Dad dating younger women
"True love can be ageless," declared actor Doug Hutchison, 51, an actor who starred in the television series "Lost," when he announced his May marriage to Courtney Alexis Stodden, a 16-year-old beauty pageant queen turned aspiring country star. Kelly's rumored romance with 15-year-old singer Aaliyah to rocker Ted Nugent falling for 17-year-old Pele Massa in 1978 -- and becoming her legal guardian because she was too young to marry him -- relationships between older men and younger girls never fail to make us squirm. states, a person can't legally consent to sex until age 17, and individuals under 18 years old must have a parent's permission to marry in all states except Nebraska, where the legal marriage age is 19. Lou Ann Brizendine, who has written about brain development in males and females, says that girls' brains are as much as two years ahead of boys' during puberty and that boys may not even catch up to girls until late adolescence or their early 20s, so a few year between partners can -- and often does -- make for a compatible match.
It was my realization that we had nothing in common (yes we seemed to have a lot of spark on txt messages and via email) once we were sitting at a table together.It was a moment of finding myself, not discovering that she was younger. What she might be thinking, her motivations for sitting at the table are for us to discover, hopefully, via clear and honest communication.I discovered that I wasn’t interested in this attractive, younger, woman for a variety of reasons I tried to articulate. There are just as many women in online dating who do the exact same thing. The discussion I am hoping to facilitate is the antithesis of these issues. I really do appreciate you taking a chance and voicing your opinion.That’s why I am trying to come out with my individual perspective that seems to be different from the experiences you’ve had. We (men and women) need to have more frank discussions about desire, sexual preferences, and how we want to relate to each other in and out of the bedroom.My post shows some of my learnings as a result of these mistakes.
It’s pretty telling for both men and women when their profile says they are 50 and they want to date partners who are 30 – 40. I’m pretty clear about wanting a woman who’s experienced a lot of the world.
And I think our culture’s focus on youth is way off base.
But I’m not sure porn is any more the driver then the Miley-Cyrus-type circus of celebrity and mainstream media. And it has an effect on all of us, adults and teenagers. I am hoping to get better, clearer, and more honest with each attempt at being in a relationship.
I agree with many of the things you say are wrong between the relationships between men and women.
I am not an apologist for the cultural norms that have stacked the deck against those of us who are trying to elevate the discussion about it all.
Some 16 percent of girls had sex with male partners who were 4-6 years older and 11 percent had partners that were 7 or more years older.
