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'm glad to hear so many positive responses, I like him alot, but it seems I'm put down for wanting to date him . ''hes not mature and doesnt know what he wants and wont give you what you will want later in life''. Or they give me a look of disappointment or something. He really cares about me and I do him, I think I may have a chance, I've been let down 2 times, but that doesn't mean it's just because they were younger. Thinking of him gives me smile in my heart and on my face. <3
It's all about how you and him get along as people in general, not as a 38yo & 22yo! A lot of women would have hard time relating to a guy that young, but at the same time - it can be hard to relate to men of ANY age
You don't know until you give it a go - and it's your happiness that needs to be taken into consideration. No one elses (well, other than his lol)
I am someone who relates very well to young people, I'm very young at heart so I have always gotten along with young ones, sometimes more-so than those my age. I'm silly, hyper, my personality in general is that of a someone younger, just with more life experience heheh.We don't like exactly the same tv shows or music.. though few do hahah (japanese stuff). I wouldn't find that incredibly imporant compared to whether he is open to some new experiences that are more active. I could care less if he doesn't wind up liking anime or cosplaying, as long as he respects and loves me than I'm happy. This is what he does right now, but it is the excitement part of a relationship, but he is so sweet and considerate. He respects me and doesn't expect me to accept what he wants and when he would want it. He asks me what I want him to do, and if I say something bothers me that he did then he appologizes. I hope he stays sweet like he is, I don't want him to get me stuff and so far when he's asked if I want him to do anything for me I've said he doesn't have to, that he is making me happy himself. Hopefully he doesn't change much like my ex, he was sweet in the beginning but then became selfish, hopefully my young one doesn't do a turn around too. I don't expect him to not change at all, just not for the worse.
It's all in what you feel. sometimes you gotta take a chance. I did with my current s/o and couldnt be happier, were getting engaged and planning a l/o of our own sometime in the near future(although i'm still skeptical sometimes after getting my heart broken before)
