My own personal interest would say no, I would not date someone 8 years older than myself. I don't see anything wrong with it though.

I think the general rule of thumb (for guys, at least) is "half your age minus seven" or something like that.

I think it really depends on the person.

I prefer older men. Any particular reason for that specific number?

I prefer older men as well, I am talking to someone right now who is 8 years older than me. It's all in how they act and treat you.

I was told half your age PLUS seven. I've been involved with my SO for over seven years, and he still has not reached half + 7 for me, and won't for another 3 years.

I prefer your version of the rule...makes me less of a cougar

I don't see why not, my ex was 9 years older than me.

My hubbie is 8 years older than me, and the age difference has never been any issue for us.

I wouldn't rule it out, though it might take some getting used to (I've always been the older partner).

I wouldn't rule it out either, but it's not something I would prefer. Dating up to 5 years older is what I'm looking for. No one younger though, haha. I just have this thing against dating younger people...even like a day younger makes their attractiveness go down a lot for me. I don't know why.

When I was 18 I dated a guy 13yrs older than me. We broke up because we both agreed it wasnt going anywhere. But I also know people who are happily married and have been for years despite the large age differences between them. To me age is merely a number, a relationship works based on the people involved not on how close or how far apart in age they are

Eight years is nothing when you get over certain age.

I would be with someone eight years older or even older than that.

I've dated someone 10 years older and I don't see anything wrong with it. Age becomes less important or vast the older you get.

lol! yes, my bf was 8 years older than me and he was fully in love with me, but I don't like the fact that he would be aging quicker than I would be and I might lose him faster. I also lost love for him because of his immaturity and jealousness, So I let him go. I do prefer older men, but not that old where it rounds up to 10 years because it makes a huge difference to me, but Im not against it.

Yeah, it really depends on their emotional maturity - my ex-husband was ten years older than me, but he acted like a child most of the time. I understand your feelings on that aspect completely.

My partner is 7 years older than me. I don't see a problem with it, obviously.

Sure, why not? As long as they were into me for the right reasons.

im 22 and my girlfriend is about to be 19, i dont think i would be comfortable with more of an age difference than that, its just feels weird. Thought?

Age makes no difference to me. I've dated older and younger.
