Is dating a guy 10 years older bad
One concern that has been in the back of my mind from the beginning is the age difference and whether we're at different stages in our lives.I do eventually want to get married and have kids, and whereas before I paid little attention to my own biological clock and didn't worry, now since I've turned 30 I'm becoming slightly more aware.I'm not crazy and thinking I want to marry him already or get babies popped out.We're still feeling each other out, and who knows if it will work out anyways.I don't think it's a big deal, especially as you get older. I think the biggest thing is being in the same kind of place in life.We've had the kid conversation and been very open with other, and we have awesome sex. Both of us are going back to school so we can try to get jobs that we enjoy more.My husband was self-sufficient, living in his own place with a decent job. My husband is 2 years younger than me (not 6, but still). We have been going out for almost five years (the first year was an LDR) and it's still going strong.
I think it depends on where the person is in their life. But there's nothing wrong with tending to date or be attracted to younger guys.Max O' Rell's I would only date a couple years younger than me and it really depends on their maturity.My mother in-law is 8 years older than my father in-law, my mother is 7 years older than my step dad, my sister in-law is dating a man 6 years younger than her (she is 34).Generally though, as long as they have a similar level of maturity, no worries. He was pretty mature for his age, had his own business and we got along.
I wouldn't absolutely rule it out, but I'm pretty into accomplishment and stability. But after a while I just knew it wasn't going to work out...while we may have had a lot in common, I just felt like we really couldn't relate to one another in many aspects of our life.
We are peers in the relationship and respect each other, which is what we both need/want.
