13 age dating difference years if cursor not updating rollback is required
I had to look at your profile, because I thought for sure you were a co workers 'boyfriend.' lol.... So please be careful, take things slowly, and do not rush into life changing or irrevocable decisions such as marriage or children, for at least a few more years minimum. Maybe it's better for you both in the long run if you just add in there that you are dating someone already...know, to ward off those mounds of girls who i'm sure are busting your inbox.
She is 20 dating a 28 yr old, and I told her he is too old for her. I think it depends on how mature the younger is, and/or mellow the man is. As for her parents, they're irrelevant, unless she is overly influenced by them in a negative way. When you get to my age (50) 8 years isn't a big age gap. My daughter (21) is getting married in a couple of months to a guy of 32.
I feel like we can connect in so many different levels despite our age difference. It didn't work out because I just wasn't ready for the kind of commitment that he was. The guy I'm currently seeing is about 7 years older than me. My Mama can't wait for me to get to the point where I'm ready to take him home. Then again, she might just want to see who might be able to tame her wild heathen child. If she were 30 and you were 38, I'd have no problem. But I'm sure you're going to torture yourself by going through with it anyway, so good luck.^^My thoughts too!
But he was and is a great guy, it was a great experience, and my family recognized all that easily. *smiling*Age is just a number if you're looking for the same things and are at the same point in your lives. The only issue would be that at "20" she likely has way too much living, learning and life experience ahead of her before being able to have a lasting, successful serious relationship. If there is a plastic on the carpet when you meet them, be careful... People have to learn from their experiences though, even the hard way, ha. One of my friens told me a colleague from her work married a 18 years-old girl, while he was 44 or 45.
Also, another reason for dating an older man is the "been there, done that" I can't tell you how much that comes in handy. Not a responce of "I don't know." Because he hasn't grown up enough to experience anything. I have learned that there are some good things that come out of being with an older man.
If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” – Mark Twain The question is simple, as life expectancy goes up and people take better and better care of themselves, do traditional notions of appropriate age differences in relationships matter?
If age is a factor it's only because you are making it so. At this age, you are still both changing and discovering yourselves - and may learn within a few short years that you really aren't as compatible as you now think.
Aside from that scenario, however, is there any reason that a 30-year-old woman can find love with a 37-year old and not a 44-year-old? Knowing that there are men of that age who are in great shape, physically attractive, interesting and successful is there a reason to categorically exclude these men? And while most people aren’t as attractive as these, it is certainly possible to meet someone significantly older who is sexy and attractive. Women in their 50’s will often narrowly restrict their dating range because they have a fear of meeting and falling in love with an older man – and then having to deal with his health issues.
Men often pursue younger women, even if they aren’t interested in a family. Men certainly have a shorter average lifespan than women, but this doesn’t tell you anything about a particular guy.
You state you feel as if you connect with this young woman on many different levels despite the differences in your ages.
I'm curious why you are asking complete strangers for validation...especially AFTER you've already been dating a 20 year old for the last 5 months. IF you have a successful long term relationship, in 15 to 20 years from now, 8 years is trivial.
