    Idk if this is weird or what. But I'm just always seem to be into guys older than me. Like none of the guys my age never appealed. Like when it comes to the maturity or the overall vibe you see. And by older I don't mean like 20 year old age gap. More like from 2 years to 8/9 years older than me. I never get attracted to anything below that. Ever. No matter how handsome they are or anything I'm never into them. :/ I'm just a wee bit worried. Like my friends keep joking how I never date people my age and stuff...
    Can anyone relate or nay?

    19- 25 that's cringe not on your part but his. Once you're in your 20s you shouldn't date teenagers. I would think that there's something wrong with him.

    Agreed, I dont know you or your relationship, but I think he is looking for young p*ssy.

    I'm not into guys my age either. Nobody in my cohort at university/school appeals. I think it's normal, seems okay to me.

    I understand you! My boyfriend is also 25 (I'm 18). I feel the same way, as if the guys my age aren't mature enough, or that a lot of them just want sex but I want something more than that, something that's 'real'. I don't want to generalise though, obviously. There are 18/19 year old guys who don't just want sex but there's just something about older guys.

    My parents have a 10 year age gap between them. She was thirty when he married her, it doesn't make him a creep. That's kind of extreme.
    30 is different

    In this situation, OP is 19 and her boyfriend is 25. It doesn't look impossible. We're not speaking of a "young girl" of 15yo hitting on a 40yo guy.

    It's not weird at all. I personally have always preferred people older than me, even in friends. I think it's a maturity thing perhaps?

    That being said, I don't think age should really have any bearing on things like this, if two people connect than ultimately age is just a number. As long as they're within legal territory of course.

    I generally only find guys at least two years older than me or more attractive.

    (Though I'm only 17.)

    Yep, that's normal.

    What if a 25 year old girl was dating a 19 year old boy. Its weird, it's not ok.

    It's quite normal. Tbh, I think girls mentally mature quicker than guys, so that probably plays a part. (Just don't be going for older guys when you're under 18)

    I would have happily dated a 25yo girl at 19.

    What did you have at 19 years old?
    What were your accomplishments by then

    Accomplishments? I don't really think that plays too much of a part... Plus plenty of people are working and earning at that age. I'd never build a relationship based around what my partner had accomplished, more so around them as a person and how much I liked them and how much they liked me. What is this? The Sims?
