After all, you didn’t exactly grow up at the same time.
Once you get to high school, a whole new world of possibilities opens up for you.
Suddenly you aren’t limited to dating the boys you’ve known since kindergarten—the same ones who put gum in your hair or threw spitballs at you from across the room.
Nope, you can leave those immature losers behind for a sophisticated older guy. High school guys love the first day of school because a new crop of freshmen are roaming the halls.
Age has never been that big of a deal to me (I have a lot of close friends who are a few years younger than me as well), but apparently it’s a really big deal to everyone else. There will be a moment where you realize something like he was in middle school when you were in high school. You find out just how many people think that making fun of your age difference is hilarious.
Here are 10 things you’ll only understand if you’re dating a younger guy: You realize that most people think that age equals maturity. Just because I’m a girl I can’t date someone younger than me?

People I barely know are always asking me, “But aren’t you worried about you guys not being on the same page? You’ll get used to those moments of realizing your childhoods were just a little different.
