Can age gap relationships work? I'm around 20 and I find myself attracted to more older men. I don't what it is but I find them way more appealing and exciting than people my own age, I don't know whether its to do with my parents split years earlier and I'm 'looking for a father figure' or I just want someone mature enough to carry on a meaningful conversation among other things. Sometimes it concerns me as I've been involved with an older man before and it was very complicated. Am I just setting myself up to get hurt? Reply, anyone. I wold love some opinions! Good or bad?!
It all depends on how old the men are. If they are say, 30, no that wouldn't be an issue. A lot of people marry with 10 year age differences and turn out great. However, if you find yourself attracted to 50 year old men, that would become an issue. More than likely, they're WAY too mature for someone your age. They've already experienced the walks of life, and many probably have got married and had kids and all that jazz. A 20 year old can't handle all that. Just be careful. Lots of young people, especially girls your age, can be taken advantage of by older men. Don't go looking for someone. Let someone come to you. Don't set yourself up for trouble by flirting with old men. However, you must remember this : Nobody can tell you what to do. I can't control you LOL. You can date whoever you want to, but I am only giving you a warning that you need to be careful with more mature men. Don't set yourself up for anything. And lastly, TRY talking to men around your age. 20 is a great time in your life. Probably partying, going to college, etc. 20 year olds can be exciting; actually probably more exciting than a 40 or 50 year old I would think. Hope this helped and good luck
This is an odd question and if I told my parents about my relationship I fear they would go overboard with questions but. If let's say I'm 15 right? What if I was 'in love' and somewhat 'dating' a girl who was 4 years older than me? Would that be too old? We never had sex or anything. She hasnt tried to encourage me to do something stupid or wrong. She's actually one of the only people that like me. for me. I just need help. D-do you think it would work between me and my gf?
