Hi everybody. Im knew here and I would like to hear what you think. I have met a guy, but he is elder than me for 10 years. I feel confused a little, but I really like him and I feel, that he likes me too. Have anybody had an experience in such kind of relationships? Which difficulties will we face up in the future?

Hi Melissa, welcome to ST.

How the age difference will impact your relationship depends a lot on how old you both are. A ten year age difference is a whole lot more significant when one is 15 and the other is 25, than it would be between two people who are 25 and 35.

It'll also depend a lot on where you are both at in life (how your living situation is, whether you're in college or working, etc).

Can you fill us in on some more of your situation, so we can help you figure out how to navigate this relationship?
