Guy 27, Girl 19 Anything Wrong With That?

Fri Aug 24, 2007 3:40 pm

The title says it all. If a guy of 27 and a girl of 19 are very much in love, should the age difference be a major factor? Would you consider such a relationship very odd? May be a silly question, but you would be surprised at the different opinions people have.

No, not in the beginning. The freshness of a new relationship is always exciting at first, but eventually the novelty will wear off. Enjoy the company of a 19 yr old while you can...make the most of it. But I predict it will not last. Rarely does a relationship with a person before they're an adult usually does last. So enjoy now, prepare for the fall later.
Regards.

Is this hypothetical or is this a practical question (ie are YOU interested in a 19-year-old girl)?

I only ask because the answer to your question is- it all depends on the people. The age difference may not matter with one couple while it could doom the next. It all depends on the people involved.

Not to start a flame war or anything, but I can imagine the responses would be very different if it was about a 17 year old and a 21 year old. Such relationships are illegal in many jurisdictions, but they happen more often than you think. Its funny how we can set some magical number where everything somehow becomes okay; I think whether theres anything wrong with a relationship depends on a lot of things (i.e. maturity). Of course co-ersion is also something that many worry about with age differences; such concerns seem to be more prevalent when its the male that is older.

In my case, my girlfriend and myself are also apart by eight years, only that she is 32 and I'm 40 years old.
And it is working since 7 years, even though we have the additional handicap of living in different countries.

I know of bigger age gaps. All the best to the both of you, 19 is old enough and mature enough to get through things so not much issues I think

19 year olds rarely are the same person when they're twenty....alot of growing up is happening...so enjoy the ride while it lasts.....

the difference between 19 and 27 is much greater than 32 and 44....a 32 year old woman knows what she wants

As long as you are at equivalent levels of maturity I don't see a problem. 19 year old girls can have difficulty discussing things other than what was on TV last night or what their friends said to them on IM that day.
Things were better when it was two guys in a dorm room.

If you two want each other for the moment, have a ball and don't listen to what some naysayers here are telling you. Just don't get her pregnant.

!9 is ok by me. She is legal and nobody can change that. However, 19 is still young and has a lot of growing up to do. By the time 27 rolls around you should have plenty of life experience. Your level of maturity may be different, but maybe not I don't know either one of you. If you dig each other roll with it. I once dated a woman who was 20 years older than me. It was great. People gave us crap about it all the time. Her job transferred her out of state and I was still in college. So it didn't work out, but hey I still had a great time.

I thought I got an 18 year old pregnant when I was 23. Scared the hell out of both of us. Turned out to be nothing. I was sweating bullets.

If you want to bed her, then do right by the girl and marry her - then get her pregnant before she knows what happened.  biggrin 

In all seriousness, though, you should ask each other some important questions before you proceed into something more serious.

  checkmark 

25+ post and no one has ever taken in to consideration on what the guy wants. Perhaps this 19 year old lady is what he wants and if she likes him, no one should say jack$h!t.


The chatty, dingy immature 19 year old ladies you all speak of will be chatty, dingy and immature in there 40s. The only difference is stretchmarks and wrinkles and probably a few children by various men.
Not all young women fall in to this ding-bat stereotype. There are plenty of young women that are serious about there education, read a lot and involve themselves with organizations, activities and surround themselves with people that will cultivate her career. Plenty of book worms in this age group too. These bimbos that you guys speak of don't even think to read a book until it's advertised on Oprah when they're over 35. Some young women want to start families at a young age too. I don't buy this myth that all young women are the bimbos on MTV that many here are painting.

Umm some, not all. I know plenty of girls who were fucking retards at 19 and after they turned 21 or 22 became decent, intelligent members of society.

Interesting responses. I personally think it depends on the exact person as we cannot really generalize. People are different. However more often than not the immaturity of a younger person shows up from time to time. But at the same time you can find yourself in a relationship with someone your own age, and still encounter immaturity. I guess it is worth the try.
