What, according to you, is the maximum acceptable age difference in a relationship?

Anonymous 69546

Half your age plus 7 always seemed like a reasonable rule to me.

Anonymous 69548

10 years (as long as you're 21 or older), but I personally wouldn't want to go for more than 4-5 years
No it's dumb

I'm not going to turn down 20something dick when I'm in my 60s and neither should any of you.

The president of france has a gf who is 24 years older than him

how did she trick and use him so expertly?

Anonymous 69586

She was his teacher when he was a 15-year-old schoolboy. Frogs are degenerate scum.

5-7 for people over 18, if late teens (19 or 18) then anything under 16 is creepy

Anonymous 69651

now that i think about it, maybe 19 was a bit too much

Anonymous 69691

There's no maximum. If both are of legal age and there's no other illegal practices, then it's nobody's business.

I agree with them. It's also better than people trying to culturally enforce age gaps when it's unrealistic or unwanted generally speaking.

Man-older-than-woman model will a l w a y s be culturally encouraged, while the woman-older-than-man will always be discouraged, thus there's nothing wrong with criticizing the first. Those relationships often have power imbalances even bigger than relationships between peers, especially if the woman is younger than 25, because her brain isn't even fully developed, as I mentioned here >>69618
Legal doesn't mean ok. Slavery was legal once too. There was a time when the age of consent was 7 and 10 in most states, despite the fact that girls back then were maturing later than they do now.

"Brain isn't fully developed" isn't a synonym for "oh she is a poor babby who can't think for herself", because this is the exact way of thinking that kept us from working, voting, and having a right to be heard for millennia.
Yes, "legal" doesn't always mean ok, but the default legal here is modern civilized laws, not some backwards shariah.

Age difference doesn't automatically mean power imbalance as well. There is no safe way to spot an abusive douche, no matter the age.

And either way, it's none of your business to criticize others' relationships, no matter how they are viewed in society. Women under 25 are adult women who have a right to make choices, not babies for you to be nursed.

>I agree with them.
I appreciate it, but "with her", please, this is a female-only board.

Of course it is. We're social animals and every decision we make affects everyone else in the system.

No it's not, because despite thinking of women as "eternal children", males had no problem with fucking literal kids. You can't compare it.
You just sound like a typical liberal feminist who can't into class analysis.

Flash news, the world still does not revolve around you.

>You just sound like a typical liberal feminist who can't into class analysis.
But I can into common sense, which is already more that can be said about those who are screeching that women are literal babies until they hit 25.

Anonymous 69717

>the world still does not revolve around you

That's exactly why you should consider the social consequences of what appear to be personal decisions. I'm glad we agree!

Putting words in someone else's mouth won't make you win an argument.

5 if they're in their late 20s but 1 max if they're younger than that.

The difference between someone who is 45 and someone who is 50 is pretty minimal but the difference between someone who is 15 and someone who is 20 is huge. When people are younger, they should be dating someone who is at a similar stage in life to them. If you date someone who is still in school while you're in college, you can't relate to one another. I think it's a huge red flag when men date teenagers, it's like they're mentally stunted themselves if they're able to hold a conversation with someone who hasn't ever had a real job or who is in their first serious relationship. Seriously, what do you talk about at dinner (rhetorical question because they don't talk, men just want to pump and dump these young girls)?

Age difference creates a huge power imbalance. The younger person doesn't have the experience to pick up on red flags, they might be financially reliant on the older person, leaving the older person might render them homeless (especially since older people are more likely to have a stable income and might already even own a property) and from what I've seen irl, dating someone older cuts you off from your friends and family, so they wouldn't have the support system of someone who dates within their age group.


There's much, much more to a relationship than having a dick in you. Not really surprised it didn't work out for you. You post like you're trying to defend age gap relationships but everything you've posted about your own is so incredibly off-putting and has the opposite effect. It's like a cautionary tale against becoming you.

My parents are 10 years apart and even then I feel like they have a generation gap about a lot of things. I think more than that would be difficult.

Also think about if the couple are born on two sides of a big event/social change like the corona virus. They’re likely to have very different ideas about what’s normal even if their personalities mesh well.
