I think its somewhat of a choice for most people. But if you think of it practically, someone that is like more than 5 to 6 years older than the other in a relationship is not plausibly gonna work for the long term. I know there are a few exceptions to the rule. But generally speaking, someone that is like 10 years older than the other can be problematic in the sense that they both we brought up in entirely different time frames where things aren’t always the same. Then comes the all too important part where the ‘giving’ part comes into play. There is only so much that someone that is maybe 10 years older than you can give. I mean in every way.
I know I went a bit too deep into the matter. But like I said, keep it in the area of like 5 to 6 years older. And it would be okay. I am not saying that older is bad, but merely pointing out that there are certain things that are, well, love aside, is just plain obvious common sense in the part of choosing someone for a relationship.
