    Ok so after divorcing back in 2006 I've only been in a few dating relationships (by my choice) with women close to or at my age.
    For the past few months I've been flirting with a girl at work who's 28 years old and we've recently started hanging out together. We have a lot of fun doing things (yes, that too!) and get along really well together.
    Never thought I'd be "one of those guys" dating someone almost half my age but here I am doing it. Not sure where this will end up but I'm in for the ride as long as it lasts.

    Pros:
    She's young and good looking.
    Has a steady job.
    Fun to be with.

    Cons:
    Recently divorced.
    Has four year old son.
    About 75% liberal.

    So is this a recipe for disaster or does it have a chance to work?

    You're questioning if you should continue on in the relationship.

    If I were you, I would be questioning HER motivation for being in the relationship.

    You come on GT asking if you, a 55 year old should be dating a 28 year old who is recently divorced and has a 4 year old son? Good luck with that.

    First of all, as a 46-years-old man dating a 19-years-old co-ed, I bow to your mastery. I am NOT WORTHY!!!:wow:

    Secondly, don't take things too seriously and it will work out just fine.

    BTW, liberal chicks are freakier, if ya know what I mean.

    Being with an older man who knows how to treat a woman right?

    Being with an older man who knows when to give her space?

    Yeah, it has to be some sort of special "motivations".

    Haterz gonna hate.

    I would relate to it like an E coupon ride at Disney Land - you enjoy it while you're on it, but there's no remorse when it's over.

    After Buster Douglass beat Mike Tyson, he was asked what his strategy was going into the fight.

    "Hit him hard, and often", he replied.

    This is one of the reasons she said she likes to be with me. Says most guys her age are jerks. I still hold doors open for ladies and she thinks it's cute.

    I think the age part is between the two of you.

    The co-worker part can be (and usually is) a growing problem.

    The kid of any age would be a deal breaker for me but probably is OK for many people.

    More like "come to GT and ask for any relationship advice".

    Of course she's HAWT.

    My bad, she's just turned twenty a few weeks back.
