No it shouldn't. One of my best friends is over a decade older and to be honest, they've been a great source of advice on a number of real life matters.

Not really. I think it boils down to mental maturity, and your interests. I have friends who are 10-15 years older than me, but we're good friends because we are interested in the same things. There can be problems though, such as not being able to do certain things due to your age that they may be able to do, plus there are instances where people are weirded out by having friends younger than them.

I'm not 100% sure you're trying to be funny, but you're funny.

i think when you're young as 13-16 yes there is an issue with it as maturity is on way two different levels and why would an adult / young adult want a friend thats only 13 or 16? 18 and 16 is alright but 20 and 16.. not really. when your mature and understand much more of life thats when i believe age doesnt matter when it comes to friends. real friends that is tho. not saying you cant be friends with a child as an adult because of age because it may just simply be like that person is a niece or nephew.

Something like i just said i really wouldnt know or understand at 13, ik because i didnt. but now i'm 18 and have friends who are in their teen years like me, also ones that are in their 20s. i dont see a problem with it because i understand what they go through and same back around. sounds little crazy but when your a young mama and been tryna raise a child and get out on your own.. you start to mature past your average age.

Not at all! I have one friend who is in her 30's, and I think she's the oldest friend I have! But that doesn't mean anything. I would still talk to her, no matter her age c: And I think to most of my friends (online ones) I am probably one of their youngest friends. But it doesn't matter to them, they still talk to me.
Honestly, its based on a bond that is shared between you and that person. I don't think it matters with age, because if it did, you wouldn't be friends at all. Once that bond becomes strong, maturity and stuff doesn't matter (as long as you are mature tho (that didn't make sense but..))- I mean, just as long as you understand things that they do at their age.

If a 50 year old tried to befriend a 14 year old then that would seem wrong to most people and therefore age does matter in friendship.

Age only matters in terms of law. It has absolutely no meaning beyond that apart from being a point of conversation.

I think it matters less the older you get (especially once you reach adulthood). It's also a lot easier to make friends from a wide variety of ages as an adult since work will give you that opportunity, whereas at school you're naturally around people the same age.

Not really.
Age never really matters to me. (Though my friends are either the same age or a year older or younger than me.)

I don't think so....That's just My personal opinion. You can TALK to those older or younger than You without being a Pedophile. It's just the way Our Media have oversensationalized Child molesters and such. Granted, they ARE terrible Human beings. But YES, You CAN; rather, it IS possible to have a FRIENDSHIP, and ONLY a Friendship with someone older or Younger than Yourself.

Once again, just My opinion.

99% of peeps I befriend are adults usually in their 30's or older. 1% rarely, if ever, are my age or near my age range. Yet I make zero effort to keep contact or make contact.
