that's a bit old, but if you 2 are OK with it, then so am i
At the age of 21 years you are officially an adult so I don't think that a 5 to 15 year age gap is bad as long as you are both adults and its not adult child relationship - then that would be a serious problem like that person should be locked up.
If he has a child, if he is divorced /not to mention if he is married/, if he still lives with his parents, if he's a player, if he has sleazy friends /then you must know he's the same way/, if he seems a bit immature /if he's not mature at HIS age...when will he be/ - he IS NOT good boyfriend material.
I disagree, age DOES matter a lot. In your case, you are 20 years old so it is no problem if you somewhat of an idea of what you want and it matches his idea of what he wants. It just depends on where you guys are at and what you want from each other.
in 21 and dating someone that's 33. so I know exactly how you are feeling right now. but we have been dating for about 5 months now and I have more in common and feel more comfortable with him than I have with any other guy. I think that if he makes you happy and you make him happy then go for it. add me if you want to talk about it :)
It's fine...your a grown women. You should date whoever you wish...My parents are 16 years apart and my grandparents were 14 && they both have wonderful relationships. So plain and simple regardless what others think and find acceptable...when it's all said and done..it comes down to you.
age is but a number... that's wha I always say! :)
IMO I do think this is a bit to much of an age difference I mean think about it he was buying his first legal beer when you were 8 years old! while it IS possible if two people love each other enough that it can work with this kind of age difference the major events of the society you were raised are different in some cases dramatically so. so I do think this is not an appropriate age gap for any one but I do acknowledge that stranger things have happened so if you REALLY like this guy then give it a shot its really up to you to decide if you and he are BOTH mature enough to handle that kind of relationship. I wish you the best of luck no matter what happens.
too old in my opinion but you can do whatever you want
My sister's partner is 18 years older than she is, I thought that was extreme but after I've gotten to know him he's a great guy and it seems normal now. I guess a lot of people are wary seeing an older guy with an younger girl because they judge what his intentions are too quickly. Hope you're guy is one of the good ones.
Age is just a number I will say , But it all matters how you feel about and around him . If you think he is what you want , I will say let the age difference be no problem .
Why do people keep obsessing over this whole thing: "when she was this age he was doing this or that?" Who cares? What are they both doing now is what I'm more interested in. Was he molesting children back then? No so why can't we move on toward more relevant discussion. Are those really the thoughts that people use to make the most important decisions in their life? No wonder the divorce rate in this country is so high. Look at the ignorant teeny bopper thought processes that we use. She is not talking about picking out a pair of shoes to match her purse.
I say go for it. Consider all the angles of it and not just the first 6 months of it and if it still appeals to you then why not? Like the girl below posted, we are here today and gone tomorrow so do what makes you happy. And in terms of him getting "old"...Everybody is different. My dad is in his 60's and as much as it grosses me out to hear about it, he is a beast sexually and don't take anything for it. If the guy is more attractive to you at his age than your peers of your age, he probably has just plain good genetics. And so 20 years from now he will probably still be more attractive at 53 than those guys will be at 40.
Aging all boils down to 2 things. How well they take (and have taken) care of themselves and GENETICS. There is a 56 year old dude that murders everybody in our MMA gym. And there are plenty of 19-20 year old guys that are laying on a couch right now, fat as all outdoors, playing video games and eating fast food. And that's the way they will most likely be their whole lives. Research shows that most people continue the lifestyle and habits for the rest their lives that they have settled into by the age of 20. There are exceptions but it is pretty true. Atleast with the older guy, you know what he is and what he's gonna turn out to be. No surprises.
It's not about now, it's about 10-15 years down the line. If you don't care to think that far ahead, then don't worry about it. Suck his wallet dry.
10 years from now, you will be entering your sexual peak. At the same time, he will be having his midlife crisis. You will crave more love and passion, while he will be almost completely impotent and disinterested. See the problem? Naturally, men become consumed with work and being able to maintain a standard of living, and it can be stressful. Not to mention, his testosterone levels will be... ehh.. down.
Absolute tosh. How can you predict the life of someone other than yourself when it's almost impossible to predict the life of yourself.
yeahh you got a car to drive you around, an apartment to f*** with him, an somebody more mature than the guys of yoru age, plussss think of all the $$$$ that he has? just think of all the shoes and dresses that he could buy you
thats OK it isn't like high school times where you get people talking sh*t.
I"m 33 dating a 21 year old woman I met at a group outing. We're in love with each other now. The sex is great, she's very intelligent, will end up being a dentist, I love spending time with her, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to ask her to marry me some day. If you feel it's right do it.
Well, technically no. It's more of an image thing, and that's purely up to the two of you to deal with.
Depends what you both want. He may be thinking about marriage while you may be thinking about dating. If he simply wants to date and sex be careful he doesn't have a secret family else where. other than that age difference mean nothing
