Does age really matter? Opinions wanted.

So does age really matter? If so, is there a limit most people (namely women) put on a relationship? I like a woman who is 10 years younger than me, but I think we're compatible. There are some issues surrounding my relationship with her, but that's been posted to the Magazine.

I think age isn't a factor. If the people are attracted and are compatible, there needn't be a problem. I don't advocate an 80 year old marrying an 18 year old... there's just too much of a difference in years and life experiences.

But is there a limit for most women? Obviously, if I were 20 and I was dating a 10 year old, that would be weird. I've noticed a lot of women put an age limit on guys they'll date. Just out of curiousity, why is that? I'm not trying to change your mind... just curious. Personally I have an age range of 20-35, and that's based on attraction and maturity level.

Any women want to post their opinions on age difference? Guys too, if ya really want to.

I completely agree, age is just a number. Actually I like dateing men 10 years older than me. Like they say men seem to mature later in life, compared to women. So most men my age (26) are not at mt level!!!

Well for me my preference wasn't something i was even aware of my sister pointed it out, I've only been serious about the guys that are at least 2 years younger than me. Most girls want someone older. I don't trust older guys, I married a man 3 years younger...thats just me.

I guess women put a limit on age just as one would put a preference on race. For me I just wont deal with a man who is more than five years younger than me or more than fifteen years older between 34 and 55 is what I prefer. When I was 30 I wasnt looking for a 20 yr olds I was looking for 30 and above but not as old as my parents. just my thoughts.

I am the real deal! "Come Get Me!!!"

Personally, I used to date younger guys. Not a lot younger, usually just 4-5 years or so, although I had a chance when I was in my early 30s to date a 20 year old but wouldn't do it. There was too much difference in our maturity levels and our outlook on life. As I've gotten older, I've dated more men my age or a little older. Then, I was blessed with the man I'm with now who is 18 years older than me, but he's more loving, more mature, more fun, wiser, attentive, active, sexual, sensual...the list goes on...than any man I dated before him. There's so much to be said for maturity.

I think age is mainly a number, however. It's who you are compatible that matters. BUT there are some limits, as you've mentioned.

Age is only a number. That is the truth as long as you have common interests whats the problem. Personaly I love older men.

My wife and I have a 7 year age difference between us. I don't find that to be much of a difference but some of her friends do refer to me as the old guy. The only thing that matters is the feelings we share for eachother.
