I don't see the 36/22 as automatically creepy, although I have always been involved with older women (even now). That said, I can see the gap as being bridgeable. Just as an aside what about a 50/36 difference? Let me spell it out more clearly about my own preferences: young enough to be my daughter, probably not interested. Old enough to my granddaughter, not gonna happen. No trophy brides here, thank you.
