What is wrong with men?Page 25 of 25    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25)
everyone is different; just because you aren't into it does it mean the whole world must think like you do? seriously I dont get what you are saying; everyone is different;

You are 24 and I guess you think the way you are is the right way, but it's not about you; everyone has their own choices to make;

make yours and stop judging others for making theirs.

What is wrong with men?

A wonderful (and stunningly beautiful) woman messaged me, and informed me that expertise such as mine is missing from this thread.

So, the problem seems to be people arguing about age differences.

Personally, I don't see why age should be a problem.
People either connect, or they don't. It's about personality. Age is just a number. It doesn't decide who you are, or who you can click with.

Yes, having an age gap SOMETIMES makes it a little harder to connect on some social references. Music, fashion, dance, etc... changes. And dating someone 20 years older than you, might leave a big of a gap there.

But then, isn't the point of a relationship, to really get to know each other? Enrich each others lives. Learn the ins and outs of what makes you both tick.
You can teach each other the things you might not have much knowledge of.
Nobody is going to be an exact match. There will always be differences. And learning from them is part of being with someone.

I've dated people that I've had quite a large age gap with. And it's never hurt the relationship. Young or old, if their personality attracts me, that's what matters.
Yeah, we may not have connected on everything. Different tastes in some things, or life experiences. But we just used learning about those differences as a way to become even closer.

The other way around for me. I shag off a 24 yr old man at work. He got the message.

When she told me "You're old enough to be my daddy!" I replied, "Yeah, and just my luck that you don't believe in incest!"
