I have always dated guys older than me, I just seem to prefer men that way. I'm quite mature for my age and have always found the conversation a lot more satisfying with older men, as well as them being more experienced with dating and women.
Despite this, I still want to be friendly with people my age but it seems I get looked down upon for my choice in men and I'm not sure why this is. I don't want to say it is jealousy and sound arrogant but this is a possibility, anyone care to shead some light?
To clarify, I'm talking between 2-4 years older. I have been with older than that before, but that was a one off.
How much older, is the question. At your age there's probably not very much room... So much changes from 18-23, and even 17-18 is a different place (more concerned with graduating HS and getting in to college or starting a career), not to mention the legal aspect of it. So if you're dating guys a year or two older, that's probably about normal. Not sure why you'd be looked down upon by people your age, unless it's that they feel uncomfortable around these "older" people, or they like you and are jealous that you're with another guy that's older (which makes it that much harder for them to win you over in their eyes)
If these guys you're dating are 18+, then I think they're probably justified in looking down at the relationship and your choice in men. If you're messing around with guys in college (or older, who knows), you may FEEL like you're at their level of maturity, but you really aren't. Guys at that age are most likely looking for something different from the relationship than you are and you may end up getting hurt.
You overestimate yourself, not likely to be any more mature then guys of your age, and most of the time dating an older guy comes out of dependents and not out of strength, in the end it's mainly the older guys who profiting far more from it, it's very likely that people your age thinks that you are too full of yourself, and try to prove something by never dating guys your age.
I saw your xper level is low so I'm guessing your new.
Welcome to gag! Just a warning there is a lot of creeps on here they track people back down to there FB and harass them and save their pictures. Also guys take advantage of girls so since they are older they know how to manipulate better. Over all I don't think there is anything wrong to it. I would date a older guy.
It depends how old you're talking. I don't think it's jealousy, it's just that a lot of people have the idea that men who date younger women do it for the wrong reasons, which is true in many cases.
I'm not a guy, I just wanted to say I also kind of go for guys older than me. They're usually only 2-3 MAYBE 4 years older though, which isn't a terribly large age difference. I don't really think it's a big deal, but if the age difference is a big deal, it's better when both of you are out of high school.
