Younger participants may bring vigor, vitality, and fresh perspectives while older participants may bring experience, understanding, and stability.Older participants may impart reassurance and guidance to younger participants, and the younger participants may provide the older participants with help getting out of a rut and a feeling of renewal. If you do pursue this relationship, make the most of the advantages and prepare for the disadvantages. Be forewarned that you're going to get some judgmental, jealous, and envious people wagging their fingers at you. These relationships are often entered into by someone who has one or more children.

Stereotypical assumptions, expressed as though they are automatically negative, are made about both the younger and older people involved in such relationships.

The older person, depending on age/gender, is often said to be: While the gossips and finger-waggers might see each of those as pejorative, the people in the relationships might not see all of those as bad. That goes for many relationships between people close in age. There’s nothing wrong with an older person looking for a sexual partner with more energy and tighter skin, or a younger person looking for a sexual partner with more competence and confidence.

He or she still has much personal growth ahead of them and what they want could change more easily than what you want (especially in terms of getting married, having children, and long-term goals) making you no longer compatible.

He or she make think they can be happy with an aging partner, but they’re less likely to truly understand that really means than someone your age or older than you. You shouldn’t assume the younger person knows as much as you do, will relate to in-your-lifetime history like you do, or will get your cultural references. As with any other relation that is subject to stigma and discrimination (casual, interracial, international, interfaith, gay/lesbian, polyamorous, open, consanguinamorous, D/s, etc.) intergenerational relationships shouldn’t be dismissed or discriminated against just because they aren’t what someone else sees as ideal.

Also, many of the same criticisms can be credibly applied to relationships between people of the same age.
