1. Let Them Live In Peace
While dating someone younger you’ll get to hear rather absurd things. Most people don’t realize that things that they say ‘casually’ are really hurtful at times. Don’t let it get to you. If you love someone and they love you back with the same intensity and respect then that’s what truly matters. So don’t let people cage you down with their opinions.
2. Your Bond Is Important
There are going to be a lot of incidences when the age difference factor will stare straight at your face. Maybe when you’ll see old pictures, or maybe when you click pictures and you realize that the age difference is pretty visible in them. But how does that make any difference? There are more important things to focus on. For example, how you forget that you’re allowed to act like a kid in front of them even when you’re a high functioning adult. Or maybe one of you’ll become an adult while resolving fights. Dating someone younger has its own perks.
3. It’s Tough
Yes. The reality does remain that dating someone younger than you is tough. But hey! Dating anyone in general is tough too. It’s just that the challenges are different. You’ll have to give yourself a reality-check every once in a while to be sure that you’re not being kiddish enough to not make improper decisions and running away from your responsibilities.
4. The Balance
Dating someone younger can help you balance things better. You’ll be allowed to a kid on certain days just like how you’ll be allowed to be an adult who takes charge on other days.
5. Maturity Factor
This is the most important aspect of a relationship. You can date someone of your age but if they aren’t able to understand the value and responsibility of the relationship, it’s going to fall apart. Once again, age is just a number.
