Everything that we may want to do together will be at vastly different ages: getting married, having children, retiring, even dying! We belong to different generations, which can make for some very interesting conversations because we often have completely different perspectives on things.
I don’t ask people if they’re still with their 20-year-old boyfriends, so why is it necessary to bring up my partner’s age?
That’s how it supposed to be, regardless of whether you are the same age or if there’s an age gap.
Age gaps in relationships can become a problem if the couple don’t share the same core values about life, or if they lack the necessary skills and experience to maintain a relationship.
I had just turned 17 when I went on a date with a guy that’s 12 ½ years older than me.
He was somebody I’d worked with for the past nine months; we had always got on well, and I definitely fancied him, but I’d assumed he wouldn’t be interested in me and never acted on my feelings.
