  • Never. Because now my question to that person is WHY would they want to date me, and what are their intentions with me. Plus I'm not attracted to older men, and neither would I allow that attraction to turn into anything perverse or something I don't personally agree with for myself.

  • no. think by yourself.
    you will be get matched with those children. there are many things which can happen. boys and girl are of your age.
    they will not pay respect as a mom or old women because you are of. there age.

    and there are many other reasons.

  • Well, my girlfriend is 24, so she could be my daughter. So I guess in that sense, it's a yes on her part.

    But at my age now, that's becoming more and more questionable.

    • Eventually you might end up on the other side of this equation

  • Nope. Because she's most likely my parents age unless she had her kids in her teens. Even then, nope.

  • Hmm... I don't know. Perhaps, if I have come to peace with not having my own children. I'm not sure I could do that though. Granted, you did say "date". So, it's not like I'm going to marry her.

  • I'm a FT working single dad & I know no woman will want a man in my situation. Most people will not be keen on taking on children that are not theirs & I can't blame them either.

    • I applaud you for raising children single handedly whilst working full time. It's not easy at all. People struggle to do that when working part time.

    • @SuitAndTie Thank you , Sir , it helps that my boy is 13 & is at secondary school. My daughter will be joining her brother in September , so that takes some pressure off me , no more school run , then work !!

  • I wouldn't.

    • So wrong. Lol. my mom just turned 70 and looks like she's in her 50's so hello to me when I'm that old! Lol

    • Show All
    • i so agree with you. i've always been attracted to guys 18-22. i'm all about physical attraction and though i don't think about age the guys i find attractive always turn out to be in their early 20s.

  • No, I don't like children.

  • No, I wouldn't because if I'm dating a guy I'd rather not be his geriatric nurse (he'd most likely die about 20 years (give or take a few) before me, assuming we both die of old age). I also have to add that I also feel like the dynamic between a guy that much older than me would be more along the lines of father/daughter😷 (I'm not immature but I am somewhat childlike w/ my optimism and I'm stubborn as hell sometimes). In the event that the guy was really immature and that's why he wants a teenager for a girlfriend, I'd still want nothing to do with him... I don't want to be a 38 year old's nanny

    • Omg, why did I read this question as "would you date someone 2 times your age?". My bad.

    • To answer your actual question, no I wouldn't date a guy with kids my age because I'd feel like his adopted child as opposed to his girlfriend. I mean how could he look at me when I'm at about the same stage in my life as his own children and not be somewhat reminded of his kids?

  • No, I Would not date my father so I would not date somebody his age either, this is sick to me, but HEY some others might consider it normal it's on the eye of the beholder, everyone has different ideas on this one, but ME personally NO NEVER...

  • Sure.. I would not be dating their children.

    And it would be cool to have a friend my age that i am dating her dad.. we could do so much fun stuff together..

    Sure, it would be weird if i got married and had step kids my age or older, but I am not marrying or dating them..

    i would definitely not date someone who had kids my age because 1) it's awkward and 2) i don't want kids.

  • I used to have a crush with my boss in my previous job. I was 23 and he was around 48. I would have no problem dating him but sometimes he used to point out that he has a daughter around my age and that swept all the sexual tention away. So if he feels the urge to mention it all the time, ermm no. But generally I am not appalled with the idea of dating someone that much older.
