I Believe Age Difference Doesn't Matter

    It doesn't matter if there is real sexual,

    emotional, or physical attraction there. It just gets in the way and creates an unnecessary, albeit. psychological, barrier.

    Update: so we had a dinner in a Persian

    restaurant. Not a single second that I wasn't hooked by him. We keep on talking about weird things, stuff that other people wouldn't dare to talk about and that's what makes it interesting. I can talk to him without any limit. But the thing is... He was talking about what he...

    I'm really attracted to guys a little older

    than I am. I'm not really into guys my own age. I'm 17 and dating a guy in his early twenties wouldn't be a big deal to me, I actually prefer it.

    My bf is 39 and I am 22.

    We couldn't get along better. My family doesn't accept it and my mother cut me off and kicked me out.

    years older than me. It didn't matter to me and it didn't matter to them. We both got what we wanted. It seemed to matter to friends and family who thought they knew my mind better than I did, who decided I was being taken advantage of. It takes two to tango....and if you...

    I had a relationship with a woman

    Not the age difference is important to me.

    It´s a peaceful living together, a harmony and each other respecting and understanding what is important to me. I don´t care about age at all!

    Honestly it doesn't. I mean

    as long as it's consensual then it shouldn't. Heck a person the same age as me could be dating someone ten years older and it shouldn't matter.

    Seriously I find younger women

    so much more fun to hang out with them women my age. I know I'm gonna get attacked over this one. But if people can choose friends or partners based on looks, gender, race or height why couldn't I say I like young women. Let the insults begin. :P

    It doesn't matter. You can't help

    who you fall in love with. This is something that I know for a fact. Be with the person you love, don't let others discourage you. Obviously to be together properly, you both have to be of legal age though.

    I'm 23 and secretly mess around with a 60 year

    old man. He's very well built works out a lot tans too. I was shocked to learn he was 60 when I started flirting with him. But it didn't bother me it turned me on even more. He's always willing to please me. And so damn good at it. He's just as dirty as I am ;)

    No it does not mater.

    Why should it be? If you feel young you will date young, if you feel more mature than your age, you will like accompany of an older person. It is that simple.

    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...

    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...
