My boyfriend and I are a little over 5 years in age and while most people don't seem to be bothered by it, I do get the occasional "he's too old" "you're too young" "what do you even have in common". My age has never been a problem for us but I'm wondering if age really does matter in a relationship?

You're both fully grown adults here.
Me and my guy have a almost 9 year age difference.
Keep in mind we met when I was 20 and he was 28/29.
If you both have a lot incommon and he treats you right,
why let age be the determining factor?
Would your friends rather you be with a guy your age,
who treats you bad.
Or someone a little older that treats you right?
5 years isn't an age difference to sneeze about.
Yes, he's a little older.
But not so much so that you can't relate to one another.
Don't worry about what your friends say.
Enjoy the guy you are with.1
