Do you see age as a number?

i know some people have a problem with the age difference in couples. i personally think age is just a number and you cant help who you fall in love with. my boyfriend is 9 years and 2 months older then me. my step-dad is 15 years older then my mom. what is your opinion on this?

  • I think it is just a number as long as everyone is an adult. My husband is 8 years older than me, we have been together since I was 18 and he was 26. As long as both parties understand that it is an equal relationship, no problems

  • As long as everyone is at least 18 years of age, I don't care.

  • My father was 13 years older than my mother and they had a long and happy marriage.

    I think age is an attitude not a number.

  • I agree that I don't care what other couples do, but for me to seriously consider someone date-able, they need to be at most 6-7 years older than I am. I've never met anyone younger (I'm 31) that I would want to be in a serious relationship with.

  • Until I had a one time sexual encounter with a guy 15 years younger than I am, I would have thought it was a number. However, he is incredibly immature, very inexperienced with the world. He was attracted to older women and I was flattered that a young guy was interested in me. However, I will stick with guys my age. This guy was a huge mistake!! I am 36 and he is 21.
