The perfect age gap

The discussion about older men/younger women and Marina feeling like men will see her as too old in a few months reminded me of this article I read last week.

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/sex/dating-site-says-perfect-age-gap-between-men-women-is-6-years-2564234/

This is the part that really caught my attention:

If you're a guy who digs women who are more than six years younger, there is still some hope for your cradle-robbing habits. Do you have money? The study found that men can bridge the age gap—they just have to dig into their pockets to do it. On WhatsYourPrice.com, men who wanted to date women more than 10 years younger needed to pay 13 percent more for the date in order to gain female interest (please see the helpful information graphic above). And as the men age, that number only increases—a man who has 40 years on a woman will have to pay 400 percent more to attract her.

I was a virgin when I married at 19 and turned 30 as I divorced.

One word comes to mind, Marina.

Creepy.

Dating a guy 30+ years older than me would just be creepy.

Shy, I learned SO MUCH about business from him, and he was SUCH a phenomenal lover - still one of the best of my life.

I don't really see romantic relationships as business deals, so what I could learn from a man doesn't matter to me. I've been with plenty of guys who were good in bed. Older guys don't have the market cornered on that.

I'll stick to men my own age since I actually want to be attracted to a guy I sleep with.
