Do you think a 60 yr. old man would have a problem with dating a woman that's 38?

I am 38 and he is 60. When we met, we was well aware of each other's ages. When we go out, he does things for me like hold the car door open, pull my seat out, and would walk on the sidewalk closest to the street. A gentleman. We always had a good time when we go out. He is a well groomed man for his age and he is very attractive to me. He was someone that I confided in when my ex bf and I were living with each other. After my ex left, we became close and later became a couple. He ended up losing his job. He ended up moving in with me and that's when things started to sour.

Waisting my life because of how he's acting or waisting my life because of the age difference?

Update: July 28, 2010.
I have told him this but he tells me we are just friends. He only seems interested if he thinks I am seeing someone, or if he can't get in touch with me. All the time we have broken up I have not been seeing anyone. I asks him all the time about spending time with me and coming to see me but he always says he doesn't have much gas to come. (He stays across town from me). But he always finds time and gas to go everywhere else. I don't know what it is. I keep asking him and he always tell me we are just friends and he's not looking for anyone to be in a relationship with. He says he is trying to straighten his life out with God and a relationship is the last thing on his mind.

I love him and I really want to be with him!!

A older guy is my preference. Have dated men that are my age and years younger than me. I think he may need some time. I try not to call him as much to talk about us. If we both start seeing someone else then we just do. I am trying to pursue someone else right now and I told him that. He is now wondering how serious it is between me and the other person. He also told me tell him if he calls me too much and doesn't want to lose me out of his life since I am seeing someone else.

I was talking about the response you made referring to me as a daughter. You were trying to be funny.

In reference to Rafiki910. The age thing doesn't bother me and I thought it didn't bother him either. But it has to be something he's not telling me. We never had a problem with going out and being around other people because of the age difference. We always handled ourselves in a very sophisticated way. Never had a problem with other people looking at us strange and whispering, nothing like that. And if they did, it would not have bothered us. We know how to handle ourselves. People will talk regardless. And if they talked it may be because they are jealous because we were a good looking couple.

He evidently has no "problem" with your age. Its sad that younger guys never learned manners like that. Society as a whole is pretty much devoid of that "courtesy knowledge" nowadays.

It sounds like you have the "problem" with his unemployment.
Money issues are the prime reason behind most relationship failures.

I don't think his problem is being in a relationship with a 18 year old woman I think it's not being the bread winne rin the relationship. He clearly ha sold fashined values because he is a true gentleman and thats great when it comes to opening car doors etc..but when it comes to being the bread winner in a relationship he would be happier if he was taking this role because thats what in his mind the relationship should be like

No I think a lot of 60 year old guys would LOVE to date a 38 year old woman. You are still relatively young and probably are very attractive to him. Him being an old school gentleman is probably why its a little sour right now. He wants to be a provider to you and now he has to let you take care of him which is hard for him.

My parents were 25 years apart, and my grandparents were 22 years apart. Age really doesn't mean anything if you are compatible. If not though it can wreak havoc with your lives, since you are from different generations.
I dated a guy 15 years older than me, and we got along better than most of the dates I ever had. It all depends on your personalities and how you deal with each other.

As long as he enjoys good health the relationship will have some level of balance. As he ages, you run the risk of becoming less his partner in intimacy and more his caretaker. Think long and hard about this.

i think that it would actually be harder for you to decide to date the older man, rather than the reverse......not saying there is anything wrong with it, just that it would probably be more of an effort on your part......
