To think that a 40 year old man dating a 21 year old is off? | Mumsnet Discussion
8 Apr I am 45 Just got married in June, 1st marriage, My wife is 22 Dated for two years no sex. I was kinda creeped out by age difference. But you, 15 year old baby and you in your 30's! That's sick! It took two years to see where her head was, she was 20 at the time. A 15 year old doesn't know one damn thing. You're both adults! So no i don't think its wrong. Anyway, what does it matter about what other people think? As long as you are both happy!:) you get to a point where you dont even think about the age to be honest. (23 dating 40 year old) never got on with anyone as well as i have now, find most guys around my age quite. Age gaps are "wrong" when talking about teenagers and children. A year-old dating a year-old is definitely wrong. There are major maturity differences there The fact of the matter is that year-olds expect very different things from a relationship than year-olds. When two people are older than.
Which is what is happening with a friend from work.
She's a very young 21, at Uni, likes to drink, party, mess around and have more info of relationships.
She works 6 hours a week at a cafe. He's a mature 40, owns his own houses and runs his brothers very successful electronics business. He has never had a long term relationship.
AIBU to think its a bit odd for an older guy to be wanting a relationship with such a younger woman? I am asking what people think not for a lecture on whether I should be judging. I have a friend who is 31 years younger than their partner. They are sickeningly happy.

As long as they are both adults, who cares? No In my 20's all by boyfriends were in their 40's! I don't think it's outrageous at all. One of my best friends has a similar age gap with her DH - think they were 25 and 44 when they got together, now happily married for three years and expecting their 2nd child.
I'm 28 and all my boyfriends bar one have been in their 40's. It was the one the same age link me who was the abusive wanker. Having said that, none of my relationships have worked out I suppose in my early 20s I didn't really have much in common with them.
It's fine continue reading, they're all adults! I think most 40 year old men would be ecstatic at the prospect of getting some action with a 21 year old female. But although it's clearly not a popular viewpoint on here I also believe there is something not quite right with men of that age who deliberately seek out relationships with women who have only been adults for a couple of years.
We got together when I was Nothing 'wrong' about it IMO, in fact we 22 Year Old Dating 43 Year Old be better suited. I have never had a happy relationship with a guy my own age. DP is late 40s.
At 43, he's well-established and has his career in full swing. I totally buy younger women going for older men. I literally gave a coworker my number and told her that he was going to be mine.
He looks at least ten years younger than he actually is, and he thought I was rather older than I am. We had a connection instantly and hit it off straight away. We have our problems, of course, but none of them down to our ages.
On Dating An Older Man
I had a similar age gap and was happily married until I was widowed, for 22 years, as said, age gap relationships can work. I had fun with men in their 20's, whilst happily single, no harm done. I know someone who is 22 Year Old Dating 43 Year Old and dating a 24yo and someone who is 39 and dating a 21yo They seem happy ish but no, I'm here comfortable about it.
What's age got to do with anything? If they're both happy and available to be in a relationship why be wound up about it? And what right have you anyway to be judgemental? Well my mum married my dad when she was 21 and he was They were married for 35 years before dad died. My dad was 54 when I was born.
My own DH is 12 years older than me. We have been together for 14 years and married for Age IME has nothing to do with how sucessful a relationship will be. I won't tell you the age gap between me and OH then.
Do you think it's right for a 47 year old man dating a 22 year old girl ?
In my eyes it would be wrong but that's because I'm 22 and my dads Well, I think you can tell a lot about a man by his choice of partner. He is a man I probably wouldn't hold in high regard. I'm 21 and it would be too old for me. I tend to stick to a 10 year rule.
