age gap.... ????????????????

I am talkingto someone and there is a 9 year age diff. I am kinda nervous about dating again ne ways let alone dating an older guy. I am 23 he's 32. Is this ok??? Age is nothing more than a number right??
My mom had me at 16 and dad was 27 .... she just turned 39 this year so that only makes her 7 years older than the man I am interested in. Could that be wierd??? Now that I am an adult I dont think it bothers me so much.
Are there any of you with a significant age gap between you & hubby/so ????

  • If it doesnt bother you or him then who's to say its not right? If you like each other explore the relationship.

  • I dont know your situation, so I dont want to rain on your parade. But all I have to offer you on this matter is this advice : Make sure you are both on the same page. Meaning, make sure you both are looking for the same thing out of a relationship at this time in your lives...because If not you will be arguing all the time, which is a lost cause because one of your has been there done that, the other hasnt and wants to....regardless, it can turn into a bad situation, and a miserable one at that. Just make sure its what you both want before jumping in to deep....or getting pregnant.....and make sure you can let him be his age, and he can let you be yours, all while loving it that way......

  • There is an 8 year gap between my Hubby and i and we are fine. If it doesn't bother you it shouldn't bother anyone else
