    I'm Sorry But I Love An Older Man

    I am 23 now and I am really attracted to a man in his mid 30s to his mid 40s. When I think about sleeping with a man in this age range it really fills me with so much excitement! I don't like to date people younger than that, and I will go older if he looks within this range, or...

    When I was 16, I was approached by a 26 year

    old woman. I ended up falling madly in love with her. My parents found out and went ballistic! We slept together once when I was in college and parted ways due to miscommunication. We didn't speak for 15 years until about a year ago. We started talking and realized that we...

    Like justice, I believe love is blind.

    It takes no account of age, sex or race, and I believe it shouldn't. Yes, in the main people choose a partner from their own kind but it isn't like this for everyone, nor should it be! People are people, men are men, women are women, love is love and sex is sex! Age is relative...

    I'm falling for someone

    who is 29, and I am 15. He is the best person I've ever met and known, I don't think it's wrong. I'm rather mature for my age, and he treats me better than I've ever been before. We have conversations about poetry, or religion, or music, or just anything really. He always makes...

    I don't believe age matters

    unless it's like 12 and under with a ******* 20+ guy or girl. They're still a child. It's really ********** then. Thats my opinion tho~

    In friendship.. I believe it doesn't matter In

    relationship.. It does because if the girl is waaayy to young and you're really old then... If a nine year old is with a 20 year old then noooo

    I'm 16 (17 in a week)

    and my boyfriend is 21 and we're completely in love and happy with each other. Everyone picks on us about the age difference but in a couple years it won't be a big deal at all and hopefully the jokes die down

    wedding. He was 34. We dated and fell in love. I was 23 when I married him and he had just turned 36. He was 12 and a half years older then me and it never caused a problem in our life together. Jack was taken from me in a car crash last November just 3 days after my 34th...

    I think it depends on age ranges 34y/o

    and 42y/o is OK But 18y/o and 26 is not usual for me!

    I think age is a stupid number

    that does not say anything about a person's maturity, and I deeply dislike the association between beauty and youth, therefore age difference means nothing to me.

    Oldermen have become like an obsession w/ me. Though it's not as if I wouldn't give one that is younger the time of day, but gosh sometimes I can be sitting with my legs cross from arousal at a lecture (class) just b/c the professor shows this wisdom and experience that I know I...

    The older you get the more you realise

    that love is a weird thing. You find yourself attracted to all sorts of people. Now. If you are 21 and your love interest is in their forties, chances are you'll never be on the same page in life. But if one if you is 35 and the other is in their 50's, chances are you'll have...

    Why is it even such a big deal?

    I get that some people think it's wrong, disgusting, or that the girl is getting used, but that doesn't apply to all situations. That's like putting someone in a certain category just based on their age. Younger girls aren't naive and older guys aren't always looking for sex. I...

    I have dated men twice my age

    and had a great time. It could certainly be a factor in a long term relationship, but just to go out and have a good time, age itself is never a factor.

    Love is love. If you feel an attraction to

    someone who is older than you, and it's not just for money or the boasting or even for sexual purposes, then it's love. If you can sit in a room with this person and just have mundane talks and enjoy one another's presence, then props to you. Age is simply a number, but love...

    It’s probably not the popular opinion,

    but I think that age is completely irrelevant in a relationship. Of course there are exceptions to this (If you’re thinking about having a relationship with a 3 year old, you should speak to a therapist), but as long as someone is able to, of their own free will, able to...

    When it comes to making an emotional connection,

    it's the soul that starts speaking first. I feel most connected to those over the age of 35 all the way up to 80 and beyond... That must be why I've been thought to have an "old soul" my entire life. My grandmother, a mere 77 years young, is my best friend in the world. And...
