with a man 15 years younger if you were almost 60? I know this has been asked a million times but you guessed it, I've been asked out by a younger guy. So now, what to do. I feel stupid even considering it so feedback welcome, I can take it. I'd love to know of stories where it's worked out between two people with vast age differences.

    It would be a little hard for my kids to handle. But I think if I liked him and we have things in common, I would go. Give it a shot. Who knows....you might have a good time!! Keep us posted!! Add me if you like.

    Go for it! What do you have to lose? If it works then it was absolutely worth it. If it doesn't work then you had fun trying :smile:

    I personally wouldn't because I'm attracted to older men, but nothing wrong with it!

    The only time an age difference starts to creep me out is if the younger party is the same or similar age to the older party's children.

    Absolutely, if I didn't have an amazing hubby!
  • If you were 30 and he was 15 I'd say no, but I think you should say yes and have a great time!

    Go for it. At least give it a try... you don't want to miss out on something potentially great simply because of a big age difference.


    (My mom's husband is 10 years younger than her and they're happy and have been married about 12 years.)

    If you connect with someone, who cares about their age....go for it! Life is too short to worry about what other people think, just enjoy all that is in the here and now because we never know if there will be a tomorrow! Have fun :drinker:

    My fiancé is younger. Not 15 years but 5.
    He's also one of the most fun, yet loving and mature men I've ever met.
    I say why not.

    The "will it mix" formula for age differential is supposed to be: half the age of the older person and then add seven, so if you're 60 and he's over 37, you're good...

    HECK YES! WHY NOT?!


    Go on a date...have a good time...go on another. Don't have a good time, move on. In my opinion, over 40, the age differences seem to disappear, but that's just me.

    I'm 40 and won't consider dating anyone under 35 but would go as high as early 50s depending on their lifestyle (I have lots of energy lol). Maybe I should open up my mind more to the 20-somethings that ask me out all the time lol
