  • Sure, why not? It's just a date.
  • Probably not.
  • well that depends upon the person. many people couldnt possibly contemplate going out with someone so much older as they might feel like it was a date with a parent. yet others wouldnt see any problem with this as they like the security of an older partner. then again, society puts boundries on this situation. it is viewed by many to be socially acceptable for a younger woman to date an older man, yet an older woman with a younger man can often be frowned upon. when these age difference relationships deepen and the couple talk of marriage, then family members/friends might advise the younger partner against it, because the older partner may experience fertility problems or poor health. truth is this could happen at any age; but thats getting ahead of the game. it is only a date we are talking about, no one is proposing marriage here. my advise? we are all different so do whatever feels right and dont worry about anyone else says. there is no one more qualified to be you than you.
  • If I was interested in them, yeah.
  • If I were single, had a lot in common with this person, and enjoyed their company...sure I would.
  • If I knew them and was interested, yes. If I had no prior experience with the person and they were completely unknown to me, then definitely no.
  • It really depends on the guy. I'm open minded, but they have to fit my "vibe". If I get any creepy guy vibes at all, I wouldn't do it. But if I found one who I really felt was genuine, sure- maybe. Never say never.
  • Not unless I'm getting something other than the "pleasure of his company."
  • Men over 60 are the only ones that show any interest in me. I am married so the answer is always no.
  • Sure Ill do it. Just one date.
  • If I was about 20 tears younger and she was ...let's say Liz Phair, Elizabeth Hurley, etc...you get the picture...sure
  • honestly, in this situation it would depend on how he looks. i like to date guys around my age, so if he doesn't have that going for him, he needs to make up for it in other areas.
  • I dated somebody who was 12 years older than me. I think that's about as far as I'd go... I'm not totally sure though.
  • No. That would be kind of gross.
  • only if it's my hot sensei :D
  • No i wouldn't the guy would be 38 too old for me to feel attracted to him.
  • I'm 40 seeing a man 20 years older than I am. It is by far the most amazing experience of my life. He's smart, romantic, cares about how I'm feeling - I always feel amazing after being with him. I don't know what will or won't happen in the long term, but for the here and now, for the today, I cherish every minute we spend together. And yes, he's good looking...
  • NO. Why would a person want to date someone 20 yrs younger? Think about it. What do you have in common? What future is there? Why is he or she not interested in dating someone their own age. And lastly, if they tell you how mature you are for your age-- go tell a friend or relative about it!!
  • Absolutely. I tend to prefer guys 15-25 years older than me (29). But my friends and co-workers are older, too, so I guess it makes sense.
  • I think my upper limit would be around late forties. Not that I don't find some people older than that attractive - it's just getting a bit too close to my parents' age which would feel awkward. But someone in their early forties, yeh definetly if I liked them enough.
  • I think 20 years is a large gap and unless they are unbelieveble immature then I think you would miss out on alot of things that they have already experienced (i.e. having children). They also are at a different stage in their life and probably want very different things than you. I would say a good 10 years is enough, I have always dated a guy at least a year older most I ever went was 5. I find it a little creppy to have guys who are my moms age hitting on me but it happens and I just let them know I'm not up for grabs :-)
  • Well, from my perspective its okay to do. I'm 38, and I normally date women in their early to mid 20's. The problem I have is that most women my age are married, or divorced and have kids. I don't think I can handle raising someone else's kids, so my "same-age" dating pool is very, very small.
  • Oh yes, I've always preferred older men!
  • If she was hot why not
  • It would completely depend on the people. Until a few months ago, I would have said no - but I'm meeting several people that are 20+ years older than me that have as much energy as I do, if not more, and we have a lot in common.
  • nope never
  • Age has no bearing as long as there is a mutual attraction and she doesn't have a colonostomy bag.
  • Do you realize how much they may have learned in the bedroom with those 20 years?
  • sorry, but not even if i was 18, that's too much of an age difference
  • It depends. If I know them and feel comfortable with them then sure I see no problem. If they were practically a stranger to me I would get to knoe them a little better forst and if our personalities clicked I would see no reason to not go.
