Ok, I know question is directed more towards the ladies here, but I'm a man 47. I'm just replying to give you a mans side of view from dating an older woman. I have dated two older women,both were about 10 years older than me. We got along fine as far as age goes,but in the back of my mind, the age difference kind of bothered me alittle. I'm not really sure why, perhaps its a man thing. My personal preference though is to date someone my own age or someone a few (less than 5) yrs younger than me. Perhaps it is just a man thing wanting to be older than the woman I was with. I do believe age is just a number though, as long as every one is happy.
