Does it work

Postby InDilemma » Sun, 02 Apr 2006 8:40 am

to be in love with a guy younger than you?
I mean, will a guy think of loving someone older?
we are not talking about 1 or 2 years older, but probably around 6 to 7 years older

would love to hear opinion(s) from the other gender

Thing is when you're 15, the age gap might seem broad but as you get older, somehow it's not so apparent.

There are different camps when it comes to 'love with an older/younger guy.'

I can only say for myself...

... I believe it's the maturity level which is more important. It is afterall about the soul...

mate.

I recon it's okay. At least my 1st wife thought so at the time. I was 21 and she was thirty. (I also took on the responsibilities of her eleven year son as well)

The reason the marriage didn't last (7 years) is something else. I agree with tiki however in so much as 15 is a bit too young if you are a guy. Not only that, it can be considered statuatory rape if caught.

Well I've loved my mother-in-laws, :D seriously shouldn't really matter, it's all part of the maturing process, and if he cares enough about you, to make the effort.

I was always chasing older women, when i was 14, 15, and lost my virginity to an 18 year old, I guess there is kind of a maturity process going on, crikey i even fancied the French teacher at school, many things going through a young guys head at that age, and it's not really girls the same age, because they are so giggly and silly and don't really know what they want.

All part of growing up fast, I was in the pub darts team at 15 and played much better than those in their 30's & 50's, always had an eye, for the more mature woman. What's that film SMS!

The Graduate I guess we both got our diploma's quite early :D 8-)

Ten years difference, just coming up to 5th wedding anniversary. Who knows what the future brings, but so far it hasn't been a problem.

Well, apart from when he thinks that Westlife did the original...

We are at 6.5 years and everything appears ok, apart from what all males suffer from after the novelty wears off, .....Just let the newley weds think that statement out. The older males will realise what i mean, and may be the women are scratching their heads in :???:
