Is it weird for a 28-year-old woman to be interested in a 21-year-old man?

I have a new neighbor that moved in a couple of months ago. He is really nice and we get along great. He has a lot of qualities that I like. I also find that he is very mature for his age. He is driven, responsible, family oriented and very smart. Carrying on a conversation with him feels as though you've known him for years. I really like him and he flirts with me often; but I haven't flirted back because of the age gap. I really like him and wish I could flirt back, but I'm not sure if I should. What do you think?

What Guys Said 28

  • Not a bit. Let the cougaring begin!! We all love that firm young flesh.

    Seriously, go for it. The age difference is immaterial.

  • Why do you care what other people thinks? Do YOU like him? If you do, then go for it ! He's an adult and you are one too, so stop acting like a girl asking her father for permission and go for it.

  • As a 19 year old young soldier on a night out , & I think the confidence of just passing the infamous P Company ( British Army Paratroop course ) shone through , I met a single 33 yr old lady that wasted no time dragging me back to her place !! I say go for it , he will appreciate you big time

  • Society may be against it, but I don't think it's weird. I frequently date older women and they are obviously much more maturer and understanding than most girls around my age... I'd say go for this guy!

  • I was 18 and had something going with a 25 year old.. that came with A LOT of doubts and worries because of the age even though I was probably more mature than her. 21 year old guy and a 28 year old woman is absolutely no problem. Age is a really silly thing to lose what could be a great relationship over. Go for it, and don't regret it :) It's not how old you are, but how you are.

  • It is not weird.
    I had that sort of relationship once. I was 21 and she was 28. She was the sweetest and most gentle woman I have known. I should have married her.

  • I think that it's normal, not weird. I've seen bigger gaps (more than 10 years) with the woman being older, two cases in my family. Both relationships worked.

  • I don't think there's anything wrong with that age gap. If you guys have chemistry, or even if you're not sure yet if you do but you want to find out, I think you should feel confident about making a move. I bet he'll feel really flattered.

  • It's not a problem. If you like him, show him that you are interested. Flirt with him; it's okay.

  • After 20 age gaps don't matter all that much, since most people have developed into true adults. 7 years isn't drastic.

  • Not at all. Sounds pretty normal to me.

    It may not be common though since women are usually only into guys the same age or older.

  • I think it's not so important
    You're both adults and if you like the guy go for it
    You don't have anything to lose

What Girls Said 16

  • Um no? You could be 40 and he could be 20 and I would say as long as you both liked each other then go for it!

  • He's a bit young but if you guys connect well and you find yourself attracted to him there's nothing wrong with it. He's a grown up.

  • No it's not weird. 7 year age gap is not much when you are an adult. I dated a 26 year old when I was 19. Guys do it all the time, nothing wrong with a woman being interested in someone younger. A lot of women prefer older or around the same age as them but is certainly not weird.

  • I dont think thats a big age difference. If it was a guy seven years older than a girl, people wouldn't make such a big deal out of it.

    But you are overthinking it. If you really like him, go for it. It's more than fine...

  • Well, it's only 7 years. And he's an adult. So I say if that's what you wanna do then go for it.
