    I was recently watching a Youtube video about a couple that are in a big age gap relationship (the guy being 40 years older than the girl). They were from the Channel 5 TV series, 'Age Gap Love', and seem very happy together. They started their own Youtube channel and website to address questions about age gap relationships.

    So I thought to start a thread about this subject. So who here has been in a big age gap relationship? How did it work out? What were the advantages? What challenges did you face? I'd be interested to hear your stories. This question is not just for girls who've dated older guys, but also guys who have dated older women.

    Or for those of you who haven't been in a big age gap relationship, would you have one?

    Btw, this was the video:

    Yes. Is a 7 year gap in my relationship. It's not an issue. Only if one is stuck up about age. It's a number nothing else

    Ive been in a large age gap relationship- he was 40 me more than 15 years younger! Guy turned out to be an abusive A hole but I think that was him rather than the age gap!! We got a lot of stares- even got told how lucky I was to get my dad to pay for my lunch.

    Not a big age gap itself, but the ages were vastly different, if that makes sense; 18 and 14. I was 14. Bad idea. I regret that. As if an 18 year old had any real interest or anything in common with a 14 year old. Very manipulative and abusive. Having an older boyfriend was not so cool.

    I have been into a 7 year gap relationship but the way he acts not like his own age and that was why I love him. Fun and so funny. Eventually we get along well.

    7 Years isn't that much really - not when you compare it to the very large age gaps like in that video, etc.
