  • It depends on his maturity level and what he has accomplished in life. I believe any single parent (fathers OR mothers) should only date people who will be preprared to be instant parents themselves. Is that something he can handle..and handle well? Some 21 year olds are almost done with college and know where they will be in the next couple of years. Others are just enjoying the party life and won't be able to handle all the responsibilites of instant family. So which one is he?

  • I couldn't handle a 21 year old. Too lame. Maybe this one is different, though.

  • He is in college right now and he works while he is back in town during the summer, he does construction and works with some of my family member... he wants to be text buddies but I am not too sure about it... he status on myspace shows a lot of partying going on.

  • Oh in that case be friends without flirting or any potential romance going on. You don't really know him at all so get to know him. Talk online and by phone and see if you even like the guy or if he likes you. Don't give any serious thought to dating if you know little about him. Its the deep thoughts, values, common sense, personality, and every day ways that will show you what he's really all about.

  • I dated a 21 year old when I was 26. We talked on the phone/computer for 3 months first, but I liked him so I decided to give it a try. I didn't introduce him to my children until we had been dating for 7 months. We are now happily (on most days lol) married.

  • armywife6628- There is a HUGE difference between a man being 25 and the woman being 21 than the other way around. Men tend to me more immature at 21 than a woman of the same age.

    I still say go for it if you like him.

  • Well I just got married and my husband is 22 to my 26 yrs. Sooo it all depends on the 2 individuals and where they are trying to go with the relationship.
