- As a year old, I dated a year old.
- You obviously have scant regard for them.
- This must worry you for some reason, but it shouldn't.

They will always find something to disagree about. Personally though, if it was me in that situation, you would definitely have to go thru a few intial excercises for me before I would even consider the possibility. Just my tastes there, not a belief that it can't happen.
50-Year-Old Women and 25-Year-Old Guys
- 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?
- Are you sure that they've failed at competing?
- You like who you like, ask her out and if she says yes I hope you both have fun.
It's not that it's not okay to date them, I'm just not into them. If the guy in question in this post was a millionaire, I bet the parents would have no problem accepting him and welcoming him into the family. Myself, atlantic city speed dating and I am sure others on this thread would question his morals and values.
Someone else on here said that it would probably work as long as you guys both want the same thing. Eventually he was transferred to another city and that was that, but we had a terrific time. It is weird in the sense that it's not typical and it is something some people might look down on you for. It didn't last, tree orange but he's still one of my favorite people in the world. Does that make it bad or a bad idea?
However you were not yet dating so I would say go for it and date him first. She needs to be dating someone more in her maturity bracket. 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.
Or date one of Daddy's golf partners if you really want to make your folks even more concerned about you. The genders are, to me, irrelevant. Does that sound like any kind of healthy or happy way to approach a relationship? Older women, because of their confidence and experience, also make better lovers. Not sure why you keep hijacking the thread with your short rants.
Work or not, it is something you will be proud of or ashamed of later in life depending on how you handled it. Two people, well met, who happened to have an age gap. Women are people, just like you. Hell, some of them actually think they own this forum and just because they must have an opinion any opinion on any subject at any time of the day by anyone!

They are coming across as defensive. Maybe you are afraid to stand up to your father and telling strangers to go to hell is easier? She, on the other hand, never seemed to get over the age gap. Definitely something that needs to be figured out before you plant your flag on this guy.
To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! He's not concerned about the difference at all. It's never been any kind of issue.
If you're thoughtful and mature and your are compatible, great, have a good time. It ended, and now she hangs her head in shame as it was a Daddy issue. But the experience stayed with me and I think I've figured out why. White picket fence dreams with him?
No way, that's not even a big age difference. Like most things, it's okay with some people and not okay with others. Whomever started that cougar and milf shit should die in a fire. Older women are awesome because we're well established, are independent, have careers, cool interests and do fun stuff.
Any ideas for why the change happened? Don't go fishing subconsciously or not for reasons to not go for it. She was lucky to be with him all this time.
So ask her out first, see how it goes, and don't overthink the age thing. Luckily, the doors opened at that moment and, with an eye roll and a smirk, I pushed my way out. If it doesn't work out, it doesn't work out. Age doesn't really enter into it at all.
Do not let people like this drag you down to their level. The same thing with George Clooney, who is in his fifties now. My reading of your rebuttals suggests to me that you actually have a good handle on your situation already. There are so many example of a sucessfull life after dating even there is a huge gap in age. They got married two weeks ago.
If you could see your way clear. In other words, either a five year age difference between consenting adults is creepy or it isn't. However, you are escalating the debate by name calling, which isn't very mature. But then I read the rest of this thread, and I changed my mind.
Year-Old Women and Year-Old Guys
Also, I'd just like to request that you and society as a whole work super-hard to unpack yourselves of this notion. In all cases, it was two people being attracted to each other, not two numbers. Just work on correcting relationship with your parents. Or you could realize you're being ridiculous and ask this one out now.
And then, seemingly suddenly, our outsides and insides no longer match, like one of those unexceptional movies in which the personality of a year-old girl invades her mother's body. We made a great couple, and were together for years as well. If some year old dude referred to me as a cougar, I'd probably smack him right upside the head.
But the fact that it concerns you and you have to ask this question says to me, pretty strongly, that you personally shouldn't date this woman. What matters is what you and the woman think about this, not what we do. The older party being a woman doesn't somehow make it wrong, man iron that's a sexist double standard and it's bullshit.
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? Even moved in with him, quotes about and yes I objected. As far as I'm concerned it's fine. But heaven forbid if people with the same age difference try that in real life.
