    Depends on the general age. I mean 25 and 30 is fine...16 and 21 might raise a few eyebrows.
    But I guess in general i'd say 3/4 years is about right when late teens/early 20's... But gets less important as you get older.

    But rally tough to say in general...because everyones different.

    A lot of girls have daddy issues, I've actually been rejected before because I wasn't +30. I think when I'm older I'm gonna have a lot of fun.

    See the good thing about college girls is, while you get older, they stay the same age!

    But most people go for people roughly the same age as them? Cos i'm guessing that usually works better.
    But as someone has said, love is love and you can't really control it. So if there is a large age gap, it isn't that bad.
    But if the girl is 16, and the guy is 22 or somthing, well maybe not.

    guys, wait till you are 40 and women your age look like ****.

    Then you'll start considering a 20 year age difference REAL normal and appropriate.

    If I fell in love with someone, their age wouldn't stop me from dating them, whatever it was. I may be far less likely to fall in love with a 90 year old than a 30 year old, but it is possible :dontknow:

    Right.. Because men always age wonderfully.. It's only the women that ever end up looking awful.

    I could link you to a bunch of "old" women who look better than most 20 year olds.. :rolleyes:

    ...And then be saddened to find that, unless you look like Jude Law, no attractive 20 year old girl will go near you.

    Thats ironic because jude law is real close to 40 years of age and you are still raving about him....

    that aside, i think hes a bad example, i'll take your opinion as a woman more seriously if you show some appreciation for masculinity....

    The problem is two fold. Due to hormone levels and biology women are degraded more by diet, sun,smoke, alcohol etc on top of this men are tuned in and far more sensitive to female aging, it's how we are wired. We can see it in the face and skin no matter how hot you try to keep the body. There is also more to a man, he is what he does not how he looks.....you should know that. But you know one minute it's about personality, then looks etc more like you have just given a knee jerk reaction to a comment that has hit you hard and want to combat it with whatever ammo you can find....

    Now lets look at this closely in a celebrity obsessive language you can understand. when was the last time a woman over 30 of years competed in miss world?.....i don't even think it's allowed.

    But last time i checked the current world heavyweight boxing champions were both over 35, one 40!! most decorated fighter in UFC retired at 47, current greatest ever(silva) is 36 and still going strong, not to mention a myriad of other sportstars that continue to succeed at older age. So you can see clearly that while women fail at even looking good beyond age 30, men retain real tangible capabilities and talent on top of looks. You'd probably have to go back to schwarzenegger to find a Mr Olympia winner under thirty years of age. of the top of my head of the last 4 winners wev'e got a 37 year old, a 38 year old and 40 year old in there!! On top of this we've got male actors, singers, models etc who became sex symbols AFTER age 30 and well beyond, the likes of daniel craig, hugh jackman, vin diesel etc. Look up the age of some of these stars you find so attractive and it basically proves my point. Look at the cast of an old soap or drama like melrose place....rob estes+grant show still hot. Heather locklear+daphne zuniga not.... in fact this **** is evident all over the show. Look at the proportion of women actively looking for significantly older guys, compared to the number of guys who want older women, basicaly 13 year old boys jacking off in their bedrooms....on that note lets take a look at the lifespan of a pornstar....you seen jenna jameson lately? this 36 year old FORMER adult entertainer and sex symbols face is falling off!! meanwhile peter north, TT boy, rocco sifredi, lex steele, wesley pipes and mr marcus are still laying hot pipe at 40+ years of age....but who said porn was for the girls anyways....

    I'll still have a six pack and veins in my arm bigger than most penises when i'm 40-50.

    That said in terms of relationship compatability maybe the younger girls aren't "mature" or "experienced" enough, if you count wasting your prime attractive years **** hopping and achieving nothing but becoming sluttier, older and fatter valuable experience....

    The most stable and loving relationships are between a woman and a man 7-15 years older than herself. Catch em while they're hot boys!!

    I don't think you quite get what irony is. :facepalm:

    Notice how I said unless you look like Jude Law. Very few 40 year olds do. 20 year old women are interested in dating 20-30 year old men, with only very few exceptions. Very rarely do 20 year olds date 40 year olds, with celebrities being the obvious exception (hence the Jude Law example). Do you understand now?

    why are you focused on jude law..? he has a receding hairline, sure he hasn't declined too much.....because he has nothing to lose but his hair babe. Please rebutt all the other evidence and pick a better a example. If your point is that jude law still looks like a little girl, then we are agreed, thats quite remarkable!!

    Now onto the rest of my post.....now wait it's conclusive you are wrong

    Way to miss the point completely. Why are you focused on Jude Law? :curious:

    To be honest, I didn't fully read the rest of that wall of text because it was long, rambling, and very poorly written. I felt kind of nauseous just looking at it. Sorry.
