I'm 40 He's 20 My sons are the same age as him, and they are fast becoming good mates. They're not phased, so long as I'm happy. My daughter however (who is actually older than him by a yr) is not happy about it, and neither is his mum or his friends. We're both single, both adults, the sex is consensual and safe. I'm being made to feel like I should be ashamed and have been accused of sexual manipulation, whereas he's receiving awe and admiration (dbl standards for the win.) When you see a woman with a younger man, what's your first impression?

Right, what do you offer each apart from sex?
I can't see a 20 year old offering much to a 40 year old woman in terms of mental stimulation, security, long term partnership. Neither can i see a 40 year old being anything but a pseudo mother (unless she's as mentally mature as a 20 year old herself, which isn't a good thing either).
When i see huge age gaps i see one or both partners having issues with themselves.3

Your son's will not have anything bad to say about it because they are Desiring women your age as well. I was fortunate enough to be with a woman your age when I was 20 and it was epic... You have earned this you deserve this and anyone who tries to throw the double standard at you either wants to be you or wants to be inside you2
