  • At your age, yes. When someone is in their teens or 20s, no.

  • I agree with missanc. Not if you are in your teens or early 20's. But at your age yes. My dh is 7 years older than me.

  • I have dated older men and I don't usually think age matters BUT...if there is a generation gap that makes it hard to relate to each other it can cause a rift. My dh's ex is ten years older than him. She thought Duran Duran was homosexual music. What? The 80's went right over her head. She never watched The Brady Bunch. These may seem like small things but it's nice to say "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha" and not have to explain the joke!
