When dating younger there is more choice and more quality in that choice, also these guys have less baggage—exes, past wife (wives), children,” said Toni Coleman, a psychologist and a dating coach.“The problems associated with this are if the age gap is too great, the man is so young that he just can’t meet her emotional and intellectual needs, and/or he is just in it for fun and she wants more.

This can be especially so if the man is in his 30’s or early 40’s and the woman is in her mid to late 40’s or older. However if he is late 20’s to early 30’s and she is mid to late 30’s, it can be a non-issue.

It often comes down to the amount of years between them and whether her age would impact his having a family life with his own kids in the future,” Coleman said.

She either needs a father figure as a boyfriend, or he is immature and needs to impress a younger girlfriend with money or something. When you figure that men die sooner than women, she could be setting herself up for 20 years at the end of her life alone. Yes, I too would be concerned but seems you should ask her more about him and get to understand the attraction.

He may have a stable life and be a serious kinda guy which may be a welcome relief from frat boys and typical college morons she's dated in the past or something.

He lives on his own but he's very mature and even grew up watching the same movies and music I did.

We have a lot in common and he's more mature than some older guys I've dated but I am holding back because of what everyone says that it is wrong because of age.

“It’s also a problem if the guy is in his 20’s, has a lot of growing up to do, and she knows what she wants and is ready to take the next steps.

Often, he just won’t be there and will probably be in for a number of changes before he is — including what he wants and who he wants it with,” Coleman said.

“With individuals maturing differently and at various times, I believe that a numerical age shouldn't have much weight when finding a lasting relationship.
