  • Just because he is old enough to be her dad doesn't give me the right to judge. They are both over 18. They are probably about the same maturity level. I wouldn't date someone old enough to be my dad but I like younger men.

  • I wouldn't find it ideal for myself, dating someone old enough to be my father. But both of them are over the age of legal consent, so what they choose to do with their lives is none of my business.

  • Oh hell, that's nothing. There's an 80 year old man and his 30 year old bride and they just had their first baby!
    His wife hasn't been dead more than 6 months before he married this chick!

    Now the baby is covered under his SS and Medicare...pisses me off when I see him I adored his wife!

  • I am not bothered by the idea, and I think the age difference itself isn't really anything on which to base an opinion about a relationship ("good," "bad," "gross," "okay.")

    I do know couples with that age difference.

    I will add, too, that there are people that much older than me who certainly are "old enough" to be my father but that feels meaningless because my father was that old when I was a little kid, not when I was 33! I wasn't raised by a man who was 20 to 25 years older than me, or 30 years older than me. He was older than that when I was born.

    I have BILs (my husband's big brothers) and close friends who are 25+ years older than me and they are honest peers to me, not "like parents." One BIL got married the day before I was BORN!
    If I were single, I can imagine being attracted to or loving some of those men.

    But the older we get, the less ideal a big age difference might feel to me (logistics.)

  • I don't have an issue with it, everyone has to find their own happiness!
