What is anyone’s experience dating someone younger? I am finding that it’s slim pickings for guys in late 30’s/early 40’s— and I am now looking for long term and wanting to settle down and share the rest of my life with the right guy. There is a large dating pool of late 20s and early 30’s. I’ve generally in the past wanted to stay within a few years of age. Anyone have success longterm with a partner 8-12 years younger? What are benefits/ detriments? Thanks…

I’m 8 years older than my partner (together for 9 years). My view is that once you’re both over 30, the age difference isn’t an issue until the older half is ready to retire. Right now we don’t have that issue, but I will retire in a few years and he will still be working…which I anticipate will cause some friction as we both get used to that phase of my life. It’s actually probably good we won’t retire at the same time since that will allow me to figure out how to use my newfound free time. The other potential issue has to do with when to have children (if you want them). We met too late to go down that path, but I do have a friend who wanted kids but felt his (then) partner wasn’t ready (they’re getting married this weekend and I’m now certain there will be kids in the near future).

^Very good points. I have always thought I wanted and would meet someone my own age, but have found that I am limiting myself. Very happy for you all ❤️

I’m 18 years younger than my husband (I was 24, him 42) and we haven’t had issues 🤷‍♂️

^ good to hear!

I’m 27 and recently single. The majority of guys I’m going on dates with are between 35-40.

Ideally I’d want someone closer to my own age but then we typically don’t match on maturity levels (emotional, financial) and life goals.

My ex is over 40 and the big challenge for us was around integrating friend groups. We had enough in common to enjoy each other’s company but my friends are mostly young and single guys who like to go out every weekend while his friends were all partnered and settled. It kind of felt like I was splitting time between two different lives.

Good morning!

Still trying to figure out this whole Fishbowl thing, so here goes my first post.

I would love to get into provider credentialing, but all employers I've looked at want at least 3 years of experience. So, I'm looking at Provider Network Coordinator roles, because I'm finding some of those roles don't need AS MUCH experience. I'm a RHIT, and have been working in healthcare for nearly 10 years.

Any input on employers is appreciated!
