  • no i wouldnt say it was wrong. its only a years difference and age doesnt matter anyway. all that matters is that you are happy.
  • Not at all. My parents are 3yrs difference father being younger. So don't take what your friends say to serious. Over time age does not matter as much as how you two feel about each other.
  • ...your friends are dumb. it's a year difference. it doesn't matter one way or the other.
  • No it's not wrong, it's just a little less common. When I was a junior in high school (age 17) I started dating a sophomore (age 15). He wasn't old enough to drive for the first 2 months we dated - so I drove him around. It was fine with me. We ended up dating for just over a year, breaking up only after I graduated and was moving off to college. I had no issues with dating a younger guy. He ended up being a great boyfriend, and we had a lot of fun. Don't let age stand in the way of a great relationship.
  • i dont think its wrong, my boyfriend is a year younger than me, my best friends boyfriend is a year younger than her, even my dad is younger than my mom!
  • Its fine, nothing wrong with it at all, maybe your friends are jealous of you being happy, forget about what they say and have fun.
  • Don't worry about what your friends think of his age. If he's mature (or more so) for his age, then it's most likely a good match. But more important than his age is how he treats you... if he's good to you, then what's 1 year?
  • thanx yoo guys yoove really helped me
  • No way! I dated a girl for three and a half years that is a year older than I am. Don't let your friends get you down on things like that. =)
  • That's silly. Of course it is ok. Age doesn't mean squat when it comes to love. It's all about compatibility.
  • Don't worry about it. It's completely normal. Tell them a 27 year old said so.
  • It's not age, it's maturity. It depends on the boy, and it depends on the girl. My cousin married a girl 7 years older than he was. He was 23, she was 30. They are VERY happy and the age difference doesn't matter in the least.
  • ... a year or two is fine ... a decade or two is wrong ...
  • I married a man 3 years younger than me. SO, I'm going to say it is fine. As long as he treats you well and you have fun together, that's what matters.
  • No offense to you, but your friends are idiots. There's no rule stating that your boyfriend has to be a year older or younger. It's just something they made up in their mind, and think that's the way life works. Typically, boys mature slower than females, so generally speaking it happens that many women go for older men, typically because of that factor. But the only rules about age are legal ones that are about statutory rape. Your friends- don't know what they're talking about.
  • my boyfriend is a year younger than me also. the only thing that should matter is that you and him are happy. dont let others persuade you into thinking something different.
  • A one year age difference doesn't matter a jot once you're older than about 15. My wife's older than me, admittedly only by two months, but for years at her birthday I've been making it sound as though she's two years older than me - You're in your 40th year and I'm only 38. How you feel about each other is the only important factor.
  • no problem my wife's 37, i'm 32 and we're both happy. If you like each other, enjoy yourselves, people that have doubts about your age will see your happiness and understand it's not a problem.
  • im 13 all the gurls ive ever dated have been older than me no of course not its maturity and the way theyre willing to treat you.
  • there is deffently nothing wrong with having a boyfriend a year younget than you aslong as you both are happy thats all that matters
  • The only person it should matter to is yours. If it bothers you than don't date them. Your peers will tell you repeatedly what not to do and what to do. It is up to you to decide what is right.So you go against the flow, be a trendsetter and do what you want and not what your friends tell you to do.
  • hell no!!!! your freidnsare being silly
  • course its ok, age doesnt really matter if you love someone, as long as they are above legal age!. My hubby is 4 years younger than me, it doesnt make any difference.
  • Who are your friends to say anything?! My boyfriend is also a year younger than me and nobody says anything! Even if they did I'd tell them it is none of their business! How dumb do you think it would sound if you broke up with him because he is a year younger?! Don't listen to them, listen to your heart and mind!
  • I had a bf for 6 years that was 10 years younger than me. we had a good relationship.
  • I think its perfect. I dont think age defines a person, Expierence and maturity does ;)
  • The best thing you can do for yourself is stop listening to all those petty, nonsensical rules young people make up. It will immediately better your future. Age is not a problem at all. If you like someone younger than yourself -- especially just by a year -- then what's the harm? Do you guys have stuff in common? Do you enjoy each other's company? Do you get along well? Those are the important things to consider. Tell your friends to lay off and enjoy the time you spend with your boyfriend.
