Does Age matter


Now at the age of 35 I started seeing a lovely guy who was 11 years younger. I called it offer because I felt he too young although very mature. So my question is does age really matter?

Nope, unless...

It only matters to me when the age gap is in very different parts of the people's lives. Like a 50 year old with a 20 year old, they are not having the same life experiences.

Age doesn’t matter

No I don’t think age matters as long as both are comfortable and happy.

Age and age gaps

To be honest as long as you get on with each other and share in a lot of things, age is no barrier nor should it matter.
There's a ten year age gap between my parents and one of my siblings and her partner have a 6 year age gap and are the happiest couples/family units I know. Sometimes a big age gap does you and others a favour.

I think it depends on how much of age difference. I think it also depends on which decade of life the people are each in - what I mean is that if one person is 25 and one is 35 than those 10 years are a pretty big deal because those are such different stages of life....at 25 you're still so young, not a ton of life experience, etc., and at 35 you have a lot more life experience, etc., and it could be, I think, hard to relate to a 25 year old. But...

...but if one person is, say, 40 and one is 50, then those 10 years are not going to be as much of a big deal, because your maturity levels, life experiences, etc. are similar at those ages.

I don't know if I'm explaining it clearly, but, it's not just about how many years people are apart in age, it's also what their ages are. A 20 year old will not relate well to a 30 year old, but a 45 year old will relate well to a 55 year old, even though both couples are 10 years apart.

Some people say that age is just a number, but it's not, in my opinion. The longer you live, the more experiences you have, and the more you learn and grown and things. Age is experience. Some people also say that it's not about age, but about maturity. I see where they're coming from, but I disagree. Nothing can replace life experience - you can be the most mature 19 year old in the world, but you will still have have the actual, real-world experience that a 30 year old has had. Nothing can replace life experience.

I think that's why age matter less as you get older - it's because as you age, you get more life experience, so a 40 year old and a 50 year old will be able to relate to one another because they both have a fair amount of life experience, whereas a 20 year old hardly has any, so he won't relate well to a 30 year old that does have quite a bit of life experience.

Read this Carefully, and Best of Luck

Gee, there is some very wise advice already given here. Did you grow up with both your original parents? If so, you will automatically feel your folks' age-difference is the "norm". If they were 8 years apart, you'll start from there. As you are "only" 11 years different from your guy, that is the "outer edge of 8 years". But in your case, male and female are reversed. Okay, do you know much about the French President and his lady?

Brigette Macron is 67. At 40, she was teaching High School literature. One of her students, a 15-year old boy, was friends with her daughter in the same school. Quick switch: The kids were friends, but TEACHER Brigette, 40, married her STUDENT Emmanual Macron, and they are 25 years apart; President Macron being the younger. "C'est la vie," say the old folks; "it goes to show you never can tell." Take Chuck Berry's advice, IF you are 100% honest to yourself, and not shocked or stung by the following question: Do you love him?

Good luck.

Does Age Matter

Does Age Matter? For what, specifically?

For relationships? It depends on the age; however, if both consenting adults then no.

To drive? To drink? To vote? Yes. Yes. Yes. It's about Law.

Age is just a number

@Mia Fricker. Thanks for sharing the info. I agreed with your view that if both are comfortable then the age factor is not an issue. However, the age factor can be little bit hurdle in the physical relationship as the efficiency of a man at 50s can't be as it was in the 20s. However, it can be cured unto some extent by taking some pills such as Tecfidera.

age is not important

It is absolutely not important in the relationship! If you both feel good and comfortable just let it be. I think if the person is truly "yours" you will be together no matter what. My grandpa recently checked some seniors dating sites ca and found himself a new love)))) He is 74 and she is just over 50. They are extremely happy together and feels like they know each other the whole life.
