A few years ago I dated a 35 year old woman (I’m Hetero), I was 53 at the time. As I had never dated a woman so many years my junior previously, I thought age doesn’t matter as long as the two people dig each other. I was wrong (in my case).
She desperatetly wanted to have a child, and at 53 y/o, I didn’t want to be raising children… You have to be careful of conflicting interests.
Her friends were not very accepting of me and that made me feel very uncomfortable.
As Amanda mentioned, your interests/ambitions may not be on the same page… or even in the same book for that matter.
I’m not saying your relationship with a person 21 years your senior wouldn’t work out for you…. however keep in mind that an ‘age difference’, does matter!!! In my opinion anyways….
Be careful… don’t get hurt.
