WH was 42,the two AP's were 39 and 23. The 3 girls he tried to start something with were all about 21-22. I was 38..had turned 38 2 days before dday#1.
Because WH was active on craigslist,I spent alot of time looking through the casual encounters section..looking for WH..but also looking to see just *what* he was looking at. Over the last 3 years,I've averaged about a once a week visit to CL, just checking and making sure I don't see my WH(so far,so good ). There are more men who advertise in that section,and the men are of all ages..from 18-80. But the average age of the girls who advertise on CL(at least in my area) is about 22-24 years old.

when affair started OW was 23 in her last year of university, and WH was 42. I was 39. I believe young girls are easily manipulated by older men and believe the crap they are told.

I think it's more of a character thing than an age thing.
When I was in my 20's I was propositioned constantly by MM and I always said no. Of course, I was also M at the time, but even before that I would never mess around with anyone who was in a relationship. Wasn't even tempted, because I knew it was wrong.
The people who engage in A's are generally selfish and shallow. They don't think beyond how it makes them feel. They don't consider anyone else. Unfortunately it seems that there are more and more of those people in the world now. I think we have a strength of character problem, not an age problem.
One should rather die than be betrayed. There is no deceit in death. It delivers precisely what it has promised. Betrayal, though ... betrayal is the willful slaughter of hope. ~Steven Deitz

The age of mow has bothered me a lot. Well everything about her and what they did bothers me. I do see that it was just opportunity on wh part. Sad but true. When wh had EA with mow he was 30 she was 43. I was 31. When wh began again and had PA with the same mow he was 32 she was 45. I was 33. Its about character, liars and cheaters in my opinion have none. Just as many "older" women seeking affairs as "younger" women. What they have in common? They are fucked up....
Together 20yrs married 17yrs
2 kids, now 18 & 15
Bw: now 37
Wh: now 36
Mow: now 49
1st D-day EA w/mow our realtor 4-?-2007, 2nd D-day PA w/ same mow 5-29-2010

WSO's affair was on/off over a 4+ year span.
When the affair first began:
MOW gets separated: 34
OW divorced: 35
I was 53 when the affair began, and approaching 58 when it ended.
Right after D-Day #1, WSO grappled with OW's age difference by 1 or 2 years- I knew regardless, we were talking about a 22 year age difference. WSO said that he talked with OW about their age difference as a concern. Now, I think he believes it was a way for him to discourage OW's plans of the affair becoming a real and public relationship.
The age difference was/is a concern AND the whole 4+ years should have been the biggest concern.

First OW was my best friend, we were all the same age... 30.
2nd OW was 2mos later, she was 22.
There was one I know of at least that was in her 40s.
Age didn't seem to matter to him, and as he dove further and further into his addiction, weight, hair color, beauty lost their value too. (All things that use to be VERY important to him.) He used to have "a type": thin, brunette, attractive..... all three of last years OW were blonde, 2 were overweight, all were disgusting looking.
At least it finally helped me come to terms with it wasn't me. The 22yr old really rocked my self esteem. She was very pretty, young, fit. His ex-W (another of the MOW) had a boob job (that he bought), so that was another hit to my self-esteem. Last year's OW left nothing to be envious of. Nothing. I finally realized I could've been a 20yr old Angelina Jolie, and he'd still have cheated.

My exH was 33 and she was 24 (?). I am soon to be 29
Once a cheater, always a cheater happens when your cheater doesn't have remorse.
Regret is not remorse- know the difference!

XH's main OW was 27, he & I were 39.
XH had affair w/my former friend, he was 37, she was 35, hideous and a lesbian.
All of the other ones, I have no clue. Suspicious that XH may have had A's w/former friends, just not sure. The only common denominator amongst all of them is that they are all mentally fucked.
Some are stupid, some are smart, but they are all incredibly needy and selfish, just like XH.
Me: MH 40s; Him: MH 40s (I had RA)
OW: 30s, moron; one of many
M: 8 yrs
Everything is as it should be.
