    I was 6 with a 12, 15 with a 24, 21 with a 38. Now singoo at 22 but mingling with a 42 yr old. I personally like my men older.

    Edit, as some people think that because they're having sex that I meant sex:
    Obviously when I was 6 I wasn't having sex.

    When you love someone, age doesn't really matter. My only concern is men tend to mature later than women. Not always, but in my personal experience they do. I dated a guy of 19, when I was 21 and he just all over the place, into me one minute, off the next, so it only lasted a month.

    Now I'm dating a guy 4 years older and it feels like we're at the same maturity level. So as long as you think he's mature then go for it.

    age is irrelevant. its all about how you feel.

    if you wanna be with him, be with him.

    I got with a girl 5 years younger than me, was a great relationship better than the 1 i had with someone the same age.

    I totally agree with that. I've observed most guys mature quite late. The guy I'm with has actually matured inside quite early. I feel that he's a real gentleman and not a boy.

    Before I start I'll say that I get self-conscious easily.
    I'm really into a guy that's nearly three years younger than me. I hope it works out because he's really made me fall in love. Mainly his personality. My question is, Is it seen as socially acceptable for a guy to be over two years younger in a relationship? I mean a proper intimate relationship leading to marriage. Even if people say no, it won't change anything, but I want to know about if other people, especially other girls will see it as socially unacceptable to see another girl getting married to a guy that's nearly three years younger than her.
    Not strange at all! I know a lot of happily married couples, with the woman being older by a few years, few being 4/5...

    I didn't imply sex. In fact I'm not having sex until I'm married myself. But I guess it's kind of cute, kids being in romantic relationships(not sex).
