Love, when it comes to dudes, really does know no limits — and it really is just a number. Except, of course, for one teensy, tiny exception (that you actually won't believe). Guys get open about age with us in this week's "What Guys Really Think ..."
Dear Dr. Romance: I was wondering if in any of your books or articles you discuss about why men in their mid 40s-50s might be attracted to 20ish girls. I kind of know the obvious reasons, but being more curious about what that might mean maturity wise etc. Dear Reader:
I have been a consistent member of the "Cougar Club" since my husband passed away. For the past 4 ½ years, I've been dating a man 15 years my junior. Given my experience, I'd like to debunk cougar myths and paint a more realistic picture of what dating a younger man is like.

Have you ever wondered if it would be worth it to be involved in an intercultural relationship? Has it ever fleeted through your mind and, without much consideration, you quickly dismissed with a “no,” not really giving much thought as to why? Have you been involved in an intercultural relationship, and concluded when it ended, that it was because of the cultural differences and doomed from the start? It could have even been the excuse you or your partner used to end it. Maybe you’re contemplating that excuse right now.
Dear Dr. Romance: Ok so I am 19 and am kinda falling for a guy who is 20 years old than me. I am not asking your opinion on if it's wrong and nor do I want to hear "that's disgusting" my mother and father were 23 years apart in age. I like older guys cause I can relate to them better than guys my own age. Guys my own age don't really act mature enough or just don't have the personality I like. My problem is that my mother doesn't like the guy most of my family doesn't to be honest.
Amid rumors that Ashton Kutcher, 33, and Demi Moore, 48, have split after six years of marriage, May-December relationships still keep everyone guessing: Who chose whom? And how long will it last once buttocks sag and double chins set in? Anneli Rufus finds 15 statistics on couples far apart in age, from mortality risks to gay men's preference for older partners.
Dating and mating a man who's at least a decade your junior may sound like the ultimate ego boost—and it is, at least in the beginning. Yet as experienced Cougars will tell you, that's only a small part of a complex equation.
Gross. Gross, gross, gross. Rumors are swirling that Ryan Phillippe and Demi Lovato have been secretly dating now for a few months. Ryan, 36, is twice Demi's age—quick math—aaaaand she's 18. Perez Hilton and E! News say that things have gotten pretty hot and heavy between the two recently, but that the relationship kind of started cooling down after Ryan's ex-girlfriend gave birth to his baby girl, Kai. Nothing like a little baby-mama drama to hopefully scare an 18-year-old girl into being a single teen again.
I am in my late twenties, but I don’t really look like I am. On average, people will guess that I’m about seven years younger—and yes, I am fully aware that when I turn forty, I will appreciate this and recognize that it’s a good thing. At the moment, however, it can be frustrating. When it comes to dating, the men I meet often assume that I’m younger as well, which means that the ones who take an interest in me stay around the same age, while I get older, year after year. I’m still in the process of deciding how I feel about that.
Today I looked over at my husband and realised how right my world is!! Laying on his stomach across our bed, with his nose stuck in a book, I saw my happiness. We have been married ten years next month and I feel like I have always been married to this man. So many people told me not to marry him...the age difference and all....but I listened to my heart and did what was right for me...and my children! I have six kids and luckily for me they all love Bill...the two youngest call him daddy.
