older men, oh man....

  1. Eek! I think there is something wrong with me. I'm only 18 and i find older men attractive, like much much older, haha. I'm talking George Clooney(ok, but who doesnt like him?!), Bill Clinton(what the hell?), John Stewart(Daily Show host), my 6th grade English teacher. I even think G. W. is cute in this sorta baboon way. anyone else like really older men or really younger ones?

    maybe not quite what you consider "older" but my hubby is 10 years older than me. and he's the closest aged man i've ever been involved with. :chuckle

    Well I think the "older man" just may have a lot more to offer than the younger man.

    Well, I also think that George Clooney is a hottie, but all that does is make me look like a dirty old lady......

    Saccharin, I totally know what you mean. I am also 18, and I am very attracted to older guys. Mostly b/c most of the guys I know my age are extremely immature. My boyfriend is 5 years older than I am, and some people think that's too much of an age difference. To me, its nothing. But, to answer your question, yes, I am VERY attracted to "older" men....
    However, I DO NOT see your interest in Bill Clinton!

    I think it depends HOW much older. I went on an Alaskan cruise once...there were a few newlyweds that the groom was 90ish and the blushing bride was 20something. (ew, ew EWWWWW)

    Makes me think of that horrid movie "Monsters' Ball" too.

    But hey, love is love

    My husband is five years older than me. I would not even date anyone any closer in age than that. I love older men, they are much more mature that the ones close to my age. I am 45 years old, when I got married I was 30, he was 35. I went to school with the guys around here that were my age or around my age and at 30 they still were not mature. It is just something about an older man, more thoughtful, knows how to treat a lady like a lady. :kiss

    I totally agree that older men are not only more mature, but know how to treat women as more than someone to get into bed and then forget. And, now, with Viagra, they can actually DO something when they get the woman into bed!!!

    My hubby is 8 years older than I. I was 19 when we met. He is definitely the best thing that ever happened to me (besides my children). The age difference really hasn't been an issue for us and actually I think it helped stabilize our marriage. We had some rough times in the beginning (mainly d/t infertility issues, but that is whole other thread). I think if I had been married to someone my own age the marriage wouldn't have survived. We have been married over 14 years now. I think once you become an adult (over the age of 18) I don't think age is as much as an issue. If I had been 15 and going with someone who was 23 my parents would have absolutely forbidden it. (Now I do think the 90 y/o man with a 20 y/o bride is pushing the age difference a little bit... ). I think you are just acting like an 18 y/o woman.

    Deespoohbear, I remember wanting to know why my parents wouldn't let me date someone who was 21 when I was 16. My mom's reply was, "If you were 21 and he was 26 there wouldn't be a problem." Of course at the time I thought she was just being mean. A very wise woman, my granny, once told me, " the older you get...the smarter your parents get.". Now that I'm a parent myself, I know why she was the most intelligent woman I have or will know.
