    Just wondering what people think about this. Of course, this is nothing I ever need to worry about since I'm happily living in what I anticipate to be permanent sin with the Atomikette, but here's something I posted on the relationships forum in response to Spuff asking what people thought about him dating a 15 yr old. What do you guys make of my story? Did I do the right thing, or was I a dirty old man? Answers on a postcard please.....

    When that story started it reminded me of one of the saucy tales you get in Escort magazine ... don't do a bit of moonlighting do you Dok?

    *yes, yes, I was sad enough to actually read Escort magazine as a lonely teenager*

    Well hell, I was looking for a career change! But still, you can't complain when you're living out a dirty story for real, eh? And the best thing was, she had these..... *cough* *cough*

    dok, the thing with your story is that all involved accepted it and had a happy time. no harm was done, and as you say, it did you both alot of good. By the sounds of it she was mature enough, and it's great that you've stayed friends :)

    Y'know, it's funny you should say that. Poor old dear had a hard time with her daughters. The younger one was a bit of a tearaway, and Marge (names changed to protect those involved!) never had much time for herself. Soooo..... this one time, I had a friend who was slightly older than me and a bit of a casanova. Took him along when I went to vist, and he seduced Marge! It was funny as hell the next day when my girlfriend's mum politely thanked me for getting her laid! It was even funnier when I told my friend that the Marge was actually 49, and not 38 like I'd told him originally......

    Yeah, that's the thing that makes me think I did the right thing, really. Doing the math, I reckon we've been mates for about 12 years now - through the thick 'n' thin of both of us having partners in that time who didn't understand how exes could still be good friends!

    i think age gap relationship are ok aslong as the age differance isnt too extream, i say 10 years apart max. id just had my 17th birthday when i met my current bf, who was at that time 24 nearly 25. i cant say i was matture because i wasnt, i was very hypoactive & immature & a little mad. we stuck through tho, if i hadnt spent the last 3 years with him i dont think i would be as matture as i am now. he has helped me through alot, and i say we are very good together. i'm always learning from him & he looks at things with a little more of a matture out look yet i'm still alittle immature which makes him feel younger. if i come to a big obstical in life we sit, talk & explore all the posible solutions before making a disision where as if i wasnt with him i'd just think of the first solution & do it. it depends what kind of person you are & what you want from the relationship.

    My sister married a guy 33 years older than her at the time I was about 20 and I thought she was mad I tried to get her not to marry him she was either 26-27 he was 59-60

    I was really wrong

    They stayed together for about 10 years had a terrific son, the guy she married is in really good shape still and was a good husband they didnt split because of his age

    She didn’t marry him for his money and had had people her own age wanting to marry her

    Anyway the whole business is pretty confusing I’ve known people who have married older or younger people and it hasn’t worked out I’ve known people who have married people their own age and it hasn’t worked out

    Out of the people I went to school with I think only ones still with the person they first married and they were the couple no one would have thought would have stuck together

    Also I’ve noticed that some people age faster than others my ex-brother in law is part northern Chinese and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him chopping firewood at a 120 like the oldest women in the world did

    You get some people who become couch potatoes at 22 and other people running triathlons at 80-90

    more important than the age thing are things like common interests and love
    would you trust this person would you choose to spend lots of time around this person
    imagine you are going to cross a desert and have to choose a person to go with you

    yup, age is a number :) but you have to be mature as each other, if not it could get kinda weird

    True Confession! I like older women. When I was 17 I had an affair with a woman of about thirty, it went on for some time, and afterwards for a while, girls 'my own age' seemed boring. It kind of set a pattern.

    Now I'm in my 40's - I suppose its something - the liking for older women - I'll have to look at again! But I guess ther are some very attractive ladies in their fifties out there.....
