Dating Younger People - Age Gap - Secret Hookup!
Currently dating a guy a year younger, so yep I do prefer guys a few years older though. Follow 4 I once dated someone that was 2 years younger than me, but it didn't last too long.
It wasn't because he was click or something like that, it's just we didn't have many things in common. I still consider him a friend though, and I prefer more mature guys anyway. Follow 5 I used to feel the same way Before we started dating I thought it was weird, but in the end, the connection between us has completely outweighed it.
So I'd probably say, it really does depend on the person in question. Follow 6 Follow 7 My boyfriend is two years younger than me so yes. I probably wouldn't have when I was younger though. Follow 8 Nah,would feel so wrong. Follow 9 I once had a thing with this guy that was younger than me. When I started hanging out with him I just knew that he was perfect for me. I found out he was about a year younger than me.
I honestly don't think it matters because when you have a connection with someone, you have a connection and age doesn't change that. Follow 10 I prefer older women, I find younger girls to be too immature. Follow 11 When I get older it wouldn't matter really if the guy was a year or two younger, however at this stage of my life no I wouldn't date someone younger than me.
As we would be at completely different points in our life which would likely put a strain on any possible relationship. Original post by SophieSmall When I get older it wouldn't matter really if the guy was a year or two younger, however at this stage of my life no I wouldn't date someone younger than me.
Follow 13 I prefer older women. Though I've never seekd an actual long term relationship with any of them that I've met. Follow 14 Original post by Anonymous Yeah i'm 16 atm when I was 15 some thirteen year olds wanted to go out with me I would have went out with one of them ngl but the age difference!

Honestly I feel like a hot mess bum in comparison. Original post by SophieSmall Yeah at these kinds of ages age gaps make a big difference.
You realize that most people think that age equals maturity. Whomever started that cougar and milf shit should die in a fire. Avatars by Sterling Adventures. I think it's important mostly to respect her mental age too though. Anyway, in my early-mid 30s I dated a guy very seriously for several years who was about four years younger.
For a start for you there is legal consent for sex, dating someone younger than you could get you in trouble. For me it would be a matter of educational stage barriers, If I dated someone younger than me then they would either still be in A-levels or behind me in university.
Then there is the problem of them not going to the same university and distance, then there is the problem of placement years which often can't be done in the same university town ect.
Hopefully she doesn't think the same way I do. Because the article, if I'm thinking of the same one you are, was about how awesome women in their 30s are, and how dumb it is that guys don't tend to date older women. Currently dating a guy a year younger, so yep I do prefer guys a few years older though.
It's just too much hassle and stress to date someone at a different stage in their life at this point. Follow 17 Original post by Anonymous Yeah I think if I had sex with them then it's illegal, idk about dating them Follow 18 A wise old woman once said. Only applies if you're under 18, i'm told. Follow 19 I'm 18, and definitely wouldn't be in a relationship with a 16 year old, but I'm not convinced it would be that much of a big deal if, say, I was 27 or something.
I did a gap year before going to uni and my birthday is read more of the earliest in the academic year, so I'm almost 2 years older than the majority of my cohort at uni.
