Dating an older man
Gay guy here.
I'm dating a man who's old enough to be my father. We've been going out for a month now and everything about this relationship is amazing. We have brunch together on Sundays, the sex is wonderful, and he isn't weirded out when I call him "daddy" in bed.
The problem? There have been a couple of times when, while hanging out with my actual father, I've had to stop myself from doing or saying something inappropriate because I've forgotten who I was with. This week at lunch, I casually called my dad "Babe" when I asked him to pass the salt. He didn't say anything, but he gave me a funny look.
Dad and the bf haven't met each other yet, but as they are roughly the same age and have a similar general appearance, I'm starting to become nervous at the prospect.
On a scale of 1-10, how fucked up is this?

This is clearly designed by some basement dweller to incite an outraged response. My significant other, of over six years, is thirty years younger than I, and to my knowledge he's never had a problem distinguishing between is dad and me.

I can't wait for the follow-ups when dad and "daddy" meet. OP--can you work a nephew into the plot?

Pretty sure this thread will be judged on a different 1-10 scale, OP.

Seriously, guys? Can I get *one* serious response? Yes, I will admit I have some "daddy issues," but I am not a troll.

No, not with a post like that. Even if you're not a troll, what do you want us to say?

Sorry, OP. I just don't buy it that you confuse your lover and your father because they are the same age.

Make "daddy" shave his head. If he's otally bald he will look nothing like your dad.

He was just about to climax in my mouth when I looked up gratefully, only to realize that I had mistakenly slipped my father's cock into my mouth instead of my boyfriend's! I was so embarrassed by my mistake, I almost took it out!

OP what about the smell, don't old guys smell?

OP, assuming this is for real, unless your father is expecting #1 a man and #2 a man fully his age, this can't go any way but very poorly.

R16: Fortunately, Dad was reading a large book, so when he looked down to see who was blowing him and slurping his warm, ropey cum, he didn't realize it was me, his son.
Boy, that was close!

I believe the OP. I'm in a long term relationship with a man 20 years older than me and I do it. In my family, we've always gotten names confused. My Dad will call out everyone of my siblings names until he gets the right one. So sometimes I will call out to my partner and call him Dad by accident or say Baby when I talk to my Dad. It's embarrassing but that's it. I wouldn't be worried, OP.

R11 and R17 are not me.
R13, my father knows that I'm gay, but not that I prefer older men. He met my prior bf, but he was my age. They got along famously, and my dad is totally supportive of me and always has been.
My bf does not smell and he is not old. My dad isn't even old. My bf is in his late 40s and my dad is in his early 50s.
Thanks, R19. What's your Dad's reaction when you make slip-ups like that? Is it ever awkward?

Here's a coping strategy: Stop calling your lover "daddy." Problem solved.

Supportive hag here. I believe you, OP! And if a woman is dating a man much older and accidentally calls her own father some nickname, I bet most people would think it was sort of cute (unless her father was annoyed.) I think you wrote a nice, cute post and I'm sorry people on this site are sometimes so jaded (although the "fake posts" were hysterical!)

So, things have become a little odd. Or I could just be making a mountain out of a molehill.
I was out with my dad today and had a slip and called him "Babe" again. He responded by calling me "Sweetie." As in, I dropped my pen and said "Whoops, could you pick that up for me, babe?" And he said "Sure, sweetie."
Completely without sarcasm.
So apparently he thinks it was intentional and that it's a "thing" we do now.

What is screwed up is you, OP, using the word 'babe' - EVER.
'babe' is a revolting word and the usage is revolting - do not call anyone, including your lover, 'babe' - it is a sickening custom

R31/32, do you live in NYC? Because I think we dated.One of my exes literally had a fit when I called him babe one night. His diatribe about the word and basically any term of endearment unleashed all of his self-hating homophobia. That and the fact that he would get mad when people called us boyfriends.

I think it's wonderful. I always had a thing for much older men, now I am one. Don't listen to any of the DL nasty queens on here, you're much better off just going with your own gut feeling so, good luck to you both!!

He sounds like a peach, R34. What was his issue with people calling you "boyfriends"? And what was his rationale for being so opposed to terms of endearment?

