Dating a woman four years older
To be clear, not knowing who The Fugees are or simply missing someone's references doesn't make you a bad person.
It makes you ignorant of great music, and definitely not a match.
Any girl who has dated a younger guy knows that other people tend to make this situation more awkward than it should be. ” Oh, I don’t know, I was trolling the local middle school and put a spell on him. ” Because I want to, and because I’m not judgmental. You realize that there’s a big double standard – most people won’t blink an eye about an older guy dating a slightly younger girl, but if it’s the other way around, watch out.
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?

So, I'm proposing this "8-year rule" in dating as an absolute.
One is, “Well, it a good movie.” Two is, “God, people already forgot about The Fugees, huh? ” If your answer is either two or three, then we're on the same page.
These women aren't uninterested or uninteresting; they simply haven't had to learn how to communicate with real people in real situations based on the world they grew up in. But just because you can also try Farmers if you're not technically a farmer, doesn't mean it's a good idea.
But what is a first date other than a test of communication between two strangers who are tossing around the idea of potentially engaging in sexual and emotional trust with the other? For these reasons, I beg of you to stay within the 8-year rule.
This is something that, for whatever reason, almost always illicits weird reactions from people.
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.
