    Is she to young?

    I know the saying age is just a number… but it just doesn’t feel right.

    So I met this girl and we really hit it off. She’s awesome. But after talking a while I found out she’s 19. (I’m about to turn 25). We’ve texted/Snapchat/etc daily for almost 2 weeks and she’s really cool. And I kinda feel she has the same feeling a towards me (no expert in dating so I may be way off). I know your all going to say that age doesn’t matter in happiness, but it still just don’t feel right dating someone that much younger. I’m kinda at a loss of what to do.

    I know lots of people who date people that are a lot younger than them. My best friend is 19 and is about to get married to his fiancé who is 27 and they are very happy together. My uncle is married to a woman that is 20 years older than him and they’ve been happily married 20+ years. If it feels right and you really like her and she feels the same way then keep talking to her just as long as she’s at least 18.

    That’s not a huge age difference at all, if you’re both hitting it off now just see how things go!

    Thank you both. I guess maybe I’m just nervous and was looking for an excuse. Dating is not my strong point and I’ve only been in one serious relationship. I usually talk myself out of asking any girl I like out.

    Thanks

    It’s not always about how old they are. It’s how they act or behave, are they mature for a 19 year old? But all in all, if you like her, get on well and she feels the same about you then the age gap is irrelevant. I honestly believe 19 and 24(nearly25) is not that much of a gap. Do you feel people are judging you because youre dating someone younger?

    The short answer is no, she’s not too young. The long answer is: I guess it depends how mature she is, like if she’s quite an old 19 then it really is just a number. However if she behaves a bit childish or acts too young for your liking and you just feel like you’re different people because of the age difference then it might not be such a good idea. You weigh up the situation and make a decision for yourself, your life at the end of the day bro.

    That’s hardly even an age gap! If you guys are hitting it off, then go with it! It would be one thing if she was 17 or younger, but she is an adult woman of age, so there is absolutely nothing wrong with it as long as it is consensual both ways. Good luck! 🙂

    Nope. My fiance and I have been together since I turned 18 and he was 28 and we been going strong for 5 years now. It seems to me you guys are getting along pretty well so I couldn’t see a problem between you two but it also depends on her maturity level and how you think she would act in your guys relationship.

    No. If she was 20yrs old or about to turn 20 I bet you would look at it differently. Feel free to wait until she turns 20 before doing anything serious. Feel free to ask her what she thinks of the age gap between you two, that should help to remove any thoughts of guilt or just carry on in focusing on the positives in your communication. At the end of the day she can make for a very great and close friend.

    I don’t think that’s too big of an age difference at all. It really boils down to maturity level and compatibility anyways. If you click, then go for it!

    That’s not a big age gap. Get to know her better as a person than make your mind up. If you still feel that way and it is having effect on your happiness then you got your answer.
