13 dating 20 year old
My friend gets exasperated with his girlfriend because she gets excited over random stuff that means so little to him now.
She is also a big drinker - since she's just getting into that stage in life - whilst he has been there and done that and would rather settle for a few quiet beers in his house these days.
We have a healthy relationship because we can both learn from each other and he can give good advice and support for things he's already been through.
However it's not always easy, a lot of my "friends" isolated me and excluded my boyfriend.
You have been there and experienced those things, you've learned that there are bigger fish to fry, but they will be experiencing it for the first time and it will have greater significance to them.
The important thing is that you can share in that positively with them and not patronise them or lessen the experience.
At 23, you learn how to take care of yourself and how to truly be independent.
You're probably done with college and working a good full time job.
Presently you are both minors and in the same legal category, but in another 2 years, if you are still dating, then it will be a 15 year old dating an 18 year old, which is a minor dating an adult, and that doesn't look good.
