Does Age matter


Now at the age of 35 I started seeing a lovely guy who was 11 years younger. I called it offer because I felt he too young although very mature. So my question is does age really matter?

As long as everyone involved is an adult, no, I don't think it matters. If you enjoy someone's company, keep them around. Hubby is 7 years older than me. My son's father is 9 years older. My other serious relationship was 11 years older than me.

Age is a number. It's about maturity and where someone is in their life that matters more.
If you connect on the most deep level, why wouldn't you see where it went naturally? You would be doing yourself a disservice if you only think about your ages.

I'm very unsure that a man of 24 would be at the same place in life as a mature woman who is 35. However you are both adults and can do whatever you would like. If you think there might be something there give it a try.

Your as old as you think...

No, age doesn't matter. Happiness, trust, loyalty and companionship does

To some extent it does matter

My husband is 1 hlf year old younger than me..for us the age never mattered
But when I tell other people that I’m older and his younger I always get this look
It’s uncomfortable

I agree with another comment that a couple 24 and 35 may be at different places. For example you may be ready to get married and have kids at this moment while he may not be. Of course those are things you can discuss and gauge, it's not the same for everyone. I think what matters most is the commitment and communication of the two people involved. My aunt is 5 years older than her husband and they have been married over 25 years!

Let me further add...

I met my husband at 23, he was 33.
We have now been together 20 years, and going strong.

So no, it's not about age. It's about maturity and where you each are in your life.

The young versus the old

Hmmm... A tough topic... Personally I have experienced the cliche of dating an older man for 17 yrs on and off...to be left for an even younger woman. He was 7 rs older than me!! So as life goes on I caught a younger man's interest, he was sweet, kind, etc all the things you dreamed of the word love.... BUT... Being the naive woman I am and the past relationship rearing its ugly head... Im at an idle moment.... Do I proceed with caution? Or is will his feelings change? Or I wonder would if my belly turns him off? Questions start to arise? ...Or I wonder if I intimidate him.... Anyways, still... Where would one go from here... The answers are endless...

It's about the connection, not a number. Provided everyone is a mentally competent adult, age shouldn't be a determining factor in whether they are suitable for a relationship.

If you enjoy this guy's company don't let his age be the reason it doesn't work out. My sister-in-law is 20 years younger than her husband. They have been happily married for 19 years. My husband is 7 years older than me and we have been together for 23 years, married for almost 17 years.

Age always matters..

As others mentioned, as long as everyone is of age, it shouldn't matter, however, for me age really matters. I dated someone 5 years older than me and those 5 years were brought up constantly in the relationship because he had already burnt stages in his life that I hadn't and he didn't want to go through them again. However, if this is something you can both get past, by all means. My biggest recommendation is to have ALL the important conversations early on. I know no one wants to have the 'how many kids' conversation at the very beginning, but with such a big age different, I would suggest you make sure you're both in the same page before you both get emotionally involved.
