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!

My folks are 10 years apart in age. There isn’t any real need to be too weirded out by this age difference. As long as you both like each other, why not just try and see how it works out?

No, 2 years isn’t that bad also once you graduate college, you gonna be around people from vast numbers of age. School institutionalizes this social construct thinking that 14 years and 17 years and tremendously wide but that system was meant for our own protection from school fights. A a smaller person would most likely lose fighting a person who is much bigger than them (Ex. 9th grader vs 12th graders) But in college you’re an adult. Most people college students are already developed both mentally and physically to it isn’t really that weird.
