    I have been dating younger boys my entire life

    and never felt bad about it, but my girl mates always use it against me, to make me feel as if I was a laughing stock and it is honestly pathetic, but then I think about it and wonder why haven't I met an older guy who would want to be with me. Wrong timing?

    I would say it depends on the person.

    When I was 22 I was in a long term relationship with a 44 year old. She was young at heart and she loved to snuggle, which is how she won me over. I knew she was interested but I was not. every one from work was hanging out at a bar and she snuggled up against my back wrapping...

    So after reading some of these posts

    and asking about relationship between underage teens and adults. People are like 'well I know a guy who was 33 and met/dated his partner when she was 15' 'a women met her husband when she was 13 and he was 27', etc. Since you think it's okay for an underaged girl to date a man...

    What I think should matter is their personality.

    The amount of years someone has been alive has nothing to do with anything. Someone could be old and immature, while someone could be young and mature. Pretty much every culture in the history of the world practiced relationships with massive age gaps, it's only our culture...

    Like justice, I believe love is blind.

    It takes no account of age, sex or race, and I believe it shouldn't. Yes, in the main people choose a partner from their own kind but it isn't like this for everyone, nor should it be! People are people, men are men, women are women, love is love and sex is sex! Age is relative...

    My parents have a 17 year age gap.

    They eloped days after my mama turned 18 because she was pregnant with me.... People said they would never make it but guess what? Today is their 20 year wedding anniversary! Happy Anniversary Mama and Daddy!!!

    I think in some cases it does

    10yeargap.com focuses on younger women dating

    older men and it encourages age gap marriage. 10YearGap.com is not a sugar daddy site. Single women are attracted to older single men as they are polite, respectful, generous, kind, intelligent, sensitive, caring, affectionate, and understanding. Many younger women would like to...

    Why is it even such a big deal?

    I get that some people think it's wrong, disgusting, or that the girl is getting used, but that doesn't apply to all situations. That's like putting someone in a certain category just based on their age. Younger girls aren't naive and older guys aren't always looking for sex. I...

    being older I don't understand

    why girls that are 15 or so automatically assume older guys that are interested in them are creeps or pervs. i don't advocate a 15 yo being with a 30+ guy but it doesn't make them a creep. it does take 2 to tango as they say. maybe I'm in the minority but I do enjoy younger...

    When it comes to making an emotional connection,

    it's the soul that starts speaking first. I feel most connected to those over the age of 35 all the way up to 80 and beyond... That must be why I've been thought to have an "old soul" my entire life. My grandmother, a mere 77 years young, is my best friend in the world. And...

    and my boyfriend is 21 and we're completely in love and happy with each other. Everyone picks on us about the age difference but in a couple years it won't be a big deal at all and hopefully the jokes die down

    Do you apply that to 13-15 year olds dating 18

    to 21 year olds? Otherwise would you want your 15 daughter dating a 30+ year old creep? How about 16 dating a 50 year old?

    unless it's like 12 and under with a ******* 20+ guy or girl. They're still a child. It's really ********** then. Thats my opinion tho~

    D is ten years older

    than I am, and yet he and I mess perfectly on every level. I do not believe it is about age, but the mental connection between two individuals. We are very happy together, and we are getting married in October and plan on starting a family right away.

    It’s probably not the popular opinion,

    but I think that age is completely irrelevant in a relationship. Of course there are exceptions to this (If you’re thinking about having a relationship with a 3 year old, you should speak to a therapist), but as long as someone is able to, of their own free will, able to...

    Love is love. If you feel an attraction to

    someone who is older than you, and it's not just for money or the boasting or even for sexual purposes, then it's love. If you can sit in a room with this person and just have mundane talks and enjoy one another's presence, then props to you. Age is simply a number, but love...
