Posts I'm a 38 year old guy in a relationship with a 24 year old girl. It's going really, really well, easily the best relationship I've ever had. She is an extremely intelligent, confident and interesting girl, also as a nice bonus extremely hot, the type that most guys drool over. She has plenty of attractive, fun male friends of a similar age to her, but she hasn't had a great experience dating guys like that because although nice as friends, as dates she finds them immature, unimaginative, selfish and she doesn't feel they treat a woman properly.
So she socialises with them when she feels like relaxing, and she spends time with me when she feels horny or wants to be taken out or, basically, made to feel like a woman.
One thing I've noticed is the way she uses the word "fun". That would be a far more "fun" evening for her than anything else. I think it's important not to think too much about the age difference.
It's not a huge difference, certainly from a 38 year old guys's perspective any girl aged from 21 to 45 would be an absolutely OK age to date. I think the reason for this is that people slow down in their development after early twenties.
I mean, the difference between 21 and 22 is quite significant for many people it would mean moving from college to having a job, moving away from parents' house maybe getting your own place, being able to drink legally is no longer so exciting, etc. The difference between 37 and 38 is minimal. And as a year-old, in my head I still think almost exactly the same way I did when I was 25, I like the same things, I wear many of the same clothes quality lasts , my idea of a fun date would be pretty much the same.
Main differences with me are, from experience I know better how to treat a girl properly, and I'm more confident in most situations life throws at you. And I'm very definitely better in bed than I was in my 20s, not through magic tricks or kama sutra style techniques, it's just a question of knowing better what I want, being more dominant in bed and also at the same time more relaxed about it.
Obviously there are some issues due to the age difference, the main ones I would say are: I find it very hard to dance to club music as something seems to have changed the last couple of years, the beat seems to change randomly mid-track now or there are off-beats or skips which really throws me: The friends thing is probably the single biggest issue.
Basically it means we are happiest by ourselves, or with just one or two good friends who are understanding of our relationship. So now, if a group of friends wants to go out, we would usually tend each to do our own thing that evening.
