Guys get by w/ dating younger girls...why can't we date younger guys?

So Im 26. My boyfriend is 19 (almost). We used to work together so that's how we met. We have mutual friends so we were always hanging out together. He doesn't look nor act like his age (only sometimes lol). He makes me happy and I make him happy.

So why do some people think it's wrong for me to date a younger guy when guys get by with it all of the time? Screw them.

  • It's a double standard you won't change because of evolution and biology.

  • I think most people feel like men mature slower than women do, so they assume a younger guy would be way below you maturity wise and they think it's weird. Even if he is, I say more power to you and don't bother with what anybody else thinks if he makes you happy! (My hubby is substantially older than me, and let me just say that there are negative attitudes about that as well, people just like to judge)

  • I've never had one person ever say anything to me about me dating younger men. SO is 6 yrs younger than me. I've dated older men and men more than half my age. I've not had any problems with friends or family giving me grief over it.

  • It's not wrong and anybody who tells you different is just jealous.

  • Cheers sister!  I dated and married a younger man and it's the way to go!  I just tell people that I was trying to bridge the death age gap between me and my spouse. : )
