8 years is nothing.
maturity gap is everything.

You are right it all depends, how you take it. I was with a beautiful person once and our age gap was 19 years. Relation was beautiful but could not lost because of the awareness about age. We both did not handle it right. Its in your hand.

Man if you want the woman go get her. the best thing you can show any person man or woman... is genuine interest. Age gap means nothing. Do what men do.. go get the woman if u want her.

My exwife is 7 years older than I am. I married her when I was 25, to my deepest regret. If I had known then what I know now... Run!

Age doesn't matter in dating. Now living together is something different entirely. But a gap in dating is no big deal as long as you two like each other and simply want to try it out.

youll be sleeping with a 50 yr old opposed to 35. questions the mind of this descision i do.


I hope you're not losing any sleep over it

Can't say that I would be interested in sleeping with a 50 yr old when I'm 35 or even someone in their 40s for that matter, (cross that bridge when I get there) but it's no hair off my butt if others do

We should all do what makes us happy ~ not what makes others happy

It's hilarious how all the cougars on this thread are like, "Do it, go for it, age is just a number" while most of the guys are like "hit it and quit it".

8 years is not much/ Sure it's okay. It wouldn't work for me now but at 24 sure. My problem would be staying with that gap for the long haul.

ninjaeleven:
why wouldn't it work for you now or for the long haul...sociologists actually say that it's better for the woman to be older than the man by about seven years as their life spans will coincide better as they age in terms of longevity. unless you're implying the woman would be too "old" for a youngin that's all of EIGHT WHOLE YEARS less than her.
do I detect sexism???

I refuse to date a woman who's more than 40 yrs younger than me. It wouldn't be legal and, gosh darnit, it just wouldn't feel right. How's that for moral?

Hell, at 21 I was living with a 30 yr. old. My wife was almost 6 years older than me. Go where you wish to go with eyes open, Grasshopper, and drink of the nectar there.

You're both adults... so you should both be able to decide for yourselves whether an 8-year age gap is too big for you.

Really? So when you're 60 you think all the 37 year old women are going to be lining up? Or, when you're 70, and she's 42, (half your age plus seven) she'll be really hot for you.
Let me get this straight: woman EIGHT years older than a dude, not so great...But! A woman should be jumping at the change to go out with a guy 20 plus years older than her!
