What is the age difference between you and your SO?

Maybe not now, but eventually you will.

My bf is 27 and I am 43 so we have 16 years between us.  Older men have actually yelled at me on the streets when we are together because of our age difference.  It doesn't matter to me that I am older and have a hot young bf.  Love really doesn't care about age as long as you are of legal age I say rock on and don't worry about what others think.  Life is way too short to worry what others think about you.

How long have you been together?

Life's indeed too short to care what others think, or not to do things because they are not conventional.

However, with the age difference this big... I really would not make any long term plans. Much older woman/much younger man thing does work..short term. A few months, a year. IMHO, no longer than that. There always comes a point where the man in question looks around and gets reminded that there are plenty of women out there who are his age or younger and inevitably goes back to dating those women.

Btw, I am soon to be 43, and have had two very brief MD relationships twice, me being D, and the age difference being 8 and 12 years. Both lasted around 8 months.

My BF is 9 years older than me. Which is not too much of a stretch, but he is the oldest guy I've ever dated.

I am 44 and my partner is 19.  Despite what others may think or say, we have a tremendous amount of things in common!  She is the light of my life.

My BF is 40 years older than me, sounds a little crazy, huh? But we are amazing...I believe we will be together finally! I love him so much that I dont care how old he is or what others think of me.
