Is a 27 year old woman and a 21 year old man to big of age gap?

When we met we immediatly had chemistry. We both are just starting to establish ourselves in our careers ( i graduated college about 2 years ago and he went straight into the workforce). We have a lot of similar interests and similar values. Am I setting myself up for heartbreak by pursuing a man who is 6 years young than I am. I know the 1/2 your age +7 rule of thumb but that only really tells me that I dont look like a cougar...

  • I don't think you look like a cougar, lol. As a 27 year old male I can tell you I'm very different now to when I was 21. Everyone changes through different stages of life and that change can lead to people growing apart. That's not a reason not to go for it, but it's something you really need to bear in mind going forward.

  • I date older women all of the time. As long as both of you want the same things and have the same maturity, it is fine. We live in different times. If a man ever vilifies you for dating younger men say that an "OK cupid study revealed that an excessive amount of older men want younger women"

  • No if there's chemistry and you guys enjoy your time together then go for it. The only thing that can get in the way of this is your own doubts.

  • Not at all, as long as you're both consenting adults , key word being "adults" it doesn't matter what your age gap is.

  • no not at all, 6 years is nothing and the gap will seem to get smaller the older that you get..
