    When we’re kids, we change a lot during 1 year but as adults it doesn’t make a lot of difference.

    what do u think of a relationship between girls who r a year older than the guy? Few years older?

    Is it an old tradition that guys should be older?

    Just wondering

    accordin to human instinct, girls prefer older men cos older men generally r more financially secure and can care after the offspring...
    but... Not anymore...

    There's a test which was published in FHM (thank you A level art notice board) to get the ideal gap age for a relationship. Apparently you should take the man's age, half it, then add seven. Therefore a 22 year old male should be going out with a 18 year old. It gets pretty crazy when you start to work out that a 54 year old woman should date 94 year old men but it does stop paedophilia....

    Well, just to show you that tradition doesnt matter my mum (aged 50) and my step dad (aged 32) have been together for 12 years, and are completely in love and happy. though they do get alot of 'toy boy' comments.

    so no i dont think an age gap matters at all, whether the man is older or younger.

    Age shouldent matter but unfortunalty in the public eye is does. Im 18 and i took a 16 year old girl for a drink today, she is my friend and friends are our only intention. However the looks i recieved in the cafe suggested others thought differently. Its a real shame that conclusions are drawn so quickly about people in modern society.

    16 and 18?! That isn't even that much of an age gap and people were commenting! They should have seen me with some of the fellas I've been with- my last was old enough to be my dad! We were very happy together, but split up becuse my mum didn't like him, everyone was making comments, all this other stuff, it just got too much. I think people see a young lad and an older woman worse than a young girl and an older fella, it goes against the old popular beleifs.

    Honestly, I don't think it matters, as long as the couple involved are happy then it doesn't matter what people think! :love:

    "Relativity" and "proportionality" are the watchwords, in this instance.

    Women age quicker, so if the man is older, he will be less likely to have affairs with younger women.

    That was a joke btw :tomato:

    women are sexually at their peak at 40 and men at 18 (read it somewhere). so age difference doesn't matter according to scientists in America

    My boyfriend is 34, he should be with a girl 24 according to your FHM source. I'm 23 so it's not that far off, but we've been together for 5 years, so that means when we met and he was 29 I was still supposed to be 22 (21 and a half). Basically, (and not to get all feminist on you or anything) women have an expiration date and it's almost impossible for a woman over 50 to find a man who is still potty-trained. Thank you for this lovely thought that I am hurtling towards unattractive old age at many times the rate of a man...

    I'm glad this is here because is sort of relates to my problem (and saves me creating a thread). Theres this girl I kind of like and she resentally became single. Her friends know I like her and have arranged to see if will go out with me. The problem is that I'm 19 and she is 15. This would also be my first serious relationship ever.

    What do you guys think?

    hmmmmm 15. To be honest, that is rather young. You must think carefully: is the ass great? what about the rack? face even? Then take into consideration maturity. You're in uni/on the dole, she's in school, she is at the prime superficial, shallow age....... Suppose younger girls are easier, the whole older guy he can drive thing..... go for it

    age difference...thats a tricky one. well i went out with a guy a year younger than me for a while and i have to say that was a bit weird...i definatley prefer guys who are older than me BUT not a lot older than me, a year max. i have a lot of male friends who have girlfriends who are 2 years younger, and they have problems sometimes with relating to their problems/experiences. for example "oh GCSEs are so hard" and my male friends are itching to say "well actually..."
    i also have a female friend who goes out with men a LOT older than her and she always seems happy and secure. so i think... when the man gets in to the twenties and the woman is 18/19 then any age difference is okay. but before that you have to be careful. 15/19 doesnt sound as big an age gap as 21/31 but realistically, it is just as large.

    i agree. i mean, a younger fit girl is better than a same age/ older munter. and they are easier i must agree. sometimes maturity is a problem, but most girls i know my age havent changed physically since they were 13/14 (im 17) so physically it isnt always a problem.
