In a Gay Relationship, What Age Difference Is Ok?

When you meet a man you like, don’t let society define your life and what’s within your comfort zone

Dear Max,

I’ve been presented a chance to get to know another man that is really interesting, however, there are a couple of dilemmas:

1) He’s 8 years older than me.

2) We work together.

I’m interested in him because we are studying to earn the same degree. We both have been flirting with each other, and I’m pretty sure the rest of the staff knows how interested I am in him.

BUT the problem is, he is open and I’m not.

So the real question(s) are: should I really worry about the age difference, working together, and the whole in/out of the closet?

Dear Confused,

Eight years age difference is really not that much. It is all about you and your life, so it is really up to your ideas and comfort zone.

Working together may be a problem in some places as some companies do not want this to happen. Find out if your company rules restrict you and what you want to do about it.

Finally, if you are not out, that could be a problem. When you have a relationship, you want all your friends and co-workers to know about it.

So you either hide and pretend you are straight or come out and face reality.

Remember, it is your life and your job. You are the only person who can answer all these questions.

Be true to yourself and listen to your gut feeling.

Good luck!

  1. WHEN PROFESSIONALLY CONSULTED BY A CLIENT WHO WAS 24 YEARS OLD, I IMMEDIATELY FELT ATTRACTED TO HIM. I TOLD HIM i COULD NOT TREAT HIM BECAUSE OF THE FEELINGS I
    HAD FOR HIM. He is STRAIGHT AND i AM GAY. I LEVELED COMPLETELY WITH HIM. Well over A YEAR LATER WE ARE STILL HAPPILY TOGETHER. MY AGE and my sexual orientation SEEM TO BE IMMATERIAL TO HIM – I AM 75 years old! (And No! I am not wealthy, nor would I be of any use to him in his career).

    • age has nothing to do with love so if you love him don’t worry about age it’s just a number
      take care and love your partner.
