Age does matter, if you fancy someone ten years younger than you, the chances are you’re a pervert!
If your 24 and are seeing someone who is 19, that’s fine. If you are 24 and are seeing someone who is 16 (Legal though it might be) you’re a pervert and need locking up.

I think that if there a small gap up to 15 years different that is ok, over would be so wierd, it would be like dating you dad of something.
I think that if you are stronly in love the person, nothing else is a problem. Who cares what other people think, you feel comfortable with your partner that you are safe and happy. Love is what matter for sure.
I haven't really been out with many guys, so i don't really much experience but all i can give is my thoughts.

Hmm... people with a large age gap dating...
I can't really say that I approve of it, but that isn't for me to decide. I hear stories about young people getting married to people 3 times their age for money, which I think is simply horrible. But if what they both feel is an honest, heartfelt and shared desire to be together, then who would I be to stand in their way?
If I marry, then I would want it to be for love. While I have a prefferd age range, it isn't set in stone. It would just depend on my feelings and what I want at that time.
So no. There isn't really anythong worng with it... but the bigger the gap, the greater the suspicion of foul play there seems to be.

I disagree hammer. My father is about 8 years older than my mother, and he's hardly a pervert. Now when you're 53 and in love with a 17 yr. old then it gets a little ridiculous, But age shouldn't be the thing you decide a relationship on. The love between the two for who they are is why you should want to be with them.

If an older person loves an under 16 year old, then they should wait untill the other was old enough (for sex, really). That's maturity, a bit of wisdom and definatly respect. If the under 16 refuses to see it that way then maybe she/he is probably not mature enough to be in the relationship anyway. That law is there for a reason...
Other than that, I don't see why any age gap is a problem. I think it was someone here who said real love does not discriminate.
