    Is it weird for a College Senior to Date a Freshman (2.6 year difference)

    I went on a date with this girl I really like last weekend. Found out she’s a freshman while I am a senior. It freaked me out a bit. I’m 21 she’s 18. In all, there is a 2 year 7 month age difference between us. Is this age difference too much/too weird? Other thoughts?

    Not really that large a gap, if you like each other and have things in common go for it.

    There is nothing wrong with that, women tend to be attracted to older men and men to tend be attracted to younger women. I’d venture to say that most adult couples have a larger age difference than you two. As long as you’re staying away from the high school girls lol

    So long as it doesnt feel like there is a power imbalance or a huge emotional maturity gap then go for it! Be aware that as the older one, there is a high probability that you will have more power. make sure it doesnt get to an unhealthy place!

    Would it be weird if it was the other way, e.g. The guy was 19 and the girl being 23?

    I don’t think its weird at all. If you have things in common go for it!
