    100% based on an individuals opinions. I've recently met a 38year old. I'm 26. He is the first man who I've connected with in a long time...but when his age came out, it took me off guard. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Am i attracted to him? yes. Does he treat me well? yes Will we date more? yes...but long term(if it went that way) Do i want to turn 30 when he is already 42? I dont know...do I want him to be 60 on a kids 18th bday? yikes...i don't know

    For some people it doesn't, for some people it does. I think it's important for me cause I don't want to have a relationship with an guy who's 50 years older than me.

    Depends... I don't think there is anything wrong with dating someone much older/younger than you, so long as it's legal. It's about the connection you have with each other and it's nobody's business to say otherwise. I knew a guy age 29 who was dating a 19 year old. They seemed to be a good match as far as maturity. ha!

    Definitely if we are talking about love, not so important in case of friendship... But yes, the age is so important when you are looking for someone special...

    If two mature adults (mentally, not necessarily physically) make each other happy, that's all that should really matter. If you base your love life on what everyone else thinks, your relationship's doomed. Maybe that's why everyone is so quick to get a divorce these days, the relationships are based on flawed image's rather than love.

    I think it all depends on the people involved. Personally, I don't see what I would have in common with someone extremely older or younger. It's the attraction thing. I'm not attracted to much older or younger men. But never having that happen in my life I cannot judge. And it doesn't mean I don't think it can happen and be good for others. So, it depends on the person.

    Everything within legality of course! A (good) relationship should be built on trust, equality, unconditional love and mutual respect, as I see it.

    No MY last boyfreind was 50. I was 24 at the time. I have NEVER had a problem with age different as long as were both adults why should it matter?. But OVIOUSLY I have found thats really just a bunch of BULLCRAP to some older guys. My last boyfreind had an AGE issue and I DONT know why. He told me all the time he didnt understand why a girl like me would go for an old guy like him. Saying he was "Luckiest man in the world' one minute then the next he would say 'HONESTLY I just CANT see a future with you" HE deffinatly had issues.I just looked the other way hoping he would get over it. The longer I was with him and he see'd I genuintly Cared about him. I thought maybe something would change in him. But nothing did. Oh well ALL I KNOW I have never cared one bit how old anyone is..it neer bothered me at all. When your in bed together, sharing the most intimate moments it all melts away

    For others, I don't care about age differences.
    For me however there will always be limitations. Especially at my current age.

    My spouse has over ten years on me. He seems to be getting crabbier by the day which is not good for my teenagers. His health is failing and I'm a little freaked out by it.

    He is also not liking that I am aging as well (really).

    He is still my very best friend and we are very close -- just some observations I didn't see when I was in my twenties and it was cool that he was older.

    It really depends on the age difference and the personalities of the two. Sure, the older one may have gone through some different advances in technology and entertainment, but I've found that a lot of younger people like a lot of the older technology and entertainment, too. At the same time, a lot of older people enjoy a lot of the newer stuff, also. So, it's all dependent on the individuals.

    But I think the younger party should be at least 16 (or perhaps a very mature 15 year old)...old enough to handle a potentially deadly weapon ( a car)...old enough to decide whom they date.

    Then again, even at sixteen, I'd find it weird for them to be dating someone over 23ish. I guess it really just depends on maturity, emotional stability and physical characteristics for if they can handle being in a relationship...no matter what age. Some legal adults aren't even cut out for a mature relationship.

    I had a 16 year old friend who dated someone who was 22. And they looked like they really wanted each other. (they have since split.)
  • LeAnn Garciat... 2011/02/01 03:57:46
    LeAnn
    Well, that's sad that they split up, but I think 16 is definitely old enough to be with a 22 year old. That just doesn't seem like a big difference in age for me.

    Yep. That was the reason why my last boyfreind broke up with me. he saw other 24yr olds who were WAY more mature then me..): I mean imaturity is an initual turn on for older guys but apparntly it doesnt last forever...He wanted someone more mature and I think he houghtI was a vvery mature 24 yr old..:/ I dont have my own car and I DO have a learning disability and i'm somwhat stll like I am 16 yrs old...but..): well..it just makes me sad.. some things I cant help. I like the stabilitiy of parents and well.. that is kinda what I want. MAYBE ONEDAY I will find somone like that will take care of me.... this past ea tho I think I have grown up ABIT!..;/ idk...I cant help but act like a brat when I'm around somone who could practically be my father for Gods sake. SO it might never change!...lol uhh its something I cant seem to get over. Ive tried!

    To some extent. I wouldn't say yes, but I wouldn't say no either. I say let people do what they like as far as who they're with in a relationship. I think it doesn't affect it all that much the older they get (aka, it seems like its more acceptable when there are two older people that are still a good few years apart than say, someone who is seventeen and someone who is twenty-seven.) I, personally, probably wouldn't date anyone who was more than three years older than me, but hey, to each their own.

    Age really is just a number, even though, I don't like huge age differences. Such as, a 14 year old girl with a 30 year old guy. O.o

    There was a 20 year age difference between my parents. Love sustained them for a while, but after a few years they just had nothing in common except us kids and a house. My mom wanted to be a party girl, and dad was getting a little old and slow for her kind of partying. They had completely different friends, wanted to vacation in different places. Had totally different ideas about raising kids. Eventually my mom and dad divorced, and my mom married a guy 3-years younger than she was. He became the great love of her life. So maybe age is more relevant than we think.
