Cool post over at Age Gap Relationships discusses six misconceptions about age gaps.

  1. But it’s like practically dating your father!
  2. She is just his trophy girl/wife.
  3. But you have nothing in common!
  4. The young woman is in it for the money.
  5. The older man is in it for the sex.
  6. The younger woman has ‘daddy issues.

It’s not that there aren’t problems. But these six are more reflexive than realistic objections.  (For instance no one says dating someone your own age is like dating your sister.  And what’s with the gendered clichés in #4 and #5?)

You can read her analysis for yourself.  But they’re probably things I’ll address frequently too.
