Sure, dating someone younger than you can be a fun experience and a real adventure, but like every other relationship, it means tons of issues. Romanian-Canadian artist Cassandra Calin is familiar with this only too well, and she made sure to do a new comic series to which anyone who has a few years on their partner can relate.
“I hear from lots of people looking for love, unsuccessfully, that they’ve got a restrictive list of ‘filters’, including age,” relationship expert April Masini told Fox News.
“When you open your age range filter by including younger people among your possibilities, you’ve got a whole new group of folks to date.”
Many celebrity couples function despite a significant age gap between the partners, like for example, Beyonce and Jay Z have 12 years between them, George and Amal Clooney were born 17 years apart, Jennifer Lopez and uh, wait, who is she dating now?
However, the truth here is that if other people can’t be supportive of your relationship, you don’t need them. As long as you’re happy with the person you’ve chosen, you’re on the right track, no matter what their ID says.
Keep scrolling to see five of Cassandra Calin’s most fascinating illustrations conveying truths about dating someone younger, compiled by Bored Panda.
