Bro you ain't just 21+, you're like almost 40. I feel weird dating people less than 21 as is. I'm genuinely curious about what you even talk about/have in common with a 19 year old

To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.

Last time I dated a 19 year old I was 22. I could barely tolerate the difference in maturity then. In my 30's it seems like it would be much more trouble than it's worth.

Only two sources I trust, Glenn Beck and singing woodland creatures.

She's cute, solid 8. But dude if you're looking to date her and not just hook up, wouldn't it be kinda weird if she wants you to meet her parents? Lmao you're closer to her dads age than to her age. My own concern would be if we were on the same page on a lot of things. 38 and 19 year olds, in general, have different goals and lifestyles choices.

Regardless, she's a legal adult and consenting adult, ignore the haters.Β

I think this is just pretty much normal. I only talk to 18 - 25 yr olds for dating .... she's just within the range. The chick that gave me her number at the grocery store was acceptable though also and was 28, which was an exception.Β 

Also, I think this chick mainly wants to hookup and I want to date. I need to set the terms somehow.Β

Some men like to date women young enough to be their daughter.Β  It doesn't usually last well, long term, but if both parties are primarilyΒ  just interestedΒ  in the physical aspect of the relationship,Β  it can work. Assuming she understands what she is gettingΒ  into with a middle aged man who calls women "chicks", I would guess she does, and is experienced in these matters already.

If you think these comments are abusive, wait until you start dating her. Eye roll. You did ask for opinions.

Bruh when you were her age / 19Β in college she was a fetus. Fine to hook up but how do you date someone that far away from your life experience? If you have any intention of settling down and starting a family at some point, you probably should date women who are psychologically ready to do that. If you wait another 5 years to marry and have kids, you'll be 60 when they graduate high school. Not a huge deal but I would assume given your active lifestyle that you would also want to be active when kids leave the nest (which would also be close in parallel with your retirement).

Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes.

Apr 9, 2021 - 1:57pm

As long as you are not reducing a person to a single characteristic without considering their full complexity and autonomy, I see nothing wrong here.Β Two consenting 18+ adults can do whatever they want.

It's a noted phenomenon that has existed for nearly eternity that men are naturally attracted to women within a certain age range because of their fertile windows. Biologically, men can successfully reproduce for nearly their entire life while women can not. Biological preferences dictate that men prefer women who are fertile and can handle the physical rigors of a pregnancy, while women prioritize men who have the sufficient means to provide for their young, making them less discriminatory with regards to age.

Ask someone who says it's "creepy" exactly why they subscribe to this notion, they will likely not be able to give a cogent argument.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/15/style/dating-apps-online-men-women-a…

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/283454064_The_Gendered_Dynamic…

This study shows that while men's preferences tend to trend younger relative to their own age as they grow older, women's age preferences are more diverse.Β

Been with a few milfs myself, honestly exploring the dating scene outside of what's traditional is freeing and a learning experience.

2. Take her rock climbing, physical and fun.

3. Weather is getting nice, rent a boat and go out on the water if you're near enough.

4. Take her to the gun range and shoot your hearts out. Great guns = great fun.

5. You're into cycling right? Take her cycling, do a race/marathon. Mountain biking could be fun.

6. Go hunting, unless she's a woke vegan, if she is don't do this! (AskΒ me how I know)

7. Paramotoring is fun, might need to take a couple classes first though.

8. Do a day trip somewhere nice, I know you hate driving, but could be fun.

Apr 3, 2021 - 3:35pm

Nothing wrong with it but you should take into consideration what you actually value and where her priorities are (at 19 she probably doesn't know yet) at this stage and how they might change. Dating her could always end up great or end up bad, but there is no way of knowing until you at least attempt to be in a relationship. At the end of the day, even if it turns out bad, I'm sure there are a lesson or two that you could take away from it. Basically, if it makes you happy and you both have similar or no deal breaker values, then I would go for it. Life is too short not to do shit that you want to do due to fear (in this case age difference). Good luck man!

Dated an 18-year old when I was 20, and while she and I were great, it was pretty tough being around her friends even though we were basically the same age, and I feel the same way now (at 26) looking at 21-22 year olds. There's a huge ramp in maturity from freshman to senior year of college, and then another huge ramp in maturity once you get out of school.Β

I'm supportive of two consenting adults doing whatever the hell they want, but I personally would feel weird dating someone below 23 or so at my age (and that number will probably go up as I get older)

Gonna be a strange evening for these dudes who dying for for MF l-PE/HF/greatness when they go out one evening and their 40 plus sr MD/partner will be flirting beyond belief with the 20yoΒ waitress. Wonder if they will call that dude a pedo.

