Personally i am seriously looking for an older lady 4 marriage, i am tired of my age mates who are not serious at all.

Usually, it is only the more physically attractive women who doing this power-trip, for spite against their EX, for sex, middle-life crisis, and so they should seek help or at least listen to their relatives. There are times when it feels as though I hold the parent role though. However, they are also the type who makes a good spouse and reliable partner. I wonder what is their lifespan in fil? Historically, marriages in most societies were arranged by parents and older relatives with the goal not being love but legacy and "economic stability and political alliances", according to anthropologists. I was so apprehensive to even start to date him but ten yrs later I love him and him me just as the first day..
The big one is that as she is older, she had her loved ones or soul mate and she will always love him. Now, she choose her Ex, dated him back no matter how I loved her. Mae and I spent 22 years as lovers,best friends,soulmates! Our 38 year difference in age never came into question! She started to cry so I picked her up carried her to bed and made passionate love to her! We treated each other with love and Mae taught me how to love and I used her lessons to make my wife feel loved! I have had a few truly serious relationships with younger men, and I always get hurt.
The latest one…we broke it off 2 months ago. I was very hurt. I realized I had feelings for him. When we talked about it he still wanted to see me but look for someone closer to his own age who he could potentially have kids with. I feel like I got used. So yes it hurts. Mae and I were out in public through they years before Cougar was the term. Older men hated that Mae and I were together.
Always feel early on IF he is mr. Dating older women is a blessing. I think it really for me has to be as in a necessity premise on not materialistic,but i love the fact when i am with a older woman? She is more affectionate, passionate, mature big plus for this latino. Even in high school i crush on my older teacher thirty-two and i was only sixteen or fifteen,and at 17 another teacher, so there you go lol I personally knew i would marry 1 day older, and i do not care if she is way older, i try to stay under 20 years older but will go as high as thirty years IF we connect more than just the great sex with an older woman.
I love older women. IMO they are not old yet, just Older women. I will marry an older lady, over 10 to fifteen or 20 years and i am going to be happy with just that. Both of us growing old together and as ONE happy unit.
We sure can adopt if we choose. Glad to be here. Marni I am sorry if I have taken to much space in your blog? Mae and I had a soulmate love affair! Part 6 When I turned 38 Mae was 76 our 38 years difference in age! We had a couple drinks to celebrate then I carried Mae to bed. We made love and fell asleep in each others arms! I got up dressed went home jumped in the shower my wife joined me I carried her to bed and made love to her on my birthday in the morning!
Part 5 The reason it worked for Mae and I was the 38 years between us didnt bother us and since my wife was busy with work and allowed me to be oncall for Mae it was great. Mae loved that from the first time I made love to her I would call her and thank her for a great time. I told her after the second month that I loved her and her response was I care for you very much.
Finally on our 1st anniversary of our affair my wife was away on business Mae and I went out for dinner I brought her roses and back to my house. I carried her up to bed and made love to her I told her I loved her and she finally said I love you.
Part 4 My wife gives my cell number to Mae so I can help her since I am handy fixing things. Mae and I make up a list of fix it projects to keep me coming for Mae!
My wife having to go out of town on business even suggests I go to neighborhood pool party with Mae as my date! She tells Mae that I am her date and keep a certain blonde neighbor away from me! One neighbor told my wife your husband and Mae are having a affair!
I gave her his phone number so he can help her. Mae and I went to the pool party and the neighbor that told my wife came by to talk to us! I walked Mae home and at the front door knowing she was watching we shared a long passionate kiss!
I told my wife I kissed Mae because the neighbor was watching! My wife laughed saying she will be calling me to tell on you! Part 3 I being 30 and my wife 22 made it easy for me to have Mae 68 as my mistress! My wife was thin but large chest 36dds! Mae would wake me at 3 we would make love again I would shower with Mae and get home in time to make supper! This made Mae and I getting together so much easier and my wife never dreamed that I would take a lover 38 years older when I had a wife 8 years younger!
