I'm a 21 year old female and I've never dated before. I'm rather introverted, and romance just became something that didn't seem it would ever be for me.
About eight months ago I made a friend who has fast become the greatest friend I have ever had. And quite recently, I fell head over heels in love with him. The thing is, he's in his 40s.
To be honest, once each person is past the legal age then any gap is more or less irrelevant. If you find you still have enough to talk about despite the age gap then why not just go ahead and enjoy yourself?
If you feel comfortable, I say go for it.
Other people will find it creepy. You might get called a gold digger or something like that. As an aside, make sure he's not married before you go any deeper.
HE IS A PEDOPHILE!!!!!!!!!111
This will all be awkward as fuck, but you will not back off anyway so what does it matter?
Presenting your parents to your new boyfriend will be an epic episode whenever it occurs, I wish I could be there.
Don't do it
Do it. You both have tons of gain from it. He can impart upon you his experience and wisdom, and you can help him regain his youth. There's nothing better for a man his age than a young woman when he's probably starting to grow a bit cynical. And a strong, dependable man is perfect for a woman your age.
speaking of age gap, i was actually about to post a thread about it myself, but to save space i may as well post in this one.. sorry for any inconveniences.
to avoid tl;dr i will cut it short. im 19, shes turning 16 in a month. i like her and all, and i know shes into me but i just cant get over the 3 yr gap. at that age it can be pretty bad i hear, but as far as 15/16 yr olds go i have noticed she is more mature than most i have met.
>>8 Keep it simple for now. She's not legal, so don't go there. But romance? Go for it. There's nothing wrong with love.
>As an aside, make sure he's not married before you go any deeper.
I think u should go 4 him, but don't get 2 serious b4 knowing that u are going 2 b 2gether.
>>8 You could still date her. i mean it's not that big of a age difference, but don't go too far.
I'm 20, she's 15... It's Canada, but, GAHHhhhHH ('A` )
I think you should try it if you feel like it will work!
If you're happy together, then because it seems like you're mature enough to know there might be problems because of the age gap, then there is really no reason to hold back.
Where are people finding all these too-young girls? I run into none in my day to day life, with the exception of schoolgirls on the bus. A friend of mine at around 30 had a girl somewhere around 15, and the guy would never say.
I have a 33-year old friend who married a guy who was about mid-forties when they started dating. It's not as big a gap as OP here has, but my friend is doing great, even with the college stepsons who came with the package.
