Age Difference
Seriously

New Haven, KY

#1 Mar 19, 2013
I am a 44 year old male, divorced with kids. I have met a fantastic woman but am afraid she is "too young". What is considered too young these days? I do think that public perception has something to do with the success of a relationship, right or wrong.

She has a small child that I love, my kids are a bit older but we all get along so well!

Should I pursue or just drop it?

Yes, of course she is over 18! Actually in her late 20's and I don't consider myself a "perv". Just two people that have a mutual attraction, but have some years between them. I bet most people that didn't know me would think I was in my mid 30's.

I think age difference is only an issue up until a certain point; what's more important is the age of those involved. Obviously a 10-year age difference is going to matter if it's 18/28, but not so much when it's 28/38, for example. To me, as long as both parties are at least 25 (the age when MOST people are adults), the distance between them is irrelevant. In a world riddled with problems we can't solve, true love is priceless and doesn't come along very often. If you find that you are both compatible and have genuine feelings for each other, I say go for it! Only YOU are responsible for your own happiness. Life is too short to worry about other's opinions.

First off you both have children and that should be your number one concern. Be willing to sacrifice your happiness and what seems right for what's best for them. Other than that I believe that you will have a chance at a good dating relationship but a chance at a happy marriage will be slim due to the fact that you are both in completely differently parts of your life. Think about the fact that she wants to start a family with you and she's 30 and your 50. You're thinking I will be retired before my kids out of high school and she's thinking I want kids before I'm to old to have them. Most importantly both parties need to put their children first.
good point

most older men who dates young girls do so because they are unable to date women in their own age group due to their own lack of maturity.

I don't think age should be a factor unless one party is in late teens or early 20's. Different people have different lifestyles -- some had kids later in life and some early in life. It all depends on their interests and likes and those "two" individual people. There are no right or wrong answers. For me, I'm active, do not have small children, and am not ready for a rocking chair or a man with grandkids so a younger man suits me just fine.
