    That calculation is such a load of crap hahaha
    it;s completely made up , with no basis in anything other than people wanting to impose some sort of weird 'rule' to justify their made up slurs towards people

    traditionally it was boys who used to push the rule as reason why girls/ young women shouldn't be dating men ....

    but now it's more paedogeddon / paedo panic based - even though the slightly dodgy age / legality wise relationships that paedo panic strikes are nothign to do with paedophilia as defined clinically or in the law.

    Hello

    I am marrying the love of my life THIS NOVEMBER !!!! SO excited.

    I am 22 and he is 38. I have never looked at him and seen his age as a thing. And he doesn't look at me as I am younger.. He is romantic, caring, patient, loving, fun, devoted and does everything and everything for me. I was in a road traffic accident last year and was hospitalised for a week and he left work early each day to come into hospital to wash me and wash my hair and make sure I had my things near me as I was incapacitated and I would've never thought in my wildest dreams any man I was with or engaged to would do this for me and I owe him everything now. In sickness and in health !
    I am mature minded for my age and have never fitted in with people my age anyway and I think that's why we click. We do and love the same things, all hobbies and things like dogs, cars, anything you can think of. We met when I was working in a supermarket 2 and a half years ago now and we just hit it off. The humour and allsorts.

    Age doesn't define a person. Trust me. And my mom says shes never seen me like this and his parents have never seen him so happy, after he split with his ex and went through some difficult times, he lost a ton of weight and allsorts and they say that I brought him back from the brink.

    Age really is just a number. I've only just joined the student room because I'm applying for a uni course next sept 2017 when by that time I'll be 23. And oh well, so what. I joke and say I've done it all backward ! Gone to work for 4 years, got married then gone to uni ! This topic caught my eye first on here so this is my first post !

    Do what makes you happy - to everyone. Cause life is short and when its your last days on this earth you don't want to be lying there thinking about what you should've done !

    Hope I've helped or inspired some of you out there and at the end of the day love is a powerful and magical thing. Enjoy it ! XXX
