Share Share this post on Digg Del. It's a little weird but nothing I'd be super concerned about really. Personally, as soon as I turned 21 I couldn't even think about dating anyone that couldn't get into a bar.
Our lifestyles would just have been too different at that point. But I'm a female so it's a bit different for me. I wouldn't be too concerned with it.

Also, sometimes, there's no difference in the mentality between an 18 yo and a 23 yo because a lot of people in their 20's are quite immature. Originally Posted by Ilovewater.

Its usually around the mid 20s that people figure that stuff out. And even more so at My 23 yr old self could run circles around my 18 year old self and the girls I were around that age too.

Id say up to a 3 year difference is ok and without much issue until about 30 for most people.
Because tbh, maturity, experience, where you are in life and what you want in life is so different in each age group. Late teens early 20s, mid 20s, late 20s Like I wouldnt mind dating women between 25 and 30 if it werent for the fact that these women are usually trying to settle down soon and find the right guy.
You know, date a few years, get married, and have kids.
I wont be even thinking about that until I am 27 or So I usually like to stay between a 22 to 24 bracket, though if I click with a girl age wont matter much. As a 25 year old, I even try and stay away from girls who are 21 because they tend to be immature and still have that "woooo I can get into bars and clubs now legally" mindset. I personally like a girl whos at least 22 because she still like to go out and have fun party wise, but is more mature than girls younger than her.
Theyve had a year to get that newness of clubbing and stuff out of their system. I remember when I was 22 and my gf was 19, how her emotional immaturity and lack of life experience really affected our relationship. It was like dating a 17 year old because she was behind on a lot of things dating wise.
If anything OP, id tell her to be careful and to make sure he never tries to use his age as an advantage over her. A lot of times dudes date a bit younger because their tactics wont work well with women "on their level". Oh "Dating a 23 year old woman" themselves arent too mature. I bet ya this wont be lasting long though, because at the end of the day people end up dating folks in their age group.
They're both roughly college-aged.
You're right to find it a little disconcerting - it is a big age gap - but one that she's apparently comfortable with for the moment. Just make yourself available to her as a confidante and a resource as she goes through this relationship. He may wind up finding her too immature
Dating a 23 year old woman she may wind up finding him too serious given their age differences, so it may not last long anyway.
That said, I was 20 when I met my year-old boyfriend. The relationship is now in its death throes, but we never really noticed the age difference.
Maturity was never an issue.
Then again, I was never the partier type. I was always serious about my schooling and about getting a job, so that helps.
But the age difference is probably worse for the older partner, as they're probably getting more serious and ready Dating a 23 year old woman settle down, while a teenager or a young something is still curious to sample what's out there.
