Age difference relationships.

Who has the biggest age difference here between them and their SO/DH?

Who would never date/marry someone with a huge age difference like 10+ years or more. Who would be ok with that?

what are the pittfalls? what are the good parts?

I ask because a friend of mine says her father (in his 40s) has been talking to a girl our age (22ish-23ish) and I would like to think I am pretty open minded and wouldnt mind dating a man in his mid to early 30's...but I think it would be strange (for me anyway) to start a relationship with someone within a 5 yr age difference from my parents (older or younger) KWIM?

Dh is 13 years older than I, and 9 years younger than my dad. DH and I have an excellent relationship and we wouldn't change it for the world. I love older men. Boys my age are not my cup of tea.

8 years older than me. Best relationship I've ever been in. Over 15 years with each other so far.

My wife is 4 years older than me. It works out great for us. I know a couple though that have a huge age gap. My wife picks on the guy that he was graduating high school when his girlfriend started kindergarten.

My SO is 13 years older. I barely even notice the difference unless he mentions how he graduated from high-school the same year I entered kindergarten.

My dh is only five years older than me. To date someone who's close to my fathers age would creep me out. That's just me though.

My dh is 10 years older. We met when I was 30, he was 40. It's not a big deal at all when you are an adult.
