I’m dating a guy who is three years younger than me.
This is something that, for whatever reason, almost always illicits weird reactions from people.
his dry sense of humor kills you, and dang those eyes!
And then you learn that the same year you graduated college, he was wrapping up his freshman year—of high school.
Younger men are as adventurous outside of the bedroom as they are inside it, and they’ll bring out a more youthful, vibrant side of you, says Lori Bizzoco, founder and executive editor of Cupids “He will see you as smarter and worldlier, so he’ll want to please you, not just physically but emotionally and intellectually,” she says.
“He’ll come up with creative date ideas that bring back romance and youth, and make you feel empowered and appreciated.”When you enter into a new relationship, it’s no secret you’re bringing former boyfriends along with you. “Men can have preconceived notions about women and relationships based on past experiences,” says Samantha Daniels, a professional matchmaker and president of Samantha's Table Matchmaking.
I mean, sure, there are some things that are different about dating someone who isn’t your age, but for the most part it’s really not that big of a deal. The most common reaction to the age difference is total shock, followed by the question “But how did you meet? Sometimes when you’re with him and all of his friends, you might feel a little out of place. You learn that people are rude enough to ask questions like, “But why would you date someone younger than you?
Any girl who has dated a younger guy knows that other people tend to make this situation more awkward than it should be. ” Oh, I don’t know, I was trolling the local middle school and put a spell on him. ” Because I want to, and because I’m not judgmental. You realize that there’s a big double standard – most people won’t blink an eye about an older guy dating a slightly younger girl, but if it’s the other way around, watch out. After all, you didn’t exactly grow up at the same time. Lately, I’ve seen a lot of questions from you guys about dating a younger person.His age doesn’t matter to me, it doesn’t matter to him and it has never affected our relationship… When I first started dating my boyfriend, my friends were all super excited for me. I know that typically, girls mature faster than guys, and so a lot of people think younger guys are more likely to be immature and to act like a bad boyfriend. The first time I went on a date with my boyfriend, I’ll admit that I was a tiny bit worried about his age – but my worry was more about what my friends would think than anything else.Everyone asked me the usual questions: what does he look like? I knew they were going to tease me about how old he was, but for me, age had always been nothing more than a number, so I decided that I didn’t care. Our first date was amazing and our second, third and fourth dates were even better. And, sure, he was in sixth grade when I was a freshmen in high school and that sounds creepy. Do you think age difference is a big deal in a relationship? I had several best friends who were a few years younger than me and I got along with them better than I did with some people my own age. Over the last two years, I’ve barely given our age difference a second thought – in fact, I usually forget that he’s younger than me. But the more important thing is that we get along really well and he’s my best friend. So, to all of the people who continue to make fun of me for “being a cougar” and going younger: you sound lame. If you’re going to let an age difference of a few years stop you from getting to know someone legitimately cool, that’s something you need to work on.
