    Not really. Nearly all my friends range from 16-19.

    No. I'm a sad pathetic loner and I'll never have any friends.
    Me too! I don't think it's sad and pathetic though.

    Seeing as you are one of the few who actually seems to have a younger friend (as opposed to a significantly older), do people find that weird or not particularly?
    Well the lowest and highest ones are online. I've known the one who is 40 for about 6 years and speak daily. The youngest I have only known for a few months as a result of helping them build their new computer. Within the group of us online we are all fine with the age differences.

    In real life one of my friends went out with someone who was 4 years younger. Everyone called him a peso and stuff. I don't see the problem. Though. My average friend age is about 2 years older.

    I find you often meet the biggest age differences online, seeing as age is often not the first thing you ask about. Therefore you often end up making a connection before knowing age, really proving that age is but a number.

    Going out with is a bit different, but would you say having a friend 5 or 10 years younger is strange?

    Friends would be a bit strange. Relationship is fine.

    But don't you have friends significantly older than you? Is it strange for them?

    A bit like marriage, it appears to me that as one gets older (from people who I know) age difference in friends makes a lot less difference to them.

    So how big an age gap is there between you and your friend (and what age are you)? And feel free to add anything else, like whether you think the relationship is weirder or perhaps more special.
    hmm im young for my year so bar one mate its mainly older lads from my school crew

    in college its all older people again

    work only

    yep pretty much always older:P

    prefer to have more younger friends..as younger gurls more datable
