I'm now 40, and he's 27 going on 28. We clicked in every way possible and it felt like we were old friends picking up where we left off in another lifetime. It felt refreshing to date a good-looking younger guy. I would want a woman to be driven to succeed in a field of endeavor she loves. And if he's your boss, the said power trip he is getting off on should be overt. Ultimately, the age factor didn't matter much to him.
This relationship lasted into college and was, what some would say, serious. This might sound weird but because of that prevailing notion when I was 21 dating a 25 year old I was actually really proud of it. Next thing you know, he's your closest friend as well as your boyfriend — which creates a co-dependent dynamic that's bad for any relationship. I was around adults all my life -- events, parties, meetings -- so I really knew it no other way. I don't think it's an issue at all, especially for you with only 3 years difference. I met a wonderful guy. You might feel like Joan Jett when he picks you up in his Seville outside the high school in front of all your friends, but he is being mercilessly mocked by all of the women in his life for dating a 14-year-old.
Is it okay if my boyfriend is 10 years older than me? He will look so much older in public. I liked that aspect of our relationship. You say you like her. The bolded would be my biggest problem if I were in a similar situation. We've spent the last three years getting to know each other, how we interact, where are weaknesses are, where we compliment each other. A woman thinks it is gross even if they have relatives married to older men.
My friends thought I was just trying to get revenge on my ex-husband, who had cheated on me. However if you and your parents see that he is using you for sex, report to police and enjoy his arrest. I trust him 100 percent and i know he would never do anything to hurt me. But he can hurt you. I don't see a single thing wrong with it.
However, we ended up breaking up after a year of dating because with someone two years older than him. The older you get, the less that small of a gap even matters. He genuinely likes them and they feel the same for him. We already liked each other before we realized there was a large gap. When the roles are reversed and an older man dates a younger woman, the men are often congratulated and revered. That's like valuing a 30-year-old because he has the math aptitude of a middle schooler. She's making much more than me and way ahead in life.
Now, I look at this from two viewpoints: 1 he doesnt think i'd want to hang out with his kids, in which case i suppose we'd have to talk about that eventually. In fact, I've never actually dated anyone older than 21. And some advice for anyone in a position similar, forget the judgment, or the opinions of others. And if you tell them, you'll deal with all-out fights. We don't always agree, but we always respect one another and discusss any problems that may occur.
I still like her but I've never dated a woman older than me. We didn't have much in common, but that didn't matter. Different life experiences leading to problems raising family? I was 36 and he was 26. My girlfriend is 5 years older than me I'm 22, she's 27 and I honestly couldn't care less. Being the older, wiser man is a power trip for him. He convinced me there were genetic reasons for him to never have kids so he wouldn't change his mind so far he hasn't.
You both have something equally to give one another. In fact, I don't think that I've seriously dated anyone who wasn't at least fifteen years older. When I dated guys my age, I had to pay for dinner, and concerts, and their lives. He will look a lot older than you, be worn out a lot sooner than you, and just think about it. I never thought in a million years he would even like a girl like me.
