21 year old man dating 26 year old woman
But that would be a fleeting thought and I honestly wouldn't think too much about it after that. moving in together would be considered normal for 37 year old but I know I wasn't ready to live with my partner at 22, or having kids or slowing down your social life etc. Each situation is unique--my friend's parents are still mad about each other thirty years later, and they are fifteen years apart. I've always dated older men, and based solely on my experience, the further away they were in age, the more likely they were trying to "stay young." This doesn't necessarily mean that they weren't looking for a relationship, but it was more the aspect of living a carefree life with fewer serious responsibilities. Whether or not they want to mature with you is the question. But I'm not going to judge someone who dates out of their age range. Go for it, but keep your wits about you, as you would with any relationship. Their parents are best friends and so for years we're practically brought up together.
It would raise some flags, but not be an automatic WTF. My mother was 12 years younger than my father, so not that different really. Some of the things I'd be concerned about: And so on. If I learned that a similar-age acquaintance of mine was dating someone in their early 20s, I'd want to see how they interact and reserve judgement.Now, I don’t always agree with all of the conclusions that Rudder draws from his Ok Cupid data.Once upon a time, he was trying to illustrate why free dating sites were “better” than paid dating sites, but it was clear that he was advocating for Ok Cupid.but then almost any relationship he has is, he got issues... In fact, one of the few words in English for which virtually no other language has an equivalent is "fair." It's a uniquely Anglo-Saxon concept, and virtually no other culture in the world recognizes it.Had the same situation, same age difference, same ages (22 and 37) only she was the 37 year old.
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.
