Age Or Attraction?

I am 42

In my time here on this site (as well as other sites) I have noticed there are many of us, particularly of the female gender, that seem to have an issue with a persons age. As I surf around looking at profiles of women it always amazes me how many red X’s I see next to the age category under the ‘You’ category. Most of them that are there are from women in their 20's. There are some that are in there 30's and there are a few that are even in their 40's.

To me personally I am not hung up on age. I do not care how old a woman is for as long as I am attracted to her physically and she stirs my curiosity. Just because a woman is far younger than I doesn’t mean that I desire her and conversely just because a woman is much older than I doesn’t mean I do not desire her. It’s not a power trip for me. As far as age difference is concerned I’ve went out with women that were as young as 19 years my junior (yes they were at least 1 and I’ve went out with women that were as old as 13 years my senior. I enjoyed them all and I do believe it was mutual. What can I say? I love women!

So what’s more important to you? Age or attraction and tell me your thoughts.

you're not going to be for everyone, and everyone is not going to be for you. don't take your middle age so hard. concentrate on those who do desire you -- even if they are (gasp) too far away you have physical distance limits, according to your own red x's. some folks have temporal distance limits instead.

don't push. respect their limits. keep searching.

I agree with your comment. I will write however that for one I do not have a problem with my age. I do respect everyones limits. Now when it comes to age I do believe that alot of people set this age limit based on preconceived notions. For instance a woman in her 20's, without taking it into consideration, will more often than not think a man in his 40's is way too old for her. My question is 'too old for what?'.

I would also like to add that I viewed your profile and you're quite an attractive lady! Been to Albuquerque many times and loved it!Thanks for commenting and please check back often!

I've dated a range from 5 years younger to 20 years older. Attraction was always the determining factor.

Don't let that stuff bother you. In my opinion there are quite a few people on here that are just on her to get attention and boost their ego. I think you're sexy. Remember - you are the master of the lair in my story.

It doesn't really bother me so much as it is just merely an observation. By the way,..we have something in common. I think you're sexy too! Welcome to my lair and may the story continue!

I prefer to not date someone younger than me...been there, done that. I don't want to be their teacher in life. In some aspects, it's okay but in the thank you. As for you "older fellas"...I found most men who are older in age, are actually on the same level (that's not an insult, by the way) that I am. We can carry on a conversation that is two sided--unless it's politics, then I clam up 'cause I don't read enough on the subject to really have an opinion. I do shy away from dating anyone who could have, in theory, gone to high school with either of my parents--that's just yucky.
