How comfortable would you be dating a girl that is older than you?
What are your limits?
Is a one or two year ahead of you any deal at all or is it just a womans paranoia?

This is an interesting question. It seems to be more common to date a girl who is younger than yourself.
For this I have the calculation: divide you own age by 2 and sum up 6 and this is the minimum age of your girlfriend you date. Why: because when you are 12, this is the right age. After 12, girls do get more mature earlier than boys. And when boys are 18, the girlfriend should be minimum of 18/2 + 6 = 15. Which is okay. When a man is 24, a girl should be minimum of 18. Which I think is okay. This calculation work when you think of it.
When the girl is older than the boy, this calculation can also be of great help. For boys older than 24, girls from 18 years or older are okay. Why? Because they are on the same level of maturity. After this the difference will be more or less insignificant. So in theory, after the boy is 24 the girl can be older. But that's where the practical thing comes in: boys prefer to have a younger girl because the future of children is a little bit further away. So when the girl is 3 or 4 years older it will become less logic for the man to choose the older girl. Saying that: I have had 2 girls which were older than I was. I was 3 years younger. In the end we split up because one of them was much more successful. And the other did not mix very well with my friends. So in the end it was not age what matters.
The conclusion of this all. A max of 4 years. Don't tell about your desire to have children. And don't tell him if you are more successful.1
