  • In my opinion and in regards to my own personal relationships yes. I don't think I could take a guy much younger than me very seriously and I couldn't be with an older man who would, well, get old before me! But I'm not saying it's wrong to date anyone much older or younger. Who cares! Love is all that matters.

  • It depends on what you mean. If you mean is it morally wrong, then I would agree with the first two answers. If you mean in compatability, I would say yes, sometimes it does matter. I am 39 and would have very little in common with someone 20 years older or younger than me.

  • "Age is all relative" - that's what they say. If you are talking about ages in a relationship there is a big difference if you are 20 years apart at 25 and 45 but I work with seniors and there are plenty of 80 year olds married to 60 years olds and guess who is doing better and still wanting to travel andget around? You do have to think about that.

  • It depends on the people and the ages. How much life and maturity they each have. You bet it does... It matters alot if you are young, not so much if you are older. two or three years not to bad ten twelve years lets talk...
