Here are some tips on significant age differences in relationships!
They say that love has no age, and this idea is increasingly used nowadays. We’re in the century of speed, where gender, religion, colour and age are no longer considered. We’ll talk a bit about the psychological side of things, and I’ll give you my own opinion in the context of this situation. I was involved in a relationship where the age difference was over 17 years, which is why I feel responsible for speaking out for people in my situation and those who want to understand whether or not significant age differences cause problems.
Problems that arise with significant age differences in couples
While it may not seem like the biggest problem in the world, it can manifest itself quite drastically. It’s difficult for your partner to want entirely different things from you. We’ll take a simple example: you want to go to the club, and he wants to stay home and watch the game. Yes, this may happen once, and one of you may compromise, but over time, these habits will create frustration in each partner’s life.
Energy takes into account several factors, such as lifestyle or diet, so it’s not necessarily the case that an older person is much less energetic than a younger person. However, younger people are more curious and want to experience the beauty of life. Moreover, people who crave adventure wish to have someone they can share the moment with, and a man much older than you won’t be able to. The most he will remember is the time when he enjoyed the same things that make you happy now.
The critical eye
Although we don’t care what people say around us, somewhere in our subconscious, we are affected by people’s opinions or suggestions. So, when you get more urgings to break up with your life partner because you deserve something “better”, “younger”, or “fresher”, these things might create inner frustration. Even if you ignore or deny them, they are there. They will give you problems both in your relationship and with yourself.
