Anonymous asked: Hi Tom! I am wondering if you have any input on my current situation. My boyfriend of 6 months is 22 years older than me (I'm 20 in a month). He's not got any "baggage" as such, we are intellectually very similar, I am friends with his friends as I work in his best friend's pub, my parents think he's a nice guy, he's got a good job, he's really supportive of everything I want to do and I know he wouldn't hurt me. Do you think that love etc. can outweigh the difficulties of an age gap that big?
You’re an adult, he’s an adult, if it’s working for both of you - and it sounds like it is! - then it’s working, period. It doesn’t really matter what the details are.
