I would think he's your son. So 16-22 years. But I don't necessarily think he looks that much younger, maybe 12-14 years difference?

Well, sometimes how you look in real life is different than photos, but assuming you look like these pictures all the time, I would guess you were the same age or no more than 2-3 years different. I do think you look closer in age in the color photo than in the black-and-white one. Not sure if that's because of the color vs. B&W or if it's the pose or if's a difference in makeup/hair. Regardless, you are both very cute people & you look really happy.

In the black and white, I'd say maybe 10 years difference. The color photo... Just a few years.

Just to clarify - male would be early/mid 30's, and female possily late 30's...resulting in 5 or so age difference.

I'm terrible at this!
I vary between he could be your son (if you were a teen mom) to maybe you both just age very well!

I'm going with you are in your 40's and he is in his early 30's. He could pass for late 20's though, honestly. He looks like a lot of my daughter's friends.

You definitely look older than him though, and I don't mean that as an insult. You'll read on this board all the time about big age differences between couples. It works for some, others not so much. It seems particularly more challenging when the woman is older than the man.

I would guess about 10 years as well. I think he would be around 30 and you around 40.

It's so interesting to see the varying differences...

He's 31 and I'm 43. I would have NEVER EVER imagined dating someone that much younger...EVER (and especially since I have a 24 yr old) but dang, it's the BEST relationship I have ever had. He has been previously married with 2 little girls and has dated people his age and said it was ok for a week or so, but not for him. He actively pursued me and I actively ran...ha. I struggle sometimes only because he has a hobby that puts him in the spot light as a pro athlete of sorts so he has groupies...but honestly, everyday that matters less and less. I didn't know of him before we met and that was one of the biggest things he liked.

It's funny...he has a body to D I E for...and 80% of the time, I totally forget that it's mine for the taking. I find myself laughing about it all the time.

Anyways...thanks for playing along...someone this weekend asked me what the age difference was so I thought I'd asked. My kids joke lovingly about it but they all absolutely adore him (I have 3 ages 24-17, boy, girl, boy).

You go girl! My BFF is 38 and just got married last year to her 26 yo hubby. It took their families awhile to come around --probably because he was 21 when they started dating, but They are pretty darn good together and make each other happy which is all that matters.

Good for you! You two make a great couple! And since he already has kids, that makes it easier. I think sometimes when there is a big age difference, regardless of whether the man or woman is older, if the younger one wants kids and the older one already has kids, they could possibly run into issues. But since you both have kids, no issue there. Have fun!

I'd say 5 years; no way do you look 12 years older, especially in the color picture.

Here's the hahahaha part - I was the Sunday School teacher to one of his best friends when he was in High school...LOL Yeah, they all get a good laugh from that, but his friends have all taken to me and none of it feels weird at all.

We shall see where it goes... He bought me a ticket for Christmas to fly with him to meet all his family in February...soooo....

Until then...

I wouldn't have guessed that much of an age difference...you look very happy together. I'm prone to date guys younger than myself as well so I'm all for it!

BTW...laughed at the "cougar print" comment.

To me he looks like he is your son, so about 25 yrs.

Ah. I guessed right. I was going to say 12 yrs.

But that may be because I know a couple with that age difference. They are very, very happy! And you two look extremely happy too!

Lol, my neighbor who is 51 just introduced us to her younger husband. He's 29. A very stallion like 29 she says.

I say go for it and enjoy life to life to its fullest.

i didn't get to post before i saw the answer, but my guess was him 28, you 40, so 12 years difference.

but i also thought the guess that he could be your son was a possibility.

I would guess he is your son but that you were very young (15 - 18) when you had him.

I sense some attention whoring.

Taking and posting angled pictures in your bathroom mirror with your cellphone is kind of pathetic at your age. That tends to be the realm of 12 - 22 year old girls.

You can see your age in your decolletage. Start moisturizing.

male would be early/mid 30's, and female possily late 30's...resulting in 5 or so age difference.


This is exactly what I was going to say.

I definitely do NOT see a mother/son age difference! Just goes to show how difficult it is to guess ages.

He's 31 and I'm 43. I would have NEVER EVER imagined dating someone that much younger...EVER (and especially since I have a 24 yr old)


This is the same age my ds and his gf are/will be this year. Ds will be 31 next month and she will be 43 in June. She has 5 kids ranging in age from 13 to 23.

They have been happily together for 5 years this month

That's about what I was going to guess. Women get a look in their eyes as they get older - can't quite explain it, and it's not necessarily wrinkles or drooping. The only way I can try to explain it is that it is a look of maturity and knowledge.

My guess was going to be between 10-12 years, but I had you both pegged as a bit younger-him, maybe mid-late 20s and you, mid-late 30s. You both age well, apparently!

My husband is four years younger than I am. I tease him about it all the time (he was at home playing Mario Paint on his Super Nintendo when I was getting ready to graduate high school and applying to colleges, lol), but we are perfect for one another despite the age difference.

I was thinking 7 on the low end, 15 on the high end.

There's 5 years between DH and I and there are times when it looks 2 years or 10 years.

Before I saw your answer I was guessing 10 years give or or a few less. That was a toughie for me.


And the photos were tricky. In the B&W one there appeared to be a larger age difference than in the color pic.
