I don't know if it's just the women on this site or also women in real life but to me it seems virtually every women dislikes or won't date a guy younger. Are my options limited specifically because of my age?
Because they're taught from a young age that boys their age are stupid, smelly and immature, and older guys are smart, can teach them things, are experienced and can take care of them. In reality, a guy is just who he is. Idiots will always be idiots, real men will always be real men, age has no bearing on that.
Many women have their personal opinions and failed experiences with younger men. Despite what you may like. The majority of younger men would not want to date older women for there personal reasons or their selfish reasons. A lot of times I find out that it has to do with youth, maturity, illness, low libido if possible/menopause, experience, already have kids, etc. So before you go looking at the women, you need to ask this question to guys as to why younger men are less inclined to date older women. Then come back to ask this question.
I'm gonna be completely honest,, I don't really like dating younger men. It is probably a mental block at this point, but I'll take his advances less seriously.
I have seen way too many young guys just try to chase the puss puss so it doesn't look like many are interested in a serious LTR. Many young ladies are no different, I'd agree. But I'm not dating women.
I'm not completely against it, but definitely less likely the more years he is younger. The youngest I'd date is 22 though. Maybe 21 if he was awesome and mature and ready for a bitch like me haha.
In this situation, "most women" does fit the circumstances. Maturity is one of the largest reasons we don't often set our sights on younger men. We remember what boys were like at *that* age growing up and desire a man that has moved beyond that mentality or even further. There are exceptions here or there of course but they are too few and far in between.
Depending on how much older the girl is, she's probably ready for the next stage of her life, while typically a younger guy is likely not and probably won't be for many years to come. It's a big risk for her because your lives sooner or later are going to start moving forward but probably not in the same direction. Then all this time and feelings are spent on a relationship that's not going to go anywhere.
One of the most common phrases I've heard regarding this issue is "girls mature quickly, but boys will be men (maturity-wise) only after they turn 20 something"and then some people (normally women) just say "boys never really grow up" This preconception, sometimes turns out to be wrong, and others it turns out to be right. Maybe due to the classic social conventionthat dictates that women should search for a man who protects them, one could arrive to the conclusion that older, more "mature" guys are a better choice. Especially because it promises a more stable relationship and blah blah blah. Being a girl on her late teens, I can tell you this thing: the girls who like older guys are usually (but not always) attracted to men who look like they have more control over their lives and who will soon be working and living independently. It makes these girls feel even better if some one so fantastic pays them attention. They even feel more mature themselves, thus more attractive.
Still. It's a thing of taste. Some like 'em mature, others like the childish tipe, and even some of us feel attracted to guys who could be our dads.
It's normal but it isn't the norm. And well, in a couple of years you'll be older... so you can test it out yourself!
Because I feel like guys my age are immature enough... so turning around and being in a relationship with one that's even younger than me just sounds terrible. Plus since I'm 20 there's only so much younger I could go anyway, even if I wanted to. (Side note before all the blue downvotes come in, I know girls can be immature too)
I couldn't do it if I was to do it the youngest I would date would be someone a year younger. Whenever someone younger try's to ask me out I'm just like "awe your just a baby" however not all girls are like that don't give up.
Honestly, I'm more hesitatant because I look younger than I am so he would assume I'm his age then would be shocked to find out that I'm older and I would feel embarrassed / ashamed / not worthy. However, there is also the issue of being at different stages of your life... I've finished uni and have been working for a few years now so if it was a guy who was still at uni or living like a student I wouldn't be interested as I would feel he would be too young for me in terms of wants, needs etc. And obviously if he looks younger then it's a no. lol
I'll be 20 next month, I would date someone a year younger, but not more than that.
Guys my age tend to be immature, but even younger, equals even more immature. I've also noticed that guys around my age and younger prioritize sex and socializing above a meaningful relationship. They'll become infatuated with a girl, decide they wanna be with her SO BAD, get bored pretty fast because the excitement is gone and some other attractive girl comes along and they'll either cheat or break up to go fuck the new girl. I've seen it happen a lot, it hasn't happened to me but I've experienced something similar. I've had guys who break up with their girlfriends of 6 months or more because they met me last Tuesday and are so totally in love with me or want to fuck me.
Older guys cheat or do stupid shit too because hey all humans are well human, but it's more common with young guys. In my experience, teenage boys are worse than teenage girls.
