Well, where is your problem? If you both love each other and get on well with each other, then who cares about the age gap? Don't listen to what other people say. I know a woman who's husband is thirthy years older than she is. That would give me something to worry about. Because of their children. Compared with that, you're fine. Don't worry about it.

i do love him alot, but alot of my friends are the same age as me and for me to be the only one to be with an older guy is shocking to them,i mentioned that one day i'd love to have a baby and they all turned round in horror and said that he will practically be a grandad by the time he/she is 18..and that he wont be able to be a proper dad..comments like that make you think about your future together!

I think it's fine: at 21 you're surely old enough to make your own decisions. A few years ago it might not have been so fine - but you're an adult, it's your life. Age doesn't mean much really. I know a 30 year old who regularly gets ID'd and acts as though he were about 18 too..

since u cannot possibly ignore them ......try to live up to what they say........and i am sure that after some time, everything will go back to the place where everything sounds completely perfect !!!
All the best anyway !!!

Shouldn't be a problem in my opinion, however you have to live with the fact that he will get false teeth before you do

No it isn't. Don't listen to a word people say otherwise. Your only danger is that the gap is there, and you may see things differently to your boyfriend in a few years time. Besides, can you honestly tell me that you constantly see him as a 35yr old? I'm willing to bet that you actually have to remind yourself he is 35 at times. Don't break up with someone just because of a few years difference.
