Age Differences: Dating Someone Older or Much Younger

By Katarina Kovacevic

age-difference-dating

Age seems to play an important role in relationships and a large gap in years can mean more differences than just the time you’ve spent on the planet compared to your partner. It also could mean differences in modes of communication, interests, and lifestyle. But that shouldn’t scare you away from what could potentially be a very loving and nurturing relationship. Instead of focusing on your differences, try highlighting your similarities. Make it a priority in your relationship to spend time on activities that you both enjoy. It will make the difference in age seem much less significant if you have a foundation based on common interests and understanding.

Fresh Perspective
The variation in age could actually be an advantage and strength in your relationship if you let it. Spending time with a person who is older or younger than you by a good amount of years can offer you newfound perspective on life and even broaden your own horizons. Having a younger partner can help reconnect you to a more vibrant lifestyle and actually leave you feeling younger yourself! On the same note, there is much to be learned from a person who has been around the dating block a time or two. More than likely your older partner is passed the “game” of dating which makes connecting with them easier than it can sometimes be with your peers.

Maintain Balance
Going out of your comfort zone and “giving in” a little is an important element to every relationship – no matter if you’re the same generation or 15 years apart. You shouldn’t do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, but if you’re dating a guy who is 10 years younger than you, try going out to the club with him once a month. Similarly, if you happen to be with a man who is older than you are then give up one or two Saturday nights on the town with your girlfriends to go on a nice dinner date with him. It’s important to keep a balance in the relationship in order to show that you respect your partner and where they’re coming from.

Age is Just a Number
One of the most important things to remember is that age really is just a number. Your friends and family may be a little uneasy about the situation at first but take the time to really introduce them to the person your partner is. Try not to get too defensive if people seem uncomfortable with your relationship at first – it’s a natural human reaction to second-guess things at times. But as long as you are comfortable and happy in your relationship with your partner then it shouldn’t matter whether they’re 25 or 65.

    hey thats like powerful information which i agree to a hundred percent.age should not come inbetween two people.i guess a couple can make it despite their age differance.its what they feel for each other that counts

    • angel says:

      i am sorry but age is not a number and when someone dates someone that is half there age that is sick!!!!!!

      • Chelsie says:

        my wife is 25 years older than me and we get along better than most couples do. not only do we have the age diffrence to battle with in this world but we are also lesbians.

        • sarah says:

          age and being a lesbian, I hear you, I am 17 yrs older than my wife..But I love her so much we are very happy and we share a very full life and sometimes avoid certain social situations because of people’s attitudes towards our age..but I am very happy..she is very happy…and that is what counts at the end of the day.

    • matthew says:

      that is about as narrow-minded and stereotypical as you can get…pushing your thoughts on others shows ignorance.

  2. mary says:

    thank you for shareing…i really needed to hear that..my friends and family are doing that to me..i am 32 years older then my husband..not only is it the age..hes from nigeria and that makes it harder on me..hes knows what is going on and he still says he don’t care..he treats me very well..he and i agree on things before we do it..we share our thoughts as well as our love for each other..you are right it makes me younger at heart and mind..and it helps him learn the real meaning of real life and face things easier..again thank you for your words..it helps us both..

  3. horizon111 says:

    WOW! 32 years older? How lucky are you? I am 50, my girl is 63, not a big difference, but I know it sure makes my girl feel younger. Her intimacy because of it is absolutly fantastic. Some of the best I ever had and she is ready at all times. My friends and family tell me she is damn good looking. And she is.

  4. Aretha says:

    I turned down a guy who is 10years younger (am 35) even tho i really like him. I’ve been regreting ever since. He has all the qualities I look for in a man, he ma even be my soul mate. wish i had the courage to date him despite of the age gap.

    • Ivonne says:

      Wow! I’m on the same boat! I’m 35 the guy that I believe has all the qualities I am looking for is only 24! Everyone is telling me to go for it, that age is just a number. But I still fee weird about it…but what if this is the one?!! good luck.

    • Emily says:

      Do it! I was in the same situation, I am 35 and met a man who is 27. At first I turned him down but couldn’t stop thinking abou him. Now we are dating and he serioulsy my soulmate. I have never been hapier and that surpassed the any doubt I ever had about the age difference.

  5. Tiffany says:

    I am currently dating an older man… Im 24 and he’s almost 47 and since I have been dating him things are going pretty good. At times I forget about the age when we just bond completely and we have a pretty good relationship. I really needed this article and more advice about dating someone so much older than myself. Thanks Lovingyou.com!!

  6. Abbas says:

    Thank you for educating everyone about the age gap syndrome .. there is really no age gap syndrome. I am madly crazily in love with a girl who is 24 yrs my junior and she was the one who initiated our relationship about 3 yrs ago saying over the telephone that she loved me and we have never looked back. She is so warm,loving,caring,and amazing in her mannerism. In short she is my world and I would giveup anything and everything to be with her. I call her my kl and she is my world. I am nothing without her and she is equally crazy about me.

  7. elizabeth says:

    do u think dating some one who is younger than u wouldn’t bring any problem in the future?

  8. meme says:

    Now 35 then 34 dating a 24yr. old male….Didn’t think about things twice and lets just say that I’m a mother again and loving every moment of it. He’s the best!!! Loves me unconditionally. And is a great father to my older child. We definately keep eachother grounded it takes some work but it’s all worth it. We have so many things in common despite the 10 year gap. You could only imagine what happens behind closed doors.
    Areatha go and get him girl! Don’t be afraid just let go. I was you and let me say I was alone for almost 11 years. Trying to always take care of friends and family. Respect what people think and say but do what you want. And later you will be the envy of the old and the new. Huh! Lol…

  9. meme says:

    Areatha invite him to McDonalds or go to an arcade take a camera and take some wacky pics. I didn’t initiate this relationship he did and I just followed his lead. And let me tell you his sisters are single and looking for the next 24 yr.old. they recognize the change in him and think it’s great. And they are 5-10yrs. older than meme.

  10. Ron says:

    My girlfriend is 47 and i am 59 not to much of a age difference.. She just had her first grandson and I am going to have my first grandson in a few weeks things could have not be any better. A lot of people are hung up on this age thing to me it is up to the two people who are in the relationship.. But i do think that a 25 or 30 yrs difference could and i say could be a problem down road in the relationship i have see it happen in a few.

