I mean, sure, there are some things that are different about dating someone who isn’t your age, but for the most part it’s really not that big of a deal. The most common reaction to the age difference is total shock, followed by the question “But how did you meet? Sometimes when you’re with him and all of his friends, you might feel a little out of place. You learn that people are rude enough to ask questions like, “But why would you date someone younger than you?

You missed our wild days and we're settled down now. We've learned a lot from our previous relationships.
It's not like a guy who's five years older than you is going to be taking you out for the Denny's early bird special ever day before promptly going to bed, but odds are those 5 a.m. We can still drink people under the table, we just don't want to do it at some crappy, crowded dive bar. We don't want to be shoving our way through a bunch of sweaty people to get them. You're going to hear stories about "the old days" and wonder why we aren't as fun anymore. All right, so no one knows what they want, but we've got a job, if not a career, and some money saved up, because we already did that thing where you spend all your money and then have no money.7.
People are attracted to whom they are attracted to and sometimes there is neither rhyme nor reason.
