Is a 15 year age gap embarrassing?Page 1 of 1    
I think that all depends on who the guy is and how his family/friends are. Me personally, if I ever had something going with a woman that much older than me and I really cared about her, Id make my family and friends understand or at least accept it. If hes going to see a relationship with you as embarassing, he shouldnt get into it in the first place. No bf/gf should ever feel like an embarassment to their significant other. Its just not right to me.

yes.

I once had a FWB situation with someone when there was a 15 year age gap and had to break it off. I can say without equivocation that it was really embarrassing.

Once, at a cousin's wedding, my family was seated together and one of my aunts walked in and my sister whispered "oh, look, Dave, your FWB made it!" and I was mortified.

And if a guy takes that kind of harassment from his family, you can imagine the kind of stuff I was getting from the gang...

Now I've been making every effort to keep any relationship within a 5 years age gap.

Not sure in your situation. But in my case, I date hot people. Age isn't a factor unless its under 18. Though I get turned down by older women when they find out how old I am.

But I think in that situation its because the woman doesn't want to look like a cradel robber.

At your ages, it's not embarassing. Provided that both people clearly understand the situation. Whether it's just being friends, a FWB / casual relationship, or a serious LTR. I think some people are too concerned about what others may think. That's why some men won't date a fat woman, some women won't date a shorter man, some people won't date an significantly older / younger person etc.

i wouldnt date someone who was 15 years older then me but im only 20 so that would be like dating someone my dads age. maybe as i got older age wouldnt matter so much. if your happy with this man then who cares about this age just go for it.
