Dating five years older

Which doesn't make your age gap all that awful, considering. Honestly, I don't think that your relationship is weird or odd at all. If I could find someone who's 26 at the same sort of "stage" in their life as me, I'd probably date them. Problem is, I don't think there's any year-olds who've been working for the same company for ten years, travel worldwide for business constantly, and have to take calls from the board at 2am.

Someone who's driven is the kind of partner I'm looking for. I value success, so anyone who is driven towards success however they define it has that in common with me. Sure, they don't have to be a highly-paid corporate suit like me. They could be an accomplished painter or something and make little to nothing. As long as they have ambition and drive. Dated a girl 3 years younger than me, it was aight. When I was 19 I had the opportunity to date a 15 year old but I passed on her.

She was really fucking hot too so I kind of regret that decision but at least my morals are intact lol.

Ever dated a girl 5 years older than you? Considering your younger than 25.

Gross, but to be fair I'm It would be illegal for me to date someone that is that much younger than me. I'm 24, so if I were to date someone who's , it would be a huge difference. Now, this doesn't mean that every 19 year old is the same. It all depends on how you act, what your priorities are when it comes to dating, etc. Maybe when I am more into my 30's, as now that means me dating a 22 year old and I often find younger girls to not be mature enough for my liking. I have given a few younger girls a shot and they all failed for this sole reason. I feel like i'd be charged with statutory rape.

But seriously, I'm sure as I get older it will be less of an issue but right now I'm looking at 2 years either way. I think after 20 it doesn't matter much as long as the two get along. Though I personally rarely trust when someone adds qualifiers such as "I'm mature for my age. Just say "I'm I think part of it is that I remember being 18 and saying "I'm mature for my age" when in reality I just didn't want to seem like a total partier.

I essentially just ended up having a boring five years until I hit 22 and realized that sometimes it's fun to be immature. I'd never date anyone under 24 or Just because I don't think most people have really grown up til then, regardless of their place in life. It was never an issue in our relationship, but it is something that we will soon have to deal with on another level. I'm 58 now and I'd like to retire soon. If we want to retire at the same time we have to make sure our "nest egg" can support her longer expected life span - a minor complication we never thought about when we first started dating.

As far as stories, there really isnt much to share. Beliefs on important matters like politics, religion, technology, ect is way more important than age. Only problem Ive run into was family.

Men, how do you feel about dating a woman 5 years or more younger than you? : AskMen

And that was with a girl that didnt have a car and wasn't independent at all like you. Same age gap here. Don't even notice it anymore after you just accept it for what it literally is.

It wasn't too bad but it didn't work out for long. Honestly, the biggest issue there was the college barrier; you are just in very different places in your life. I think it would be true even if you were 23 and That would be illegal for me. I've dated women 5 years older, but that's about as close as I get. If I was 30, then probably, it would be a maturity and "place in life" issue at that point. I'm 23 and have dated 34 and 36 year olds and the reason those relationships ended had nothing to do with the age difference and everything to do with the fact that they're douchebags.

  4. Seeing as I consider myself "mature" for my age too, I probably wouldn't go for it. I guess I've never been in the situation, though. I would feel quite emasculated by just the sheer I'm 21 so dating someone five years younger than me would mean dating a sixteen year old. In addition to that, it wouldn't work if they ended up going to university and I really wouldn't want to be with someone that inexperienced in both sex and relationships. I think twenty is the sweet spot, and I think I'd have no problem dating someone of that age when I'm five or ten years older.

    However, my network of friends is still intricately connected to our old high school so if the opportunity arose to hook up casually with a sixteen to eighteen year old presents itself, I probably will. People can be really physically attractive at those ages. I'm pretty sure dating someone 5 years younger than me would be a terrible idea on multiple levels.

    You'd be surprised how many self-proclaimed "mature" women completely breakdown the moment they're confronted with a serious problem, especially while they're in a relationship. I'm a big fan of the rule of seven. You take the older persons age, divide their age in half, and add 7. When I was 23 I dated an 18 year old and it was awful but I learned just how important it is to be in the same place in life with someone. Sounds like he's trying to do some growing up and you're just getting started growing up. I'd say you guys should be fine, age probably won't be a problem. Do you not look for emotional compatibility in relationships?

