Okay, so maybe I am the only one here with that kind of an age difference.

I really, really want to hear this story. It sounds awesome!

And just for the record, I never mind people thread-jacking when I do so much of it myself.

I'll be monitoring this thread. I have a bit of a thing for older guys but I haven't dated yet. I'm always interested in hearing about people in relationships with large age gaps, it helps me ruminate what it would be like dating a friend of mine, who is 22yrs older than me.

I guess being in different life stages is definitely the biggest hurdle.

A little off topic but still related: at what point do you consider a gap a "big difference"? Not necessarily that you think it's problematic or weird, just that it's a notable age difference?

For me, I think it's at 8 or 9 years. I don't think there's ever a point where I wouldn't see 10 years as a big difference. And once you're past your early 20s, 6 doesn't seem like much. 7, 8, 9 years starts to seem like it'd be noticeable in certain aspects, like life-planning or talking about childhood

Yeah but what if you don't have kids, lay SO & I ? Then what? Well ... Since he is 10 years older then me ... I guess I will be "pushing his wheelchair & changing his depends"

Well, I don't have a SO and it'll likely stay that way, so have got to get the kids on board for gruel feeding and wheelchair pushing. It's only fair, since I spent several years doing it for them.

Milos_Mommy, I think it becomes a big difference when it puts people in different stages of life. So it would vary between different people of the same age. That said, I don't think 10 years is a big deal between a 50 year old and a 60 year old.

My best friends, the most happily married ones that are the most compatible with their spouses have the biggest age gaps. One is 41, her husband is 69. They have a 17 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. They are super well matched, I honestly can't see them with different people, and neither can they.

Another friend is 32 and her SO of 11 years is 44. They're super happy together as well.
