Good question ... I think it's definitely something that becomes less important over the years. I also think there are differing gender standards for various reasons -- including the fact that women generally want to settle down earlier than men. Dating a 27 or 28 year old, for example, would bring a lot of hard n' fast marriage pressure.

There's also the very real problem of generation gap, where neither person will have any idea what bands, movies, pop culture whatever the other's talking about. It might seem insignificant (blah blah blah who cares love will find a way), but there's a lot that comes with shared experience.

Experimental Formula: floor((Age - 18) / 5) + 2 = max age difference

I tried your formula last night and I ended up with a 140 years old woman, you forgot to put PI !!!!

No seriously, my friend's sister (17 years old, soon to be 18 I think) is dating a 28 years old guy... it just doesn't sound right to me.

Like you say, it varies depending on where you are at in life. I'm 32 and my girlfriend is 22. Sometimes right now I feel like 22 isn't mature enough for me. But in another 5 - 10 years maybe not.

Also older women are awesome if they are hot. <img src=smilies/liefde.gif>

I heard the formula "half your age + 7" somewhere, and it seems to be pretty reasonable.

My mother spent 3 years dating a guy starting from the time when she was 52 and he was 28. I wouldn't say that the relationship crashed and burned in the worst way imaginable, but it was still pretty ugly in the end. I wouldn't recommend trying anything similar to anyone.

They were pretty happy at first, though.

It was still kind of weird for me - I was 17 when they started dating. The guy could have been my brother. In fact, my mom was older than his mom by 2 years.

Yeah, love fucks things up.

I've only dated women who were close to my age. The oldest is 2 years older than I am, and the youngest is 13 days older. I'm still with the younger one and have been for two years.
Bear in mind, I am only 20, and I've only dated 4 people. <img src=smilies/retard.gif>
