Is age really just a number? Romance

    I am not new to the online dating scene. In fact, I prefer to do my "dating" online, (it gives me a basic sketch of the person without having to waste 10-15 minutes in a bar just to find out we aren't really compatible). In recent years I've found myself more attracted to older men, 10, 20, even 30 years older than I. I am not shy about meeting someone for a date and grabbing a coffee or a glass of wine. No matter how great the date is going, the gentleman NEVER FAILS to bring up the age difference between us. In addition, in some social situations my dates and I tend to get "looks" (because I look young and my date looks a bit older). 


    My question would be to men who enjoy dating younger women, do the "looks" bother you? Are you intimidated by approaching younger women; if so, why? I find that a lot of older men seem to be shy about approaching me in social event.
