Would You Date A 40-year-old Virgin?

Sylvester Stallone was 42 in 1988 when he began dating model Jennifer Flavin, who was 19 at the time. They now share three daughters — Sistine, Sophia and Scarlett. “Very happy to let everyone know that my partner Anna and I are expecting a little angel of our own,” the “Good Omens” star wrote. They welcomed daughter Lyra that September and in 2022 became parents again.

I tried online dating, although according to the site I was very popular (I’m 6’2″ and very fit) I went on a few dates then called it quits after a few weeks, lesson learned. Frankly, reading the list of “demands” women gave online was giving me a bad opinion of women. Hey Bobbi, great blog, I’ve spent 2 nights reading all these comments. My 2 pence worth for what it’s worth as a man coming from the U.K……my story briefly….i am now 47, I got divorced in 2019 after 19 years being married. From her perspective I don’t know but I guess it was a lot different…….

Celebrity Breakups That Broke Our Hearts

You’ll have to go to extra lengths now to reassure him that you really do accept him for who he is. That will be a tall order if you are criticising his boyfriend. Yep, what everyone else says really. He’s technically an adult at 18 so really, you can’t do an awful lot about it. Call his bluff- welcome his boyfriend into your lives & meet on some neutral ground (pub/restaurant) – See what he’s about. I think Natalie’s suggestion is a good one.

I’m a girl, so I wrote about my experience. Rowan Atkinson is 28 years older than girlfriend Louise Ford, with whom he shares daughter Isla. They moved into his London home together just weeks after his divorce from his wife was finalized in 2015. Could the 35 years between Clint Eastwood and Dina Eastwood be one of the reasons their marriage failed? Mel Gibson’s latest girlfriend is 35 years his junior! The actor-director welcomed his ninth child — son Lars — with champion equestrian vaulter-turned-screenwriter Rosalind Ross in early 2017 when he was 61 and she was 26.

My hubby is 9 yrs older than me & its NEVER been an issue. I have been coaching women for over 10 years and have NEVER met ONE who was a golddigger or any variation of one. That’s because the women here are smart and kind and quite capable of doing just about anything for themselves. Believe me, men do the same things all the time. Especially the unrealistic expectation to feel unbelievable chemistry after 5 seconds.

You may not be in the relationship for all the right reasons.

Maybe guys find young girls to be more youthful, attractive, or fertile in their 20s and 30s. Nevertheless, I am beginning to feel like I am unattractive to men my age. Sadly, I had a few guys I met in public places in their early thirties ask me out but I’m simply not attracted to young guys.

Did you know that Gwen Stefani is seven years older than her The Voice co-star and fiancé Blake Shelton? Stefani is 51 while Shelton is 44. The singing pair got together in 2015 after they both went through divorces from other musicians. Stefani was married to Gavin Rossdale, with whom she shares three children, and Shelton was married to Miranda Lambert. “When we met, I was 41, and I’d always had younger guys pursue me, and I was really sick of it,” Mullally told GQ in 2017. “And so I met Nick and I thought, Oh, great, ’cause this guy’s like 38! Turns out he was 29. And I was pissed.”

Have never had anyone set me up on a date and the few friends I had, their wife or gf never ever have any single friends. It can feel overwhelming at times when you want to have the male counterpart to reach out and connect with and do not have. But making time to just be me for my kids and myself is of utmost importance at this time. I hope you keep reaching out and not give up.

I’m a 47 year old white guy and i really like tattoos, they are damn sexy. Well perhaps the best thing to say is that after reading your diatribe, I felt a little nauseous and then had a few dry heaves, had to take a walk https://datingmentor.net/ so i wouldn’t think about vomiting. I don’t really think there is any help or advice that anyone could offer you either, in this day and age in the U.S. I highly doubt you will find a woman to put up with your nonsense.

I Had to say something when I read your comment. So much of your story and perspective mirrored my own journey and I wanted to say thank you for sharing. As a man, I’d say you’re not alone in your experience, fears, and desires. My baggage seems too much and I don’t have a solution. I have a diagnosed mental illness that I manage well I think.

To me ethics, values and courtesy supersede gender roles and sexual stereotypes. It makes it a lot easier to pay up! There is plenty of time later on in the dating cycle to talk about my abhorrence for gender roles and how uncomfortable with sexual stereotypes. But I have just learned that certain things are not worth fighting, and it’s not like I am going on 5 dates per week and can’t afford it.
