Re: [CHAT]: Relationships with age gaps

Oh that was sort of in response to people disapproving.. I don’t really think it’s anyone else’s business what two people do unless the below is occurring (underage, lack of capacity to make decision, manipulation etc).

What are some ways we can cope with the negative aspects of a relationship with an age gap?

Re: [CHAT]: Relationships with age gaps

Hmm so something i have been thinking of here is the concept of consent, what does that mean? Is there a difference to consent in relationships with age gaps?

Re: [CHAT]: Relationships with age gaps

And I'm going to answer my own question here Smiley Tongue There's definitely a difference to consent, you have to be extra careful to make sure that both people in the relationship know what it means. 

Here's the tea video again to explain it Smiley Tongue

Re: [CHAT]: Relationships with age gaps

I love the tea consent video!

I feel like a discussion about it would be the best thing. Even asking if a person is okay with certain things beforehand.

Re: [CHAT]: Relationships with age gaps

And it's possible the person might be less experienced than you with intimacy stuff too, so it's super important to be heaps respectful of that!

Re: [CHAT]: Relationships with age gaps

I think openness in a relationship like that is really important in general as well.