    Or do you consider yourself as having the emotional maturity of a 23 year old? Some of the women I've dated that have been older than me have had less emotional compatibility than some of the younger ones. I would not feel weird about a 5 year difference of someone that is clearly as mature as yourself.

    The only thing about your age that really bothers me is that fact that in the US that I cannot go out for drinks with you. Yeah, that was the initially issue I had as well, but it doesn't bother him since he is sober has been for 5 years now so I don't think it's gonna change and I'm not a big drinker at all so it works out.

    I think phases of life are more important than the actual number on your age. It doesn't sound like you're in wildly different places in what you're doing. I wouldn't worry about it. If everything except the age is great then just forget about it. Nothing is a big deal unless you make it a big deal. By not making a big deal out of it. Honestly the biggest problem with age differences tends to be maturity levels or areas a person is in their life. If you are on a similar maturity scale, and you both are on track for similar things and understand each others priorities than by all means do your thing.

    That would make the girl around my sisters age. No way would I ever date someone that much younger than me. The best way is just to keep being yourself and not try to act like someone you're not, this probably won't get you anywhere and he will most likely notice it. I get how it feels to be generally more mature for your age and understand how it can make quite a bit of difference to your life.

    However stupid it probably sounds age is only a number, if you think about other people you know you can probably get an idea of how someone acts changes how they are perceived in terms of maturity by other people, not based just on their age. If you're really worried about it which IMO you probably shouldn't be then it would probably be best to talk to him if things start to progress a bit further. It would be crazy to stop seeing anyone just based on some statistics so just see how things go and forget about his age as he will just be interested in you for who you are.

    On a personal note I wouldn't date anyone 5 years younger than me as I'd end up in prison, but if I was 27 then I definitely would, so good luck!

Do you notice the age difference? I find them interesting to say the least. Very sexually active, this is probably due to a woman peaking her sexuality around this time.

    It's very easy to be with them as they make it very easy. The one drawback is that they seem to act their biological clock is speeding up so they want a lot out of a relationship really fast. I think it was very nice though.. It's pretty relaxing to have a woman who's willing to do for you without drama attached. Most women my age 21 want too much and live off drama. That's pretty much how both of mine ended.

    It was great while it lasted, left a lovely impression on me about older women in their late 20s, early 30s. The only women worth dating ARE older. Anything younger is too confused or depressed that investment is just asking for problems. I know exactly what you mean when you say younger women live off drama. That's why i find most younger women unapplealing. Well I've just broken up with someone and I'm now It's so hard to find someone normal irrespective of age.

    I now face the difficulty of dating girls cognizant of their body clicks ticking, and they tend to drop it fast if they don't feel you're 'the one', or alternatively push it up to 3rd or 4th gear when you've only just got going. At least with the young 'uns you don't get 'high pressure' dating I can't speak for 25yr old women though. I guess you should look into what she's doing with her life before you decide what to do. One thing I noticed about women at that age is that there's a crucial thing you need to know. Has she gone through her party-girl wild stage yet or was she held back by something?

    If she's already gone through it and has a decent career going for herself I say hell yea go for it. If she never went through her wild stage because something prevented her relationship, kid, etc then you should probably just use her for sex. If they couldn't have a wild stage in their late teens early 20s then they WILL go through it later on most likely and you don't wanna deal with all that crap.

    It shouldn't be too difficult of a question for her, most girls I talked to that went through it talk about it with no problems. Also, if she hasn't dated, that's not a horrible sign. Sure beats those going in and out of relationships. Exactly its like they expect men to be perfect. Then later in their live those kind of girls end of hating men cuz they don't baby them and start political crap.

    Older ladies know what to expect and when a younger guy comes in and shows them im mature and not here to play games then they are all over it cuz their done with their dramatic past. Ah well I'm a crotchety old 35 year old now and don't fancy dating anyone older than me! I've just broken up with my girlfriend of 5 years - she was 29 when we split 3 months ago.

    I'm sitting at 23 now, and the last girl I dated was 19, so still pretty new to life outside of the walls of her high school.

    Unfortunately, her body left, but not her mindset. Guess I should know better. I'm always the one giving out dating advice, but I'll be damned if I can ever listen to any of it: Please Log In to post.
