Is dating a younger man such a bad thing?



I'm a recently divorced 39-year-old woman. While I'm relatively new to the dating scene, I've been trying out all sorts of things that my married self wouldn't have thought possible -- like actually going out and having fun with my girlfriends at bars, dance clubs, etc. And of course, while doing this I've met a few suitors on dating site ----cougarconnecting.com-----. There's one man in particular that is wonderful: he's caring, kind, has a real job that earns him good money and he is very attractive. There's only one problem: he is only 26! At first, I thought he was in his thirties and I don't really look my age, but I've noticed that once people find out our age difference, they call me a Cougar and make other annoying comments. He says they are just being funny and that he loves spending time with me and I shouldn't care what others think or say about us if we make each other happy. He's also the first one to tell people about the age dif

Since you're only as old as you think you are... It sounds like if neither of you have a problem with it, so then its no biggie. Let other people say what they want... their opinions won't change anything.
God Bless :)

It's not necessarily a bad thing. People only make remarks because they're not used to seeing such a thing. Interracial couples, couples with height differences that are extreme, age differences (although not usually very apparent) and the likes are all commented on. One of the big talking relationships this year is courtney stodden's wedding and she's only 16 , and her beau is 51. So, it's , unfortunately, what people do, however, they have nothing to do with you or your relationship with the man. Regardless of his age, if he's not bothered, then why should you be? You can't really say you're "not" a cougar, I don't see what's wrong with being one. Heck, I'd be one to be honest if I'm single whilst older. If it holds any negative connotation, that's as a result of you thinking the term is bad or something. Which it is not, objectively speaking, it's just an older femme who dates younger gentlemen. My parents are 10 years apart nonetheless, and to be honest, this shouldn't even be an issue, since you're both legal and adults. This is just a matter of preference, and preference is an individual thing so you should take his advice and not pay them any heed :)

Well I see your relationship as no other than something that does not conform to society norms. That wouldn't matter if you both are happy with each other on nobody's expense. Nuff' said.

My boyfriend's father is 36 and his gf is 52 and i never noticed the age difference untill my boyfriend informed me. I think as long as he makes you happy and you make him happy it shouldn't matter.
