Age difference issues?

Me and my boyfriend have been dating for over a year now. We Started dating when i was 18 and and i'll be 20 in a few weeks. My boyfriend just turned 30. I'm Having a really Hard time dealing With Family and Friends Judging our relationship. I've even had strangers tell me How "inappropriate" our relationship is. My Parents Have No issue with us Dating. they actually like him a lot. Some of my family members have even accused him of being a pedophile or that he's taking advantage of me since he's my first boyfriend. He's really upset about how my family is treating him and i am too. how do i deal with this?

  • A rule of life that is true in most cases, and in this one too: People who matter wouldn't mind. People who mind, shouldn't matter.

    Don't pay attention to the haters, people are often just looking about for something to complain and be righteously indignant about.

    You can feel sorry for them because they are so fully brainwashed by the "It's so wrong, everyone knows that!" that they aren't able or willing to think for themselves.

  • Well you're an adult now and they need to respect your decisions. You need to lay down the law and say this is how it's going to be.

  • Not muc difference betwqeen 20 and 30. Early teen years dating a late 20s would be a problem, like 16 and 26. You grown a lot in those years.

  • The way I see it, you aren't going to be sleeping next to any of your disapproving relatives. Don't give a fuck what they think, I guarantee you they've done things that are substantially worse. Never let other people determine your relationship.

  • If you are 20 and he is 30, then that isn't a problem. You are both over 18.
