Dating someone 18 years older
Although some people may argue that age doesn’t matter for teen dating, I STRONGLY disagree!As a teenager, it’s probably best to date within a two-year window of your own age.High school is always a tough battle of figuring out who you are while also trying to keep the acceptance and approval of your peers.It's crazy how one person can come into your life and change everything, including the way you view others.(As you get older, these stages get further apart and age becomes less important.)If you’re dating someone who is more than a couple of years older or younger than you when you’re still in your teens, you’ll probably run into some pretty BIG differences, which can result in unnecessary conflict and heartache.
I don’t believe that there is any “right” age for someone to marry, nor do I believe that a girl to marry someone older than her. Whenever women talk about hitting thirty, or forty, or fifty (or any other age that causes them to have a slight crisis), you can always smile a little.
Considering the fact that he teases me mercilessly about my abundance of gray hair, I think it’s about time I get to talk up my great youth.
All kidding aside, there are some wonderful things about being married to a man who is more than a couple years older than you (let’s not forget that there is an assumption being made that along with age, a certain level of maturity has been reached!
It’s definitely fair to say that my dear man was warned, so I don’t feel even the tiniest bit bad about it.
This year, my husband, who will move up into his forties, will officially be married to a girl still in her twenties. Actually, we’re just over ten years apart but it so happens that there are three little months between his fortieth birthday and my thirtieth.
My high school was not the most “diverse and accepting” school out there (I mean how many high schools are), and my relationship quickly became the topic of discussion in group chats and gossip circles.
