I recently started dating an older guy, he's 40 and I'm 21. We get along great and I really like him and he feels the same way, he's desperate to tell his friends and family about me but I've been keeping it quite because I'm not sure how my family will react. Does age really matter?

I'm not gonna lie and say that it's not a big gap and that you won't face a lot of differences in experience matters because it's not true. However, I'm not saying that it's not gonna work either because it can work. It all depends on both of you. The reaction of your family is unpredictable, but you're a grown girl and they should accept your decision.2

Age does matter for some, not in regards usually of the younger person but people will most likely question why he has a great interest in you and why he can't find someone around the same age as him because 21 and 40 are a huge difference in the life course and where you're both at. HOWEVER if you're happy and can make it work by all means! People will always have their two cents0
