Dating and max age gap

It might be easy to think of a very attractive 25-year-old man or woman saying, “I can date whomever I want, and I only want people who are within two years of my age either way.” While any person is free to do what they like when looking for a relationship, is it to the benefit of the searcher to cast in such a narrow fashion?

Like it or not, there are ages and individuals who feel that their value in the dating world is so high that they can have success with a very narrow set of criteria.

The age gaps spanned anywhere from 10 to 14 years, with women in their late 40s and early 50s enjoying relationships and/or marriage with men in their late 20s or 30s. Couples in this situation had to address the fertility concern head-on, with some choosing to take the leap relatively quickly while others took a pass.

And then there’s also the concern about one’s looks.

■ Person 1 is 24 years, 9 months, 7 days old, while Person 2 is 20 years, 4 months, 26 days old.

This is a rule with far origins in regard of the social acceptance of a big relationship age gap.
