I find it odd when a 22-24 year old refers to someone 28 or 29 (in that case me) as older.
Even if I were a day older than these people (I'd be older by technical references).
However, lets put this aside for a moment.
People to considering someone 5-7 years as much older seems odd to me.
This person wasn't your age too long ago and can still relate to you.
I don't even consider a 35 year old as a older person.
I talk to that person as if we are the same age.
Usually when I say "older" it's in reference to someone 10-30+ years.
So, people I guess what I'm asking is how old are you? and typically what age do you consider "older?"
I meant ***For people to consider someone 5-7 years as much older seems odd to me.

I am 29, i consider 36+ older and 24- young.
This is how i see maturity and stages in life as far as my personal experiences with people and myself:
18-20 = Just learning to be an adult.. they may hold a teenie job or in college. This is a very savage time period as they're no longer teens but they are just learning about the world. Slowly realizing that they aren't that special, no one cares about their opinions and aren't the super star they thought they were.
21-24 = good times.. now they're interacting with people older than them. A lot of realization and "oh.. i should be less judgmental and black and white because everyone makes mistakes..." Finishing up college or striving to move forward from their first few years of employment. Vegas, trying new adult things and social fearlessness.
25-30 = Current reflection, have had some relationship experience... ideas about your partner switch from "who can i have fun with" to compatibility that goes beyond the fun. Career and self identity becomes intensified, no longer are you in that "this is be good enough" mode. $$
30+ = no idea. so.. i'll say 35+ is out of my dating age range. I'd imagine they'd want someone that's moved pass my stage.1
