I have always heard to go by the divide your age by 2 then add 7 rule.

example: youngest a 26 year old should date is 20

not true around the world. in some parts of asia and africa, one can marry somebody significanly younger.

and the same must be true of courtships in some of these cultures.

Re: Age gaps in relationships, does love rule all or must there be an absolute limit?

Interesting thread but I firmly believe that love has no barrier as long as the concerned people involved in a relationship both mutually agree on it, love each other and are happy with the way things are going on. If both of them are happy, and both are adults, then there shouldn't be any issues.

Age is not something I would personally consider while seeking a relationship with a person. I know some who are in their 40's and the other half is in their 20's and they have been living happily for many years now. I don't find it as a hindrance as long as you love each other (which is what is most important in these aspects).

Are you aware that both of these statements taken individually are actually in contradiction with the second statement (the second statement is self-defeating)? You have two prescriptions, the second of which prescribes the rejection of prescriptions

Additionally, the first statement is appalling advice. There can be little doubt that plenty of rapes and murders have "felt right" to the perpetrators.

I was 24 and I nearly succeeded in sleeping with a 55 year old. Providing they are legal age, it's all good.

lol at "nearly succeeded." You better believe that I'd like to hear some elaboration on that one.

Re: Age gaps in relationships, does love rule all or must there be an absolute limit?

When I was 18 I dated guys around 30, and in my early 20s guys were usually 20-25 older. Less problems with such people: don't make scenes, aren't significantly behind me regarding intelligence, don't try silly bullshit that I can read through after a few seconds...

But that was fine for a romance. For having a future together, kids etc. I'd need someone around my age, up to 5 years older. I suspected I'd meet someone like that around 30, eventually I fell for one person who fits my criteria earlier, though surviving scenes from him was often hard. Just enjoying every day now, not really looking ahead... and for the first time in my life I feel safe and complete.

Re: Age gaps in relationships, does love rule all or must there be an absolute limit?

i just met a very hot blond. and yes she was all over me within minutes.

the problem: she is 51. i have never been with a woman older than 39 so this may be a bit of shock. and i thought she at 39 was too damn old. i saw her for about 3 months before i decided to flee the scene.

translation: i think i will pass. clay death the destroyer requires young meat.

What a guy!

Posts like this are some of the strongest ACC campaigning I have ever seen from you. What an absolutely vile thing to say.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself.
