Alright so you have met a man who’s just out of high school, while you’ve already reached the peak of your career.It is often said that when you’re in love age doesn’t matter. But the mere fact is that age cannot just be merely over looked. You might feel great in the relationship, but do look at a few of these con’s before you go headlong into it.


You can of course argue the fact, that age is not a determining factor to test a person’s maturity. A guy might appear more mature because of his life’s experiences, but sooner or later his immaturity will reveal its true colors to you. It is better that you sooner accept the fact that you are dating a boy and not a man.

Kids and emotional baggage

If you’re already married or have already been in several relationships, its highly likely that you

Talk of the town

No matter how broad minded our generation has become, eyes still turn when an older woman is found in a relationship with a younger man. If you are not ready to be the subject of gossip in your church or charity group, do think again of what you are getting yourself into.

Social Life

Since your man is younger, he will also have friends of his age group. Do not be surprised if he chooses a night out at a club with his friends over a romantic dinner with you or even a family out with you and your kids.


Your young man might not have developed the maturity to enter into a committed relationship. He may accept you as part of his life or his girlfriend, but he might not be ready to tie the knot. Age brings the maturity to be ready to commit to a life of responsibilities and marriage.

Biological Clock

He is younger than you and may just have started enjoying his life, or even attending college. He doesn’t have a thought in his head to be a dad. But your biological clock is ticking. Studies have proven that women after 30 take longer to conceive. So if you keep waiting for your bopper prince charming to father a child, think again of the reasons of the relationship and why both are sticking together in the first place.


Both of you would be in different phases of your life. He might have just started out his career, while you might have already reached the peak in your career. When you are older, you can easily land up advising him, which can be misunderstood by him as mothering. So if the differences are causing a gap or affecting his ego, it’s time to sit down and have a heart to heart talk.

Generation Gap

There are limited things that you have in common with each other. You don’t even watch the same TV shows or listen to the same music. You might still be listening to Back Street Boys, whereas he prefers Justin Beiber. It might not seem like such a big deal initially, but in the long run these tiny differences can cause a lot of friction.

Weigh the pros and cons carefully and decide on what’s best for you in life. A relationship with a younger man is not as easy as it looks. A lot of hard work is required. So unless you feel that you have found the man of your dreams, a keeper, one you can hold on forever; try steering clear of the younger generations.
