I was 21 and he was 32 so 11 years. It wasn't incredibly official or long lasting and it was more about sex than anything really. I feel like much more of a difference [in age] would have been kind of weird but once someone is a mature adult it doesn't really matter anymore (and by "mature adult" I don't mean 18, I mean once someone has reached a point where they are making logical and informed decisions, supporting themselves, etc.).

Since August (after my divorce). I've known him for a few years though...always found him attractive, but never acted on it lol. When DH and I split, I ran into him one night while jogging and he asked if I wanted to run with him sometime...and that's how we started getting to know each other much better and started dating :)

We have a nice age gap on us. I met him and moved in with him when i was 17.
I'm 23 and he's 30 now. My dad wanted to kill him at first. My mom who i lived with approved and allowed me to leave home i was still in HS. lol now my dad worships the ground he walks on,because he's so good to me! :D

The biggest age difference was my ex-husband- 12 years.He was an emotional predator, though. It didn't work because he was an abusive a*****e, nothing to do with his age.
Current boyfriend is 9 years older. I get along pretty well with him unless he's being an immature assface (yes, I see the irony there).

12 years older than me , and he was definitely not for me. I don't think age matters once you enter your 20's, though. Especially after 25.
