It's always like a sixteen year old guy wanting to date a twelve year old girl and I don't get why. So guys why do you like dating girls that are five years younger than you it's disgusting. Also why is it always where the guy is way older than the girl? You never see an 18 year old girl with a fifteen year old guy why not?

The biggest reason is emotional maturity. On average (which means, yes, there are a few exceptions), guys are about 2-3 years behind girls in emotional maturity in their teens and 20s. That means, if you are 15, and you date a guy who is 17-18, you are probably about equal in emotional maturity. And being on the same level of emotional maturity is far more important than being the same chronological age.
Another thing is that older guys tend to have more resources, and since guys traditionally have to:
- pay for dates
- have the car/license/insurance for the date
- pay for gas, etc.
- and when older, his own place.
being older means he is more likely to have those resources, while a younger guy is much less likely to.
For those two big reasons, girls tend to WANT to date older guys, and guys tend to date younger girls. It's always been that way, and for those reasons.3
