Should I approach a girl I like even if she is much younger than me? I am 38, she is 24.

Sometimes I am on my way to work. I see a pretty girl and i want to approach her. Then If she appears to be in her early 20s i just don't do it. What do you guys think?

  • I'd just go for it. I'm 24 and I have gone out with a 38 yr old this past year. I can't promise a few women wouldn't be put off, but it's far less creepy than if a 48 yr old approached. You're at least right on that border of being a generation older. A 48 yr old could for sure be my dad lol

    Also, looks can be deceiving. I frequently get mistaken for being in high school or fresh out (unless I'm done up and out on the town) and I surprise people when they find out I'm older. You may think these girls are early 20's and they may be older.

    • Thank you for this insight... i will just be respectable and fun and see where it goes.. i have been told that i don't give a creepy vibe.

  • Age is merely a number. She is of legal age.

  • It depends how old you look and how much you have to offer a 24 year old that would make you more attractive to her than guys her age. Do you look 38 or do you look younger than her or close to her age?

    • I simply look my age... but i am in good shape

    • being in good shape helps but your chances are low. Try if you want.

  • Of course you can approac. There's no law stating you can't or shouldn't try...

    I don't like older men, but some women do...

    You won't know which one she is until you ask her out.

    • Thanks for your insight!

  • It really depends on the girl. Some girls (as you can see below) would be all for it. As for me, I usually wouldn't date a guy who is over five years older than me. I look really young for my age (I'm 22 and I could EASILY pass by for a HS student) and I question the motives of older men to start to become too "friendly" with me. It also depends on the relationship with this girl. If she is a student of yours or if she works for you, then DO NOT approach her.

    • I haven't seen a 52 year old that attracted me. But when I was 32 I was infatuated with a 45 year old. But she didn't accept my advances.

    • well then i guess as you say you can try ad mage you'll attract her mane you went. but there's no harm in trying.

      sorry about the rejection. ;)

  • Older men/younger women is more common actually. 38 isn't old, you're at a very great age for a man. Men are more sexy in their 30s-40s or at least from what I have noticed. I say you should go for it, a 12 year age difference shouldn't stop you. Life is short!

    • i will definitely follow your advice! I don't think of young girls as immature nor do i actually have an intention to control them. People complete each other. So you could bring so much experience to somebody's life weather he is younger or older than you. I wish you get the man of yr dreams !

    • Thanks! likewise!😊

    • This is not true, people judge no matter what age gap it is. Some people however once they reach a certain age careless/ or not at all about what others say about their lifestyle choices. But I agree with you and the others that he should go for it.

  • of course u should.! age is not a factor though.
    we never know.. maybe that girl likes u even more..^^

  • Why not! I'm 25 and dating a 39 yr old. We locked eyes on our way to class ( he was taking some executive course) and that was that. He approached me and we went out for dinner. I had no idea he was 39, since he has such a young soul and I have an old soul.. it works... Give it a try if she's not into older guys you'll get that vibe from her.

What Guys Said 29

  • I think she's an adult and you shouldn't let her age keep you from giving her a chance. The worst that can happen is she isn't mature enough for a relationship with you, and that's a pretty positive reason to break things off.

  • What have you got to lose? If she says no, then you can move on with your life.

    If she says yes, then you can move on with your life in happiness.

    Either way, you need to move on with your life!

  • women usually like older men, but recently i come across 1 girl who said im too old for her and she was 20 and im 28. in my opinion 10years max. but its different for everyone. usually if its more then 10 years money or experience/ security comes into place/reason or they just like really mature men

    • She'll be 36, which is not that young. It will seem like a lot less of a difference then.

  • Yes, but flirt gently and read her.

    Contrary to what a few say I'm going to suggest a minority of young women are interested in men who are 15 years older. But it's a significant minority. So go in soft and see if she seems interested.

    • LOL, when I first saw your comment I thought it said "read to her", and I was thinking it that is the case then she is WAY too young.

  • I normally work on a minimum age of (1/2 + 7), which in your case would be 26.
    24 is close enough.
    If you're in good physical condition, your chances are good. Just check out her body language and eye contact (make sure yours is right too) to evaluate if she's open to being approached.
