For me I'm 20 dating an 18 year old and we've been dating for 2 1/2 years. To be honest I didn't want to date a guy younger than me before I met Derrick at 17 (quickly turned 18 after). I mean with me being 17 any guy younger was too immature for me except for Derrick. He seemed older than me and a lot of people mistake him for being 20+ when he was 16. So age does matter to me at a certain point with the max being 10 years older and 2 years younger (as of right now) even though I'm taken

Though I think it does matter in some ways. Like lets say a 20 yo. and 43 yo. are dating. They are at different stages in their lives like the 43 yo. is ready to settle down while that 20 yo. still is in college and wants to enjoy their life doing other things. If you're roughly the same age (as in not old enough to be ones parent to the other) you can experience life together and those stages together while if you are in two different stages it's sometimes hard to be on the same page. Like Derrick is graduating HS in like 2 weeks but I've been ready to move in and start our life together for a while now but he was still in high school. Even though we were roughly the same age we were at different points in our lives. I'm just not a patient person though haha


I'm a little confused. did you meet derrick at 17 or were you 17 when you met him?

After a certain age it really doesn't matter.

I was 17 turning 18 and he was 16.

I don't really have an age rule, it's about attraction at the end of the day. I think age doesn't matter as long as it doesn't involve children. If the people are happy then it's not our place to judge. ^^

age is just a number, if you love someone and would like a relationship with that person, as long as it is mutual and consensual, go for it. age should not stop you. having said that, age gap of 60+ scares me a little tho but i don't judge.

My girlfriend is almost 3 years younger than me. I'm a senior, she's a sophomore, and we've gotten weird looks from people, but I really don't mind because I know that I'm happy with her.

As for an age limit, it's either 3 years younger, or 2 years older. That's my limit at the moment.

i think that age gap is quite reasonable and a relationship should work. a couple of my friends actually met in a similar scenario. So, towards the end of your story, you said you were not patient, does that mean that it didn't work out?

just read about some guy who left his 40 something year old wife for an 83 years old lady. The wife caught him cheating on her when she went to borrow cooking salt from the 83 year old neighbour

and I'm just thinking in my head... "GROSS"...

I seriously don't want to be that old and still hold that kind of desire.



your not going to have sex when you become old?
