Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
I dont think hes some sicko perv, but I AM uncomfortable with the age difference.
So the last few weeks, I notice her texting and talking on the phone to Guy more and more. She and I have discussed sex, safe sex, responsibility and consequences on numerous occasions, and she has confided in me about some of her friends activities; some that she disagrees with.
I start to question her on the nature of their relationship. On that note, I feel she is comfortable talking and being open with me.
Dating means something quite different when you’re in your teens, your twenties and your thirties.
The amount of life experience at each decade is incomparable, which is why dating someone much older or younger than you can, sometimes, be difficult..
To engage with an older guy is to peek inside a different point-of-view on life.
