I think 19 is still a teen so that makes it weird to me. If they had that same age gap but the guy in mid 20s and the girl around 30 I would think nothing of it. A girl at work was 27 and her boyfriend 19, but they'd been together 2 years. It seemed odd to me, an adult being with a child. I feel the same way with the guy being older too. When one of them is so young it seems somewhat icky.

I don't think I'll be able to get over the age gap for a long term thing, he's already said he wants to be a couple And at the moment I'm not ready for that with anyone, no matter what their age. A bit of fun, yes, relationship probably not. So it looks like our expectations are already different, oh dear, how come I always get myself in these situations

That specific age gap I'd be a bit funny about, only because the male is still technically a teenager! Saying that, he could be mature for his age? I just personally wouldn't be able to get over the whole "being with a teenager" thing. I'd also imagine that there would be a huge difference in life stages.
I know that, as it was, I freaked out a bit when DF and I first started dating. He had only turned 20 about 6 months before then, and I was 23 with a 4 year old. It took me a little while to get over the age difference. I'd talk about "when I was a teenager"....and then he'd point out that he was a teenager not too long ago He still gives me hell for being 'old'!
That said, age IS just a number, as long as they are both consenting adults.

Age gaps (when the girl is older)
My brother is 29 and his fiancé 41. She makes him so happy and I couldn't imagine a more suited person for him. Age means nothing when you have so much in common.
Providing both parties are adults of course!
