But don’t be shocked if she has a sudden, drastic change of heart. Do not rob someone of the experience of screwing up. Screwing up is so important because you learn unbelievable lessons when you screw up a big opportunity. You learn lessons on a visceral, guttural level—and it helps to shape you into a strong woman. When she comes home from her waitressing job upset because some other bitch waitress made up a nasty rumor about her, do not—do not—make fun of her for having such petty problems.

Why would a mature adult want to date someone out of high school? If my son tried to date an 18 year old girl when his is 29, then I would be very upset. If they don’t have anything in common, then it’s not a real relationship. If they DO have things in common, the 29 year old is either immature, or the 18 year old is extraordinary. I think stage of life matters more than age in this case.

He’s 6’9″ and 250 pounds, but he’s incredibly scared of ghosts, and he believes there’s ghosts in his house, even though I’ve assured him numerous times there are not. We’re in our 20’s, and as funny as I think it is every time he calls me to come with him to his basement, I always show up anyways because that’s what friends are for. You would never think such a huge man would be so deathly scared to go in his basement alone, but I love him to death regardless.”

I have a 25 year old friend that has a 17 year old gf…it’s no big deal. I still like younger women; but these Flirtlocal days, my definition of ‘younger’ is ‘thirty and up’. To chat, flirt and build a strong relationship with.

Dating is hard at any age, but entering a new decade introduces a whole new set of nuances. If you thought you finally nailed the dating game in your 20s, it might feel frustrating and overwhelming once you hit 30. The truth is dating in your 30s is very different from dating in your 20s.

We welcome anyone seeking advice of a non-professional nature. Legal or medical advice is not permitted, and neither is advice on ways to get your partner to do something sexual that they’re not interested in. That said, from talking with my friends, I know there are some common lessons we all seem to be learning about dating, relationships, and love in this decade. All of us are different, but the potential learning curve is equally steep for most of us. And heartbreak will never kill us, anyway.

It’s unfortunate but this is clearly her biphobia/bias/uncertainty about dating a bi guy. If your bisexuality is not something you ever plan to act on then I don’t see any reason for you to disclose it. I’m sorry to say that I think you need to move on.

I’d met my partner, who’s 29 years older than me and who I am in what’s known as an age gap relationship with, at a gig eight months before. And despite the age gap, we eventually plan to get married. The generational issue almost put us off getting together at the start, but then we just thought “sod it! ” I’m in my 30s and was sick of bad boys – we decided to try and make it work. It’s pretty common to date someone who’s a few years younger or older than you, and often the age difference is no big deal. Sometimes, maturity levels match, even when ages don’t.

“I’ve been single for a very long time. I just want to be in a committed relationship — not sift through the garbage that lives on dating sites these days.” Ask friends to set you up with their other single friends – you’re not alone or weird for being single at any age, and people worth your time won’t judge you for it.

The year started with several friends getting engaged and crescendoed into an autumn that was awash with bridal showers and weddings where I was invited without a guest. I remember someone saying once (in a movie maybe?) that you can always tell when a friend is really in love because you don’t hear much from them about it. Sure, that has many exceptions, but by and large, I’ve realized that the happier I am, the less I feel the need to tell lots of people about my relationship in the same detail, because I don’t have as much to prove.
