  • I personally see no problem with it. Me and my husband are 25yrs apart. Him being older. He is almost 50 and I am almost 25. But honestly if you see something there it is always worth giving it a shot. I honestly believe my husband is my soul mate and even though he is older I love him sooo much! How does he feel about it? What about your daughter? If either of them have a problem with it maybe try to work something out. If neither of them cares then I would go for it. I would be more worried about what your daughter would think about it. GL

  • How old is she? If she is an adult then no. She is grown.

  • I say have fun with youngin. Enjoy each others company and just live life no worries about age because in the end when both people are adults does the age really matter for a good time and to get along?

  • If he is an adult (18 or over ) then go for it. But if he is under 18 back off and rethink it.

  • I can't figure out why anyone would want to date someone who is at such a different point in life, I don't see much in common other than maybe liking the same band. My 18 year old brother in law is dating a 27 year old woman and I'm like wth do they talk about? The mall? Hannah Montana???

  • Hell to the yeah. Nothing wrong with being a cougar. Have fun. He might be "the one" he might not. You wont know till you try.
