    ...but honestly, I've never really seen an age

    difference. I am 26 and he is 39. We met at work 8 years ago and hit it off immediately. Best friends and we've been together for 3 years...I've never been happier. Some of my family doesn't approve, but whether it's because of the age difference or the interracial aspect...

    I am currently in a relationship with a man 18

    years older than I am. We met in church and neither one us expected this to happen! He was previously married for 10 years and has 2 children. I couldn't have asked for a better man to call mine! We really are a perfect match and I have also fallen in love with his children...

    I just got engaged to my boyfriend of five

    years. He's 16 years older than me. It bothered me considerably at first, but now I realize how great we are together. He is my rock, my soul mate, and my best friend. I cant wait to marry him next year. Age is just a number, and love knows no bounds.

    I am a 27 year old female,

    pretty mature mentally for my age and I have began talking with a 42 year old. He has been married and has a kid. However, that doesn't concern me. I am not one to care what people think, but, from y'all's experience and knowledge, is it doable? I honestly feel it is, but am...

    I've been in a relationship with a 26 year age

    gap for almost 4 years now. I have known him for about 10 years. Everyday I fall more and more in love with this man. People ask me all the time if his age ever "Bothers me" because I'm only 21. His age is the last thing I think about. He is my best friend, my teacher, my rock...

    I Am In An Age Gap Relationship

    I started seeing a man I'd known innocently since the age of thirteen around my 16th birthday. It was just casual, and after a couple of months I realised I wasn't ready emotionally for the stress of a relationship with such a big age gap. Over half a year went by and I thought I...

    that it is amazing to have a social media network to open up and be free about my relationship without judgement! I am 19 and my boyfriend is 50. We met when I was 17 and instantly clicked... We started off joking around and after a few months, our relationship took off and we...

    I'm 18, he's 29. He'll be 30 in January and I'll be 19 in April. When we're together, his age doesn't show. It doesn't bother me at all. We get along so well and really get each other. We support each other's goals and desires. And this is the best relationship I've ever been...

    My partner & I have quite an age gap.

    We often feel so alone, so removed from others because of the judgemental attitudes of people who should be congratulating us. We have a fairly substantial gap, 33 yrs, but we are so right. Yea, I've just turned 50, she is 17. In NZ there is thankfully no christian right wing...

    I am happy to say that I am in a loving age-gap

    relationship. When two people can connect on a deeper level, surface level artifacts such as age and gender become nearly meaningless. I am so grateful for the love we share. You are unforgettable, and always safe in my heart.

    I met this guy more than a year ago.

    He is a photographer. I was a cosplayer at that event. When we met, he asked to take my picture and I said 'yes'. Little did I know that I'm meeting the man of my life. At first, I have my doubts. Like 'What was I doing?', 'Is this the right thing?', 'Will I regret this?'. But...

    What are the actual concrete arguments against

    age gap relationships? I'm honestly super curious about what causes people to hate them so much. Are there rational arguments that can be backed up or is it mostly societal norms?

    It seems I am on the larger end of the age gap

    relationship. I am 38 and he is 72. Yes you read that right. That is a HUGE age gap I know. Does it matter to me? Not in the slightest. I was 35 when we met. We became friends quickly as we both have the same quick witted, sarcastic sense of humor. Then I learned he is educated...

    Nine Years Difference....

    I used to think that it was not a big deal, that my girlfriend/wife was nine years younger than me. Nearly everyone insisted it was not a big age gap. Not everyone, after all, could be like my parents and marry someone the exact same age, right?! Then, after we got married it...
