    Personally, I’ve never been in an age gap relationship but I’ve always admired the maturity that goes along with it. I think part of the fun in dating is curiosity and I can only imagine that having an age gap mixes things up – learning about someone from an entirely different generation and being mesmerised by their knowledge or way of living. Personally, I’ve never been in an age-gap relationship before but in terms of interaction, I have found it easier to speak with older men at times than men around my age. Similarly, I’ve found it easier to speak with younger men too. Curiosity creates attraction and given the right moment, I think something can happen.

    Funnily enough, I think curiosity works hand in hand with maturity.

      I’ve always found older men attractive, and I think it’s because of the benefits of age. Not to say that every older person is wiser or more knowledgable, but it’s nice being with someone who can teach you.

      It doesn’t always work. I once dated an older guy who kept trying to relive his youth. Let’s just say it didn’t work out!

    The success of a relationship depends on the extent to which partners share similar values, beliefs and goals about their relationship ; support each other in achieving personal goals ; foster relationship commitment, trust and intimacy ; and resolve problems in constructive ways. These factors have little do with age…in my opinion
    Nice perspective and loved the write up

      Thank you lovely! I agree – I think people look at the obvious and assume age-gaps mean different tastes in music and interests. But the main concerns for any couple is exactly as you described.

I would love to read your thoughts!
