21, Boy or Man?
Can a woman over 25 date a 21 year old? Is he still a boy?
A 21 y.o. male can be considered a Man and whether he behaves like one is another thing altogether. As for the dating part? It all boils down to individuality and the mental aspect of whether there is a distinct emotional attachment between the 2. Don't think there is a difference of dating an 'older' woman when both are in their twenties, and definitely not noticeable in most cases, except maybe that women mature faster in most cases too in the mental aspect. But, that's only my opinion..
My boyfriend and I started dating when he was 22 and I was 25. Little did I know he would still be so loveably annoying ten years later, lol.
It so depends on the individual. If you are comfortable and enjoy each other, I say why not? It is not age that makes a male a man, that is for sure.
Depends on the maturity level. I know 40 year old men who are immature.
I don't see a problem with it, the maturity level I think is more important. It's funny we look at a small age gap of lets say 27 to 21, but dont think much of a 43 to 35 age gap. If two people are happy with eachother then the age is just a number. However dropping below 18 I think would be a NO NO. Love is blind, and should not be based on conditions such as age. Be happy, and enjoy life.
I say, "Why not?" It totally depends on the guy. At 19, I had a son on the way, had lived on my own off and on since 14, and already had the ethics not to miss a day of work for love or Jesus. I was still what I would call a party animal, but so was my wife, hell, I played in a metal/ punk rock band and played a lot of shows. One thing I was, however, was a man. To the contrary, and I mean no disrespect to those who fit this mold, there are an increasing number of guys nowadays who, even at 20, 21, 22, seem to be interested only in texting little high school girls and playing video games... They have absolutely no work ethic and scrape by working part time at fast food joints taking orders from ambitious 16 year old assistant managers. I'm not sure what caused the big social difference in a few short years, but I'd guess it has something to do with being raised by politically correct affeminate dads who are more in touch with their feelings than their roots. A strong male role model usually breeds a strong male child who will become a "man" at a much younger age. As far as you being older... What difference will that make in 15 or 20 years? If he's the real deal, then that's the real question... Good luck, if you have doubts, there must be a reason... Maybe the question should be, "Is he worth the time invested waiting for him to ripen...?"

How to tell your parents you're dating a much older woman or man?When there's a HUGE age gap but it's time to introduce your new boyfriend or girlfriend to your parents. I think you should probably warn them beforehand? Any ideas about this topic?

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?

When is a hug more than a hug between a man and a woman who is NOT his wife?If a man hugs a woman in front of his wife, where is the line that it has gone too far? The "hug" is fine. Does it cross the line with a kiss on the cheek? A kiss on the neck? Prolonged hugging?...

At what age should you allow your child to date?Sooner or later our children will go out with someone. Dating is part of growing up. So at what age should we allow them to go on dating?

Should a man be allowed to be in more than one relationship? For example, dating a woman who he intends to marry but sleeping with a man.
