This is the largest age gap I've ever experienced. I'm looking for advice from guys in the same situation, or similar. Edit: Tried asking this question over at /r/askwomen, but a hostile mod deleted the thread, accused me of being combative, and chased me away.. My best example is when we were talking about calculator watches. He groaned and proceeded to remind me that he was a senior in high school when they were popular... When we're toddlers and we say we're 3 and a half.
On my 33rd birthday I had a threesome with a lesbian couple. Somehow the movie Donnie Darko came up in conversation and they both said it was the hipster movie back in high school. When we're in our mid 80's and we just round up to the nearest "old as fuck", and when we're dating someone who's 1b) Young people can party harder than we can. Don't try to keep up.2) She's likely to be less financially stable than you. just broke up with my girlfriend 3 weeks ago, she was 23. We were together for about 10 months or so, but was a year in the making more or less. So they made it impossible to do anything, they didn't want to meet me, and wouldn't even give me a chance, they just tried to always get her to be with them so she couldn't be with me.
Or are the cultural similarities that occur between people of similar ages important enough to be deal-breakers?
Of course, if having children is in your plans and you’re a man, the age of your partner matters.
Finally, there’s also the impact of “the marketplace”.
Like it or not, there are ages and individuals who feel that their value in the dating world is so high that they can have success with a very narrow set of criteria.
I've been in relationships with younger and currently older women and in my experience the younger ones have had wayyyy more drama, and for me the age gap is nowhere near as high as yours or OPs."nearly 22"There's 3 times in life when we round up age.
Expect to pick up the tab a lot.3) High five again I would also add4) The early 20's is a time when people change a lot. We had been friends, I had a girlfriend, she had a boyfriend, and that was that. They didn't care how she felt, they only cared about their perceptions. So what to expect, she would put herself first, mainly because she doesn't know any better.She might not be the same person one year from now. I'm not sure we want the same things from life .. We suddenly both were single at the same time, and since we shared so many common interests, genuinely had a really great time together, could talk for hours on end about anything and everything. So , sadly, despite how great we were, there were challenges We broke up for about 2 weeks, then when we got back together her parents realized we actually liked each other and they accepted me and us. IN her eyes she wasn't doing anything wrong by doing things without me, never involving me and taking mixed sex vacations without me.(Before you say I am an idiot, I had no reason to suspect cheating, she isn't like that, Ive known her for a while..) but she just didnt see relationships the way I did.This means you get to box up all your so-called failures as if they never happened. Perhaps it’s because I don’t believe in what I look at. Even so, I’ll play along…the embarrassment of failure is way easier than the responsibility that comes with success. Technically speaking, any outcome that didn’t occur the way you thought it would means you had faulty expectations. We only grow as a society when people choose to be different.Unfortunately, this means you box up your successes too. Faulty expectations arise for two reasons—you can’t see the future and you developed those expectations without all the necessary information. You’ll never grow as a person without doing the same.It might be easy to think of a very attractive 25-year-old man or woman saying, “I can date whomever I want, and I only want people who are within two years of my age either way.” While any person is free to do what they like when looking for a relationship, is it to the benefit of the searcher to cast in such a narrow fashion?
