    I Fell In Love

    She was 17 I was 42. I don't know how it happened but we were very attracted to each other when we met. She had been touched by an older guy when she was way younger so maybe it was a reenactment she wanted with me. Anyway, it worked for 2 years until she left me for another...

    HMMMM

    When I was in younger, 21 years old, I dated a much older man.  He was 44 then so 23 years older.  As far as younger men. I am 38 and the youngest man I have ever dated is 24 years old now so 14 years younger.  I think age isn't really a concern in a relationship...

    I Was 17. He Was 31.

    I was 17, and he was 31 when we met at the grocery store where we were both working. I was a part-time cashier, and he was one of the buyers. We had a very sexual relationship right from the beginning, and it evolved into some ageplaying games between us that we still play...

    Seven Years Difference :/

    Normally I like a large age gap but mr 7 didn't work out and I moved on. Maybe an extra 7 would have made a difference as I still found him to be immature. ..

    18 Years

    The married man I'm seeing is 41 and I'm 23. The age different does not bother me. He says that I may him feel young. He does not even look his age.

    I'm 31 and he's 46 and the age gap is absolutely no problem or issue for us whatsoever. This is also the biggest age gap that I have ever experienced in a relationship too.

    35 years. He's older.

    We've been best friends for 12 years, and living together for the last 5. He's got my back. He is my confidant. I can't imagine life without him, but my experience in the relationship includes the burdon of knowing someday I will not have him in my life. Part of the burdon is...

    I'm 13 and dating a 17 year old.

    No don't comment on this saying it's a bad idea because it's not. I hate that age is so much worse in teenage years and we aren't allowed to love who we want. Me and him met through Facebook but possibly knew each other when we were younger. We talked for 7 months before we...

    It's All Relative

    The biggest age difference is in my relationship with myself.  My spirit and mind are along the lines of a goofy teenager most of the time.  My body...not so much.  By decades, I'm afraid.

    Age..Is A Number
