About this deal

The ultimate Valentine's Day countdown - here are 10 romantic gestures to help sweep your partner off their feet! At other times, the intergenerational friendships that form can be powerfully healing for both older and younger.

Think of these differences as opportunities to really explore your partner’s viewpoint and to get to know them on a deeper, more fundamental level, rather than something that’s lacking. After a bunch of beers at the bar, we decide to move the drinking to my apartment, and everyone comes along, including Drunk Acquaintance.I’ve been kinda crushing on him, mostly because he’s the only new single guy I’ve been spending any significant time with.

Many old lesbians (some of whom are reclaiming the term, “old,” while others prefer the softer-sounding “older”) know ourselves better than ever before. According to one dataset, 18% of people in female same-sex relationships (to use the authors’ language around gender) have an age gap between partners of ten or more years, compared to 4% of people in female-male relationships. But unfortunately, not everyone seems to agree with Julia's viewpoint, as the couple have faced plenty of criticism from online trolls. Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne are both comedians so they probably make each other laugh a whole lot.Robin, 54 and Madonna, 61, are fascinating to listen to because their experiences are so different from the experiences of modern young queer people. Plus, sexy age-gap couples like Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor (32-year gap), Rachel Maddow and Susan Mikula (14-year gap), and Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne (13-year gap) keep lesbian May-December relationships in the spotlight. Let your friends, family, and girlfriend get used to each other over the course of life milestones and holiday gatherings.

Nowdays, at least here in the US, late 20s/early 30s, is when women really start hitting their stride, professionally, financially, emotionally, etc. Women who like younger are into looks in a more superficial way and are probably emotionally immature in some way. I've always loved talking to older queer women in general just because their experiences are often so different from how things are today in terms of how far the world has come with acceptance and visibility, so the new video from BuzzFeed is right up my alley.

Especially when one partner is much further along their life path, it can be tempting to wish you had met when you were both younger or that you were closer in age. At the same time, the knowledge that life is short and fleeting, that there are many more years behind than ahead of us, fills many of us with a sense of urgency.
