QUESTION: Into a guy 12 years older than me, I'm 25 and a PhD student here and he's 37, any advice?
We met at a week long conference and just clicked naturally, we both had a lot in common and got along extremely well. He's an extremely polite guy and being some what stand offish to the idea of us being together, particularly as he expressed a lot of his colleagues and friends are going to judge him to be with a much younger women. Advice? I'm not really sure how to deal with the topic as he consistently brings up our age gap.

  1. he is doing that so you WILL date him. Hope on the old hot man ride and enjoy but don't expect it to go anywhere necessarily and don't be surprised when you find out about the wife.

    1. Yeah don't listen to 1. This site needs a stupid filter for comments like these.

  2. As someone who has dated 12+ years younger I'd say go for it. It will be a different experience for sure, but once you get over some of the generational gap shit it's not too bad. It may look a little unusual on his side though as people will be suspicious to his motives as people always think that one should 'stick to their own age.' But fuck it. The relationship is between you two, if you click go for it, see where it goes. #1 sounds like an idiot.

    He may be somewhat old school. I know when I was younger the social norm was to date and then after a lengthy relationship you'd fuck. Now people fuck just because, which to me is pretty awesome, no complaints there.

  5. Bad idea. If you don't regret it now, you will later.

  6. Let him know that you're genuinely interested in him and to stop treating you like a kid. The last line just screams immaturity. If he says no, then so be it, he missed out on an opportunity with a great girl.

    1. Playing the victim will turn him off completely.
