Yes & no. No but if the person in 16 and dating someone who is 35+ (really anyone older than 18) then it is kind of strange and just no. I wouldn't want to date someone old enough to be my parent. Might end up with a child parent relationship. Plus we most likely won't have anything in common.
I think it depends. Some people say age is only a number but that would mean a 50 year old man can date a 7 year old girl. I think there are some extents to which you should date. If you're 18, then you should be very careful about who you date under 18. Try to go no lower than 17. If you're over 18, then date whoever you want that is 18 or older.
in my opinion age limit is not there. however dating is fit over the age 15 or above......the real thing matter is the maturity......sometimes one gains the maturity age after a long period of time and sometimes earlier.......today's condition had led the laws to be changed....now 16 year is meant fit for maturity.
Yes, it does. Because the older person has more life, love, sex, school, career experience then you. They be able to see a movie, drink at 21 and you can't. In very rare cases it may last. Most of the time, it won't. But hey give it a chance I suppose.

,its for the person if she or he love each other no one could break them...even 20 years gap ...its either with the person..but for me i like the boy is older 1 or something 3 years older than me..its better than the girl is older than the boy...
This question is officially so overrated. Hell no it does not matter...kind of. I mean if the girls 13 and the guys like 20 then we've got a babysitter on our hands not a boyfriend. But I mean honestly love is love and liking someone is liking someone you just can't control feelings and if you can't stop them why should age? I've known a married couple 17 years apart and two other married couples 20 years apart. Sure it might seem like a big deal in high school and university but lets be real. Age is just a number when it comes to love. Love consumes you, you can't control it just like you can't control age. Love is love. You can't just all of a sudden get rid of it due to a number.
If you are just dating and having a good time with each other I say have fun and enjoy each others company BUT If your thinking about a future with each other and there's a 20+ years difference there will come a time where the years do matter..
I really believe that age does matter when it comes to dating if you are from ages 1-16. i think dating should start from 17 and on. If you are 18 then it is okay to date people older than you because you are considered an adult and should be mature enough to pick wisely. Good luck.
Yes, young girls are emotionally not ready for an older boy who is wired to get sex. They will get messed up in the head being all in love etc. The older boys are not fitting in with their age group and that is because there is something socially wrong with them. The young girls eat the attention and are happy to have a date at mc donalds. This senario is always a teen mother to be.
for me not really people might be discussed by it but dont let that bother you i mean i have a friend and her parents are 20 years apart if you love someone and they love you you shouldnt care what others think just date them
Yes yes it does because, you don't know what people could do to you !! I mean seriously .. i don't care about looks, or anything like that!! I am 14 , and i have a 17 year old boyfriend.. but that's only because, i love him.. and this is Cassie Sanders.. not emo unicorn.. !!
In some ways it does because for those who say after 18, 21 or 25 age doesn't matter is lying through their teeth. i'm 25 years old and there is no way in HELL a 30 or 40 year old would want to date somebody my age nor would I want to date someone much older than me.
Plus when people hit certain ages, they have different goals and priorities in life that someone younger or older than them might not have which will result in incompatibility. So in some ways, age does play a role in dating.
Ask yourself, would you date someone who was a good amount of years older or younger than you? (not including anyone under 18).
Just dating to have fun? It doesn't matter so much, though it's more of a factor the younger the youngest party is. Dating to find marriage/long-term commitment? It does matter, particularly when hopes for children don't line up with the realities of age, and when you consider feelings when one person is truly entering their senior years and the other isn't there yet. (Things feel and look much different at 30 and 50 than they do at 50 and 70!)
Yes, and no. I think that if two people truly love each other than it doesn't matter. BUT if one of the people in the relationship is old enough to be the others mother/father then it's a different story, especially if they're over 11 years older than the other person. But as long as it's for all the right reasons, not just lust or some other perversion, then it shouldn't matter. Love is love. :) (Not saying I'd be okay with some 50 yr. old man/woman dating a 5 yr. old kid.)
Well it really depends if he if he was like 50 and your were like 22 then it would be revolting but as long as you like him and he likes you than go for it but please don't go for someone that is 30 years older but if he was just like 5 years or like 10 years older than that would be fine.
It all depends on several factors such as if you are young what type of date will you have? It's best to have a group activity or some kind of chaperone unless you are 18 bc of the widespread infidelity that is going on in America.
