    20 years older is a bit too much for me personally but who knows? Dh is 11 years older than I am and with some things it sometimes it feels like it's too many years between us then others it's just peachy.

    I don't know, I might. It would depend on how young they seem to me and if there is an attraction there.

    Although I am very happily married, I told DH if I were ever (God forbid)single again I would most definetly seek out someone conciderably older than myself.

    I don't think I could comfortably. I am currently dating someone 7 years older than me and though we get along great I can already see that he's less flexible than I am and we both think it's due to age.

    My last SO was 17 years younger, and remember the age gap problems we had, I would not date someone that much older. Besides, I'm 55, so they would be ANCIENT! LOL

    Well, I might DATE them, but I wouldn't get into a relationship with them.

    My DH is 10 years older than me and while I dont have a problem with dating anyone 20 years older than me, I would make sure he isnt such a fuddy duddy when it comes to certain things.

    What I am saying is I sure would try it but before falling I would see his habits, etc..

    I'm 52, so that would mean the gentleman would be 72. Hmmmmm----yes, I think I would if he was a "young" 72.

    As I get older age is more and more just a number. It doesn't mean what it used to mean to me.

    Actually, when in my mid 30's I dated a rew men who ranged from 18 to 33 years older than I, and one who was only 25 and had never lived away from his parents - he's the one I'm embarrassed to remember! The older men were all intelligent, charming, interesting, active men. Those matter a whole lot more than age to me!

    I would gladly date a man 20 yrs my senior if the attraction is there.... and I have. He was knowledgable about the world and more importantly himself so he wasn't still "discovering" who he wanted to be. He was financially secure, articulate and intelligent to boot. He knew enough to talk and when to LISTEN. I'm very happily married to someone 4 yrs my junior but he has all the qualities I admire in a man.... well most all of them.

    There is a vast difference in experience if you are in your late teens or early 20's so perceptions and goals for your lives may be very different. The older you get the smaller the experience gap becomes.

    But if a great relationship is there, age has no meaning.

    Lordy. . .Lordy. . .Years ago I dated a guy who was 40+ years old than me. On the other side of the coin, I dated a guy who was 22 years younger than me.
