I believe that at least for a while, my parents will be strongly disapproving.
What is the best way to deal with that, and are age differences in a relationship really all that taboo?
I just feel jn todays society when a man of this age will not even consider a woman his age and focusen in young girls is not right maybe Im wrong but I am a mother and Id be very upset if my 18 year old came in with a man my age. However there is a 15 year age gap between me and my husband.
My mom is only 4 years older than him so looking at that perspective I don't know. Not all guys that are older than the female are total pervs though some are, just like not all young women are immature, some are more mature for their age.
I'm curious to see what others think: if you had friends in this type of relationship, would you think "She's a BABY! My parents had an 18 year age difference (she was 16 and he was 34 when they married [and he was her high-school teacher]- this was rural Alabama in the early 1950s when that wasn't so scandalous) and the marriage lasted for 30 years. (It wasn't a happy union, it's just that its unhappiness got tenure.) How much of my parents' unhappiness was based in the age difference I don't know, but I can't shake the feeling that when a guy goes after a gal half-his-age, however else he may justify it the lust for firm young flesh is high on the list of REAL motivations (not to say that he can't be intellectually attracted as well). Maybe you would do well to adopt my motto: I don't care WHAT you do, as long as you don't do it to me. at a small Liberal Arts College in New England, I'll say this. On the other hand, this does seem a bit icky to me. Before I started dating men twenty years older than me, I dated men the same age as myself, and one much younger.
" or would you think "one can't control where the heart will lead"? My husband's second wife was 17 years younger than him. I'm honestly not sure what motivates a 19 year old girl to go after a guy twice her age (it's definitely not money with this kid as judging by her car and clothes she's from a very well-to-do family). Or what I tell my kids- you worry about YOURself, and let others worry about THEMselves. Wht he is doing is very taboo among the upper echelon of college profs. It is not advisable to date students at your institution, and though I have personal objections to the age difference, in this situation it is more of a professional indecency. I'm honestly not sure what motivates a 19 year old girl to go after a guy twice her age (it's definitely not money with this kid as judging by her car and clothes she's from a very well-to-do family). Makes me wonder if this girl knows what she is doing, but hey! ;) In conclusion, this is none of our business, so let's just give a little shudder and forget about it.
He’s a good man, who takes good care of me, is well-educated and has a good job.
Data reveals truths that we might not want to say out loud.she's certainly cute and seems really nice, but I can't get over the age difference.I'm not going to say anything to him or her about it because it's none of my business, but it majorly bothers me (two levels: he's still a professor and she's still a student even if the college doesn't have a dating ban [unless students are in the professor's class] and the fact that she's by some definitions a minor and he's closing in on middle age]).

My boyfriend turned 30 a few days ago and I turn 19 in a couple months. You can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram.Of course, when you flip the data around and look at what age men find women most physically appealing, you get an appalling answer. It’s shocking to see on paper, but not so surprising if you’ve ever talked to an actual man, read a men’s magazine or looked at porn intended for men.Instead of the female curve, which suggests that 34-year-old women like 34-year-old men, men find 20 year-old women most physically appealing, no matter how old they were. This doesn’t mean that 40 year old men want to MARRY that 20 year old woman, only that they find her the most physically appealing.Nairaland Forum / Nairaland / General / Romance / Guys - Would You Consider Dating A 19 Year Old If You Were In Your 30s?(22406 Views) When A Girl Is Dating A Guy Who Is Not Ready For Marriage / Guys See Why You Should Consider Dating A Calabar Girl / You're old If U Had Ever Drank Frm Dis Thermocool Freezer (1) (2) (3) (4) i will not even date a 19 year old but marry her if shes worth itwhat has age gotta do with this.whats the difference between a 19 year old and a 25 year old? she will get matured with [email protected] go look him profile?make ur eye no go see rubbish otkb417:i will not even date a 19 year old but marry her if shes worth itwhat has age gotta do with this.whats the difference between a 19 year old and a 25 year old? she will get matured with [email protected] go look him profile?make your eye no go see rubbish o Well, i dnt really see anything wrong wit it if the girl is matured enough to take up her responsiilities as a wife and ready to forgo her freedom years.