I forgot to mention Mae was 68 I was 30 and my wife My wife would make love to me 4 or 5x a month. We worked opposite shifts giving me plenty of time to make love to Mae. My wife would go out of town for a week I would be at Maes and we would make love day and night and I finally had her come to my house and make love in my bed.
I first saw Mae I was The second time I was I knew she was older but I didnt know how old. We hit it off from the start. Her husband left her for a younger woman and I was married 3 months when I found Mae the second time.
Our affair lasted 22 years til alshiemers claimed her mind. Her sister met me at her home a couple years earlier in Maes home and said we tried fixing her up with men her age but she turned them down now I understand why. My wife knew Mae but never dreamed I was in bed with her every week. For the past 2 and a half years I have been dating a guy 14 years my junior.
He is 32 and I am I have 3 kids and he has none. We go through daily teenage tantrums and toddler activities and needs. He has a very good heart and extremely affectionate and loves the kids. I never experienced such goodness in previous relationships.
The battles I face though as an older woman is firstly he is unemployed and cannot maintain a job. His sexual drive is extremely low. Also my kids get irritated because if they ask me a question then he would respond. I know he is just trying to be part of the family and respect him for that. How do I maintain the balance as I would not one to loose him. He even love me more than I do. Sometimes I imagined that if all those men that ever per sued me lined up I still choose him over them though he may not stable financially yet but he is working on it now.
We know what we are thinking, we supports, encourage or motivate each other. I really appreciate it when he shares his problems, fear, doubt, accomplishments in school or job even when he being happy. Make it easy for me to communicate with him and he respects my space as well. He seems to be more matured than his age and always think in advanced. Then I found out that he actually become serious with me which I never thought it all and now he planning to come for visit again.
I had ask few closed friends of mine just to know their opinions mostly they are very supportive and told me not to break his heart except some of them disagreed coz of age. I never ask him about his family reactions but he going to introduce me to one of his family members. And one of my friends said it does not mean that if you choose someone with the same age like yours can guaranteed you a happy marriage.
All depends on you and your partner to determine which course or journey you going to embark as long you guys happy. I think the key of everything is communication and how mature the man is. Everybody deserve to be happy…. Age is just a number after all…. We have been together for nearly 2 years and have a baby girl together.
She also has 3 sons. I love her more than I thought I could ever love someone. I see how good of a mother she is to our children and it makes me love her all the more. She is the kindest most loving person I have ever met and I have been all over this nation and never met anyone like her. We plan to marry in June and I do not take such a commitment lightly. I intend to be there for her until death do us part. I would put my life in her hands and she would do the same for me. We have a love that is the envy of all her friends, not because of my physical appearance, but because of how well I treat her and how happy we are together.
If there is a huge age gap, I could see there being some kind of issue in the long term but for the most part, age does not matter. Maturity, common goals, and dedication are deciding factors with age gapped relationships. Im 53 iv been with older women for since my early 20s slept with them the sex is great witj these women. I know 3 older women now im griends with but i know a lady that im interested on who is a year younger these other women are divorced but tjey are great freinds any advice on what i should do?
I am always aware that in our culture, men are able to date much younger with little blowback while women are looked at as some misdirected cradle robber …….. My ex and I were married for almost 20 years and together for most of 28 years He was 10 years younger … met him when he was 27 married him when he was 36 and I was Age was not a factor in our divorce Due to a health issue when I was 31, he was aware I was unable to have children which happens to many women during their child bearing years for one reason or another.
It also was not a factor in our divorce. My father died 22 years ago and my mother is still living and relatively healthy at age Men marry women much much younger all the time and no one blinks an eye.
There is no rule that women cannot do the same and it makes so much more sense for a woman to be older. Many people are fine being childless. As long as the person is an adult and not developmentally delayed in some way and is not capable of making a thought out decision regarding who they will marry..
Again, as I said previously, men marry young women all the time with little flack. While I personally just think people… both men and women…. No matter how old their partner is at the time. What is important is they are mature enough to understand the seriousness of partnering legally and understanding their own needs in a partner. I was just curious on what people had to say on dating younger men.
