Can You Date A Girl Older Than You? by Adehwale: 8:39am On Nov 02, 2013
I've always had a crush on this paticular girl, she has always being my friend and we both know there is an age difference between both of us. In this case, she's a bit older than me. I find it hard asking her out because I feel it would look awkward dating someone older than I am. I have a feeling I wont be comfortable in that kind of relationship knowing she is older than me.
Now, guys I would like to know ur view on this. Can you date a girl that is obviously older than you? And do you think the relationship can work out well in that kind of situation?

Ofcourse yes, i can date a girl older than me with less say not more than 3years. @op, everything depends on you, women regardless of their age wants a guy who can always be in control, who can always defend, protect, care and love them. If you can prove all dese 75%....bro she'l respect u as if ure older. But d moment u realize she'z startin to feel superior, next bus stop pls

I can date a girl older than me but when it comes to marriage I'm not really sure. Some will say age is just a number, but at times it's not just a number. This is what they all say to marry their mama or papa's age mate.smh.

All dis crap about age being just a number! Thumbs up to d person dat said n so is jail just a room. Anytime dis topic comes up I'm quick to point out dis fact dat yes maturity matters a lot, bt dere are 2 tinz dat determine maturity, age n experience. Ur damn age is d number of yrs u hv spent on dis earth n d more d yrs, d more d experience n d more ur damn maturity is expected to increase bt all our expectations do not come true. Quite alright it dosent always hv to add up dat a 30yr old woman will b more mature Dan an 18yr old, bt who are u kidding? Wat are d chances? It's lyk 70-30%! Dear op, just make sure u n d lady in question are mature enough to give each oda respect. It's kinda a human default thinking to luk down at anyone younger except of cos dey are at a higher position. BT age does f * * king matter. Maybe wen an 18yr old decides to marry ur grandfather, age won't just b a number anymore.

If age is just a number, is cell just a room? undecided

For those saying they can date ladies older than them but can't marry them, why will u date someone u can't marry,(except u are dating for some odd reasons). I honestly think it's absurd. As for me, age is NOT just a number, it matters, hence I can't marry/date an older lady.

Re: Can You Date A Girl Older Than You? by Oluwatola5(f): 2:19pm On Nov 03, 2013
Well i think the girl's consent to such such be sought first. If she is okay with it, you can go on. You can just use style to find out if she can date someone younger. Some girls dont feel comfortable about such. Me personally, i am finicky about such idea. Nah!!!! Not just me!!!

Please DO NOT be deceived, when it comes to interaction between human beings, dating or otherwise, age is NOT just a number.

But that being said, u can't put every situation in the same box. It may work for you.

Imagine that?? Dating a teenager?? Tufiakwa.

The fact of the matter is, different developmental milestones create big problems. Its wrong from all levels.

Can I date an older lady?
HECK NO!! Even Adam was a few days older than eve.

Can a Relationship work under such circumstances?
Yes ofcourse. Depends on a lot though, and you're gonna be facing a whole lot more challenges but it can work.

Age is not just a number. This becomes really apparent when the age difference is not 1 or 2 but 10 and above.
