Is there something wrong with a 23 year old dating a 47 year old?

He says he wants a baby and his youngest child is 8 and his older kids are older than me and I havent met them yet and Im kindof nervous but Im really feeling him and he's feeling me

  • Like my husband said we didnt make the same choice but your both grown and both know what YOU are looking for and if being with each other makes you happy then to hell with everyone else

  • I would put off the baby conversation until you are waaay more serious after you have met his kids and like any relationship been together for reasonable amount of time. As for age, it doesn't matter as long as he treats you well and you are happy! :)

  • It is up to you. I think the age gap is a little too much for me. My husband and I are 8 years apart. I would of not go past 10 years.

  • It's not something I'm into, but to each their own. At least you're both legal.

  • The only thing that should matter is how you feel about each other. meeting his kids would be a good idea before you two run to vagas, get married, and have a baby. And if his kids are your age it might not be that easy becouse they might not agree with their dad decision but soon should except you becouse it is their dad decition not theirs.

  • For Me I wouldn't date a man that is old enough to be my father My Parents are 45 (Mom) 52 (Dad) little odd, I was born in 1985 I won't go past 1973 (12 years) which that can also be a bit much at times Young/old enough for Your own mother to date. But to each there own.

  • I am 25, my hub is 49.  We have children together.  I see nothing wrong with it.  His age has lots of advantages in my opinion.

  • He's old enough to be your dad. YUCK!
