Kind of tough to say for sure as I've been with the same man since I was 15 -- almost 7 years now!

BUT what I think I'd do if my circumstances were different?
I don't know! Lol. I definitely could not ever date someone 10+ years younger. Uh... wouldn't that make me a pedophile anyway? LOL. 10 years younger than me would be 12! LOL. But I haven't ever really found someone of my same age or under that I would've been able to be... on the same level of commonalities to date. My partner is 3 years older than me, which works, but if I hadn't ever gotten with him and was a single, looking to date girl, I'd be looking to date older, not younger.
I could probably handle it if my lovie had different political views than me. Not if he was totally opposite of my views though because that'd mean real trouble (having the opposite views on topics such as women's rights, etc. would be a real issue). We do have many different opinions, which is great with me, but the important things, things that really matter to me & him in life really should line up similarly.
