Sometimes yes, sometimes no. When I was 23 I dated an 18 year old for a bit, and she was awesome. She was super mature, fun, independent, and really understood life. That's in pure contrast to a girl I dated around the same time who was 22, but was still pretty much a child.
She still watched Disney Channel, thought alcohol was "icky," was very reserved physically, and she was just difficult to be around.
The only thing is about that age difference is that the 23 year old has had two years of unrestricted freedom of where they want to go and what they want to do. You can't go hang out in a bar with his friends to watch the game on the weekend. He can't buy alcohol at the store with you. For 3 years, until he's 26, he kind of has to act like an 18 year old again. If neither of you are drinkers, that doesn't matter as much, but it was a big hinderance to the dating world of myself and the 18 year old, because we either had to be careful to take her to a place where all ages were allowed, or hope that they'd accept her fake ID. It was difficult for me not to just think of grabbing some beers at a concert as something you can "just do" when you want to.
>>16884238 she might not be american and therefore the drinking and going to bars etc might not apply to her situation. but yeah, agree with your message. Just wanted to point that out. Where i live you can drink legally at 18. what do you american do on nights out from the age of 18-21? never understood
From 18-21, I or one of my friends had a fake ID, so drinking was something we could still do. We'd throw house parties and stuff. Hell, those were so much more conducive to meeting and getting with a girl than a club was... I miss those days.
But yeah, most things were house based (even if it was just vidya or TV), or it was a movie/bowling/park/concert night.
>>16884211 Not really. I know people who are happy together despite there being being a considerable age gap between them. If you two get along well and help each other out, then there is nothing weird about it.
When I was 18 I was dating this guy who said he was 23 but it turns our he lied and was 28. I also found out he had plans of trying to convince me into beastality. Guy was messed up I am going to say yes but just because of my experience. Maturity wise there a big difference between an 18 year old and a 19 year old. 18 a baby out of high school.
>>16884211 For women it's fairly normal to date guys that are 3-5 years older than them. However do beware though that boys of your age may start to feel like little kids after dating him a while. A lot of boys tend to mature a lot when they become independent which often happens around their mid twenties at least where I live. Unless he's a man child who women should avoid like plague.
If his or your parents are not against it there's nothing really wrong, some might consider it a bit bold from you though.
I'm 29. a good chunk of the girls that I date are 18,19,20. Most people think I'm 23 or 24 tho. It was weird the first time I broke the half + 7 rule of thumb, but honestly girls under 21 are often just as smart as women over 21. It's like a lot of them get dumber as they age. But same pattern happens with men. Getting plastered and alcoholism and cynicism is pretty unattractive and pretty common. Counter that with dreams and pretty skin. Sure there's plenty of gorgeous women my age plus/minus a few years with pretty skin and a great outlook on life, but their market price is over-rated. I should also mention I'm very fit and look like what the media says a guy should look like and since the media says women should look like young girls, we look normal enough together in public, but I don't know how a long term relationship would pan out -- things usually fizzle after a month or two of hooking up
>>16884211 That's a small age gap. Look for an older guy. You will learn from his experience more, and he will set a high standard for the quality of sex, especially if you've only been with younger guys.
>>16884211 i dated 15 yo gril when i was 20. was it weird? fuck yea, but ppl do it anyways so... its really up to you two folks. from my personal experience i can say that it it wont last though.at this age its to big a gap
>>16886882 Said the guy, who's life doesn't have no deeper meaning than that. Everyone in this thread who says that age gaps are no problem, is the same man-child as this poster is. Your character has not the least matured, that's why you seek younger women. The older "overrated" ones rejected you because you're too childish and meaningless to them.
I broke the half plus seven rule a # of times. A few of them with 18-yo grils. The only times it was weird was the first time and also the times they were still in high school kek. 23 and 18 isn't weird by the half plus seven creepy rule, so you're good, unless maybe you're in high school still, in which case it might be weird, but hey it's legal and normal enough
>>16884211 No. When I was 25 I dated a 19 year old. Not I'm 30 and dating a 22 year old. I think the generation gap is a little challenging but also pretty fun to teach each other new things or aspects of pop culture you didn't know.
