How long have you been dating him? The reasons it didn't work out had nothing to do with our age gap. This relationship seems quite normal, to my eyes. Are you worried that he is immature and might change?
And it wasn't because of our ages that it didn't work out. But please make sure she never sees this question or knows about your concerns because it would be really hurtful and if I were her it would be amble reason to not date you or to dump you if I was. If that is the case, there shouldn't be a hangup with a relationship. Older women are awesome because we're well established, are independent, have careers, dating cool interests and do fun stuff. You need to pinpoint the problem and ask the question in such a way that it resolves any worries you might have.
It's hardly enough to make any real difference. She is likely established in home and career, dating online where he's just starting out. It doesn't seem very mature to me to come online and ask a lot of strangers what you should do. It is weird in the sense that it's not typical and it is something some people might look down on you for.
You will learn your lesson the hard way. You obviously have scant regard for them. But then I read the rest of this thread, and I changed my mind.
In that sense dating an older woman reflects well on you. The older party being a woman doesn't somehow make it wrong, that's a sexist double standard and it's bullshit. There are lots of advantages to dating a grownup. Most of the time we found out each others ages after we started dating and it just wasn't an issue for either of us. However you were not yet dating so I would say go for it and date him first.
- In all cases, it was two people being attracted to each other, not two numbers.
- Maybe you should familiarize yourself with them.
- It's never been any kind of issue.
- The second she starts to slow down in the bedroom or starts losing her looks, he'll start looking elsewhere.
- Love and attraction aren't enough, there has to be more there to sustain a long-term relationship, compatibility on all levels.
We still root for each other. Hopefully she doesn't think the same way I do. It sounds from your question and followups that you're focusing on a lot of superficial externals about how it might affect you rather than the heart of the matter - what is she looking for in you? Love doesn't see age difference as a barrier.
What says more about you is the fact that you would ask this question. Would it really make you feel better about yourself? Does age really matter in relationships? That age gap itself is fine.

Do not let people like this drag you down to their level. It just depends on the person and as long as he treats you right and you're happy. Umm, yes, anything can work, even the long shots. Best to them, they are sure gonna need it.
The age difference is just a number. But, this old lady doesn't reject short men and she doesn't think it's your shortness that is responsible for your shortness of dates. This sort of thing, as with almost any relationship, is almost entirely dependent on the people involved. If you're ashamed of her or of yourself because of her age, do her the favor of breaking things off so that she can find someone who is proud to be with her.

You like who you like, ask her out and if she says yes I hope you both have fun. She needs to be dating someone more in her maturity bracket. No one, including the two of us, gave any thought to the age difference, because it was never evident.

We weren't a good match and one of the things that stuck out to me was the difference in maturity. Posting Quick Reply - Please Wait. Why don't you ask her our first and start dating and then see if you two are compatible? It's a fine age gap for anyone. As far as I'm concerned it's fine.
Three years is nothing in the grand scheme. My wife is five years older than me. Five years doesn't rate as an age gap when you are an adult. If you want to date this woman, pursue that goal.

- You haven't even asked her out.
- Myself, and I am sure others on this thread would question his morals and values.

If you think this way already, what you are going to think when it's time for your friends to meet your girlfriend? Why do you care what other people think about your prospective relationship, or what they might think about you on the basis of who you date? Even moved in with him, and yes I objected.
Let people deal, it's not a big problem unless you make it a big problem. Just work on correcting relationship with your parents. So you decided to attack my divorced status?
Grow up and work through your issues with your parents and leave the fifty year old man out of it. Are you sure that they've failed at competing? The telling factor is whether there is a big maturity difference or not, and whether these two in a relationship are going to be compatable from the standpoint of life goals and objectives. After your first post, I was gonna say well she seems in love, and it doesn't seem to be about his money, so sure why can't it work?
Is that really who you want to believe? This must worry you for some reason, but it shouldn't. My boyfriend is pressuring me to have sex? If it becomes serious you won't care about the age difference, and if it's only a bit of fun for both of you, you might learn something about yourself and women.
You need to mature some more. Did he never like me or will he come back? Definitely something that needs to be figured out before you plant your flag on this guy. Some of us even have accepted ourselves and our bodies for what they are and are over the phase of trying to be something we're not.
