Do you guys think a old and young relationship is weird?

    Well, I am awfully young but I am dating someone that is 42.. We get a long very well. He does youthful things such as going out with me and such, but it seems like when we go out everyone gives me the death stare like we're doing something wrong. We tend to ignore it.

    What do you guys think about these relationships?

    yea i was dating a 43 yr old when i was 20, lasted about a year i think. was excellent fun and he really showed me another way of being myself. he showed me how little it really matters what others think. w held hands publicly hugged kissed on the train/bus in the car ect. it was the first time i had been publicly affectionate with anyone and it blew me away. i think alot of my success today is owed to this man. although it ended badly it really gave me the confidence to be myself, masculine,manly,big,strong and gay.

    so no, i dont think it is wierd

    have fun a fuck the haters (not literally, that could cause complications lol)

    Thanks for the diverse comments.

    I can definitly see how some people can see it "sick".. Sure I am embarrassed sometimes but in the long run I could care less!

    Yes he definitly broke the ice for me too. When we first met I wouldn't even walk next to him because I was so damn paranoid and cared what people thought but now I am a lot more affectionate towards him.

    Shit, I wouldn't even wear lighter colors like yellow and such because of how closeted I was.

    He has definitly shaped me up, probably because he has been in the gay scene longer.

    As a self-admitted dirty old man, here's my take on it: if an 18-year-old guy wants to bend over for me (and believe it or not, there are a few who do), I'm fine with that. And I think older/younger can make for good "friends with benefits": I think the older has much to teach the younger from his life experience; and the younger has much to teach the older from his fresher point of view.

    However - for a primary love relationship, I think it's best for the two partners to be in the same stage of life. If one partner is finishing college and thinking about what his career might be, and the other is contemplating retirement, it's going to be difficult for them to row the same boat, as far as making a life together.

    PS: My husband and I are within 3 years of age of one another, so it's not like I've ever tried a May-September marriage, so what the bleep do I know? icon_smile.gif
