35 year old woman dating 28 year old man
At 23, dating young is complicated by that pesky “college” business.Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled you’re educating yourself; I just think it might be hard to date you right now. I buy vegetables and change my sheets on a reasonably regular basis.Everyone thought we were the same age because she looked young.If I were to date someone 19 now, I would have the same reservations as you.My God, if pontificating about the love lives of other people is the best we can do with our free time, then it's no damn wonder our country and the world is in the sorry state it is currently in.Wondering whether or not other people agree with you that it's wrong is utterly pointless, because the bottom line is that it isn't for you or anyone else to judge what they do in their own lives. I agree is they are legal consenting age it really shouldn't matter.
How much does a woman's age factor into whether men find her attractive?
I know there's a lot that goes into the mix--personality, zest for living, confidence, etc., and maybe I'm warped by my few experiences. I've dated women 10 years younger (when I was 35) and 10 years older (when I was 40). Personality, positivism, humor, attitude, and enthusiasm matter much more after that first 2 minutes. It's a nice place to meet people and get past that first 2 minutes.
But given a choice and all else being equal, wouldn't most men over, say, 40, prefer dating women who are substantially younger? It's also a way to "meet men" without being in a place to "meet men" (like a bar). I am at the age where, for health reasons, I don't need a woman unless she is a nurse but when I was 40ish I lived several years with a woman who was 60ish and found nothing about her unattractive that was age related.
I stay active--working out, hiking, etc.--and am in good shape with a good BMI. Are men in general actually attracted to women my age?
I don't know if I'm attractive or not, but I'm not ugly. I ask because the few single men my age I've met/dated have really been looking for women who are substantially younger (say, ten years or more). It just seems like women my age are pretty much ignored by most men unless they're married to them (and sometimes even then).
