    But It Does.

    First, let's establish what "maturity" means. I am going to use the vernacular of the term, meaning "behaving in a manner expected of someone AT LEAST as old as the subject's age". Now, in our heads, let's build a matrix here. We have on the vertical axis how old the subject is...

    To me personally it doesn't matter to a certain point. I prefer older guys to date... But I don't want a guy who's older than my pa and gramps.

    I'm dying to email him and send him some naughty pics but he cut off all communication. He probably doesn't want to hear from me. And I'm scared of being rejected. This sucks!

    However, there is a limit. A 50yo man or woman dating a 18 yo man or woman is a little weird. But I wont say anything.

    I have only ever been attracted to women of a certain age, much older than me. It's natural for me, so the age difference clearly doesn't matter in my opinion.

    Especially when it comes to younger girls and older guys! girls are generally more mature than the guys of same age, so the age difference makes it a good balance!

    Age shouldn't matter but I will definitely say that it's very uncommon to see and 18 year old kissing on an 82 year old passionately. Expect to catch some eyes.

    I'm 11 years younger than my man. It's an age difference that will matter less with time, but it's a little awkward when we're 18/29 almost 19/30
