As we mature and get hurt, or scammed, we start to get a bit of doubt that grows. Dating someone younger can revive your positive outlook on relationships and help you connect to your hopeful nature. On the flip side, dating someone older can give you a genuine feeling of being appreciated and adored in a relationship. There are several bedroom kinks and fetishes that include age-gap topics. Dating someone older means they have some experience and picked up a few very satisfying tricks along the way.
On the other hand, being older with a younger partner is pretty hot and can boost your ego a little bit. Sexual connection is a vital part of any relationship, and a lot of age-gap stereotypes lend to the bedroom area of dating. It might seem like this section rivals the one directly above.
A lot of people start to favor long-term dating and the potential of marriage in the future as they get older. Around , serious relationships start to take precedence in your hopes. A relationship between two commitment oriented people works great with this kind of age gap. Any relationship that can overcome the judgment, differences, and obstacles thrown at them is a successful relationship!
The passion between young people 25 and below is unrivaled. They are eager to make things work and their differences complement each other. As probably the biggest issue in age-gap dating, maturity stands to give your relationship the biggest test of time.
Though only 5 years between the two, a lot of personalities and mental changes are made in that period. The two of you will differ on many subjects, handle conflict in different ways, and approach problems and needs unique to your age. Someone who is 18 may be quicker to anger, and less understanding, whereas a year-old knows how to pick their battles. On the other hand, being older can cause you to be a bit condescending. Both partners can be at fault for a failure to connect maturely, despite age.
Sometimes an age-gap can benefit a couple since women tend to mature quicker on average. At 18 and 23 though, things are still pretty murky, so it will take some tender loving care to move past this obstacle together. Many year-olds are in the midst of their education. Some may have years yet ahead of them when it comes to college, but someone who is 23 is either done or nearly there. Conflicting schedules due to work and class differences as well as the stress and pressure of finals, studying, and peers will be aspects to think about.
Being a student is much different than functioning in the working world, and many students work part-time, as well. Busy, stressful lifestyles and the classic sleepless schedule of a college student could put additional strain to your relationship. Someone older also probably has better spending habits.
Unfortunately, these major financial differences are a source of conflict for several age-gap couples. Teenagers are less strict with their money, and often have fewer bills and less income. Being 23 brings in a whole opposite end of the economy. Rent, utilities, loans… there is a lot to pay for, and hard work to fund that life. Someone younger might not understand, and someone older may feel irritated being saddled with a lot of financial responsibility.
This is not a problem that easily goes away with age, either. Money problems are a leading source of conflict for several couples, regardless of age. A lot of care is put into the following and understanding drama, and this age group often tends to be more involved in social media. As you age, the drama does, too. It becomes less important and not as distracting in your 20s, and continues to get better.
An older partner may be less interested in the petty drama that is considered monumental by a younger half. There is also different kinds of drama to worry about in these two age groups. What was once considered important in your late teens is probably not in the same priority zone in your mids. Everywhere you go, someone is going to look down their nose at your relationship. I used to date a 26 year old when I was I think it depends on the year old, or both individuals involved, as to maturity and so forth.
I don't think that's a big age difference. If the 18 year old were still in high school that would be different. When I was 18 my boyfriend was Not my best idea, but there wasn't much difference maturity wise. A 23 yr old woman dating an 18 yr old male sounds a little pitiful. The other way around, sounds about right to me. At first when I saw the post, I was wondering why there would be a question.. Are YOU one of these people 18 or 23 year old and maybe a parent is having a hard time?
Didn't know if maybe that was the reason you asked to see if other people differed from what maybe a parent said. I think the age difference is fine. I don't see that much if a difference since they are both in college.
If one was in high school then that might be more of a challenge. Originally Posted by Padgett2. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum. It is free and quick.

My ex, who I'm still kinda talking to is 23 and I'm 18 going on She's an adult and sounds like a good catch so I would say go for it and don't worry about the age. The only reason it would ever be a problem is because of immaturity of the younger person involved but you've already said she's mature so no worries:. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a 23 year old man dating a 18 year old woman you guys are adults.
Well she's She is of age to date a 23 year old guy. Idk if age still matters in this world today. As long as the man is mature and respects her. But think about it. She's just reaching adulthood. But in my opinion I think it's okay. Son, I've got ten bloody years on you, and I'm engaged to a bleedin' eighteen-year-old- nevermind about just dating her- we're way past that bloody stage, and we're happy enough, so I think that answers your question, old son!
Come what may, good luck, pal. Peace and love. Be lucky. It's legal. Hey there! Sign In Register. Mikes Mike Posts: 1, Forum Member. My female mates new bf is 23 she being the gf is I don't see a problem with the age gap but one of her mates does, is it a big deal? That is not a big deal. RiverChelt Posts: 5, Forum Member.
I hope it's not a big deal I'm currently 'woo-ing' a very lovely 18 year old and I am I don't think it's a big deal. Now, if she was 8, that would be a big deal. I think its completely fine.

The equation is anything more than 1. This is related to the rate of growth in terms of maturity, intelligence and generational gaps and experience of generational gaps.
So for an 18 year old, that would be For a 16 year old, that would be For a 23 year old, that would be For a 25 year old, that would be For a 30 year old, that would be 39 years old. Although sometimes I feel like the older one in the relationship, he has a lot more energy than me. Kablamo wrote: ».
