This is something to think about when you are considering dating a younger guy (or any guy for that matter).“I never thought I’d date a younger guy. When I started dating someone younger than me, I assumed there would be some big differences.
“I had been supporting myself for years,” explains Becca of her ex. I could empathize with where he was, but the level that we related was different because of our age gap.” Perhaps more important than age, is the question of life stage.Is he in a place in life where he can support and relate to you?That's important to keep in mind when you commit to dating a guy who is significantly younger than you.Karen, who eventually ended up marrying her younger guy, found that the biggest issue stemmed from him not being as mentally ready for commitment.After a few experiences, she learned to let go of some of her preconceived notions.
Sometimes we can blow the age gap thing up to be a bigger deal than it actually is.She was his drama teacher, married and 25 years his senior.I’d grown up with two older sisters so being around more mature women was nothing new but this felt different — very different.Most of the time, if the guy is mature enough his being a bit younger than you really shouldn’t be a big deal.The truth is, while dating someone younger can present unique challenges, a happy and healthy relationship is definitely still on the table.While we may usually assume a large age gap indicates an older man, there are plenty of women who date and marry men that are significantly younger (although perhaps not quite as extreme as Brigitte Macron, who is nearly a quarter-century senior to her husband, Emmanuel Macron, the president of France).