  11. Tru says:

    I’m at the beginning stages of a relationship with a man that is 10 years older than me. We see eye to eye on basically everything…OMG….He’s a Viet Nam vet, and when I was about 10 years younger than I am now and divorced….all the Nam vets I met getting back in the dating field were just too confused let’s say about where and what they wanted to be in life. Which was very sad. Not only for them, but for me as well being given my age and who might possibly be interested in a gal like me…in other words…the guys that were from that era. Anyway…his sister, God bless her contacted me thru a dating site…truth…telling me of his interest. Now I cannot explain it, but he and I are very compatible. And there is not a thing I would want to change about him at all. He not only is a courageous brave man. But also very smart and caring…funny as hell too….giggle..:) I admire him a great deal.

  12. Rog says:

    What a wonderful boost. I am in love with a wonderful woman almost 30 years younger than me and we are soul mates. We have no fears for the future and we know we will take life as it comes. We have discussed the difference and we know how happy we will be for ever.

  13. Rog says:

    Forgot to say – thanks for the wonderful site, wonderful poems and now for a wonderful supportive article and comments from others.

  14. stan cleary says:

    I am 65 , my girlfriend is 31 yrs. I love the “Dynamic” mix of young heart and a wisdom of
    years its so interesting , bringing the 2 together ………

  15. Deucessunshine says:

    I am 38 my boyfriend is 23. We are expecting our first child together. (I have a 20 yr old and a 12 yr old) Although, there are some differences due to the 15 year age difference we are able to talk about anything and have a very good relationship.

  16. Shosho says:

    Wow! This article couldn’t have come sooner! I’ve only just admitted to myself a week ago that I’m in love with a man 22 years my junior. I have been beating myself up over this thinking that I must be going out of my mind. But everytime he looks at me and holds my hand all the age stuff goes out of the window. He’s being very patient about it all – the problem has been with me and not him. Thank you for this article, and thanks to all the comments. I’m about to start the rest of my love life.

  17. kieuthi says:

    That is so refreshing reading your shares, as I am slowly brave myself into a relationship with a man of my dream(fall in love with him instantly, but took two years to tell him through many different secret ways, who is 7 years my junior. My dilemma is not the age different, it is the fact that I am a single mother of two, and he is never married or have kid. Maybe that is a topic you want to talk about next. Thank you all for sharing.

  18. adedayo says:

    i am a young guy of 21 and i am in love with a lady of 34…..kudos to good understanding

  19. sweetie says:

    my partner is 11 years younger than me and we have such a laugh and have a few similar interests one bieng music. He is quite mature for his age too lol. we used to chat on the phone via work, the more we laughed with each other the more things just twigged. just goes to show you really cant help who you fall in love ith. Great article

  20. R. Adei says:

    Robie says: Thanks Mary for your comment … I am glad you said what was on your mind too about your young husband mine is 36 year younger and I love him and he also loves me and was very good and knew how to handle me who was fighting all the way to his arms and then he kissed me and I knew that he was for real.. Thanks to all the comment concerning this issue because I really though that I was the only human being in the world that was in love with a man this young.

  21. cindy lou says:

    omg!!! what a wonderful article.. i am 42 and my boo is 22!!!… I felt is was crazy because my adult children are older than him.. He says age aint nothing but a number often.. I just told a friend today that I love this man.. he makes me smile and he is there every time I need him unlike some of the ones that I had in the past that where my exact age… WOW

  22. Anna Moreno says:

    Thank you for this wonderful story which really inspire me to continue nurturing the love I just have with the man who is much younger than I am.

    I think this is the sign from above which I have been looking for…. a confirmation that age is not a barrier to a long lasting relationship, in fact it is more of an advantage than disadvantage.

    • terra says:

      I’m not so sure anymore if over time the age difference is not a factor. My husband of 17yrs was 9 yrs younger than me. Now at 45 he is going through some mid life crisis and has told me he is leaving me and that our age difference was a major reason! I cant believe this …we don’t look like we have an age difference and we both did all the same things listened to the same music …everything…but I honestly think he just wants a new young thing on his arm to go along with his great business success. I can’t believe he is doing this. This is just devastating to me after all these years.

  23. A. Miller says:

    Interesting article. I’m 60 and my girlfriend..ahmm..is 36. Though we basically have most times a long distance relationship when we’re together it’s always as one. I tend to be more relaxed and open to new things and definitely have noticed a little bounce in my step. We’ve both gained from each other in our outlooks on life. We’re both comfortable with the age difference and quite frankly we both know we’ve found our soul mate.

  24. gracee says:

    yes, i think what your right. the point is, follow where the heart is..as long as no one is hurt, and it can give a lot of joy being with the partner, perhaps its all that matters.,.

  25. Ree says:

    I’m A. Miller’s partner of 10+ years and while it was a bit unusal for my family to start with – 24 years difference can seem a huge gap, but as your article mentions we balance each other out. We have our differences for certain but we have a lot of areas where we blend and compliment each other. It took a lot of love and determination to make it through the descrimination but I think the 10 years later kind of says it all.

  26. Keysha says:

    yes,that is so true,age aint nothing but a number.I’m a 23 year old madly inlove with a 70 year old.He is so Loving and treats me like a Queen.I think i’ll marry him soon,he means the world to me………….!!!!!!

  27. Kerekumba says:

    The important thing is the heartfelt interest accomplished with understanding as the backbone of everything not really the age.

  28. Jo-Anne says:

    I have been dating and living with a guy ten years younger than me, I am 34 and his 24. He is the love of my life and soul mate, so Aretha you have missed out.

  29. TKD says:

    HMMMMMM, i like this article very much and i think is quite educating. but my onely concern is, though age is not a problem, there could be a problem when the man is younger and the woman is older, and at a age she can’t make babies. so i think it all depends on what one wants in a relationship. thanks so much for this article once more

  30. Cescnapon says:

    In every relationship, good understandg,sincerity,tolerance and trust goes a long way in establishing a mature and peaceful relationship. I am a young guy of 23 dating a girl of 25.yet i stil luv her

  31. kelwissert says:

    I am happily married to my husband who is 20 years older than me.We have been together for 12 years. It works out just fine! We have had some rough times but worked through them just fantastic and have God to thank for it all!

  32. Yvette says:

    Age is definitely nothing but a number. I’m married to a man 8 years younger and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I forget that I’m older than him and that isn’t an issue with us. I always joke with him saying that it’s better this way because women usually outlast men anyway so it was a perfect match. Great article.

  33. Rajiv says:

    I do agree with author and appreciate her way of writing age doesn’t matter if love is true & based on honesty. both the partners should know how to respect each others feelings & liking then there is no limit of age or anything

  34. adriyan says:

    i like this article. It made me feel even better about my relationship. me and my boo are happy depsite the 15yr gap. he 36 and Im 20. i like the fact that he is older then me. i feel like we could learn so much from him.

