Im 18 dating 28 year old
I turned 24 yesterday and for the past year, I've been back in school. Life in school has been pretty much the same every day.
There are girls everywhere but I feel like I'm not allowed to talk to them or be interested in them, so I stay alone in my corner and never talk to anyone. Nobody knows my age of course, I try to keep it a secret.
So why is there a stigma if a 28 year old is dating a 19 year? Many times you'll have a less mature 25 year old guy and a very mature 19 year old girl and they'll really hit it off. In general a 30 year old should not be dating a 19 year old. It would be different if she was 22/23 and he was 30.
Back in February I spent some time with a guy friend named George who had just been dumped. She is successful in her career, a lot of fun and quite attractive.
He had spent almost a year and literally tens of thousands of dollars on numerous IVF treatments in an effort to have a baby with his 43-year-old fiancee. He even flew to London to buy the engagement ring from an auction after she saw it in a catalogue. In the years I had known her I had never once heard her lament her dating life, much less verbalize any long-term goals about it. Age 28, which was only three years ago for me, was a massive turning point in my life. The list goes on, but the point is that the magic number 28 as The Age of Matrimony may worm its way into women's minds without them even realizing it. Our society has put a bizarre stigma on single women over 30.
"Most women I know who really want the husband and the family decide this early on, in their 20s, not when they're pushing middle age," I said.
At 28, you're still young enough to change your life, if need be, and no one would think you were foolishly starting from scratch. It's kind of like when you were in second grade and everyone had a Cabbage Patch Kid and you suddenly felt the need for one, even if you thought Preemies and Koosas were kind of weird.
