How young is too young dating
Do be understanding I can get kind of defensive when dating older guys, worried that some might see me as another notch on the bedpost, or fresh meat to pass the time until someone more serious comes along.
She may be younger, but her feelings are just as genuine as yours. Do establish boundaries In some rather obvious ways you’re at different stages of life, so if you're just enjoying a fling make sure she isn't shopping for wedding dresses.
but I extended that to 6 for my ex when I found out he was turning 28 just after I turned 22. I fall in the "go for it, as long as you disclose your possible intent to leave in a few months". I try to date people who are at the same stage in their life as me, regardless of actual age.
So well I'm hesitant to say yes at first cause in my opinion i'd see alot of potential reasons why a relationship with that much age difference could potentially not be a meeting of minds... Many many girls that are that young are only interested in dating short term anyway, and you could be the perfect candidate for her. Quit worrying about what society may or may not think is right for you, and learn what IS right for you. That kind of self awareness & confidence is uber-liberating. My only "rule" is that he be closer to my age than my Dad's... Though, my Dad would probably find it hilarious (he's weird like that).
She’s a woman, not a child, after all - even if she is your daughter’s age. “When I was your age...” “Young people are so ____.” “Oh you weren't even BORN when this album was released.” “You were still a toddler in 1989?
E Yes, it's gross and it doesn't need to be pointed out. Don’t assume you know better Keep a check on your tone; is it supportive or patronising?
If you don’t make it an issue, chances are it won’t be.
Do dress well Someone once told me a useful rule when it comes shopping for your age.
3) If I ask myself what I'm honestly looking for, it isn't sex, which is usually what people have a problem with. However I do know that after we were dating for a while, I'd definitely have a hard time holding back from going for a physical relationship as well. I'd be hesitant only cause she's 18 every situation is different but you've got to make sure you upfront/straightforward, being honest about your potential taking off in 6 months and I've never really thought about the 1/2 your age plus 7 thing...
This could be a reason for *OR* against:4) I don't know if I'll be in the same city in 6 months, so I may never know what may have been if I don't go for it now. all I know is I like to date somewhat older men simply for maturity reasons among a few other things and I tend to have a 5 year rule...
You may think you have all the answers, Mr Worldly Wise, but remember that anything you can do I can make into an 18-day argument that you do not yet have the life experience to deal with.
Don't expect too much Older dudes sometimes complain (to me at least) that the older women they know are too sedentary and set in their ways.
