19 People Share What Happened When They Dated a Co-Worker
Normal in my circle. Quite happy that you came here with your questions, OP. There will be a few difficulties that you don't find in other relationships, but there are some things that might be easier. Men mature much later than women and normally middle age in men is the age of maturity.
Find the good stuff
I'd say just have fun with it - he's probably much more mature than other guys you've dated They are into hiking and biking and doing tampon commercial shit. Just makes sense to me. I am an idealist, I can't lie there. They are also thinking of the future There is no 4 pm phone call "Hey baby, I'll be home around We kept our romance secret to the point that we still have to lie to people about our anniversary.
Blow, dancing, other drugs. Stupid shit all the time. When I started to fall for him, I decided for myself that I needed to clean my act up.
I just realized that that kind of a woman was not someone the man I love should be with. He deserved the best. I have never felt more beautiful, sexy and smart. He learned how to not love a woman and learned how to love a woman in his years.
In addition to me realizing this, he has told me. I truly believe that every one needs to go through a lot in relationships whether quantity or quality to learn how to treat their partners. You don't get that from younger partners. He's in it for love.
My boyfriend is He's not a playboy type, he's not gallivanting all over the world. Hell, he left his job in music in NYC to come back to his hometown to settle his roots back down before I met him. Everything he does in our relationship, he does for me. I have never, ever felt that his love was shallow.
Mostly because I know he loves me, partly because he's too old and too tired to fuck around with my feelings. Or maybe I won't follow through. I feel like your brother has to get a divorce just to keep that up. Not saying this is a guarantee, but I guess don't go into this relationship expecting it to be temporary. You never know what might happen. You annoy him when you talk about your 24 year old problems stuff because he heard all that shit 15 years ago and now he's interested in talking about what 40 year olds talk about.
He loves talking about you to his guy friends, but is a little embarrassed to be seen with you at the places he visits as a "40 year old". So he'll take you to places that kind of split the difference.
I bet you go out to a lot of something kind of places? Maybe even dip down into the something dive bars? He probably really truly does like you. He enjoys you for being young and fun and lively and all that stuff that goes along with being an attractive 24 year old. He also enjoys the "conquest" aspect of things a bit but would never say it. But he is going to have a hard time reconciling the fact that he enjoys your company with the fact that he doesn't want to be the cradle-robber of his social circle, or to jeopardize his chances of being promoted at work if rumors fly.
Maybe your relationship will buck the trend and if so, congrats! But if history repeats itself as it so often does, try to make the most of it while you have the opportunity. I appreciate the honesty here. We are quite early on in our relationship right now and I believe we're just enjoying each others company Amongst other things! If that's all it turns out to be then that's okay. We've both decided to be up front and honest if we want to take anything to the next level and I wont expect anything else until it's discussed.
I have no issue with being a trophy for him in public, as long as behind closed doors we're intellectually matched and I can provide him with some companionship. We already tease about each others age when we notice it in situations and we definitely have a connection which is a good building point.
I see a lot a weird, deterministic opinions about how your boyfriend is going to feel about the age difference; this is mostly how those individual men would feel about it.
My brother has been dating a gal who is twelve years his junior for a few years now, they plan of getting married after she finishes grad school. The age thing isn't even a factor in defining their relationship, they met over a shared hobby and they get along well. The one thing I will generalize about older men is that they tend to appreciate frankness more.
Be open and honest with questions, concerns, and ideas. Yes concepts don't care how you reference them. I was being trivial but friendly. I said elsewhere he had a good post. For example, a great thinker comes into a room but his dick is hanging out the front of his pants. Might sway anyone's thoughts on him. His ideas could still be great but someone needs to connect with him.
You need to stop. Being a terrible writer hurts any job with writing. The first poster is right and his ideas are completely understood. If he skipped the space bar though it would be a different game. However, typing without capitalization is so boring. I like to spice it up, like typing with two keyboards at once one hand on each.
Maybe he's just showing us how a 24 year old would type? Let's wait for his 40 year old super duper smart guy version before we criticize m'kay? Nothing passive about it.
I was poking fun at someone who appears to be full of themselves no matter the age. Your example isn't what this girl is facing. Hers is about maturity vs age while yours was about intelligence hers vs maturity yours and you failed not because of an age difference but because you were a dick. Yes, I was a dick. It's a pretty dick thing to be in a relationship with someone you don't respect. Or maybe the content is great but we wonder how it doesn't drive you crazy not to capitalize anything.
Or we could ponder this question: Only joking, I agree with what you said. Although it's a bit ironic, it's not about the delivery, it's about the message. Some of us have much younger wives. This is a huge thing with men who want to start late families or a second wave. That depends on whether or not you take our sage advice and how you develop. Women who carry their own water and can be trusted are valued. Most 40 year old women cant do this either.
I've never heard of an "age appropriate" place in my life. A lot of us stopped hanging out in bars in our early 20s when we discovered it was just a place to fleece us of money. I can't think of a place I go that I couldn't and that someone hasn't brought their 20something SO. As far as embarrassment. That is an accomplishment and symbol of virility. The only potential social problem will arise with other women who see you as an unwanted rival.
I don't know a situation that wont cause that. My late wife was Asian So you see anything that makes you different can present a problem with the wrong kind of people. Yeah we totally hate being virile, strong men who get what we want in life.
That would totally hurt us at work. If you like it, who cares. I'm better now than I was a 25 and way better to women. If the wife was suddenly not here again FML I could see myself with a younger woman quite easily. It would make me happy and contrary to the other gentlemen here it would probably advance my social status.
Having the right woman in your life is a great thing. When I was with my ex, I was always like, "wow, I'm so good at talking to women, I would get laid all the time if I was single. Although I do agree that I am better at this than when I was 19 or My first wife died. I did go through all the dating crap again. Came out of it fine. A million times easier the second go around.
If you can't hack it you have to do some work on you. Self confidence is part of the equation. Also, this is easier if you aren't they type that panics with loneliness.
Most people have a few year age gap. That's why there's a post about it. Well, maybe if you're working in the back of a warehouse that'll be a plus. But if you're on the partner track, maybe they want to consider the lawyer who isn't going through a mid-life crisis by dating a year old.
Normal in my circle. Desperately in need of answers self. Why do I [19m] keep regretting and blaming myself for not talking to a girl [19f]?

I have always found older men attractive. And now that I'm casually dating older men ive realised many things about myself and the misconceptions of sex that I was always given as a teen. My casual lover who is 53, is one of the most caring and gentle men I have ever met. He listens and he enjoys a good mature conversation. And he is also very sensual and playful too, his mannerisms and way of speaking very erotic and interesting.
Physically fit and fairly classy, he is so good in the bedroom too, if not the best I've ever been with. It is a pleasure to send time with him eating good food and conversation, while mixing in some sensual banter and flirting. This is my experience, a I totally relate to this article. Helped with understanding why people make hurtful comments, age is no barrier as I see it, it just hard when you work in the same company and people watching all the time and dealing with his previous baggage can be difficult at times and the feeling that you are being used for his own gain.
Hmmmmm even before the age of technology, men are already seen as providers for the family. Most of successful societies today at some point had a patriarchal system and even now a lot of societies are still using this system. You cannot blame a woman who wants to ensure a good future for her children by choosing a man who is very much capable of providing for the family.
For me, men who treat women as sex objects and nothing more is worse than a woman who treat men as "vehicles for procreation and financial resources".

In my youth, I was very much attracted to older men, mainly because I felt men closer to my age bracket were quite immature. However, now at my age???
