I was 20 years old and he was 28, I met him two months before his 29th birthday. Our gap is exactly 8 years, 7 months and 1 day. We’re not more than 10 years a part, but our gap isn’t a big deal. I’m a mom, so I needed to find a man who was ready for parenthood, and twenty somethings aren’t looking for that and I didn’t want to waste my time if it wasn’t going to last 🙂 But our maturity levels sync, I guess it’s true that women mature faster than men. And most people don’t even notice the gap.

When we met online I was 17, he was 18. Met in person when I was 19, and he was 20.

I was 32, he was 27. So there’s about a 5 1/2 year age gap, but you wouldn’t notice it. We seem to be on the same page maturity wise, so for us, it works.

I was 22, and he was 25… there are a few (3) months where he is actually 4 “years” older than me, but we’re really just a 3 year age gap. He’ll be 31 when we get married, and I’ll be 27.

We met when I had just turned 26 and he was about to turn 29. We have a little less than a 3 year age difference.

I was 21 when we met and going on 22 when we started dating. Fiance is 20 years older than me. Honestly, I never would have guessed his age because he looked (and still looks) amazing, but he was very forthcoming about it and I like older men, so it was never an issue. He got me with his charm, intelligence, and ambition 🙂

I was 32 and he was 34 when we were introduced to each other. We’re actually only 1 year and 5 months apart cause his birthday is at the end of the year and mine is earlier in the year.

I was a few months shy of 18 and he was 19- we’re exactly a year and a half apart. Now it’s five years later and we’re 22 and 24.

I was 16 and he was 17, so just over a year gap.

We were both 18 when we met in college, so our age gap is less than a year.

We met when I was 16, with a 6 year gap. Eep. It never really mattered to us, but we got teased by friends and looking back it doesn’t sound so good. It’s 7 years since we met now though and the age gap sounds fine!

Sugar Plum.x: I was 12 and he was 13 (one year age gap) – we met at summer camp! Although he was my first kiss at 13, we started dating for real at 17 (me) and 18 (him). We were engaged 2 1/2 years later, married 2 years after that, and are celebrating our one year wedding anniversary at the end of May!!!
