My question is, does age matter? I have come to believe that age is nothing but a number. I have dated younger women than me (clearly 18+) and dated older women, up to 7 years older now. I have found that age doesn't bother me in the least. Is this normal?

(I searched and didn't find a post like mine, sorry if someone posted this thread already )

I'm like you I guess. I've dated a lot of women within 5 years of my age both older and younger. But I find that age does make a difference, especially at my age. Basically, the only thing it affects is it seems to determine how much exposure they've had to the dating scene, and experience builds maturity (as far as how you treat each other)... and I can tell you that I've definetly seen a difference because of it.

I suppose I have not been labeled as immature by any of my previous relationships. I wonder about it though. In relationships, casual dinners or serious when you coming home so we can watch movies/ go help my parents do " " or even the we are going out to play and I will call you tomorrow after I sober up relationships.

Age didn't really factor into how well the relationship went. The maturity of the woman doesn't bother me I guess. I just realized that I am highly accepting of people. I think in all, I just can't stand people that steal.

Maybe, the 18 year old was immature... maybe. Or maybe the 31 year old was mature but felt young around me. But, I felt that if I see them for the beautiful person they are, I am never a liar in how I feel.

Sure age is only a number, but from a female perspective (especially at a young age like mine) younger boys DO tend to be really immature. Not necessarily though, I mean my bf just turned 17 and I couldn't be happier with him. xD

Immature pun aside, "That's what she said." The 31 year old. She is amazing, but aside from that, she said she don't want to be tied down to anyone. Which is understandable considering her history.

In the end, I figured if she wants to call me and I could show her a good time, I date her, make her happy. All the good stuff. Then we go back to being just friends that email each other and go have lunch every now and then.

Myself, I feel I don't want to be tied down either, which a fact I keep to myself most times.

But, that is besides the point. From a woman's perspective. If you felt like your liked them and you want to spend time with them, does the year on your birth certificate stop you from enjoying a good thing? I know, most guys don't care. Or maybe it matters to some. I think I will however draw the line at the age of she could be my mother, or vice verse my daughter.

Sorry, but this is a duplicate thread of this one:

Does age matter in love?

Since you guys are talking about dating and love, I guess the link above would already suffice.