I am 45 and was in a relationship with a 32 yr. I had dismissed any kind of relationship in my head as I just assumed we would want different things. I already have a ten year old son from my previous marriage. It would take a very special person for me to let into my son and my my life. Of course there are all forms of human depravity but realistically any man in his 20s or 30s going out with a 50 year old is a loser looking for his mommy. Since dating my cougar there are 3 things she loves to do to me.
One is making me work. Two at times loves to seduce me. Also the cuddle time is always fun while she teases me. She also knows when I am about ready to sleep. This woman has been married 5 times and most of them seem to be, at least partially,career decisions. Directors, producers and collaborators who she got work with.
Maybe Alla Pugacheva does. A 30 year old and a 50 year old can still have a lot in common and be physically compatible. Most of us start to look older and feel older.
For most men the physical attraction will wane. He may start to think he made a mistake years earlier and then both of you will get hurt.
Money makes a difference. It is all about maturity. These men should be thinking about their future such as being in a committed relationship and having family and yet, Cougars take advantage of them which is nothing but egotistical narcissistic selfishness. Usually, it is only the more physically attractive women who doing this power-trip, for spite against their EX, for sex, middle-life crisis, and so they should seek help or at least listen to their relatives.
A dead end road. Recently I met a 51 year old woman. She is 10 years older than me. We are physically and emotionally attracted to each other. I chased her and she eventually cougar seduced me. She also met my friend who is 37 but she is not emotionally attracted to him. On our 1st date recently she told me that she was 51 and I was in complete shock. She to me looks years old. The only deal breaker for me is someday I want to have a child to continue the family name.
Her reply was not one I liked but everything else I like about her. For now I will put that aside but if I meet a younger women who can have kids then I might have to move on from my sexy cougar. The article DID leave 1important thing out however. I am 45and have 3children. He however had NOT been married nor has children and would like them.
Thus, it happens not just to me but to others as well. This must be love. Been with my younger man over 8 years and married for 7. I am 18 years older and yes it is certainly working for us.
I am 47 and met a guy 20 years my junior last year. Started out as friends cos we shared the same interests. Never expected of me to meet and fall for a guy with a wide age gap but was surprised when he reciprocated. Meanwhile i will just go with the flow and enjoy the process of being in love again. He cares for me a real gentleman I get shocked and surprised. He amazed me all the time.
Is it too good to be true? He never asked me for anything in months both make our own money. Its like all we want is eachothers time. We say we LOVE eachother. Is it to soon? I am living with a friend I met on the internet, he is 47 and I am He has told me he only wants a friendship but I would like more. I am not sure really if he finds me unattractive or just not sexually alluring but we do get on so well.
I have been living with him for the last 7 months on and off as I am also a part time carer for my mum and cannot be there during the week. He said he finds women want to control him in relationships and he is happy as he is just having friendships rather than relationships but the funny thing is we live like husband and wife without the sex.
We cook for each other and could easily get mistaken for husband and wife. We sat up a few weeks back until 5am talking about things that had happened to him in his life and he told me some pretty awful things that had happened to him as a child.
I wanted to kiss and hug him but I feel frightened of scaring him if I start touching him too much let alone trying to kiss him.
I sometimes feel that he really would like things to go further between us but denies it if we talk. I would not swap him for anyone else, I just wish I could have met him when I was a little younger. This article is utter nonsense. When it comes time for family or really amazing lovemaking, young guys such as myself, always run back to the year olds, except of course for the beta males.
I love her very much, we talk about everything. I am so much in love with older women, not for money but i find them sexy. To Alison Jones I am 50…He is Been together 2 yrs. Something I had never believed in until him.
I adore him, he adores me. He saved me, I saved him. At first I was a little shy in public. But hey…people hate on other people no matter what. And one of the best things about being 50 is the ability to not care about what others think or say. Laying in the arms of the man who loves me. Nothing compares to being loved and loving someone.
