What do you think of relationships with age gaps?

To me, I would date any at the age of 16-20. Younger than 16 would be embarrassing for me, older than 22 would be a little too much work for me. Since I turn 18, age doesn't really matter, but I have to set limits when dating someone younger than me.

If they are legal, fuck it. Love (or lust) manifests itself in many forms.

Well, being 23 and in university, I could see myself being with someone 18 I suppose that it isn't that big of a gap for adults, on the upper end I would probably consider dating someone who is 25. As I grow older, within limits I don't think I'd mind dating someone at university age, given a decent level of maturity, dating someone older though, seems to be of less interest to me, even putting aside physical attraction.

Gaps in age shouldn't matter. If the people in the relationship are happy, that's all that matters.

If it's a significant age gap, my first thought is that someone's a pedo. To be quite honest. XD

Age gaps are fine up to a point. A couple of years difference isn't bad. And it's not as bad when the parties involved are both adults (like when one person is 30 and the other is 40 for example).
But whenever I hear about a 14 year old getting with a 21 year old... yeah someone's being stupid and impulsive.

My last two bfs were 14 and 11 years older than me. I broke up with them, the first one due to sex and the second one due to immaturity. The heart wants what the heart wants. As long as there's nothing predatory going on it's fine. You just have to remember that as you get older that gap can feel a lot bigger when the older person is slowing down. Don't forget that women don't reach their sexual peak until 45 whereas men reach it at 18, so I'd say the biggest hurdle would be sexual.

Personally my +/- is 3 years.

I'd be open to dating an older girl but it would make me feel like I'm a baby compared to her.

What's right and wrong in a relationship is more about the individual than about their ages.

Doesn't matter if they're even born on the same day, if they're at each others' throats then that's not gonna fly

Whenever I hear that I think someone's going to jail

I'm not a fan of huge age gaps. I just don't get it. I feel that often times it doesn't work out, but there are always exceptions. They don't typically work out because of life stages. People in their early 20s and people in their late 30s aren't quite in the same space, and don't get me started on teens dating up.

I don't even know how'd you forge a healthy relationship when the two of you aren't even on the same page. -excessive shrugging-

The older you get the less it matters. As long you have common interests and things to keep the relationship going if you're looking for more than a fling. I just went on a date with an older woman and I'm going to ask her out again soon.

I used to have an iron clad rule of never dating anyone under the age of 25, that was when I was 29. I ended up with someone 11 years younger than me. That being said I despised immaturity and thought it was a waste of my time to date people who were BEHIND me so to speak. I was so wrong and much more immature than the woman I met, and she felt like my best friend and emotionally equal in so many ways. I was really wrong about youth. I have now been with her 10 years and would never change a thing. I'm not sure this can be said of women dating younger men though.

I feel as long as they both love each other it shouldn't matter.

I don't have any problem with it provided that both parts are already adults and there isn't any kind of abuse involved. Though, personally, I have never seen the appeal.

As long as she can buy her own booze and cigarettes I really don't care.

One woman I was involved with seemed like she was in her late twenties early thirties . . . she was 22.... She acted very mature. I think that is the key. (I was in my late thirties at the time.)
If you want someone who acts like they're in highschool, there are people like that, regardless of how old they are.
It is harder to be sophisticated.
