    I think the only disadvantage of a massive age difference like that is that you are both at completely different stages in life which may be difficult to accommodate to for each other as your priorities will be different. And of course there is maturity. But other than that as long as you love each other, you can make it work.

    It depends how mature you both are as age is not always an indicator of maturity, she could be a young 35 who has kept her youth or an old 35 who isnt very active.

    If you like each other age doesnt have to be a barrier.

    She might not be ready either, she might not want a family. You should be talking with her about it.

    Pros
    She's 'experienced'
    She has her own place.

    Cons
    She's in a different stage of life (with a career, children maybe)
    You may be just a fling before she decides what she wants (to settle, children, meet someone older)
    The conversation dies quickly.
    You make her feel old by talking about things from her childhood as being 'retro'
    Her skin will feel thinner and older.
    Gravity would have sagged things.

    The skin and sagginess is a good point people think its shallow but attraction just needs to be there. I went out with a 33 year old bloke for a while, his skin was a lot worse than a young guy and his balls sagged due to age. I didnt tell him this lol i gave another reason to break up.

    Haha yes. I dated an older guy (39) and his skin was very thin and his 'performance' was questionable - he blamed it on age himself.
