I'm a guy, and I wouldn't mind going out with someone older than me. I mean, people mature at a faster rate than others.

I liked a junior guy when I was a senior in high school. Whatever, I didn't think it was a big deal. The one-year difference only mattered because I knew I was going off to college the next year and he wasn't. Sophomores were more like my little brothers, but there were some pretty hot junior guys.

Anyway, don't let that one year get to you. You're closer in age and maturity level than the girls who go out with guys seven years older than them. If you like him, you like him.

i dated a guy who was a year younger than me when i was in highschool.

we still met each other when i was away for school and he was in highschool.

whocares how other people see it. if you guys really like each other

the age difference wouldn't be important...

hey chill, it's alright. i'm currently dating a guy who's a year younger than me and it's really no big deal. he's a lot more mature and caring than most of the senior guys at my school (i'm a senior). the case might be different though, because my boyfriend skipped a grade. but still, nevertheless, his friends tease him all the time about how it feels like to be dating an older female. it's ok, as long as you guys like each other. nothing really gets in our way, except when we talk about like how he might get caught driving me around illegally... when i won't get caught doing that because i'd be legal by next year. just minor problems. those never ever come up, though. like age difference only happened like twice. we've been dating for almost a year now.

I just find it funny. I know of this one chick who dates a guy a year younger than her, and he's not the lovi dovi type, and she is. After they went out, he totally turned into a lovi dovi type of girl, it's cute and funny sometimes.

But I personally wouldn't date a guy younger than me, even if it's just .5 -1 year. I think it's just stereotypical I guess, that it's ok for guys to date younger girls, but not around. I just don't like the idea of depending on a guy younger than me.. I don't know.. it feels .. weird.

=) I'm currently dating someone whose 11 months younger. And honestly, I find no problem with it. I guess people point it out because they might worry about a "maturity" level that comes with a person's age. But honestly, if you two click, then don't worry about it.

Dating isn't such a big deal I think. The age difference isn't that big either. I think you should consider when you're nearing the edge of being a pedophile lol.

i think it's cute.

i'd rather see a girl who's a year older with a guy a year younger

than a tiny girl in seventh grade going out with a huge senior.

Personally, I would'nt date a guy younger than me. But if you like him, and he likes you, then you don't have to care what other people think or say. As long as your happy with it, its all good. B)

He's only 1 year younger than you, it's not a big deal at all. As long as he shows his mature side it should be ok. Younger guys can me more mature than older guys. It just really depends who the person is. All age groups have their mature and immature people.

I wouldn't mind dating a guy that's a year or two younger

as long as he's mature enough for a relationship.

Go for it~

I think views on this usually change as you get older. Age becomes a lot less of an issue. If you really like the guy, then go for it.
