It feels that I am doing something "wrong" whereas previously everything went smooth and the age-difference was not noticeable, really. The whole thing still feels not completely right to me.
If you didn't even notice the age difference at first then that's a good sign.
Now we all know a 30 year old that targets 18 year olds is a bit strange but what about 25? Id class 18 as a kid and 25 as an adult, albeit a young adult. Hence, there is a very high percentage of mid-twenties serious people, having their hearts broken by fickle and flash-changing teens.
(you better answer yes) She doesn't need a 25 year old BOYfriend right now. Leave her be and let her start worrying about her future.(you SHOULD have the mentality and maturity now,at your age, to know better)When she turns 28,,,you'll be 35. Or are you just living your life, maybe going to parties, and you met someone you "connect" with and she happens to be 18? In practical terms, not much difference between 23 and 25, but generally, there's a HUGE difference between 16 and 18.
You can date someone as young as half your age plus seven years? It's no wonder that so many women feel that men their own age are too immature.So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. Id say its not illegal, its not immoral and if the 18 year old is mature for her age then its ok. I bet you jokers spend all day waiting for the chance to insult someones character. You think they pick on you, because you don't read enough of the rest of the forums. A few women are fairly mature at 18, but almost ALL of them THINK they are "more mature than their peers", so you can't go by what they say, and usually not by how they act. One of the biggest problems with that particular age gap, is that lots of mid-twenties people are ready to get serious, both emotionally, and practically.So I had a birthday today and I realized I'm still a young adult but I'm really on the verge of just what I would call an "adult". But.....there is a world of difference betwenn 18 and 25. But almost no 18 year olds are even remotely ready, again, even though most of them think they are.And at 19, she is old enough to drink despite the government saying she isn't. So why is there a stigma if a 28 year old is dating a 19 year? Judging from what my other boys have told me is that she's always been fond of older men. But I'm with you on the maturity and mental/knowledge aspect of it. I'm in the working world, and she'd be barely out of high school. My dad is 81 and my mom is 66 and people don't blink an eye.But that's a different subject for a different thread. My dad is 81 and my mom is 66 and people don't blink an eye. They key is whether people of those specific ages can find a true connection. So why is there a stigma if a 28 year old is dating a 19 year? That's not much of an age difference at all, I've got no problem with it.It's because of this urban legend that has gone around forever.Based upon this rule, the only time that a man can date a woman his own age is when he's 14 years old (because half of 14 is seven, and seven plus seven is 14). The first couple of times we met we had a very spontaneous interaction. Just go with the flow and maybe the age difference won't even matter to you anymore. On a related matter, the physics/math/cs department is only a very small world where word goes arround very quickly.I just assumed she was arround my age (perhaps a bit younger, like 22-23 years old). I just found out she is 18-19 years old (first year college, whereas I am almost leaving college) and the whole thing seems so wrong now. If you really like her then why not give it a chance? Even though normally I care little what other people say, it would probably be somewhat inconvenient that people start saying that I was hitting on 18-19 year old girls.
