But I'm not saying that it's the one and only (or even primary) reason, like I mentioned earlier. A 19 year old dating a 30 year old is a little different. You may be mature for your age, and you may really like older guys, but you just aren't on the same playing field that they are.
Furthermore, I would be highly suspicious of any guys that do date girls that much younger.
Suspicious might be a strong word, but dating a girl who is 15 years younger is indicative of something strange going on.
It's not such a big deal if the girl is 30, and the guy is 45, but if the girls is 19? While I'm not dating now, in my late 30s through 40s, most of the women I dated were significantly younger than I was -- biggest spread being 23 years (she was 22, I was 45.) It wasn't that I was chasing younger women, it was just they were simply far easier/more open to dating (something I never expected that surprised me when I got older) than women near my age.
It's not a matter of "would" -- there's no way I'd be To add to that: When I was 30, I dated a 20-year-old.
The first year, I was unable to enjoy a lot of my normal places and activities with her because she wasn't legally allowed to enter/participate.
Than it's up to him to decided whether he wants to go down that road or not since it's his life.
After all, when he reaches your current age you will be 51...much will you have in common then? He just hit the prime of his life, and most will figure that out and go crazy.
The older you are, the more likely it is that you KNOW what it's like to be hurt. Some maybe ready to be serious...many...20s are for bars and friends and crazy nights..them get it out of their system so they can grow up and be adults.
The one thing you have to consider is what life will be like when you are 60 and your partner is 45. Age is something you can’t change, and why should you? I had a friend in high school, she was 17 when she quit.
You have one eye on retirement (and all the planning involved) while they are in the prime of their career and one of the LAST things on their mind is retirement. Life is what it is, and you make of it, what you will. She quit to get married, and everyone thought she was nuts, especially considering she was marrying one of her dad's friends (which didn't make him too popular either), who was 47 at the time.
