I am 35 years old and just got out of a year long relationship with someone that was very wrong for me.... took me a few months to see the light, but I did and got out. I met someone new - we started out as friends and I have known him for about 6 months. I was kinda attracted to him when we met, but since I was in this rocky relationship I made sure I kept my feelings in check until I was out of the relationship. Now that I am, I have grown smitten over the new guy, only to find out his age. He is 8 years younger then me.... at first i was in "sticker shock". I even made him show me his driver's license because I didnt believe him. He then asked me my age beause he thought there was no way I was older then 29, 30 at the most. He has not problem with my age and actually loves it because he knows I am independant, established and not going to play games with him. I am the one having a hard time with the ago thing..... Hes good to me, treats my son very well, and is an overall good person, so there should not be an issue... But I just cant get over it and I do not know why.... 

Any advice? Or do i need to just suck it up and get over it?

i would suck it up maybe you are still insecure from your previous relationship and it is moving it's way into this one

Congrats!  At 27 he is plenty old enough to understand what he's getting into so enjoy.  It's not like you trolled the high school for a barely legal senior lol.

Is he immature? No? Then go for it.

For all of you saying age is just a number, would you feel that way if he was 21 and she was 47? Very curious.