  35. J says:

    I think it depends on the person and their maturity level. My wife is 12 years older than me and less mature than me. I wouldn’t date anyone 12 years younger. It’s the notion that she’d be younger than my baby sister whose diaper I used to change and younger than all my younger siblings and most of her friends being younger. For me, it wouldn’t make me feel young, it would make me feel older. Being with an older woman makes me feel younger, but good for those whom it matters less to. I’m glad to see all of you happy!

  36. hannah says:

    i also want to thank lovingyou.com for this article. me and my boyfriend have an agegap of 16 years. from the moment i saw him i was in love! the people around me doesnt understand me, especially because he lives on the other half of the planet. but in 2 months we will be reunited again!

  37. Amy says:

    thank you for the info but he is a Mr. Know it all since he is 9 yrs older then me i am never right on anything to him. HELP

  38. Julian says:

    Age is just a number and should not affect a relationship.Even these days people does not think about age but what has been achieved.So age should not be a barrier in relationships.Cheers.

  39. Angesom says:

    dear Amy i have the same discomfort as that of yours She is 9 years older than me and is Mrs. know it all to me. For your surprise, i am with my batchler Degree but she on the other hand is only 10th grader?
    what we should do both?

  40. femi says:

    This article is really nice.i suggest it should be properly developed in to a detailed piece for our reconsumption.

  41. BB says:

    yeah, like i’ve een with this guy for about a yr, (he’s 21yrs my sinor), it’s like we were raised together. We think a lot like, speak alike, and most importantly, we feel great together. Age- just a number. Love-a wonderful feeling!!

  42. iamtk101 says:

    i was 26 and she was 19 maybe its different in a same sex relationship, but age played a huge role in ours. i felt like i was pulling double duty carrying her through most of the same stages and llife experience i had alreadyy beenthrough as well as my own

  43. meme says:

    So! What’s up Aretha? Haven’t heard from you???? So are you going for the younger boyyyyyyyyyffriend? Your going to miss your chance if you haven’t already. I’m waiting for your response to the world. What are you going to do? This is all in fun Aretha don’t miss it…I’m not really giving you a bad time. Just want to encourage you and be a support.

  44. Charlotte says:

    I’m only sixteen. I know, that does seem extremely young yet I’m in love with this guy who is twenty-one. For a long time, I’ve always been uncertain about the whole age difference and really was never fond on dating a guy over a couple years old than me. Yet, to be in love with someone, age really isn’t a barrier. I don’t mind him being a little older anyway, since he’s more mature and not like all the other immature guys around my age. He is very loving, caring and treats me with so much respect. I truly do love him and couldn’t be anymore happier. Even though a lot of my peers would look down at such an age difference, it no longer bothers me. This article has put a lot more ease to it all.

  45. Jessie Marie says:

    I am 21 years and my fiance is 45 years old. We are an army couple, we have engaged for one year, and been together for 3 years. I love him every much and he treats me like a Queen. My family accepts him for who he is and this is the happiest I have ever been. We are getting married next year!!!

  46. Len says:

    Amazing…now i know what to do..thanks a lot guys! you made me feel young again!

  47. Ginny says:

    This is so interesting…my ex-husband was 11 years older than me and I am 11 years older than my boyfriend and yet it seems to work better with the woman being older! I am a young 48 and my man tells me I am one to keep up with.

    My view is – if you have the communication, love and shared interests age is not a barrier. I must admit I was unsure to begin with but 8 months later it is SO good!!

  48. cassie says:

    Yeah age is just a number. I married a man who is 34 and im 18. At first no one knew what to think from both sides of our families but after time went on it got better as they got to know us, i think its just the initial shock but that goes away after a while, and yeah have a big age difference is a lot because no matter how much u have in common there still is the fact that one of you is older. Like with me and my husband there is a 16 year age difference and i had to mature faster than most girls my age, we dont go out much, im a stay at home wife and thats my day to day life i see the house and the grocery store and thats it!!! Its not all bad though, im with the man that i love and thats the important thing!!!

  49. dennice says:

    hey my boyfriend is alreadyy 18. and i am just 14 years old. for me age does not matter right?

  50. Lee says:

    I am in love with a woman who is 14 years my elder and she loves me back, but she will not have a relationship with me due to the age difference

  51. Samantha says:

    My boyfriend is 31 years old while I am 39 but we get along well with our relationship. We are on our 5th month now and I would say that we’ve been through a lot before we have reached this stage that we overcome all the struggles. Age doesn’t matter for as long as there is love and trust — the 2 are the most foundations in any relationship.

  52. Melissa says:

    I have a 17 year old boyfriend and Im 22 years old. He’s really mature and very outgoing.He makes plans and shares with me every momment he can. He’s a real sweet-heart and he’s always there for me! I love him; and he wants to get married, but im scared that with him being so.. young he wont be able to support a family, or even support me. So, it depends.. but i believe age does have something to do with people’s relationships.

  53. kenny says:

    I’m kenny, I,m a female & I am 33 years of age. Though I have never been out with someone younger than me, but I still think age counts to some extent in a relationship.

  54. Sam says:

    Im 19 and im dating a wonderful man by the age of 34. He’s amazing and sometimes i forget about the huge age difference. He knows im not ready to settle down but hes whilling to wait and i enjoy every moment of him.

  55. kristine says:

    hi…i do have a boyfriend who is 6 years older.we just celebrated our 63rd monthsary… at first,age doesn’t matter but as time passes, it really does…though we we’re together for quite a long…time… and we get along well together, there were really times that i’ve had difficulty in going up to his level of thinking…thank GOD for the advicers i’ve had…the article is true about having a fresh perspective…and being in a relationship means learning every detail of it day by day and a lot of adjusments…(“,)

  56. Ashley says:

    im 20 and my boyrfriend is 45. yes this is quite a age difference, but when we are together, we are always happy and complete each other. he makes me realize things and understand things better. On the other hand he always tells me that i keep him feeling young. He is the only person that i ever want to be with he completes me.

  57. Shana says:

    hi im shan….. im 32 years old… and my guy is 29….. we are so much in love…. and sometimes i forget im older than him…. but i trust age is not a barrier for true love…..

