The way I see it there are 40 year old men who are committment phobes and very immature so if she finds a 25 year old who she likes what is. When my year-old son told me he was bringing his new girlfriend home to meet me, President inspired Kathy Lette — until her year-old son dated an older woman “Clearly you're only as young as the man you feel. Okay, so long story short, I met this woman and she's 42 years old. My 19 year old friend went out with his best friend's mum who was 40, they If a 42 year-old guy had a 25 year-old GF then people would not bat an eyelid.
Hey there! Welcome to the Digital Spy forums. Sign In Register. Join Digital Spy's first reader panel - we'd love to hear from you. Okay, so long story short, I met this woman and she's 42 years old. I am actually quite fond of her; she's really gorgeous and looks 10 years younger than she is. The one problem is, she has 3 children and the eldest is 18 years old. Would it be strange for someone my age to date a woman who is nearly twice my age? I think she definitely wants to date too, no flings or casual encounters.
I am a tiny bit uncomfortable about the fact that her children are in their teens.
What do you people think? Pandora 9 Posts: 2, Forum Member. If two people are happy and want to be with each other and they dont have a problem with the age differance, then thats the important thing, NOT what other people think, i am 12 years older than my wife. I'm 13 years younger than my partner. Providing you both want the same things where's the problem?
Go for it. CM Posts: 33, Forum Member. Some women like toy boys so go for it. It wouldn't suit me I like older men, I always have. My 19 year old friend went out with his best friend's mum who was 40, they dated for 5 years. He and is best mate were still really good friends but only until they split. To be fair, it didn't really work simply because of the difference in maturity, which can come with such a large age difference. This is a gender thing really isn't it? If a 42 year-old guy had a 25 year-old GF then people would not bat an eyelid.
But when the woman is older some people react differently. My view is that if you like her, she likes you and you make each other happy then go for it! I don't think it's a problem. If you both want a relationship, go for it. Uffa Posts: 1, Forum Member. I wish you all the luck. Be happy enjoy that young man. Absolutely true…well im 50 and he is 24 he is so amazing guy and age is no matter as long he is caring and trust we together for year he is a wonderful love not in bed Love is import and our love is beautiful and great communication each other…he is crazy over and love my heart ….
If both are of legal age, then age means nothing! Many women have dated and married men MUCH younger and have been very happy with it. Ladies, if you have this chance then why not enjoy? Forget what others might think or say! Most of them would do the same. For centuries men have married women who were very young and it is accepted, its time for us women to have equal billing!! I find myself lost in conversation with him and he is smart, witty, polite, caring and wonderful on so many levels.
I have no children yet and I want some, he also wants to have children with me. Men do it all the time, why such a stigma for an older woman and younger man?
I think God put us in a place to meet for a reason and I can see myself falling head over heels for him every second of the day. I find myself speaking to men my age and loosing interest.
I think love wins above all. I hope to read a story about long lasting love despite age. I am 43 years old and presently in love with a 25 years old guy. I am african ethnicity and he is an Indian…. I totally agree I am dating a 24 yr old lovely man I am My daughters are getting used to the idea. I live with them.
A women interested in men in their 40s on a date with a year means your year-old man knows what he wants in terms of dating and. Whether your love life takes you older or younger, high or Lo, our sex I had a game I liked to play with this younger guy, a hilarious invention of my in Grumpier Old Men and tell me that a year-old woman can't be hotter and who may see a year-old going to dinner with a year-old and make. Older men often date younger women, but everyone can benefit when the age A year-old woman will have better luck messaging a year-old man than a.
I dont know what the future holds. He is just lovely. I love the fact i am not the only one that something like this. I am 35 my man is 20 and when i found out i was surprised. He was much more mature then my x that was 35 and any of the older men that tried to pursue me.
I dont look 35 so it caught him by surprise when he found out my age. We have a strong connection. We want the same things in a relationship, we are the same when it comes to standards, values, raising. I was amazed at this. I know!
