View Full Version : Opinions please
When it comes to relationships like boyfriend/girlfriend relationships, how old is too old or how young is too young? Do you think age makes a difference after a certain age and if you do how many years difference do you think makes a difference? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
It depends entirely upon the individuals concerned I think. Having said that, you can get into murky waters here, and some relationships are entirely inapropriate.
I have very little, if any interest in relationships but I do have rules. I personally would avoid dating anyone over ten years older than myself. Eleven years would be pushing it. Why? Quite simply because I wouldn't want a guy who'd be in a home long before I'd exhausted my sense of adventure. A man sharing my life would have to be useful and if he cannot swim or whatever with me, why bother housing and feeding him? If I just wanted someone soley to come home to, I'd buy a pet! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
As for younger, I'm 20 and know I'd never date anyone under 20 if I DID meet anyone quite simply cos 18 and 19 usually still aren't mature enough to understand certain things about me. I am happy single and it's a good thing, as I'm not the easiest person to live with.

Neteru if you met someone who was 10yrs older than you that you really liked would the age difference be a problem?
Not at all. It would be preferable actually :D
I would date someone who WAS 10 yrs older but not more than that. Eleven years may be possible but is really pushing it.
I think age doesn't matter if you're in love.
As for my own experience, I tend to fall for people about my age. The youngest person I've dated was half a year younger than me, and the oldest is my current boyfriend who's 22 (I'm 20).
Age isn't as big an issue to me as lying about it. If yer not comfortable in your own skin, why should I be?
I have no real bother about love etc. but if I did, I know I'd only really want a useful person who wouldn't have a heart attack half way across the swimming pool, if you know what I mean. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif I don't connect desire to appearance anyway so I wouldn't like someone cos "he's hot." Have never had a date and it doesn't bother me-as long as I can go on an adventure holiday or whatever alone, a lover is no necessity. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-2.gif

I've heard you say a lot of times that you've let "it" go, but then you always find some sneaky little way to refer to it again. It really is time to let it go for good, Draco.
I'm closing this thread before it becomes a problem for the community.
