The difference between your age now 23 and the age when you think you'd like to have a family 27 - 28 is much greater in terms of change and growth than I think 28 - 32 would be. There will probably be times when he acts his age, as you do yours, but if you can both accept the age difference, you should be fine, and will probably get used to it. It was a difficult situation no matter which way you looked at it. She will likely be a very similar person to who she is now. SecondStrangerMay 26, It did not work out. If it hadn't been for my last partner, I wouldn't be where I am right now, and wouldn't be the person that I am, living with my current partner So a few months ago, I kind of dated a girl that was 8 years older than me.
Based on her history and beliefs, she wants an older guy because that means that there's a higher chance that he'll want to settle and is ok with settling which is not always true of course. Oftentimes, it's for the better.

Although I am slowly making progress, I still struggle with pain and fatigue. How heavily do you weight youth and appearance in general? It's one of those internet observations that goes from being "this is sort of true a lot of the time mostly because of [SOCIAL FACTORS] and there are lots and lots of exceptions" to being "this is an iron-clad rule that derives from our biology and applies to everyone so suck it up ladies".
For her, you're not it, and possibly, the relationship is not it. Initially I was a little insecure about the age difference, but that quickly disappeared.

This is an archived post. I don't think the age factor is actually the main issue here for what it's worth, I've seen older-woman-younger-man relationships go both ways; one couple I know is happily married and I often forget that they are not close in age, while another couple is constantly fighting because they are obviously at very different stages in their life and do not seem to want the same things. Im 24 she'd be 30 Age doesn't really matter much to me anymore besides them being too young.
They did not have a long-distance relationship though.
Last edited by a moderator: And as the product of an unstable childhood myself, I can tell you that the fear of disapproval and then abandonment by the people you love is real and runs deep no matter how together you may look or feel. It says everything about a woman who is a good person, but who is scared of relationships -- whether they're healthy or not -- because of her own prior history.
At these moments of weakness it's hard not to fall for cynicism. I think the "when you're older you may change your mind" is something you probably shouldn't dismiss out of hand.
I have a hard time associating with people my age. The things that drove us were not age issues and we are still very good friends. I am 8 years younger than my girlfriend I am also a womanand it has never caused even a slight problem.
