Guys is it ok for me to date an 18 year old? I'm 22 and wont finish university until next summer, and since all girls my age are officially better than me as of now by way of them having a degree, they'd never settle for me.
My friend from high school wont graduate uni until 2018 and he went that route, but I wanna know what social consequences I'll have.
>he fell for the "men should date woman their own age" meme
if its legal, do it
For some reason I've met more than a few 19-20 year olds that I ended up having feelings for.
19-21 seems to be in that sweet spot between cringey teenager and roastie.
Don't fall for roasty shame tactics.
They enjoyed the fruits of their youth and now they hit the wall and are trying to shame men their own age into dating them.
Nothing gets a roasty toastier than man their own age dating young beautiful women.
it's because you aren't the best man for your age group
girls your age have better options to sleep around with and date
girls younger than you don't have a bf who can buy them beer and is "mature", and therefore makes them look more mature
girls older than you are trying to recapture their youth
they remember dating a chad at your age, and since young chads are banging young girls and old chads are banging young girls, they settle for the best they can that makes them feel young
the whole point is young girls want to look old and old girls want to look young
no girl ever wants to look like she's her current age ever, so they date men who make them look and feel accordingly
Im going back to school because I got a worthless degree.
I look 23-25 to a lot of people though, so maybe I still have a chance.
Probably not though, because Im still pretty socially retarded even though Im not a complete recluse anymore.
>Anyone older or younger than me is more receptive
I'm the same way. Should I feel bad about this?
i won't lie to you anon, if you go after 18 year olds as a 28 year old you're gonna look creepy as fuck. especially if you don't have a large group of friends you'll just be known as the old creep
31 year old career woman here, is dating a younger guy a thing that happens often? I never really started dating until now and the guys my age are seemingly balding with a good start on their beer bellies and their dicks don't work very well anymore, also they're dull and lethargic, been dreaming about a fling with a young man to do nothing but have fun with
if he wants to get a girl he needs to have a good social standing. if he's known as the class creep who goes for girls a decade younger than him how will that help his social standing?
thats why he should care about how he'll look, obviously
>is dating a younger guy a thing that happens often?
When I was 23 and a student at uni I dated a 33 year old single mother for a couple of months.
>the guys my age are seemingly balding with a good start on their beer bellies
That's what she would always complain to me about.
>been dreaming about a fling with a young man to do nothing but have fun with
Go for it. It was a lot of fun for the both of us.
You know when you're watching a gameshow and the contestant gets the answer wrong but you know it?
You know how you think 'wow, they're dumb that was an easy one'?
Its the same thing here, chad has social standing (he's the one who knew the answer), so he thinks its easy to get a gf and everyone should know how.
I hope that made sense
In college the 18-22 yr girls avoided the older men returning to college like the plague but there were also older girls returning to college as well. He's probably too good for them though.
I'm sorry but if you think that college/uni is any different from high school it just shows how you haven't been.
It may be less severe but cliques still exist and everyone has the same mentality. You know why? bc it's only been a year since they were high school students. people don't change that fast
you're ignoring the fact that highschool students are still highschool students. you can argue all you like but a 28 year old guy will be known as a creep by people if he only tries to get 18 year olds. prove me wrong
Im 20 and Im dating a 14 year old. Follow your dreams my good man. Why would you date some washed up whore?
>is probably a virgin
>will fall in love with you because she doesnt know any other man
>can mold her hobbies, interests and ideals because she's at the age where she is shaped by her environment
>roasties will accuse you of being a pedo
>she is frigid for the first few years
where do you live senpai?
feels bad saying these things but in my small experience it's true, and i was told men age well and was excited to start dating because of this... it's not hard to go to the gym 3 times a week
This guy is right. When I was 18 in college I missed orientation. I would quickly discover that everyone had formed tight cliques that no amount of initiative or approaches on my end would allow me to break through.
I tried events, clubs , etc but there were cliques there as well that clearly didn't want me in on their friend time.
Shit was mad gay. I didnt make any friends. Managed to date a girl but that was out of pure luck of me getting to approach her in the right situation that she wasnt surrounded by friends.
In high school at least you had tight knit year long courses that you could use to buddy up with someone, which is what I did. College courses were way too fast paced and organized for that. There was no down time that you could use, and again, even in the classes the cliques were strong.
I'm not even exaggerating this either. Maybe it was just my uni though, who knows. It was a pretty small college and campus
I'm 23 with a 19 year old gf, never gotten shit for it and wouldn't care if I did. Just don't care about what other people think because they're most likely pieces of shit who have done things much worse than what they judge you for.
you're not even making the shadow of a point
>you're ignoring the fact highschool students are highschool students
vacuous meaningless commentary. also inaccurate, because once they've graduated they are no longer highschool students. what makes them highschool students is the fact they are in highschool. that's strike one
>a 28 year old guy will be known as a creep if he tries to get 18 year olds
you've said it, but you've not shown how that will be the case. I guess it would be like WoW and the server will just "know"? or could it be this is real life and world events don't trigger cross-server chat announcements. that's strike two
>prove me wrong
all you've done is make a wild claim based on your own irrelevant, possibly imaginary college experience. there's nothing to prove wrong. there's nothing here to begin with
Also forgot to add
Unless you're super ugly, a manlet, or overweight, you are automatically seen as a chad. You are taller, stronger and smarter than all the guys her own age, and probably making a lot more money than them.
