Dating older person
No matter what, they feel like they can drop this card at any time. No, I wasn’t old enough to see that movie in theaters and I am too young for those pop culture references to be funny, but please keep quoting that movie, it thrills me. Whatever it means to you, whether 18 or 21 is the benchmark age separating you, one person crossing that threshold years and years ahead of the other person totally sucks AND THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT. When you’re 30, they’ll be 36 and that’s not that big of an age difference, right? but for now your’e 16 and they’re 22, which is a bigger deal. They’re just starting their career and you’re still in high school – those are two totally different life levels. Honestly, they might not come to prom with you if they are out of high school.
No matter what you’re talking about, fighting about, what’s going on, if they aren’t getting their way, they can always simply state that they’ve been alive for longer than you and then BAM! For one person, they’ve been waiting forever to finally reap all of the privileges of being 18 or 21, so now that they have to lag behind to keep you included totally sucks, I’m not going to lie about it. We all know in the future it won’t be a huge deal, but for right now, for your life currently in this moment, on paper, it’s might not be a good idea. People develop at different speeds and reach milestones at different times and that totally affects what you value and what you think is fun.
Basically, I mean dating someone who is significantly older and in a completely different place in life than you are.
8) You want different things out of life or you want them at different times.You’ll probably end up lying, and honestly, that’s just exhausting.3) Mansplaining takes on a whole new form with this exact flavor of, “Well, I’m older, so I just know better” condescension. 4) The never ending “how old were you when THIS THING happened” game sucks.We think they have their lives together and that they’re much more grown up than any of the dudes we see on a regular basis.And sometimes, we would be right – except, uh, the older guys who are stable in that way have their lives together enough to stay away from girls who are a lot younger than them. If someone is hanging around with people in a much younger state of life, it’s because they’re falling behind – and sometimes it’s even totally illegal.
