My DH is 4 1/2 yrs. younger than me. When I first met him, I thought he was too young for me. But, when I learned that his oldest child was 3 yrs. older than my son, I figured it would be OK. He used to look really young for his age, but not anymore.

Well I'll say I'm not but I just wanted to say some people have different attractions. I've always been attracted to guys a few years older than me. DH is 2 years older than me. I always felt a little weird dating someone my age or younger.

My most responsible and mature boyfriend was 9 years younger than me - I was early 30s and he was early 20s..

I wonder if that says more about the average male 30 yr old or what :) I have a problem with immature males, no matter what the age. I work with some that are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s.... The immature 40 year olds (and older) are the ones that bother me the most.

I'm wondering whether OUR age makes a difference. When I was younger I wouldn't have been interested in anyone younger than me, but I met my husband when I was 36 and he was 34. At those ages, the two years didn't make any difference in the world and I'm not sure that 5 or 6 years would have mattered either.

Just another thought.

My husband is 4 years younger than me. I was 23 and he was 19 when we first met. NEVER did I think I would be interested in someone younger than me, but I fell in love with him despite his age. We've been married for almost 7 years now and are more in love now than 7 years ago.

He wrote me a love letter for Valentines Day. The last part says, "Love is the realization that you and I will never spend a day where our hearts are not united until the day both of our breaths have finally left our bodies and we go on to whatever the next life may hold for us. Love is hoping I will find you again in my next life." (Yes, I'm bragging on him a little bit.)

I was just thinking about this the other day!

My current one, boobalah, is about 4 1/2 yrs younger.

My first husband, the now :lol3: "Rotund One" :lol3: is 6 yrs older.

My late husband :( was 27 yrs older. I never worried about him looking at a younger woman. I WAS the younger woman.

I liked older Asian men. How on earth I'm with a younger white one is still baffling me to this day.

LILYBELLE ~ Would he say that it's because he has been married to you for 4 1/2 years! ;) You know I'm only kidding!

.... The immature 40 year olds (and older) are the ones that bother me the most.

NELIE ~ What if we are almost 53?

I'm ...... not sure that 5 or 6 years would have mattered either.

Just another thought.

ZEDAUS ~ I am 6 years older than my wife, her first husband is almost 4 years older than me, that marraige lasted a little over a year. We have been married for 11+ years. One of the things that was a little difficult for us when we first met was finding common ground for things to talk about. Being the 6 year age difference we grew up to different music, television, fads, etc. We grew up 100 miles apart from each other. I am in construction, she is a teacher, (were) different religions. My kids were 10 and 13, her daughter was 6. The thing we did know right away was that we liked each other. I remember asking Angie one night, early in our dating, what am I going to talk about with you when I graduated high school the year before you started junior high, we have nothing in common there. Although I had been divorced for 6 years when we met, the previous 14 years were with my ex and what "we" did. She just told me "Don't worry about it. we will create our own "history" and that's what we will talk about. And that is what we did! Now you know why she is the teacher and I sling taping mud for a living! :D

Thank you.

I looked at your pics. Wowwwwezowwwa! You are one gorgeous chickie. You have such nice bone structure. I hate you (she says with jealousy and the utmost of admiration). You look good at any weight!

That said, I love my "chickie friends".

Congrats on all your work.

Gary, he blames his "aging" on the kids usually, not on me LOL.

I've always gone for younger men, usually by around 4 to 6 years. DH is 8 years younger than me. LOL My sister's husband is also 8 years younger than her though this has never been a pattern. Like Nelie, it would feel sort of weird with a guy my age or older. They're always more than a foot taller too..the boyfriends in the last decade (and DH) are all 6'3", which is sort of odd as I'm only 5'2".

Me, by 3 months, 12 days. ;)

He just LOVES to tell people he married an older woman, btw. No idea why. He likes to say the phrase for some reason - "older woman" - and seems to genuinely consider that a good thing. It always sounds like he's bragging on me rather than teasing, so I just smile and leave it alone. His previous relationship WAS with a very immature woman who caused a lot of grief and embarrassment - hmmm.

My husband is 4 years younger, and also likes to tease me about "robbing the cradle" to his friends. I tease back, saying that I was find "being" older as long as he continued to be the one who "looks older." He was 30 when I met him five years ago, but was already quite gray at the temples. He came home crushed one day, when a new "pretty young thang," coworker guessed his age at 50. I laughed so hard, I practically peed my pants.

My first dh was 2 1/2 years older than me. (He is 34, almost 35 in a few months)My present and forever more dh is 4 1/2 years younger than me! Wow!!! (He is 27, to be 28 in a few months. I am 32)

I had always wanted someone who was 2-3 years older than me but you know what? Age is just a number. My ex dh was so immature and irresponsible, trying to sadle me with EVERYTHING. He wanted me to go to work ft, go to college, take care of the house and our 5 kids and him too, while he came home off the road(driver long haul) and sat on his butt and figured out his next move. Ummm...no thanx! That was the straw that broke the camels back along with his increasing verbalk and physical abuse against me and the kids. He wanted a divorce cause I didn't want to do EVERYTHING. I left cause he was getting abusive.

Anyhow my dh is great. He had no kids previously and he traveled 1,000 miles to come get me and the kids and make sure we were safe. He took us home to Mt and court wise we had to come back, he came back with us and has been with me every step of the way thru the divorce, thru both my parents dying, thru our marriage last April and a miscarriage we had. :(

He has shown strength and warmth and caring and understanding and dignity thru all of this. He has also shown restraint. He has wanted to beat my ex up over all the stuff he has pulled so many times but he hasn't. Cause we agreed that wouldn't be good for the kids. And we want what is best for them, etc.

He also insist on me staying home so I can take care of him, the house and the kids and my health. It is such a difference and a blessing having a man who wants to support you and actually cares about your well being and puts your needs and feelings first. He is 7 years younger than my ex and 4 1/2 years younger than me, but he is more mature and responsible, loving and caring than my ex ever was. Dh is also a great dad to all of my kids. My ex never helped with anything even when he was home. If a baby (we had 5 over all the years) woke up in the middle of the nite? Tough luck! If he actually woke up it was only to tell me to get that kid to shut up and take them in the other room cause he was trying to sleep, etc.
My last one from the ex is 3 years now and 3 months. Joe has been around since she was 10 months old. If she wakes up, he will go get her himself and either fix the problem or bring her in here with us. He also is the one to tuck her in every nite. Etc, I could go on and on....basically he is a great hubby and dad. I am so blessed to have him.

It is not an age thing. It is a maturity thing.

My BF of almost 4 years is 4 years younger than me. He's the first relationship I've had with someone younger, I used to prefer older men - usually 3 - 10 years older than me.
