 and 13 years or so respectively.

I think some of my fears is based on the fact that as time goes on, the age gap will show a bit more if that makes sense. Maybe it's just me though idk.

Yeah the thing about her passing/aging more long before me is a concern, but.....at the same time could still have a good many years together before that yet.....

That's awesome it's worked for you, how old are your kids?

As I am thinking about it, I kinda want to give any kids I'd have a good family, solid home relationship that I never had, and I know she wants the same for her kids.....in that sense...maybe we could both achieve something like that here with her two?

I did, when I was 16 I had a relationship with a 33 year old woman. It was more of a horse riding relationship, stables, buckeroo, I learnt to drive a car on the road that led to the stables. All she needed was sex. Mostly in the car, sometimes at the stables. She got pregnant. I fuked up her horses foot, well she led the way, my horse followed. Good times. Very laid back

So just imagine how you would feel bringing her around your friends - would you be embarassed, self-conscious, etc? If so, that should tell you something right there. Imagine yourself with her when she's 50, 55 (ordering off the senior menu)60....

I was married to someone 5 years younger than me. For the first couple of years it was no problem, but after a few years the maturity gap started to reveal itself...and once that happened all of a sudden I saw differences in just about every area of our lives. Needless to say, I'm not married to her anymore.

Re: dating a person 16 years older/younger than you, anyone ever done anything like it??
My wife's parents are 7 1/2 years apart and it is sad to see what that age gap has done to them late in life. They have been married for 57 years - she was 16 and he was 23. She is now 73 and still very active and outgoing. He is now 80 and deteriorating in health and tires easily. It is really taxing on their relationship and is causing her to become a nursemaid instead of his wife/companion. Not the way I would want to spent my senior years.

I don't think a 5 year age difference had anything to do with the failure of your marriage.

I read a study that suggasted that a 6 year age difference, that is, the man 6 years older than the woman, is the ideal.

This conclusion was reached by analysis of marriage and divorce data, strictly by the numbers.

The data also suggested that the farther you stray from those ideal numbers, in any direction, the lower the possibility of the marriage surviving.

So lets do the math.

16 years + or -

Currently if I go - the gurl will be 9

If I go + she will be 41

I better move in the + direction or else adjust the time line to 18 and over.

Five years huh? You had issues over (5?) five years? Wow. In my opinion, the small age gap wasn't the driving force behind splitting up. I'm guessing you had & possibly still are, having issues over your sexual orientation. It happens. Go with it if you're feeling it. Be gay. Just be truthful with us at GLP. Don't deny your sexuality. Embrace it. thumbs

Re: dating a person 16 years older/younger than you, anyone ever done anything like it??
I married my husband at age 29 and he was 45 ~ that was 8 years ago and we had dated for 2 years so together now for 10 years. It has worked out well for us - our friends and relatives thought it weird at first but we did not care - as another commenter said love is love. Turns out I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 30 so was unable to have children even if I wanted to - it worked out though because he had 4 children from his previous marriage - they are awesome and we have an awesome relationship - the youngest (20 yrs. old) I just took to the airport this morning so she can head back to college. The crazy thing is that we used to joke before getting married about him getting old and me having to change his diapers ~ but my breast cancer is stage IV so chances are I might be the first to die ~ in the end age is really just a number ~ we just enjoy each day we are given as it comes ~ it has worked for us and I would not trade a thing!

Re: dating a person 16 years older/younger than you, anyone ever done anything like it??
I'm thirteen years older than my husband. We've been together ten years, and each year gets better. The life span thing...well...women in my family generally live beyond 90. Men in his family, heart issues, generally don't reach 70. We are both currently healthy, happy, and realistically I will even with our age difference outlive him.

For us, it works. Neither of us particularly want children, although we both understand that at some point we could end up raising nieces or nephews. We got lucky finding one another. We both know that, too.

If you make important decisions in your life based on what people or society might say or think, well...you'll end up financially over extended, over stressed, and miserable.

I lived with a 25 year old woman for a little over a year when I was 50.

As long as you both realize that it probably won't last it can be good.

You both have be willing and able to let go, when the time comes, no matter which one decides when it's time.

Yeah.....if I was gonna go into this, even if I was to marry her....I'd have to accept the fact that it likely wouldn't last for the rest of my life at the very least. There's a lot to consider here.....ages...kids....
