After a hurting break-up with my ex-girlfriend (that was 9-10 months ago), I dated again another young lady. Guess what, she's older than me again. Again? because my ex-girlfriend was older than me too. I was 18 years old then and she was 20 years old. And then this time, I am dating with a 26 years old lady. She's gorgeous and he attracts boys. I'm not kidding. Almost everyone in the office likes her angelic beauty. But the question is: Is it alright to have a girlfriend or to marry a girl older than me? In our society, the normal thing is that the boy is always the older one and not vice versa.
There isn't any problem but the reason society has it that the male is older than female in the relationship is because females mature faster and in order for there to be understanding between the two sex the male is usually older to match the same matureness or understanding. But there are always cases when the female is older and if everything works out, then there's nothing wrong with it. So yes, it is alright to have a girlfriend or marry a girl that is older than you, it just isn't a norm. As long as you two are happy and work well together, people should not have a problem with it, if they do, they need to learn to stop being conformists.
I personaly prefer girls older then myself, cause (personal opinion) I think that girls my age (around 20) are way to imature in a relationship. Older girls don't demand things in the same way, they got their own stuff and wont hang on to me like a backpack, also have alot easier to respect stuff like that I do have girl friends and that I do have other stuff to do aswell.. Ofc I put my girl first, before everything, but that is when it realy matters, a yougner girl have imo easier to demand that u stay at home or do as she wants, when an older girl don't, not in the same way, I gotta work out, meet some friends, get a break every once in a while.. and I'm not that kind of person that talks for an hour+ on the phone every night.. wich younger girls often wants..
Now I'm not saying that all younger girls are like THIS and older girls are like THAT, it's my personal experience, and nothing else.
