Okay...so I've always been attracted to older men. My girl friends however always seem to date guys their age, give or take one or two years, if that. Recently I've been getting closer with a guy who just turned 39 and he wants to go out on a date. Of course I said yes. I don't think it's a simple answer of "he more secure" financially and more mature. The guy I'm really into but isn't available is 33. I'm 25. My parents met when my mom was 24 and my dad was 34, they dated for 9 years and then got married, so the age difference obviously was never weird to me...so maybe it has to do with how I grew up. My Dad was always mistaken for my grandpa...I remember when I was five (he was 53) and someone said he was my grandpa and since I was sassy I told the person off yelling, "he is my Daddy!" and my Dad laughed. So, tangent over. Why do you think some women are more attracted to older men? I can safely say I'd never date someone my age or younger. And I don't have Daddy issues btw...so don't start a thread about chicks with Daddy issues.
