Dating an 18 year old jewish dating and marriage
To be honest, I felt more uncomfortable about it than herself, or anybody else. If they don't have anything in common, then it's not a real relationship.
Btw all of her 19-year old friends also have 24/25 year old boyfriends: My best friend (24) is now with her friend (same age as she) and she has another friend with the same age difference. If they DO have things in common, the 29 year old is either immature, or the 18 year old is extraordinary. What if it was your 18 year old son dating a 29 year old woman?
I think stage of life matters more than age in this case. Granted, I'm probably thinking of twenty-nine as an age by which you've accumulated a bit of real Life Experience, learned to interview while hungover and also learned not to continue getting hangovers, held grown-up jobs, paid bills, learned to fix stuff, possibly been married, perhaps bred.....18?
Very few 18 year-olds would have any real idea of what that's about.
However "She might also think this is more just a casual thing even though nothing has been promised or implied" is a big no. When last I saw him, he was days away from 30 and now dating an 18 y/o. Last I heard, a couple months ago, they were still together and had just had a child together. When I was 19, my bf was 25, but a) it was a very serious relationship (we were together for about three years); and b) the age difference felt fairly significant to both of us. I know a guy in his late 20s/early 30s who periodically shows up at parties with 18-year-old dates. My impression is that he likes dating very young women because they're more easily impressed and don't expect as much as women his own age. Personally IMO marriage should be in your mid- or late- 20's.
If there's a chance that she thinks it's going to be more than casual, it's not going to work. Think about I used to know a guy who started dating a much younger girl. Also, most 18 year-old women aren't emotionally in a place to do a "casual sex" relationship the way a 29-y-o (man or woman, but esp. So if you take marriage out of the picture, I think it's not a bad learning experience at all.
But, my wife always more mature than her years would account for. Not sure why, just something seems unequal about that. As my fiancee says, "It's not the years, it's the mileage, babe." Not really sure what he means. I remember what I was like at 18, and I was a totally different person.
Guess I'll just have to deal with always having a wife 10 years younger than me. I'm 29, and I have to say that the idea of having a relationship with an 18-year-old feels slightly... Put me and the 18-year-old me in the same room, and we wouldn't like each other much.
Investigators are asking anyone who may have been victimized by Steffey or who may have information related to this investigation to call Detective Nick Caronna at 760-326-9200.When I was 19 I started to have a casual sex relationship with a 29 year old. He'd think I was slow and stupid, and I'd think he was a snotty know-it-all.If the girl is inexperienced, which I take to mean that she doesn't have a lot of 'mileage' as far as becoming a responsible adult (ie, job, taxes, place of their own, etc), I'd be VERY uncomfortable with it. I would hope most 29 year-olds wouldn't have much in common with an 18 year-old.It was a little odd for me a year later when I was a 30-year-old who was dating a girl who was 19, but it wasn't hard to laugh it all off. Somehow a two week fling turned into a two year relationship. I mean there are plenty of 29 year olds that shouldn't be with other 29 year olds, and there are plenty of people who have a much smaller age difference, with it being more creepy.Funny thing was that before she and I started dating, there were girls older than her that I rejected as being too young. But if it hadn't, that would have been fine with us, too. Like a 21 year old and a 17 year seems really sketchy to me. I'm sure there are thousands of 18-year-olds out there that I wouldn't have trouble having a relationship with in real life, but the abstract concept doesn't feel good.