  58. Wayne says:

    Have met a lady 29 Years of age, Single, Not Involved…
    I am 62, Divorced for 28 years , Not involved for 8 years, Retired ( MILITARY) seem to have things in Common…Is this age difference TOO MUCH????I really like this lady…

    • Jim says:

      Hi, I falled in love with a girl is 12 years younger. The only problem is the age number that puts my head in a spin. I would like to know people in the same situation to stop thinking this way.

  59. Ella says:

    My boyfriend is 12 years older than i am, and for the most part i dont even remember that there is an age gap, we have a lot in common, and even though people talk about it, it doesnt bother me, love has no age

  60. Carlmen says:

    Hi there, currently I am dating my boyfriend who is 18years old older than me and we seems doing great.
    My parents and family don’t agree our relationship and they seem don’t support our marriage as well.
    Firstly my boyfriend has 2 kids.he is s divorcee.one of his kid is autism.my parents just wish I can search for someone older than me few years instead of huge gap and also he must be same race as me.
    In the same time they are so afraid I will change my mind but I have gone thru more than 5 relationships in my entire life.
    I know he just the right one I’m searching for throughout the years.I think he is a great man and responsible being a great dad for the 2.
    It never be a problem being with him as I know he will take care of me well.I am so pressure to go through this,I talked to my parents before but they strongly disagreed
    Therefore until now I sneakily being with him without anyone knowing only my closest friends and my youngest sister.
    I just wish I am able to find a way to make my parents to understand me and my boyfriend.so we can happily being together.
    I even try to learn to be a mother for the 2 of them.sometimes I failed as I never be one before.when during one of the kid seems don’t respect me and dislike me even I do my best for them
    I am so afraid to tell my boyfriend about it.it will make us fight for nothing.just because sometimes I feel bad as not being the real mother for them.they can be rebelious as I can’t say anything but I want to teach them in a nice way they seems don’t want to listen.
    I need help for all these obstacles as I really love my boyfriend I hope I can be his wife to give the best for him and his children

  61. skookum says:

    I’m a 26 year old single mother and I’m dating a 45 year old wonderful man. I do love him. There are issues with age differences. But we both are stubborn in our own ways which is fabulous… :)The one thing though I hate is that I happen to look a lot younger than 26 … so people stare or make rude comments sometimes…. Such as “Oh and is this your daughter….” But that I think is my deal… since People have thought I’m the older sister to my 5 year old son. Anyone else ran into this problem? It is a “sexiness” killer when out in public. He doesn’t even look that old…most people think he’s in his late 20′s early 30′s. Just curious if anyone ran into the “image” problem of age differences.

  62. Smith says:

    Hi Skookum, I’m Smith and yes I’ve had that problem. But image wise no, I’m 21 and my fiance’ 37, when ppl see him, they think he’s maybe 25, and me, they always think Im a lil gurl for some reason. Yes I find it weird sometimes.

  63. Sully says:

    I am 19 and my husband is 44. We are happily married. We do argue like any other couple, but he completes me.He makes me the happiest woman alive. He teaches me new things each day as well as he learns new things from ME too. We’ve been together for almost 2 years now and its been a wonderful ride. :) Age is nothing but a number.

  64. Ruth says:

    I AM 26YRS MY FIANCE IS 39YRS BUT I LOVE HIM SO MUCH

  65. Wilfred says:

    i think age is more than just a number when u find urself stalked up with a partner who’s so unwilling to grow up,even though the age they enjoy makes them look older

  66. Stacey says:

    I am 30 and my boyfriend is 47. Everyone says things to us but we are seriously in our own world and no one can understand what we have. We connect on every single level. I have never had someone like him. He completes me.

  67. Betsy says:

    My boyfriend is 9 yrs younger than me, I am 48 yrs old,we have been together for 1 yr now. We have had our ups and downs but for the most part our relationship is strong and getting stronger.He treats me like a queen,would do anything for me,as I for him.He is the best thing that has happened in my life for years,other than my 3 terrific boys,of course. I hope there are many years ahead of us,but if not,I love him and thank God for bringing him into my life for whatever amount of time we do have together…

  68. I am 10 years older to my boyfriend….he is 27 n i m 37….still he loves me a lot…cannot do without me even for a single minute. Age doesnot make any difference as long as we love eachother and there is trust in between.

    I’m 19 and in love with a man who is 48 years old. We always have so much fun together and I could not picture my life without him in it. We get lots of dirty looks and once in a while a rude comment, but we don’t let it get to us.

    I’m 20, and I’m seeing a 30 year old. He cooks for me, plays me songs on his guitar, rubs my back. It’s beyond awesome that I don’t have to deal with the whole “oh, let’s go out and get wasted on a Tuesday!” crap that I don’t have time for. He makes me feel really, really happy.

    I am 19years (female) and my lover is 29years old and we are very in love. There is a huge age different but it doesn’t bother us… At first i was a little scared but five minutes later after he told me his age it didn’t matter at all lol… it only took me five minute to get over it because i realize he truly cares for me and his in deep love with me and since the feeling is mutual “why should we split apart?” I Loveeeeeeeeeee my Egare and I want to spend every single second i have left in my soul with him…. “Bae you are truly the best thing that happen to me and I love You!!!”

  78. sandy says:

    im 49 the man i love is 28, we met online 2 years ago and have been talking almost daily since,he loves me but is afraid to be with me. I wish he could finally get past the age thing we are so suited to each other,the time we spend together in person is always awesome and we both love it, in the end we always part and say bye and go back to our separate states and lives. I know 22 years is a huge difference but when we are together i forget all about it. Neither of us can seem to let go of each other and move on so i guess to be continued.

    all my life I’ve been in love with one woman her name is Cheryl O’Keefe she’s 13 years older than me. she is thirty next month and I’m 17 in september. I’ve never cared about the age gap but what wurries me is the fact that she is my mates auntie and if he ever found out that I feel this way about he would realy fall out with me and I would lose one of my life long freinds. but she’s my love my darling and she always has been and always will be. one knight my mum had a party at the flat where we was living witch cheryl and her sister attended but when they where leaving cheryl ran to me and wrapt her arms around me as if she was realy going to miss me since then I know she feels something. I love you cheryl and I’m always thinking about you

  84. Brad says:

    I will tell her how I feel and we will be together one day I’m just waiting for that day if its a day a month a year I don’t care how long it takes because I will love her forever

  85. Kerry says:

    I met this one guy who is 40. I am 18. I know its a huge age difference, but everytime we talk or text, I just get this huge smile on my face! Age is nothing but a number…its the love, honesty and trust that counts!

