    MrsPierce2014:  FI is 5 years older than me, I just turned 26 and he’s going to turn 31 in a couple days. I don’t really notice the difference in age because we are still interested in the same types of things and we still had similar upbringings. We both like older music and vintage stuff and neither of us grew up with a lot of technology, for instance. He is more mature and stable than younger guys that I’ve dated though, which is nice, but not necessarily correllated with his age. I dated a guy 9 years older than me who was much less mature and less emotionally stable. Interestingly, I’m probably the more “unplugged” one of us. I hardly text and he’s always texting his friends.

    1. I’m 24 and my FI is 34, so 10 years difference.

    2. My FI is older than me, but much more of a techie. He likes to work on electronics in his leisure time. He’s built some of the computers we use in our house. He’s ordered broken HD projectors for cheap online, and fixed them to work like new. He has a Facebook, but doesn’t check it often, he’s not really into social networking. Other than that, there’s not a huge difference between us. I’ve never been attracted to guys my own age or younger. The last time I dated someone my age was in high school.

    We’ve been together for almost 2.5 years, and will be getting married in 4 months.

    3 years. I’m 22 and my FI is 25. We rarely notice the age difference, we’ll be 23 and 26 when we marry which I think is perfect.

    7 years. I’m 27 and he’s 34 (we were 23 & 30 when we met; just recently married). It really isn’t noticeable – occasionally it comes up when we talk about things from our childhood (cartoons, movies, music), but that’s about it.

    8 years. FI is 35 and I’m 27. Like PP have mentioned, my FI is less technological and always asks me or his teenage daughter on computer/electronic stuff lol. Also, Idk if its his age or just the part of Chicago he grew up in, but he is very street smart which I can appreciate. I don’t really notice much else with our age difference, he is really goofy and makes constant sex jokes so its like he’s 25. Lol

    There is a missing category. My FI is a little over a year older than me. We don’t notice any difference because we’re so close in age. I like this because we have all the same childhood memories associated with the time frame (music, toys, TV shows), we’re at the same stage in our lives, there isn’t a generational gap…etc.

    I am 5 years older than FI, who is 30.  Not typical at all, but we rarely notice the age difference.  He is very responsible and mature and I still feel like I did when I was his age, so it all evens out for us.
