Age Gaps : What Do U Think?
 
# 1 : Tuesday 13-1-2009 @ 06:39
 
 
I was just looking at a website where gays and lesbians were telling their first gay experience or the age difference from their spouse. Anyway there is so much social stigma on homosexuals it seems to cause them to look for love in the strangest places. On the website there were examples like 18 year old with a 40 year old or 15yr old and 18yr old, 17yr old and 26yr old. I don’t mean to make anyone angry but why are homosexuals okay with such large age differences? I mean in a regular heterosexual relationship those age differences would be consider scandalous. It may be social stigma or something else anyway sorry I don’t mean to be mean. Can someone respond or help me understand?

sorry to burst your bubble honey but those age gaps are pretty common among 'regular' heterosexual couples as well. Have you never watched Trisha? As well as that, the homosexual community as with any minority population looking for a mate tend to cast a wider net. Also i hardly think 3 years is much of an age gap to be honest.

I think Maltese Cross should speak from his experience. I'm dabblin with the older fiddle meself. Age is nothing. However the boring old timey anecdotes can get tiresome.

I personally don't think age matters as long as both people are of legal age.

And I disagree with you saying that age gaps are more common in homosexual relationships. Not true at all...please provide your evidence to back it up.

but why are homosexuals okay with such large age differences?

Er, I'm sure not all gay people are OK with large age differences. While I may not care, someone else would. We're all different like.

I don't think its just gays and lesbians who have such big age gaps. I know loads of couples straight and gay who are one year apart and likewise ten years, twelve.

I myself am in a relationship with an age gap of a decade. I didn't actively set out to find a partner who was x amount of years older. You love who you love and thats that. But age gaps are definitely not specific to gay relationships.

I would agree with the OP that there seems to be wider age gaps between gay & lesbian couples but I don't have a problem with that.

Perhaps its because gay people are generally not going to start a family so they don't have to worry so much about finding a compatibly fertile partner or even bother thinking about relationships long term like most hetrosexual people do.

Oh read Will's whole post - he's dating a 36 year old.

I fall for people, not ages and I've fancied a wide range. There are some ages that are just too damn young - and similarly I'm not into someone who is over a generation older.

So long as it's legal, and nobody is forced into anything, and nothing is going on that damages either party, then it's groovy.
