After all, dating is just dating-- it's only when you're serious that age differences have real significance,
I guess I've never really seen the point in dating without being serious about it.
I thought I would be that way, and I'm sure I will again. I didn't think I'd even be dating again this soon but it's kind of a nice distraction, as long as it doesn't get too complicated. Dating without being serious about it is just kinda ... fun.

Oh, absolutely! Hubby loves to torment me with "Wow, when you were starting university I was 12!" My response is always...Ewwwwww!
Same age difference, and I love to give that to my partner, too. It's rather fun to see her squirm with the uncomfortableness.

I...feel I've missed a bit here. Not surprising considering I do not frequent this board as much as I used to. Am I to understand that you are no longer married?

And I took "dating" to mean something different from "going to the movies with".

How you doin'?


The first 'boy'friend I took home to my parents turned out to be two months older than my dad - And even after we split up he continued to be a friend of the family: a pal to dad and a confidant to mum -and- a friend to me.

Re: Dating Range?

My range isn't really all that set. Until I was about 20 I just dated whoever was willing, but that tended to be people pretty close to my age or younger and a couple women in their mid 20s who didn't realize how young I was at the time. Then for a while in my early 20s I tended to attract 17-19 year old after 17-19 year old until at 26 I essentially swore off anyone under 21. Today, at 27, I would give anyone a shot between 21 and 35 or so. I'll be finally finishing school in the next couple years and would optimally like to have a couple years with someone before having the kid(s) I'd like to have somewhere before my late 30s.

In this, teacake and I are of one mind. If Patrick Stewart asked me out on a date, I'd accept right on the spot. It's the voice. I swear to all the gods that ever were, that voice does something to my brain. Also, other things.

Surprisingly, my knees don't melt at a Scottish accent. English, yes, Irish, yes, Scottish? Nope.

Wait! One exception to that rule: Have I already mentioned my willingness to have sex with Ewan McGregor? If not, then I have just now.

Yes it is. That's why I wrote about the other one being "compatible" with me, as in - be on a similar level of maturity. Numbers are irrelevant to me.

Re: Dating Range?

After some thought, I've come to the conclusion that I'm unable to answer this question.

I'm at a point in my life where I'd be so overjoyed just to find a nice girl who loved/liked me enough to date me, I don't think age difference would be a thought.
