I am curious to see how common it is for older woman to be with a younger man? There is a five year age difference between me and my FI and I know that sometimes that can present certain differences in views on matters. For more context, I am 26 and he is 21. What’s your views on relationships where the woman is older than the man?

My DH is a year and 3 months younger than me, but he looks about 2 years or so older. I don’t really care much for age after you are 18, love is love.
There are TIMES though when you know something else BESIDES love is going on.. lol.

He’s only 10 months younger than I am in real life (but we’ll both be 31 the day we get married), however, we always joke that he’s a 14 year old stuck in a 30 year old’s body. The man likes his toys.

Mine isn’t a huge gap, but I’m older. I’m 23, he’s 21.

I’m 4 months older than FI, but that doesn’t really count. My mom is 2 years older than my dad and FI’s parents are the same! I think that as long as your in the same stage in life, it doesn’t really make a difference. If you’re not, I think it can present issues/problems, but it doesn’t have to.

I am about a year older than DBF. I know it doesn’t sound like much when I say I’m 19 and he’s 18, but since we met in high school (where I was two grades ahead of him), I guess it’s always felt a little bigger to me. It doesn’t matter at all when we’re together, though.

nadnuk: Haha, I think the same can be said about all men!

annb9: I agree with this. Wanting the same things in life is very important. I also believe that no matter what age difference, two people need to grow together in the relationship.

Mrs.Sawyertobe: Sorry! We’re ex-aequo! I am 38 years old, and in a few weeks (eeeek), I am marrying a 29 year old. We have 8 years and 10 months difference 🙂 I used to date a guy 11 years younger, but that didn’t work out (fortunately!). I also dated a guy 14 years older when I was in my early 20s lol
My 29 year old fiance is freaking out because he is turning 30 in less than a year… to which I reply that I am turning 40 in less than two years, so… 😛

I’m only 2 months older than FI so it doesn’t really count at all. But he laughs that I’ll be 28 and he will be 27 when we get married.
He calls me grandma and makes jokes about me needing a hip replacement soon.
I call him ‘youngin’ and make jokes about how I could get reported to CFS for leaving him unattended.
