What's it like to date and sleep with a man more than 20 years your senior? Have you ever dated an older man? Woman A: Many times, yes!
Lady Kitty Spencer, the year-old niece of Diana, Princess of Wales, has been seen strolling through the streets of New York with her arm draped around the shoulder of her year-old boyfriend, fashion millionaire Michael Lewis.

We don't want to go to your friend's rave. It's not like a guy who's five years older than you is going to be taking you out for the Denny's early bird special ever day before promptly going to bed, but odds are those 5 a. Maybe just one shot of whiskey instead of seven of vodka.
