I’m hardly the perfect picture of what a grown woman should look like, but I sure seem like it compared to most 23-year-old guys I know.Are there older men out there who haven’t mentally moved past age 15? But they’re a lot harder to find than immature early-twenty-somethings. I’m already a few years into my career and living on my own, and lots of guys my age are still in the process of finding their footing outside of college.
When you’re in your early twenties, it’s a lot harder to find a guy your age who prefers a night in to a night out. Maybe by the time I’m in my thirties, I’ll get a second wind and want to go a little crazy with a guy who’s a few years younger than me.But as long as you can be open about your issues with the relationship, it should all end happily ever after (maybe).Some things to remember about seriously dating someone younger than you.Even when I was a kid-kid, all the actors I had a crush on were usually in their early thirties at the youngest. I kind of like the slightly unbalanced power dynamic.I once felt weird about it, but at this point in my life, I’m comfortable with what and who I like, and I’m going to go for it. Okay, look — I’m a staunch feminist, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to be a part of a relationship in which my partner thinks I’m a lesser human being than he is.