  86. KLove says:

    I”m 17 years old. My wonderful boyfriend is 28… We have the kind of “movie love” that no one really believes in. We never notice the age difference when we’re together. He makes me so incredibly happy and I can’t see myself loving anyone else as much as I love him. Things aren’t always easy, but it will get better in time… When it’s not as frowned upon. I know he loves me and I can’t wait to spend my life with him.

  87. zach says:

    im 17 and dating an 14 year old my friends seem to think that makes me look bad and they say that im desprate but i know it will pass soon just give it a few weeks

  88. stacy says:

    Hello there. My name is Stacy. It doesn’t matter if you are in a relationship with someone older or younger than you. I am in a relationship with a guy I have know for 6 months before we even thought of dating each other. An now were going on over 2 years with each other..and it’s great. Seriously I can say I never been happier. Don’t let people get you down. An never let soceity tell you who you should or should not be with and that’s not right oh yeah your going to hell for that why do you have to sin can’t you listen that’s not normal. Well forget all people’s things they say about people like us or should I say couples like us. If you like someone it doesn’t matter the age. If you are truely willingly committed to that person you will find a way to get to them one way or another. So for the 62 year old guy who met a 29 year old woman who you really like and would like to get to know better. I SAY GO FOR IT do what makes you happy! You can’t let other people and there perceptions of who you should and should not be with get in the way. After all is it there lives or yours? Yours and you should be able to live it the way you want. So go for it!

  89. regina(: says:

    hi, i am 14 and i met this really cute guy who is like almost 20. I really like him a lot, and though we met a couple months ago we are great friends, like if we had known each other since ages & i think he likes me as well… But fuck, age matters a lot in this case… what should i do? i don’t want to date him in this moment, i know i should wait.. and i will. But what should I do NOW? Tell him the way I feel? Or just let things flow??

  90. regina(: says:

    oh, please mail me what you think, it’ll be helpful eliider.vr.hb@gmail.com

  91. Celeste says:

    Well i am 17, in a month i will turn 18. My lover is 39 yrs old, same age as my mum. Whatever it is that we feel for each other, really freaks us out…in a great way of course. We have a supernatural energy connection that we feel from 400 miles apart. Him and I are 2 of the most open minded people you could ever meet. We obviously say age does not matter. We so very happy with eachother. He has one child… i always told myself i would never date anyone with extra baggage… But here I am completely fallen. We have become zombies from getting no sleep because I keep him up at night. TALKING. We talk about everything. He knows i am a virgin, and he hasnt rushed me into sex or anything im not ready for, tho i am ready… just waiting for that 18 to kick in because my mother does not approve with our relantionship. He is the biggest music nerd i have ever met. I adore that about him. He is kind, sweet, gentle, and romantic…and not in the cheesey way that i dispise. I could go on and on about him.. But my point here is that age difference doesn’t matter if you both have a connection with eachother.. it becomes a problem when one is not at the same maturity to where it affects other things outside the relationship. Love whom ever you love. Love isnt a vicious thing. People are going to say what the want to say, regardless… So ignore it all and just be HAPPY.

  92. Bella says:

    Hi Everyone, I’m 28 years old and i’m attractive to a guy is 22 years old. I like him and i know he likes me, but alot. He makes me feel soo good and happy. I told him, lets just have a open relationship and see where things go. He doesnt want to do that, i kind of dont, and i kind do, but the reason for it cause his age bothers me and im worried about wat my frieds and family think. He mature, but right now he in school and got another three years left and he not finical stabled. It bothers me more how my friends and family think and his parents think too. I dont want to do….Im soo confused. I know i shouldnt let this bother me and i should be happy, but i never dated a guy this young. I really i dont know wat to do. Plz Help!!!!!

  93. badger101 says:

    I am 23 I have been in 2 relationships when I was 18 with a 40 year old and when i was 20 with a 34 year old. I never looked at age as a problem was with first 2 years and the second 2 and a half. I simply go for older men. I am now 23 and like a 51 year we are very good friends but im a little dubious on how to approach this one! Wish me luck!

  94. confusedxo says:

    Im 15 and i really like this guy whose 20.hes turning 21 soon, i really want to be with him.
    but, the age difference is ruining us.whenever im with him i feel something special, i really want to be with him, but i just dont know what to do. someone please email me with advice? j2lip11@myway.com

  95. Ella says:

    I don’t know why you would worry if your boyfriend is older- at least then he can overtake the “male role”, be reponsible and maybe support you or a potential family financially. I’m nearly 26 and met a guy who just turned 19. It may not sound much, but he just finished school, I am finishing my masters now and it doesn’t make sense at all. We have 2 months before he leaves for uni hundreds of miles away from me, and I’m so afraid of falling in love. It’s just that he could be Mr.Right for me, so mature and intelligent, goodlooking and a real sweetheart.. It’s so unfair that i finally foung “the one” and can’t really enjoy it :(

  96. ALBA says:

    iM IN LOVE WITH A MAN WHO IS 42 YEARS OLD. HE SAYS HE LOVES ME BUT HE IS TOO SCARED BECAUSE OF HIS AGE AND HE JUST TOOK THE DECESITION TO GIVE UP AND STOP TO FIGHT. I SAID AND THINK THAT AGE IS NOTHING JUST A NUMBER, WHAT REALLY MATTER IS THE FEELINGS AND REASON WHY YOU WANT TO BE WITH THAT PERSON, A RELATIONSHIP IS NOT AN EASY THING, NONE SAID IT HAS TO BE EASIER REQUIRED EFFORCE, SACRIFICE AND A LOT OF LOVE… I HOPE HARRY YOU CAN READ THAT AND REALIZE WHAT YOU ARE LOSING

  97. Pattie says:

    I am 65 and my boyfriend is 43. We have been seeing each other for 3 years and he stays with me most of the time. He is divorced and has a young daughter I have never met. We met online. We now work at the same company and he is very open about our relationship. He says age is just a number. When we are together, I feel 25. I think we each fill a need in the other. I have never been happier in my life. He is just perfect for me, and he tells me he loves me every day. He is so good to me. I don’t know how long this will last (I have been saying this to myself since we met ~ lol!) but I take each day as a gift and seeing that we have been together 3 years and it seems to be growing stronger all the time, I have hopes that it will last for some time to come. Forever works for me!!!