I love being in love with him. He is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Neither of them will ever be able of accepting him. Ive been divorced 14 yrs. The other two were my age. My oldest son hated them as well. They both have violently attacked him. I fear for his life, I fear for my sons. I have decided that the answer lies within each of my sons. It is not my obligation to provide an answer to them. It would never occur to me to ask either of them for an explanation as to why they love who they have chosen to love.
I am happy that they love and are loved. I have made all parental sacrifices, done the best of my ability to be half the mother to them as my mother was to me.
I love them both. I want to be a factor in their lives. It is what it is. My heart aches for them. I fear I will die before they will accept who I love. Leaving them with a burden of guilt. I know they know how much I love them. I had such a nice time and he is so laid back and cool, but I find myself now wanting it to just go away.
I am probably better at taking care of my health than he is and more physically active. But he is so darn cute and sweet with no stupid attitude. I really appreciated this. But it was nice for a short weekend. Our problems start with her grown kids. One son threatened my life street-thug and stole a tv from me I placed in his mothers bedroom. Another child of hers recently broke into her bedroom again and stole a weapon of mine, made up a elaborate story, causing confusion among their family members.
Those issues along with constant accusations, lies, brats have contributed to us growing apart. Personally i am seriously looking for an older lady 4 marriage, i am tired of my age mates who are not serious at all.
I pray that my dream comes true before end of this year. I think your advice is for insecure guys who just want a female they can control. Most men who are confident in themselves would go for any woman they love regardless of age.
But sadly it is true that younger women are totally clueless and ignorant about the real principles of life and that is why they are more controllable by macho men.
Aww, that is so sweet.. Just ask her out! I am a young black man age 27 and i am willing to marry a woman only if we understand each other so i am open to date any age. I am a young black man age 27 good looking,loving,caring and respectful and love to be social some time. At the beginning its fun. In the middle younger will try to coup up and compromise at last nothing left behind.
Never ever do that mistake and as far as dating is concerned its good otherwise guys you will ruin your life never marry an older woman. We have a lot in common and are the best of friends, and love each other deeply. At age 43 I got pregnant by accident and lost the baby. I feel bad about that and wish I could give him a child.
We are getting married in 5 months and our families are really happy for us. I take good care of myself. Wow, I thought I was alone in the world. A few months ago, I invited him to hang out with me and my 25 year old niece. My niece went to bed and he and I wound up talking until 2 in the morning. A few weeks later, he and I went to a bar with my 25 year old niece and her 43 year old boyfriend.
That was rather confusing for our waiter! Now, my 27 year old friend and I go out frequently. We love the same things — amusement and water parks, zip lines, scary movies and Mexican food. When I read about you and your partner I felt a bit of a relief.
Goodluck to you both , I hope it works out. My girlfriend and I been together for over 6 years. Physical, emotional, and intellectuality a perfect fit. However, family plays a very negative role in our relationship. We also know public perception would not been kind. Her career tanked and physical health caused her outlook to change to acceptance. Only way we overcome is our bond and understanding each other.
Physical connection does that. Yes, our sex is amazing. This article gives me some encouragement. About 7 years I met someone at work casually until one day she invited a few co-workers to her house for a get-together. I was the only one that could make it. We talked a lot I mostly listened. She was 47 at the time and I was She told me all about her life. How her husband who made k a year of 20 years cheated on her many times, her daughter has severe mental illness and other things.
At this time I thought we were just two people talking. Until some of her stories got emotional and she began to break down and cry little. Then she took me into her bedroom. I had no idea she wanted to sleep with me. A couple weeks later she asked if I wanted hang out with her and I did. The same thing happened. After the first time I really liked her, then after the third or fourth time, I started to have feelings for.
She was perfect and very attractive to me. I never told her my feelings about her and she always initiated everything and we really went out one time. But about a month later she said that the age gap was a problem because of what other people might say or think. Then she said was worried that I might leave her later on for someone else and she would feel bad for staying with when she gets very old or sick.
