Okay, so I’ll try to make this as simple as possible.
I’m not planning on dating until I’m older. & I would never date a guy if he wasn’t “legal” haha… But let’s say it’s a situation where the guy is maybe 4-5 years younger than the girl.
Obviously, if the girl was 18 & the guy was 13 that’d be extremely weird.
But what if you were both older, & the guy was say 18 & the girl was 22… (the guy of course being super mature). Is that weird?
I’ve heard a lot of my friends say they think it’s weird & they’d never date a guy younger than them–especially that big of an age difference, & people always make fun of girls & label them “cougars”. Lol! But if it’s a God-centered relationship, what do you guys think? Just curious! 🙂

I don’t think there’s anything weird about it at all, as long as the younger member of the couple is legal. (I have actually been waiting to date on purpose until the guys younger than me are old enough. :)) In my family, the girls are almost always older than the guys, so to me it isn’t a big deal at all. Due to my personality and being a late bloomer, I figure I’ll probably marry a guy a couple years younger than me, and my family jokes I have to because it’s a family tradition. 🙂

It’s not weird at all, as long as it’s a relationship that honors God.

The reason most women marry older guys is because guys usually mature emotionally more slowly than girls.

But that’s not true for every man, of course, so I wouldn’t worry about it 🙂

Lol My parents have been married 20 happy and amazing years and my day is 4 years younger! My parents met in their late 20s and earlier 30s though but I think when you’re older age isn’t as weird as when you’re young. As long as you love each other and know this is the person for you then I don’t think it’s a big deal!

I mean. My best friend’s boyfriend is two years younger than her, and they’ve got a super healthy relationship going. Also, as people get older, differences like that become smaller, because people change at a slower rate as they get old. My Nana’s eight years older than her husband, and there’s not much wrong there. But when you’re 74 and 66, it doesn’t seem so big a gap.

I don’t think its weird. My friends mom is five years older than her dad. Just as long as they’re legal and mature. And I have a crush on someone younger than me:)

I really don’t think there is too much wrong with that… Obviously make sure it’s ok with your parents and his, but if everyone’s good and it’s a healthy relationship, then I don’t think it’s wrong.

Theres nothing wrong with it in my opinion. It just depends on the couple and the people. Not everything works for every couple. Tecnically my relationship is illegal, im 19 and my boyfriend has already turned 17 this year. And im turning 20 in September. But honestly, we dont even notice, its not a factor in our relationship. Hes pretty mature (when he wants to be) for his age emotionally. And most of the time were just playing around and being goofy, but we can also have deep conversations.

I’ve always connected with people a few years younger than me, my best friends have always been younger than me, and so have all my boyfriends. I guess i just relate with them easier i have no idea. I’ve always wanted my husband to be older than me, because i am a pretty mature person, always have been. So i wanted someone that could keep up with me emotionally and in a understanding way. And since guys mature slower, i wanted someone older. But with my current boyfriend i realized that i NEED someone like him thats completely goofy and crazy, so that i can relax a little more. And he brings the fun and carefree side out of me.

Im really trying hard not to start ranting about him and how awesome him is because thats not what this forum is about. XD But yeah, age is just a number for me. 😛
