Recently I'm been approached by a man that's 25 years older than me. I'm 25 and I've always waited to find the right guy that accepts my ways and my way of living my life. I like the guy maybe a little too much. At the same time I'm scared of getting in a relationship with this person because of that huge age gap. Have you ever been in a relationship with someone older? If so, how was your experience? Good, bad, still together? I just want to have an idea of what I'm getting into.
Don't get in a relationship with an older man, stay friends.
When I was 17 I was with a guy that was 22 everything was alright at first. After we made it official he became way to clingy. He would text me till super late and wouldn't leave me alone so I'd turn off my phone. So in the morning I'd have all these text when I woke up. We'd see each other 3 times a week at least. He basically was too clingy for me, I broke up with him he cried and it was done. What really did it for me was that he had no ambition to better himself. I work hard for what I want, I awlays have. I felt like he'd hold me back. Plus he wanted to settle down and I was trying to live life. On the other hand my cousin is with her boyfriend who is 6 years older than her they've been together for about 10 now.
Hey to be honest with u, age difference of more than 5 years starts getting tough and tough, 5 years of age difference is completely normal. Now ur problem is 25 , that means he is 50 and ur 25... Personally i think this is weird , however its ur life, if u think he is the man of ur dreams then go for it. :)
My ex and her bff had relationships with that kind of age gap which ultimately failed. Putting it nicely they were at different points in their respective lives. Not putting it nicely the ex dated her Boss who died during sex and the bff had to take a restraining order out on her 50 year old cousin she had been dating.
I've been in three age gap 'relationships', 12, 22 and 26 years respectively - I'm 25 and all three were in my life this year at some point. None of them worked out. All were only interested in sex or using me to get what they wanted. I really liked two of them. I know age gap relationships can work out, I just got very unlucky in finding guys who literally couldn't care any less about me. I don't think an age gap is a reason not to date but just make it clear to him what you want and that you want to know what he wants because usually they're not interested in anything serious. If you're not either? Great. Just be cautious. Dating older guys can be really fun but I can suck too, so take care of yourself.
Do it. Age is not that big of a deal as long as nothing illegal is going on y'know. The couple with the biggest age gap I personally know has a 17 years age difference. They're married, happy, raising two kids. It's all cool.
When I was 16 I dated a 13 year old, nothing weird, but he was busy all of the time with sports. After we split I dated a 27 year old at 16/17. To me, age iss just a number. They were both really sweet and nice with no weirdness because of age. If you like that person, and you hit it off, don't let age get between you.
I've never been in a relationship but I dated a guy who was 10 years older than me. He is very intelligent and we had great conversations. Older people always have something to share that's why I'm attracted to the older ones.
