Is Age Such a Barrier?

It seems that age is a big barrier for many women, yet they do not realize that an older man can make things much more interesting and satisfying. They need to get off the notion that someone is as old as their Dad, etc. and just see guys for who they are inside and know that some may truly rock their world.

You have to remember, everyone has his or her own preferences dating preferences. I myself do not like to date people close in age to my parents. Is it because I am young and immature? Maybe. Is it because it makes me uncomfortable? Yes, most definitely.

Being in my early 30's only has allowed me limited experiences. Someone in their late forty/fifty's has 20 years plus more life. I would like to have children; does someone in their 40/50's want that? How can I relate to the 1960's and 70's when I wasn't born or very small? That is a major part of someone's life in this age bracket. I know only from books and television, and that we all know is sooooo accurate!

I have gone out with older men, and the looks and stares are very uncomfortable. Let's not forget that my manners and behaviors are not as refined as someone more seasoned.

To play devil's advocate, would you want to go out with someone your mother's age? Even if we back up 10 years....not as a Wahoo I got laid, but in a serious relationship?

I have several friends that are much older than me, but I would prefer to keep them that way.

These are just my thoughts. Take them as you see fit.

Thanks for your comment and you are welcome to your opinion... but for me, age is not a barrier, for I have dated someone 20 years younger and 11 years older... made no difference to us and we did not care what others thought or looks we may have gotten.

I disagree with your viewpoint and you are a good example of one's closed-mindedness. The barriers society places upon our culture over time has been an unfortunate thing in which many are blinded. My point is that truly mature, intelligent, and open people should look and see the idiotic barriers placed upon society and give them up. Crossing those barriers is not only sensible, but exciting! For the diversity of each others' history or lack of history and the diversity of each other's experiences make for an intersting experience and interesting companionship. My final comment: sad!