  • No of course not i know some guys that are younger and act more older then most grown guys do.... so don't even let that get to you because age is nothin but a number its about what people have in there hearts not how old they are or how they look :) ~GODBLESS~
  • No its not wrong. My husband is 2yrs younger then me and we have been together for 16yrs.
  • The "norm" is that girls date older boys, but it's completely up to your emotions. If you love him, it's okay. I wouldn't judge a girl if her boyfriend was younger.
  • i have exactly the same problem, i know it shouldn be an issue and it stupid but it still anoys me, also because my friends all have/have had boyfriends that are couple of years older and here i would be witha YOUNGER boyfriend...
  • Stop being a follower and do what you feel is right.
  • Age is just a number, it is the love that you feel for the person that counts. it doesn't matter what your friends say it is your life and you should live it to the best of your ability.
  • There is nothing wrong with having a boyfriend that is younger than you. If anyone gives you grief for that, than it's pathetic. If you understand eachother and have an in-depth closeness, than I see it as more of a jealousy issue with other people.
  • no bad in that. as long as he's legal! :-P i tend to date younger guys!
  • Exactly how old are u?? If its only a year then it really isn's a big deal! Is here a mature individual? Is he childish??? U'd be surprised how many people who are adults act like children and vice-versa!
  • NO WAY! My last boyfriend was younger than me an he was totally gorgeous! AND u dont have to worry about him rushing things. Its all good!
  • Well my hubby is almost 4 years younger than me... that shows what I think lol.
  • It's not the age it's the way they treat you...age ain't nothing but a number...you have to show that you are mature about your age.
  • Traditionally men are usually order than their women, but in today's times it is not a big thing, especially one year difference.
  • Yes...If you like him go for it...Don't worry about it...No, it is not wrong...
  • my boyfriend is too a year and half younger than me it is normal but rly sometimes i have some problems not always he understands me i dunno what about ur boyfriend but my doesnt get what i say sometimes?! and always when we quarrel i am always right and sometimes i look to him as a a child right now i have many problems wit him plz go to my profile and answer my question :'( thxx bye all
  • Age makes no difference in either direction. Only happiness is what counts.
  • I dont think 1 year matters at all. Its when the gap is about 60 years it becomes a bit strange...
  • lol tell them if they wanna be fuked around by a 25 year old guy so they can pretend like they are kwl tell them to go ahead a leave the good ones alone
  • No... There's NOTHING wrong with it. My parents are 76 and 74 (Mom's older than Dad - they are 21 months apart. Been married since 1953.) And, if you look into your ancestry, I would be willing to bet you will find MANY women older than a couple of years married to younger guys. Of COURSE there's NOTHING wrong.
  • yes its perfectly fine. i dated a guy that was a year younger and he was one of the best guys i have been with. age is only a number dont let age keep you from love.
  • One year is nothing. I had a husband one year younger than me. Now I have a boyfriend 9 years younger than me!
  • My boyfriend was 2 years younger and it didnt bother me at all... he was vry mature n even looked older than me. friends at sch use 2 laugh but didnt matter because i knew it wasnt a problem.... age doesnt matter, just how u feel counts x
  • lol of course its ok, no offense, but what would your friends know? if you had told them he was a year older than you they'd probably see nothing wrong with him. dw its just a common stereotype that the girl is younger than the man. Actually nowadays, its not very common to have the girl younger than the boy in a relationship. as an example: 12 of my friends have boy friends, 8 of these girls are older then their boys by a little less or a lot more than a year. so dw be happy lol
  • haven't your friends ever heard of ashton kutcher and demi moore?
  • If you're happy you shouldn't care what anyone else has to say about it.
  • I'm dating someone who's two years younger than me and we're happy =]
  • It sure is okay to have a boyfriend who is younger than you. Don't listen to what everyone says, be independent. If you like or even love someone who is a little younger than you, then go for it. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. Hope I helped. :)
  • My husband is 2 years younger. I always wanted someone about 10 years older like my Mum and Dad. However, despite my reluctance to date a younger man, I did and we have now been married 5 years next month. It really doesn't make any difference, it depends on your relationship not age.
  • I think its perfectly fine because my girlfriend is a year older than me and it doesn't seem to bother her
  • I'm two years older than my boyfriend and it's working better than any of the older guys I've dated. There is absolutly NOTHING wrong with it, unless you guys are not getting along because of maturity issues. But that can happen with an older guy too.
