Today’s post is on age, I’ve talked about the subject before but something happened today that threw me. A guy I had been chatting with off and on for a week sent me an email today saying he couldn’t date me because of the age difference. You see, he’d decided after a week that a 34-47 split was just too much it seems. I almost fell off my chair because to me age is simply a state of mind but it seems to others it isn’t.
It’s not like this particular 47 year old acted his age, from what I gathered in our conversations he was in great shape and seemed to be a true kid at heart so the whole thing kind of threw me. I couldn’t resist replying to him expressing my incredulity and reiterating what I have so far laid out here. To me age is really a state of mind, I’ve met some twenty year olds that have the maturity of 40 year olds and vice versa. I mean obviously because I want kids it is a factor to some extent, however, I never saw this coming.
I’m still a little in shock. Wow. What about you? Have you ever considered age to be a factor? Is it a dealbreaker for you if there is too big a split? Weigh in!
