    Default Does age matter?

    I feel like I'm crazy because I've been hearing alot of "age doesn't matter as long as you love eachother" and some fairytale stuff like that. It drives me nuts. I'm not talking about a 1-5 year difference, I'm talking about a 13 year difference. For example (a real example), a 17 year old going after a 30 year old.

    It hink age definitely matters especially if one partner is underage. But as one reaches adulthood, the gap increases a little more.

    What do you guys think?

    I agree with you. Age matters a lot more than people like to admit.

    But I think the difference in age is more negligible as people grow older. Its harder to tell the difference between a 60 and 67 year old than a 20 and 27 year old.

    I reckon if you're about 38 and the other person's like... 48 it's actually bordering on fine.
    It just when it goes above the 12-13year age difference when things get a little complicated.
    If they're in their teens... ew.
    A 16 year old dating a 27 year old is just plain disgusting.

    it is starting to be a problem when your girlfriend/boyfriend could be your mother/father O.o though the older the persons are, the bigger the gap can be without being "too much"...
    In the case of someone 17 year old with another aged 30, it is a BIG difference, and i doubt it would work well, even though there are always exceptions :P

    Age does matter, some things are really... ugh. Like Anna Nicole Smith and her really old husband J. Howard Marshall. She actually said: "I'm sick of being accused of gold-digging. It just so happens I get turned on by liver spots."

    But that is a little extreme. A few years is normal, if one isn't underage. 13 years is just on the edge, 40-53... I don't know. 17-30 is definitely wrong.

    Age does matter, when you get old, your partner is still lot younger than you, then problem will arise I assume in mentality/psychological balance and as well as in physical needs but again (the cliche motto) it doesn't really matter if you really love each other

    it is complicated when the partner is a little bit too young, but as s/he gets ...say older than 22, that difference is not much of a big deal.

    now the question, which one is more disgusting? having a lot younger boyfriend or a lot younger girlfriend?

    Take a percentage, youngest age divided by oldest age, multiplied by 100. At a rough guess, I'd say anything less than 80% is wrong.

    At young ages I would feel uncomfortable with that kind of gap. It apparently lessens as you get older though. My parents are 13 years apart...

    Age matters because society tells you age matters. Society labels pedophilia as one of the worst things in the world, ignoring the maturity of the persons involved. If you're 17 and you want to be intimate with a 30 year old thats you're decision, but be prepared to face the consequences of a society that will tell you you're wrong and you don't know what you're doing.

    The difference in age can lead to complications in a relationship, so I'd try to make the difference as low as possible (unless your into the whole older guy/girl thing), because things like personal interests, physical capabilities, etc all get thrown up in the air when you associate yourself with someone older or younger.

    Just be careful p00 and all I can recommend is you seriously mind your surroundings.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
