Dating someone 3 years younger than you - Sex Chat
This week I will be celebrating my husband’s birthday. I felt so weird about it, plus I always thought I would marry someone older.
The age difference consequently led me to drag my feet for quite awhile. There was nothing about his maturity or wisdom that indicated he was any younger.I would also encourage you to consider older women for the same reason that women like older men: there can be a real difference in maturity.I am certainly a different woman than I was 5 years ago, and my husband has benefited from that growth.Our relationship would have probably been rockier had we met when I was younger.He consistently impressed me and cared for me with excellence.Throughout the course of our dating relationship, he conducted himself like a total gentleman. But seriously, for all the times I had heard that women date older men because women mature much faster, Ike broke the mold. As a result of my own experience, I came up with a tongue-in-cheek rule that I have started telling my single friends: Most guys are about as mature as they’re going to become by the time they reach the age of 24.
Eventually, my hang-ups about the age difference began to seem silly. If they haven’t matured by that point, then they probably won’t mature a WHOLE lot more.
That’s why some 25 year-old men act like wise-beyond-their-years adults, while some 35 year-old men act like middle-schoolers. At a time when women in the church outnumber men by a ratio of 3 to 2, women are too quick to rule out younger men because of preconceived notions about age difference.
Now please don’t take the above “rule” too seriously. What women should instead look for is godliness, wisdom, and responsibility. To my single guy readers, don’t be afraid to ask out a woman if she is older.
I have a cousin who is the same age as me, and she recently married a man 4 years younger.
Another one of my friends is in an amazing relationship with a man 3 years younger.
If you act like a man, women will treat you like one.
