Dating someone two years younger
2 years stops making a difference when you're both in early adulthood (20~) for most people.
In your twenties, especially in the years immediately after college, an age difference of just a year or two can make you feel like you're a world apart from someone.In our culture, dating an older partner is often seen as a status symbol for younger women — we're often told that older partners will be more financially and emotionally stable, which is why being courted by an older partner is often seen as a compliment, a confirmation that you, indeed, have your act together and are desirable.This is probably why heterosexual women's age preferences in partners tend to skew their own ages of higher (while heterosexual men's tend to skew younger).If I'm 16 and 2 school years above someone is it weird to date them?I'm not in love I just think I might be able to make something of it but will the age (and I suppose development) gap pose a problem Eh, I probably wouldn't. Depends on the relative maturity levels, and the willingness of the parents to let their kid date someone older. In Iowa the age of consent is 16 so you can date anyone you want in the state, no matter what age.As long as your parents and the other person's parents are fine with it, and you're prepared to face quite a bit of teasing/comments/etc. I don't know the legal ramifications regarding this...
it really depends what country or even state/province you live in.
When we met online, I wasn't looking for anything serious but he was actually looking to settle down.
He had just finished law school and was working crazy hours.
On the other hand, I was working two part-time jobs, while auditioning as an actress.
Despite me being older, I liked to joke around and party, while he liked to Netflix and chill.
We were both successful in our careers, we constantly talked about current events, and had similar political and social views.
