And I'll possibly date a mature 17 year old. But anything above 18 is all good to go.

No matter how hot.
Maybe use her ass for a one night stand at best but thats it. Originally Posted by methodical.

I always feel like the only reason there are huge age gaps between relationships is because the 26 year old guy can't get with any girls of his age. The only reason the 18 year old girl would go out with him is because she feels mature doing that, or "cool", etc. I always just think it's weird when I see such a huge gap between relationships.

Following the Man Law of half your age plus seven, but backwards, a man older than 24 should not date her. I am super involved in my church and our music program, we're a pretty progressive church and we follow New Thought concepts, so everyone there is pretty awesome and open minded. Since I first started going there back in November I have had a crush on the assistant music director.
I was immediately drawn to him and thought he was at least 24 or 25, but eventually found out he is only 20 years old he'll be 21 in October. I sort of wrote it off and let it fall out of my mind until I joined the music program and got to know him better, and he is just an incredible guy. I haven't been drawn to a person in this way in years upon years. I mean, I literally had dreams this morning that he found out I was infatuated with him and we started dating - and forced myself back to sleep 3 times so it wouldn't end. Another guy in the music program recently asked me out and we went on a few dates, and I couldn't get the other guy out of my mind.
I feel like I'm 16 again - and I sort of love it? I also however wonder if this whole thing is like an He is the only person I've found in the church who is into the same music and lifestyle that I am. He is one of the very few guys who I have met who fits this particular bill I'm attracted to - just a different type of guy. I don't know what I'm looking for here, and I have gone to reddit like twice in my life for advice - but I trust you redditors out there.
You have always been nonbiased and judgement free and I like that. So tell me, would you do it? Nah my parents have this age gap. It's not that big of a deal. You see it all the time with older guys so I wouldn't worry about it. Definitely not creepy at all. But I can tell you the other two people are right. You're at different stages in life.
Please refrain from judging, I feel like I'm already judging myself enough hahaha. We had many differences, but it was a passionate relationship while it lasted 9 months. Deep down, there is probably a psychological reason to why I have always dated older men. Irritated looking man who couldn't have had a. He never took her seriously. If you wait until you're 30 and he's 43, you may find you're closer in age than you are now.
Long term, not much of a good chance, but if you just want to have fun short term, why not? I'm nearly 20 and, to be completely honest, I would find it a little weird if someone 9 years older than me tried to ask me out. That's not to say that you're a creep. In fact, I'm sure many people wouldn't mind dating someone much older than them, and I encourage you to talk to him.
Something you should keep in mind is that you're both in different stages of your lives. He's just getting in to his 20's and only just becoming a real independent adult and seeing the world from this new perspective, whereas you have already had that experience. I agree, it would be flattering but not to sure if you both are at the same life stage. You two may have different goals and visions of where you see your life at the moment which would pose an issue if you two really were to date.
These are things that I have totally thought about and I think I'm in denial because I'm so excited to actually have a crush on someone hahaha. I remember who I was when I was 20 and even if at the time I thought I had it all figured out and exactly what and who I wanted - I had no idea: I don't think this would be weird, but it really depends on the people.
Some people are 'older' for their age and could be fine in a relationship with an age difference like this. If you're being completely honest when assessing this, where do you think he is? Is he interested in you? Do you think he has any issues that would make him not as likely to make decisions with a sound mind? Personally, if he hasn't shown interest, I wouldn't either though. And if you did enter a relationship with him, you would have to be willing to be honest about whether it's temporary or not, and then honest throughout it to make sure that you aren't misusing him.
And people should do these things in relationships anyway, and he also has an obligation to himself to look out for himself, but I just feel like this stuff should be heightened with age difference. Especially difference like this particularly! The reason I think this could be ok is because it doesn't sound like you're out trolling for 20 year old ass, you just met someone it sounds like you may have chemistry with. But there's still more things to consider. Why do people use age as factor in dating? Look if you like him and you are both mature adults, there is nothing wrong.
Why not try to hang out with him on a non-date first? At least then you can see if you really have a chance together or not. The age is a minor thing, it more depends on who you both are and what you want out of life.
I'm 29 and fell in love with a 19 year old, is this okay or should I not pursue a that you may not be up for what it would take to date someone so much younger. How socially acceptable is it in the US for a guy of the age of 29 dating a girl who is 19? Does this make him a pedophile or something?.
Plus you can feel out if he's even interested in you, if not then it's a moot point anyway. You can enjoy your crush or attempt to move on. I think it matters the amount of respect honesty and adulthood. For both of you. At any age a legal adult can be a total wreck. You'll have fun but it won't last. Way too far apart in lifestyles. Most men aren't totally figured out until their like He'll change I'm guessing. Most recent girlfriend was We had many differences, but it was a passionate relationship while it lasted 9 months.
Personally speaking, I believe age is just a number. I know a couple 26 and 45 and they are pretty happy, also their friends accept it. There have been tougher obstacles in relationships than a 9 year age gap. However, if there are non-negotiables in your life for example, having children , you have to make it clear that you're not compromising and that it's getting done within X amount of time, with or without him. If he's ok with settling down a little younger than the average guy, then more power to you both. Every so often you will come across a unicorn of a man who is far beyond his age in maturity when he's young and would actually be much happier dating an older and mature woman than a woman his own age.
He could be one of those men. The new French president and his wife have a huge age gap between them, check out their story, and she's the one who's much older. You could ask him to go out with you somewhere and get to know him better. I say because you're older, he'd be too shy or less likely to take that first step even if he wanted to because he'd feel you would probably reject him!
Age is never relevant to anything really.
Just be happy, and make people happy. Stop yielding to peer pressure.
Who gives a shit. You don't have to decide where the relationship will go before you even try it.