  98. Steph says:

    Me and my boyfriend are 17 years about im 22 and hes 39, hes everything that i have ever wanted, i have never been treated the way that he treats me by any other guy i have dated. The age gap is still an obstacle that we r going through, hes still uneasy about the gap but with that put aside he sees me for me & not the stereo-type of being 22 and stupid. but our relationship is very new and the way that its going i have never been in anything as perfect as now

  99. Xesvia says:

    Im 32 and my boyfriend is 23, weve been together for 3 months…but he thought im only 29 — havent told him the truth cuz at first i thought this relationship will not push through…but… i think were both inlove…

  100. Ann says:

    I am 29 years old and have been dating my boyfriend who is 18 years old for almost 2 months now. We have so much in common and we get along amazingly. I can’t imagine my life without him. I’m having a difficult time breaking the news to my family. He has told his family about me and i have met them. They adore me. I’m so afraid my family will judge him before they get to know him. It’s difficult.

  101. Taylor says:

    i am 19 years old with a wonderful fiance by the age of 33. since the moment i met him i knew i wanted to be with him. it hurt me thinking that it could never happen because of our age difference and the critisism we would get. acting on my better judgement i went for it and we have been together happily for almost 2 years now. we are planning on spending the rest of our lives together. he proposed, of course i said yes, and thankfully he will wait until i am ready to actually “seal the deal”. age doesnt mean a thing. nobody or nothing could change the way i feel about him and this wonderful thing we have together.

  102. keriishaa says:

    I’m 19 years old and my boyfriend is 26. Although it’s not a huge age gap, my family still has a problem with it. They want me to be with someone my age, that way “we can grow together.” Personally, I have no problem with it and neither does he. When we are together, it doesn’t feel like I am with a 26 y/o and to him it doesn’t feel like he’s with a 19 y/o. We understand each other, whenever we have a problem we talk and communicate; I feel like we were kind of meant to be together. He wants to be serious and I am willing to be serious with him, but my best friend is telling me not to and it won’t last. She claims I have my whole life to live, I’ll be growing up fast if I get too serious with him and I’ll be missing out and not enjoying life, because I’ll be tied down with him. To me that’s complete BS, because I can enjoy and live my life with him. He’s a fun person and not the typical 26 y/o; he’s young at heart. He also has 7 y/o daughter, which my family has a problem with. But it doesn’t bother me. There’s no baby mama drama and I haven’t taken on the role has “step-mother” yet. Sorry for the long post, but I don’t get the controversy between age and relationship. If two people genuinely trust, communicate and ultimately love each other…what does age have to do with anything? Why should we let age stop us from finding true, everlasting love? My advice to everyone is no matter what family, people or society says…age is just a number. Age doesn’t make a person, their personality does.

  103. Sammy says:

    I’m 21 and my bf is 35! He’s more worried about the age gap then I am. We’ve gottten strange looks before but I don’t care! I love him!

  104. Alex says:

    Yeah I went to the Philippines and Married a 26 yr old ,,,who never had a boyfriend or anything,,,and I am 41…She’s soooo happy just like I am…My gift from heaven….So lucky I am cause when I take a look around at the American women near my age,,,they make me feel better than winning the lotto,,,when I compare them to my sweet,,loving,,caring,,,loyal and bombshell wife,,,who makes everyhead turn as she goes anywhere!!!

  105. Charlotte says:

    I have found my sole mate, we have been together for a year and it’s always fresh and new we never tire of each other i love him to bits! i am 20 and he is 42. thankyou for making feel i’m not the only one!

  106. Joleah says:

    I am 19 yrs old, and have found the love of my life. He is 52. Our families are hesitant but accept that we make each other happy. I dont care what others think and will continue to love him and marry him.

  107. mactracker says:

    I believed in all the above & so did my guy. We have been together for over 5 years we have lived and traveled the world together. We are now settled in caribbean running a really cool surfing operation recently he has been calling me all kinds of names.I love surfing being out there I am my best when I am active and loving freely but he keeps putting me down. saying i am middle aged and an old hag. I know I am not he is 30 I am 46 but you cant tell the age difference. I dont know what to do here we are we moved to this small island finally have a kool beach shack and shop.and he is grumpy all the time.

  108. angela says:

    im 16 and the love of my life is 22… is that bad?

  109. Tiffany says:

    Im 29 and my girlfriend is 18, we have a GREAT relationship regardless of our age difference. It actually benefits us that i’ve been through some of the things that she is going through and I can help guide her. She treats me like a queen and makes me feel like im the only woman in the world. And eventhough I am older she still wears the pants in our relationship and is the king of our household. She takes care of everything, I barely have to lift a finger. I love her and she loves me and that’s all that matters!!!!

  110. TF says:

    Wow! After reading all of those i feel like my worries were stupid! You guys got through decades of age differences! I was freaking out because i think i’m falling for a guy who’s 2 years younger than me! I am 17 and he is 15 but this article made me feel so much better!

  111. Frederick Christian says:

    age difference is bs in a romantic relationship! It only seems to matter to others who I pressume are rude ignorant and jealous of someone in the relationship.What matters is are you content and that’s it! nuff

  112. Kaitlyn says:

    I am contemplating whether it is healthy or unhealthy to be with a man 13 years older than me. He is amazing and we have enumerable similarites. any advice?

  113. Yesenia says:

    This is very true in my situation I am dating a man that is 28 yes older than me but he does not act his age. He is 47 n I am 19. We have been together for a yr now and everything is great.

  114. Cearra says:

    Im 12 and my boyfriend is 16 we hav been together for about a year or so… and i think age is a number it jut matters of what you feel so i think it shouldnt matter about age or anything just go with it(: and i think that if your like 10 or even 20 yars apart it shouldnt matter… its just if you love them(:

  115. Kali says:

    age is absolutly nothing but a number. im 19 my fiance is 54 and i couldnt be happier. I am also expecting my first child his 3rd. I have tried to date guys younger or closer tomy age but nothing matches up to my man.

  116. lovergirl28 says:

    is it bad if a 16 year old female is in love with a 24 year old male?

  117. Taylor says:

    I’m in the same situation. All you guys’ situations are so inspiring and I have been seeing a guys thats almost 23 and im only 16. I told my parents and they weren’t happy although I can see where they’re coming from he is a way better influence on me than almost any other guy I’d date and he’s helped me turn my life around and get out of bad stuff.
    how can I show my parents the bright side of it rather then rebelling against them?

