ANSWERS: 56
  • She is looking for a father figure.
  • i doubt that would ever happen. She maybe after his money and he may be looking to use her for sex. So, its really just an arrangement, not love.
  • She's over 18 and can make her own decisions, he's over 18 and can make his own decisions. It's their lives.
  • is he her father's friend?! thats a little too much for me.
  • What does she feel that she can get from him and vice versa. I wouldn't think that a relationship would be able to sustain itself and will eventually run it's course.
  • Any halfway decent swordsman can make a woman 1/2 his age. To get to 1/3 he must have someone on his side.
  • erm its hard to say.....i'm 20 nd my bf is 40.we've been together over 2yrs now nd i wouldnt change it. we did have trouble in the begining cuz of the age diff but ithen ts not 36yrs! we found it tough. your both adults so its up to you what you do.
  • The first three posters all could be right. Love? It's possible but my first impression would be it's more like a, "Hello Daddy" sort of thing.
  • How lucky for him.
  • I can imagine what Freud would say about this, but if she is of legal age she can hook up with whomever she wants. If either one of them later finds out it was a mistake - well, welcome to the club of people who sometimes make bad choices in relationships!
  • Kinda gross, she must have other issues from how she was raised.
  • If it's just a fantasy, there's no harm in that. Older men are more mature than many 18 year old males. Maybe she'd like to have rewarding conversations with someone who won't make d1ck and fart jokes all the time. Older men also have a stronger sense of direction in their lives, so it's no wonder that younger women find them more appealing than a lot of their agemates. With that said, I think the age difference is pretty great in this situation. The two people will be at different life stages, so their goals may conflict. I think that if the 18 year old wants to date an older man, she should wait until she's out of college and at a more stable place in her life, and maybe pick someone who's about 5-10 years older. Then she can still have a mature partner, but not one who's so old that she'll be changing his diapers before she can drink legally.
  • Hmm.. Thats kinda werid but hey things happen
  • My view is how can I get that smile like the 54 yr old man is wearing?
  • It's absurd, for he is not once, not twice, but thrice her age. It takes all sorts. +3
  • eeeewwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • creepy. I am 30 and going to start college. dating 18-22 will be wierd but I gotta date who is single... likewise if 2 people like eachother wether or not I find it creepy is of no concern. everyone gets different things out of a relationship and so long as both parties are honest with eachother it's all good.
  • 3 X the age of a girl your dating = Nasty. Any girl that knows their in love with a man no matter what the age = Good. It wouldnt be considered adultery so its good ^_^
  • She obviously hasn't seen all the attractive young men out there for her... but then again it's her choice.
  • pedophilish
  • hello, grand daddy
  • Money talks and ______________________
  • Good for her. I hope they're happy. I'm 20 years older than my lady Meghan. +4 tbilgin
  • Who knows unless I know them?
  • Creepy.
  • theres hope for my future yet! lol:)+5
  • i bet hes a happy guy, but mabye very tired lol.
  • Twisted!
  • I am a 51 year old man and I feel that as much as the thought of being with such a young girl is exciting there would be very little they could have in common . Thirty six years is a huge gap and the young lady should take a step back and look into dating someone closer to her in age. Older guys can be tempting cause they are experienced and can also be in a stable finacial way. That being said the sex drive would be two levels and the maturirty level worlds apart. ( maybe a daddy issue ..... talk to a professional about this)
  • I KNEW A LADY WHO WAS 22 AND THE MAN SHE MARRIED WAS 56 AND THEY ARE VERY HAPPY,and no it is not me ,and sometime love can work in mysterious ways ,and maybe this will work,but what ever happens i say let them be
  • It isn't my business.
  • Well, I would like to have one! LOL! There is nothing wrong with a young girl in love with an older man, in my opinion! A very few older men are wiser than younger man! I would say go for it! :)
  • Well...it sounds totally spooky...especially for the 54yr old man to even be so ridiculous in thinking he can maintain a relationship with such a young girl...she will eventually grow up...and he will only grow old...as long as he is genuinly caring and not just a sleeze bag then maybe it's ok...
  • The girl has "daddy issues". The man has problems with women.
  • That's juat a TAD more of an age difference than most people would feel comfortable with. Beyond about 20 years of age difference, the liklihood of any relationship having serious age-related problems is very high.
  • ewwwww
  • It happens all the time. However, she will have to think about the future possibly. It's when she is 35 and he is 71 that the problems start for real or maybe even a little earlier.
  • Take up adoption instead.
  • What does she love about him? His security, his protective nature? His Money? Does he look like her daddy? Or is it more than that? Do they connect on some level they don't understand but can't deny? Even if their love conquers all -- they're in for a hard road, IMHO. And the worst thing? By the time she reaches HER sexual prime, he'll be what...76 years old. Yikes! Honey -- there are some amazing hotties in their 30's too. Stay closer to home. Best to you!
  • Good for him. Must be the money.
  • The #1 reason a girl gets with an older man is for financial security because the man has already made alot for himself (probaly a house, car, decent money). And/or they are after a father figure because they didn't have much of one. The reason an older man gets with a girl is easy; because it is a fantasy thing for an older man to be with a young girl and it is a "show off" sort of thing. Personally, I feel good for the man like "way to go," yet feel sorry for the girl because she is going to be be miserable when she's in her sexual prime and he can't fulfill her but I guess that's her consequence for being a gold digger.
  • Depending on the girl and the man I think it might be just the ticket. Lets face it, at 54 some men start the backwards slide. Their mid life crisis begins and they start desperately trying to reclaim their lost youth. The red corvettes, the leather jackets, the hair plugs and the child like love only a teenager can provide. Not many women make it to their 50's still clingy, needy and eager to please. Most women outgrow that. They also outgrow the idea that having a man is somehow a nod to their sexual poweress, a badge of honor. A teenage girl is still very impressed with herself if she has a man. It's a win win situation for those of this ilk.
  • Every situation is different but, even with that in mind, I have read that a person's decision-making abilities are not fully developed until we are 25 years of age. Emotions at that age are very strong, but are immature and can burn out in a short period of time. Speaking from personal experience (in my case, there was a nineteen year age-gap), it is not a situation that can end up positively most of the time.
  • They're both f*cked up.
  • I think the age difference is quite large, but they are both adults. Many 54yos are still quite vital, and many 18yos are quite mature. It's more up to them than anyone else.
  • That man has PHAT cash
  • That she is out of her mind and hopefully the guy would plain and simply leave her alone. When it comes to age differences in relationships, I have always said that if one person is twice the other person's age or more, then that is way too old in my opinion.
  • It's not "love"
  • It takes two very special people to make it work.
  • It didn't work out. I was the 54 year old guy.
  • I think age doesnt matter cause if you love someone you love them for them not how old they are. Trust me i would know :)
  • Gold digger anyone?
  • In most cases, it's a problem. Especially if the man is married. Won't she want to have children someday? How would the man be able help her raise her children? He'll be retiring soon. And wouldn't their lives be just completely out of sync with each other's? But there are exceptions. There are some young women who just can't relate to men their own age. I suppose it can work if all the other factors are good: the man has enough money to support her and her children for decades, he's not married, she's particularly mature, he's very youthful for his age, they have common interest and views, etc. But a 36 year age difference?
  • hey; if she is 18 and feels that she loves him ; and vice versa ... why not ? It is actually NO ONEs business who she loves, once she is an adult of 18 .... However; Just in case it does not work out; her family and friends should be there to support her and comfort her ... and NO : "I Told You so's ..." +5
