Dating a Younger Girl
 
Hi all, need some advice. So I am in my late 40s and I met a girl in her early 20s through a class. We seem to have been texting quite a bit via FB. I have been keeping the conversations very school related but I can't actually tell if she is interested or we are just school collegues. I am assuming its just school but I cant tell.

I dont want to do anything stupid like ask her out for dinner and get laughed at -- but at the same time, i don't want to miss out on an opportunity to meet someone.

Any tips on what I should be looking out for from a much younger person if she happens to be interested?

Besides this class, what kinds of things do you think you'll have in common with this girl? Do you have children her age?

Have you divorced your wife yet, OP?

No. I dont have kids her age.

I don't know her that well, but so far, I like her taste in music and films thus far.

The only other thing I know is, we do share similar ethnic and cultural background.

Unfortunately, no. And I am sure it will not go over very well if/when I have to spills the beans. But I am not the type of person that is capable of lying to someone I really like.

What are you looking for? Something casual?

The odds of you two being at compatible stages of life are pretty darn low - she is probably living like a young 20 something..... And well, you are old enough to be her father.

But I have heard of girls having things for older men.

Flirt with her, see how she reacts.

if you only knew how miserable the house i come home to is. a constantly pissed off and moody wife. always screaming at me and the kids. i spend my days at work as long as late as possible to offset having to come home to that and get accused of being an absent father.. its just an endless vicious circle and downward spiral that seems to lead to a bottomless pit.

Oh wow I just saw you are MARRIED.

OP - leave this young girl alone. The odds she would find a man twice her age attractive and dating material are slim.

Add that you are married, with children and haven't even started to divorce process..... No woman in her right mind would want anything to do with this.

Why don't you focus on getting your life in order, and forget about chasing this girl.

Is she heavily flirting with you or light flirting?
- Which with you at your age she could assume is safe and you'd understand that you are much older and not a dating option for her.

yeah. thats what i think as well.

btw.. i am not chasing her. its purely school stuff.

RecentChange 10th November 2017 4:28 PM

Okay well you were contemplating chasing her....

Men very often misinterpret friendliness as interest. Believe me as an outgoing female I get it all the time.

Just curious, what kind of class is this?

And yes, if your old age alone doesn't do it, the fact you're married with kids probably will kill any attraction for this young woman.
