Although, we can't deny that society does play a role. We live in it, after all. Anyone have experience with this? Looking for really good insight here. Originally Posted by quest-x.

She's 24, not Anyway, coming from a guy who dated a 33 year old, there's nothing different. A lot of the comments about "Oh, well, she will be mature and will teach you things in the bedroom! Then again, my interests include stuff like reading, philosophy, politics, and the like. If you are at least intelligent, no problems. That's not necessarily the end of the world, but you have to be a little more vigilant to make sure your relationship is always one between equals and neither of you ends up resenting the other.
Different life places will account for most of it. If she's in college and you have a career, that's very different amounts of free time and windows of availability.
There isn't much to look out for. I am in a relationship that started with her at 19 me at 25 we have been together 7 years at this point. IMO emotional maturity is the most important thing. You can have things in common, but that doesn't matter if she or you can't handle a relationship without possessiveness.

How did that go? Did you have a set age when you wanted to start having kids? To date we have only discussed marriage for the simple fact she is a Taiwanese citizen.
Neither of us are interested in marriage as we aren't religious. We have considered children, but of course we would rather wait while she develops her career. The most important thing in any relationship is the willingness to allow each other to grow; sadly this means you may not stay together. We are both interested in having children, just want more stability and for her to be generating a decent income. I make enough for us both, but she wants her own personal security which i completely understand and want her to have.
A lot of people are saying that 5 years isn't a lot, but I would disagree here. At 20 she's either going to still be in college or still be working some shit retail job. You're probably done with college and working a good full time job. Can you be sure that by time you're that she'll be graduated and have a good job that could help support you two? Or will she just end up working shit jobs for the rest of her life while you foot the bill? She kept talking about a lot of shit that I just refused to care about and it wasnt great.
I'm not going to lie I was hesitant. She was great but she was also only a sophomore. Now she didn't look like it but still. In the end I decided I would let her and I determine if we were on the right maturity level.
Undressed: What’s the Deal With the Age Gap in Relationships?
Moral of the story, look past what your dick is thinking and determine if you are actually at the same point. My Boyfriend is six years older than me, I'm 18 he's We have a healthy relationship because we can both learn from each other and he can give good advice and support for things he's already been through.
However it's not always easy, a lot of my "friends" isolated me and excluded my boyfriend. But once you get past 20 it's not such a big deal. It probably won't be forever because by the time you start thinking of buying a house, she's thinking of going on spring break. Going out to bars. It's something I never really thought of when I was dating my ex I was 26, she was 20 but when my buddies and I would hang out, she couldn't go.
And that pissed her off. Dan Savage's campsite rule.
Why does this question even matter? I mean, come on. Age has little to do with whether a relationship will last. Have you see the divorce rate? The only thing that matters is if you're both in it for the same reasons and if you're in it for something longer than a fart in the wind, if you can both get along and enjoy each others' company. Other than that, age is meaningless precisely because people create this myth that closer age means longer lasting relationships, when all the data points to this being completely baseless.
It is a non-factor for how long a relationship lasts. Just go ask all your friends how many relationships they've been in and ask how close in age they were to their past partners.
I think everyone needs to take a good long hard look at perpetuating this myth that age gaps cause relationship issues. He had a drinking problem, and that was the one insurmountable obstacle. I got a little tired of having to be the sober, responsible one who ends up talking police out of arresting my boyfriend when he went off on a bender.
For every life lesson you teach them, you learn something in return. Although it may not be what you expect. One of the funnest things about dating younger is staying up to speed with youth culture. When you hang out with younger people, you start to see things with their eyes, which is very cool.
As for my family.. I was a goth back in college. I travelled across the country twice. Dating someone nearly 20 years younger barely elicited a reaction from people who know me. But overall, they were very accepting, while also being understandably concerned about the emotional damage such relationships might cause when they ended.
I know there are never any guarantees. Knowing there was an expiration date on these liaisons made them that much more intense. This is why my last relationship ended, ultimately. This may sound strange, but it kind of turns me on to think about my exes telling stories as they age about the crazy times they had with that older woman, back in their 20s. Just like I would tell them about the wild things I did when I was their age.STORYTIME: I was 15 with a 24 year old - Vanessa Blac
