When I was 16 he was When he was 16 I was I totally know what you mean! Me and my friends have done this with another friend of ours who's been dating her current bf for 2 years!
She's 22 and he's 28, we were like, wow when he was 15 she was 9! Haha, glad to know we're not the only ones. I think it's straight up weird that anyone has a big problem with your 21 year old friend dating a 19 year old. It is very strange that people have a problem with it, but I didn't know if that was just my opinion. We all went out to a party Friday night, and a mutual friend called her desperate and that she must be so lonely to go for a younger man. As you said, a 21 year old guy and a 19 year old girl and no one would think twice.
I don't know what this friend's problem is but I hope you let them know you think they're being weird and defend your other friend if this bullshit comes up again.
That dude is not 15 and they need to calm the fuck down with the insults. I don't really think it matters. If the chemistry's there and he's mature, I don't care.
I have no problem with it whatsoever. If I dated men more than several years younger than me, I'd be dating a teenager, though. That would be odd.
Well, all the teenagers on xBox live have already slept with my mom, so I guess it's not so taboo. I'm dating a year-old, I'm No one I know cares unless they're in their teens. My friend is 21 and seeing a 19 year old.
Is that considered strange? If it were a 21 year old man seeing a 19 year old woman, I don't think anyone would bat an eyelash. I think that there's no inherent problem with dating younger men But having one person able to drink and one person not able to drink is tough, just as one person in college and one person either in high school or out in the working world.
And that's true regardless of which gender is older. I'm in my 40s, and I've dated a number of younger guys.
In fact, I've never actually dated anyone older than I am not by plan, that's just who I've ended up flirting with. Some people in society have a problem with it. But as long as both people are consenting adults, I don't see the problem. I see nothing wrong with a 21 year old dating a 19 year old. I don't give a shit what other people think about who I date. If I find a younger attractive guy that I'm compatible with, I would date the hell out of him.
I never had before until just recently, I'm 26 and I've had a few dates with a guy who is It felt a little funny at first, because he's younger than my younger brother, but in reality, this guy and I are basically in the same life situation, so it works ok so far.
I know a few of his buddies have ribbed him about dating an older woman I hate being called an older woman at 26 but it's all good natured. After I turned 21, I wasn't really sure about dating a guy who was younger because of the drinking age thing. I think a 21 year old girl dating a 19 year old guy is fine. They're both college aged, I don't know if they're in college, but they would be in school at the same time.
I've noticed that as I've gotten older I'm 37 that men in their 20s still hit on me with the intention of wanting more than just sex. The problem is I don't find anyone below a certain age attractive. I once had sex with someone ten years younger than me and it was awful. Then I remembered how sex was less awesome when I was younger. I think if older women are attracted to younger men, just go for it.
It's only when they're super-young a 22M turned me down during a job interview, followed me outside and asked me on a date? Not a society-taboo, but an "ugh, he's a young kid" feeling.
Having said that, my boyfriend is 5 years younger than me 32 and I don't feel any age difference.
I almost forgot there was an age difference just now. We just seem to be around the same age. I'm dating three years younger right now. I did it before, but when I was 22 that felt like a much bigger gap. Now that I'm nearly 30 and my SO's maturity level closely matches my own, it makes zero difference.
Getting older bothers him way more than I bothers me. It is way more common for women to be the same age as or younger than their partners in my circles but it isn't unheard of for older women to be with younger men and most of us don't really care.Dating a Younger Man – Part 1
The age gap has become less of a big deal as I've gotten older. A friend is 35 and just married her 27 year-old husband and and had their first child together.
Another friend was 33 when she married her husband who was 28 at the time. As long as both people are in the same life stage, I haven't noticed age making a huge difference. I'm 4 years younger than my SO. When I'm 30 like him I could see myself being ok with someone who was But at 26 I don't see myself as very likely to date someone who is I do find it a little weird for there to be an age gap either way when one partner is in their mid-twenties and the other is 18 or 19, just because people change so much between their teens and their twenties I wonder how it works.
It wouldn't have worked for me. But ultimately it's none of my business and if it works for them, I really don't care what other people do. I have a problem when there's a very large age difference like a 40 year old woman dating a 20 year old man because there is just SUCH a difference in maturity and understanding, but I also accept that they're both consenting adults and can do what they like.
Older woman dating younger man reddit
I also have this problem with any gender combination. That is NOT a problem, people. I prefer older men, certainly, but if a guy were twenty-one and I were into him, I'd go for it. I wouldn't date anyone who were twenty, though, because I do like to be able to go out for drinks. Well it depends where both people are at age wise.
If the younger partner is at least in their late 20s than I don't see how it would be any of my business. I would say a 21 year old and a 19 year old is fine. Their both out of high school presumably and have about the same again presumably life experience and neither is a minor.
If the younger partner was still a minor I would say then the older partner probably does deserve harsh criticism unless it was a 17 year old and an 18 year old still in high school. I feel that if I dated a guy in his 20's, we'd be in different stages in our lives, and it wouldn't work out.
Late to the party, but it's really not a big deal for the most part. I'm 26, my guy is It bothered me for about a month or so before I remembered that I thought he was older than me when I asked him out. Now, I think it can get wonky with teens in high school A 16 year old dating someone who is 22?
I tend to prefer dating guys younger than me. Although I think life stages is a bigger deal than actual age. So like I'm 36 dating a guy who's 29 but we're in similar places in our lives. I wouldn't date someone who was still in undergrad college. It used to make me slightly self conscious but I've gotten over it. I couldn't date anone younger that 21, now that im I feel like it realy limits what we can do sometimes.
Im about 4 months older than my current SO but have dated guys both older and much younger than myself i was 17 he was My mentality changed this semester when I went on dates with two freshman guys both were 17 and I'm almost Age really isn't a major factor.
I have no issue with it. My last few boyfriends were younger and most of the guys who contact me online dating are younger - to clarify I'm late 20s and it's usually years younger so I'm not about to date a teenager. When I was 15, I had a huge crush on a guy who was Aside from issues surrounding the fact that I was an out lesbian at the time, my friends at that point teased me mercilessly about being a "pedophile" or a "cradle robber" so I never pursued it.
It's a super weird stigma. It depends on how much younger, whether I would do it. I prefer my partners to be within 4 years or so of my age, in either direction.
It's considered unusual, so there is a stigma. If it's what you want, then go for it! I personally can't bring myself to date someone younger than me, because right now I'm in my mid twenties and guys younger than me mostly just want to barhop and party. It's whatever, but I guess I'm sort of more mellow about my drinking.
That or guys younger can't get into bars or some shows and it's a bummer for me. That being said, age isn't the biggest factor. Maturity goes a long way, as well as understanding that with large age gaps, both people might be in different stages of their life. Just differs person to person. A friend in one of my classes was 26 yrs. They're still together but they definitely had a huge rough patch. It can work, and if it does great. No text is allowed in the textbox.

Younger guys that date older women: I wish it wern't true, but my last two GFs couldnt hang with me and it gets kinda frustrating finishing every date not finishing. Great, don't have to worry about pregnancy, and shes pretty free and open with what she wants. Unfortunately its a distance thing, so I dont see her that often. And some things have changed with the sex, I wonder if i'm doing everything I can for her but that is a relationship I suppose. She is horny all the time, can fuck all night and is happy to do anything as long as poop isn't involved.
As an older woman who predominantly hooks up with younger lovers Generally, older girls are way better at sex than girls under I think they reach their sexual peak around their 30s? They're a lot less passive, and participate a lot more, and know how to do a BJ properly.
