  • depends on the couple I suppose, but I would say anything more than 10 would be pushing it.

  • Age doesn't matter! Not one bit! Happiness matters!

  • I really don't think that any age difference is right or wrong. It is all about the people involved. I know people who are together who are 20+ years apart, and couldn't be happier, but in the same aspect, I know couples who are only a few months apart in age, and they are horrible together. So really it is all about the people involved in the relationship, and really, as long as everyone is happy, who cares about age!

  • My SO and I are 15 years apart. I am 20 and he is 35. We couldn't be happier! He is a little immature for his age and I'm a little mature for my age. We have LOADS of things in common and our age difference is the very last thing on my mind.

  • Age doesn't matter. It might look crazy to people looking in on a relationship, but it's not the business of anyone but the two people involved.

  • I think it is completely up to the parties involved. Some people look past the age difference and can be happy. I personally like older men. So for me I don't know if I would date anyone more than 10 years my senior.

  • When I was 19 I dated a guy who was 44.....and it probably would have worked out if hadn't gotten a new job and had to transfer to another state. It is up to the couple Id like to say but unfortunately people loook at you like what where you

  • It is more about compatibility then it is about age

  • I would never go more than 5 years older, and at this point in my life, I wouldnt go younger at all. But to each his own!

  • As long as both parties are legal, I don't think it matters. Personality can easily transcend age.