  • If she was hot, heck yeah I would. Look at Catherine Zeta Jones. I would do her in an instant.
  • Everyone here has their opinions and I really want all of you to know I respect that. I am seeing a man who happens to be 21 and a few months older than I am and we get along wonderfully! I am almost 39 and he is 60. Yes he is quite a bit older but we enjoy that aspect of the relationship too...peoples reactions sometimes humor us, but oh well. we have both been told by different friends that we are kidding ourselves and that there isn't much going on for us other than the, well, you know ....LOL! There is more to it because we have been together for many years now and stayed together through all that is good and just a little of the "bad". Not all "May/December" relationships work.....although not all age appropriate relationships work either. So, it's whatever you are comfortable with. Just my opinion. I'll let the future be the future and appreciate the "here and now" for the time being..:) Hugs to all!
  • she did, and iwent and loved everyheartbeat of it...*learned some new things too.. what is nunyabidness*
  • I'm a fifty-eight year old male and I perodically "walk" women twenty years older than I to occasions where they need company, but that's the end of it. I routinely "date" women 20-30 years younger than I.
  • No, 20 years is to much for me I wouldnt want them to die way before me....
  • Nothing wrong with an experienced woman... :)
  • good for her-where in germany? i was born there.
  • No. I was asked prior to marriage by a very handsome man who was 20+ yrs my senior. Just not my style. Fabulous man, just not the type I could date.
  • 20 years younger, yes. 20 years older, never. I'm too old.
  • My first relationship was with someone who was 20 years older than me and it lasted 3 years. Age doesn't define a person.
  • I do not see why not. I prefer older men that is for sure. Never have I been with someone that much older but I can only imagine they will have all sorts of things to teach me and I love that. I am sure I could show them a thing or to as well....
  • I've gone as far as 19 years and 7 months... it was fun, but a lot of times it just felt like we were at different places in our lives. I guess you just have to assess how much that is going to affect you.
  • NO , all that talk that age ain't nothing but numbers is gross , we are from a diferent generation so will have nothing in common , to say the least !
  • When I was 28 I met a woman at a company party who was a very attractive 51 years old. We spent a weekend together and had a great time. I saw her occasionally after that but she seemed very embarrassed by the whole thing and it never happened again. being 23 years older than me she would be old enough to be my Mom and also 70 now! Our little fling was 19 years ago.
  • If it was Sean Connery, maybe...ha! 68 is a bit old for me...
  • Wisdom and gentleness almost always comes with age. They know how to be a kid, and the right time to be a kid. Little things bother them less and they are much more experienced in what a partner wants in sex. You have to drive hard to make them mad, and what I've seen so far, they can bring you up quicker from your falls. I would not date a girl twenty years younger than me because I know how childish and reckless we were then, and I most certainly would not want to experience it again from her.
  • If I like her, then yes I would!
  • I am 19 years old, and dating a 40 year old. My family doesn't like it, but what can I do? I love him, and he loves and respects me, and I know for sure that he is not just using me (ironically, he jokes that I am just using him - ha!). It's hard going out in public, as everyone jokes, I look like I'm with my dad. I have known him for almost 3 years before I started dating him, and we have always been close friends. It just seemeed right. We have been together for 6 months, and I am the happiest I've ever been. I truly believe that age shouldn't matter in any relationship. If you love someone and they truly love you in return, that should be most important, no matter what.
  • yeah sure, why not. It will be a new experience and who knows that person may be the person you are looking for. I think it would be a bit better as well. They will have more experience in the field of dating and relationships in general. I am also open minded and try to give everyone a chance, cuz the search for love should not have a lot of boundaries.
  • That would be so cool having a 58 year old asking me on a date. She must have saw something in me the other women didn't see in me.:-)
  • It depends. I have gone on a date with someone 24 years older than me, she was 45 and I was 21. We had a lot in common and enjoyed each others company. Obviously this wasn't going to last because of the age difference but we had fun while it did.
  • That would mean me dating someone who was 51 years old. Umm..no. My dad is 52. Not gonna happen.
