 3 years.  I was a freshman in college and he had just graduated.  He wanted a family and to move to CA...I wanted to party and finish school close to home.  Long distance didn't work out.  

Current BF is a year older and it works out just right.

My sister's husband is six years older than her. My dad is six years older than my mom. My grandmother is a couple years older than my grandpa. I'm the same age as my husband. I have a cousin who is married to a man around 12 years older than her. All of us are happy. It depends on the person. I dated a few guys older than me for a while and generally preferred it but I married one my same age. I'm just a couple months older. But he was considerably more mature for the most part than a lot of other guys, younger and older, that I had dated.

My husband is 8 years older than I. We have been married 37 years. While in college I dated younger and older -- the oldest was about 25 years older. Did not take me long to figure out it was just creepy. Moved on. As someone else said, it is best to date a *real man" and they can be of any age. The guy that was 25 years older than me had NOT grown up.... A good man is a good man. That's the key. Oh - and if they are weirdly tied to the their mothers - RUN. Momma's spoiled boys are awful.

Not going to lie I started madly punching numbers on my calculator and I don't know that I disagree with that statement...seems to be reasonably legit

HarlanLivesOn - 2015-03-31 3:59 PM That's what I figured. I'm 26 and it seems like the only available (nice) guys out there are younger than me, or are mid 30s coming out of a divorce.
Snag the good young one before someone else does and has a baby with him... then he is gone...........now as long as it is all legal.  LOL

I've dated older, even close to 20 years older and now am coming up on two years with a guy who is 4 years younger than me but he's light years ahead of most older guys in terms of maturity. It is a good thing I don't want to go bar hopping, clubbing or anything after 10 p.m. because that is the time he does night chores with horses, puts on pajama pants and is in for the night. We act like we're 50 and 46 instead of 31 and 27. LOL. I don't think age is the main determining factor.....you just have to find the right person, the one you want to wring their neck but don't because you'd miss them later. LOL.

Married my Hubby who was 20 years my senior... Amazing man, miss him....... due to undiagnosed health issues he passed away.  Always healthy(I thought) and active, he was my best friend.  I can't stand most "men" my age due to the large percentage who don't have mothers willing to make their "little" boys GROW UP!

My boyfriend is 10 years older than me. We have been together for nearly 9 years - yes I know it's time to get married! lol

The age gap has not been an issue for us at all. Boys/men mature later than women in most cases so if anything it has helped save a lot of drama to date a man who is a few years older.

I'm 44, he's 29. It wasn't a problem at first, but now he's thinking he will want marriage, kids and picket fences. There's a lot of love and attraction between us but not enough to ask him to not want those things for himself. It's frustrating, confusing and heartbreaking. I don't recommend it unless both of you know very strongly what your needs are for your happiness.

 I think the closer you get to 20+ years apart, the more unlikely it is it will work out. Especially long term. Other than that though, I don't think age matters. Everyone's an individual. Some people are mature and ready to settle down when they're 22, some never are. What matters is finding the person that loves you, respects you, and shares the same goals and beliefs as you.

My husband is 13 years older - and doesn't bother me at all................I guess I really think it depends on the chemistry between two people on whether the relationship is gonna work, not your ages. Soooo many variable between two people.

My husband and I are 25 years apart. We've been together 6 years. Married 2 this month. He has 3 kids from previous marriages. I don't want kids. SO... We had it worked out before we ever got married. He is amazing and my best friend. We are perfect for each other. No things are not always rainbows and flowers. We argue. And some days we would love to shoot each other but 100% of the time I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world. Ive dated guys my age and within 7 years of my age. Obviously they didn't work out. I never imagined I would be with someone this much older than me, but we compliment each other. He acts younger than his age and I feel a whole lot older than I am.

I get the "oh he's your dad?" ALOT. I usually come back with Yea I call him Big Daddy. Or my personal favorite... No. He pays me by the hour. :)

The only thing I would change.... I wish I was older so we could be together longer.
