Please don't take offense, I'm not one to voice my opinions and I'm not going to elaborate for fear of offending even more. If my 18 year old daughter was dating someone that was 26, I wouldn''t be confortable with it. If she was more mature and more adult than 8 years won't matter. In other words if she was 26 and he was 34 then she'* more mature. When I was 18. I was still trying to figure out what I wanted out of life.



Sorry

i have mixed feelings on this. i think in general, if the roles are reversed, it would be ok, but i dont believe that most females have any idea of what they want, and tend to be very dramatic and a handfull to deal with until they are 21 atleast.

I cant really say much.. Im 23 and my wife is 35......
but if you ask anyone that knows us, they would think that i was older and she was younger, people think we are both in our mid-late 20s

it really depends on the people involved...

thATS THE kinda oppinions im looking for... dont worry no offense taken..
see her father liked me... well that was till he found out how old i was...
her mother on the other had didnt like me at all cause as soon as i was around
she didnt wanta sit at home anymore...

but i dont get how someone can like me till they find out how old i am then not like me...
ya i guess they are a little upset cause of my age and its understandable
but they shouldnt be like you cant see him anymore.. she is an adult.. she can make her own choices... i can understand if they say im not allowd at there house anymore... ok thats fine... but.. im just tryin to finish my college degree and get into the military.. i wasnt looking for a girl she came to me... but i like this one cause she looks good and is clean... and im sure some of the young crowd can atest to how hard it is to find a good looking girl that dont do drugs!!!

Sorry
I agree with this statement, it'* not the age difference, it'* the mental maturity, the girl I was head over feet for when I was 18 is far different from the woman whom I married and is the perfect match for me. Those late teen years were a transitional period from thinking about whom I wanted to be, and finding out exactly who I am. Changes in life, goals, and experience all happen around that time.

If you enjoy each other company that'* great, but just be carefull not to set yourself up for a major heart ache when in a year or two she'* ready expand and thinks you two aren't such a match. I'm not saying it CAN'T work, just be carefull.

Pmom and I are 7 years apart and married now ......(let me get this right) 15 years.

Your going to find the generation thing come into play throughout your relationship but if you both have open minds and are tolerable of each others likes and dislikes you'll be fine.
