There are far too many stereotypes about age in this society...

When you're under 40 people will say things to you like, "Oh, you're young yet, do this and do that."

When you're over 40 people say, "Well, you've had a good ride. Just be happy with the past."

When we cut down this nonsense, the truth is that there is no actual age when people REALIZE, become READY, or have wisdom, etc. These are all stereotypes. Many of your greatest qualities are embedded within you from a long time ago, they may enhance and amplify as time goes by, or they may not. A fool usually remains a fool forever, years and experiences don't always change that. It most cases, it simply doesn't change it at all...

Each individual is different, and that's how we have to gauge each person; as they come. I've met people in their 20's that had more wisdom than those who are in their 50's and beyond, which makes me upset because it forces me to question the strength and lack thereof of the elders in this society, but I won't even get into that one right now...

When I was in university, I knew lots of girls/women who were attracted to older professors and even had affairs or relationships with them. A few even got married! Personally, I have no problem dating anyone from 19 and upwards and have done so over the last few years. I think a lot of younger women appreciate the complexity and sophistication of most older men.

I have always prefered females who were a little younger than I am. 5 years younger is the furthest I have gone so far, but would not against dating/messing around with a female as long we hit it off and she is old enough to be legal.

Age is never the cause of failed relationships. Failure is always due to character traits, incompatibility, mental illness, timing, etc.

I think it's sad that online dating software uses age as the key parameter in matching people. Computers just love numbers, but can't deal with fuzzy concepts like "personality" and "physical attraction". We never select people by age in real life . . . cause we're too busy ogling.

I've seen "young" people 30 that are stodgy, potbellied and old-looking, and people in their 60s that feel like teenagers, I think there's more to people that their chronological age.

I recently dated a woman 17 years younger and age was never an issue. My sweet spot is women in their mid-30s, it just works for me. I'm finally ready to commit and have children, and women in their 30s are going TIC-TIC-TIC, panicking and keep dreaming of guys like me but can't find them.

I am marrying a girl 17 years younger than me. I do not like that gap at all, really, but we just instantly clicked.

I met her when she was 22, and while she was *very* mature for her age, she had not experienced much, so I got to do a *lot* of firsts for her. For instance she was hating her job early on, so I sent her flowers. I find out no one had ever done that for her, which as a guy is "WOOHOO COOL" territory.

In the last three years she has just blossomed into a full fledged woman. It is really amazing to see her now and remember back then.

I worry about the end game part, but day-to-day, she is simply a pleasure to be around.

It helps that we do not look like old guy/young girl.

At the moment, at least :)

I see it like this..man or woman turn 19...how much older the person is after that they choose to date is there business even if i dont agree.

^^^^^ maybe “25 35” isn’t the age range; maybe it’s the quantity of women and he wants his own harem. :/

And I’m sure that proclamation resulted in loads of messages. :D
