What would go though your mind if you saw a young pretty girl with a much older not so pretty man?

Yesterday I saw this really young pretty girl (she looked maybe 21-23) dressed real nice holding hands with this man (who looked maybe 55-60) who was dressed a little raggedy. I'll admit I stared for a few seconds but I didn't know why I found it so strange. I didn't automatically think "gold digger" cuz he didn't look very rich! But what do you HONESTLY think when you see couples like this? Judgemental or honest!

  • Honest... I think gold digger or daddy issues.

  • well, were they being to touchy feely, because I'm 20 and I still hold my daddy's hand, and my grand daddy's hand... I'm a daddy's girl all the way. Now if I saw her with his tongue down his throat I would probably gag, and whisper gold digging whore under my breath-this being said if he appeared to have money. If he looked like a bum, I would assume she really cared for him. I dated someone 16 years older than me, didn't look very sexy, but was super sweet, and nice, and I actually held real feelings for him, and he was DIRT POOR! lol

  • Well I didn't want to bring race into this but she was asian and he was white and they were alone so unless she was adopted...

  • Generally, I don't. My husband is just days shy of 16 years older than me. Granted your scenario is a much bigger difference, but I know how wonderful my relationship is so I don't give it much thought if I see another couple with an obvious age gap like that. There are women out there who might have issues or maybe are looking for a sugar daddy, but in my experience the majority of them are not. (FYI, my husband is not rich and I had/have a close, healthy relationship with my dad)

  • i look much younger with my hubbie because i am 4'11" and he is 6'3" and he has a beard. we are only 1 year apart and i think it is soo funny when people stare at us like that. i don't know why i just do. i look like (i've been told) 18-19 and he looks like 30.

  • I've been out with a lot of rich men who didn't look the part. My first thought would be the same as you....he's rich. She gives good bjs.

  • I'd think that she and her father were enjoying an outing. :)

  • me & Phil

    What do you think when you see us together? Do you think I'm a gold digger, or do you think i have daddy issues?

  • Cha Ching, I've seen filthy rich men dress like crap just because you have money doesn't necessarily mean you have style or mail order wife?

  • I would have thought it was her dad, depending on the body language.

    Although, my last bf was almost 10 years older than I am and tended to like wearing his clothes till they wore out! (He wasn't a slob so much as he just HATED to shop!) ANd I was definitely not with him for the money.
