Is the age gap between 31 and 22 too far apart?
Met a girl and we've been out as friends a couple of times, but I'm interested in her as more than friends. Is a 22 yr old girl dating a 31 yr old guy weird or unlikely?
I don't think so. Were talking about 9 years here. I am 7 years younger than my husband. You need to ask yourself if she is interested in you the same way and examine what the root of the attraction is. If it just looks and sexual-then back off and remain friends, but if you genuinely like her and have similar interests and opinions on things-go for it.
All too often in our society we set standards and rules that seem to be outdated or come from a place of fear or misinformation. Having learned such things during a time of early development, we deny ourselves true happiness because we are too... read more
Absolutely not. My mother was 27 years younger then my father. They were married for 39 years had 5 children and traveled all over the world until my father passed away. Age is just a number. Its what is in your heart and your mind that make you who you are, not your birth date.
Love is not a matter of age ,it comes from the heart.The only question is:do you love each other?
There are social behavior differences. One on one you may be great together but will you survive outside the bedroom so to speak.
I have dated up and down the age scale. The younger women's social environments involved the beach, hard bodies and a night life that was hard to maintain at any age. 'What we had in common.'
Conversation however, was very limited and shallow. Once you hear their brief story whats left to talk about?
Without enough in common any relationship will fail eventually.
Life age does matter but it does not have to stop you.
What makes you alike not different?
It's not weird or wrong... the thing is first of all.. you can't help who you fall for. And... she's 22, not 16 or something. There's 15 years difference between me and my husband (I'm 38, he's 53). Go for it and take a chance with her... Hope she feels the same!!!! Good luck and have fun...
If you genuinely like someone then age should not be a factor. The important point for me is you like who they are and not see them as a project, someone you can mould into what you perceive you are looking for in a partner.
I would say you should spend a bit more time with her, get to know her a bit better outside your comfort zone and see how it goes.
People will always have comments to make about others but you should focus on your happiness and not look to please others. I like the quote

What do you think about a younger woman dating an older man? (or vice versa)I've been dating a man that's 30 and I'm 23. We get a lot of jokes about it but there are also those who are against it simply because of our age difference. Do you think this is justified or does age really matter?

I have been on my own for many years (2 decades)firstly through choice, then through my own fussy standards.Recently I met a younger man whom I had conversed with regularly for about a year before we met.He said we had an instant connection. We spent a weekend together, had several other platonic...

I am 45 and have been away from the social scene for a while (online or off) with my divorce I have begun to wonder if there is an age limit to making new friends. My daughter suggested that I go online, but am I too old for this?
