    Would you think it weird if you knew a 23 year old girl dating a 20 year old guy? It's early days but I do really like him. I am self-conscious though about the fact I'm older... and how others are going to see it if we get into a relationship. A part of me is paranoid he might want me for lad points (because of my age).
    So yeah - please be honest in your replies, and not just PC because you think you should.
    Thanks
    Not at all, I was 20 and my ex was almost 25 when we got together. We had a long and happy relationship that only ended because of the fact that we were so far apart in the end and we are still friends now. Age is simply a number and everyone acts differently, I know 18 year olds who are more mature than some 30 year olds and vice versa. If you like him, then it's worth a try! 😃

    That seems alright as you are both pretty mature. There isn't as large a gap between those 2 ages as there is between 20 and 17 in regards to maturity for example. The 17 year old might be a bit more idealistic and full of emotion and sheltered compared to the 20 year old

    I think it's weird only if you think it is.

    Half your age (23/2=11.5) plus seven (11.5+7=18.5) is the minimum non-creepy age you can date, so yes, 23 and 20 is absolutely fine
    4/2 = 2+7 = 9 that's weird

    Few red flags in the OP alone. Take it nice and slow, whatever you do. Remember, judge a guy by his actions, not his words

    I think Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have an age gap of 10 years or something, so you're probably fine.

    A 4 year old wouldn't be dating. Relationships only really count once you hit 13 or 14

    Hello . I don't think it is weird at all and don't think it matters in any way as you like him! I wouldn't worry about what others think and doubt they should think of anything negative. Try not to worry or feel paranoid and how does he feel about you (if you know)?
