If the line "He was older than her, she was beautiful," recalls only your passport details with the guy, you obviously care about the age difference. But if you have real feelings, age can not be a barrier to a relationship. Or can it?
He's older than you
What to do? Understand yourself. Have you noticed the problem on purpose. The age difference - it's not only numbers, but also a different world view and understanding of life. You like to debate with more intelligent companions than peers, and society past and did tiring - not surprisingly, in the second half as you choose an adult.
The only question is - how adult. Of course, public opinion - no manual of your personal life, but for a couple of 14-year-old girl and a 25-year old boy disapproving look on purpose. Sometimes to the life experiences of others worth listening to. And even better - listen to yourself. If you do not see obstacles in the form of 3-5 years difference - not cheat yourself and quietly develop your relationship.
And what about the examples in 10 years difference? Perhaps the universal love in this case is so rare that your sole option you'd have noticed. And while you are in the category "children up to 18" from such a relationship is better to abstain. I do not need to remember about the parents friends, the age difference between them - 14 years. The older you get, the less felt age limits. But while it is - is not the case.
You're older than he
In the very back of your mind says that the guy should be older, stronger, higher than girls. To save her from the evil forces of street thugs and everyday difficulties. But life is changing, girls become more independent and need for classical princes eliminated. If you really love him, whether to follow the standards?
If your relationship age difference is noticeable from the outside - it does not matter, the odds in his or your side - get ready to take a defensive position. How would all right inside any pair surrounding haste to attack you advice, commentary and outright criticism. But you have already decided that all right?
Do not try to convince everyone that you are made for each other, but from the outside it is difficult to see. Better to just ignore the attacks are not the closest of friends. Your environment is a constant, if you really appreciate it, should take the situation for what it is. If they do not work right away - do not rush to take offense. To get to know the company with her boyfriend.
Parents - a special category. They should worry about you all the moral and state law. So try to understand them correctly. ;) Speaking on the topic of age depends on your relationship with the parents. If they have always been trustworthy, hardly any differences.
But if the next of kin - fans Domostroi and childhood too watch over you, to convince them will be difficult. Remember that parents are the most important thing is your safety. Both physical and moral. Likely to occur because of the differences big boy. Hastened to assure that he is in no hurry to get you into bed, and instill some historical notions about life. The output is the same as with friends - meeting the parents with a guy.
Do not forget that true love does not hurt any difference in age, nor public opinion. If these obstacles ruin your relationship can, in and would not make sense?
