What is your opinion about age gaps?

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?

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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 don't buy it, someone who can be your father is more attractive? people don't get better with age, the opposite is true, so you are the one who compromising, not the older man.

  • 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.

    • well I'm 21. I know that 20 years is a big gap. But, I have always found myself to be attracted to older men for some reason... I'm not attracted to guys my own age.

  • Age gaps only matter if either person makes them matter. Having said that, when the gap is large enough they could be the other's parent it gets weird.

    • This is true... I could I guess in age be "my father" but, he's younger then my dad! I wouldn't want to date a guy who was my fathers age or older.

    • You're reaching up higher than I was reaching down. Liked a girl 13 years younger than me.

  • 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.

  • I don't think that age gaps are that big of a deal... my boyfriend and I are 12 years apart.

    But you have to put into consideration... when you're 41 he will be 65.

    I think you should think about how you feel about that, and then go on with that decision... its your life and no one is going to tell you how to live it.

  • I don't understand them to be honest. I wouldn't want my husband to end up dying a whole 10- 25 years before I do. The idea just makes me sad.
