    I don't believe it does

    because weight doesn't either so it's just a number so who cares

    I think in some cases it does

    and others it doesn't. It's based on the individuals.

    I was 22 when I met my husband at my cousin's

    wedding. He was 34. We dated and fell in love. I was 23 when I married him and he had just turned 36. He was 12 and a half years older then me and it never caused a problem in our life together. Jack was taken from me in a car crash last November just 3 days after my 34th...

    I'm falling for someone

    who is 29, and I am 15. He is the best person I've ever met and known, I don't think it's wrong. I'm rather mature for my age, and he treats me better than I've ever been before. We have conversations about poetry, or religion, or music, or just anything really. He always makes...

    When I was 16, I was approached by a 26 year

    old woman. I ended up falling madly in love with her. My parents found out and went ballistic! We slept together once when I was in college and parted ways due to miscommunication. We didn't speak for 15 years until about a year ago. We started talking and realized that we...

    I'm Sorry But I Love An Older Man

    I am 23 now and I am really attracted to a man in his mid 30s to his mid 40s. When I think about sleeping with a man in this age range it really fills me with so much excitement! I don't like to date people younger than that, and I will go older if he looks within this range, or...

    I believe age is just how long you've been in

    your container (body). But the soul remains the same. It's the soul you love not the container. Just my perspective

    I don't believe age matters

    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~

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I have dated men twice my age

    and had a great time. It could certainly be a factor in a long term relationship, but just to go out and have a good time, age itself is never a factor.

    Well, I posted here once

    when I first got this about my 62 year old boyfriend. There was a lot conflict about that. So I decided to keep everyone up to date and let them know; he dumped me for an older woman. He'd been seeing her for awhile now. It explains a lot. But anyway, yeah.

    I think age is a stupid number

    that does not say anything about a person's maturity, and I deeply dislike the association between beauty and youth, therefore age difference means nothing to me.
