Hello Welcome!
I'm not one to ask cause I feel it doesn't matter to me!! Again to me!!
If the couple are happy that's all that matters! Who am I to judge :)

well that depends on your age and where you are in our life. If I am 19 I'm not datring any guy less than 18. If I'm 25 then maybe no younger than 21. If I'm 30 umm 25/26 probably. Once I'm in my 40s  He must be at least 1/2 way between me and my kids age.  Hell I'd be flattered to be asked out by a younger guy. I adore young guys. Old guys scare me.  HAHAHA

I always dated around my age. I told my girls 5 years is too much. They date around their age too.

 Although I don't think there is an acceptable age, I do think there are some general things to consider. Being married to a man 13 years older that me (which initially didn't seem like much) has certainly had it's drawbacks. I'm not saying its JUST age, but a great deal of factors like life style, health, interests, common goals and values all of which seem to change as you gain "maturity."

I would be curious on a study between older women and young men...VS older men and younger women. I would BET that the older women/younger men scenario's last longer because we women just don't lose ground like the men...lol.

Well, it all depends on the ages to me if you're 50 and wanting to date a 17 yr old yes too much age difference there but I think if it's over the age of consent normally 21 to me it's all fine in my book.

 Welcome!

To me age is just a number. If both parties are happy then who am I to say anything?
