Yeah, so I hope the uncreative title made you read this. Even though this has probably been done before, new people have probably joined since it has been done and I want to know some peoples opinions cause I've been noticing something. I've noticed that there's a lot of taboo with age and relationships. I mean, what's so messed up about going with someone 2 or 3 years younger than you? There's absolutely nothing wrong with it. Nothing perverted. But some people make a big deal out of it. If two people care about each other a lot then what does age matter? What do people think? Is it wrong to like someone a couple of years older/younger? What's the whole fuss about? What's the lowest/highest age you would go to in looking for a partner?

(I don't personally think this belongs in the relationship thread because I want to know peoples opinions on this topic.)

Well I think the pit has seen several stories concerning an 18 year male UGer and like an 11 year old girl. That's where the "taboo" comes from, and UG tends not to be a mature or understanding site. If the people at hand are like 18 and 16 then that's generally accepted. I wouldn't really worry about it dude...

^ i agree, if you want mature, realistic, and purely unsexual advice... comeon dude dont go to UG. let alone the pit...

sounds like the logic of a pedo...

i think pedo's are the number one cause of young girls becoming strippers/porn stars.

A gap of even two years doesn't seem right when the girl's as young as 13.

But when they're older, say like 16 that's alright.

My parents have a ten year age difference, but the older you get, the less it matters.

I suppose people dislike the idea of a 24 year-old seeing a 14 year-old, regardless of her maturity. However, if it was a 34 year-old with a 24 year-old, it wouldn't be an issue.

The difference between a 24 year-old and a 14 year-old in terms of innocence, maturity and naivety are a lot great than between a 24 year-old and a 34 year-old.

Let's just say that until both parties reach adulthood, it's frowned upon.

Oh, I wasn't exactly looking for advice. I was just wanting peoples opinions on it because I've noticed a lot of stuff about this (purely cause I know a lot of younger girls and stuff). But I don't need advice. Just opinions on it.

As long as shes not jailbait its ok. I think a lot of the guys on here are jealous cause the girls they like are dating 18 yearolds and not them.

Half your age + 7 is the minimum age to date. It sort of breaks down under the age of 13 though.

I'd agree with Smokey. My parents also have a 10 year age gap and there isn't any taboo once reach adulthood.

When you're in your teens and early twenties (basically still in school)- then it's kind of taboo because that maturity levels from grade to grade or school to school vary a lot. For instance, I went out with this girl all of my senior year, and then when I went to college and she became a senior, one of the reasons it fell apart was because in college, I had a lot of growing up to do and everything was a lot different than when I was in high school, and she couldn't see that because she didn't have any experience with it.

The difference in maturity can seem small, but a thirteen year old is still a thirteen year old and that thirteen year old probably has a less life experience than a sixteen or seventeen year old.

Basically +1 to Smokey.

And agreed on once you're both adults, it doesn't matter.

It's like Pokemon, it's unfair to fight a lvl 5 with your lvl 15


But using a Lvl 15 in a lvl 25 fine.

Most of the time there is taboo if the girl in question is younger, but it counts as score if the male is younger basicaly it's as follows:
Male 14 Female 18 Yay..............................................but Male 18 Female 14 then it is Nay

how old are you parents?? They probably have a gap of roughly 3~4 years if not more (sometimes less depending on persons)...

Yeah, this is exactly how I feel. Now what made me feel so weird, was that this 14 year old apparently was pretty attracted to me. (I saw her at a funeral, didn't talk to her she left before the dinner and crap. She found out who I was and traced down my number and we exchanged like 30 sms' over the weekend) Now I'm 15 turning 16 (She turned 14 this year) and I dunno, while she seemed like an extremley nice girl and was cute and pretty and stuff... I just, i just felt so weird thinking about getting together with her... (Hasn't happened yet, she lives in another town but might mover here so...) Should I feel so weird about this?

Same sorta thing happened while I was at Crete, saw a chick, think she noticed me (came on the same plane, stayed at the same hotel etc.) and at first I thought she was around my age. But one day she just looked so fucking young I was scared... Then I felt so bad for being attracted to her...
