I'm currently in a relationship with a fella the age of my older sister. It has its perks and it has its bummer moments, but I think dating up in age is.

I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I, too, am often mistaken for much younger, whereas people tend to assume my BF is older. I'm 33 and about to marry at 28 year old. It's worked out really well for me. He's not as jaded as some of the guys my age! My wife is 6 years older than me, we met when I was 24 and she was I found her maturity refreshing.
We've been married now going on 15 years. I wasn't ready for kids until well into my 30's, and by then my wife was past the point where having kids would have been easy.
He Might Be Stuck In His Ways…
We ended up adopting. Yeah, I was thinking about the kids issue. We'll have to talk about it. Me personally, kids are not that important to me. He was surprisingly mature and was able to teach me things as well as me him so it balanced nicely. We sharpen each other still.
Dating Someone Years Older Than You - LONG TERM?
So yes, yes I would. Sometimes he feels much younger, but most of the time, we don't even notice the age difference. We've been going strong for a while now, and hope it will last the rest of our lives. It's not really that much of an age difference. Dating a slightly or much younger person can be really fun. I married a guy 7 years younger than me.
I met him when I was 31 and he was He didn't believe me age, and I ended up showing him my ID.
Dating Someone 6-7 Years Older Than You - LONG TERM?
No one said anything to me, but I am in a country where that is not really frowned upon. If you were here, I would say go for it, there really isn't a problem. Sometimes, though, cultural problems can cause more of a hassle than a relationship is worth. If I were you, I might meet him, and go from there. I'm 33 boyfriend is 26, no problem at all with it.
Been together 3 years and its the best relationship I've had as we're on the same page with all the big things kids, money, religion, politics, lifestyles etc.
My mom and dad had 7 years between them, her being older; it was funny, because if you knew them, you would swear the age difference was the other way around. I'm 9 years, 11 months years older than my fiance. We met when I was 35 and he was I was skeptical at first but 4 years later and I've never been happier. Yeah, I believe so too. The problem is sometimes with the society and both families. That's what might cause an issue. Depends on your interest. I met my boyfriend six years ago at a videogame convention and he is now 30 and I'm now We never really dated; we were in a LDR for 9 months.
Like the commenters here, I look younger than my age and people are always shocked when they realize I'm I'm in my 40s and have dated up to 12 years younger - but they can't feel younger and have it work, it seems. They'd have to really have their shit together. I wouldn't discount it but I wouldn't seek it out either. I'm currently dating a guy 9 years younger, so yes. I would not consider him a long-term prospect, but that's more down to the particular guy and our conflicting goals than the age difference.
I would if he was truly amazing and I was single. I'm 30 so seven years would be 23 which is really a minimum for me though. My mum is 6 years older than my dad but they were 29 and 35 when they met IIRC and at that age, a 6 years difference isn't a big deal at all IMO. I would find it weird for myself, because it would be technically possible that I could have taught him when I was a teacher in my early twenties, and the "no relationships with students" thing was drummed in so strongly that I've always been iffy about blokes more than a couple of years younger ever since.
I wouldn't look twice at it, although as others have mentioned you may find you're on totally different pages where kids are concerned, which may be a major problem. I met my husband when I was 31 and he was I also looked really young, like you. We met rock climbing, so we immediately had a lot in common.
But as soon as I realized how much younger he was, I kept it strictly friends, thinking he wouldn't want a serious relationship. So, we hung out as friends for over a year, climbing and hiking, etc. Finally, I started to have deeper feelings for him, but I was worried, like you, about the age gap and in my case about ruining a great friendship. We joined a coed softball league, and in the first game I got nailed in the face by a grounder. I'd never played before, and he'd had to really convince me to join this team.
