Men, in contrast, are hypothesized to be most attracted to women in their reproductive prime, which tends to be when they are younger. Women’s preferences, on the other hand, hold relatively constant across their lives, not going more than a few years below their own age (extra-credit if you can identify the "cougar zone" in this figure), but women remain keen on men up to 10 years older than themselves. However, younger men (i.e., in their 20’s) tend to be married to someone of a similar age, but as they get older their wives get younger.
You're 50, so that means you can date a woman who is 32.Proverbs 1:8 says, "Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching..." Colossians says, "Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord." If they have said that it's OK, then you move onto the second thing, which is evaluating your motivations. What is it about having one that attracts you to the idea?Do you want a romantic relationship that could lead to marriage? If your reasons for wanting to date are merely for selfish gain or personal happiness, then those are honestly unhealthy motivations.Relationships are not about US; they are about serving someone else.If a girl just wants a boyfriend so she has someone to tell her she's pretty and take her to prom, that's a selfish reason.
