    How can you tell someone

    that it's hard for you too. They think you'll be alone when they're "gone". They worry who will take care of you. They want you to keep people in your life so someone will take care of you "after". They need the comfort of knowing you are looked after. But it's hard for me too...

    9 Years

    My hubby is nine years older than me. It isn't a very big gap, but it was enough to get plenty of negative reactions from his friends and family when they heard that he wanted to date me. My family were very accepting because my grandparents had a big age gap. It was also enough...

    8 Years

    I am 8 years older than my husband, that not a whole lot but sometimes it seems like a lifetime.  The funny thing is I have never been attracted to younger men but my husband and I just clicked.

    12 Years Gap

    I am 12 years younger than my husband, but I don't think it really has an effect on us in any dramatic way. If you were to look at us astologically, he is a Saggitarius and I am a Capricorn. Unlikely perhaps, but we do keep each other balanced well. He is so young at heart, and I...

    19 Years and Change

    I'm sure many think I'm odd being married to someone that much older but it has worked out for us. Not that it has always been easy, far from it at times. I think it has been easier for me than my wife though especially when someone mistakes me for her son instead of husband. Our...

    but my boyfriend is 16 years my senior. I am 21, he 37. Apart from the occasional "oh, is this your daughter" comments our age gap is practically invisible to us. I often feel our maturity levels meet somewhere in the middle and that's why we connect with ease. We never fight...

    OK...I'm not married.

    ..but AM in an age gap relationship. I'm 44 & my bf is 30. We have had some issues, but I have always liked younger guys. Sometimes I don't FEEL 44...yet other times...I can really feel the age difference, but not as much as I used to. Hope that makes some sense.LOL
