QUESTION: 24 year old male (just graduated) dating 20 year old female (2nd year). Bad idea/too far apart?

  1. Lol what is wrong with you people? I don't think you're ready for a relationship if you think that is too "far apart" or a "bad idea" and child like. What are you? Are you still 16? If you think there is a problem going out with a 20 year old that is 4 years younger than you, maybe you just haven't matured enough yet. Reconsider the relationship and wait till your mature enough if not your relationship won't end well.

    1. Despite the grammatical errors and lack of punctuation, I wholeheartedly agree. Good post.

    2. Which grammatical error? I only see "your" instead of "you're" in the last line. And which punctuation errors?

    3. You got it. Plus it should be "child-like," and that sentence itself could use a comma or two. Also, the last sentence is a run-on that needs a period or a semi-colon.

    4. @1b: The second sentence and the last one would really benefit from some sort of additional punctuation.

    5. Come for me when you get your PhD in linguistics. As if I'm turning in what I said as an essay. When people say everyone at this school is too up-tight, they aren't even lying.

  3. My boyfriend and I are four years apart and things are swell. If you like the person, go for it. Just be prepared for studying, essay writing, etc. to take precedence for her. It's crazy how quickly you forget those things once you graduate.

  4. almost ten years difference here. doesn't matter to me. my girlfriend gets a little insecure about life experience though. i just let her know that i'll support her no matter what even if she wants to date someone her age. we just take it day by day.

  5. Pierre Trudeau's wife was thirty years younger than him, so I think you're good.

  6. 4 years difference isn't much. 5 years people start talking, but honestly, meh, 4 years

  7. While she is in undergrad there may be a couple comments, but once you have both graduated, age will be just a number. Undergrad is such a small part of your life that it shouldn't stop you from two from being together. If you like her, then don't change a thing.

  8. There's always that old rule of your age divided by two plus seven. If you subscribe to this, you're good to go.
