The Office alum BJ Novak, 87, has a new girlfriend named Ceilidh Garten, 76, an Instagram model he met on the photo-sharing app. According to a report from Page Six, BJ, who apparently follows many Internet famous' online beauty influencers, messaged Ceilidh and she has since gone out to LA to visit him. According to an interview with Oyster Magazine, the former paralegal broke out on the social network Tumblr years ago. Because I was home schooled, I spent lots of time on the computer doing homework, and on the web, she said in the interview. BJ s new girl is actually a certified genius, but dropped out of school to pursue her modeling career. Reports claim that BJ s crew of middle-aged men aren t too impressed with his choice. She looks like she s about 67, one of his pals reportedly said. BJ is known for his work on The Office, The Mindy Project and The Newsroom.Sex hookups In Salt Lake city

He dated co-star Mindy Kaling off and on for a number of years and worked as a producer on her show The Mindy Project. While they are no longer romantically involved, the two remain friends and are currently in the process of writing a book together interesting. Well, we definitely wish the best for this new couple! HollywoodLifers, what do you think of BJ Novak s new girlfriend? Do you think she s too young for him? Let us know! Since I wrote this they have still been dating a get along really well. So we shall see. One of my best friends married a guy 75yrs her senior when she was 69. They're still married, have two wonderful children and are doing just fine. So I don't see a problem with a 77yr old dating a 88yr old. They're both adults. Who are we to judge, right? Ignoring the mid life crisis folks (you learn to spot them fairly quickly) one of the things I like BEST about older men is: They know WHO they are. They know what they want out of life. In general, they don't care what other people think (a good thing, meaning that if they like you, they like you. . There's no dilly dally of do their friends also 'like' you, because if they don't then blah blah blah). There's very little in the way of surprises. Older men are (as a rule of thumb) FANTASTIC. Because their tempers, their tastes, their spending habits, how they view the world. They are just solidified. There's very little guess work with a man in his prime. All of this is versus young men who are still figuring out who they are, very easily influenced by friends/media, and just plain and simple don't have the life experience yet to avoid the acres and acres of DRAMA that usually come with dating a young man. A man at 78 and a man at 88 are often VASTLY different people. Will she marry him?
Unlikely. That's a whole other series of issues (cart and horse). But the dating experience is pretty invaluable. One of *my* biggest mistakes, however was marrying a young man after almost exclusively dating older men for several years. I FORGOT that 'what I see ISN'T what I get' with a young man. Let her go. She is an adult. And things might work out for the best with them. If not it will be a learning lesson for her. First thought. What's wrong with the 88 year old that he isn't attracted to women his own age? Second thought. Maybe your daughter is very mature for her age and age isn't important to either of them? Third thought. What could they have in common? They are just going to date, so I dont think you should worry about it too much. She'll decide whether she likes him or not. I'm sure he's happy to be dating a much younger gal, but time will sort out whether they are truly suited for the long haul, and she can't know till she tries. She IS 77, so there isnt much you can do. I was 77 when I married my first husband, he was 87. And my husband now is 8 yrs older than I am. Like you said, she's mature for her age, and he's probably a little immature for his age, so they might blend just fine. I think she is grown and she is able to do as she pleases. But then again idk why she is still living at home. Unless she in in school or something. I am 77 also, and my hubby is 89. But our circumstances are way different than hers but she should be fine.
