Dating someone 13 years older
I was smitten with his wit and the way he filled out a pair of pants. Should I seriously have let 15 years come between me and happiness, just so I could avoid judgment from girls like Sue?I really should have answered her question with the long list of truly great things about dating an older man.
(The Frisky) -- My new tall, dark and handsome boyfriend was standing across the room looking so fine in his shirt; I couldn't take my eyes off him. Meanwhile, I was at the snack table and before I could curse myself for leaving him to go in for another cheesy cracker, I was accosted by a buddy's wife I barely knew, a nasty woman named Sue. I wanted to say something like, "He's not as old as those frown lines make you look!), but it does mean that group hang-outs might be a little bit awk until you and bae's friends become tight — and vice versa for your BF/GF and your squad. Just cause you were born in the year 2000 doesn't mean you're an *actual* baby, thank you very much. Clearly, they're fine when it comes to dating someone younger. But for some reason, they can get all weird about it. Some schools only let in current seniors; others have rules about not allowing people older than 18 attend. When bae goes off to college, you either have to attempt long-distance or break up. Long-distance is incredibly challenging — you wind up going weeks or months without seeing each other, spending lots of time and money traveling back and forth, and the distance can make it hard to feel like a real part of each other's lives.
