I'm of course concerned about how successful a mental connection on a relationship level would be given our age differences, however, I am more concerned with the "perception" of those around us, her parents, etc. Or is the age difference too great, at too young of an age?
I understand that a 60 year old being married to a 55 year old is not a big deal, but this is a bit different.. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. My best friend at the time eloped withe her bf - she got married when she wasn't even 17.
That means no joking about him being an old man or way, way worse… (Recoils in horror.) Heaven forbid you ever, ever, use the f-word! He's not moving too fast by offering to cook you dinner.
Maybe not mentioning the dumb sh*t you did abroad is a good idea, too.8. Here are the tell-tale signs he's 30 going on 13: A) He still proactively buys tickets to an EDM concert and can only pontificate about DJs, B) He is incapable of choosing a proper place, date and time for your first meeting (i.e.
doesn't have a game plan), C) He is the organizer of organized parties (i.e.
Lately, basically since she's turned 21, she's been making very obvious comments to me out loud amongst the group that imply she's interested in more than a friendship, yet, she does not make these kinds of comments to other guys, so I'm relatively certain she's interested.
Further, she puts off a lot of other signals as well, such as touching me randomly on the arm, neck, trying to tickle me, etc. However, whether she is interested in me or not is not what I'm asking for advice on.
Don't listen to people that say that you are too old for her. I see no problem with this at all.....i'd date a 19 year old if i could, but im a dirty old man ha ha ha I think that if you think that the two of you would be a good match, you should go for it! Is she experiencing "21" and partying it up right now? I don't think age really matters, especially a 5 year difference. From the experience and maturity point of view, he was the best guy I ever dated. In my experience, it was usually people outside of our relationship who had a problem with the age gap, not us. My rule of thumb is if the person your interested in is old enough to have given birth to you then I would not consider them. If you or someone close to you is currently in crisis or in an emergency situation, contact your local law enforcement agency or emergency number.
