I remember at one time a 24 years old was acting like they were middle age (And looking middle age too sometime). Now, some of the people I know that are mid 20s call themselves kids still. Does this have something to do with so many of them living at home?

There was an odd phenomenon of men and women just out of college wanting to act like mature, middle-aged adults, like junior versions of their parents. Fortunately, this was a fringe phenomenon. (It was so pretentious!) Knowing what I and my friends were like just out of college, I would tend to consider people of that age "kids". But so much depends on the individual. Some are very mature and are already in a successful career by that age. It's hard to generalize. But psychologists tend to regard the 20's as an extension of adolescence. I think the parameters of adolescence keep expanding, elastically. There was an era when highschool graduates were considered adults. That's history.

That sounds very true.

A bit when I was your age. First thing you want to do is throw out the "older woman" term. She sure as heck doesn't want to hear it. There are pletnty of attractive 40 yo women out there as you found. If you can't look at her as your "Peer" than forget it or just have a fling. She may have more misgivings then you.
Ok cool thanks

I'm 45, my other half is 35, we met when he was 29 and I was 39.

If you want to date her, get to know her first. If you just want sex, look elsewhere unless she tells you that's all she wants from you.

Whatever you do, don't pretend to want to get to know her just to get in her pants. We older, wiser gals see through that every time, and you'll get kicked to the curb--and not too kindly, to boot.

Be genuine and sincere and you can't go wrong.

Moose, just enjoy life, but don't take advantage of people. Go for what you want as long as nobody gets hurt. Be thoughtful. It's pretty simple.

Yes, I think so. And maybe video games too.