OP, I think your eldergay romance will only lead your parents to allow you may be a money grubbing floozy. Many elderstraight men have girl friends and or wives young enough to be their daughter. Most of these females in this situation are in it as an "investment" even when they really care for the elderstraight.
If your father is comfortable knowing you enjoy stiff cock in your mouth and up your bum too, I doubt meeting one of your eldergay sex partners will be of much more concern.
Hell, you already called your dad, babe. Surely he recognizes a little hooker lingo by now.

OP here with an update.
My dad and boyfriend have now met. I think my dad was thrown off by the age difference at first, but he certainly seems to have gotten over it fast. They have now gone bowling together TWICE without me. It's like some kind of weird bromance or something.
And my dad is still calling me "babe" even though I've been very careful to not do the same thing again.
Part of me wants to just end it with the boyfriend because it's so weird, but part me feels like that would just be "relinquishing" him to my dad, and there's no way in hell I'm gonna do that.

Are you sure your dad isn't gay?

R44, I don't really know. He and my mom were not married for very long and he's never remarried. He's always been what I'd call "a man's man" although he's taken dips in at least a couple of lady ponds that I know of. I would not be shocked at all to learn that he's proficient in playing the skin flute. I just hope he's not doing it with my boyfriend.

OMG OMG OMG
I was in bed with my boyfriend this morning and he told me that he finds both my dad and I very attractive and that he would be up for having a threesome with us. As if that isn't weird enough, he has apparently ALREADY BROACHED THE TOPIC WITH MY DAD. I didn't get a chance to ask how that convo started, because he then informed me that MY DAD IS ON BOARD WITH THE IDEA.
How can I communicate how humiliating it is that my boyfriend has basically whored me out to my own father, who then told my boyfriend that he wants to have sex with me???
I felt I had no choice but to agree to it. I have a feeling my boyfriend will be fucking my dad with or without me.

Why are you dating a daddy when you still live with one?

Really, OP? Maybe a gay uncle would have been more convincing. But, on the off chance that your struggles are real....
Since it's been almost eight hours, let me state the obvious: do not sleep with your father. If he sleeps with your boyfriend, you will recover. If you sleep with them both, that's a guaranteed ticket to a decade or three of therapy.

Oh hell no. I am so doing this. There is no fucking way I'm just going to let my dad have my boyfriend like that. If he wants a threesome, he'll get a threesome. I'll do whatever it takes.

How are things between you and your dad these days, whether the threesome took place or not? Is your dad gay or bi? Do you think your boyfriend and your dad have had sex without you? You have a lot to tell!

Gays discount older men as partners..I don't know why because many older men are quite wealthy, settled down, not into the bar scene. The daddy/son thing is actually quite hot. As a daddy myself, I love having a hot young guy with me both in and out of the bedroom. The issue is this: Most younger gays can't relate to an older gay guy. Many say, "what are we going to talk about after we fuck". This is silly and shows the shallowness of many younger gays. It IS true that "with age comes wisdom". Most of the younger "sons" I have dated have been flighty, undependable, borderline employed, no car, and always looking for something "better" but they were all such great bottoms and the "daddy, fuck me deeper" verbal stuff during sex was so incredibly hot. Most will wind up on the "trash-heap of Life". But, c'est la vie".

Well, there you go: you pretty much answered your own question. Your fallacy is assuming that this description fits most younger gay men in general, which it most certainly does not.

OP- I haven't read any of these responses- none of this is a follow through- I am 53 my BF of three years is 21 I am a couple of years older than his Dad. He calls me "Big Daddy" and his father "Dad". To mess it up a little more I have a son a year younger than my BF.
I am fortunate that his family accepts us just the way we are and we all get along pretty good. His Dad. Thinks fairly ewell of me and his mom and I are really good friends. We all get together sometimes- not as often as any of us would like.
The dynamic of BF Daddy and biological father is sometime an issue for him (my BF))u he has been known to call his Dad "babe" on occassion. It is by anyone elses standard a Ten on the Fuckedupness scale but you learn to live with it.
Some replys will call me a liar and say this is all a big EST or fantasy but its all too real. Let me know if I can advise you on anything specific- that's what Big Daddies are for.

There was a guy who had a serious crush on me a year or two ago. First, he said he was in his 30s, then he confessed that he was in his mid-40s. He was sweet but I had no intention of dating him. But, what really put me off was seeing a picture of his 17-year-old son, who looked exactly like me. Totally grossed me out.
