How would you feel in a relationship of a 3yr difference?

I'm currently engaged to a man that is 25yrs old and I'm 28yrs. sometimes I think about the age thing but I guess it could just be my mind playing tricks on me. I guess b/c every relationship I been in the man was always older than me like between a yr and 5yrs older. Everything is good I just sometimes feel shame when people ask how old am i and there was a few times in the beginning of the relationship where i lied about my age to his people this cant be normal.

  • No one would think twice if it was the other way around! Its about emotional maturity, not chronological age!

  • If someone asks how old you are, respond with a smile and say, "Don't you know you should never ask a lady her age!?"

    Age is rarely a factor in a relationship--life experience is far more important...

  • I agree with GoodyBrook, don't give it another thought. Love for the sake of LOVE, damn all the conventions and rules!

  • Now that's an QUESTION for Demi Moore who married Kusner...she's got the face lift jobs to prove it too!   Three years...OMG.   Better to know and be sure he's not a cheater, likes hanging out drinking with the guys, loves porno on the internet, isn't all about controling you; like Tom Cruise.   Hopefully he has no hang ups concerning your age?   I married a guy 7 years younger than me.  I was 32 and he was 25.  It helped that I had a baby face and looked 25 when I was 32-  LOL!  Age isn't important, but LOVE IS!
