Is dating someone 3 years younger bad
waitasec - that isn't a downside :)My great grandfather outlived two wives. We like a lot of the same music (I love 70s music) and we have a lot in common, so it's not an issue too much there. i had problems with commitment for years, and the fact that there was the age gap made me even more wary of it, but i soon realised that i cared more for her then i cared about what other people thinkso the only cons are the social stigma, and the fact that we live as far apart as we do until she can move to my city for pros are to numerous to mention, and I am a lucky man to have her Most states have an age of consent of 16. I think it works out pretty well, I'm pretty mature for 24, and when she's just out hanging out she's a little immature for 34, so we meet in the middle. but in the end, unless you both want the same things, it probably won't work out. Long term, if the man is older, there is a significant probability, just based on normal statistics, that he will predecease her by man years, or that she will need to care for him if his health fails over a longer period.the first, his high school sweetheart, died along with his infant son and 3 year old daughter from the Spanish Influenza pandemic. He never married again because he thought he was cursed. The only issue I have with our age difference is energy level. A few have 17 and I can only think of California that has it at 18. Speaking as an older guy, young ladies can make me feel younger, make me feel more virile, and are certainly more attractive from a physical perspective.It depends on whether or not the two of you can meet somewhere in the middle and make something wonderful of your time together while you can. There was the other pros of going out for nice dinners (she made around -0k) and doing stuff and having conversations about things that I'd never really do with a girl of my age.Eventually I ended it before it became too serious, because at 23 I wasn't ready for marriage or kids and I guess at 33 her clock was ticking, although she never mentioned it. One from the 30 yr old just turned 1 this weekend and the other from one of the twins is about to turn 2. Maturity and life experience is def something that hits us both.She also had certain expectations in what she wanted in a relationship having had many more years than I did, and if I would stumble or fall emotionally in the relationship I feel like she was less forgiving than if we had been closer in age.Also being from slightly different generations meant that we had less in common and she would feel a little frustrated with that connection.I'd say one minus that some people aren't mentioning is that other people sometimes make a big deal out of it or make comments that are absolutely unnecessary.Especially if it's an older man dating a younger woman.
I also think it can be hard to be from different generations.Cons: We were at different points in our life in terms of long-term goals.It's not that I didn't want what she wanted, I just wasn't ready for it yet and she was.Women already live longer than men so you are fighting an uphill battle.
