At 44 years old, you should know, by now, that the best experiences are with mature women. I don't know how your ego might or might not be in need of "support". Believe me though, if you want to be around a woman who actually will do anything constructive for you (emotionally and maybe physically) then you need to be with a woman who is, indeed, a woman. Don't waste your time or emotional health chasing anything you are old enough to be a Father to.
From legal to still breathing.
How about someone that is at the same maturity level as you are; someone to whom you can comfortably relate to and enjoy sharing conversations with. Age is merely a number.
Hi Sean. I'm no dating expert but I'd say. 35 to 50.
I see this thread ended almost a year ago, but my search has landed me here. I am a 30 year-old woman, (marriage and family therapist). I work in a community program that I am very passionate about. Part of dating, especially online dating, that kills me, is finding someone who is equally passionate about their career---especially a career closely related to my field (mental health advocacy, working with at-risk youth, etc).
Finally, I met someone who works ---coincidentally, in a program that is run side-by -side by the same non-profit agency. We are essentially co-workers who don't work together. We maybe see each other 2 x weekly in passing. We have recently started spending time together. The drawback (other than breaking the golden-work rule), is that he is 44.
I adore him. I feel amazing with him and we share similar interests--and he understands how much I value my career.
So a 14 year age gap is intense. I have done 12 years before when I was in my 20s--it was awful. Now that I am centered with my career, the only thing that let's me just drop everything and go for it, is the fact that I eventually, want to have kids. I am concerned that with me being 30 and him being 44, I will start to feel rushed. Also, if we go that route, I feel stressed and worried to think about the other aspects, like him being 64 and me being 50--- possibly raising kids as he nears 70. I also want to adopt/foster, so perhaps this is something I could do with him.
I am left feeling like the only thing that stands in the way is cultural expectations. I feel myself falling in love with him but yet, worried that I may be making a huge mistake.
right now i am sooo attracted to a 44yr old acquaintance in my life and its very confusing.....because i am currently in a longterm relationship...not looking for someone else but i can't keep my mind off of him.....never felt soo damn tempted and honestly its refreshing to read that someone similar in age to me has strong feelings for an older man!
don't base your possible match now on what happened in your 20s. You've changed SO much since then. Give the guy a chance!
I'm 47 year old guy. Going out with a 31 year old woman. Look, everything you are saying is true, but i look and i act like a 30 year old person. I'm in the best shape of my life and when i get to 70 i will be in shape and my brain in perfect condition. Because i exercise both. She will be fine with me and for whatever years we spend together, those years will be the best years for her and for myself.
Please excuse my English. Not my native tongue !
honestly it depends on your preferences, between 18 and 55 probably :)
No more than 10 years in either direction ~ so:
34 to 54
I just went thru this last summer trying the on line thing... and while I had no problem dating men much younger than me, I felt a lot of pressure to be some young hottie I wasn't... my man is 10 yrs older now, but looks about 5 years younger than me... it's a good fit.. I only projected out 5 years give or take... so he would have never come across my screen... happy to have met in the real world at a music venue ~ something we are both very passionate about... LUCK
32 - 48 ... need to consider the age of friends and relatives, too.
18 to infinitey. age shouldn't be a barrier for you although it seems to be for a lot of people. if someone wants to date you hopefully they won't ask your age (or care!).
Anytime! Theres always someone out there. Age doese'nt matter.
The sensible answer? That depends what you want out of a relationship. But if you want to have a common ba
21 to 88
Mid-30s to early 50s. After that, it depends on the person. You'd have SO little in common with someone more than 10 years younger than you.
I would say, from 20 to 35, would be the right age group.
That's ridiculous. That age group - for a man his age - is just one to shore up his ego. It's NOT the age group for a REAL relationship!
Honestly, you can have meaningful relationships with any legal adult, but you're more likely to find people you share common interest with between 30-55 or so. Once you get outside of that range, the age difference starts to become a big deal.

Depends on how mature you are as to how mature you can handle. Just remember, take sex out of the pic before you really decide if this is the best friend you're wanting to tell all your deepest darkest secrets to, be completely honest with, and get as-wise-as-you-are feedback from. Equality, not perversion, ultimately wins, as eventually boobs point to the ground and balls hang low... Who will share your era, your music, your shows, and be able to read your mind? That's what's really important, and what will surface in your day to day life. Sex will just come and go and not really matter once you get sick of the same grimace or frown.
I'm 33 and my boyfriend is 48,we've been dating for three years.It works because we don't want kids since I already have two,I'm very fit and look great,we both make our own money so are not co-dependant.He may be 15 years older but looks 10 years younger and is very young in spirit and healthy so is as good sexually as a 21 year old only more experienced,so I don't see him as old at all.Age is just a number depending on the person.
