A friend who is 5 years older than me sent me a note recently and told me that if I ever got divorced, she'd marry me. Well I dated a woman that was 9 years older than me. It wasnt so much an issue as far as having things in common went. But it was a hang up for her and I had my doubts about her aging. But to be honest the age was an issue to some extent.
I felt that in a few years it would be an issue because she would look older than me. Well I dated a woman that was 9 years older than me. It wasnt so much an issue as far as having things in common went. But it was a hang up for her and I had my doubts about her aging.
As a younger man I would not have; I wanted children and someone that much older than me probably would not have been a good candidate.
If I were on a second marriage, I would consider it. But to be honest the age was an issue to some extent.
And it’s not just for celebrities-according to a 2008 AARP poll, almost one-third of women between the ages of 40 and 69 date men who are 10 or more years younger. What will Madonna have to do to make sure her relationship lasts longer than , for some advice. “The assumption that a younger man will inevitably cheat on an older woman is part of the historic nonsense by which women are made to feel fearful, valueless and undesirable,” she says. Judging from, infidelity is by far the biggest issue cougars face.
Look at Halle Berry and Eva Longoria, who ended their relationships when their younger men allegedly strayed with younger women.

Says Winter, “More and more, I’m meeting young men partnered with women 15-20 years older, both of whom don’t want to have children.” In fact, the desire to remain child-free may account for many younger men seeking older female partners in the first place. So a woman’s ability to successfully date a younger man may ultimately come down to being an independent thinker who is brave enough to buck the system (kind of like Madonna).
“Madonna lives her life boldly, openly and without regard for social convention.
But that fear has forced her to come up with her own solution to the issue. ’ Your answer could be, ‘I’m going to get a facelift.’ My answer is, ‘I’m going to be such a beautiful person inside that it’s going to shine through to the outside,'” she told the magazine.
“When you’re with a younger person, you have to think, ‘What’s going to happen in five years? No matter what your age, to go forward in life with an eye toward becoming a kinder, more loving person sounds like an infinitely wiser approach to keeping love alive than worrying over the inevitable appearance of laugh lines.
