About This Quiz

Most couples are pretty close to the same age. It just makes sense when you think about it. Both people have the same common experiences, so it makes them more compatible. They went to school at the same time, have the same pop culture references around things like music, movies and TV shows. They probably have very similar tastes in clothes and fashion. They may have the same goals around family and having children. It's just simple that way.

Others like to push the envelope a little bit and go out with someone with a 10-year age difference, while others go all the way and hang out with someone 20 years apart. There isn't anything wrong with these people; they just have a different vibe. Lots of time the younger partner is bored with people their own age as they want someone a little more intelligent, sophisticated and interesting than what they've been finding in their age group. And of course, the older of the pair gets some serious cred. 

When it all comes down to it, there is no right or wrong age difference. People just like what they like, and that's totally fine, no matter what the age difference is. Of course, being mistaken for parent and child is always a bit of a drag.

Take this quiz, and we'll guess you and your partner's age difference.
