Thread: Heís younger than me

  1. #1

    Heís younger than me

    Hello,

    I need some advice, I turned 24 yesterday and my boyfriend is 22 (23 in January) Iím worried that I am too old for him and that itís odd that Iím older as normally the guy is the older that the girl in the relationship, we havenít been together long so Iím worried that his parents might think a 24 year old is too old for their 22 year old son.

    It's only 2 years, OP. You're stressing over nothing.

    My last long-term ex was 2 years younger that me. We were 23 and 21 when we met, and we were together for 8 years. The slight age difference was barely noticeable, and not a factor in our eventual split.

    My brother's girlfriend is 16 years older than him. That is a sizable gap, but they've been happy together for 3 years. Once people got over the initial surprise at their age difference, nobody thought anything differently about either of them.

    Why are you worried about what his parents think?
    Have you met them? If not are there any plans to meet them?

    It sounds more like you are the one worried? Why? Do you think he is too immature for you?

    When did you meet him?

    No...you're a good age. I am 2 years older than my husband and it makes no difference.

    Don't worry about it at all. I also have a son and if a girl dated him that was 2 years older, it wouldn't be a big deal at all.

    I would hardly call 2 years an age gap.

    What age gap! Ten + years is an age gap.

    2 years is not an age gap. I am almost 3 years older than my husband. We met when he had just turned 20 and I was 22 1/2.

    The only time 2 years might be too big of an age gap is in the teen years. Beyond that, 2 years is nothing.

    What does he think? Does he think his parents would object?

    Not a good sign if you're digging up reasons to question things. If you don't want to date a "younger" guy, then don't date a younger guy. I've known women who wouldn't date someone younger on principle. Didn't matter if she was 5 years older or 5 weeks. Kind of a strange flex, but it's not my life. Still, that doesn't give you license to project your misgivings on him or his parents.
