I just found out that a former friend of mine is dating a guy that is six years younger than her. This was very shocking for me because this girl is very well known around here and could have her pick of men closer to her age that actually have a career and a future. I don't know the guy, so I'm not trying to be disrespectful toward him, but dam. Is this the new thing now?

Maybe she just wants to party and have a good time with the younger guys. I can understand that. As long as they are both over 18, it's cool.

I know of a few who date younger guys. They're all highly intelligent career minded women who put their social life on hold in order to pursue a career and travel and to live their life. Most of them say it's because all the guys their own age are either married or divorced with kids already. Some women don't like baggage and I can't say as I blame them. I wouldn't want a ready made family and the obligations from the get go either. I'm sure it also doesn't help that most guys around here tend to put on about 50 lbs or more after their late twenties or early thirties. Lots of women don't like that either. Of course it works both ways too.

Why is it okay for a husband to be 6 years older than the wife but not vice versa?

I see what you're saying about it being ok for guys to date girls that much younger. This one relationship just has me so confused. I guess as a late 20's female, I have no idea why someone around my age would want to date a guy that just entered his 20's. I don't see how they could offer any future or stability. They haven't even lived life yet. Seems to me like your setting yourself up for heartbreak.

Maybe some women don't feel the need to get married or commit themselves just yet? By dating somebody younger, they don't run as much risk of having a guy who wants a commitment and kids and to stay home and do the family thing. There's no little men in white coats that show up and inject you with something at 25 that makes you want to settle down. Everybody's different and want different things out of a relationship. Which is why I've found that it's always best practice to just mind your own business and let others do what they will.

You can't have double standards. Its ok for men to date younger women, but its weird when an older woman dates a younger man?

You said it perfectly! What's wrong with a Cougar? No one thinks twice when the guy is older! If they are happy, let them be! And why should a woman have to date an old man when some young thing is probably dating the guy her age? Thank you for your defense!!!

well i'm a 28 year old woman and my husband is 22.. when we got together i was 26 and he was 20.. so we are 6 years apart.. i don't see what the problem is or would be about that.. i don't party, my husband doesn't like the bar and clubs either, so we work, pay our bills, and act like a normal family with our son we have together.. age doesn't even weigh in on our relationship.. when we met, we didn't know how old one another were, but we still hit it off just like any other couple would.. i mean we are just 6 years apart.. we still went to school with the same people and know alot of the same people before we met.. i don't really think age matter's.. and like myopinioncounts2 said, it's ok for an older man like in their 50's or so date a woman in their early 20's, but it's weird for a woman to be just 6 years older than her man?? at least they are for the majority of it both in their 20's.. lol, i think this thread is totally ridiculous..

So, when you turn 29, that means he has only 6 years to catch up!
No way

i think i know the couple your talking about. Former standout athlete meets hometown "celebrity". i really couldn't care less about either of them but id say he's going to treat her the same as the others. ive seen him do it firsthand. i hope she doesnt think she any different.