  • If I were 18, no. If I were 28, yes. Twenty years can be too big a gap if it's the wrong 20 years.
  • Hmmm... possibly, but I would be incredibly cautious... But I'd rather try to stay with my age group, 8 years is the maximum age difference I've ever been with. He was 25, I was 17... Dad didn't approve, so it didn't work out... Sorry, all available guys... I'm taken, but I couldn't resist answering this question! ^_^
  • If I were single at the time? Yes I would
  • Well, I'm turning 18 soon and if a 38-year-old man asked me out, I would probably say no.
  • Nope ...I wouldn't :-)
  • i find this question pertinent. i'm soon to be 45 and she's 26. an amazing woman! i worry about the age fm time to time, but she doesn't. we're happy and have a good life together. the family? another entry for another time.
  • If I weren't married, then absolutely. I feel age is only a number. Its all about the connection that you have with another person, regardless of age. To hell with what other people think. 2 consenting adults, I see no problem with age......Anyway, its only a date, it's not like you're getting married.
  • It might not really matter if the chemistry is there. After all being on date is not a marriage celemony.
  • Yes I would and I have. I dated a man who was 27 years older than me. I think age is just a number it's not something that anyone can control so you should not worry about it.
  • Depends if I liked him. I wouldn't go now, I'm in a commited relationship and I'm in love with the man I'm with. Age is just a number, once you're 18+ y/o that is.
  • yes. if he/she is hot and has nice personality. I've never dated anyone in my life but that's not the reason.
  • Possibly, as long as the following conditions were met: 1. you are not a juvenile 2. the other person is not already married 3. the other peson does not have any diseases 4. the other person is not a criminal 5. you are not married 6. you are not dating this person out of desperation You ask yourself. "how in the heck am i expected to know this much background on a person 20 years my senior?". Its not easy, but at least attempt to learn as much as possible. Twenty years difference is an unbelievable generation gap. i hope you two have many things in common and thebove conditions are met.
  • I'm 38 and maybe not, but I would consider 20 years younger.
  • If I were single and Rachel Welsh was "The 24 years older than me Someone", You betcha !! That woman is still gorgeous !!!
  • If I was single, yes! I find older men very attractive.
  • No, my boyfriend would not approve. :-)
  • No. I would rather date someone either my age or a little older than me, no more than five years, because I want someone that's in the same place in their life as I am, who can relate to what I'm going through and learn with me through it.
  • sure, if i liked him. one of my professors is right about that age, and i'd TOTALLY go on a date with him, haha.
  • it is not rigth for a man or a woman to date a person older than him/her in 20years, because in a few years time the oldest person will not beable to perform his or her function. From EBO
  • I might..once you reach your middle'ish years --say 30-70...you can have much in common...the age difference isn't always as apparent as say an 18 year old and a 30 year old...a 45 year old and a 60 year old can probably draw on similar life experiences....But anything is possible and I'm pretty open about relationships...so whatever makes you happy...happiness is what it is all about.
  • I'm 20 y.o & date a 40 years old guy, we both have the same interstates and we love each other. We've met on MySpace, he had a 30 y.o gf when I first met him, and he left her for me, he sold his house and moved to a new apartment so we could live & be together. However, I'm not sure about this guy, I do believe he wants me because I'm young. It turns him on, for sure. I wouldn't recommend to have this kind of relationship, Unless you're screwed up, like me. I love old people I guess.
  • This is a fairly simple question for me. I would not go on a date with anyone who I wasn't at least familiar with. It doesn't matter if they're 20 or 50, if I don't know you at least partially, I won't be dating you. However, I find no harm in a date with an older person. If anything, it's a learning experience. So what, if you don't find the significant other of your dreams? It may be a great opportunity to learn about another person! People can think what they may about going on a date with someone significantly older than you are, but where's the harm? If anything, it gives the two people an opportunity to have some fun and get to know each other. No one's saying you have to marry this person, and if you're worried about what may happen, meet at a public place. In all honesty, I see no harm in dating someone who considerably older than you. It's something new, you never know. You may like it. But if you have to ask yourself if it's really acceptable to be seen with someone so much older than you...You might want to consider if you are emotionally and mentally cut-out for a possible relationship with someone of such an older age.
