17 and 25 year old dating
I'm think more along the lines of emotional maturity because I feel like there's a huge difference between being 20 and around 23.At 23, you learn how to take care of yourself and how to truly be independent.A lot of people are saying that 5 years isn't a lot, but I would disagree here.
It has never been an issue, and in fact, for me was an advantage in a lot of ways. I was born in December 1983 my husband was born in November 1976 we've been together since July 2001 got married April 2005 we're still together, and pretty happy right at the moment. Typically the reason older men don't date teenage women is because they don't relate to them as well as older women, not because there's anything wrong with finding a young woman attractive.
However it's not always easy, a lot of my "friends" isolated me and excluded my boyfriend.
I'm really interested in her and really want to make a move and ask her on a date. We seem to flirt a lot making fun of each other and calling and texting each other a lot talking about life. She's loads of fun and she's also really mature for her age too. I've been in this situation before, but me being the girl.
The important thing is that you can share in that positively with them and not patronise them or lessen the experience.
My friend gets exasperated with his girlfriend because she gets excited over random stuff that means so little to him now.
I don't want to be seen as a perv who's lusting over teenagers. Is the fact that I find her a mix of smart, funny, cute and sexually attractive wrong? I started talking to this person online and we swapped numbers. We got quite close, and talked about being in a relationship but long story short we stopped talking, which I regret now but my phone broke so i've lost contact with him. There's a 10 year age gap between my boyfriend and me.
