As someone dating married to a woman a year older than myself, I've never come across any social faux pas associated with it or any comments regarding the meager 12 months between us. I mean, yes, such an arrangement isn't the stereotype of an older male that is put in front of society, but it's far from an uncommon arrangement. Though that begs the question, what has made you ask this or believe this may be an issue?

Lol, I certainly hope so!

(Yes, it is absolutely fine! Why on earth wouldn't it be? The vast majority of people will not care - and if anyone does, who cares as long as you're both happy!)

If that's the case, it may very well be his emotional age showing through that feels odd. At the end of the day, between consenting adults with all their faculties, physical age has very little to do with it all - it's personality and quirks that usually stands out more. Hope it works out for you! :)

Would it bother you if it was the other way round?

Personally, I would say see how it goes and don't let the age thing put you off :)

It's ONE year, how is this a viable reason to even ask this?



It became like a sort of prison. Encased in a silver shell, words so full of bleeding need spilled like drops on dry leaves. And all the while laughter prevailed a long way from here. Nowhere land, nowhere time, nowhere space.

What's with the attitude in your question? The OP has every right to ask her question. Her question is just as viable as any other member.

Yeah you're fine unless he isn't mature enough for you or something, but just see what happens.




There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you.
But there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

I've been in a relationship with a guy who's five years younger than myself for two and a half years now and the age difference has rarely been an issue. If you like someone it's totally worth it. I never regret going for it and giving it a chance. :)

It is strange how it's seen as okay for the guy to be older than the girl but jot the other way around. The test should be, would you be happy introducing that person to your parents. If yes then no problem. If no then you are with the wrong person

I've never experienced this situation myself, but my step mother is ten years older than my dad. Not only is that a huge age difference, but the man in the relationship is the younger one. They have a perfectly fine relationship, and the age thing never became a problem.

It was never a problem when he was younger and with my mother either, who was about eight years older than him.

If two people in a relationship are both emotionally mature enough to handle a serious relationship with each other, than it shouldn't really matter as long as both parties are legal.
