I'm pretty upset to find out how young he is, I assumed he was around 25/26. We've been speaking for a few days after meeting a couple of weeks ago.
He's brilliant, we like the same things, he makes me laugh. He's intelligent and gorgeous. I REALLY like him. Sounds ridiculous after a week, but there is real chemistry and I'm GUTTED.
I wasn't thinking about a future yet (obviously!), but this has kind of bought it to the forefront. Would it work? I don't want to get into a completely casual thing, I wanted to date and see how it went. But is there any point now?
I am 5 years older than DH and he was 21 when we got together. Still together 12 years later, marriage kids mortgage cat etc. The only time I think about it is birthday time when I get irrationally jealous of his age for 48 hours or so .
dh was 19 when we started going out, and I was 27 (he thought I was younger and I thought he was older when we first got together). We've been married 19 years so far, and the age hasn't bothered us one bit once his mother got over it.
