But generally, I think women a good five years younger (so long as they aren’t under 21) work well since women tend to be more mature than us guys.It’s not that I am some sort of alcoholic or can’t have a good time sober, but there’s something sexy and intimate about sitting in a bar that cannot be substituted by Starbucks or Jamba Juice.It also makes me feel like an old man if I am with someone that has to use a fake ID to buy a beer. This week a straight woman asks, “How much younger than them do you think most guys are comfortable dating before it becomes embarrassing?
” Gay Single Guy (Jay Dyckman): Yes, there is an age too young for anyone to date. Any dating combo of two people both under 35 (provided both are over 21…yes, 21, not 18) is probably not a big deal.
No one really considers themselves that old before hitting 35. If you’re over 35 and you date someone more than 10 years your junior, you will — and rightly so — be mocked (and silently envied) by your friends and enemies for such dating hubris. And this goes for both men and women: Dating much younger than yourself connotes a power dynamic that is creepy yet totally gender non-specific.
Besides, if the girl in question is still in school, the conversation will usually leave something to be desired due to her lack of life experiences and responsibilities — it’s hard to listen to tales of college papers when I’ve got bills to pay and employees to manage, you know?
There is a lot to be said for being in the same place in life, age-wise at least.
Both sexes look entirely ridiculous parading their toy around, be it male or female. This might seem arbitrary but age designations exist for a reason.But if you’re over 35, you can date anyone — of any age disparity — who is over 35. The good people of corporate America have decided that once we’re older than 35, we are no longer a desirable marketing demographic. After 35, big age differences are obviously apparent, but both parties have fully exited the nubile stage so no one really cares.
