    Interesting topic.....

    As a guy, I wouldn't want to marry someone too much older than myself... two or three years.

    But in the same respect, I don't want to marry a gal too much younger than me either; again, two or three years.

    I think it depends on each person's maturity level.

    But, honestly, if they are old enough to be your parent, that's too old(18+).

    I say she should go for it any way if she's comfortable with it. Just expect a little harsher reaction from those close to her.
    I am sure that her closest family and friends WILL be a little bit harsher, but I know them pretty well, and they're pretty cool people, for the most part. If the relationship gets off the ground, they'll be able to see how happy she is, and I think they'll probalby be cool with it in the end, because what they really want for her is happiness... Once they see that he can bring that to her as easily as some young strapping 25 year old stud, they'll come around... (My guess, anyways)

    It's all about being with a person that makes you happy. And if someone makes you happy then a good friend will be happy for you regardless of their personal opinion of the situation.
    Oh... I'm all for it... I'm happy for your sister in law.

I do think everyone can get past it... and if not... that's their problem... but I do think that it's important to note if she was worried what everyone thinks.

    Thanks everyone!

    I showed her what you all had to say... and I think she's going to go for it. She really likes him, and is pretty sure he likes her back, and that's all that really matters in the long run. When they're together, the difference doesn't really show... they have a great time, conversation is smooth, and they are very comfortable together.

    I think she was just worried that everyone would see it as some sick, twisted thing... but after this thread, full of a bunch of strangers who think it's cool, I don't think she's gonna worry anymore...

    Wow, dude. That's...


    ...INCREDIBLE!

    To me, age is just a number. I have found that I don't mind dating women that some people would say are "significantly" older than me. I went out with a woman who was nearly 20 years my elder when I was 23. I enjoyed it. Let's just say there's definitely something to be said for experience.

    That being said, the reason that it didn't work is because there wasn't a whole lot in common between us, after we got past the initial attraction. We didn't share very many interests... so in the long run, I see myself ending up with a girl closer to my age. It's fun for a while though.

    On the other hand, I tend to avoid women that are much younger than me. I'm 27, and unless she and I were like soulmates love at first sight whatever... I'd feel dirty dating a girl that just turned 21. Call me weird.

    My opinion, not that it is much of one is that if she is an adult and they are both okay with it: Go for it. I mean itd be different if say she was 16-17 and he was an adult, becuase then she wouldnt even be considered an adult yet, but my take on it is that once you reach say 20, anythin is alright if YOU and that person are cool wit it, everyone else doesnt really matter do they? Its not much different than say a white person an a black person were together, if they are cool wit it who cares what others think. (I am not trying to make a big deal out of the latter, I honestly feel it is up to the people in the relationship)
