Re: age difference???

I think it depends on the people. Do you have the same interests? The same life goals? A lot of times a 20 year old and a 37 year old are at different points in there life. The 20 year is looking to have fun and party when the 37 year old is ready to settle down and start a life and family. At 20, you can't get into a bar, at 37 you might want to be able to go out and have a drink for time to time.

I am 22 and my boyfriend is 36. We are very happy. It just really depends on the situation. In general I don't think age matters, however can the two of you deal with it? I really would have to say I would need to know more about the two of you to really answer the question.

I don't think it is, but older men our way more advanced then the men our age. It's a whole new world. We're 22 and match ever.

I was in the exact same situation. I was 22 and my boyfriend was 40. You don't need to prove anything to anyone, your of age. If it's right for you, it's ok. Please don't think you have to explain to people why it's ok for you 2 to be together, it only matters what the both of you think. Love does not see a number, only a heart.

Re: age difference???

It is if the guy is 20 and the woman is 37. I have a 19 year old son, and wouldn't want a woman old enough to be his mother, teaching my baby.

Re: age difference???

thanks everyone. it's not that i'm bothered by it, i guess i'm just afraid of what other people will think, but i shouldn't care what other people think. we have so much in common and get along so well and there is definatly a connection between us from the day we met. i have a feeling that something more than just innocent flirting will happen between us at some point. i was afraid of how to react if something does happen, but i'm not going to worry about it anymore. i'm just going to let it be.
i, personally, think i am mature for my age so i always seem to be attracted to older guys. and older guys seem to be more attracted to me than guys my own age too. but thats not a bad thing right?
