Why is Age an Issue?

This is an obvious question many people in my age group ask. This becomes an issue between younger men with older women, and younger women who wish to be with older men. I cannot fathom the young women with older men, but please allow me to discuss younger men with older women through my very own experience.

I had the fortunate experience of dating a young woman of 30 years. She was beautiful in so many ways. So very intelligent, so very athletic (she was a principal ballet dancer for 7 years and had danced all her life). She was open minded, experimental, and strong of heart. I am idealizing her of course, but please bare with me. She was incredibly submissive, but the most gracious thing was her smile. This woman was a real woman. Her ambition and heart was phenomenol and rare. The only reason it didn't work out was because I was married to my books. She remains, to this day, one of my closest friends.

It is that experience that has opened up my eyes to age. It is a shallow trait. There are people who do not mature, their maturity is at different grades irregardless of their age. As an ambitious, tenacious, intelligent young man I do want someone who will do more than just lay there and sweat and wait to be satisfied. I am growing myself; experiencing new things, new people, new cultures, new languages and new adventures. A partner my age knows the pleasure of sex but is afraid to experiment. Usually this is the case but there are exceptions of course.

So here I am, calling myself an exception to the age trait. Of course, I know this may seem cocky. Understand that what I seek isn't sex experience, and not LIFE experience either, but rather someone who has the open mind and rigid frame of mind to allow safe experimentation. Who is open to conversations of what our culture may consider taboo. Who isn't ignorant to what's going on around them and their definition of a good time isn't just a few drinks at the bar and then straight for the bed. No no... there are so many places other than the bed and so many great scenes other than the bar.

I find I don't have much in common with someone much younger than myself.

"Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened."

That's quite interesting as I find that though my colleagues at work are at various different stages of their life with the conversation of children and marriage often coming up, that I can manage to relate to them anyway. Either with their history or just experiences in travel and various other aspects of living. Are you sure that age is the issue or that it is much deeper that happens to be associated with those that are younger than you. In other words, is age the reason or does it have to do with the personality?
