    I'm 22, DB is 29. My mom met my dad when she was 28 and he was 23. I am a firm believer age is just a number--to an extent, of course. If you like him and feel comfortable getting back out there, I say go for it. Have fun

    DF and I are only a few months apart - I would say in most cases, age is only a number, but I would kinda agree with you in this case that it would feel weird (to me, and IMO)...

    Finally together in Okinawa and ready to start some new adventures together!

    im 19 and DB is 22.
    personally, i feel that age shouldn't matter (to an extent). if you really want to be with someone, then be with them.
    my parents are 13 years apart and that didn't stop them

    Well I believe 99% of the time that age is just a number (unless its illegal ) but I am also a firm believer in having someone on the same "level" as you (even if that means same age or 10 years difference). By that I mean someone you can hold an intelligent conversation with, enjoy some of the same things, ect...

    I am 5 years younger then husband (Im 27 and hes 32)

    My honest opinion is ONLY if you feel comfortable with the age difference. If you honestly dont, then maybe a good friend is what he could be.......
    Im 26 and DH is 29. Were not to far apart in age but im not sure if I would feel comfortable if ages where vice versa but thats just me. I personally wouldnt feel comfortable with it.

    DH is almost a year younger than me. He's the first younger buy I've been with!

    I think age doesn't always have to be a dealbreaker but it can be more difficult to connect with someone who has very different life experiences than you do and age can definitely play a factor in that. But there are also many many people who make it work, so if it works you say I say go for it!
