Intolerant?

Nobody told A* and I, but we figured that last night must have been "Bring your daughter to a romantic dinner" night. Given, the old-as-dirt dude dating a hot (and much younger) piece-of-ass is very South Florida but they were out in droves last night.

I took the lovely A* to a nice restaurant last night so we could be all kissy-face while looking over the intercoastal and wolfing down some fresh seafood. Dinner was great but we were the minority in the place.

I am 6 years A*'s senior. We love our age difference and I've always believed women mature ahead of men. So 6 is cool... how about 10, 15, 25? When does it get creepy? Is it really creepy and can you fall in love with someone your daughter's age or your Dad's age? Was I being a bigot with my disdain? Was my reaction intolerant? Is disgust over age differences the same as the disgust someone there may of had over A* and I being a being of different races/ethnicities? What if it was tables of older women and much younger men? Would the reaction be different? Should it be? Can I ask you one more question? Can I? Annoying? (I'll be over here if you need me).

When I worked 4 the Hard Rock Casino (tampa) I saw that ALL THE TIME! Seriously, you can't help but wonder. Were they escorts or were the men that well off (cause you know women ain't interested in love). It was always 10 rated women w/ 2 rated men

I think there are certain environments where youth, beauty, and wealth have more currency than other factors. South Florida, LA, big beauty-pageant-bible belt states (mostly the south). I can't speak so much about other parts of the world. Certainly a 28 year old of either gender with a 48 year old doesn't bother me as much as an 18 year old with a 38 year old. Or look at it this way: 13-year old + 19-year old = jail sentence (and appropriately so), but 26-year old + 32-year old = anybody. I think it works the other way now two, with the same caveats (older woman, younger man).

Only in America is age an issue. How much of a difference is too much? If I was a 100 and dating an 80 year old no one would think twice about it.

I sort of agree with Van...it all depends on what age bracket both of you are at...an 80 and a 100 year old...not a big deal. I say that if both of you are over 35 go to town, if one or both are under that then 7 years is my limit.

Well, I am guilty of, at the most, dating guys 10 years younger than me. I've only done it perhaps 3-ish times. They've been more mature for their age. It started when I was 28 and dated an 18 year old. Damn he was sexy hot!

I've also dated the other way around, age wise. When I was 19 I dated a guy who was 39. He was a member at the country club I worked at. That was the largest age difference in an older man I've dated. Mostly, they been no more than 12 years old than me. Which I don't think is a big deal.

I have to speak to the double standard. Women live longer. Men hit, and pass right by, their sexual peak at a FAR younger age than women do. (I read somewhere that my time is now!!! Oh crap...I need to get moving!!) Why should't we date much YOUNGER men? I don't personally because guys are ridiculously immature and a 20-something-year-old guy would just be...well...annoying. But also, a younger guy wouldn't ever CONSIDER a 40+ woman. A 35-45 year old guy has no problem attracting women 25-35. A 45 year old woman has to concentrate on 43-60 year old guys. They are the only ones who will be interested. Why the age double-standard??

My rule of thumb: if I can give birth to it or it can reasonably be my father, no thanks.

The love of my life, whom I've been with now for two years, is nine years younger than me. GO ME!!! ;) He's also the most mature man I've ever met, honestly (comes from having to raise his two much younger siblings). Fortunately, we don't look like there's that much age difference, so we don't get stares when we go out.

I have problems with the idea of putting any teen, even 'adult' teens of 18 and 19 in the bracket of huge age difference dating, but once the person is legally able to drink in the USA, I don't give a rip how much older their significant other is, I suppose.

One of my good friends, when they got married...he was 37, she was 22. But he was a young 37, and she was an old 22. And they fit. And, three kids later, they're still going strong.

Seeing them together, it fit.

So I'm with the "You know it when you see it" brand of age-difference grossness.

I don't think it's so much about age, as it is maturity! Devin is 6 yrs older than me (perfect), but I can see him dating a 30 yr old... he's very playful and silly. (not that all 30 yr olds are or anything)

I don't know what I mean!! Forget it!
Let's just say, IT DEPENDS!

I think there's a fine line...because I'm all for dating older guys...unless they're closer to retirement than I am finishing residency.

But yeah, it's bad in South Florida. You can sit anywhere in the Gardens Mall and just point out the 60-40s. Even in the parking lot...if you're a blonde female getting out of a Jag...yep. He's loaded and terminal.

That's right.... When she's 99, you'll probably be dead.