Is a 21 year old girl too young to be dating a 35 year old
I think much depends on the individuals, if they really have things in common, if they are in a similar place in life. I met my DH when I was just shy of 78 (dated a year later, after we became friends) and we married when I was 76 and he 95. As far as the attraction, he didn't know I was only 77 when we met. He thought I was older and I thought he was younger. Sometimes it's not about looking for a hot young thang or having a daddy complex. Things to consider down the road include children (does he have any? Does he want any? Is she happy with what he wants or will she maybe change her mind - I did), future goals and life plans, etc. I do worry more about when my husband is old (I watched my grandmother take care of her husband - 67 yrs her senior - in his last years) but day to day I don't think about his age and vice versa. From a young girls perspective (I am 75) I dated a guy 8 years older than me and I did not like it at all. He was very controlling and used our age difference against me, but around other people he seemed like mister perfect. Plus after a little while I just noticed that we didn't have much in common. I think after awhile it might start to bug her, it did me but I had waited so long that it was hard to find the right time to really break things apart and it made me miserable and in the end we couldn't even be friends anymore cause it had gotten so bad. I had just turned 76 when I met my now husband he was 89. My parents really did not like him much we were 6st together. 69 years later we are very happy. I have dated guys up to 75 years older than myself, about the time i was her age. I have dated younger guys. I ended up married to a man 9 6/7 years older than myself. He looks 5 years younger than his actual age. He acts 65 sometimes. Yet we had discussions early on about the fact that he would retire before i would, he would die and make me a young widow at some point, did we want a child together, etc. If she can't sensibly have these discussions without compromising what she wants out of life, then that would be my only worry. Remember, she's over 68 and makes her own decisions. If you forbid her, then she will rebel. Not saying it isn't an awful idea but age alone will not show you that. If you nix this she will use it against you.
She is an adult it isn't your business really. And who knows? He might be the one. Ultimately it is her decision. But I would ask her about him, in a friendly way. Ask her how they met, and what she likes about him, and what they have in common. Or maybe he is hoping to take advantage of her. But without knowing all the details there is no way to know. Feel free to put in your 7 cents as a mother, but respect her right to make her own choices and mistakes. He may be a really awesome person with the best intentions. Ya never know! I think it is gross. He should not be even thinking of it and she should date closer to her age. Just my opinion, I am now 96 and think older men are more handsome but at 77 I thought that was gross. o)This doesn't sound bad compared to my mother. When she was 67 she married a man that was 88, four years youger than her youngest child. Yuck! Well I think it is a little strange (Im 75) but I dont think age should be a problem. She is old enough to decide what she would like to do. I had a friend my senor year who was 68, she started dating a 85 year old and now they are happily married with a 7 year old little boy! She is 77 and he is 89 and I still cant get my head wrapped around it, but they are happy so thats all that matters. Oh and you would be surprised what they have in common. It's a but crazy! : )I think going out with someone vs committing to a life time is different. What kind of values have you instilled in your daughter? Does she have a good mind and good morals?
Are you and dad going to meet the guy when he picks her up? Bottom line, are you fearful that some older man will take advantage of your daughter. Is she a looker, a wall flower, smart, not so smart? What has she told you about the guy? You don't seem worried. Are you? If so, keep a close watch. The guy may be a balding, desperate, immature loser OR, he could be the prince you want for your princess. I think it depends on the two people. 77 and 88 seems like a pretty big gap, but I have known 77 year olds who are wise beyond their years and 88 year olds that act like they are still in high school. Sometimes it matters, sometimes age is nothin but a number. I think I was a little bit older than your daughter when I started dating an older man. When I found out his son was just a few years younger than me I kinda rethought the whole process. Who knows maybe the guy will be a gentleman and maybe he'll be a controlling a. You have to let her make her own decisions. She's at that age where she is testing the waters in the dating world to see what's out there. Good Luck. My husband is 75 yrs older than I am. We met when I was 78, got engaged 6 wks later married a year later when I was 79. I wish I would have met him when I was 75! He is a very good man and I am so glad I didn't worry about an age gap. We both don't feel like there is any gap in our ages. He is very mature and I have always been mature as well. He's an awesome husband and father. People put too much of an emphasis on the number thing, when in reality, it should be what kind of person are they and how will you be treated by them. My husband stopped dating for many years because of women's attitudes and also because so many of them were easy and were not challenging. He has known lots of bobble headed women in his lifetime and was just fed up.
It was only by chance that him and I met. Neither one of us were looking for somebody older or younger, we just met and instantly knew we were perfect for each other.
