I was out recently and was sitting next to this couple. One guy kept referring to the other guy as his daddy. In the gay community, a daddy generally means that an older guy is dating a younger boy. Some younger guys might have daddy issues and need the support and security of an older man but for other it is more a question of being attracted to older men.
I recently started dating a guy much younger than myself who doesn’t have daddy issues. Has never called me daddy and has never referred to me as papi. He told me it’s an attraction thing more than anything else, he has dated guys his own age but prefers guys my age, he is 28 and I am 49.
Whatever the reason is, people will always make assumptions when two guys of different ages are together. I told the guy I’m dating that people will look at me and say “what is that old man doing with that young boy”, he looked at me and said people would say “why is that guy dating that hooker”. It’s all how you look at it.
Are you in a daddy/boy relationship? Do you have daddy issues or do you simply prefer the company of older guys? Are you an older guy who only dates younger guys?
