Dating someone who is younger than you
It's not that I didn't want what she wanted, I just wasn't ready for it yet and she was.
She also had certain expectations in what she wanted in a relationship having had many more years than I did, and if I would stumble or fall emotionally in the relationship I feel like she was less forgiving than if we had been closer in age.
When you realize that you can't really do much of anything in a social setting; the relationship is already over. If one is 19 and the other is 25 then you are going to have a bad time because most 19 year-olds are ignorant and irresponsible. I had just graduated from college and was spending most of the money I got from graduation on going out to the bar and getting fucked up with my best friend every night.
He told me I needed to stop "acting like a 21 year old." I was like uh..
Celebs like Nick Cannon, Demi Moore, George Clooney, and Julianne Moore have all dabbled in the world of dating a younger partner–and some of these matches even ended in wedding bells!
Also being from slightly different generations meant that we had less in common and she would feel a little frustrated with that connection.
Obviously this is only one person's experience and others will vary, but this is all I could contribute.
She had many more years of life experience and wisdom to draw on, and we had great conversations. She wanted it more than girls my age did and it was seriously the best sex I've ever had.
Cons: We were at different points in our life in terms of long-term goals.
