bpenisson:  SO is 6 years older than me. No one ever really comments on the 6 years, but i did get a few – “Oh wow he is already 30 this year?” but maybe that is because he just lookds younger haha

15 year age gap here. I joke a bit about the age difference especially when he tells me how great a movie is and I say “was I born yet when that came out?”(then check the date and it turns out that I wasn’t). Or when he talks about hanging out with his friends when he was 18 and I chime in “I was 3!”. 

I haven’t had anything said to me that truly negative about us being together though. Just good humor 🙂

haha we have a HUGE age difference! I don’t consider 5 years an age difference at all…it makes me laugh when people call that an age difference. I think the “difference” starts at 10 years and up.

 

 

This is gonna sound crazy….but my boyfriend/fiance is 23 years older than me. He’s 44 and I’m 21, we’ve been together over 2 years. My parents are older than him fyi..he does have daughters but they’re younger than me. 

I know many people might find that gross, but it’s not like that. I really hate the terms “daddy issues” “gold-digger” etc. They simply do not apply in our case.

He doesn’t look close to 44. You know Brad Pitt and George Clooney and all those other middle-age hotties? That’s him.  I don’t have a thing for older guys, only for him.

He also has youthful personality. And he always tells me I don’t seem my age at all, nor do I feel it. People my age get a bad rep for wanting to party and be irresponsible, but I’m honestly ready to settle down. 

All in all, we get along great. I would’ve never imagined he’d be the guy for me. Never. But I love him very much and we’ve been through a lot together.

I know I shouldn’t get so defensive about this, but I always feel like I need to explain myself because I can imagine our relationship can be hard to understand. I am self-conscous sometimes, but you know, I’m always paranoid about what other people think about me no matter what. 

I don’t usually tell people how old he is because most of the people I talk to are my age (or his age, like my professors….). I do say he’s at least 10 years older than me. His age is not that important so I see no reason to bring it up and maybe cause some awkwardness.
