Is 22 and 29 a weird age gap?

I’m 22 and the guy I’m chatting to (friend of a friend) is 29. Now I struggle knowing how I feel about people in general but I think I’m really starting to like this guy and we’ve been like cuddly and he (consensually) grabbed my ass. But I’ve always had an issue with age gap relationships and I don’t know if this is a weird one. I’m in my 4th year of my uni course and he is finishing a PHD
You're both adults tbh. It would be weird if you were under 18 and seeing him but you aren't.

I dated a 30 year old at 18 which was a weird time lol

i mean your both adults but i doing think you should date someone who is 7 years apart you probably want to date someone who is 21 22 23 or 24

I guess try having a look about where you see yourself a year from now if you choose to continue seeing him. Do you think you'd be happy?

I mean, those were my parents ages when they got married so I guess it’s ok.

Sort of is weird as you're in different massive stages of your life but i feel like less people would care seeing as your btoh adults.

Before you know it you will be old and grey, get on with life in whatever form and just enjoy differences. If it doesnt work out at least you tried.
