26 dating 22
User Name Remember Me? I'm new around here, but have been reading quite a few posts today, and got the inspiration to ask for some advice myself. I'm in a situation currently that has me with some mixed feelings. There's a girl I've known for some time, perhaps 8 years now, but I haven't hung out with her much over the years. When I first met her, she was about 13, and I was Obviously at the time, that's just weird, let alone unacceptable for people of that age difference to be hanging out.
I knew her however through her brother, so I had met her at his house a few times. Fast-forward to present-day, I'm 26, she's I hang out with a group of friends who I've known since way back when I was in my teens, and we all still get along very well. Now, however, she is a part of that group.
We tend to all gather regularly as a group on the weekends, and I work long hours during the day, while she works long hours during the night, so we rarely actually see each other alone, its usually within the group. Lately, basically since she's turned 21, she's been making very obvious comments to me out loud amongst the group that imply she's interested in more than a friendship, yet, she does not make these kinds of comments to other guys, so I'm relatively certain she's interested. Further, she puts off a lot of other signals as well, such as touching me randomly on the arm, neck, trying to tickle me, etc.
All of these things she only does to me. However, whether she is interested in me or not is not what I'm asking for advice on. What I am more concerned with is the age difference. I find her very attractive, and we have a great deal in common, so we're able to sit and talk to each other very easily -- that "spark" is definitely there.
I'm of course concerned about how successful a mental connection on a relationship level would be given our age differences, however, I am more concerned with the "perception" of those around us, her parents, etc. Is it OK for a 26 year old to date a 21 year old? Or is the age difference too great, at too young of an age? I understand that a 60 year old being married to a 55 year old is not a big deal, but this is a bit different.. It is also important to note that I am confident the age difference is not an issue to her at all, and I suspect her family is OK with it as well, since about 8 months ago she ended a 2-year relationship with someone the same age as me.
Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated.. Share Share this post on Digg Del. I think that it is perfectly fine to date someone younger then you. She isn't all that much younger. I would go for it.
If it turns out that it won't work out then , atleast you tried. Who knows this maybe the women that you may spend the rest of your life with or something. Don't listen to people that say that you are too old for her. IT's your life date who ever you want. You use it as a stepping stone.
Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.
Once people pass the 20 year old mark, there isnt so much difference in age. If you can keep up with her danceclubbing every weekend and zipping all over the place with youthly vigor, then i dont see a problem.
26 year old guy too old to be dating 22 year old women?
It all depends on the indivituals too. I know people older than me that im more mature then, and i know people way younger than me that are much more responsible. I see no problem with this at all I think that if you think that the two of you would be a good match, you should go for it!
The one thing to think about is maturity levels. Is she experiencing "21" and partying it up right now? Or is she on the same level as you are? I don't think age really matters, especially a 5 year difference. If you think that the two of you have a connection, who is anyone to tell you anything different?

It's really no big deal! It's only 4 years. That's no big deal. I would call everyone in their 20s the same age group! These "age difference" problems only seem to interest adolescents and young teens. Adults don't worry about it. Jezebel is just evil horseshyt. I mean, sure, by all means, read the article and decide with an open mind but how much horseshyt do you have to see from something or someone before you stop wasting your time? Counting weeks and months in age differences.