> i was told men age well and was excited to start dating because of this
A lot of men do age well but unfortunately for you the ones that do prefer to date women in their early-mid twenties.
>Older man, younger woman is the most natural.
If the older man is advanced in life and well off, yes. If he's as broke and sad as the other guys with the added bonus of being old it doesn't work out too well for him.
That reality is why I will probably why I will end up doing nothing.
I dont even know any women my own age except for my boss at my part time job.
Being a loser socially and economically seems to result in an inescapable cycle.
>not developing good social skills by the time you make it through college means you cant get a half decent job if you aren't a STEM major
>If you cant get a half decent job, you fall behind socially even more
>you finally come to the point where most people your age in the same situation are either druggie losers or mlp fans.
>you end up stuck being the creepy old guy and/or a total loser.
I'm 30 dating an 18 year old.
I can tell the age difference, however it is fun.
Plus she's all of 5'3" with 34DD and 115 pounds so physically it's fantastic and add in birth control.
The biggest challenge I've seen is being able to keep the ship afloat during the upcoming stages of life changes.
If you're into each other, just go for it.
>they are no longer highschool students
ok so they were highschool students maybe a couple of months ago? they're still the same people with the same mentality bc you don't magically mature when you go to college
>but you've not shown how that will be the case.
yes i have. people talk, gossip. word will get around that the guy in their class is a creep who tries to get younger girls. I don't understand how you don't get this
>all these mmo analogies
what the actual fuck are you talking about
you obviously don't know anything about college, its the same shit in a different environment. my point is that he will be labelled a creep if he pursues 18 year olds. you're being willfully ignorant to avoid trying to refute this.
>>not developing good social skills by the time you make it through college means you cant get a half decent job if you aren't a STEM major
STEM major two degrees here. Even for us you need to have good social skills to get a job. You cant escape it
so very far from me but you are lucky to live in a nice warm place
this may be true, but where are they hiding? almost literally never see men who are attractive and not young and tight bodied (and i spend lots of time in public)... apart from the odd silver fox who is likely 20 years married
i think he's completely right (bc he's agreeing with my post), except I didn't miss orientation. I made a large group of friends but I've seen people who obviously missed the boat. its not fair but desu i don't care enough to reach out two years into my course.
cliques exist in college. anyone who tells you they don't are normies who don't want to feel bad about ignoring the people who haven't made friends.
>if you have game and you arent an autist
JUST WHERE THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE!?!?!?
I BET YOU THINK ROASTIES ARE GOOD PEOPLE DEEP DOWN TOO!!!!
>I've seen people who obviously missed the boat
wait wait wait
HS senior here, yes I'm 18, and I go to college in fall. Does that mean if i miss orientation I'm fucked?
Holy shit dude
It probably will, yes. You might make friends on your course later if youre lucky and outgoing but do not, for the love of god, miss orientation. Think of getting into groups of 4 in gym and there being an odd number. people avoid looking at the odd one out bc they don't want to feel bad so they ignore them.
>what the fuck is online
Yes, remember to settle. Girls arent "hot" before 16. So settle eith one thats kind of cute and by the time she's 18 then you'll have probs a 7/10
so it's literally high school 2.0? I only get one chance to make friends? That sounds literally retarded. My social skills aren't even that great. Is orientation crowed? If so I might not be able to do well
It's still possible to make friends in college if you have to work in groups or something similar, but yeah. Pretty much all of my friends in college were people from high school.
>In high school at least you had tight knit year long courses that you could use to buddy up with someone, which is what I did. College courses were way too fast paced and organized for that. There was no down time that you could use, and again, even in the classes the cliques were strong.
This right here. If any youngfags are reading this, when you start college you need to start a social group at orientation.
Just find one Chad and do whatever it takes to make him/her like you. If you succeed, you're in. Make sure you make the best impression to all of the Chad's friends and you're in. You're set for the rest of college assuming you dont reveal your autism
Dont blow it like i did. If you miss orientation, not amount of social prowess will save you, except maybe your roommates if you're lucky.
Friend of a friends girlfriend.
She's still in high school. It's kinda weird picking her up and sometimes dripping her off.
She has a ddlg fetish which we also have as a lifestyle kink here and there. She asks me to collar her before we go out.
Anyways. We like the same stuff, music, games and anime etc etc. We got to talking about the shared interests and then more personal topics came up.
Eventually we started dating.
I make 50k a year and live with a roommate and an asshole but cool black cat.
that post was so normal it hurt.
I have a feeling it may be the case.
However the sex is great and she cooks me food when she comes over and we make fun of tumblr idiots. When it goes bad I have no qualms about walking away.
Most people are walking relationship time bombs anyways. Just hoping it isn't the case, but if it is it's back to the drawing board.
>we like the same stuff, music, games and anime
>as an eighteen-year-old girl
I mean, mad props for the pussy, but damn son
get some taste
