And according to a 2017 study from dating website EliteSingles, 450,000 of their male users between age 20 and 29 preferred dating an older woman . “There was a time when I wanted nothing more than to be in a relationship, but no guys have ever been interested in me. At this point, I don’t think I would know how to be in a relationship.” “I’m 26 and never dated or anything. I envy a lot of those people who are so OK with single life. I fluctuate.”

“Lifelong single here! I never wanted to have kids, which I guess takes an element of stress away from things.”

If you feel the need to respond to what others are saying about your relationship, come together and decide as a unit what the response will be. It doesn’t matter how happy you are, there will always be people out there who are not happy for you and your relationship. The person you are with today is not going to the be the person you are with next year, five years from now, or on your deathbed.

For years, 38-year-old Portia Nathan has avoided the past, hiding behind her busy career as a Princeton University admissions officer and her dependable domestic life. Her reluctance to confront the truth is suddenly overwhelmed by the resurfacing of a life-altering decision, and Portia is faced with an extraordinary test. Just as thousands of the nation’s brightest students await her decision regarding their academic admission, so too must Portia decide whether to make her own ultimate admission. From the New York Times bestselling author of You Should Have Known (adapted as “The Undoing” on HBO) comes another page-turning masterpiece, this time on college admissions—now a major motion picture starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd.

For the boat rentals you can definitely rent your own, I had a friend who recently did it, and it’s in my opinion the best choice as you will set the pace and decide where to go. Thank you so much for this site with lots of very helpful information. I am planning to go with my 6 and half year old to Sardinia in mid July. As time is short, my preference is to stay in one location with easy access to beach and childrens activities such as snorkling and other suitable activities for boys at that age. Clelia Mattana Hey Norbert, sorry for the late reply but I’m only catching up with all the Sardinia comments, too many!!

From stoppingby one of lovely traditional villages to visiting some ancient ruins, Oristano really has it all. The touristy areas are not many and usually they are popular amongst people who travel by caravanas there are several dedicated areas for it. I’m 24 and he’s 19 the BEST freaking relationship I’ve been in. I’ve dated 2, 3 years older than me but it turned out to be hell. This guy has everything I could ask for in a companion.

There is nothing wrong or gross or manipulative about dating a younger man. Most of the time I forget our age difference even exists. I must admit I have been battling my own demons in my head over this very subject. I have always had issue with age gaps and because of the type of person I am I always looked to my parents who are 1year apart. Plus I have a younger brother who is 7 year younger than me, so I was always aware about dating younger would make me meet someone my brothers age.


I am now 48 and in a loving exclusive relationship with a 23yo. For those who would call me a cougar, I remind them that that denotes a predatory instinct, which couldn’t be further from my personality. In fact, this man pursued me, declared his love for me and faith in our future long before I agreed to take him seriously. By then, he was declaring his intentions to friends/family/strangers/anyone who would listen…and he still does. Since things pretty new , I still take it a day at a time, which sometimes frustrates him, but I care about him on a deeper level than I was capable of at 20-something, and don’t want his experience to be a negative one.

With first relationships come first breakups, and those can be painful. It’s important to acknowledge how your child is feeling without trying to pull them out of sadness. Be patient and sensitive, and remember that sometimes just listening is the best thing you can do. If your child’s grades are dropping or they aren’t spending much time with friends anymore, consider limiting how much time is being spent with that special someone. And be frank about sexual health as well. We may use terms like “puppy love” and “crush” to describe teenage romances, but it’s very real to them.

Apart from beaches, we also want to go to the mountains if there are any in the vicinity. I guess we need to leave the East Coast out of the plan , I guess. Can you suggest an Itinerary, suggest places to see and things to do. Please let us know if you have any remarks / recommendations on the above and things that you would do differently.


I thought I had already replied to your question as I remember it very clearly… maybe you already commented on another post about holidays in Sardinia? If not, my reply is to just book 1 hotel either in Cagliari or Quartu Sant Elena , and from there you can take day trips by car to both Villasimius and Chia. Booking 2 hotels will joyclub just be a struggle. Another option is to either book 1 hotel in Villasimius or 1 hotel in Pula/Chia and just enjoy that part of the island. Gerardo Lopez Hola Clelia me and my wife are traveling from Mexico to Sardinia for a week in Sept 4th. My wife love the beaches and we are planning to rent a car and go beach hunting.

After all, I am twenty years older than he is. In your opinion, what do younger men really expect and/or want when contacting an older woman? The youngest guy I have ever been out with is 33.

I’m 22 & stuck in the body of an 8-year-old – only creeps want to date me

In return, I inspired him to think outside the box, softened his edges, and appreciated his giving nature. We traveled together, discussed music, art and film, and supported each other’s careers, just like I would with a partner my own age. We truly celebrated each other for exactly who we were, and that was very special to me. Now there will be times when your girlfriend will worry about the age difference in the relationship. This is normal and it’s what women do, they worry. I don’t have to tell you that the only people who get to decide whether you’re enjoying each other as people are you and your dinner companion.
