Dating someone who is older than you
People at dinner parties openly asked me what I thought I was doing. When you’re young and naive it’s easy to assume that the older party is taking advantage of the younger one.Perhaps there is an element of that: the confidence and dominance of someone much older than you is reassuring and attractive when you’re a confused teenager, but to reduce a relationship to the age gap is, I think, short sighted.They might want to hook up or have sex before you're ready. You don't need to jump into having sex just because they're older than you are or because they've had sex before.You should never feel pressured into doing anything you're not comfortable with, no matter how old your S. If anything, they might be a tiny bit more mature than people your own age, which means more likely to understand that you need to go at your own pace. If you're in America, federal (national) law makes it criminal to have sex with someone ages 12 - 16 if they're at least four years younger than you are.), 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.6.
We went around the circle, hearing variations on a theme: I went travelling on my gap year, I’m scared of spiders, my favourite film is Breakfast at Tiffany’s.I’d always had a thing for older men, but that had usually meant five to ten years older.My ex, who I fell for completely to my own surprise, was more than thirty years older than me.I didn’t fully appreciate what a toll the situation was taking on my relationship with my family until after we broke up.Dating someone who could take part in my family life was a revolution.
It changed the vibe, and if they were really honest, it wasn’t how they would have chosen to socialise.
