How old is too old for a mate...?

I'm 24 years old, and my boyfriend is 33.

People look at me weird when they find out how old he is and wonder why I want to date such an "older man".

Lol I don't see him as "old". 9 years older than me isn't old...

Now if he was like 50, I'd get it.

So, how old is too old? Is your husband much older than you? And how does it work out?

Personally, I wouldn't date anyone more than 2 years older than me. That's always been my rule, regardless of my age. To each their own though. My husband is only 7 months older than me.

I'm 24 and DH is 41. It works out great for us. He is good to me and we have tons of fun together. That is all I care about. You being happy is all that should matter to anyone.

Personally, I can't see myself dating someone more then 5 years older then me and at this point (I'm 24) no one younger than me.

As for other people, I don't think it's any of my business how old someone is. I do wonder why someone would marry someone so much older (like 15+ years) because they would most likely die before you causing lots of heartache, but it's really not my life and as long as everyone is happy, then it's not my place to judge.

I dated a 35 year old when I was 23.

It was incredibly weird, he looked old, he WAS old (to me at 23) and all of his references came from the '80's!  He made jokes that I couldn't understand because he was referencing something that happened when I was like 5.

So it was weird.  I didn't like it.

Ok so...I posted yesterday. But here is my current situation. I met a guy a while back but never really talked to him other than about work(he works for a company that my company does business with.) Anywho we started talking since the break up with my ex and he is 39 soon to be 40 in Jan...I'm 27. Honestly it doesn't bother me one bit. He is so mature and knows so much about life but at the same time is fun to hang around with. I've never been with anyone that much older than me, so let's see where this goes lol...

Mine is my age, 10 months apart.

I'd  totally get with an older man, if he was a good man. And looked like George Clooney. Or Eric Dane. Mmmmmm.

I'm not married, but my kids' father is 13 years older.

My hubby is only 9 days older than me, but I would think that 10 years older would be my cut off. I am not sure, though. It all just depends on the couples true feelings/intentions.
