Is the age difference a problem for you? Let's say the woman is not one year younger, but two years older. Girls are mentally five years older than boys. So theoretically the boy should be five years older than the girl, but nowadays we find girlfriends in the same class who are as old as you. Let's collect some opinions.

hi mari.its true that matureness of a guy comes later than a girl and that's why people like to have some age difference in between the couples so that they can understand each other.however exceptions are always there.nowaday children are growing at a rapid pace.they are becoming very soon and they know what's best for thier life.so i think if both the partners are happy and they understand each other then there is really notihng to worry about.i have seen many relations like this and they have really worked for them.

my dad is 2 years younger than my mom, and they go along well. I think there arent any problem about the age. The case is different though when the guy is more emotionally immature than the girl, regardless of age.

my sister is 28 and her boyfriend jus turned 26. They have been together almost 10 years and just had their first child together. What your saying is theoretically true, but there are always exceptions. Each person is different in every way. Now me I am biased against men who are younger than me. I will not date a man that is younger. It doesn;t matter how great a guy he is, if he says hes younger than its a total turn off for me

I haven't dated anyone who was younger than me. Not that I have anything against it but I think it was because the stages of live I was at. I was on my own at 16 so to go over to a 14 year old parents how and they find out that I am on my own they probably would not want me dating their baby boy. Also I am a mom too. So that people I tend to date are older who are ready to be with a family type situation as opposed to hanging out till 4 in the morning. My man now is almost 10 years older than I and I don't think it makes a difference in our relationship. We are both in similar stages of life.
