I tried dating an 18-yr old when I was 25 and boy was it taxing. Was having an interesting convo with my friends the other day and they didn't seem to have a problem with it. Not because of the age difference itself, but because I doubt I could find a deep connection at age 26 with a 19 year old woman from a mental/knowledge, or maturity standpoint.Rarely did our conversations ever evolve beyond the purely superficial, and when they did, her thoughts would typically wander off in almost every conceivable direction. I'm indifferent towards the whole thing, I'm on the fence to be honest, not sure if I could do it or not. Judging from what my other boys have told me is that she's always been fond of older men.

So that's why this guy wanted to spend all his time with me but didn't want to be in an actual relationship with me." during the last few months of senior year—aka, the perfect time to start a relationship, right? I mean never." Of course, bringing it up is precisely what I did, and I completely jumped the gun.According to Jake, as long as you let your guy know how you feel about him, he will naturally start thinking about the commitment part on his own.He can also buy and sell real estate and stock, inherit property, enter into binding contracts, and, unfortunately, get sued.
