Who cares if she is older than you. If you have genuine feelings for her, & she has reciprocated those feelings, then whats the problem? If you were 5 years older than her, would there still be a problem? 5 years is not a huge difference in age, my advice is to go for it. Unless of course there are other obstacles i.e husband, wife, other significant partner, then you would really need to discuss with this woman what you both should do. Good luck to you

If you love her, you have to fight for your love or feelings. Age for me is not a hindrance to any relationship and if you will let it go, you might not be able to find the same love! If you are very sure about your feelings, go for it!

Try this - when you see her next, try observing the chemical changes in you body. Where does it tingle.. How long it lasts.. What is it that you really like about her.

possibly not speaking in yoda-ese would be helpful. but if you like this woman.. speak to her, ask her out. so what if shes 5 years older than you.. im 11 years older than my husband. 5 years is nothing.

Its the 21st century!!! of course its okay. In fact its great. Means you're not a shallow person. YOu see beyond age and thats a good thing. My boyfriend is a year younger than me and he loves me. Its awesome that you do. And I think you should tell her how you feel. ANd please dont tell her the age thing is an issue because love transcends time.

Actually LOVE will always be there when both parties feel the same way they feel each other. Since she do not mind of your younger age compared to hers. why don't you take a step forward. Try it out whether both of you really are for each other. and...Love each other forever and ever. Although there will be time where both of you will wonder whether you have done the right choice but..there is alway no definite direction on LOVE RELATIONSHIP. Talk to each other about your own thinking more often so that the other party will also know what you are thinking about. Anyway, why don't you try and take a step forward. Maybe it turns out to be what you are looking for.

Why do you care to bother about the age? If you love her and she loves you...what's the problem? A relationship is not dependent on age but on how each other takes care of the relationship. Maturity is not quantified in age. Some maybe younger but acts matured and responsible while others are already old but still childish and immature. Focus on the relationship and not the age and besides...a five year gap is not a big difference.

Who cares about age. My boyfriend is 16 year 8 months and 23 days older than me. I was 24 and he was 40 when we got together and this is 8 years later. Go for it.

Hi there schummi! If you love her and you won't hurt anybody if ever you two get into a relationship, then I don't see any reason why you shouldn't. Maybe you should talk with her about how you two feel for each other and decide with her. I don't think that 5 years really matter or if age really matters at all. If you're willing to make it work, and you really love the person, then don't deprive both of you of the chance to love and be loved.

It depends on how old you are. For example, a 30 year old and a 35 year old is no big deal. However, if you're 14 and she's 19, that might be a big deal. If you're very young, a relationship with you could get her into trouble. Also, if you're very young, you too might not have much in common.

I believe that five years your junior is a proper age to be intimate with someone. A relationship is not measured merely by years difference but also by compatibility. Good Luck.

well.....as long as two adults are well aware of what they are doing ...i dont think there will be a problem ....but you too should be very clear of this fact....
