Is he too old for her? Does it look creepy? Do the girls in the 23 age range think they would date a guy almost 40? What is the appeal here for her? The adam levine is dating a girl he is a decade older than, too. Do a lot of women just like dating decade plus older men?
Now Ryan Phillippe, who is 38, is dating a college girl at 21.
College girls and girls in early 20s, what do you think of this? Would you date a guy in his early, mid, or late 30s if he was handsome and still in shape and didn't look old in the face?

Ok... might as well weigh in here, after reading everyone's answers.
My last girlfriend was MANY years younger than me- a far larger age gap than the one you're talking about.
It was all very legal. I'm not rich. She was actually the rich one (I found out well after we started out... and it made no difference whatsoever). She did not have a daddy thing any more than I was looking for a young girl because of some middle age crisis. Far from it in either case.
I found out later that her mother (who was much closer in age to me) had also had a thing for older guys- dating for years a man twice her age... and her mother before her had married an even older man. Maybe it ran in the family genes.
I didn't go after the girl. but the other way around. Why? I dunno. She just liked me- and made her point clear. I actually put her off for a couple of years... but she was smart as hell and a knock-out to boot- so eventually I gave in. By that time I really REALLY liked her- and vice-versa.
The 1st time we kissed it was totally electric. That girl just zapped me: lips-nuts-toes and back to lips, taking the same route. That was it. We were together.
I won't lie... the sex was outstanding. This wasn't because she was younger- but because we just fit beautifully together. There's a lot more to great sex than just a couple of bodies slamming around. Our bodies- and minds- were just made for each other.
We had several good years together... so it was no flash in the pan. The first couple of years were quite spectacular, even. The girl knew how to love.
I am age blind as well as color blind... always have been. My 1st serious relationship was with a woman 14 years older than me. Before and after her I'd often dated women several years older. They were HOT and we could talk about stuff too.
Age continues to play no part whatsoever. I'll date older and younger- it doesn't matter. Its NEVER been about age (or money) and never will be... but about force of personality, mostly.
I really respond to "spark"... and intelligence... and "nice"... meaning kind and sweet natured, and generousity of spirit.
... and I could give a flying f*ck what others think about what I do, too.
