The most important thing in any relationship is the willingness to allow each other to grow; sadly this means you may not stay together. We are both interested in having children, just want more stability and for her to be generating a decent income. I make enough for us both, but she wants her own personal security which i completely understand and want her to have. A lot of people are saying that 5 years isn't a lot, but I would disagree here. At 20 she's either going to still be in college or still be working some shit retail job.
You're probably done with college and working a good full time job.
Undressed: What’s the Deal With the Age Gap in Relationships?
Can you be sure that by time you're that she'll be graduated and have a good job that could help support you two? Or will she just end up working shit jobs for the rest of her life while you foot the bill?
She kept talking about a lot of shit that I just refused to care about and it wasnt great. I'm not going to lie I was hesitant. She was great but she was also only a sophomore. Now she didn't look like it but still. In the end I decided I would let her and I determine if we were on the right maturity level. Moral of the story, look past what your dick is thinking and determine if you are actually at the same point.
My Boyfriend is six years older than me, I'm 18 he's We have a healthy relationship because we can both learn from each other and he can give good advice and support for things he's already been through. However it's not always easy, a lot of my "friends" isolated me and excluded my boyfriend. But once you get past 20 it's not such a big deal. It probably won't be forever because by the time you start thinking of buying a house, she's thinking of going on spring break.
Going out to bars.
Is it ok for a 20 year old guy to date a 25 year old girl
It's something I never really thought of when I was dating my ex I was 26, she was 20 but when my buddies and I would hang out, she couldn't go. And that pissed her off. Dan Savage's campsite rule. Why does this question even matter? I mean, come on.
Age has little to do with whether a relationship will last. Have you see the divorce rate? The only thing that matters is if you're both in it for the same reasons and if you're in it for something longer than a fart in the wind, if you can both get along and enjoy each others' company.
Older men often date younger women, but everyone can benefit when the age gap is reversed
Other than that, age is meaningless precisely because people create this myth that closer age means longer lasting relationships, when all the data points to this being completely baseless. It is a non-factor for how long a relationship lasts. Just go ask all your friends how many relationships they've been in and ask how close in age they were to their past partners. I think everyone needs to take a good long hard look at perpetuating this myth that age gaps cause relationship issues. Age doesn't do a thing. Personality is something you're born with and doesn't change much over time, because you have a core from your genetics, and modifications of that core from environment.
You can run into a 21 year old who is as mature as a 30 year old or a 21 year old who is as mature as a pre-teen. Age definitely means something when there are places you are not allowed to go to if under 21 i. I would have a very hard time dating someone under But she was very serious, a scientist.
Both were very interesting men. I recommend asking her out. If she is fine with it, it might go well or might not, for lots of reasons, one with two people having different maturities, but that is not always a clear difference, and the others, because things may not work out re other matters, as with anyone of any age. A good cry on the train - Discussion by Joe Nation. Yes, and there should be a lot more age gaps like this! They are both married approx. Five years with kids and they are very happy. Of course when people heard the Shidduch their first reaction was of total disbelief….
With the Shidduch crisis today, people should be more open to this idea and help establish more Yiddishe families for Klal Yisroel. So this 64 year old dude is taking a college chemistry course, and his lab partner is a 24 year old girl. And he likes her.

So one day he is by the doctor, and asks the doctor: Off the bat I would date a girl that is three years older or younger. Those limits can be pushed though, depending on the circumstances. What difference does 2 or 3 or 4 years age difference either way make? Now I would never have thought about a woman 10 years my senior.
