I think that to an extent yes age really does matter...I see no reason for a 45 yr old man to be dating a 15 yr old child...I see no reason a 35 yr old woman should be dating a 17 yr old boy....so age does matter to a degree when you look at it from that angle...but when both parties are adults then no I dont think age should matter

I don't think age really matter for people who are inlove with each other. Love is the most important thing in a relationship. Me and my boyfriend were of the same age. We're happy with one another. I have not been in any other age or relationship than with my love one until now.

As long as it's not to young I don't see a problem with a age gap. One of my ex boyfriends is like 21 I am 34 so that is kind of big I even ask him if he thought I was to old and he said no not at all.

No, age doesn't matter, age is just a number that is what my Mother always told me, May she rest in peace! If you really love someone it really doesn't matter.

i dont think age matters... if you love a person no matter how old or young he is nothing could change your feeling... its better not to think of the age gap but of what both of you fells... love sometimes is mysterious we wouldn't know who the guy for us... what we can do is to think twice and love ones... love and beloved... its the only thing you can do... dont be afraid to get hurt... anyway hurting and loving comes hand in hand... if you love a person you try to give yourself to him so in return whatever happens could change your life... its just that we have to accept it and learn to love and let go...

I dont think so... but maturity matter I guess. When you are in love and that person love you in return... you have to adjust to each others attitude and beliefs. You have to learn to respect, trust, believe and understand each other. there is no perfect relationship... you will experience some ups and down just like the others... but the love for each other and the will to make the relationship last means a lot. Age differs from maturity... there are lots of people I know who at the age of 40-50 are still immature and still does not have priorities in life... while there are people who at the age of 20-30 knows the meaning of responsibility. You see... you dont have to be old to mature... and you dont have to be young to act immature. In relationship maturity is very important. You have to be matures to adjust, understand, dream, become responsible, know your priorities... etc. I guess there is no age gap that is too big or too small as long as you love each other... not unless youre inlove with a toddler... thats a different thing... hahahaha!

Age gap doesn't matter, as long as you love each other, and respect each others decision.
