    I know how you feel re liking older blokes! Do you have much in common with the 27 year old?

    Married bloke = definitely out of bounds...

    *putting the pieces together, although perhaps in the wrong way*

    You cannot go out with your teacher! Besides, a ten year age gap when the youngest person is below 20 very rarely works out.
    you mean he'll leave her after getting some action or when he finds a woman nearer his own age? yeah it'll probably happen

    hello...just a little bit of advice needed, i know I'm a newbie and that but i just need an intellectual interpretation of my problem, I'm 17 and I like a man who is 27, do you you think age is an issue? please help. thanks guys. :confused:
    Be prepared for some people not to accept it. I certainly didnt when my mate said she fancied a work colleague last year. Still not to happy about it, and i cannot give u a reason why. Guess its just suspicion as to why someone that much older is interested in someone who is barely out of school. Smacks of peadophillia. Plus i am very protective of her!

    It's normal for girls to like older guys, probably due desire to be with 'more mature' individuals. As you're asking "what will others think of this?", rather than "what do I think of this?", the answer is some will think negatively of it and others will be indifferent. Some may even think positively of it. Relationships wish such age differences are poorly represented in the british population, so statistically - it is a rare incident.

    Hmmmm I've always believed that age gap issues have little to do with the actual age and much more to do with the phase you are at in life. If you're both students, then you're in similar places in life and therefore stand a better chance of making it. At least that's what I think.. it's something to be concerned about but surely it's only an issue if you or others make it one?

    argh its too true. one thing i find with me is that i am more at ease with older men..you know they arent gonna make some stupid joke to their friends to look macho, coz they are over all that stuff.. and that can make starting a reletionship more probable.. it seams to only be blokes who has a problem with the age gap.. read into that what you will....

    In the words of Niles Crane (from Fraiser) - "Its doesn't matter what I think - you already know what you think; like all patients you are just seeking me to confirm that you have made the right choice"

    However in the words of me - Just remember when you are 40 he will be 50. If you think it could last then go for it though.
    Hey, look, thats the situation my 'rents are in! Don't knock it!

    i compleetly agree with this, when i was 14 i was dating a guy who was 19. the age gap there was compleelty wrong and although we both enjoyed it at the time, we both soon got bored and moved on. it was wrong because i was still in school (pre gcse's) and he was working full time with a car! it really hit home to me one day when we went to a pub and he bought me a coke and himself a pint. i was compleetly shocked...ok i was underage but id been drinking at that pub for probably a year! actually it was probably worst when i was 12 and dating a guy who was 20, but he was way way immature and it took us about 2 months before we even kissed!

    from then on i stayed with guys my own age until now!

    now im 18 and dating a guy whos 24. but its different now, because were both in uni. he could just as easily be 19 and be the same person! now i dont think anything of the age difference and im quite happy tellling people that my bf is 24...but hes a bit more cautious. he wont tell his family or friends at home about me and i have to respect that, im sure with time he will!

    my advice to you is this, you obviously are curious so go for it, but treat him the same way you would a guy of your own age. dont do things your not comfortable with. and remeber this, he'll be used to going to pubs and clubs....and its likely to be a large chunk of his social scene...your not even allowed in yet....so be careful.
