    Is it in the constitution of your country to not date younger guys because other people says so?

    Go out with him, have fun.

    hahah. yeah ok... but u dont understand these are my friends from school. i went to this prissy catholic all girls school, they are uptight bout stuff like that. I know , its sound stupid.. i'm an adult now and I should be able be myself, but i've known these girls since i was like 8, and wot they think matters to me. My best friend went out wit this guy who had.. well... a pretty crappy sense of style ... and they literally sat her down and told her to break up wit him. She did it in the end coz the social pressure within the group was too much... !

    If you didn't notice he was younger, does it really matter? Everyone has their own level of maturity, strange friends you have :)

    Age differences stop having as much of a meaning as you get older.

    2 years seems like a big difference when you're a teenager. Maybe even into the really early 20s.

    Once you're mid-twenties, 2 years would be a non-issue

    yes my friends are a bit odd. they are very prim and proper...there are lots of thing they dont approve of. Like drinking, smoking, premarital sex... and dating younger guyz, or guyz who dont fit the social standard. It has to with the school we went to.. it was very, snobby. i'm not like that coz its just to much effort to be like that, they dont hate me for it but they are forever trying to bring me back from the"dark side". Monique have u ever dated a younger guy?

    Heh, I remember dating an older girl when I was in college. She knew I was younger, but not exactly how much. I was working over the summer, and she thought I had graduated already. I knew she was older, but not how much. I was surprised to find out she was 26. She was quite a bit more surprised to find out I was 19. It didn't last long after that.

    2 years age difference, no problem. My wife is two years older than me. Heck here in Massachusetts you can marry anything you want.

    If she's with you that means she believes in you. Actions speak louder than words :)
