No, not at all. One of my dearest friends is nearly twice my age.

No! When my mom was 18, one of her closest friends was a 78 year old man. o:

I just think its harder to create a place for that kind of relationship - than let's say - school, clubs, etc. - because you're all close in age.
I don't think so, though. I have a good friend whose a good couple of decades older than me.

I don't think so. I'm 17 and I have friends who are 36. Also, it's a plus because they're older and in most cases, wiser. They can do what parents can do for you without the awkwardness of talking about it with them.

No. Even after your and their death the memories live on somewhere within someone.

My best friend is almost almost 11 years older than me.

I do think its harder for friends with big age gaps though. But its not impossible or even that uncommon for friends to have large age gaps.
In my situation its difficult because in my field of work most of the people or so much older than me and we have nothing in-common, but I know if they knew more about me and my interests are that I had friend who was 17 they'd frown upon it and talk behind my back about me being strange. Its hard not being able to be your-self at work.

Prime example is what you wear and how you look I hate having to conform to society but I know if I didn't where some nice khaki slacks suit jacket I would find or keep a job. It's different when your a teenager though. Its the perfect time to explorer and do whatever you want because when your older you can't always do that and be successful. I don't understand why some parents get so upset about kids dying their hair and doing cosplay.

I don't think it matters if the two people have things in common and like to be around each other.

In love...sort of.

In friendship, no.

I would use anime as a reference, but I don't want to sound like that kind of guy...

My rule of thumb... If you are under 16 then yeah, age plays a bit of a part (Only family friends and relatives over 20) :D. Other than that tis fair game.
