Im 18 and met a guy who is 27 last night. He was kinda nice, although I lost my interest when he got too handsy.
It got me wondering though, what kind of age gap would you still consider normal? Of course I know there are happy exceptions to any rule, but I mean in general.

You are at different points in your life. I wouldn't consider an age gap unless we are at the same point in our lives. Because if he wants to start a family and you are still studying, it isen't ideal or fair on both of you.3

I know hundreds and hundreds of married couples, mb even a thousand.
In the VAST majority of the best-functioning couples -- where "best-functioning" includes sexuality, logistics, emotional compatibility, finances, and just big life decisions in general -- the husband is 5 to 12 years older than the wife.
Like, at least 97 percent of the best-functioning couples.
A 9-year age difference seems big now, but it will seem smaller and smaller as time goes on.
Honestly, if you get together with someone that age, and the two of you are still together just 1-2 years from now, you'll probably have forgotten all about the age difference -- unless some conversation comes up in which it's specifically a relevant issue (e. g. timing of having children).
Otherwise, literally, you will just forget that the difference even exists.
(Until he asks whether you remember something that happened years before you were born, and then you can have a good laugh together.)0
