Age gap relationships

Sholay09Sholay09 Posts: 19Member Whisperer
Hello I am now 20 years old and I am thinking about wanting an older man to be in a romantic relationship with as I am interested in men in their mid 20s to early 30s I wanted to asknow whether it is ok as I feel it should be as I am now an adult myself and also because I do not want anybody to say anything bad or to judge me because I am now in my 20s and old enough to do what I want.

    Hi @Sholay09
    My husband is 9 years older than me and we have never had any issues in our relationship because of age.

    I think it is about finding the right partner for you and age shouldnt be important in an adult relationship :)

    I agree - it's important to focus on the person and not their age.  If I were you I wouldn't be worrying particularly about how old someone is, and concentrate more on whether you have the right things in common, want the same things, make each other happy, etc. :)

    Ok thank you Sam for saying that as I want people also to treat me and talk to me as a grown up and not as a child as it is not like I am underage like I am 13 for an example when I am talking about wanting to be in a relationship with an older man.

    Ok thanks Gill for making me feel a bit more better, confident, happy and more comfortable about it.
