Is it normal to be almost 30 and only date girls who are 18-20?

I'll spare you guys my typical philosophical preface and cut to the chase.

I'm nearly 30, and have never dated a girl older than 20. As a non believer of commitment and long-term relationships, I usually don't tell girls my age, and likewise, they rarely ask (and simply assume I'm the same age they are). It helps that nearly every stranger says I look like an undergrad. I'm 6'1'', so it's obviously not a height thing.

While the general societal "norms" are of no concern to me (hence why I keep doing what I'm doing), sometimes I wonder what would happen if, say, one of her parents found out. Does it fall outside the scope of acceptability?


I bring this up here and now because I've been talking with a girl on and off for a month now. She showed me her instagram account yesterday, and I was able to get her last name and did a quick search. Found out her dad is senior exec (as in a Chief ___ Officer) of a large multinational financial services company. She just turned 18 and is starting her freshman year next month.

Normally this would be a non-issue. I'd do what needs to be done and move on (excuse the pun).

But to say I'm not (slightly) intimidated/hesitant would be untrue.
Most likely it'll be a non-issue. She always texts me saying how she "misses me", (keeping in mind she has never met me in person yet. But given my personality, this happens too often).
If a girl truly has feelings for a guy, then age is irrelevant(?)

Funny, this ended up being more a post of self-assurance than actual seeking of advice.

Monaco is there something wrong with this? Obviously not from a legal stand point but I think you know the answer whether this falls in or outside the scope of acceptability.

Are you after a woman with a developed brain or that "good good" for a lack of a better PC word is the question

You should give up Tinder (im assuming thats where you talk to a lot of young girls since you havent met her before) and join a Yoga class that's where I get the best good good. last month i got with a forever21 model and now i can get run over by a bus and say ive worked on both types of models before

you work at a hedge fund man you're a young master of the universe, you can do better than a freshman in college

How can you stand the conversation, and not want to blow your brains out. Conversing with women under 25 is painful. Sure, when you are in your late 30's and want to settle down younger can buy you time to start a family, but she's already over 30, and likely has reached the maturity threshold where you can actually talk. Although some people are just idiots.

From a different stand point, girls under 20 who understand that you have money and they want to make you happy, that is solid. There is an unspoken understanding that you should never cross unless you want to look like Connor Roy from Succession.

Your threads are pure gold. Also I haven't noticed a huge difference across ages tbh. 97% of the population is super basic. Just look out for #travel #hiking #yoga

While its not illegal...when the age diff is more than 4-5 are over the age of 24, you really shouldn't be dating girls under 21. Presumably you'll grab drinks together at some point...and that mens you'll be prividing alcohol to an underage girl...which creates a huge negative stigma. However, girls older than 21, there should not be an issue with social stigma.

Girls under 21 tend to be so very inexperienced on the mental / psychological level...they think they are mature...but they really aren't...and you know exactly what i'm talking about. However, by the time girls are over 21, they usually have had enough life experience where you won't be taking advantage of their naivete.

Not a legal thing....but a social stigma thing...and this should be pretty obvious.

just google're welcome
