There is a big difference between my boyfriend and I - 21 years - and there are definitely some kinks to work out. We're from different generations and that can put a rift in our connection. Dating guys in their 20s, no one ever raised an eyebrow when I said, "Hey, I'm going to get my *insert random body part* pierced!" The current boyfriend, 48 years old, acts like I said I want to join the French Foreign Legion. I already have a bunch of piercings, but that's the way he "found" me, so he accepts it - along with the blue hair - but he isn't as nonchalant about body mods as younger guys.
However, he also is completely comfortable with me not working and staying home with my son. He opens doors, carries out the garbage and doesn't expect help with "man's work" like home repair. All awesome.
He and I have different taste in music, movies, etc - it's the generational stuff, the pop culture stuff, where we don't see eye-to-eye, and if that's a huge deal for someone, then they might want to date within their age group.
I don't think I have a preference, though. It all comes down to chemistry and understanding. If you've got that, then fuck the rest of it. It just so happens I found that with a guy old enough to be my dad.
