i have just started dating a 51 yr old woman, 15 years older than me. we have so far been on 3 dates over the last couple of weeks. on each of them we have been stared at & even heard silly little comments like...she is old enough to be his mother...he should get a girlfriend his own age..each time we have ignored the comments

I've been in 2 serious relationships with mature ladies (one 10 years older than me and one 14) and each time we went out I always got the same thing. That's when I grab her around the waist and pull her in even tighter, look thier way and ask "Is there something you wanted to say" or something like that. It never fails, they always look away and won't look back at you. It takes them off gaurd, considering it's none of thier business. I recently started "dating", I say this because she is still caught up on the age thing and doesn't think it will work, this very classy lady from work who has 15 more years of life experience. She still doesn't want me putting my arm even on her shoulder, wants people to think we are just friends because of what people say. So sometimes it's not just the outsiders, but someone in it that is not comfortable with it. But conversation is a big thing for me, and she knows how to carry one, so I'll break her of that nonsense one of these days. It's kind of funny how men who are dating women 10-15 years younger than them don't get as much attention.

VDS: I'm chock-full of cute epigrams and anecdotes, but mostly I just like shocking people. I also abhor the behavorial manifestations of close-minded people, but you live in California, so I'm sure you never encounter closemindedness. ;)

I think people are afraid of what they aren't unaccustomed to. If you love the person do what you want. Age shouldn't matter. It takes confidence, frankly i could care less what otehr people say.

Enjoy your relationship you never know what tomorrow will bring. A lady told me one time about a much younger man she fell in love with and he wanted to marry her, of course she was afraid but she married him anyway.She spent five wonderful years with this man before he was killed in a car crash. She told me those five years were not long enough. So as you can see you never know what each day will bring.

It does make you wonder why they think that you have to have someone "Your Own Age"... The question is, do you think so? If you and her are happy, content.. it shouldn't matter. Although ignorance isn't an excuse. Time isn't given us as an endless promise. Enjoy and don't let those who don't know the first thing about you or her, be the ones to make it seem wrong.

You have to understand you're venturing way outside the societal norm. Whenever someone dares to be different and ignores the rules, he or she is going to be ostracized in one form or another. Some are envious; others resent the fact you think for yourself and are oblivious to their opinions. The next time you notice someone staring, stop, turn to your girlfriend, and say, "I love you, Mom," and kiss her square on the lips. ;)