  • Older lady? Hell yeah!
  • Not only did I go, I married him. Happily for 9 years. We have a 8 year old and all living happily ever after or at least for now. (24+.)
  • Why are people in our country so judgemental? If two people are happy together, why should an age difference matter. If it doesn't to them, then what business is it to anyone else? I'm 52, and my wife is 21. We have a beautiful 2 year old daughter. We keep each other happy in every way. We both made the choice to be together after considering all the looks and comments we would get. Frankly, I wish every couple were are happy together as we are. I only wish I was younger so I could spend more time with her.
  • No. I'm not going to date someone old enough to be my father!
  • If you feel a connection and you can intuitively assume they're not going to axe murder you on sight, then yes I would do it. But, I'd make sure to do a webcam with this person first (if meeting them online) and meet in a public place. If you already know the person, still meet in a semi-public place until you get to know eachother better and find out if it's going anywhere. I am 22 and have dated men in their 40s when I was a bit younger, so yes, it's OK, but you just have to be careful and keep your bearings about you. Don't let yourself get taken advantage of and remember your priorities may be different. At 40+ he may be looking for someone to be with for the long haul and you may not be. Just watch out for baggage. If you are up front about what you want it can work.
  • I have. Older men are often better lovers and know how to treat women.
  • HONEST ANSWER 'Eww No thats gross'
  • no..never
  • i gues it depends... me i kinda liek older guys. .but as i mature.. the age seems to shrink.... i once dated this guy who told me he was 28 ... and he was HOT as hot can be i mean... id day dream about him even when he was near.... i say his drivers license and he lied... at tat time i was barely 18.. and he was 52.. i was so choked.. i mean wow 28 and 52 is a big age gap.. and he still tried to play i off like oh the DMV made a mistake on it... YEA RIGHT.. kicked his lying rear to the curb and moved on.. and almost the same thing happened, this guy told me he was 27 and he was 32.... i must seriously be blind or something.. i need to start carding men i meet.
  • nope. i only date guys maybe 2 or so years older than me...anything older than that and i just say no
  • HELL NO!!! I want a guy my age or younger. Why would you date an old gezzer when you could have a young strong backed hottie?
  • Yes, My boyfriend is 19 years older. I'm 48 and he's 67. Our relationship is wonderful. I would date a guy older than him. Older men really know how to treat a lady.
  • older men asking a girl (especially 18 or in their early 20's) more than half of their age are perverts.
  • My husband is 17 years my senior, so yes. I would not have a problem with this. Relationships are more than ages.
  • of course.and im even 16!! I dont care if hes even 28..were just going on a date not to the nearest hotel to have sex.but i will only date those who are respectful,and doesnt want you just for sex,someone who is a professional,and smart enough to talk with.
  • I believe once you get to a certain age the age difference shouldn't matter if you are in love and have a strong bond with eachother. I am 23 and dating a 41 year old/
  • Love isnt about numbers. Give anything a chance. Love can find you in the strangest places.
  • Im actually dating a man that is 24yrs older than me, i love him and he loves me back, i think this is one of the most wonderful experiences that i've been through...we understand eachother we give advices to each other bout problems, what i love about our relationship is that we both have great communication and we understand eachother and help each other out..and of course we both love each other like it was the first couple of months of dating...i think our love is growing stronger every passing month...i dont think what i found with this man i wouldnt find on someone my age...
  • if it was hugh hefner! =)
  • in a heartbeat as long as my wife can come along
  • Sure, I would go. I dated someone who was 24 years older than me when I was in my early twentys.
  • Yes if i was attracted to him, definitely.
  • honestly probably not.. it might be romantic and he may be charming in the beginning.. but truthfully, there'd be way too many differences when it came to certain things.. simply because when he was my age, things were done a different way.. && i know all of that would come out sooner or later.. i might give it a shot and go on a date with him.. but idk if anything would come out of it, as far as a serious relationship
