Now we all know a 30 year old that targets 18 year olds is a bit strange but what about 25? Id class 18 as a kid and 25 as an adult, albeit a young adult. Hence, there is a very high percentage of mid-twenties serious people, having their hearts broken by fickle and flash-changing teens. (you better answer yes) She doesn't need a 25 year old BOYfriend right now. Leave her be and let her start worrying about her future.(you SHOULD have the mentality and maturity now,at your age, to know better)When she turns 28,,,you'll be 35. Or are you just living your life, maybe going to parties, and you met someone you "connect" with and she happens to be 18? In practical terms, not much difference between 23 and 25, but generally, there's a HUGE difference between 16 and 18.What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.
So I had a birthday today and I realized I'm still a young adult but I'm really on the verge of just what I would call an "adult". But.....there is a world of difference betwenn 18 and 25. But almost no 18 year olds are even remotely ready, again, even though most of them think they are.
Without those weightier responsibilities, Millennial boys (or, for the most part, the ones I've encountered) are living this suspended fratboy mentality.
Thus, we ladies have looked to older men to fulfill those more grown-up needs.
For me, and many other women like me, it all begins with a number. Before agreeing to a set-up, as a follow-up response or even playing a flirtatious game, I always find the answer to the question, “So, how old are you? And if you don't know who the Seavers are from “Growing Pains,” then you don't stand a chance.
As much of our generation is delaying activities like marriage and procreating, we are, in effect, also prolonging its adolescence.
You're 50, so that means you can date a woman who is 32.
