    Is 22 and 30 too much of an age gap? The guy is 24 but mature and the woman is 32 but keeps fit (runs and lifts weights) and acts young.

    What does keeping fit have to do with anything?

    If the two people in the relationship are comfortable and of age then nothing else matters.

    In short, no. Age is irrelevant if you want to be with someone (providing its legal)

    because some people say that people become less attractive/out of shape as they age.

    Nope its perfectly fine, although you are at different stages. Does the woman want kids> her biological clock would be ticking. Doubt the guy is mature at 24.

    Why does anyone care what "some people" think or say? If he thinks she's attractive (even if she decides she's sick of "keeping fit") that's all that matters.

    Yea some people prefere to just date their own age but there are quite a few large age gaps thinking about it my cousin is in his 30's dating a 24 year old girl. I suppose you can relate more to your own age though.

    No she doesn't want to go through pregnancy and all that. If someone doesn't have a reasonable level of maturity after being alive 24 years they must be slow! He's more mature than her but then these days people don't grow up till about 40.

    We have different ideas about maturity. Its fine they should give it a go and see what happens.
