Ok lets try this again.

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?

I know you mean well Trin, but by restarting this topic after it had already been closed once doesn't seem like it's going to solve anything or let past tensions die.

Why should I have my topic closed because some other people just want to start trouble when everything could be handled through PMs? I posted this topic in good faith and only wanted to know what people think about age differences in relationships. It was not meant to stir up any trouble.

Trin, you know this is going to be a touchy subject on the forum. So why even start a thread about it when there's the possibility of old issues being rehashed, which happened.

I know you mean well, but there are people who will jump on the chance to bring things back up. I know you wanted people's opinions, but there's no way this would stay civil for very long.

The beach sounds so nice right now. :D I really need to stop procrastinating and get this last story finished for Creative Writing. But writing a story set in the 1800s is sooo boring. Maybe the beach will have to wait a few more days. Friday is Senior skip day. ;) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-2.gif

I'm going to try to have lunch with my friend Meahgan, I haven't seen her since Christmas. If that doesn't work out, I'll probably try to do something with my friend Kendra. Maybe go bowling. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

It was handled via PMs, like it should be.

You're one to talk. Besides, I just prefer to ignore you most of the time.

Draco

Heh, it wasnt attacks really, it was just a climax to a mutual understanding...

The hatchet has been buried, now only one person even thinks its worth digging up...

May that person not speak, and handle such privately, outside of these message boards.

Back on topic:

I tend not to look at age. I see the person, what they stand for, their opinions, their passions.

I think if you're 20 and your partner is like 12 thats crazy :eek: But once you're older it doesn't make a difference http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

So yeah, personally I don't really think age matters.

ive always lived by the 3 years younger, 3 years older...

I think anything outside that range borderlines on certain problems in someones life. I think that these ages reflect someones physical age and their mental age. Many people would find that this range brings together these two aspects and makes things easier on both parties.

furthermore i think that anyone that is less than 3 years mature than their physical age they need to have a look at themselves (personal opinion) - i.e. a 20 year old acting like a 16 year old = not good.

but, i think also the older rule can be bent beyond three years as some people can be more mature and could stretch that a bit further.

I could probably change my theory to reflect for the older person - so in percentages plus 15% of your age, minus 15% of your age. I was refering to my position as a 21 year old.

i dont doubt that when you are older you could find someone much younger that you enjoy spending time with or visa versa - but when we are talking the younger individual rules like these make things better for both involved - and on the parents im sure!... lol

finally - these are my personal opinions and reflect only what i believe - i mean there are people out there that make the most of totally different situations when it comes to bf/gf - and that is fine as long as it is happening for the right reasons... - then there are some out there that are together for a reason that doesnt either seem right, or valid - but its not my place to judge them.

I think like Natla i`d be careful of relationships with the pre-teen and low teens age say where the youngest is 14 or younger.But with say 16 yo they could well have a job and so it would only be natural for them to become friendly with their fellow workers who are most likely to be older.After 18 i think anything goes from a moral point of view.You need to grow up at some point and take personal responsibility for your actions so why not then?
Really as long as there is no unfair advantage being taken then age is unimportant, mutual respect is more important than chronological age.

I still live by ten years older providing both parties are over 16. For me personally, I'd only date someone older than 21 and up to ten years older than myself for reasons outlined in previous topic of this sort.

Age itself isn't the problem really, it's what is attached to that age...health problems can be an issue, so can financial problems...

First of all I don't realy understand this question......because the topicstarter doesn't explain why he asked the question.

Second......the topicstarter has a question about age differents between two people. Why?? Just curious? C'mon, if you want answers be a little honest about yourselfl. (at least)

Secondly - Why the question is asked is irrelivant to the answers/opinions that can be provided. I think the question is straight forward and the topicstarter does not need to provide background information on the reason behind starting the topic - that is why we are all friends here - because we provide our answers based on the grounds we are providing something that may help the individual(s) asking the questions... - or i hope that is the way it could work for an online community like this.

Im not sacking on you MarionF - just thought it inappropriate to ask Trin why she is asking the questions is all...

Have a Great Day MarionF http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

if both sides are adult persons,the difference in age doesn't matter!
the god of love don't understand about age,money,color,countries,borders etc!
but if we are talking about mariage then people must think about difference!if it is to much [for me not over 15 years] then things will be difficult!
