    Default Age gaps (when the girl is older)

    Absolutely. I think what scares me most is that he's still a teenager and well I'm closer to 30...

    Default Age gaps (when the girl is older)

    I think if it works for YOU then go for it. It really depends on the couple. My dp is 3 years older than me and that's the smallest gap I've ever done. The rest of my parters/flings have been 10+ years older.

    The only problem I can see is that if you want to think about having a family in your late 20s he will only be early 20s and might not be ready. You might need to wait for him to catch up.

    Do what makes you happy.

    All good Well the age of consent here in Tas is actually 17, I think it's 16 nearly everywhere else in the country. This guy is 19 though.

    ETA: I definitely wouldn't go near a guy who was under 18.

    My hubby almost didn't date me because of our age difference... I was persistent (and hot) lol and finally gave in and thank god he did because we have been together for almost 11 years and have two gorgeous kids together and now that we are older no one even asks our ages etc...

    When I say consenting I mean 18 even though I think 16 is legal there is just no way that would feel right.

    All of my boyfriends have been younger than me, except when I was a teenager - THAT would have been weird. I like toyboys

    DD's dad is 3 years younger than me. His last two girlfriends were even a few years older than me.
