How much is too much? Have you ever liked someone, but held back because of a difference in age? What do you think is a good age range to stay within in order to maintain a "healthy" relationship?

wpc56 saidVery important.
I mean if I start dating someone who talks about Harry Potter -> Twilight -> into Bieber, I'll kill myself....
Older guys always have more "power" in relationship because they have more experience and know how to manipulate the younger partner.
But hey, this is under the assumption you're looking for an equal and not a daddy. (nothing wrong with that)
SkinnyBitch saidVERY important. If I'm with a guy that's not at least 6 years older than me, I have a hard time calling him Daddy.
Larkin_PLR saidI heard this arithmetic from a sibling one time and it's actually been pretty useful for me. Whoever is the oldest, they're allowed to date someone half their age +7 years. Any gap larger than that becomes weird and you can't really have a good dating relationship (for all the reasons age difference makes a difference).
I think it's pretty useful so far for me... Age differences smooth over the older one gets and the gap doesn't seem so huge when you're floating into your 50s and 60s. Early on the gap matter much more.
