What has age to do with mental stimulation?

People are intelligent, or they aren't, age (and education) has little to do with it (unless they are kids, and even then perhaps not).

Tom

Well, indirectly, nothing, or at least "not much."

One of the things that does kick in is events that were current when you were AgeX.

For example, I lived in Hawaii when I was a teen, I was at school the day the Challenger exploded. There was an astronaut on board by the name of Ellison Onizuka who was from Hawaii, it was a really big deal at school - some of the students or teachers related in some way to the family as well as being something of a local (state) hero.

Meanwhile, my husband was four at the time.

So, as intelligent as he is, he simply has a hard time relating. Things like that sometimes make it a bit tough in the "mental stimulation" department... things that are important to him (age + nationality both come into play for us though) are not so much for me and vice-versa.

We do pretty fine finding common ground though.

Re: Dating girls 15 to 20 years younger than you

I'm 42 now and I would never date a girl younger than 10 years. (edit : that means not under 32 yo )

in fact I'm more seekin' somebody around 35 - 47 yo





(if somebody's interested... )

Re: Dating girls 15 to 20 years younger than you

My Grandfather was 15 years older than my Grandmother and their marriage lasted over 40years, so sometimes it does work

Re: Dating girls 15 to 20 years younger than you

What does your wife think?

Joking (or maybe not) aside, as long there are different areas of common ground and a meeting of the minds, and not just purely physical (not really mine, or anyone else's business, but ...), then it could be viewed as a relationship that may not just be for the present, and short term.

The reason I think this, is because if so-called research and anecdotal evidence is to be believed, then a younger woman is still to reach her sexual peak at a time when an older man is already beyond his. This may or may not be a cause for concern, but may cause some incompatibility problems, at some point in the future.

For younger men the thought of an older woman, is often appealing, because of the above (I was no exception). The sad thing is, that as a man gets older - of a certain age - himself, this is no longer a relevant option.

Maybe just enjoy the here and now.

Re: Dating girls 15 to 20 years younger than you

The guy is divorcing, he is complaining about the amount of money he'll have to pay, and now he got a twinkie (If she exist, she is not with you for your cute eyes.... If your personnality here match the one outside in the real world.... ) Next story here will be about how is ex found out and try to screw him up more...

He could have gone for a Porsch to get his midlife crisis our of his system but he loves too much the attention he gets here about his sex life...

More you talk about it, less the chance that it does actually happen...

Nothing to see here.

So if you say your " just over 40" ...what do you think of going out with girls 15-20 years younger than you.. i have a mate of 43 and he is going out..and going to marry a girl 20 years younger than him ...im in a similar position myself my new girlfriend is 19 years younger ...sometimes at the train station, when im with her i get strange stares ( but i guess that happens anyway in Switzerland)...will she run off . should i take this seriously ..or just enjoy the sex...?
tbh, the age difference doesn't really matter that much after a certain point. it's not like she's 16 or something.

i don't think we'd care if you decided to have sexual relations with goats either. it's your own business.

This is the most cosmetically enhanced thread I've seen on the forum yet. Half of the replies have been deleted, including many from the OP, and it had even been closed. Now it's been cleaned up and opened again and yet the replies again are heading down the same road as last night.

How about posting a picture of yourself, then we can give you a really good read of your situation.
WTF? Surely you mean post a picture of the woman?

Dating a girl younger than 10 years is a criminal offence in most countries, Bertrand... I think it is fair to say that most people here wouldn't either.

What about mental stimulation? Do you want to go to like a boyband concert when you have just received your Saga mag at home?

After you are "out of lust"- will you have anything in common?
Reminds me discussions we had as students (young and arrogant, full of assurance on our bright future): would we date a hairdresser* ?

*: not to offense hairdressers, but we just took a "persona" to represent another extrem.

Don't worry. People just think that your daughter is looking great...