HE…feels secure…. I can admit I had a difficult time during my early stages of marriage. Women who rise from a broken up family tend to be better in time. I have a very close friend in her early 50s who looks AMAZING for her age, plays bass in a rock band, is a very lively active woman with lots of young interests.
She is approached by younger guys, guys in their late 20s, ALL the time for dates. She goes out with some of them. She falls in love with some of them. Until a few months goes by…. They want to settle down and have a real serious girlfriend they can take home to mom, and all of a sudden it starts to weird them out that my friend could BE their mom. They love hanging with her but are often embarassed to bring her around their friends.
And it brings a lot of depression to my friend. So, in my opinion, stay within your age range and steer clear of the youngins. They just want to play. Thanks for putting it into the words I needed. It all depends on the person. The young ones are more progressive and I like that. Please do not give up.DATING A 40 YEAR OLD AT 17
I was 25 when I met my wife who was then then Neither of us is the slightest worried by that fact, and we have travelled over all of Europe and to America. Keep your figure, your sense of humour, and be ready to try new things. There is a younger man out there for you if you want him!! Thank you David for such a beautiful story. I am 46 and look He has pursued me knowing my age, but I have resisted because of my belief that this could never work. I am now rethinking it…. Thanks David for the feedback and it really puts things in perspective for me.
Live and Let Live I say! Thinking about it today. I feel you. Then I found out, the 38 yr old I was living with for a while.
Then I found someone my own age. He ended up being a shady liar. I thought I could keep it casual. We both have feelings for each other, but he thinks we are doomed. And it can be hard to turn them down. They are a lot of fun, and the sex is great. Have fun with it. I can totally relate. I am just giving up. I was 44 when I met my now-husband.
So if someone is 30 years old, according to these rules, they should be dating So, what age is appropriate for a man? If a woman's maximum age range is 40, she is more likely to date someone who is around even though you are only 25 and still have lots of fun with your friends on the weekend. I was once a 26 year-old man dating a 49 year-old woman. Can a year-old woman date a year-old man and do you think it will last?. It's not the generalisation, or the brass neck of a guy who is 50 himself, and Likewise, the cliche is that young women date older men because they are richer, After that, I wondered how grown up 34 really was, and started going out with a year-old. “Tony would never go out with a year-old.
He was The year age difference has made very little difference in our relationship. He is kind of an old soul and had no desire to have kids. I am entering my peak years, starting to think about retiring in ten years if all goes well, and he is still in the building phase. He has more energy than I do, but not enough to create problems. That said, we are only 11 years apart, not twenty-five. Would I have dated a year-old when I was 43?
Guys in their twenties were, to me, terribly earnest and always seemed to be trying to prove how cool and mature they were. It usually wound up being more amusing to me than anything.
But if this particular guy you are impressed with wants to take you out on a date, go. What do you have to lose?
You never know who the great love of your life is going to be. I truly do expect to be with him until death do us part. I believe men have a biological clock too. Something to think about when contemplating dating someone much younger with LTR in mind.
Also, at any age you might find you relate well to an individual s who are much younger, but come to find out not on every level. Each relationship lasted less than 2 yrs. If a dalliance is okay go for it. But if you are wistful for someone to grow old with, dating out of your generation is not an ideal place to look.
For both genders. If I go to match. Adoption takes years of bureaucracy and frustration. That is what I am looking for. To both posts about fertility being gone in a women who is 40—are you guys kidding me? I am 44, almost 45, still have a period and am still fertile. And yes you are right. We have different cultures but shes older then me with a gap of 19 years. Sure, the risks are higher in every aspect, but it is not impossible.
I think one the biggest issues would be starting fresh. Raising a baby when you have adult kids over I think giving someone much younger a chance is ok, just go in with an open mind knowing the relationship might end faster than expected. You never know, maybe the guy might change their mind about having kids.
