Who Is Too Young or Too Old for You to Date?Page 4 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

Silly, the age of consent is 18. The rule stands!


MEN, always thinking about the sex.

There is no age of consent for dating, just keep it platonic for a few years.

Are you and Woody Allen related, by chance?

Like Elvis and Priscilla, they started dating when Priscilla was 14. but kept it platonic at first. So it does happen .

I do wonder why do one considered Elvis disgusting ??

But I guess it's notable to be " truly disgusting".

But I didn't say it was my thing, only commenting on the ramification of a a post by Seki949, so I don't think I can claim the honor of being " truly disgusting".

Of course, to the human heart nothing is absolute, but it's a good guideline.


I don't have a concern about Woody and his wife, odd to say the least, but they seem to be making it work. mia farrow seems just as odd / unconventional as Woody. I am glad I won't get into such convoluted / controversial relationships, I doubt I would be able to navigate all the pitfalls.

Yeah, but it's not a merely platonic situation if you also call it Dating. At best, you can have a within-social-group friendship when you're significantly older + she's a teen under 18. Anything more than that, and people will see thru it. Add to just being within-social-group friends, you also don't want to have any "plans" in mind, otherwise others will see thru that, too. In a nutshell, you shouldn't even passively Pursue a gal under 18, if you're in your late 20s or more.

But I guess it's notable to be " truly disgusting".

I think it's "disgusting" out of social-conditioning. But it wasn't disgusting in "the good 'ol days" of grandma & grandpa. And most importantly, biology has the backing that it's not Actually "disgusting". One's lying to themselves if they can't find a 16 year old gal more than mildly sexually attractive. Social conditioning provides counter-feelings that'll keep (most of) us from even wanting to make moves. It's very interesting in this slice of modern-day human age, that we treat someone who turns 18 as if magical fairy dust rained down from the sky to turn them into another type of being -- compared to being 15/16/17, seeing them as if they're practically in a crib - lol. I'm socially conditioned too that way... even looking at 18 & 19 year olds with counter-feelings when they are sexually attractive.

Men make me laugh when it comes to age! Many men expect women who are over 10 years older than them to fall in love!
It is a total surprise when she divorces him ha ah laugh.
17 years older the man and the women this much younger - No she will never be in love with you so wake-UP!
Lies from men are more accepted shame on society.

If he was young enough that I could have changed his diapers or babysat him -- too young.

I think young men and women are much more likely to believe in love while older people often get more cynical and put up more walls.

I have been the "younger" woman and also the "older" woman. Just remember that the younger person has the most power in the relationship. It is what it is!!!

No, the one who cares the least he has the power, and it could be either one of them.

Uhhhh, I'd say the opposite. Going for women 10 years+ older than them is "MILF Hunting" -- it's the ease of "just for fun" that entices them, not any expectation to fall in love. I think you're taking the messages from young guys too literally. :)

I think young men and women are much more likely to believe in love while older people often get more cynical and put up more walls.

I agree with that. Heck, we realize that hitting 30. But that's not just youthful-thinking, but it's buying into what maw & paw want us to believe -- the "ride off into the sunset", being in love with being in love. Admittedly, we all would want that for our kids... because, if they're not riding off in the sunset, and are social? What are they doing? Having fun in the bedroom -- f that! :)

Reality sets in later in life. Comparatively speaking, yeah, sure, it's "cynical". And more apt to be truly cynical if they were "all in" to the idea of puppy dogs & ice cream when they found out it was boring outside Xmas photos and the like, and having kids aren't Hallmark cards. But I think for the most part, it's just the lack of flawed warm-fuzzies.

Just remember that the younger person has the most power in the relationship. It is what it is!!!

All other things being equal, And there's a sizable age difference, sure. They're the more wanted one. The more wanted one has the upper hand. Age difference-advantage not required.

No, the one who cares the least has the power, and it could be either one of them.

I agree there, too. When you're tripping over your own feet to win the other over, you lose power. When (usually) a gal gets bombarded by online messages and guys macking on them at events/bars/outings, they're going to be more vulnerable to be turned on by guy who isn't kissing her a$$.

When you get to 60 like me older dates is not good at all.

Nothing wrong with punching out of your weight class. Just don't whine when it doesn't work out. I'm clearly too old for him but he wouldn't have a shot with me so it is win/win.

I'd lay odds he's been rejected by women all his adult life--even when he was in his prime. He's bitter, and it shows.

I think Mike has mental issues. 5'-6", overweight, probably an old pic, which is crappy anyway, so he's delusional to think he can fish in any age range other than what he's in. A softwear engineer and that's his pic? I don't buy it. I think he's just a nut.

That depends. If the older person is rich, famous, powerful etc, that could neutralize any advantage(s) the younger person might have.

Softwear? Lol. Sounds like he's an engineer to get into a woman's underpants. :)

Or just Clearly better looking. Or the older woman being Clearly better looking than the younger guy, but his youth merely gives him the edge to roll with some. Age difference is only 1 factor. Seeing the youth in someone is a physically attractive notion, but not the only one at all.