    • analee says:

      hi im in the same boat well in age im 17 and im with somone who is 26 . hes great . but age is a factir. but just remember its your life. dont get into anything that could take over your life and remember to stay true to yourself i care very much for him and it doesnt matter when im with him so it shouldnt for you. but parents opinion does matter just get them to understand

  118. anom says:

    im 23 and my boyfriend of 2 years is 52. we get on great and i guess it works cause i am mature for my age and he is young at heart – calls himself peter pan haha. always getting disapproving looks from people but just get on with it, oh and yea had the “is this your daughter” heaps of times just gotta laugh and smilesmugly when the flirting cow realises its your bf and no she cant have him! x

  119. Trudi says:

    I have just met a lovely guy 14 years younger than I am, I tried to avoid dating him, and advised him we cant get into a serious relationship. But my heart had been melted and I am falling in love with him. I beleive it was only fear holding me back and we all know you cant live your life like that. If I dismiss our relationship now I may miss the happiest time of my life. The age gap seems not to bother him in the slightest its only me with the issue. We enjoy the same things and i thank god i read this site, age really is just a number love is for everyone and sometimes the angels send you someone special, never let love pass you by no matter what the age differance.

  120. Jackie says:

    I am 25 and my wife is 50. I was dating her when I was 18 and she was 35. My family never expected anything good to come out of the relationship but they were wrong. Never in my life did she pressure me, nor did she ever treat me like a child she respected me as the young woman I am. After a few years together I gradauted college with an engagement ring on my finger. I got married a month or so after that. She is my soulmate my everything. We are planning my first baby when I turn 27. I can’t wait to share more of my life with her.

  121. PassionforLove says:

    I never thought this could happen until I meet my love 17 years younger than me. I never like dating older guys before though it’s common for men dating younger women. I never think I will date someone so much younger than me. But it’s love at first sight. We met and talked and both felt so great. Later it takes me sometime to get used to the idea age difference thought he said he doesn’t mind from the beginning. But he doesn’t act like his age, he is smart, lovable, handsome and he melt my heart. I think though he doesn’t mind our relationship and likes me, He does has some kind hesitation about his friends, workmate knowing about this. But this is a kind of love I never had before. I am 42 years old, though I look younger, but I felt it’s so hard to meet nice people around my age as most of them have been taken. I look too young to go with older people. Lots of my friends told me it’s crazy, it doesn’t last. But I felt I would like to take risk and give a go. As even with most suitable people, you wouldn’t have that kind good relationship. So take the fly.

    • Linda says:

      I have to say I am in the exact same situation as you. I have been dating a man 17 years younger than me, he is 29 and I am 46. I have always had the attention of younger men, however I thought it was taboo to date a man that much younger than me. He asked me several times to give it a whirl and I did and I don’t regret it. However my oldest son, who I had very young is only 2 years younger than him, and he is not taking it very well. I am not sure how to get my son to get over this age difference and see my boyfriend not by his age but by his ability to make me happy and feel confident and secure.

  122. sheri says:

    Hello! I am 28 and my boyfriend is 19 he approched me and I didn’t want to take his number because of his age. We have been dating for five months now have our ups and downs but I know that God sent him to me for a great reason. I love him so much.

  123. Queen B says:

    I am almost 45 he is 20, wow he scares me to death but I love him so much. He does not have kids says he does not care if he has them or not. He just wants to be with me. I am very happy we are together. Age really means nothing when you are happy! Who cares what the family and friends think!

  124. ahmed says:

    I tried to extend marriage to a girl ,she is beautiful and smart and I love her so much, but the problem is she refuses ; because of difference of age where I am a 26 and she 28. I think she fear of future problems. I told her I am ready to give up my study on masters degree and change all my plans for you. And she still hesitant. What should I do ?

  125. Brittney says:

    Thank god for this article. I am currently 20 and am in a relationship with a 41 year old man. we met through my aunt and weve been terrified to say anything but to a few of our close friends who dont know eachother. now that ive seen this it will make it much easier to tell my family that were happy together.

  126. bwylie says:

    I’m dating a girl that is 18 years younger than me. I really love her. I’ve been with women my age that aren’t half a mature as her. We have fun together. Other people make it a big deal. We don’t really think about it. It’s not that uncommon for two people with a considerable age gap to be together. It’s been happening through out time.

  127. Jana says:

    i am in love with a man 6 years older than me…he doesn’t know i love him, but we connect on every level, i think he loves me back…i’m pretty sure he does, but i know deep down he is my soulmate..age is a state of mind, i have tried to get over him, but ended up crying because he is so perfect for me, so i won’t let age deny me of my true love.

    • Katie says:

      thank you for this, because i have the same feelings for a guy that is 5 years older then me. its good to know that im not the only one out there who hass love age issues :)

  128. Oi says:

    Heavens, I find myself sitting at the computer looking for “advice” on loving…the most NATURAL human state….but I’m 45 and he’s 69. I am bowled over by the emotion that he moves in me. He doesn’t know this. I have been around a few blocks in my time, but NEVER been so touched as this. It’s excruciatingly beautiful.

    • Oi says:

      WELL…in the meantime he not only knows, but has admitted his feelings are the same…it’s above “normal” love!

  129. Daryl says:

    Hi,I have a man from Tunisia.All through my life I have done what society expected from me.And my relationships were not good.Anyway I met him online and I had by then established a new creed for myself,and my statement was”Love does not know race age colour or religion” And alog came Marwan.He wasnt a flirt ..he was and still is a talker ..hes real ..hes in a human rights movement,hes fun,intelligent,sensual and bright.hes also very kind.And he asked me to marry him.He does not want kids ..he just wants to be wherever I am.His age is 30,and Im almost 64.I have used every argument NOT to marry him because of age etc.But I cannot deny how we feel about each other any more.We talk on phone every day,and on the net whenever possible.The upshot of everything is that I dont care any more what others think ..Im going to do what makes me happy,and I will marry him :) This is a great site,and I have enjoyed it ..thankyou :)

  130. Todd says:

    I am a 48 year old guy with a 27 year fiance. We have been together for four years. They have been the happiest four years of my life. We are so into each other and the age difference is really never a factor as I view her as my equal. sure there are times when she is lacking experience in life, but she also knows that I am there to help her along when ever she needs me and vice versa. I was in a marriage prior that had no love what so ever. Just hearing someone tell me “I love you” with no prompting took some getting used to. It was foreign to me. All I can say is that she she fits the very definition of “soulmate” for me.

  131. Madison Trejos says:

    I Am 15 & This Guy I Like Is 17 & Just Graduated. We Both Like Eachother Alot. Now My Dad Wont Let Me See Him Or talk To Him Because Of The Age Diffrence. Even Though Thats Not Much. What Should I Do??

  132. anonymous says:

    My boyfriend is 28 years older than me but I have never met anyone more perfect for me. Age is just a number for some people. you have to decide if you love him enough to stick around when he’s 80 and your only 52.

