May 23, · 19 YEAR OLD DATING A 25 YEAR OLD? | GIRL TALK FT. MY LINE SISTERS • I am 20 years old Dating A 21 Year Old Man At The Age Of 16!😱 - Duration. Feb 14, · I was a 20 year old dating a 28 year old. Now I am a 27 year old happily married to a 35 year old. In our case, it worked out beautifully and things are pretty great with us. I am so, so glad I ddin't reject him just because of his age. Just a data point. But, I would not have dated him while living with my parents or while working with him.
Interesting thread. I am 37 dating a 25 year old girl. It was a total fluke I met her at all. I was in a bar having a beer with a buddy and he left to go hit on the bartender at another place at 3pm in the afternoon. This hot girl came and sat down alone when I was finishing my beer and ready to leave.
I was on vacation and she wasnt working. At first I was just thinking of it as a hot piece of action. She had a boyfriend even. But the more we got to know eachother the more we realized that we're like carbon copies of eachother, we have a running joke that we're clones. We can complete eachothers sentences and anticipate eachothers thoughts. I know. Weird seeing that there's a 12 year age gap. I've never been married, I have no kids, neither has she. I had actually written off ever getting a girlfriend ever again after 17 years of back to back serious relationships, I was just going to date until I met this girl.
I was seeing 9 girls and from the moment we met we were inseperable and I dropped the ball on all of them. What has come up so far with the age gap is she is a bit concerned because she wants to be married with kids at 30 - at which time I'd be There's also probably a bit of niggling concern about what her family would think they are quite conservative although she hasn't aired it.
Also what's come up is that I have had so many former serious girlfriends and that while 3 months is a long relationship for her she has only had 2 actual boyfriends thats more like 3 years for me. When the subject of exes comes up she feels like its a one sided conversation because she doesnt have those kind of stories to tell.
On the upside though, she has brought up to me that guys her age often just dont get it. They wont shut up and listen when they need to, they have to prove that they're right, they are always pushing her for the serious relationship that she isnt ready for right now shes had four guys try to marry her and one guy try to get her pregnant against her wishes.
She says she feels more comfortable with me than with any other guy she's met. I dont push on her for even the label we're currently officially just "friends" but the way its going I think it's pretty well inevitable.
I think my relationship experiences pay off when I'm with her. I will wake her up gently and bring her coffee and already have breakfast on the make. I will hold her hand when walking down the street and give her small neck kisses and PDA that is appropriate for the situation.
Her young age pays off for me in that she is not yet jaded like many women in their 30s, she hasnt been burned badly by a lot of men yet. She sees things in a much simpler light; we slept in a tent in my backyard and watched the clouds and pointed out what we thought they looked like, I havent done anything like that in years. She doesnt boss me around or tell me what to do, unless I'm out of line or its in jest.
If it's party time she can keep up with me rather than beaking off about how I drink too much. Its been a month and it's been fabulous. I hope that we get the label thing out of the way and just enjoy eachother, even if it does end up ending at one point or another because she wants to settle down and have kids and thinks I'm too old.
As much of our generation is delaying activities like marriage and procreating, we are, in effect, also prolonging its adolescence. Thus, we ladies have looked to older men to fulfill those more grown-up needs. To engage with an older guy is to peek inside a different point-of-view on life. Because those cologne-wearing, Dolce-upgraded, French-press-drinking, something hunks are a whole different animal.
Show him something new. Which leads me to… 3. Challenge him, but know when to stop. Start becoming a do-er. You said you wanted to be more active, remember? Just never refer to his age in a bad light because that is his Achilles Heel; it's what his mother nags him about.
That means no joking about him being an old man or way, way worse… an old fart. Recoils in horror. Heaven forbid you ever, ever, use the f-word! Just understand that his cooking you dinner is not the same as you two cooking together. Yes, I was a little awe struck. Sure, when I told my friends I was a little apprehensive, but it soon became clear that I was getting something they could only fantasise about. So whereas a year-old might dream of taking a Formula 1 car around the track at mph, Sally would leap into the driving seat and strap in.
Many women who have gone through marriage and kids and come out the other side want to flirt with being irresponsible again, at which point you might find yourself in an Uber at 5am en route back from an underground drinking club that required a codeword to enter, wondering what the hell happened to those twilight hours from which you have only a dim memory of flagging down a fire engine.
Just accept that it happened, and move on. On the other hand, a few more years does add something. History brings knowledge of the world and how to navigate it. Steve Granitz Relationships take practice and by virtue of their advanced years, an older partner will be more experienced than you. Knowing when to argue and when to make up is a skill honed over time, and is vital if you want to stay together for more than six months.
Often, you just have to swallow your pride and let them take the lead - they probably do know better. That goes for money, too. Spending the evening obsessing over whose turn it is to pay for the pizza is deeply unsexy, and puts a dampener on the hours you have together — if you find yourself with an older woman who wants to treat you, sit back and enjoy. Mind games are very much the environ of the younger girl.
