question says it all. how much older could you date without it bothering you?

I think age - to me, isn't that important. What's important is that your both on the same page. In a lot of cases someone older would be interested in, or looking for, something different than someone my age. But if I found someone older, who I gelled with, who was looking for the same things as me - then the age wouldn't be an issue.
I have a friend, my age, 18, who's dating a guy who's 32 (?) I think. For starters he looks young for his age; not that that has much to do with anything - but it means they don't stand out as a couple who you'd look at and immediately think they don't belong together.
He's a really down to earth, nice guy; and their both in the same place in their lives. They've got a flat together but neither of them yet are looking to start a family or settle down - so really any age difference between them doesn't have much effect on their relationship. And seen as she's 18 - she's able to do everything he can do - drink, pubs, clubs, etc - so there are no restraints like that on their relationship.
She's pretty mature for her age, and he pretty, not immature, but - young, for his age - so they kind of meet some place in the middle. If this happens, and a couple can make it work - I don't really see age as an issue.0
