Currently I have a boyfriend who is 4 years younger than me. We've been doing very well until now. I have just graduated from college but he just started his bachelors degree. But I have to admit I think he's even more mature than me! All my friends told me that this relationship won't last long because of our age difference. So I wanted to ask you, does age difference really matter in a relationship?
Thank you very much for your answer,
Dear Confused Girl,
It is difficult to define age. As you say this young man is a freshman now and seems very mature. More mature than you?? I doubt that.
By being in college he will be meeting other girls and how will you feel when you see him with a girl his age or younger? You will feel much older than you are. I have seen a year or two difference either way and that is on an even keel but I personally would like a young man a few years older than me. I would feel that he would be looking out for me - not me for him. However, I do know age differences really depend on the ones involved. Why don't you try to see some older boys and decided. If nothing develops you will at least have fun.
