    It depends on the relative age difference, and the type of people they are.

    I'd agree with that. Depends where you are in life. A 22 year old women with a 16 year old boyfriend? Nah. But a 35 year old women with a 29 year old husband/boyfriend? Not really such a difference at that age.

    Oh yeah and women generally seem to go for older men as men are often more immature than women of the same age (emotionally) and older men usually offer security and financial stability.
    So what's your oldest then?

    its the 'norm' and if someone doesnt follow the 'norm' like me and my bf we have to put up with abuse, and bullyin from people.

    even my own friends think it is worng!

    i remember a while back me, glitter and dizzzzy were in an arguement where they were tellin me its wrong for us to be together. however glitter apologised and said she will not tell me what she thinks about the issue again. at least one person as the decency to relaise we have our lifes and get on with it, no matter what their personal opinion is!

    it does get easier as you get older though and the longer you are together, the more people accept it
    particularly when other people start going out with people of different ages

    i was in yr 11 and he was in yr 9

    is that the same age difference as u?

    so when i was in yr 13 he was in yr 11??

    Don't really think she's short of a bob or two.

    Age difference is only a big thing when you're young I think.
