It is also important to note that I am confident the age difference is not an issue to her at all, and I suspect her family is OK with it as well, since about 8 months ago she ended a 2-year relationship with someone the same age as me. If it turns out that it won't work out then , atleast you tried. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space." - Johnny Cash uh oh 5 years. Once people pass the 20 year old mark, there isnt so much difference in age. Everyone was on their case when they were dating, especially her family.
Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated.. I think that it is perfectly fine to date someone younger then you. Who knows this maybe the women that you may spend the rest of your life with or something. If you can keep up with her danceclubbing every weekend and zipping all over the place with youthly vigor, then i dont see a problem. I know people older than me that im more mature then, and i know people way younger than me that are much more responsible. The guy is 14 years her senior and guess what, 8 years later they're still married and still inlove! My ex-husband is five years older than I am-- we met when I was 23 and he was 28. We had many similar likes and tastes, and grew to be best friends. No one ever believes me when I tell them how old he is. If you two get along and have stuff in common (which is important) then go for it! It's really up to you and how you feel about it, as well as, your partner.

But, overall, just do what's legal and what you feel comfortable doing :) It's really no one else's business anyways.
:) It's really not that big of a gap, especially later on in life.
And so what, maybe the 18 year old just needs someone more mature than someone their own age.
Not at all Im 16 years old and dating a 28 year old and he is the sweetest person ive ever come across.
I understand that a 60 year old being married to a 55 year old is not a big deal, but this is a bit different.. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. My best friend at the time eloped withe her bf - she got married when she wasn't even 17.i take it as a very good problem is that younger guys want to date me because they think im as young as them or younger.i'm now dating a 23 year old hes very mature for his age and he even acts more mature than myself but, i'm confused about being in a relationship with him reason being i'm three years older.Are you worried that he is immature and might change?You need to pinpoint the problem and ask the question in such a way that it resolves any worries you might have.
