I was 22, single and enjoying the fact that bars in the city stayed open until 4 a.m. On our first date, I was telling Michael about my upcoming birthday plans when the truth came out."How old are you again? But I'm actually turning 23." I was really nervous he would freak out, but instead he started to laugh."Oh, wow," he said. My friends couldn't believe how old he was, but they could see how happy I was. I cringed as Michael cracked an inappropriate joke about my girlfriend's low-cut shirt—I think it was his attempt at "college humor." The last straw was when he bought a round of Grey Goose shots for everyone.Out one night near my apartment, I pressed myself against the bar and tried to get the bartender's attention. He was cute, I observed, broad-shouldered and solidly built."Whiskey is an old man's drink," I said."Oh, really? "You're a young one." I said I hadn't wanted to scare him off by telling him my real age, and he agreed that he probably wouldn't have gotten my number if he had known I was so young. It was obvious to me that he was trying so hard to impress my friends, and it just made him seem even older and more out of touch. I was young, excited to explore the city, constantly drinking too much and staying out until last call.My God, if pontificating about the love lives of other people is the best we can do with our free time, then it's no damn wonder our country and the world is in the sorry state it is currently in. Like I said my husband is 15 years older than me but we have been married for 13 years now. As far as I'm concerned, as long as both parties are of legal age then it isn't anybody's business but theirs.by Mike K (Virginia) My wife and I have been married since April, 2008.My God, if pontificating about the love lives of other people is the best we can do with our free time, then it's no damn wonder our country and the world is in the sorry state it is currently in.
Even some minor drug possession charges that may have been overlooked at 17 can lead to some jail time at 18.
My mom is only 4 years older than him so looking at that perspective I don't know. Not all guys that are older than the female are total pervs though some are, just like not all young women are immature, some are more mature for their age.
I guess it would just be judgment on what you feel.
I felt like every time we went to a fancy restaurant, the maître d' thought I was Michael's daughter.
We would kiss at the table, and I'd catch (or maybe it was my imagination) the waiter's surprised look, and then I felt like he'd pegged me as some kind of gold-digger.
