    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    He's 3 years older. For all intents and purposes I feel like we're the same age. I'm 31, he's 34. It's only when we talk about a song or movie or something from approximately 1996, and I'm like "I remember this! My friends mom drove us there" and he's like"yeah, I was in college".

    My current guy is a year older. I've dated guys of all ages, up to 15 years older. I went out with a couple guys nearly that much younger and really didn't care for it. I prefer someone within 5 years of my age.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    We're practically the same age. I'm 6 months older.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    My husband is 8 years younger than I am. When we met, he was 28 and I was 36. He was always mature for his age, and even in high school he dated girls that were older than he was. I look young for my age so we don't look mismatched!

    I was married to someone who is 12 years older than I am. It was somewhat problematic. Enough that I wouldn't do it again.

  • JosephineJosephine Posts: 14,175Registered Users
    9 months younger. I'm okay with a few years diff up or down. Anymore than that could be weird for me.
