My FI is two years younger. First time I have EVER dated anyone younger and go figure it worked out LOL
My future husband and Love of my life is 25 and I am 38 He is a very mature 25 and treats me Amazing Age does not make a man.
I am by 3 years!! He is wonderful! I think age is just a number. Truely, somedays I feel 1200 years old and others 12 years old. Life is too short to NOT have fun. Do what makes YOU happy! Kisses and Kudos to all of us!
He's 4 years younger than I am but I don't consider that to be much of a difference. I was engaged previously to someone 15 years younger and well...there really were some differences that were due to age. The basic compatability stuff was there but he really hadn't experienced many of life's trials and tribulations that add to a person's wisdom.
@lisa105: I am...my man is 35 and I just turned 55...this is my second marraige . The first lasted 35 years . Love knows no age..and the heart wants what the heart wants .
I'm 46, he's 38. According to actuarial tables, that's perfect -- we'll die around the same time. Ha.
I'm a total cougar too...
I'm 43 and he's 33.. :) 10 years... and I love it!!! He's in the Navy, he acts older and I act younger.. so I always say we meet right in the middle at age 38... :)
Haha! Only a year and a half here, but I like the younger ones, what can I say!
I used to always date older, my last "SERIOUS" relationship was with someone 5 years older than me, and we dated for FIVE YEARS, that's a big deal considering I had just turned 15. After our relationship ended and I was 20, I went on to better and YOUNGER things. An 18 year old, the best SEX I have ever had in my entire life! (sorry, if that's "too vulgar") -- after our great 5 month run/relationship and all of the fun we had, I started scouting out the younger ones:)
FH is GREAT. I'm 23 and he's 21, not a HUGE deal -- but it works for us:)
I'm older by 3 mo, but the best relationship I've ever seen was one where the woman was in her 40s and the man was 20 years younger than her. It's more than 20 years later, and they're still going strong.
Cougars Unite! I just got engaged to my 32 year old fiance and I am 48! 16 years difference. :)
ages don't matter I think, XD
me too i turned 40 on the 1st july this year and meeting H2B was the best moment of my life it just took me two years to realise that lol we are getting married next september 2012 and i can't wait. wont give the gap just yet as its up for a guess on another post lol
Technically I am! I am 24 and he is 23!
Me! His Dopplegagner is Mario Lopez! Yay me! =)
7yr difference I am older
I am 40 he is 33
He is a little less than 2 years younger.
I am too! I'll be 47 in October and he just turned 41 - love him!
@LauraBenbow71: 17 1/2 years between us ! yep i will be 41 and he 23 :0) but no one ever believs he is that young.
@LauraBenbow71 oopps double post sorry
I am!!! I am 40, he's 33, and he doesn't look 33 either, but people tell me I don't look my age either (or they are lying to me! lol)
I am! He's 39 and I'm 46. There are 6.5 years between us to the day. I don't think most people realize that there is an age gap between us. He lost his hair early and no one ever guesses my age close to what it actually is.
We've been together for 13+ years, but this last year it's been like falling in love all over again and things are better than ever. I never expected for that to happen.
I am 48 and he is 31! Together for 4.5 yrs and date set for 12-12-12.
Me! I'm exactly 13 mos older
My FI is 37 and I'm weeks away from 53. He pursued me like no other - and I so sarcastic at first. It seemed silly that we could have anything in common - I was divorcing after a 25 yr marriage, & have 2 kids. He's never been married. He's become an amazing dad-like figure for my teenage daughter, and truly the greatest, most loving partner I can imagine. Never thought this would happen for me! Here we are in Mexico Dec 2010:
@lorie: "He pursued me like no other." OMG, finally someone else feeling like this! I am 54 and he just turned 44, and for the longest time I tried to keep things at a friendship level but as you noted, he literally pursured me. He recently presented me with a ten-page love letter, I mean like WOW! I am at work so I have no pics of the two of us together on my work computer but here is a pic of FI I had posted previously.
BTW, I LOVE this thread. I feel so much better now! LOL
@KT808: I struggled with the age difference for a long time and sometimes I still worry about marrying him and being so much older. I told him, "You'll get older, but I'll just get OLD". He isn't the least bit concerned. He has MS, and while it hasn't debilitated him much at all since his diagnosis over 10 years ago, he worries about me having to care for him if things change as he gets older. So we truly are in it for better or worse, and in sickness or in health. This is a good topic because I think we face many detractors as the "older" woman whereas older men with younger women is just accepted. Considering how we age differently, I think it makes much more sense for older women to be with younger men. Congrats on going with it & not fighting it anymore!

My man is 28 and I am 43. I was so worried about our age differenece that I almost said no when he asked me but all I had to do was look in his eyes and I knew it was right. This thread/blog has made me feel tons better about our situation. His family is great they accepted me without any reservation. My family had a harder time accepting him cause he was so young and looks even younger. He is more of a man than many of the older men I dated. I am so happy.
I will be turning 40 in May and him 30 in June. So he is 10 years youngers than me. It bothered me in the beginning but we mesh and are so happy together the years dont bother me anymore. Plus his family and i get along so well and that makes me happy. They have accepted me and my kids with open arms.
I love this thread! I just turned 40, and he's 33. Staying out of the sun for years has paid off, and I have fewer wrinkles. :)
I just posted a similar thread and wish I would have seen this one first! I'll be 41 and he'll be 26 when we get married in September. I'm divorced and have a 17 year old daughter, and when we first got together we didn't officially call it "dating" we called it "enjoying each other's company." Until we decided we never wanted to stop enjoying each other's company! 15.5 years difference and I've never been happier. We started dating when I was 37, he was 22 and my daughter was 14.
My fiancée is 9 years younger than me. I am 32 he is 23. We have been together since he was 18.
39-me and 35 him ; ) and im loving it!
Our birthdays are coming up next week. He will be 30 and I will be 42. We have been together for 5 years.
I am. Well I did rather. He's 2 yrs younger.
He's 44 and I am 47.
my sweetie is 6 years younger than me.
@lisa105: im 4 years older then my FH ; )
I am currenly 52 and my fiance is 33, I was previously married to a man the same age as me and we managed 26 years together with 2 sons who are now 20 & 24. My 20 year old who still lives with is Dad is happy with our relationship and future plans to marry in 2014. My 24 year old son lives in another country and is still (after 3 and a half years) having difficulty accepting what has happened, but agreed that as he lives away it doesn't affect him so much. I haven't yet told him about the wedding and I'm worried that he will stop speaking to me when I tell him :( But I know I must tell him before anyone else does!!
