I have arranged to meet a guy who is 15 years younger than me. That was about my cut off point tbh

I haven't really taken him seriously due to his age (not sure why) but he seems quite keen.

He doesn't seem bothered by my age so why should I? Tho I did say to him surely there are lots of lovely girls where he lives?

Let's just see how it goes.

Last guy I saw (and also an exbf from years ago) was 6 years younger - it didn't seem to bother him then or more recently.

Good luck

I've had relationships with a few younger men in recent years. They were short term. I would prefer someone round about my own age TBH.

If he knows how old you are then it doesn't bother him. Give it a go.

There is a similar age difference between a my dh and me and we met at work too. We had quite a few other obstacles to overcome but we made it and have now been married for 15 years with a ds.

I think it is more important that you have similar outlooks and goals and if you have then the age gap won't be an issue.

my bf is 20 years younger than me well he just had a birthday so he is now 32 and i am 51 we have plenty in common

I'm 51 and he's 40... been together 18 months... no problem with any aspect of the age thing, not physical or energy wise... infact I sometimes think he's older than me the way he does things.
