So anyway, I don't post here much but this has been on my mind for awhile..
so I figured I'd get some comments/advice here,, you guys seem to have your heads on straight, for the most part i think one of the biggest problems with it would the distance...
I’m dating a guy who is three years younger than me.
This is something that, for whatever reason, almost always illicits weird reactions from people.
Here are 10 things you’ll only understand if you’re dating a younger guy: You realize that most people think that age equals maturity. Just because I’m a girl I can’t date someone younger than me?
When they find out my boyfriend is younger, one of the first things people ask me is if he’s immature. I obviously don’t think he’s immature if I’m dating him. People I barely know are always asking me, “But aren’t you worried about you guys not being on the same page? You’ll get used to those moments of realizing your childhoods were just a little different.
I'm a college freshman (18) and shes a high school junior (16).
After all, you didn’t exactly grow up at the same time.
So theres this girl at work that I've started to like, a lot.. I know thats not much of a difference (in 10 years we'll be 28 and 26, which sounds fine) , but it seems like it now.
unless you commute or go to a school close to home. The only thing that I can think is that you'll get bored with her at school.
I mean, sure, there are some things that are different about dating someone who isn’t your age, but for the most part it’s really not that big of a deal. The most common reaction to the age difference is total shock, followed by the question “But how did you meet? Sometimes when you’re with him and all of his friends, you might feel a little out of place. You learn that people are rude enough to ask questions like, “But why would you date someone younger than you?
Any girl who has dated a younger guy knows that other people tend to make this situation more awkward than it should be. ” Oh, I don’t know, I was trolling the local middle school and put a spell on him. ” Because I want to, and because I’m not judgmental. You realize that there’s a big double standard – most people won’t blink an eye about an older guy dating a slightly younger girl, but if it’s the other way around, watch out.
