Hi! So I like a guy who is 2.3 years younger (I will be 25 he will be 23). It’s not as if it would influence my decision, but do you think such an age difference really matters?
Please help, and don’t hold back your true opinion. Maybe I'm too picky, but I have always preferred older guys and turned down younger ones. I look younger than my age so I meet younger guys. OK and I'm black he is white but the race thing doesn't bother me its just the age that makes me uncomfortable. Thanks!

If it's just the age that you're worried about, to a guy 2.3 years wouldn't really mean much. I think for most guys it only would really matter as you approach 6 years and it also depends on how you look. If you look the same age as him, or even younger I doubt he'd have a problem with it. In fact the chance he would have a problem with age is so slim that it's almost not even worth talking about.
The thing with a guy dating and older girl though is that you have to sort of act as though you're younger. Age is really just a number and what freaks guys out about an older woman is that she might have more life experience than he does. He'll think things like, oh she's smarter than me, she's probably better in bed than I am, I don't want to look stupid around her by comparison.
How do you solve this problem? Just play the role of being younger, make him feel like he's the wise and experienced one. Don't do it to the point where you come across as fake though, that will just turn him off. Be yourself and just focus on trying not to intimidate him by coming off as having too much life experience.0
