Since we should be dating people with the long term in view, future concerns such as limited mobility, sickness, or even increased chances of ending up alone in your old age aren't something to laugh at.Couples should openly consider and talk about these concerns.By age 31, the commonly accepted age range difference can vary between anywhere from those aged 22 or 23 to those in their mid-40s. But, each year as we (hopefully) become another year wiser, we become more secure in ourselves and much more stable in our personalities.In fact, our psychological and physical development slows, meaning the mental gap between age groups narrows.Even if she were kidding, there is always at least a glint of truth in every sarcastic remark.
Certainly, a five-year age gap would have made a significant difference to both of us just a few years prior to that time.“Most guys I've met who are within one year or more younger than me refuse to consider me as a dating option. I thought that would change as I got older and they realized it was just a number and that a few years didn't make all that much of a difference. I find the whole situation frustrating and ridiculous.”I hope that this friend’s unfortunate experiences are the exception and not the rule.Either way, some misconceptions about dating apparently still need to be discussed and debunked.And you should seriously think about what you are willing to commit to on your own time. You need to make sure you have the endurance and ability to cover the miles.But remember: every person you date comes with baggage.The lyrics to an old TV sitcom—“Diff’rent Strokes” —often reminded me as I was growing up: “What might be right for you may not be right for some.”Many single men (LDS men included) supposedly go by this rule of thumb: “You can date someone who is half your age, plus seven.” As we get older, this allows for more flexibility in age gaps.
