Many people may say that age is a state of mind.You are as old as you feel.That is an upbeat and optimistic approach to ageing, however my question is if that applies when it comes to relationships?

I tell my boyfriend I love him every day sometimes twice a day. There are times when I will send him a special email that tells him how much I love him and what he means to me. I also set the banner on his cell phone to "I love you XOXO" so every time he opens his phone he sees that I love him. He did the same to mine so I'm reminded of his love all the time.

oh my gosh i responded to the completely wrong discussion! This one is about age...I don't think age is a matter when it comes to a relationship. I have a friend who is 25 and dates women who are in their 40's. He says they just have more in common than he does with women our age. I think if you are able to establish a connection with someone age doesn't matter.

I'm in a relationship right now were my gf is older then me, still I find it no differences as long as you understand each other and accept each other. I love her more each day and wants to spend my life with her. I learn a lot too her especially how to handle life and the challenges in life.How to take problems and just think of solutions not the problem it self. I think in a relationship you learn at the same time and you grow together no matter what age is it. As long as you love each other. Have a nice day!

Thanks dear for sharing your opinion and experience.Men have dated and married younger woman and this is very common.But it is not so common the other way round, however, time has changed.Nowadays it has become cool to date the older women and you are absolutely right if the two people understand each other ,accept each other then the age factor is just nothing compared to love you are sharing with each other after all it is just about number difference then relationship can work out smoothly.

I agree that age is a state of mind. But, I dated a man that was in his 80's and I am 56. Friendship was a given. It is when he started getting serious that I gave it second thought. I have taken care of my children and I have taken care of many terminally ill people. But, I am drawing the line at a relationship that starts out on the wrong foot. You know the foot I am talking about.... "one foot in the grave, and the other foot on a slippery bank. I want some good years before I start changing those Depends. I am not going into a relationship with exam gloves on. Okay, so maybe I am being a little harsh here, but the truth has to come out sometime.
