My partner now is 16 years older than me and it doesn't bother me at all or the people I hang around with. It's not like we sit and discuss it ever. I think it came up once and we did the math, laughed and moved on with our lives because we liked each other as people. Age is one of the last things I ask potential partners of mine because it holds very little relevancy in my life but when it's all said and done the ones I usually am with longer than a date are older than me. It just happens to be that way. I don't seek it out.
