Good afternoon ladies. 🙂
I’ve noticed among my friends that the ladies tend to be older. I’m older than the giant. And in 5 out of 6 couples in my social circle, the lady is older than her beau.
Is this a new trend? Are all our grandmothers surprised and our mothers encouraging?
What’s your take?

I am older by 3 years, and my family doesn’t care one way or the other. They just know that we are good together.

I’m four years older than J. Not a big deal, but it can complicate things (like when to get engaged) at the age bracket we are in.

He’s older by 3.5 years or so- even his younger brother is older than me by a few months. He gets ribbed occasionally by our friends about being a cradle robber. Of my few friends that are in a relationship, most are dating older guys.

J is older. He’s 27 (28 in September) and I’m 22 (23 in May). I enjoy it much better than dating those close to my age. It’s amazing to be with someone who is actually mature. Fits me perfectly.

He’s 2 weeks and 1 day older than me. I love that we’re the same age. We’ve experienced everything at the same time so it makes things a lot easier.

Just thought to add a poll. Sorry, I’m still a newb.
And I can’t figure out how to find out if the man is older than the woman in the relationship without excluding lesbian couples. The sociological part of my brain is twitching at the way the poll is set up right now but it’s as good as I can think of… heh.

My husband is 9.5 years older and yes we have gotten every possible comment about it.
