Ellipsical

So he's 64? That is a bit much. I don't know if I would cal it "bad" but it's kind of strange and doesn't seem right, truly. You're only young once, and that is a commodity everyone is after. Don't waste it.

That's disgusting. You are young enough to be naive about this, but he is definitely old enough to know what he's doing. He is also more than old enough to be your father.

I'm not naive sweetheart I'm very close to 18 and am starting to take responsibility for my actions and make my own choices. I'm very mature for my age
Report as
well you obviously don't know what you're doing.

That's nice. Don't call me sweetie, because I am currently 19 and I was mature for my age at 17, as well. Everyone on this page is telling you its disgusting, but yeah go ahead and date the pervert.

What do you even have in common, I suggest at least waiting untill your 18, or out of college, or school, to date people 20 years older than you, but 35!

If you do have a lot of things in common, every heard of older friends?

You are so young and there are so many great guys your age or just a little older out there. Don't you want to grow old with your man and have a Dad for your kids who will be around for a long time? Sorry but Gramps needs to go move on.

God I'm not a little naive teenager (average). We have a lot of things in common and no one would really understand. I'm very mature for my age and I don't care about the law we've broken a lot and I really love him and he truly loves me. I've known him for awhile as friends seeing him at concerts (classic rock) or at the movies and we have so much in common just by talking to me he understands and relates to me. I love how wise he is and he loves how mature I am. So please don't judge something you have no clue about thank you!
Report as
So much in common...like a 50 year age difference. Well have fun spending the rest of his life together.

It could be a win/win situation. You could get your Clean and Clear on his senior citizen's discount, and he would have someone to change his Depends.

Okay I'm not sure what clean and clear is but I can tell you think I'm a naive little teeny bobber. I'm very mature and wise for my age and we have a lot in common. I look a little older then I am and he looks a lot younger then he is
Report as
Totally. I believe you and your wise decisions. You obviously are ready to face the world. Just curious, have you ever heard of the phrase "Don't judge a book by its cover."?
Report as
Oh my goodness. I can see your mind is made up already. Good luck introducing him to mom and dad. I would have a defibrillator handy (that's that nifty little machine that they use to restart hearts) but that's just me. To think that the two of you have anything more in common than taste in music is absurd, and shows your naivete, regardless of what you say.

I dated a guy 12 years older than me, and that was a HUGE plenty. But nearly 4 times that much? Wow. (And it turned out that the guy was just looking for a younger version of his wife... who I did not know existed)
Report as
Oh boy, what an @ss..........Yes, maybe this girl will have to learn the hard way, huh?
Report as
Well I apologize if I offended anyone and my parents are divorced I do not talk to my father (I do not have daddy issues). My mother knows but she isn't happy about but thinks because I'm almost 18 I'm legal and can make my own decisions. We have more then music in common I love hearing his opinions and views on things and he loves hearing mine , he is very wise so I love hearing his wisdom and loves that I'm mature and can think for myself. We are having a very healthy relationship. :)
Report as
Why on earth did you post this question then? It sounds like a lot more has gone on than a meeting at a concert. I think you might want to look into why you feel it necessary to draw attention to yourself. Not to be mean, but I suspect daddy issues are at the root of that and of you wanting to basically date your daddy (this ANCIENT geezer). If you make peace with your father chances are you will have much more healthy relationships with men in the future.
Report as
I have always had a healthy relationship with him I just said we don't really talk much anymore that's all. All of friends think its wrong so I wanted to ask older people what they thought. Is it really wrong to be attracted him?

Warning warning. Man is in late 60s, my pedophile alert is ringing. That means back away and if he trys any thing if you end up going out with him call police. If you do anything sexual he can be arrested on charges of statuatory rape, and he may not even care. Unless you want him to stir your sugar in his cofee i suggest you never see this weirdo again.
