    59

    Last weekend I went on a date with a 59 year old woman. I am 37.

    The date was quite pleasant. We simply met for a lunch (because she was skeptical of a date with "someone so much younger").

    By the end of the date she said: "I am glad we did this. Thank you for being persistent."

    When I said: "I will contact you soon, maybe we can do this again" she said: "Yes! Please do. We should!"

    And she sent me a couple emails the next day about enjoying meeting me. And we have been emailing more since then.

    Thoughts on this situation? Lemme have it. haha

    I dated 6 years and 8 years younger. No biggie unless you think it is a biggie.

    Do you have an Oedipus complex?

    Seriously, I don't see any issue. If you enjoy her company and she enjoys yours, go with it.

    It is not an issue to me. Though I have noticed -- and maybe this is an individual thing -- she is not especially forthcoming. Women around my age (and younger) tend to just say all kind of stuff, about themselves, others, anything. I think that men around my age and younger do this too, perhaps because this is what they all do on social media. haha

    I have known a few people with the woman being this much older that worked out very well. I would just see where it leads. I think older women take longer to share. They are not used to blabbing their personal lives all over the place.

    I have dated men 15 years younger which was too much of a gap as he was immature and 5 years younger who I had a good run with and who I am still friends with. I have also gone up to 5 years older, but everyone who was older than me was controlling.

    I think it sounds very promising! IN my family there are at least three of these younger men older women marriages, and they have worked out very well.

    No, but I like that I would not have to worry about accidental pregnancy if she and I were physically intimate.

    I think I am just going to ask her on another date and get to know her more. Just take it one step at a time. If it continues to go well, great! If she and I appear not to be a match after getting to know each other then we both move on. No big issues.
