Dating Age-gap: What's acceptable/reasonable?

For instance, should a 41 year old guy be dating a 22 year old girlfriend? Are there accepted rules of conduct/engagement here? Or is it all a matter of choice for the two people, and no one else's business?

  • In my opinion, after you turn 18 or maybe even 21 age is just a number, if you love the person, dont worry about what others think!

  • Something is wrong with you if you are dating someone that is old enough to be a daughter. You can try to rationalize it all that you want but there's something off with you if are able to have an intimate relationship with someone so young. You are just going to accept the answers that you like and disregard that ones that you don't I'm just stating the truth from an outside perspective. You are asking this question for a reason and I'm calcifying to you that yes it is wrong.

  • As long as both people are adults, I don't care the difference.

    My boyfriend is 6 years younger than I am and the guy I dated before him was 7 years older, doesn't mean anything to me either way as long as they make you happy.

  • As long as it's two consenting adults, no one should care.

  • I'm not going to tell grown adults who they can and can't date, but I do find such large age gaps off-putting and generally just don't think they're a good idea. And personally, I wouldn't date someone more than 10 years older than me.
