I met him two months ago.I feel very happy when I talk with him.We made friends on a online dating site called www.agelesshookup.com I search it involuntary,I sign up free,then I met him.He's 42 years old,but I'm less than 22!We have 20 years age gap difference!I have not tell my parents my boyfriend is the same age with them!I don't sure they'll accept him...I feel so confused!I'm very grateful to the online dating web site.I think we're falling in love...A few of my friends don't think we will go to marry,because age gap relationship has more problems than same age dating.What should I do?

    I don't personally have an issue with it. But ask yourself if it's worth it in the end. You fall in love and all only to end up being his nanny. I guess it can benefit you if he has money that will all go to you in the end but your just getting started while he's getting ready to retire. There's a way bigger picture than just "falling in love" here.

    As long as both parties are adults I don't see a problem. The last girl I dated was 10 years younger than me. She was 21. Sure my sister gives me a hard time (lovingly) about the fact that I date younger women, but she doesn't really care and neither do my parents. You're both consenting adults, so I can't see an issue.

    Depends on the gap. I would not date a man more than 5 to 7 years older than me, EVER!!! But young girls have that 'daddy complex' to be wary of, I hope it wears off unless you are just another golddigger or you like changing diapers on 80 year old men!!!

    I'm 14 years older than my wife. We have been happily married for 13 years now. Be realistic and recognize that you will be married to an old man before your time. If you can accept that, then go for it.

    It can be good if he can take the lead, otherwise you may later on regret the relationship and feel as though you have to make all of the decisions. Find out where he stands financially, and how he manages money. That is very important to establish early on in a relationship, whether you want to believe it or not.

    Your happiness is important, but not at the expense of financial stress.

    There is nothing wrong with being in love, but try not to overlook where it will go.

    Boy, oh, boy. It seems like everybody in this world is looking for an excuse not to love and not to be happy... and more than that, to keep other people from being happy.

    Don't listen to these naysayers, SeekCougar. And don't second guess what your heart is telling you. You're an adult and so is he; your love is perfectly natural and right. These other people here can be miserable if they want, but you have a life to live, and a very special man to share it with.

    It's you choice!
    I, personally, believe that age is just a number. I've had friends who've dated guys about ten years older than them and it's not really a hassle. For my friends it caused problems because, while my friends' focus was on studies and hanging out, their focus was on work. But for you it shouldn't be much :)
    Just do what you believe to be right.

    I've always dated chicks younger than me(7-13 yrs).I am seeing one close to 10 yrs younger now.My mom and dad were 17 yrs apart and she loved him until he died at 87.I think it's up to you.You'll make most of the compromises.

    In my opinion if you love person it doesn't matter what age he is. Love is love. But it's your choice, not mine.

    There is something wrong with this man, he needs to find a woman that is in her mid to late thirties, not a girl that's just finding out how the world ticks. And you, find a young man around your age.
    Does this man have any teenage children? You won't win any Brownie points if he does.
    I also have a strong feeling, your parents will object.
    Before you go any further in this relationship, stop and think about your future.
    Have a nice day !

    If he is mature, successful, loving and can support you, even if you choose to work, then more power to you. Your parents will have to accept. If it's only chemistry, and he doesn't seem wise for his age(but more like an older kid) get over it and move on. Also, if not employed or working steady, only there for your young...(need I continue). Use your head.
