If I was actually the age of my profile, then maybe. At 44 I wouldn't have intentionally gone after a 25 year old. But if it "just happened" then I would be OK with it, assuming everything else was OK.
However I'm a fair amount older than that, so no.
The biggest problem is not the age itself. The biggest problem is where we are in life. We would be in totally different places in our lives. I'm thinking retirement, while she would just be getting started. I'm already fully established. It would be taking something away from her to join me in my life.
Notice I said "join me", not join together. That's an important distinction, and it couldn't be any other way. What am I supposed to do? Give up everything from my life, so I could be at her stage in life, buying my first set of dishes? There are stages of life, and it would take something from her to skip right past some of those stages to join someone older. For someone older it wouldn't be right to go back and repeat those stages of life.
I can only think of one situation where I think it would be OK. That's if she is someone who is very unlikely to find love any other way. But even then, 25 is too young think something like that. At 25 she should be looking for someone closer to her age.1
