Apr 11, 9. If you're seeking a long-term relationship with them, it's a little weird simply because you're at different places in your lives; there will be quite a bit of disconnect. My wife is five years older than me. A 16 year old dating an 11 year old would be creepy. If she can engage with you and talk to you and doesn't feel like she has to protect herself or play up to your expectations then I would say that she is fairly mature for her age. Whomever started that cougar and milf shit should die in a fire. Five years doesn't rate as an age gap when you are an adult.
She, on the other hand, never seemed to get over the age gap.
But, had she been OK with the gap as I wasthe relationship may have lasted a good bit longer. I was 27, he was At 23, you learn how to take care of yourself and how to truly be independent. It's not wrong to consider it, either, but talking about it in this particular way reinforces a lot of gross sexist norms so I suggest not bringing it up like this around other people or around this woman. Personality is something you're born with and doesn't change much over time, because you have a core from your genetics, and modifications of that core from environment.