Yeah exactly, these keyboard warriors won't say sh*t in person.Β

Yep, that's the weird part for me. You want to bang a teenager? Slightly creepy, but sure, go ahead.Β You restrict your *dating age range* for serious, emotional relationshipsΒ to teenagers? You're a fucking weirdo.Β 

Wow we don't have the same preferences. Thanks for your invaluable comments and contributions. You haven't lived my life and you haven't had to deal with someone with years of emotional baggage. Seriously get me away from that - never again. Yes, I am looking for marriage material and want to have lots of kids - something that someone in their older 30s can't always provide.Β

Tell her you are at an EB, and when she asks what is that, just whip it out

You guys won't believe it - I got reservations at Dorsia. She is going to love it.Β

80 is probably too much, but there are plenty of smoking hot cougars in 40-60 age group. I had a lady who was almost 60 and she was fun. She's a teacher as well and was telling me about some student I reminded her of, lol.

I look at this from a practical view. Are you interested in having kids? If so, you're running out of time. Someone that young won't know what they want, and will take up your time. Even girls that I meet that are 25 are playing games, but girls who are 21 and younger will just ghost you because they feel like it lol For you I would probably look for girls around 27 who kind of know what they want, and hopefully within 2 years you can have kids.

In terms of dating, date whoever you want. There will definitely be barriers driven by differences in age, but anything is possible.Β

I'm not running out of time. I could still probability have kids for decades. Do you understand male biology?

Go for it, but my gut tells me that when she finds out your fuck game ain't that of a 21 year old, she'll leave you for one. Just make sure you don't invest in her emotionally. Have fun, young pussy is great

obviously not "illegal" or anything but still super weird. maybe it could work but it's a bad look bud. I'd stick with partners close to your age. She's a teenager!!

It's a bad look? Well maybe you should stick to partners close your own age if that's what you want.

I think the hate here on [Isaiah_53_5 πŸ’ŽπŸ™ŒπŸ’ŽπŸ™ŒπŸ’Ž] is a little over done.Β  It might seem a little weird to some but I think the dude is just flexing a little.Β  The reality is that most older men are going want to date younger women.Β  Β I think that most people here think, he is going a little too low in age and that is a fair point.Β Β

I think the hate is compounded byΒ being so socially oblivious that he posted the girl's picture on a finance forum, and rightly so.Β The judgement from aΒ grown man should be infinitely better than that.Β But the guy went to a finance forum to source dating ideas for a teenagerΒ so he obviouslyΒ isn't winning in critical thinking.Β 

He clearly suffersΒ from a weird combination of being blatantlyΒ insecure andΒ trying to flex like he isn't.Β 

Just had my trade dispute rejected by Schwab for a loss of 35k. This single issue alone should be a gigantic red flag to anyone who trades on their platform.

I did not see the pic.Β  I am going to assume that the girl looked young.Β  That is something I would never do because I would not be certain about how old she is and my risk tolerance is lowΒ  For all you know, she could be underaged.

There are a bunch of interns on here - I thought I would get some decent feedback, but obviously it was a mistake asking a bunch of insecure anonymous keyboard warriors for dating advice.

That is a better range.Β  What would the parents think of a teen girl bringing home a guy close to 40. I have a teen girl ( underaged) and I am not sure how I would react if when she is 18, if she brought home a guy that is close to 40

This is partly what I wanted to talk about on here as I had the same thought. But, people just want to attack me.

She is in college - I didn't know college girls were off limits, but it seems too much for WSO to handle.

Yeah 22-25 is a good range.

I'm OP's age (so not a college kid) and this is Matt Gaetz level weird (maybe more cause it's on online forum - guy gotta be lonely). Doesn't have to be underage, but hanging out at FSU bars for under 21s, sharing pictures / videos with others, showering them with gifts and nice things and probably keeping a scorecard somewhere.

First - I don't dislike the guy, I feel bad for him. Let's use a map as a simile to demonstrate this situation...

If IsaiahΒ recognizesΒ that hisΒ mapΒ is broken (he said he has issues), and then he triesΒ to use said mapΒ to get to a destinationΒ ... That's problematic. The overwhelming rejection seen in this thread should signal that Isaiah'sΒ map is not shared amongst many, whether heΒ wants to adjust to that signal is up to him.Β All I can say is...

Isaiah, go fix your map please. Stop seeking validation on the internet. Do not beginΒ journeys (relationships) with someone so young and causeΒ damage to their map while yours still has so much work needed. It's selfish of you.Β

Personally 27 and prefer to date 19-21 merely as a method of finding someone that will maintain their looks for the longest amount of time possible. Do note that I am effectively accepting the fact that she won't have a large (if any) income and it's fairly likely that she won't be the sharpest tool either.Β 

For someone that is 40 and looking to date 18-20, I'm somewhat lost. The same motives I have lose some of their value in this case because IMO the priorities shift from having a hot S/O to having an S/O that wants to have kids very fast with the rest being secondary/tertiary etc.

I'm not 40 and my range on dating apps is 18 - 25. It's not one sided - they have to put in my range and accept me as well.
