No he is 3 yrs older.
When I was 20 I dated a man that was 8 yrs older and I couldnt get out of my head how immature he must be to date someone so much younger. I really liked him but thought his peers must find him a bore since he chose to date someone much younger. As I matured (but was still in that relationship) his immaturity started to show by being overly critical, being a bit bossy, and a bit of a bully. I was maturing but he wasnt.
I really dont see huge age differences working out the majority of the time. Yes, I realize there ARE exceptions to that rule.

Mine is. I'm 25, he's 49. We met when I was 15. Don't feel the need to stick up for me ladies, he didn't know, lol. Well, most of you already know that from my other posts on this subject. He didn't have children until "us" and he wishes that he were younger so that he didn't hurt so badly when trying to play with them. I think our age difference is great. I have learned a lot. Kid wise, he's a lot more patient. I think he's young at heart because I don't see any place where his age is making him lack. He's smart, been around long enough to have the wisdom that comes with age. But on the other hand, I don't have to put up with any of that childish crap. I guess a downside is that we'll never be together for 50 years.

My SO (I hope to be my DH one day soon, LOL) is 13 yrs older than me. I've found it good & bad out of it. The only bad thing is that his body has been through a lot bc he's worked physical labor for many years & was a hard core partier in the past. So his body is always aching or hurt in some way. LOL He's a pretty good sport about it though. I've thought about how he's 13 yrs older than me...he's totally gonna get old & die on me. I will be left to live the rest of my life without him. He's such an amazing man though. I couldn't imagine walking away from him bc of his age & how it does have an impact on our relationship in some ways. The good part tho is that he's mature, he knows how to treat a woman & he doesn't mind doing things that a 23 yr old likes to do sometimes.
