I ask this question because I have been approached by a gentleman who is much older than I and I am not sure what I think of the age difference.

This may have been a topic that has been discussed before but it just came up in my life. Words of wisdom and thoughts will be greatly appreciated!

Laurel, I would like to be idealistic and say age doesn't matter. And sometimes (SOMETIMES) it really doesn't. But the truth is, I get approached by men here, the majority of the time they are in their 50's. It is just too old for me. My lifestyle and activity level is just way too young. I also look pretty young for my age. When I look at these older men...and sometimes they are just a couple of years old...I think 'yikes- this guy looks older than my parents!'

Just sayen it like it is. sorry.

Laurel,

Personally, I will not generally go any more than 5 years either way. There are exceptions to that I am sure. But I have not met a man that much older than me, who I would want to date or marry. I can't think of what I would have in common with them. But it does depend on the individual and I would have to be attracted to them to even consider it. I have met a couple of younger men who I have gone out with but the age difference was only 4 years.

I think everyone needs to make their own decision on each person. Best wishes for a hard decision.

If I was receiving unwanted attention from a man, I would tell him directly and without smiling that I am not attracted to him and that I will not date him, so that he might not confuse my "no" to mean in reality a potential "yes" that he has to work hard at getting. irked

Jerry, it's my never-to-be-humble opinion! I've seen plenty of old geezers my age and older with arm candy half their age, and they look rather foolish. Same with a guy who's 40 and wants a 20 year old.

Go with your gut. You have the answer within yourself. Don't overthink it, just go with your gut. If he's too old then tell him you're not interested. If you're interested in him then go for it.
