Dating a guy 5 years younger intimatedating com
There are the perks, such as his optimism, the simplicity of the relationship and the excitement he has for pretty much anything.
It's nice to be reminded to have fun every once a while, especially when it's with someone I care so much about.
Usually the guys were 4 or 5 years older, sometimes they were 8 or 10 years older (and I went on one date with a guy who was like, 18 years older), but they were ALWAYS older. I recently started dating a younger man – he’s four years younger than me – and honestly? Here’s why: Editor’s note: I’ve opened this post a jillion times to try to write it without sounding like “in defense of this one particular younger man I’m dating”.
This became abundantly clear whenever I’d mention something from the ’90s — for example, the time I brought up MC Hammer and he had no idea who I was talking about.
All the older music that I still liked listening to, his friends were into “ironically.” His friends were young, too.
Although my guy was very mature, his age was made apparent when I visited his home and met his friends.
Also I think I’m scared to publish this while we’re still dating for fear of jinxing the dang thing. He hasn’t been doing his own thing forever, so to speak, so there’s metaphorical room for me in his life.
It seems like maybe we can share life more easily, rather than me feeling like I’m tagging along in someone else’s plans.
