I think our culture doesn't aid in successful monogamy. But I wouldn't have much hope that we'd have something in common or could really think about building a future together. I would be more concerned about his maturity level. You can't make somebody love you, and you can't make them stay if they don't want to. That's what I think would be 'wrong' about dating across several years: how the yell do you agree on what's fun to do. I was with my last girlfriend for over 3 years, and in only a short time, i have already had more fun, and smiled more and really felt comfortable with, than i had the entire time i was with my ex.
InsomniacZombie there is no such thing as a good double standard. It only ended because she was visiting where I lived for a few weeks and left. We arent in a relationship cos i think ppl would b against this as they would think im immature at 16. But statutory rape has nothing to do with the age of the older person. Can you remember back then??????? Also worth noting, is even though women in their late teens and early twenties certainly catch my eye, I know I would feel inappropriate hitting on you, and I think most other older guys would too. Finding someone - at all - is extremely rare, and many of us haven't met anyone in over a decade.
Mostly because his mother doesn't approve and he still lives with her. As with most things, it all depends. You have a long life ahead of you, and being in a relationship with someone that has a kid, and you're only 18, - it's not worth it. I hope I have helped, im sorry if i havent. I mean why isn't he dating people his age.
Those are the things that I see consuming folks who are 18-24. After all, if you're older you had a head start. As often as possible, I will go to her house and we will sleep together and hangout and just have fun. The general formula for this is to take the older person's age, halve it and then add 7 to find out the youngest person they should be dating. I regret none of it. I am an 18 year old male dating a 30 year old female.
I have met plenty of guys my age and they are soo immature it's embarrassing. People change once they go out into the world and live their own lives apart from relatives and school. For men sexual satisfaction has a lot to do with how attracted you are to your partner. Just make sure you're both going into this with open eyes, because she might be into you now but at 18 she's just starting with freedom. So perhaps you would like to consider ending all the possibilities of getitng with her now, before you become so attached. Even the rest of my own family.
I know you said you feel like you wont be bale ot retain yourself, but I think you can. The person is at least age 16 years and at least 5 years older than the child or children in Criterion A. I have shown friends pictures of her, asking them 'hey how do old do you think this girl is? I am one of those people. Well yes but if you have a 14 year old asking Gamespot if he should go out with a 7 year old then you know that something has gone horribly wrong. He's always telling me how full of life i am and how cool i am ; hihi. I think if i do i should wait until she is 18 too.
And please don't just give in to your rampant temptations, without making sure that she also understands what kind of relationship you're after. Some guys are not all that mature by 25. It's not uncommon for a 30-year-old gay man to have dating and social skills similar to a teenager; this doesn't condone this, but when you've never met anyone, the intentions aren't always the same as, say, a heterosexual pairing of differing ages. It depends on what you're looking for out of the relationship. I haven't a clue why you'd be worried about it.
But I wondered whether they considered certain important questions. When he was 16 he dated a girl only 3 years younger. I'm sure there is love mutually, but that doesn't mean the feelings will stay or fade. I think you need to address why you had to ask other people about it, is it your own insecurity, anxiety, etc? Good luck I don't see why the age difference should make a difference as long as the two parties involved hold a mutual attraction for each other. Get your life in gear! You sem very much so and smart. Right now, he's the cool, older guy.
