Yup. My husband is six years older than me and gets jokes about "robbing the cradle" from his friends, so it's pretty much a guarantee that a bigger age gap will get those jokes too. Laugh it off, OP; not much else you can do about it.

I don't even know how this is an FML - it's basically the same as, "Today my friend called me a poopy-head after I went to the bathroom." Big friggin deal, get over it!

Depends on your age #104. If you're 16 and he's 18 that's a sizeable difference. If you were 32 and 30 noone would comment. Even 6 years is very little by that time...

Me and my boyfriend are just a year and 2 months apart and I get called cougar all the time. Mostly because he was still in high school when I started dating him and I'm in college. I think the perspective changes the older you get. It's more acceptable to be that 'far apart' when you are older but for example a 14 year old dating a 19 year old is considered wrong because of laws. I think the nickname is thrown around whenever.

YDI meaning "you deserve the jokes." I don't think there's a single thing wrong with what they're doing, but you can't complain when people make obvious jokes. It's just gonna happen.
