|Age GapsPage 3 of 3 (1, 2, 3)|
|As long as the person of interest is of legal age, who's to say but I and most might have a problem with "barely legal" I guess, when the younger person is of an older age: such as 25 to your 37, it might not rouse as many scowls.|
Yes, people seem less critical of a young man with older woman. I am 44 going on 45 and my boyfriend is 28. (been together 2 years)even though we have a 17 year gap...I would not date someone under say, 25.
I get DEMI MOORE jokes and comments all the time. I do not consider myself a cougar, because I did not pursue him it was the other way around.. (cougar hunter, I guess)
So, even though I don't quite like that you are wanting one so young, I do not want to sound like a hipocrit. so I,m on the fence.

|There are always exceptions to the rule but in general big age differences don't last. I also think it has a lot to do with what stage in life the age is. When we were young in High school we dated almost exclusively within 1 to 3 years of our age. When we were in our 20s, most dated around our age or a bit older. 30s were semi wide open. |
When I was younger almost all my relationships were with someone older, usually only a few years older. Now that I’m in my 40s and happy "POF doesn’t change the age with time," I find myself dating women 5 to 10 years younger for the most part.
I think it's a bit different for me though. I never married or had children and I think most people age in many ways by growing with a marriage and children. A route many time's I wish I would have taken but alas I didn't.
Its true age is a state of mind but there comes a time when your body might not feel the same as your mind and your tolerance, energy aren't what they use to be.

|That formula sounds good to me. In theory. Only problem i see is the human factor. Maturity, Chemistry, Desire, in other words all the other intangibles that go with it. I still say that some of the greatest memories i have in life had nothing to do with age.|

|I think it depends on what you are looking for in the long term..If it's just fun and you are both over the legal age (meaning it's not a jailable offence) haha then go for it but if you are looking for a committed relationship obviously there has to be a connection both mentally as well as the physical and don't think a vast age gap allows that for obvious reasons.. But hey different strokes for different folks we are all unique and whatever rocks your boat..|
