I was more mature than most 24 year olds at age 14. We are thrust into the real world with a large amount of student debt, jobs that barely pay enough to make rent, relationships that are rapidly changing and a profound feeling of being lost on how to handle it all. I remember when I was 22 and my gf was 19, how her emotional immaturity and lack of life experience really affected our relationship. Like I wouldnt mind dating women between 25 and 30 if it werent for the fact that these women are usually trying to settle down soon and find the right guy. It's a little weird but nothing I'd be super concerned about really. Thanks everyone for the replies, yall are all so nice! They have responsibility over their lives and you have responsibility over yours. If you see a girl, go talk to her! He used to work where I worked and that's how we met.
Our lifestyles would just have been too different at that point. Wait and see how it plays out before you let it get to you. You'll also discover more about yourself. Trust, respect then love my friend and you have not been completely honest with her. I mean if you are already in love with her, then of course you can fall for someone at any age, what you do with the love is very different. A period of struggle prepares you for a future of resilience. I wont be even thinking about that until I am 27 or 28.
Post college your opportunities for dating drops quite a bit. But sometimes when I feel extremely lonely, I think that it would have been really great if I had a girlfriend. Her body looks adult and all now. There are also some 18 yos who are mature. She said she wanna come to me and see me. Maybe your sister is a mature 18. Had a great time, dropped her off at home and never really asked her out again.
I don't think it's that big of a deal. I have been in a poor relationship where I was so unhappy and I have gone through such a messy and hurtful break up; I have lost my passion for my job; and my grandad has been diagnosed with aggressive cancer. After that he avoided me like the plague because he didn't want people to get the wrong idea. The ups and downs are just a natural part of what keeps things interesting. Thanks maturity is not a gender thing. Kinda thought he saw me as a little sister, tbh. Start applying what you learn.
Comparisons are completely senseless, unless you use them as a motivator. That said, I was 20 when I met my 25-year-old boyfriend. Our lifestyles would just have been too different at that point. For me I want something long term and would like to start building that now for the future. I can honestly say these past six months have been the toughest of my life.
He's happy now, I should be happy for him, he was a decent guy , just sucked being a place holder- I really don't think age was the biggest factor, but she had more time for him I don't really drink or party and that's what he is into. It really depends on the two people involved. If anything, I've had better experiences just finding a group to chat with or hang out with when I've been on my own. I wouldn't be too concerned with it. But those moments never last for too long. I'm still feeling it out, so if I get to talking to anyone around my age, I try to find out about what's around. Time to focus on me.
No arrest has been made in either of the deadly shootings. Which is what I found to be kind of weird, because he could be with a lot of women around his age if he wanted to. Not that it can really be quantified in that way, it's more just a vague concept of how I view things. Oh they themselves arent too mature. Any individual should have the freedom to make their own choices. They are streching in those spandex pants.
Do you want a long term relationship with kids and a family? I'm sorta starting to like him, but I'm just wondering how mature he might be since I'm a few years older and that simple fact is making me wonder if I should even pursue anything with him. Plus, old people are hilarious! The man was taken to Brookdale Hospital privately, and was pronounced dead. He may wind up finding her too immature and she may wind up finding him too serious given their age differences, so it may not last long anyway. I bet ya this wont be lasting long though, because at the end of the day people end up dating folks in their age group. Now, I know this is over a year old. I started talking to a 24 year old guy a few weeks ago. I have a lot of hobbies and intrest, but I am guessing you mean sexually? Also, sometimes, there's no difference in the mentality between an 18 yo and a 23 yo because a lot of people in their 20's are quite immature.