But we both are stubborn in our own ways which is fabulous… :) The one thing though I hate is that I happen to look a lot younger than 26 … so people stare or make rude comments sometimes…. Such as “Oh and is this your daughter….” But that I think is my deal… since People have thought I’m the older sister to my 5 year old son. Anyone else ran into this problem? It is a “sexiness” killer when out in public. He doesn’t even look that old…most people think he’s in his late 20′s early 30′s. Just curious if anyone ran into the “image” problem of age differences.”"”

    –So yeah, I am currently 24, almost done with college (Agroecology B.S Degree). I have bee dating my man for 3 years now. He is 39. We are about 15 years apart. We live together, in a rental on his family Ranch. He comes from a well to-do family–me, not so much. His family I am sure was awkward at first when they met me, and on occasion I still feel the awkward pangs from them, especially his younger brothers who are 22 and 28. I too, have been blessed with exceptionally young looks, i was just asked a week ago if i was 16. I have gotten the ” Is this your daughter?” before, its is definatley embarrassing, as well as the OMG! No way!. There are plenty of people who do not approve, but our core friends, my mom and his mom and dad seem pretty accepting. You just have to focus on the things you have in common and realize that there will always be people who will not or cannot understand do you various social influences they had in their lives that shaped the individuals they are today. You must be in control of your own life, making your own decisions if you want to find happiness. Age is a number, love has no number. If he makes you happy that is all that matters. Having feelings of doubt regarding the age of your guy (or chica) is normal given our circumstances, besides doesn’t everyone question their relationships at some point after the honeymoon phase at least once–its part of the process–accept the process, accept who you have chosen and stop worrying!

    does anyone disagree with a 16 (female) and 23 (male) friends before relationship blossomed. i see age as a number, which shouldn’t define someone as a person.

    hi, great article… Im 49 and my bf of 8 months is 33… I was hesitent to date and open my heart to this young man, but you can’t fight love… We have so much fun when we are together, time stands still … It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks or says, whats important is the love and beautiful times 2 people in love share together despite their age difference… When we met it was his friend who was trying to get my attention, when he went to smoke my man took his place and i am very happy he did so…. We love each other, its beautiful!!!

  136. Random Person says:

    i really wish there was a segment about dating someone about 6 years older when your still under age. i understand its not a large gap having one person still under 18 also makes it complicated.

  137. Youknowwhoiam says:

    This was a great article. I’ve fallen for a younger man, and well, he’s into older men. Ignoring the age difference, he’s amazing, my type, and the most loving person I have ever met. So I am going for it. All the way…
    :)(:

  138. Lov3ly says:

    I’ve needed this article for a while. As far as I’m concerned, age is a number. I am 20, and my boyfriend is 34. We’ve been together for quite a while now, and I haven’t felt so completely connected or able to communicate so easily with any one else. We laugh because of what people probably assume that I am using him or he is taking advantage of me, because we know that none of that is true and they have probably never felt a bond as strong as what we have. Let go and take a leap anyone who is having problems getting over an age gap, that is and always will be the best advice I have ever given.

  139. Josiah says:

    I am 49 and I just started dating a girl who is 31. The sex is unbelievable and she listens almost exclusively to music from my generation and before. I love her sooo much. We talked about the future and we agree the age difference is a lot, but for now, we’re both ok with it.

  140. E says:

    I was wondering this and I think that it’s safe to date at the 10 years younger age bracket but no more than 10 years younger. After a 10 year age gap it becomes definitely awkward as in usually he or she will want something totally different like you might have already graduated college and on with your life and she’s in college and in the “party” scene where you already have been there and done that phase of your life. But then there are some men and women that are much more mature at their age say like a 34 yr old guy and a 24 yr old lady.

    So I would say for example a guy that is 34 he could go as low as 24 but probably no lower than a 10 yr age gap.

  141. itsgonnabeok says:

    Oh you guys, age doesn’t matter. As long as your souls connect, go for it! My boyfriend is 21 and I’m 34 and honestly I don’t feel the age at all. We get along well, and he makes me happy. Of course, there are those characters judging us based on the age difference alone. To hell with them. They don’t control my life, and they need to look in the mirror before they think to judge others anyway. You only live once people. Don’t let society dictate what should and shouldn’t make you happy.

  142. matt says:

    i agree i am 3 years older than this girl i like soooo much but she thinks the difference is wierd

  143. Shelby says:

    I really like this guy who is 2 years younger than me. I know that’s not a big difference but when I’m 16 and he’s 13 going on 14, it is a big difference. He looks like he’s 15, so you couldn’t tell by looks that he’s much younger than me, but it’s that people would be questioning us if I ever found out that he liked me and wanted to date me and I wanted to be with him. It’s so difficult!!!

  144. butterfly says:

    im in love with a guy who is 5 years younger than me and we have been going out since 5 years both of us love each other and understand each other so much we are really really happy..i swear we really don’t feel the age gap a little bit even..my only problem is that my mother is not willing to accept our relationship.please help me with this..im too scared to talk to her about this cuz i feel shes gonna scold me and then get worked up unnecessarily..my guys parents love me so so much..i really don’t know hoe to convince my mother about this …

  146. Hannah Donne says:

    Thank God very much for given you guys this idea to create a page like this.Am 20 and he is also 20 but my birth comes before his and that is only one month distance. i love him so much he” my soul mate.

  147. Nonoza says:

    I am in love with a guy who is 9 years younger my age. i love him and he also loves me dearly with my two children. Seeing at other people’s comments made me feel much better because even though i love him I felt a bit unconfortable with the age gap since he is my younger brother’s age.

  148. Lass K says:

    Me and my boyfriend have a 13 year age gap, and we are happy. Obv we have our ups and downs like every relationship. Been together fro over 2 years and were still happy. :)
    To us, the age gap is nothing.

  149. im still confuse if i will accept him or not its 18yrs. different and im scared

  150. Georgie says:

    does the same apply for in your teens years? My daughter is 17 and cares alot about a 22 yr old and im sketchy about allowing it.

  151. jesseloveforever23 says:

    My story? Im 18 years old and had fallen in love with a guy when i was 12 he was 16.. 12 is a young number to know what i love is but here i am at 18 and still loving him.. problem is that back then he ran from me because i was only 12 so he thought i was just crazy.. now that im 18 were still arguing about how age is just a number. I just got off the phone with him and need a little advice if im right or wrong that it kind of makes it seem like he only started loving me because im old enough and not for who i am and who i’ve always been. he hurt me alot back then all because i was young… -.- not fair.
