Would you date someone 30 years younger?

was on fb yesterday
saw an old boyfriend from high school
he is dating this man
(ok, news to me, but whatever)
this "man" he is dating is 20 years old

the old boyfriend is almost 50

50 years old and dating someone who is 20

to me... 20 is like a child (like a child when you are that much older)

  • No. What could i possibly have in common with someone 30 years younger? My ex was 13 years older and even that was too much for me.

  • 30? No because that would be a newborn - 1 year old (I will be 31 in June) lol

  • No, but to be far that means I'd have to be dating a ten year old.

    I don't know how big an age difference is too big, but when you could be the parent it feels too big to me.  There's an almost  ten years between me and DH and its been great for us, we've been together 20 years and still love spending time together.

  • I am just 41 so of course not and if I was 50 now, still no.

  • Impossible for me, as I can't date someone who won't even be conceived for another four years. But seriously, EW. No

    Answer by tnm786 at 9:02 AM on Jan. 14, 2013

  • No. I would NOT want to be with someone I was old enough to be mother to.

  • 30? hell no. but i did date someone 20 yrs older then me but i wouldnt do that all the time. It takes a special man for me to be interest in someone almost twice my age
