On the rare occasion that I do go out, my boyfriend assumes I revert to my 18-year-old self.Me and my friends aren't dancing on tables after ripping 10 of the cheapest shots in the building.I’ve dealt with constant criticism, shocked reactions, confusion as to why I would go younger and questions about what it’s like.Honestly, I’m sick of people making a big deal about the fact that my boyfriend is younger than me. The second I said his age, the majority of them raised their eyebrows. ” they would ask, confused expressions taking over their faces. I’m a pretty non-confrontational person, so I usually shrug and say, “It’s really not a big deal.” What I really want to do is say, “You’re extremely rude” and walk away, but… The point is, why do people think it sucks to have a younger boyfriend?In terms of attraction, when you connect deeply at this level, attraction can grow. Ladies, you can’t do anything about the men who want a midlife-crisis-Barbie-Doll.So stop looking for super hot chemistry and butterflies when you first meet. Ignore those men, and seek out the guys who want a relationship with someone they can relate to. Truly.◊♦◊Guys, if you’re comparing all the women you date to your ex, or you’re still blaming her for your problems, please get therapy and work this stuff out.His age doesn’t matter to me, it doesn’t matter to him and it has never affected our relationship… When I first started dating my boyfriend, my friends were all super excited for me. I know that typically, girls mature faster than guys, and so a lot of people think younger guys are more likely to be immature and to act like a bad boyfriend. The first time I went on a date with my boyfriend, I’ll admit that I was a tiny bit worried about his age – but my worry was more about what my friends would think than anything else.Everyone asked me the usual questions: what does he look like? I knew they were going to tease me about how old he was, but for me, age had always been nothing more than a number, so I decided that I didn’t care. Our first date was amazing and our second, third and fourth dates were even better. And, sure, he was in sixth grade when I was a freshmen in high school and that sounds creepy. Do you think age difference is a big deal in a relationship?
Warning, ladies: If your boyfriend's fixation on your exes stems from their own inability to let go of an ex, run.
But there are moments when the age gap becomes obvious, and I can't help but wonder if the pros outweigh the cons.
These are some things I wish younger guys knew about dating older women to help make that age gap seem less like a burden and more like a benefit.
To be honest, I iron things with my hair straightener and only do laundry when I run out of underwear.
What makes my boyfriend think I will be better about his?
