Everyone thought we were the same age because she looked young.If I were to date someone 19 now, I would have the same reservations as you.We got along great and the age difference wasn't an issue for either of us. I feel ready for a lifelong, committed relationship. We are both quite spiritual in a very non religious way and work together in that way quite beautifully.I was several years older than 19, but, I don't regret or think I lost anything in the period of our time together. We don't look physically or energetically like there's an age gap. I don't want to be a casuality in his love life since he is so young It was the same for us at the time.We are very happy and natural together when I let it flow. Years back, I dated a woman that was 12 years older than me.We talk about a serious future together as we have very compatible life goals, but I worry him being with me is stopping him from experiencing other people and happiness in his life. It was a serious relationship which lasted just over 5 years.I find his age of 19 to be more of a concern than the age difference.If he were 30 and you 49, then he would be an adult with likely enough life experiences, personally and professionally, to know what he wants in a life partner. I would enjoy the moment with him as he is with you.
95% of 19 year-olds out there simply don't understand how the real world works and don't have the same sense of understanding that older people do.
If you're over 25 (and that's generous) and dating a 19 year old there's probably something wrong.
Recycled LRC: having sex with a teenager is like playing tennis with a retard. Uhhh, it's weird because you're using someone with nowhere near your maturity level purely to get sex. Honestly, it's probably only one or two rungs above the guys you see on To Catch a Predator trying to meet up with 15 year-olds.
I think the thing I worry about is that when I was19, I thought I was ready for certain things, too.
I can't believe the ways I've learned the things I know about mself. Back in the day, people married for life as teenagers.
