Im 18 and dating a 26 year old

I'm think more along the lines of emotional maturity because I feel like there's a huge difference between being 20 and around 23.

She'll probably change a lot over the next couple years. I'm not saying not to date her, but I would keep it very casual for awhile.

The best advice I could give you, personally, is that her parents may be somewhat disapproving and it is very important that you respect their concerns.

My friend is 30 and in a relationship with a 21 year old.

Or will she just end up working shit jobs for the rest of her life while you foot the bill?

I personally would avoid anyone that doesn't already have a career in place at 25I dont know about some of these other people but I dated a girl 4 years younger than me and felt the big age difference. In the end I decided I would let her and I determine if we were on the right maturity level.

I think it's important to realise that a lot of things that may seem trivial or stupid to you (the older party) are going to be a big deal for your younger other half.

You have been there and experienced those things, you've learned that there are bigger fish to fry, but they will be experiencing it for the first time and it will have greater significance to them.

What do you think are signs of maturity for someone around that age?

I agree that five years isn't a big difference in the scheme of everything, but the gap between 20 and 25 is pretty significant. A 16 year old dating an 11 year old would be creepy.

She is also a big drinker - since she's just getting into that stage in life - whilst he has been there and done that and would rather settle for a few quiet beers in his house these days.

She spends a lot of time on social media stuff, gazing at her phone, trying to show him things and he rolls his eyes at her and treats her like she is dumb. I don't predict that it will last between them but it has been an eye-opening experience for me to watch them together. She also says that she is mature for her age, but I think the anyone who is actually mature doesn't need to verbalize that.

She kept talking about a lot of shit that I just refused to care about and it wasnt great. I should add that because of her childhood she was and is more mature than me.
