Dating younger guys in high school
But clearly, younger guys have some appeal (we have at least a little faith in Demi Moore), so what’s behind the cougar craze?Hilary Ricigliano, a sophomore at Syracuse University, loves dating her younger man.Also, by registering and logging in you'll see fewer ads and pesky welcome messages (like this one! He looks as old or older than me, but I have a few concerns that I think apply to a older-girl/younger-guy relationship: -Intelligence. He's VERY smart for his age, but I am too, so it's not much of an advantage. But I would probably never make the first move since I like manly sort of guys who can take charge...I sometimes see the age difference when we discuss coursework and such, but I know it'll even out...eventually. There's also longer term things that I'm not even considering right now (like when I go to college)!“In high school everyone is basically on the same level of maturity, but in college you gain so much independence,” Chelsea says.
“Looking back now, I didn’t really like dating a younger guy because I felt that he held me back from maturing and from meeting other people my age,” Chelsea says.Celebrities like Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz, Ivana Trump, and Linda Hogan all have had significant others more than 10 years their junior.With age differences sometimes pushing 20, or even 30 years, these couples obviously never learned (or at least, never followed) the “Never date anyone under half your age plus seven” Rule.“I've had more experiences through college and life, that he had not.That caused a logistical off-balance in our relationship, and resulted in our short-lived relationship,” she said.
