Dating someone 13 years older than you
But your 20’s are a life-stage of much growth, change and getting to know yourself. You do have so much to experience and as much as you’re more mature than your peers and you think you know who you are, you don’t, at least not well enough to commit to a man regardless of his age. Even 40-something women who married the love of their lives in their early 20s wish they had waited.
Even when you think you’re an old 20-something, you’re not.
It doesn’t mean she wanted to party and screw around.
She just wanted to explore and do more, more, more, rather than less.
While most women say it’s great to date an older man…there’s a limit. There is another voice in your head wondering about what this “strangeness” is all about.
When you date someone over 30 in your 20s there could be an imbalance of power. There is a big difference between a 39-year-old male who has experienced life changes and challenges that have made him mature and one who has only been responsible to himself.
Then I know men who married the younger woman who thought she was mature.

My friends, while they originally approved are now skeptical since he was acting ‘strange’ about us before.
A lot of people challenge me to imagine what it will be like when I’m 42 and he’s 60?
I can’t see myself with somebody in their 20s at the moment.
I’m finishing college and have a well-paying job lined up.
It was hard because I constantly was comparing my life to the life he and his friends were living. It not only hurt my self-esteem, as I constantly faced with what I felt I was lacking, but also I ended up racking up a huge credit card debt trying to keep up with what the women his age wearing and doing.
