I know it doesn't matter if my girlfriend is 9 years older. i'm 25 she's 34. We wonder though, what society thinks. We're in love, but we know our relationship is not normal. What do people think? I'm 25 but I look about 18. She's 34 and pretty much looks her age. We're also the best of friends though. What do people think when they see that? Is it strange? Or if you see a happy couple, who cares what they look like as individuals. We're very happy and we hold hands and hug and give each other pecks in public.
