    My last serious Australian GF was 19 when we met, I was 40. At the time I had a HQ Holden that my father laid off on me, our standing joke was that the car was older than she was.
    Lovely girl, lasted nearly four years.
    I did have a fling with a local girl before I started visiting Thailand, she was 20 years my junior so I guess I just like em younger than myself.

    I hardly call a 30s to early 40s year old woman "old". And, if they've kept a slim figure they can go on much further than that. I've met Ozzyguy's wife Janice. She is a vivacious, sexy lady and Ash is a lucky man. I've seen photos of some of the other wives and steady girl friends on this forum and they all look like lovely women any man would be proud to have as a partner. That is all that counts. I've heard the nay sayers and bad mouth guys on other forums back home and all I can say is they are jealous fucks. Any man who says he doesn't look at attractive youngish women and wouldn't like a little bit is either a liar or gay... or both.

    I don't think it's changed a lot here in the UK. If anything it's gotten worse thanks to the media! I can see it has changed in NZ where SE Asians make up a large percentage of the population... but outside cities in England (Where Brexit is strongest)... those old cliches you mention are alive and well... though you could add Eastern European girls to SE Asians as well... xenophobia is a badge of honour...

    I honestly don't know what a 40yr old would have in common with a 19yr old..........now I can see why a 40yr old would want to bang a 19yr old 555

    But I was just away with 2 18yr old kids on holiday
    And I will say, I don't think you are getting many 45yr olds that can be as much on the same wavelength in terms of socially with 18yr olds as I am. Music, movies, drinking, relating to them going to university to play sports, etc...
    But they are still so young in so many ways

    I frankly don't think most women and men are on the same wave length at any age. We "might" have similar goals in life: a career, children, and a house to call a home. Oh, and some sex once in a while. Other than that we are as different as chalk and cheese. If you are damn lucky you MIGHT have a few similar interests that keeps you together for a long time, but I don't care who you are, you soon run out of things to talk about. If you took sex out of the picture, I think most of us would be better off sharing a home with another man. Most of us need some guiding interest to keep us focused. It could be anything: making lots of money, something in the creative arts field, or sports. After that you can get bored pretty quickly.

    Of course they are..........but your views on women aren't exactly great so I wouldn't expect you to think you can be on the same wave length
    I have had 2 major relationships in my life and we talk for years and never get bored
    Now...........if you want to talk about other issues, that could be a case 555

    You keep repeating the same old thing that my views of women are not great. And, I keep repeating myself in reply. I love women of all ages and I have many lady friends both young and old, but I have come to understand the lovely creatures. I don't have much in common with heavy drinkers either, but there sure are lots of them. I can't understand why people would smoke or take "recreation" drugs either, but again, there is a lot of people that do. I frankly don't care what people drink, eat, sniff, smoke or do. That is their business, not mine. If I were running things I would make all drugs legal and relatively inexpensive. Just keep it out of the hands of children. Take strychnine or cyanide if you so choose. I don't care. After spending 6 hours in the hospital yesterday I could see the effects of people's life choices.

    I have no idea what your rambling on drinking and drugs has to do with anything

    But, I repeat it, but that is what I see from your writings..........you may want to have sex with women, we know that.........but you don't seem to really like women. That doesn't mean I think you are rude to them or derogatory to them in anyway( I don't think you'd be rude to anyone unprovoked), but I do think you see women as sexual objects and that's all

    The comparison to drinking and taking drugs is just that ... a comparison to what other people enjoy, but not what I enjoy. We choose partners to suit our own interests. We choose friends for the same reason. I've got lots of great male friends that I wouldn't want to live with either. I'm sometimes amazed at why their wives put up with them. For the most part, I think women in general are far more practical than men. They have a list of what is most important to them and they stick with that list. Men tend to be distracted by the first pretty skirt that comes along and shows any interest in him.

    Years ago I read a study that listed all the things that women and men wanted out of a marriage or relationship. Oddly enough, the actual sex act was well down the list for men. I think it ranked about #7 for men, and much lower for women. Near the top of the list for women was stability (money oriented) and a "home". Being "loved" and cared for was also a high priority... just like children and puppies.

    That list would be fairly common among people that aren't sex obsessed

    Yup, and I read another report on a study put forth by a local sports radio program. Married men over the age of 40 preferred watching porn on a computer to making love to their wives. That tells me a bit about relationships.

    I don't know about that study, although I wouldn't dispute it

    But I'd gather to say happily married couples enjoy sex but it's just not the priority you seem to harp on about
    It's an important part of any relationship...........but I'd gather to say most adult males don't need sex as much as you talk about it

    I think it is possible to find women who think the same way you do (Or I do), but they are extremely rare... then again, I could say the same for men.... 55

    Although I can understand the appeal of a young girl under 26 or so, I would still feel a bit uncomfortable being with them. I just find young Thai girls to be a little more immature than their age suggests. For me, 32/33 plus works better. I find I can relate more to them. At present, I see a 39 year old on my trips and we have lots of fun together. And we still have an 18 year age gap. 555.

    If I talk about it, it is only in reply or response to a topic on the subject... like this one. The physical part of sex has always been important to me, but only if the woman is also interested. If she lays there like one of those foam Japanese dolls then further relationship ends. Or, in the case of P4P, it ends as a one night stand. However, for me, having a partner and raising children together was the most important factor in our marriage. I would not have missed that for anything. On a similar tone I see how much little Alice has stolen Dean's heart, and she is not even his birth child. It is beautiful to see.

    I think they find them in Guana

    Just for something different to the norm Iím 34 and my lady is 43. And Iíve got a baby face that people usually say looks around 25ish. So we get stares because of the age gap but usually more of a surprised look than some
    Of the judging glances that would be directed a a man of 50-60 holiding a 20 year olds hand.

    But we are both happy. She isnt neive like the women Iíve dated who were younger and have their heads in the clouds or are addicted to Facebook and selfies. She also has the life experience and mental maturity to not get caught up in silly things that the young girls do, but she also usually acts fun and lively like sheís a much younger woman and is a ball to be with.
    So we are happy and Iíd say to anyone with any sort of age gap issues to forget what the world thinks and go by what you and your lady think. If your happy together then thatís all that matters in the short lives we have. Finding someone who makes you truely happy is so rare grab it while you can and to help with what anyone else thinks.
    People will always find something to complain or whisper about if that the type they are and people like that thereís no pleasuring anyway so f*** em enjoy yourself. The clocks counting down so enjoy your time while it lasts
