I'm 23 years old, and just started school last spring. THe first 5 years after high school I just got a job and pretty much wasted the 5 years doing nothing but hanging with friends. Still live with parents.
Now, the reason I don't want to date a girl that's younger than like 20, is because of all this. I understand this is a bad situation I'm in, and I feel like if I dated a younger girl I'd be taking advantage of her nieveness/taking advantage of the fact that I'm older and that she may like to date older. Someone my age would be more likely to take all that into perspective.
I feel like if a girl my age accepted my situation, that'd be one thing. I'd feel like I'm a lucky guy. If a younger girl did it, I'd feel like I'm taking advantage of her age
I don't think I'm crazy

I think it's maturity.
You and a girl younger than 20 are on different levels. Now there are a few exceptions, like if she was some female version of Doogie Howser but 95% of the time a girl that age is just not ready to be dating a more stable guy. I don't think you could take her as seriously as you could a girl closer to your own age or level in life.
And by LEVEL, in this case I mean milestones and achievements and mentality. Usually age has a lot to do with that so I understand your reasoning.0
