How old is too old?

I watched Gol & Gincu The Series on boxing day and the topic was dating older man. Oh my god this geek watched drama!!! This geek was testing out Hypp.TV bah, and the drama was on. Plus I happen to like the movie, plus I like to look at the chicks in it hehehe.

Anyway, in that particular drama, this girl was dating someone, and she introduce him to her parents, and they rejected him. Why? I didn’t why know until the part came where she introduced him to her best friend on their double date. He was older, not sure by how many years, but from the looks of it, WAY older. I must admit, that story did hit me a bit. I was offended by it. Was it that bad? I mean really bad? I used to dated someone, we were 8 years apart; we got engaged, nearly got married. And my course mate over in Johor Bahru married to his wife, 10 years apart even. But with my case, even though we are 8 years apart, when we were together we looked like 4 years apart. Looking younger that your age does have its advantages. On a normal day, those pesky sales person next to a particular shop wont even bother to approached you to sell stuff because they think I’m just a mere student. At times, when buying a movie ticket, the nice young lady would ask me “Student card?” and with a blank face would answer “Don’t have one.”.

Anyway, I guess it depends on the situation itself. If I was 20 years old dating a 12 year old girl, that would be totally wrong man! REALLY WRONG! But if she’s 19 and I’m 27, what’s wrong with that? What if I’m say… 35 and I’m dating a 20 year old girl. Would that be considered wrong too? Not that I’m seeing one, it’s just an example. Okay? I guess in general people would think that older man would want just one thing only and one thing only which is sex. But then again, all man does! In that drama I think the girl’s parents was worried about that. Can’t blame them actually, they just doing what all parents do, worrying.

So what do you guys think? This post I dedicate to a late 30’s friend of mine who wants to settle down, I pray that you’ll find someone this year and settle down.

 

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.

    oh on my personal opinion, i am not against the idea of opting someone WAY older as a spouse. there’s nothing wrong with that. it’s just the community’s opinion and perception and that can go down the drain. we lead our own life, no? so why must bother with other people say? 😉

    I think it should be up to the couple. If they are comfortable with it, why not? It is only wrong when one of them is under age. I don’t know what is considered under age in Malaysia but usually it is 17 years old or less. If both of them are adults, and they can think for themselves, they know they both can overcome everything, go ahead.

    i do think its up to the both of them, if they’re happy w it, then they should continue w it.

    they should live for themself,for what that makes them happy,

    life is too short, to live out for everyone else…

    how old is too old? for me if the man/woman is old enough to be your parents then that’s it. I’m talking about serious case of pedophile here guys. I dont believe that love has anything to do with it. Just imagine having a husband that born only a year or two apart from your parents. Weird…
