Now you're dating someone 11 years younger than you. Wow, at 70, the 42-year-olds are probably some of your daughter's friends from high school who grew up hanging out at your house and who have now gone through divorces. When women date younger men, they are called "cougars," and people say they are messing around with younger guys.Your friends are going to be really impressed that you can date a younger woman. She's been around the block a bit, but she's still not a luscious, incredible woman over the age of 30 yet. So at 46, you finally get to have incredible sex with a beautiful, mature woman -- but you have to wait 46 years to do it, according to this urban legend. That makes sense, considering the fact that an 18-year age difference is something to which you should really be accustomed. So finally, after all these years, you can actually date the kids you knew when they were kids. That's exactly what women are looking for at that age. Here they are, still looking great, young and fantastic, and there you are with your skin sagging everywhere. There is a negative connotation to a woman dating a younger man. Maybe try dating people who are within seven years of your age -- on either side.
I’m imagine some of these men think to themselves: be reasonable.
So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.
I sort of thought there would be an age difference between those who use apps versus those who date only in real life, but even with the tech-savy there's a big split between the different apps.
With some regularity, I hear women complain that men older than their desired age range are contacting them when dating online.
Before we get into it, I definitely think that you shouldn't be signing up to something just because it's popular — there are so many different dating apps out there it's easy to find one that's right for you, but it's still really fascinating to see which ones people are flocking to.
