ok.. so my current gal is 3 years older than me.. the question here is.. does age difference really matter when it comes to love? do you really have to consider age of the people involved before loving them?

Its not the age that you are dealing with,, but its the attitude of your partner, how far is your generetion gap tells hoe misunderstandings you will encounter towards ur relationships but as long as you love each other, there's no problem with that bacause for sure you will work things out..=)

That age gap is no big deal. Anything under a 15 year difference I feel is ok. So don't freak out about it. If you care about the person love it and do it!

Age is just a number. If you 2 love each other then it does not matter if she is 3 , 13 or 23 years older.

i aint saying that age difference matters.. i was saying that there is this misconception among people that age difference has a lot to do with how 2 people interact.. cze it's a difference of not just age.. but experience.. opinions.. thinking.. etc.. although i totally agree with you!

if the love you have for each other is nothing but true, then i guess you don't need to look for things which can probably give you some second thoughts on your relationship... age is just some number which has nothing to do with feelings... in fact, I have a neighbor who has been married to a woman who is 15 years older than him...they have been happily married for ages now...age really should not be an issue when it comes to love...:)

man, 3 years is not enough to even consider it an age gap or much of an age difference, if people who are 15 years apart can be happy together, then 3 years is nothing. what's more important is if your emotional and intellectual wavelength matches, not the age, because your real age or your emotional age, maybe different from actual numbers, that's just the body's age, some people are more mature at their age, mentally, and some people are less mature, so the number age doesn't really matter, especially a difference of three years.

no, age does not matter. it is really just a number. i think being compatible and being mature about issues matter more. you can be 10 yrs younger than your partner and yet have the maturity of your partner. chemistry is also important.

Age is just a number my friend. I don't look my age and certainly don't act my age. I am responsible and work hard but I simply refuse to grow up. Rarely do I date men my own age, to me they seem self centered and too into themselves to be able to care about someone else. I see no reason why an older man and younger woman / older woman and younger man can't date or get into a relationship. Age is a number ...

I believe that age is a number, and what really matters is your maturity level and that you really love each other. I am engaged to a man who is 10 years older than me, and I couldn't be happier. I've dated lots of guys who were the same age as me in the past, but this one is by far the best relationship I've ever had. I figure he's not old enough to be my dad, so I'm ok with it! I think if we get too caught up with things like age, then we just end up limiting ourselves and maybe missing out on something really great.

I've gone out with a man alot older then me and the age differance didn't affect me. But others around me thought I was crazy and gave me a hard time. I would only be concerned with an age differance for the long run. While one person is in their prime, another person could be more on the senior citizen end of things.
