Dating a girl a year older watch

    I was just wondering if you'd feel even 5% slightly weird about dating a girl older than you. I know ultimately most guys would be fine with it, but is it still not seen as ideal? E.g like dating a girl with bigger feet than you.

    I ask because I'm a year older then most guys I know at uni as I took a year out. I've been involved with three guys and they were all younger than me. I'd find it weird dating a boy in the year below from my school, but at uni it doesn't really make a difference to me as we're essentially in the same year now and I've always known them that way.

    Would it make any of you feel even slightly emasculated?
    I also don't just mean a few months difference, I mean approx 12 months, potentially more depending on birthday months.

    Why don't you ever read people's posts properly?

    Imagine not having the attention span to read a short paragraph.
    I see so many of your replies on threads where you don't answer the question properly because you don't read the OP or click on links. If you haven't got anything valuable to add to a conversation, and if you don't want to spend the effort reading someone's post then simply don't reply. It's not a competition of who can reply to the most threads. I feel like now you're a CA, you think it's your duty to answer as many threads as possible (which is fine) but you rarely offer useful or insightful advice. Perhaps you just like the sound of your own voice.

    Yeah I know, like the guys I was involved with obviously didn't seem bothered but I was just wondering if there's ever a part of guys that secretly finds it less ideal when their gf is older. E.g I'd imagine most guys would prefer to be the taller one in the relationship, or they'd enjoy the feeling of paying for a date, or enjoy feeling like they can protect their girlfriend, or being the more dominant one etc.
    This isn't going to change things for me, so no one has to be polite and PC, but I just wanted some truthful and blunt answers. My own curiosity because obviously the guys I was dating weren't exactly going to say anything negative about it.

    My attention span is perfectly fine, otherwise I wouldnt be going out my way helping out other users on here. Some of those threads that you are speaking about, are full on paragraphs, which I dont have time to read, so instead I skim read. Whenever I do put my input to a thread, i personally think its valuable to the OP but in your case, it seems not. And FYI, for me its not about answering as many threads, otherwise I would be commenting on every thread I see. I answer the ones which I think are relevant and shows that ppl really do need the advice/help. I dont know who you are but maybe its just your own threads that I dont provides any 'insightful' advice. I mean this thread is a prior example. Nah its not my voice hun, I like the style of words that I use. Have a great evening/morning

    Guys would sometimes joke about it and call me old so was wondering if it crosses their mind enough to joke about it then is there more behind it.

    It's wrong to date an older woman, I don't why it just is. Geezers are meant to go out with younger chicks. I know it's not the law, but it's natural. Dump your boyfriend and finder an older model. Hope this has helped

    It doesn't make a huge difference, it is only a year (or so). When people comment, they are only joking so I wouldn't pay much attention to what they say.

    You responded when the post was clear they were a female wondering about the male perspective.

    It's really not a big deal, at all. One year is nothing.
