Is 29 too old for a 20 year old?

i really like this guy but he's 29... I'm more mature than all my friends who are older but I don;t know how I'd prove that to him... Is this a dealbraker because I already think it is, he hasn't shown interst even though we exchanged numbers

  • you know everyone always says "I'm more mature" in some what, whether it be im more mature than my friends or I'm mature for my age to help justify the situation but the simple truth is he is just way older. you're still in a phase for experiencing the fun things in life, he's in a phase where he really has to settle down and stabilize his future. its not a good fit for most aspects in life, if anything, you two will enjoy each other's company a decent while, but it'll all come crumbling down when shit tries to get real serious, most likely.

  • My partner and me have the same age difference. We met when I was 19.
    Go for it !
    Why focus on age difference?
    A relationship could very well not work out with a guy your age.
    You take the same chance when you date older.
    you won't know unless you give it a shot.

  • the age difference is 45% of your age. When he was 19 and effing around, you were in elementary school, a child wearing white socks etc, I won't detail further.

    What's his problem with girls 27-33 yo?

  • If you both like each other I don't see a problem with having that age difference. I don't think any relationship will be completely perfect and I don't think age means that much if you're two adults that are attracted to each other.

  • I don't see a big problem. You're an adult, you know what you're getting into. The age difference doesn't really matter unless the difference in life experience makes the two of you feel incompatible. Otherwise, you're consenting adults, do what you want.

    I don't know how to tactfully broach the age subject with him and ask if he's bothered by your age. Just show genuine signs of interest and let him see that you're as much an adult as he is.

      FIFY:
      "You're an adult, you should know what you're getting into"

    • @jacquesvol I haven't seen anyone 29 years old whose age has allowed him/her some way to take advantage of a 20-year-old. If someone isn't competent at 20 years old to be dealing with a 29-year-old, then she probably isn't competent to be dealing with a 22-year-old either.

      At any rate, if the relationship fails because the age gap makes them feel uncomfortably different, then it fails, and that's all. It doesn't mean that they can't at least give it a try.

  • Who cares about age. If you like someone, go for it. That's not even a huge difference in any case, but people too often get in their own way with concerns like this.

  • I'd say that as long as it's not more than 10 years difference, then it should be somewhat okay. Then again, sooner or later age is going to be a factor growing old.

  • You're both of age so I have no feeling about it. Being more "mature" to me doesn't change anything to me. I highly doubt that a 56 year old and a 19 year old are going to have much in way of common and wants, but they may.

  • I'm 19 and dating a 29 year old haha, it is what you make it..

    If you don't mind about the age difference, or even really notice it.. Then that's how hopefully he'll feel too.

    Have a chat with him :)

  • Depends on the person. I only date guys who are 4 years older then me or 1 year younger then me. Only exception would be for Tom Hiddleton or Leonardo DiCaprio.

  • Naw I don't think that is to old. Thought if he isn't showing any interest then maybe fine someone else?

  • its not too old, if you were 18 than it would be (because he might use you because u were naive), but you are mature enough at 20
