I think it depends on the people. I am dating a man 7 years younger. I am about to hit a milestone bday as well. I am at times not totally comfortable with the age difference. Recently we were watching a movie set in the year I graduated HS, he pointed out he was a 11 and I knocked him off the couch. He does poke good natured fun, but he knows when I get uncomfortable. We are both in our 40s and he said when we met he would have never guessed my age and pegged him as older. I told him chronologically I am older, physically he is 😂
What would you rather live with?
Regret if you don’t go for it or heartbreak if long term doesn’t work out?
My partner and I recently broke up on our 5 year anniversary. He is 21 years younger (mid 30s) There are no formulas or guarantees. Committed couples getting married of same age often don’t make it either. Sure, their odds may be better, but if you are compatible who is to say…
Now – I do think it’s more realistic with a younger man in his 30s rather than his 20s. That’s a man-child so curb your expectations. Best of luck.
