What do you think of relationships with age gaps? Do you have any age gap limit? Would you mind getting into that kind of relationship or does it not matter?

I personally wouldn't be in a relationship whit anyone if they're 2 years younger then me or older then me.

But I've got no problems whit other people in those kind of relations as long as one of them isn't abused by the other!

you'll never know who you meet in life, anything can happen and you can't really make assumptions on what's right or wrong because human feelings have more power over thoughts, the right thing is to be open, in other words; it doesn't matter

Personally, I'm closed in and thinking inside the box, I don't want to be in a relationship, I want to sacrifice things to have time to achieve my own personal goals

I don't really think age matters in relationships. Unless its too much of a gap or illegal.
I personally like older people, I'm not going to give a figure though.

Overall, I feel age gaps are irrelevant as long as everyone is of legal age (country specific) and the relationship is consensual (no coercion or intimidation).

Personally, at this point (51), I don't date women that are more than 10 years younger than me. When I was younger, I dated in my own age range (20's, 30's, etc) .... As for now, 10-years is the age gap that I'm most comfortable with and it seems that women in their mid-40's are fine with dating me at this age. But that's just a personal preference; not a moral stance.

/Edit ... should mention that I do date women older that me as well and have most of my life.

Can't really choose who to fall for.

However it is somewhat inevitable with an age gap that there could be issues. You're going to be on a different level in terms of maturity.

I'm 25 (just about), although it's legally viable that I could date a girl in her late teens (17+); a 17/18, hell maybe even 19 year old girl are going to be at a different stage of their life than me, whereas I've done the whole crazy party life thing, they're going to be mad for it, with every week revolving around going to clubs and getting wasted on a Friday/Saturday night.

Similarly if I was to go up in terms of age, if I was to go into the 30s, inevitably they'd be at a different stage of life than me and it would be difficult to make it work.

Generally you find there are more relationships with older guys with younger girls, than vice-versa. As girls tend to be more mature than guys at the same age.

All in all, I'd probably see my range as 20-28, with me at 25.

Obviously though it's different for different people. A friend of mine is 26 but his fiance is 40. So each to their own i guess.

Once you're both legal pretty well anything goes.. I had two relationships with a seven year gap in age... one was heaven one was hell.. my best friend it's married to a man twenty years offer than her and they are brilliantly happy and I'm a bit jealous how perfect they are, but very happy for her.. they just passed the ten year mark

Considering I'm not looking for anything serious(Marriage and kids) right now dating someone who's 30 or even 40 wouldn't matter much to me at all. I think it would be interesting to say the least, as long as I find them attractive then I would most likely date them if they were willing to date someone as young as me and actually want more than just sex.

It matters more on individuals and what they want out of their relationships than on age proximity. I've been happily in relationships with people both younger and older, with the biggest age differences being with someone 25 years older. and with someone 16 years younger.

My boyfriend is 7 years older than I am.
I realized when we first started seeing each other, I had had a crush on him when I was 13 and he was 20.
-Self high five-

I would never date anyone under the age of 20. And at this point, I wouldn't date anyone over the age of 40.

You can learn a lot from an older partner; ironically out was the younger partner who taught me most about love and life. I suppose you never quite know what well happen

As long as everything's legal, age itself should be of no consequence. What might prove of more importance is sharing common interests, the lack of which often plagues relationships between people of all ages, but is especially telling when the age gap is larger.

I don't believe in love ... but if I were to have a boyfriend or a partner, age wouldn't matter. It's all about the connection, the chemistry.

Don't matter. Some people think dating someone younger might not be so good as they're in a different mindset, but that isn't always true. Some people know straight way what they wanna do, and are more mature / level headed. I mean it's obviously not all of them, but the same can be said for ones who are older to so it just depends who you click with.

Age doesn't matter in my opinion. Why should it? If both people in the relationship want it, why not?
