In order to properly subtract a date, you should use either:

This is a new function designed to do exactly what you want to do. However it is only available in MySQL 5.0.

2. UNIX_TIMESTAMP(newdate) - UNIX_TIMESTAMP(olddate)
This will return the difference in seconds between two different datetimes. It should work in mos versions of MySQL, as the function has been around for a while.