I have been a single soul parent for a few years, as well as busy building my business and put romance on the back burner so to speak… until …. I am a youthful, active, attractive, happy, fun and healthy single Mom with two boys ages 11 and I have enjoyed conversations with a 25 year old over the last 8 months as attractive and enjoyable our brief encounters, never did I consider a potential anything past talking due to his age — we are 26 years apart. We have since had a total blast enjoying our time together on every level… we take it one day at a time as well as touch basis with our emotions one day at time… For now, we keep this new path in our relationship private and from my children as well.
Our friendship is most cherished first and foremost, but My Goodness… the intimacy, the sex, the love making — what a TOTAL pleasurable blast — I have had more fun and have felt more comfortable than ever in my adult life…. We are both aware that anything could change at any time such as Life in Generaland assure one another through open communication…. I had my son at 43 with no problem at all.
Its a gamble at any age. Just higher percentage as we age. I think women in the range you mentioned would feel the same. Looking good, feeling healthy and wishful thinking do not make a baby.
I was with a 35 year old woman when I was I used to I'd say, “Why would you date a younger woman when you can date an older woman?”. There's a very good reason that you don't see many 25 year old men with 45 year old women.
Im I know one who had 22! Most of these women were over forty when giving birth to the last ones. If was not a rare thing at all. Everyone is not the same. This is some women not all. Mind over matter I say. This is an absolutely shocking reply. What utter, complete bollocks! We are not a statistic, we are individuals.
We are all different. IN many countries and even here my aunts grandmother was having 10 plus kids past the age of 50 and all were healthy and strong including her. Ask any eskimo or explorer…naturally the earth warms up and cools down every so often. As women have become more sexually liberated, our bodies are adapting and responding in a way where we are staying fertile for longer periods of time. Our eggs are not aging as fast as they used to before the 50s and 60s.
A 45 year old can have FSH levels of a year old. There are many infertile young women age who have FSH levels of a 45 year old. However, that said, IVF success goes down significantly after Here, read this, and instead of keeping up the delusion that your FSH levels can singlehandedly make you fertile at age 45, get your facts straight. Get out of the books sweetheart and open your eyes. These people are sharing real life experiences and your throwing around info out of a book, Internet or wherever else you get them.
After all, my car was broken into on Tuesday! Evan is correct. Fertility starts declining rapidly at At 45 you may have normal FSH follicle stimulating hormone levels, but all that indicates is that you are likely still ovulating.
What neither disclosed is that they were very likely to have used donor eggs. And I get that. But it sure did give the public the wrong impression about what is possible. Male chauvinist propaganda wants women to believe this. Statistics are skewed. Men need to stop thinking they are so frigging invinsable. Chew on that sour grape for a bit. Women had babies very late in life many years ago.
In fact we are more susceptible to pregnancy because of our age and twins at that! If you are healthy strong and menstruating you are definitely fertile!
Whether or not it happens for any woman of any age is not in the least bit dependent on you Evan, what you think, believe or read in a book.
Worry about yourself Genius!!! This is my job. If you do not like my facts or opinions, you are welcome to look elsewhere for free guidance. Happy holidays! Googling fertility statistics for something women is enlightening. I suggest the author of this article revisits google and revises his biased opinion. Sorry that reality angers you.
The problem, of course, is that the only person hurt by your willful misunderstanding of female fertility is you. My OB told me that fertility stats are for regular women, averages.
He says I am not a regular woman. I have had 7 kids, never a problem getting pregnant, even at The stats have nothing to do with me. The reserve numbers are not the same as reserve quality and it only takes one good egg. I have 67 cousins on one side of the family, lots of older moms on both sides and my brood has been very carefully limited to 7. Lots of my gal friends lost interest in sex in their late 20s early 30s and needed fertility treatments then.
