to be honest it all depends on who you ask years ago it was normal for a young woman to be with and older man but in today's world it is frowned on we can say she wants an older man because he have money or could go just be that men her age is not on her level and she likes older men but even so society frown on anything that they don't understand so the answer to your question is no
yes, i think that much of an age difference would be a problem, you probably wont like the same things or even understand each other half the time !(my husband is 10 years older than me, and i notice it from time to time. quick example..he likes the beatles...i never listened to them) where i live, an 18 year-old couldn't even enjoy a glass of wine at dinner with the 32 year old. the 18 year olds friends probably wouldnt get along to well with someone 32, not to mention the parents...so where could this possibly go! sorry to disappoint.
When l was 32, there was an 18 year old guy hitting on me! I thought it was weird, didn't take the bait. Yep, I'm the tigress! Thinking back, maybe I should have tried him out... That was 27 years ago!
I've always said Don't pick your top prim choice of meat where you work OR you may end up not making your bread there either. Anyway BIG age dif. Give the girl a chance with Young men her own age. Even you got that- Move On old fart. SORRY
of course not. whether it's the man that's older or the woman, it can completely work out. cougars are regarded highly in society and pedophiles even more so. i know this is probably counter to what you may have heard, but trust me when I say, go for the relationship!!
18 and 32. Both are adults. Anything two adults consent to in their private lives is between them. If the age difference doesn't bother either of you in any meaningful way, it really shouldn't matter what anyone else thinks of it.
Let me put it this way: if there is anything I or anyone else can say to, any opinion we can share, that will persuade you that love between two consenting, thinking, feeling, adult persons of at least moderately good mental competence is wrong under any circumstances, then you need to seriously reexamine you're situation, because I'm not sure you like this person strongly enough to even be bothered.
If you like her, then damn the haters is what I'm telling you. Maybe the generational gap will leave you with nothing to talk about or maybe you'll over come it np. But that issue is yours and hers to deal with alone. It's no one else's business.
Maturity levels...The 18 year old JUST got out of high school. You've been out of high school for the past 14 years! In those 14 years recall the experiences (bills, college, jobs, family?, etc). And the 18 year old's experiences (bullies, tests, college applications, summer jobs...)
When I was 16, my first serious boyfriend was 32 and we were together for 5 years. If you both put your all into it and respect your differences it can work, but be prepared for her to possibly get bored and think she's missed out on some things with guys her own age, that's what happened with us.
