    Give it a shot, Igotalife! I don't think age matters (in either case older/younger) as long as you share the same interests, mentality, life view or philosophy.

    For the record my husband is 10 years older than I am, and the only time I feel the age difference is when he sings jingles for commercials I've never heard (funny, but true!). People closer to his age will instantly get it, and I won't. (Most of the time, even though I'm younger, I'm the one that acts the most mature. )

    Previously, I've also been with persons younger than myself and, again, that posed no problem as what we had in common far outweighed the difference in years.

    So don't let some little number get in the way of a great experience, Igotalife, and give the guy a chance. You just might be surprised and delighted by the outcome. Good luck to you in life and love!

    1) God, yes.
    2) God, yes.

    But only at first... now, after nearly 8 years together, not at all. When my hubby and I met, he had JUST turned 23, and I was a divorcee pushing 30. I asked him how old he was on our first date, and I admit I was freaked out enough to think that was going to be our last date. However, my hubby was probably a little more mature than a lot of 23-year-olds...he had finished his secondary education, been at the same job for nearly four years, and owned his own house - all that helped make it not seem too weird.

    I'll tell you one thing that was very awkward at the beginning and that has never fully resolved itself - his friends' girlfriends and wives are ALL younger than their partners and therefore, a LOT younger than me, and I never clicked with them (they're not the friendliest bunch you'll meet). However, we don't socialize with them very often so it's no big deal - also, the women are now getting older and having kids, so when we do meet up at least we have baby talk to fill in the awkward silences.

    My husband is 23 years older than I am. Until recently, it was never an issue. When people get older things change a lot so it's more noticeable. I still would do it all over again though. He's the best!!

    My husband is only two years older than me, so no biggie. We jive real well.

    The biggest age difference I experienced when dating was with a guy who was 19 years older than me. It was actually a pretty good relationship, but it had to end because he didn't want any more children, and I wanted to be a mother someday - but not a stepmom only.

    I preferred dating older men. I had dated guys younger than me, but they got on my nerves real quick. I just couldn't tolerate the immaturity. They were fine for a fling, but not a long-term thing. Of course, different strokes for different folks.

    I dont have a husband, because I am only 13. But I DO have a boyfriend. I am in 8th grade and he is in 9th grade. I am almost 14, and he is almost 16. So it is just about 2 years difference. No biggie.
