She says she wants a serious relationship. She's pretty for her age but she really does look 37. Perhaps I shouldn't expect my next relationship to be with a 20 year old Kpop star. Tell me your thoughts.

You can always give it a shot and feel it out. No says you have to get married tomorrow.

I say YES! I have several women friends who married younger Hunny's. I'm going to try to possibly get me a younger Hunny too! The guy's 10 yrs older than me look like they already have a foot and a half in the grave. :mrgreen:

8 years difference I don't think is too bad especially almost being 30 yourself

Emmanuel Macron, the 'centrist' candidate in the French election, is married to a woman 25 years older than him that use to be his former high school teacher so 8 really isn't too bad I think.

If both are 18 or older, then it's fine.

No problem with that. A 37 year old is going to be more serious anyways, plus older people are usually more sexually experienced as well. A 20 year old isn't going to be a long to term thing because at that age you're still figuring yourself out and your personality changes a lot between that age and 25.

She could actually look younger and Kpop like if she wanted. It just that's a really unflattering haircut and outfit. She also has uneven skin tone that if cleared up would make her look way younger. Also a little makeup would make her look way better too. Kpop stars don't get that look naturally, they wear a lot of makeup and take good care of their skin.

It's not so much a question of "should" as it is a question of "can". Either way, my answer is yes. Far as I'm concerned, age isn't an obstacle when it comes to a romantic relationship. Heck, I've heard of 50-year-olds dating 20-somethings!

I often wish an older woman would take me, lol.

To the OP: Age is just a number. Very pretty chick.

What are your social values, if any. I don't mean to start an argument but think this will work better for some people than others.

If I found out someone posted my pic on a public forum to be judged without my permission, I'd be mortified.

That may be due to age. Then again Asian skin is really oily so maybe it's caused by oily skin.

True, it would. She said she took the photo without makeup so it wouldn't be "false advertising". Personally I'm fine with girls wearing makeup. More than fine, I think girls should be encouraged to wear makeup.

I guess since I'd date a girl who's 8 years younger than me without hesitation it would be hypocritical for me to not date a girl who's 8 years older than me.

I've heard stories of people saying they met their partner when he was 32 and she was 20 and thought that might happen to me. I just didn't picture myself being the younger one.