She told me that she told her aunt about us and she was happy for her. She asked me to be friends with her, but I thought she just wanted to sleep with someone else. She even told me that I was the best lover she ever had. All this talk about our relationship was done by e-mail. I tried dating a few girls my age, but no one clicked.
I know I will never find anyone remotely likely again. Maybe I am trying for a second chance. Hi there — I am reading all of these comments from people — I am finding it interesting. I am a 53 year woman interested in a 38 year old man I have known for over 6 years. He met me when I was at my worst — I was recovering from a neck fusion that had gone badly.
He was in an unhappy marriage. He is Indian and gorgeous, smart, fun, etc. I have been attracted and liked him this whole time — he was married when I met him but very unhappy but he stayed true to his ex-wife. I always thought there was an attraction between us. Now we are back in touch and things with our friendship are great — we also have some romance going too.
We have not slept together — maybe because of his culture, he recently lost his job — that is a big deal with him — he is looking — plus he took over everything financially following his divorce. He is very stressed. I am giving him space. Everytime we see each other we get physical. He is more mature than any guy my age or older that I have ever been involved with. I am hoping it turns into a real romance. He once told me he likes older women.
You would never know I am People think I am in my mid to late 30s at the most. I take care of myself even following 2 neck fusions.
He is not using me clearly for sex as we have not gone there yet — I am hoping we do, but I want it to mean that he is ready to move forward. I think what maybe holding him back is his situation following his divorce.
I have a 14 year old son through invitro — I was engaged once — never married. He was married once as I said for 10 years got married at Divorced almost 2 years. He has a 9 year old daughter. I do not think he wants more children since we have 2 between us. My attitude is I am just going to watch and wait — see what happens — he needs space right now — no pressure — but I will be honest I hope he comes around and soon. I am supportive — he has been supportive of me — he is very spiritual and philosophical.
He used to text me these wonderful philosophical quotes but that was before he lost his job and became so stressed. I have a lot of stress to but I think we could really help each other out. I think we would be great together. I do not think it is the cultural things as his first wife was white as I am.
I sure do not care what race he is. I just want it to move somewhere — I see myself with him. Knowing him prior to our first romantic experience and then to see him freak out was a surprise and I thought he reacted badly. Then the time went by and we got in touch.
I did not know if anything would happen but it has each time we have been together — he must be attracted to me — I think he always has been but again he stayed true to his unhappy marriage — I respect him for that plus I would never get involved with a married man no matter how unhappy he is.
I met his wife — I have been to parties at their house when they were together — all in friendship. Now here we are. Hello pat please help me. Well im 27 and i been talking to a 47 lady she is very nice we met at work and she is a nurse never thought someone with a high profession would be interested in me btw she asked for my number and told me that i was good looking and friendly and told me on the spot if there was a way we could hand out and get to know each other.
Well everything is great untill i saw her daughter and i kinda got attracted she looks just like her and she shows up at her job and stares at me alot i dont know if they been talking or if she is physically attracted to me Well she wants to go bowling and she is bringing her daughter she invited me and it looked like it was going to be a weird night i have no idea what to do from this point foward any ideas would help thanks pat.
I have been dating a man 18 years younger. I feel like I love him, but worry for the future, although he has never wanted kids and his mother has also stated this. He has some emotional issues as do I which has helped us to bond. Just may need a face lift in the future. We just made our relationship official on Facebook last weekend. He visited me and it was wonderful! He lives in a different state and has to drive over 30 hours to see me. I find him adorable and am head over heels for him.
He also has a reputation of being a ladies man and sending pics of his junk to all the pretty ladies on FB. I am 41 years old married to a 29 year old.
I really wish I would have held off on marriage. This is my second marriage and he is a great guy;however, very unstable. I find myself less attracted to him as the days go by to a point that I do not want him touching me. I try not to hurt his feelings but if this marriage is going to work, I have to be totally honest with him. I can not pretend like I am happy.
