I don't see why age should matter, I have been thru situations where I see so many people give up good friends, lovers, and even may pass up a soulmate because they worry what other people think about age and if ts appropriate. Society has no right to judge people like that or make people give up what they want because people should group with their age group! That's lame! You do whatever u want to and what makes u happy! Don't give a whit to what people think as long as u are happy!:) come out and be u, of people don't like it it's their loss cause u need to be you and find people who appreciate u :)
Age is not an issue unless your youthful spry has you thinking 30 somethings want you hanging out partying with them or you want to date that 30 year old chick Don't leave the impression that your becoming senile
30 and up is appropriate! Even though age is nothing but number. However dating someone that looks like could be your child or grandchild is a bit squeemish, but people still do it anyways and deal with the stares. I once dated a man who was 50 when i was 20 and needless to say ppl thought he was my grandfather and that relationship didnt last long because of our age difference. He wanted to marry me but i wasnt ready and I am not going to lie that most younger people who date older people will use them soley for their money. Not saying everyone will, but the majority of younger people will do such a thing. It will almost be like a sugar relationship. So just becareful so you dont get hurt. Just try to avoid the whole Anna Nicole Smith image.
