In general, I wouldn't say that a year-old dating a year-old raises any immediate red flags. Who knows whether these things will work out years is a lot in terms of life stage, when to settle down, etc. We went sailing in Greece last year. Dating someone your parents don't approve of while you live with them, and that person also being a coworker is a horrible idea.
- But, I would not have dated him while living with my parents or while working with him.
- When she's at her sexual peak you'll be almost sixty.
- She says she feels more comfortable with me than with any other guy she's met.
Are you sure you want to delete this answer? As long as we have similar interests, I don't see the problem. So, yeah, your sister's fine. Everything you say about your sister and her partner makes me think the age difference is something they are going to handle well.
- Honestly, I'd be more worried about the possible repercussions of dipping the pen in company ink than anything else given the facts you've presented.
- The fact that they're working together is a red flag though.
- But your sister sounds prepared for that.
Without any evidence that this guy is mistreating your sister or using her, I wouldn't be worried, especially if your sister is mature and generally makes sensible decisions about important things. Incidentally, it's probably a lot healthier for her to not be living with your parents if she's choosing to live her life this way. As long as he follows Dan Savage's campsite rule and all that. This is particularly relevant if they work in the same place! Also older they r the more damaged and jaded.
Because if it's a relationship that works out in the long term, she might learn some valuable things from not going right from living with your parents to living with a boyfriend. The age difference in itself is not a problem. On the upside though, she has brought up to me that guys her age often just dont get it. The age difference is is something that will bother other people, but if it doesn't bother them, then that's fine.
Its been a month and it's been fabulous. There's nothing abnormal about wanting to date someone who in your exact age cohort. The age issue doesn't make me blink.
It's about u and him no one else. My biggest concern would be that he won't want to do what she wants to do since he has done it already. So don't even listen to anyone else. As with other posters, the only thing that concerns me is that they work together.
Also, her mom retired early in part to accommodate her Dad and she's spent the last decade or so being pretty bored. Not one relationship has ended except for the passing of a partner. This happened, they're in love and he's treating her well by all accounts.
Or she might get burned, aggie dating like any other relationship. What's my opinion of the guy? We don't want to emulate that.
To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! What are the bad things you think are going to happen here? It's amazing, ottawa and none of anyone's business.
Is it okay for a 20 year old to date a 25 year old
Of the woman fits the bill she will be the one. However it sounds from your post like you haven't actually met this fellow. Some people might look down on the age gap, but if they don't know you well, they are just hating to hate. PostDoc, if it happened often then you were actually consciously choosing to be with older men.
If you re 26 would you date a 20 year old
The age difference is the least of your worries, if it is a worry at all. Eventually they broke up, obviously, but she turned out ok. As for parents who may kick her out of the house, this is a separate issue.
Is it okay for a 20 year old to date a 25 year old
Dating with an age gap works great for some people, not so great for other people. It was a total fluke I met her at all. Almost all my relationships have had this kind of age gap or bigger and I'm fine.
At first I was just thinking of it as a hot piece of action. Why not meet the guy, see them together, and get a sense of what they're like as a couple? Either make a joke of it or don't acknowledge it, writing good dating profile but it is still going to come up a bunch and both parties have to be okay with it to deal with that. My husband is an older man. She'd have a lot of support from friends and roommates who are learning all this stuff at the same time.
According to her, everything is brilliant and wonderful and he is a prince who treats her with respect, love, and affection. Both of those things can lead to a lot more drama and strife than anything related to age differences. Postdoc, I do too and I am also able to sustain friendships with older people than with people my age. The fact that they work together has the potential for disaster.
When it doesn't matter is when you and your partner don't talk or worry about it. Is this a cause for concern? But those red flags turn up in the relationship dynamics, not in the simple difference in age. There's also probably a bit of niggling concern about what her family would think they are quite conservative although she hasn't aired it. Moving for job opportunities?
