Dating a young, hot girl is every man’s dream. Guys like Hugh Hefner and Donald Trump make it a business to keep fresh young hotties on their arms. Heff has one for every day of the week. Trump could do the same. Yes, dating a younger woman can be quite enjoyable. After the allure of having said hot chick begins to fade, then what’s left? If she’s not packing more than just good looks, eventually you’ll look elsewhere. She has to be mentally as well as socially mature enough to match where you are. If not, she may be to young to date. Here are five signs a girl is too young to date.

She can’t do what you can do. Yes an eighteen year old girl is technically legal to date. If you’re in your mid 30s, why would you want to? Because she seems mature? Come on, be realistic. Most of the adult nocturnal destinations are still three years out of her reach. Sure, you can take her to dinner and a movie. You can visit museums and the such. Not much else. You can’t take her to a bar. You can’t go to most nightclubs. Oh and unless she’s a dancer, she won’t be allowed in a strip club. There’s a very real possibility that this young chick of yours is still living at home with her parents. This means that she’ll still have some sort of curfew. Hmmm, how about you tuck the young girl in and go find yourself an older woman.

You’ve done it all. If every story she shares with you, you have a similar one that took place ten years prior, she’s too young for you. All of the things that used to excite you are old news. You’ve been there and done that so many times it’s not even an issue anymore. On the other side, she’s just starting to get her feet wet. For all of you guys going through severe mid life crisis’ a young chick may be for you. For those of you that can’t find joy in the life your young girlfriend is leading in the here and now, you need to admit that she’s too young for you.

Pop culture references. If you were old enough to drink at the time a movie she’s never even heard of came out—especially if it’s one that defines your generation—she’s probably too young for you. Seriously, cradle robbing is only cool if you’re Mr. Hefner. Even he looks slightly ridiculous at times carting around with women that could be his grandchildren’s children. You’re trying to relive your glory years through a young woman that just reached hers. Stop being selfish and find yourself a nice game of Bingo somewhere.

Communication disconnect. People value different things at different stages of their lives. If you’re ready to settle down and have a family, and you’re dating a young lady that still wants to be free and party… no explanation needed. She’s too young for you. You can’t force her to ignore the raw urge in her to enjoy life. You can’t suppress her want to experiment, or any of those free spirited things. If you guys can’t see eye to eye on how you want the relationship to progress, then chances are she’s just too young for you.

Everything she does is silly to you. If you can find fault in everything she does, it’s not a good sign. You feel as if she handles situations in childish manners. She’s too young for you. The generation gap is too big. Here’s how it works. The generation that preceded yours looks at your generation like you guys are a bunch of babies. Your generation in turn, looks at the following generations like they’re a bunch of infants. Be honest. Do you look at how she dresses, talks, carries herself, handles situations in a way that mirrors a disapproving parent? If so, she’s too young.
