I have someone I'm very interested in, but he's younger than me. He's sweet, works as a babysitter and as a maintenance guy at a bakery. He lives in an apartment right now with a friend of his. He seems like such a great guy, I like him alot, something most say is a bad thing is his age. He's 22, I'm 38.
So how young is too young? Or doesn't age matter?
I don't think I would go there, personally. But there are a lot of relationships out there that work despite an age difference, so it's hard to know. I guess it would just depend on the individuals and their feelings for each other.
I couldn't date someone that much younger than me...maybe that much older than me but definitely not a 22 year old if I was 38. That's just my opinion though, not trying to be rude. Everyone's situations and circumstances are different and this is just from the outside looking in.
I wouldnt think youre being rude to give your opinion, thats why i posted it. If I had been afraid of what I'd hear than I wouldn't have posted it.
Now maybe if you filled it with curse words, then that'd be rude hahah
Well, speaking from someone who's 43, I could not imagine dating someone 16 years younger than me! I'd feel like I was dating my son, lol! I'm sure he's a nice guy, but long term? I don't know any 22-year-old men who would want to attach themselves to a 38-year-old woman with two kids. Sorry, not trying to be rude - just realistic. He's just starting his life, and is in a completely different place than you are. You need someone with life experience who is proven rock solid. This is a kid with a couple of menial jobs who's living with his friend. I'd look elsewhere.
