I've dated women decades older than me so I would say it doesn't bother me at all

That's a grey area with me...

I don't mind having older or younger friends, but if they don't understand the body's function and trust me, I once was sent to a group filled with elderly people (way past menopause\irritable male syndrome AKA low testosterone), then I don't give them the time of day. I currently deal with obnoxiously erratic hormone flows and having someone understand the ebb and flow of hormones during the yearly process usually makes connecting better.

Besides, I usually see elderly people as replacement grandparents as mine live 3,000 miles away from me. So I do respect my elders, but I hate going into relationship that won't last beyond 20 years.

On the other end of the spectrum, I look creepy as it is. I look 15, but I am trying to look my age (25 going on 26) as well as act my age.

Then again, my friends, two of which are a few years younger than me tell me that we don't "grow up" but rather, learn how to behave ourselves.

Up to a certain point.

I do have friends younger than me, some older.

But like most said, a 60 yrs old guys having a 12 yrs old 'friend' (not relative) is a no.

But in all seriousness, the only thing is with a big age gap is that ppl are in different moments/stages in their lives and most often won't share the same interests,views,opinions.

It's possible but to the limit of the reasonable.

This is highly dependent on the person, maturity and many other factors are involved with if or not a huge age gap can work.

In a friendship no many of my closest friends are far older than I, in fact I prefer older friends they often have more experience and more to offer than someone younger. On the other hand I have many younger friends that I can only relate to on a casual level because they are so much younger. Some can't even drink..but they still are invaluable friends.

It depends on the individual.

Personally, I find it's more comfortable to be with people in my age group.

A plus or minus 20 year difference is my limit, so it matters to me somewhat.

Family friends not included. xD (As long as I like them. heh heh.)

No, not at all. I am only 19, yet I have friends from work that are in their twenties and thirties.

I think there comes a point where it isn't called a friendship, but something of the sort.

I don't think it's too big a deal. The important thing is common interests and understanding. Such things are ageless.
