The Older Guy

So I need some advice here.
The title says it all really.
What do you guys think of older boyfriends?
Not like crazy older, but a good amount.
Between 3-5 years.

The reason I ask is, obviously, because I'm interested in a guy that is older than me.
In his early, early twenties.
We have a lot of things in common, including our major.
And he reads this blog, so that's fun. He'll know I'm talking about him.
Which I don't really care. We both like eachother, flirt a lot in class.
Today in Spanish we had to do a "telenovela". Or however it's spelled.
The teacher gave us the base to work off of. The base was a girlfriend/boyfriend introducing his or her girlfriend/boyfriend to their family. And the family had to try to act as dramatic and crazy as possible.
Even though you know the guy, I'm going to refrain from using his name for the sake of some sort of... something.
Anyway, our class was separated into two groups of 7. The guy was in my group along with 4 other girls and 1 guy. Since we needed the boyfriend character, he volunteered because the other guy is too shy and aloof.
So then we needed the girlfriend character. "Who wants to be the novia (girlfriend)?"
And all of the girls point at me.
Thanks for throwing me under the bus there, girls.

In the end we did a simple script, he was my boyfriend, and all of that fun stuff.

Now that the day is over, I'm thinking back on it and realizing that I really have a fun time when I'm around him. He drove me over to pick up stix, and it was just a great time.
He's sweet, funny, sarcastic, and an english major.
So what is your opinion on the "older guy".
Keep in mind that every guy at school is an "older guy" to me, so that's not exactly fair. And I'm more mature and feel like I can better handle myself than say... Shelby.
I love Shelby, but she loves 15 and 16 year olds.

Now to move on to other things.
I told you guys I'd have some pics for you, and I do. So yay.This is my new dresser. See how it's yellow? Now, take note. I have my television, my xbox, my playstation, and my wii. It's like my dresser/entertainment system.This is my dresser after I got my poster up. I have one more poster that I'm ordering to go over my television. It will be level with the top of my poster, but smaller than that one.Betty Paige. I love older photos, or black and white photos, so this one seems perfect to me.
Plus it's just the right about of smut to give my room some edge.This is my new end-table. It cost 140 dollars. 140 dollars of pure awesome. I mean look at it. Isn't it so adorable? I'm trying to go with the sort of shabby-chic look. Which is why I have this dresser.
Now all I need is a book shelf and my room is complete.
I also put up my twilight posters this weekend.Like the pattern? It kind of reminds me of tetris.I went swimming at Shelby's house. It was really, really, really cold. But I still did it!

So that was my weekend. Nothing amazing.
And I still need that advice. So yeah, just help me out there. :)

Cute suit!

Older guy, in your situation, perfectly fine and normal. And if he makes you happy when you are around him then all the more reason!

Love the twilight posters in your room!

Bobby G said...

though you are incredibly mature for your age, there id a HUGE difference between 16 & 21, you are SUPER CUTE, but it isnt exactly legal dear....tryin to keep it real for ya...

My husband is about 5 years older than me, and things work pretty well. I definatley think a few years is okay. What's creepy is if the guy is old enough to be you dad, or worse, gandpa! But 5 years is nothing, especially if you already like each other. :)

Kristina P. said...

I think older guys are totally fine. Most women marry older men.

Tim said...

Ok. Lee here is my take.

I think you should ABSOLUTELY go for it! 3 or 4 years now seems allot more now than it will 10 years from now if you guys are meant to be.

Carey is 8 and a half years younger than me. I've never seen it as a problem.

Oh and as for the giveaways, are you saying I should stop them?

Love and Prayers,

Right now I think it's a big difference. But once you hit your late teens early 20's not so much. I know that sounds hypocritical but that's my opinion.

Grand Pooba said...

Ok, I was thinking early twenties? That's not too old. But then I remembered that you are sixteen. So I see your point. However, he still probably isn't at the level of machurity that you are so I say the older the better. Well within reason!

Erin said...

When I was 17, I had a 23 year old propose to me on the second date. Um, no thanks. So, I guess it depends on what both of you would be looking for in the relationship!

I think 16 and 21 is a big age difference right now. But I think it's clearly up to you and what you feel is right.

Love your new furniture!

That.Girl said...

You have to think, though, that if you're mature enough to be in college at 16, you should be mature enough to handle a college boyfriend, right? As long as he knows you're only 16. And for Bobby G, not to start any trouble or anything, but the age of consent is 16, so it is legal. I still say go for it!

My hubby is ten years older than me ... but we didn't start dating till I was 22.

Luv the suit :)

Lorena said...

I love the dresser! and in yellow!! sweet
About your old man situation...go for it. age is just a number...and at 20ish he's probably matching you in maturity.

Cant Hardly Wait said...

You shouldn't have to ask for advice in this situation. If he is good to you, if he suits you, then why not? It's not our morals and what have you, it's yours. If it's okay with you, then thats the end of it, right?

Love your bathing suit, too. =)

Sheri said...

I think 3-5 yrs is just fine of an age difference. Only crappy prob is that you're still underage. :( No way around that really though, and honestly I did the same at your age :P

Love the new pics of the room, and of course the Twilight posters! :)
