    Definitely ... I think it's a normal hangup that is probably gonna take years, probably even centuries, for people to get past. But that's their problem, right? If the situation were reversed, i.e., older man/younger woman, I guarantee that not many would see a problem. What matters is how he makes you feel, and would you see it working out between the two of you if not for the age difference? It's not age that matters ... it's souls connecting that matters. Just look at couples in the news today ... Sherman Hemsley and Isabel Sanford (George and Louise Jefferson) were almost 21 years apart in age. She was born in 1917, he was born in 1938. They were married on the Jeffersons, and in real life up until Isabel died in 2004. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have been together since 2003, and were married in 2005. Demi is 44, Ashton is 28. Last, but not in the little bit least, Olivia Newton-John and Matt Lattanzi were married around Christmas of 1984, but they had dated and lived together for years before tying the knot. The biggest reason they waited so long to get married was because Olivia had a hangup over being so much older than Matt; she was born in 1948, and he was born in 1959. At the time Olivia was 36, and Matt was 25. Matt persisted, and they have a beautiful 20 year-old - Chloe Rose - to show for it, who has already followed in her father's footsteps as an actress, and is getting ready to follow in her mother's footsteps and launch a singing career. My Mom, who was born in 1937, married my Dad, who was born in 1939. Sure, it's not much of an age gap, but they've been married now for going on 47 years ... and had 6 daughters, 3 grand-daughters, 2 great grand-sons and a great grand-daughter.

    Before you shut the door on a romance - and possible marriage - between yourself and this attorney, just think about these hollywood couples - and the millions of couples who are not as famous, but are in the same situation - and consider what you might be giving up. If you decide to turn your back on the relationship, please do it because you aren't compatible where it really counts, or because you find you don't love him ... or even because of cheating. If you break up for any other reason, it would be a crying shame.

    Age is just a number. If you two are on the same mentality level, then go for it. Most 56 year old men can't keep up the sex life like a 33 year old can. And Marriage? If the feelings are mutual, don't for a second let age get in the way.

    Don't worry you are not the only one. Age is just a number don't let it bother you that you are older. If you get along fine then he could be the right person to be with in the long run. I took the chance and dated an older guy and now I'm married to him and have two children. Our relationship is as solid as ever. Oh sure we bicker here and there, but we make up afterwards.But if you still think it's not worth it then try again. Good Luck

    I have always had a problem dating younger men..I am now 30 and just recently dated a man a few years younger than myself and was really surprised..It is all about personal preference, but I will be damned if age kept me from being happy..I say that if you are over the age of 30 and you are not breaking any laws..go fot it!!! Be happy!

    Go for it, women! It's not your fault that he is younger than you. All you need is to trust him. Anyway, a majority of men nowadays think its cool to get married to an older lady. Look I'm only 12 but Iknow these things. My mum got married to a younger man and it was perfect and I came into the world perfect too! Dont be let down by age!

    ideally, i love courting women folk who're my age or somewhat youthful. for sure, i become engaged to a outstanding woman who become about a three hundred and sixty 5 days and a nil.5 older than me. Age isn't that a lot of an concern, till the version is more effective than 5 years or so. it truly is the nature and how she gazes into my eyes that extremely makes a distinction to me. desire that helps.

    Yes....it's your hangup, but we all come with hangups. Age really IS just a number, but if you're uncomfortable with it, then it's not good for you, no matter how he feels about it.

    I'd give it some more time and see if your feelings about the age difference change. After a while, you may not notice it at all. He sounds wonderful!

    Eventually it will matter, in about 5 years, when he realizes he wants a wife and children. But right now, he's getting free sex from a woman who probably acts grateful for male attention. Is an unattractive man 23 years your junior the best you can do?

    Age is just a number! You must be a pretty hot 56 year old! Do what makes you happy, if he doesnt mind then nothing else matters!

    I say go for it, don't let it bother you. But keep in mind that it may not last forever because of the age thing. He might decide he wants children one day.