Some of us are just healthier albeit rare. Do you honestly think evolution happens that quickly before the 50s and 60s. Good God. Then again, maybe Oedipus is rearing his head. Who knows? And later on for him could mean when he wasat which point SHE would be All about getting your foot in the door, perhaps? Or, if a man who had children during a previous relationship brought kids with him as a package deal, then we just may be very open to that concept.
In twice as many abortions were performed on women over 35 than on teens. Women over 40 can still get pregnant, so even though the chance is lower than at 30, in a relationship, this has to be talked about.
25 year old guy dating 40 year old woman
Lynn, Since many singles in their mid-forties already have kids, I can see how checking a want kids? I never would have guessed that.
I totally agree Evan. They usually say, older women know what they want. Yep and this older woman would rather have someone her own age.
I agree. In fact, the first guy I dated after my divorce was 27 to my Our relationship was sweet, fun, and sexy.
He reminded me just how much living I still had to do, that I was still sexy, and that dating could be fun. For me, at least, after months, I really started wanting someone my own age that remembered and could dance to The Cure.
I have that exact same age gap with my husband. I am 44 years old. I met a year-old guy online last September for what was supposed to be a casual relationship. In December, he wanted to try having a full-blown, exclusive relationship. A couple of times, I broke it off because his job requires a lot of travel and he was always tired and sometimes canceled dates at the last minute. He would leave me alone for a couple of weeks and then contact me.
I would tell him I would not mind going back to the casual relationship, i. However, he did not want to do that. We have been doing well for the past couple of months or so. We talk openly about what we want from the relationship.
I have an year-old daughter. He has made it clear from the beginning that he does not want any children. I was engaged a few years ago and my ex-fiance and I tried to have a child for a year he is younger and has 2.
Ditto with the boyfriend after him. So, I did not think I could not get pregnant. Well, with current boyfriend the year-oldI did get pregnant, but miscarried after 6 weeks. Boyfriend said he would have lived up to his responsibilities had I gone to term. However, he was very relieved that I miscarried and is now convinced he does not want children.
I read through this thread and am now very nervous. It seems that none of you give a relationship like this a chance. I am 12 years older than my husband and we are happier every day. People need to step off the age thing unless it causes some catastrophe. Its annoying. But each year after the 10th year is stressful especially when the younger partner is in early 20s.
Im with you on that one! Im finding this much younger man to be more mature than most men I meet my age!! I am 44 and full of energy and I found that I got bored with my husband whos 47! Most have been I always tell whomever asks me to date to see if we get along and then tell them my age a couple to three months into our relating. One 27 yr old insisted on going to take me out to lunch, traveling, hanging out at the beach and he was super attractive.
We spent a year together. I only get involved with those that know they want an older woman to be with and have fun with normally.
Men prefer younger women not for their firmer bodies – but their greater admiration
Actually glad my ex husband of 22 yrs ditched me for a younger filly with his ED. The stallions were worth the divorce. Beauty is fleeting but as long as I have the edge of being wrinkle free I will use it. Only one left, to go back to his ex with whom he had an infant.
Your view is its sickening so you think to made snide not so covert cutting remarks about older women staying in their lane. Just a relationship shift overall as the times change. Beside about have a great sex with, is it true that young man needs an older woman for his security financial? Haha on everybody else!
Thank you for your comment. I also know women who are in relationships and marriages with men 10 or more years younger. But people who want to keep the male chauvinist propaganda alive will always blind themselves to real life examples such as yours. I have been with my much younger man for 4yrs. I love him and he loves i look at it like any relationship its a risk a chance nobody can predict what will hhappen.
This gives me hope!!! I am 46 and have been writing a 33 year old now for almost 9 months. He lives in Rome, I live in LA. We are finally meeting in person this summer and I can not wait.
He wants a long term relationship but I keep thinking he will want a young hottie… I look great but I am not IMO men from other cultures are not as hung up on perpetually chasing the 20 year old skinny blonde trophy as American men are. Just my experience. If my guy had wanted a real relationship, I would have been all for it. As it was we had an on off for 3 years.
