Dating a guy 16 years older
The man is a "friend of the family" so he has utter most respect for her family, and vis versa. They talk about their future and have known each other even before dating. The couple have her parent consent so, YES, it IS legal. The man is not trying to get in her pants, and how "been together" for over a year. Is it weird if a man in his 30s stares at a 13-17 year old girl? We've had to ask if it's worth listening to other people’s opinions to potentially give up the best relationship we have both ever had.It amazes me that even as the world seems to be progressing and we're now openly embracing many life choices, most of us still aren't comfortable with age differences in relationships.on a date, because I actually broke every dating rule out there, and invited him over to my house to watch a football game and share dinner.Also note that this was not because I had some notion that we would end up together long-term, but rather because I was embarrassed to be seen in public with him because of our age difference. At the time, I thought that people would judge us and stare, or even worse, someone might mistake him for my son.
When the roles are reversed and an older man dates a younger woman, the men are often congratulated and revered.And, although we've been together for more than a year and a half, live together, and are planning a future with one another, individuals still find it difficult to understand why we have chosen each other.My age has been a huge barrier for some to open their minds and hearts and get to know me simply as the person whom he loves.What is the equivalent of "cougar" for a man who has a younger partner?(Correct: there isn’t one.)So, after grappling with my own insecurities and the societal taboos, there were also the judgments of friends and family.
