Okay so I'm talking to a guy 18 years older than me. I'm 18 he's 36. Anyway, most people I talk to say NO!, that's its so big of and age gap. They say I'll miss out on things. LIKE WHAT? What am I going to miss out on? I don't get it! So, with this 18 year difference what would I miss out on?

I think what people are meaning by "You'll miss out on things" is like missing out on being out in the dating world, and getting the chance to just be young and free. I guess they assume that if he is 36, he is most likely looking for someone to settle down with and get married, something serious, and they don't want you to miss out on your young adult life by being married too early or something like that. But I guess if this guy isn't looking for something too serious then go for it. Don't worry about what people say about a big age gap. Age is just a number, they are not the ones that are dating the older person, it's you, it's your life. Just be careful though, that he is not a guy that is just looking to hook up with some younger girls then dump you right away. Good Luck! :)1
