40 year old man dating 24 year old woman
She's at the end of her reproductive cycle and he's at the age where people are starting to consider long-term relationships, marriage, kids. My ex-husband was 12 years older than me, and although he was young and trendy in spirit, dress, manner, he always felt like the "old guy" around my friends, because he'd 'been there and done that' with a lot of life experiences.Love and attraction aren't enough, there has to be more there to sustain a long-term relationship, compatibility on all levels. Based on my experience, no, the age difference doesn't make any difference whatsoever if it's the right person. How many involved an older woman with a guy 15 years younger, though?
You can go back to attending frat parties and having people throw up on you. Do you really want to date someone who hasn't actually had a real job yet and is still going out and drinking like a college student?The second she starts to slow down in the bedroom or starts losing her looks, he'll start looking elsewhere.I think she should make a decision based on how she thinks and feels and not how she will be perceived.Based upon this rule, the only time that a man can date a woman his own age is when he's 14 years old (because half of 14 is seven, and seven plus seven is 14).So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
