Is age just a number?

How do you feel about relationships and age gaps. Do you think an 11 year age difference is to much?

Is age just a number?

I really think that it all depends on how old you are. Personally, I have never been attracted to somebody that is that much older than myself because the age gap is more than one decade. I guess I have looked at it this way:
When I was in JK, that person was already in grade 8


It can and does work for many people.

As long as everyone is an adult, it doesn't matter. I've dated men who were 11 years older than me. My husband is 7 years older than me. I've never dated anyone younger than me, but if I had found someone I had liked, I wouldn't have had any issues.

Not bad

No it’s not a bad age gap

My husband and I are 9 years apart.
We've been together almost 19 years.
I'd say it doesn't make a difference, as long as they are both consenting adults.

Just a number but...

I’ve dated a few older men. Age is what you make it however there will always be things that are fundamentally different about each of you, as you are both at seriously different points in your life. That’s ok! Just always try and understand that someone else’s opinion may suit them for where they are in life. It helps!

not really...

Personally I don't think age is just a number. You can get some people who are a lot older than they seem and others who seem young for their age. I have friends who are a good 10 years older than myself - I don't seem to get on with my own age group - just can't "connect" with them. As for partners, I think an age gap is ok, but not massive gap. They do say men take longer to mature - not sure if that is actually correct, but I've always tended to go for the older guy, although my current guy is almost a year younger than myself.

No way

I have a 15yr age gap with my partner & we've been together 25 yrs, we have the strongest relationship from anyone we know.. Dont get me wrong there are issuess that go hand in hand with age gap relationships, but if you have a strong friendship, understanding & great communication there is nothing that cant be handled.

No

age can be an issue when the other person is just in a different part of life and the other younger person may not have experienced it yet so they can’t understand it or relate.

maybe?

i guess it is in a way. but i wouldnt be able to date someone 3-4 years older than i am, but that might be just because im 21! im sure if i was a bit older my views would be different. so i would say yes-no depending on my age personally.

Age doesn’t matter

Me and my boyfriend have 19 years between us and we don’t even think about it not something you think about we get on good , we get each other so why should our age stop us from being happy . Some people may not like it or look down on it but it’s just a number at the end of the day as long as it’s legal obviously
