So here's the thing! I like older men! It's not that I don't like guys my age just all the guys I've been attracted to is like 20+ years older then me. Like then guy I like now. I'm 21 and he's 45. Is that too weird? I mean i know society will probably looked down on it. But, does it really matter about age?
I think once you get past the point where it is legal, then age gaps don't matter much. It has to do with the interaction between the two people, and if that works, then it doesn't matter. Yeah, there are going to be people who judge it, but that is with every couple, not just those with big age gaps
I think 20+ years is a bit much but that's just my opinion. If you like older men, you like older men. It's your personal preference. My boyfriend is 7 years older than I am. Although the age gap didn't necessarily cause any issues in our relationship, there are some cons about it too. For example, we have very different opinions about music, humour and whatnot. He likes all the oldschool stuff while I'm the opposite - it makes us relate to things in a lesser degree.
It depends. My sister married a guy 15 years older than her. It was a bit weird at first but they're really perfect for each other and nobody really pays attention to their age gap anymore. There are still the odd negative comments here and there but I don't think it's unusual
20 years is big gap at your age, and I say that as an older man. 10 years is a lot at your age, if you're really 18-24. If you were 30ish, it wouldn't be such a big difference, but at 18, you haven't had many experiences yet, and you should be sharing them with someone for whom they are not old hat.
it's really your choice. can't judge other people's life. But in my opinion, you should date someone closer to your age. Besides, that man is old enough to be your father. And your kids will have a very old dad.
Well your an adult like me and as long as your not with a minor there is no reason to look down on it. So it does not really matter that much, just ignore the stares really as those people are probably jealous!
What I don't find acceptable is 24 year olds dating 15-16 year olds and that sort of stuff.
If the relationship is consensual and legal, then I have no place to judge. It's none of my business; the heart wants what it wants.
I would personally never consider dating someone that old, though. Aside from not being attracted to guys who are that much older than me, what could I possibly have in common with them? Also, I don't want to be a widow at like 50-60.
Large age gaps become less weird after a certain age, like 30 or 40, when both partners actually have life experience and all that.
