But, I'm sensing from your comments that you're more worried about the psychological and emotional side. My husband is 12 years older than me and it took awhile for my parents to except it but they came around and understood that we were in love. I am and was mature for my age and i get that from my father.
I was having breakfast the other day with a friend who was giving dating advice to his son.For purposes of his anonymity, I am going to call just call him "Son." My friend said, "Son, you're 18 years old, so I am going to tell you how you date.Since you are 18 years old, you are allowed to date a woman half your age plus seven." Son looked at him and said, "Alright, Dad.You're 50, so that means you can date a woman who is 32.Now you're dating someone 11 years younger than you. Wow, at 70, the 42-year-olds are probably some of your daughter's friends from high school who grew up hanging out at your house and who have now gone through divorces. When women date younger men, they are called "cougars," and people say they are messing around with younger guys.
Your friends are going to be really impressed that you can date a younger woman. She's been around the block a bit, but she's still not a luscious, incredible woman over the age of 30 yet. So at 46, you finally get to have incredible sex with a beautiful, mature woman -- but you have to wait 46 years to do it, according to this urban legend. That makes sense, considering the fact that an 18-year age difference is something to which you should really be accustomed. So finally, after all these years, you can actually date the kids you knew when they were kids. That's exactly what women are looking for at that age. Here they are, still looking great, young and fantastic, and there you are with your skin sagging everywhere. There is a negative connotation to a woman dating a younger man. Maybe try dating people who are within seven years of your age -- on either side.Women that marry older men suffer from an attraction to their own father much like many men marry women extremely similar to their mothers. I'm 40 and I wouldn't consider a woman under 30, besides the fact that the under 30 generation is one of the worst generations to go through school in the United States which makes them spoiled and incredibly stupid.A lot of men also need to understand that women don't mature sexually fully until they are 25.Especially if they are 18 or older you legally have no say in what they do. In September my 26 yr old daughter is getting married to a 40 year old man who has 2 children.She is a college educated adult who has repeatidly proved her abilities to make good decisions and take charge of her own life.A lot of guys do like younger women, especially older guys, sometimes because it is reaffirming to their sense of virility and sometimes for purely physical reasons.
