  • It's not age itself, but more the differences associated with different ages. Like where you are in life, like in my early 20's i didn't want to date someone a lot older than me because i wasn't ready for the kind of commitment they were looking for. And that really comes down to maturity and personality more so than age, but i feel like often age is a good indicator of maturity. Also like if it's a bigger gap there will probably be a lot of references you won't get or things you won't have in common.
    So it kinda does matter, but only in as much as it accurately reflects the likelihood of commonalities.

  • I am a firm believer that age does have an impact on people. If there is anything more than a ten year difference than I don't know that there will always be compatibility.

    That is just my two cents.

  • The way I see it is, age is just a number. If you are both over 18, then go for it. But, if you are 18, and she is 12, BIG DIFFERENCE, I mean, she barely just started puberty! But ages like 21 and 22 and perfectly fine!
    Hope I helped!

  • I wouldn't date a younger guy so it does matter :3 I guess age sort of puts you in a type of position. LIKE if a girl dates a younger guy she's feel the need the mother her bf ( just me? Okay :P ) and if a girl date an older guy she's feel more protected

  • Uhm I like my guy older but I can deal with it! Like currently I like a guy who's 18. And I recently broke up with someone we dated 5 years and he was 13 when we started dating and I was 10. So... He's 18 now I'm 15, but again I like another 18yo

  • I believe the rule I've heard for twenty-something guys is minimum half your age plus seven. Thus, my bf (21) could reasonably date an 18 year old. However, this matters less and less the more you mature.
    by the way, I'm the older one in the relationship. It just depends on the maturity and independence of the people dating. Can he/she hold a job? Be a good designated driver?
