How does it feel when you fall in love with a guy several years younger than you?It seems that a woman should be married with a man the same age or older traditionally.What's your opinion?

I had a relationship with a guy 3 yrs younger than me. Well first off he lied about his age then I noticed that he was acting kind of immature and super jealous all the time. When he told me his real age I was like oh no! He said age doesn't matter so I felt like ok I could give it a try. He was 20 and I was 23. There was a lot of problems in our relationship which lasted for about a year and eventually I left him without formally breaking it off cause he wouldn't back off. He was kind of like stalking me already...following me wherever I go and calling me so many times a day. He was sooo annoying and it was pretty scary too. Anyways that was yrs ago. I'm happily married now with a man 6 yrs my senior. I think it's ok to be in a relationship with someone younger than you as long as the guy doesn't act like a baby.

Hello,thanks for your reply.It's good to know that you have a deeper friendship now.I think the problem that he fooled around is exactly what I'm worrying about.And I fear that our thoughts are not in the same level.And the condemnations from our families may drive me crazy if we go steady.

Hello I dont think it should be an issue unless you both are not on the same page . If one is too young there might be a mature factor and someone might get hurt or want more . for the most part i think it is fine and with any age you can find what you are looking for . The youngest I ever had in my life was by 5 years and we are more like friends now anyways. But i could of seen myself with him back in the day .

Hello,thanks for your reply.For my part,I think I may fall in love with a younger guy but I'm not likely to marry him because I believe our romantic relationship will not last long.Once we break up,our relation may be changed into friends or even strangers,which I can't bear.And no matter how mature he is,I have no sense of security and our thoughts may not in the same level to some extent.But I think the feeling is good when you are in love each other,you may feel younger.
