  • Ick no, but my dad's girlfriend is, or almost. Dad is only 2 years older than his girlfriend's oldest kid. It's so gross. She's so old. Ew, I just puked a little.

  • Yes and I have. I used him mostly for lustful pleasures and am with someone my own age now but I have no guilt. We're both single and we enjoyed dating. Then SO came along and I dumped the young man like a hot potato!

  • No, I would not. Heck, I couldn't even date a guy more than about 10 yrs younger than me, b/c I'd be sitting there going, "When I had my first kid, he was X (going to prom, in 8th grade, cutting his first teeth)". That thought would gross me out.

  • No. I think it's gross. I had a theory in high school about older guys who wanted to date me . . . what's wrong with them that no one their own age wants them? I don't want to be that person and I would never want to make my child uncomfortable in that way. Imagine a son being afraid to bring his friends around his mother . . . sad.

  • I've dated guys 10 years younger than me, and didn't see anything wrong with it. We were of legal age, and single, so if you can, why not? Age is nothing but a number...
