Should You Ever Date A Much Younger Man? Delta Goodrem Is 8 Years Older Than Nick Jonas!

Does dating down in age ever work out?

From ex-girlfriends Selena Gomez to his Les Miserables co-star Samantha Banks to Ms. Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas has always dated in his age range. His tastes seem to have matured now that he’s at the ripe old age of 18 — the youngest Jo Bro is dating 8-years-older singer Delta Goodrem over the weekend! Can a relationship between them work?

Nick was spotted leaving the ArcLight cinema in LA May 15 with the 26-year-old Australian songbird, who, up until recently, was engaged to Westlife singer Brian McFadden. If Nick’s following day tweet was any indication, things are going well between the two, regardless of their staggering age difference. “I feel so blessed,” he wrote. “Had a great weekend.”

OK, so the two are having fun now, but can this May-December romance actually last?

I’m sorry, but no, these two won’t last. Sure, they have more of a shot than most couples with an 8-year-age difference do, but that’s by a slim margin. It’s in Nick’s favor that he’s been part of a successful band, the Jonas Brothers, and has so much life experience by 18. He, at least, can identify with Delta.

However, if you’re an average 26-year-old woman dating an average 18-year-old guy, how much are you really going to have in common? He’ll just be graduating high school, while you’ve been in the working world for potentially 8+ years (4+ if you went to college). It’s hard to talk about life with your partner when he hasn’t doesn’t much living yet.

If you don’t mind being his teacher, and showing him things about the world, then be my guest — date a younger guy. But if the thought bores you — as it should — then find someone your own age or even a bit older instead. Find someone who can show you a thing or two.

It’s not a good idea to date a younger man, so you should date an even older man? Well if that’s not a double standard….

Again, this is Nick Jonas. He has been in the work force more than any regular 26yr old or even a 30year old. He is quite mature for his age and I seriously doubt she would be teaching him much about the music business. He is the one working on her album not the other way around. Seriously it’s Nick Jonas, I doubt she would ever be bored with him. That said, he seems to be a very private person, so if they are dating, we may not see much of them.

I think there is no problem when your man is younger. LOVE and feelings are things you can’t explain. You can only feel them and live them.

You’re an idiot for even asking this stupid azz question… Why the double standard? It’s a great thing when an older man dates a woman (i.e… Brad & Angie or most famously Hugh & all them HORs young enough to be his great grandkids) but if it’s the other way around, a question like this has to be asked? Or is it because it’s one of the Jonas brothers? You say “older woman” like the woman is 50 or some shyt… She’s 26 and he’s 18. Isn’t Selena Gomez technically commiting some sort of underage rape of JB? Cuz I mean she’s legal and he’s still underage. Such BS.
