What's Wrong With Dating Younger Man?

I'm dating a guy 3 years younger than me. He's 25 and I'm 28.

Is it wrong dating someone younger?  Yes, there is alot of opinions from outsiders, but you can not judge before you've been in the same situation.  And I've never been happier.

We are planning on getting married next year, and you can just imagine the comments about that.  "You'll be making the mistake of your life, it'll never work".  

Well age is not what makes a relationship work, but mutual respect, communication, trust, love and willingness to work on relationship.

It's normal. I and my wife are happily married for 27 years.

I am 19 years old and I'm going out with a 16 year old guy.

i dont think dating a younger guy is wrong.What matters is the marturity in him.And it doesnt mean tht all older men are marture...age aint a thing........am also dating a guy three yrs younger. at first i felt wierd bt i got userd to the fact tht there is more thn jst his age...i love him...................hun nthing should stop u plus stop thinking abt what they say its all about you and him not they...............go for it hun.wish you all the best

i dated a guy 2 years younger im 22 hes 20 ... we went out for just over a year and i thought we were gonna be together...the only thing is at this age we ended up breaking up because he feels like hes missing out on valuable life experiences like being young and free without consequence...and i just have to accept that because most of the guys he know and i know even at my age dont want responsibility..i think if we had of met in a few years then it may have worked and i think theres nothing wrong with younger guys but because mine feels like hes missing out thats wat hes gonna do....but at 25 i think they have a better understanding as to wat they want cause they have experinced wat they want to and ur more inclined to settle down...

I am also dating a guy 3 years younger. But I am 22 and he is 19. It's weird to think that I am dating a teenager. We have got a few comments from family but nothing too negative. I always thought that once we both hit out mid to late twenties, like you guys, it wouldn't be weird at all. I think some people are just never comfortable with a woman dating a younger guy...no matter the difference. I wish the both of you the best and hope I will be in this situation when I am your age :)

I am in the same situation right now. When I was 18 I dated a guy and we were together for 3 years then we just drift apart, eventhough we planned to get married and were serious, nothing happend. Now I embraced life in a different way I met this younger guy and I am having so much fun with him, we have been together for almost 6 months now and the only problem is that we are falling for each other and it is getting complicated, we are starting to feel something more, and that scares me. I don't want to fall in love and a couple years from now face the same destiny, I don't know what to do...How has it been for you?

nothing wrong to date/ marry / love a younger person <br />
3 years younger ....come on it is just 3 years<br />
<br />
anyway nothing wrong love and marry a 20 years younger man too .<br />
<br />
the only problem is think it's a problem !!! :-p

I have been talking with a guy for the past little while, and he is younger than me too. At first I thought it would be weird... but I think I'm gonna go for it. ; ) He's a really nice guy, he's sweet, funny and charming. Annnd, He's cute ; ) That's always a plus.

That's weird. I wouldn't listen to them. It's your life, do what makes YOU happy!
