Nope, not weird at all.

Nah. It depends on your ages. If you were 15 and 28, for example, that would be kind of weird (and illegal).

As long as it doesn't bother you, it's not weird. Everyone else can go hang themselves.

It's like your mom always told us and it has stuck with me since i was a teenager...
Love is blind, it doesn't see age, race, none of that.

It's not so simple. Trust me.

I once had a good friend, or someone I thought was a good friend, tell us that our entire circle was wondering if it was his wallet or his cock that I liked the most - they just could not even begin to fathom that we had things in common. We were so livid that we got up, left and refused to have anything to do with the lot of them again. Including the person who revealed this long held secret.

Parents, friends, co-workers (previous, not EF)...they all pass judgment. It comes down to having to make a decision. Either you're with the person and you let that stuff bounce off your back like nothing happened, or you fold and end the relationship.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with that kind of age difference. My dad and his wife are almost 20 years apart. My Man and I are some years apart. My best friend and her late husband were 10 years apart. All are (or were, before my friend's dh died) very happy.

I think it may depend on your friends and family and how you are able to stand up for yourself and/or do the things you know are right for you.

Relationships have challenges. Everyone if your circle of your friends and family are all going to like your partner at the same time. You have to decide what is important to you. I'm not the kind of person who would give up on someone I loved or could love because someone I know "didn't approve." I really don't care what people think about things like age. Usually those people are busybodies and would concern themselves with something else if it wasn't the age gap.

Do what YOU think is right. Are you happy with him? If so, I don't see the problem.

No that's not weird.I don't see any age different between adults weird it only become weird to me if it's a fifty year old with someone underage or something like that.

I don't think it's weird. We have a 14 year difference, and we're quite happy together. Feeling judged by others isn't necessarily fun, but at the same time it's going to happen because most humans tend to be judgmental. We roll our eyes, shake our heads, and move on.

I have a 19 year age difference with my hubby. We get a lot of rude comments. Everyone passes judgement. It doesn't bother us anymore. We just laugh it off now. It's hard to make things work with everyone being very judgmental.

People are always going to judge others, but I personally don't think it matters. As long as the two of you have a happy healthy relationship then who cares how old the two of you are.

No. In the asian culture it's sort of the norm, or at least totally common. About 10-15 years is the usual. More than that there may be some "hmmm.... interesting" thoughts going on, but thats more of the american influence.

Nope, not if you're happy together! Age doesn't matter, compatibility does.

Well, some people say that it is probably better to date an older man, because girls mature faster than guys do. Other people say that guys never mature anyway, so do whatever you want!

Can't go by me though...my SO is almost 16 years younger.

My husband and I are 13.5 years apart. It works for us. Every couple is individual.

No, not at all. As long as you are both of legal age and consenting I see age as just a number. Only YOU and you SO know what your relationship is like.

"Weird" probably is the wrong word. I've never had a relationship that was more than 8 year difference, and that one was really hard to go through with because of such a difference in age. I suppose that for ME it would be, but as for anyone else, as long as you love each other and are making it work, then I wouldn't say so.

They're only numbers. Maturity and compatibility are what matter the most.

No, at your ages it isn't weird at all. Now if you were under 20 it might be a bit odd.

my exhusband and I were 7 years apart. I truly think you should stick with it not mattering. If you're happy and crazy in love, who cares what everyone else thinks!

There's a 12 year difference between my boyfriend and I, but we're happy. I don't think it's weird.

Nope nothing weird about it at all. As long as you two are happy that's all that matters and anyone that has a problem with it, it's them with the problem. But this is coming from someone who tend to be attracted to men 15-20 years older than me.

I can totally relate. You just have to ignore judgmental comments.
