anonymous asked:

what do you think of jeff and annie's creepy factor? like she's 18 and he's 35 when they meet. sure annie is mature but i still find it a bit creepy :(

(Before I posted this, @celerylapel posted a reply to a very similar ask that she’d received. Our replies are similar as well, which I can only attribute to the fact that great minds think alike. ;) Her post is here, if you haven’t read it yet!)

Short answer: I don’t think their age difference is creepy at all. 

Much longer answer, because I have a lot of thoughts about this: Ages ago, I wrote about this in the tags of this gifset, partly inspired by some tags that @nyclove3 wrote:

Thank You’s and Reminders

First, I’d like to thank all of my followers for putting up with me since I joined Tumblr in November. I have got to be the most unorganized, foul-mouthed, TMI blogger out there (this is my safe place - hey, I have kids!). But I have a big heart and a goofy mind and want to share all of it with you!
