My question is, can he continue to date her without the threat of being a "sexual predator," should her parents become unhappy with him.
You're 50, so that means you can date a woman who is 32.Now you're dating someone 11 years younger than you. Wow, at 70, the 42-year-olds are probably some of your daughter's friends from high school who grew up hanging out at your house and who have now gone through divorces. When women date younger men, they are called "cougars," and people say they are messing around with younger guys.Your friends are going to be really impressed that you can date a younger woman. She's been around the block a bit, but she's still not a luscious, incredible woman over the age of 30 yet. So at 46, you finally get to have incredible sex with a beautiful, mature woman -- but you have to wait 46 years to do it, according to this urban legend. That makes sense, considering the fact that an 18-year age difference is something to which you should really be accustomed. So finally, after all these years, you can actually date the kids you knew when they were kids. That's exactly what women are looking for at that age. Here they are, still looking great, young and fantastic, and there you are with your skin sagging everywhere. There is a negative connotation to a woman dating a younger man. Maybe try dating people who are within seven years of your age -- on either side.And that means I can date a woman who is 16." From where did this ridiculous rule come?
You can date someone as young as half your age plus seven years? It's no wonder that so many women feel that men their own age are too immature.
