A friend of mine and me once posted that "we're not getting any younger (we're both 22) and that we need to start thinking about serious relationships and our lives etc...however not all people are like this...so it got me thinking...does age really affect HOW you date, not necessarily who you date.
For example, If I'm 22 and I'm dating a girl who is only 18 then is she going to want to be in a serious relationship based on her age? (even if I want to be)

The answer to this question will be very subjective and will greatly depend on the individual and their worldview, lifestyle, family, friends, etc...I can only give my subjective opinion as a result. I think that at the age of 22 you may not "be getting any younger"...but you got a LONG way to go until you get natural platinum highlights, ya know? You are young and have the world ahead of you...unless of course you've been to college, your friends are getting married, starting a new career...then I could see you maybe considering settling down...but really...my opinion is no one under the age of 30 should do it...anyhow...I think when you are younger then you date for "fun"...when you get older you date for "potential". However, I did get married when I was 23...reflecting back on that...I was young...but I was mature. I learned a lot from that experience which has shaped who I am today...however...it's a big commitment and divorce is no fun...emotionally or financially. I think that no matter "how" people date...even if you aren't looking for commitment...you can still fall in love without even looking for it. So I recommend to everyone that you seek substance and compatibility. After all, looks fade...and even if you end up with Mr. or Mrs. Drop dead gorgeous...after a while it will get old unless they actually interest you. If anything you have to be developed as a person and know who you are in order for you to know what/who you are looking for.0
