The long and the short of it is that very few people have the same things in common when they have that much of an age gap. A 19 year old woman is not looking for the same things outta life as a 40 something man. Sure, law of averages says that a compatable coupling could occur, but the odds are pretty slim.

So yeah, you can date that young and have fun and what not, but the odds of finding anything that will last are pretty slim. I mean, you don't go looking for wine in the grape juice isle.

And my rule was no long term thing with anyone who is five years younger. But that was just me.

see, I don't think its fair to say that the 19 year old and the 43 year old are looking for different things. Maybe they both want a serious relationship. Maybe they both want sex. Who's to say? I can see saying on average they want different things, but individuals are individuals.

Five years difference seems like way too little to me. I mean, I'm 33, and I certainly can see myself dating a 23 year old or a 43 year old.

Yes they can want the same broad generalities, but i find that they want alot of differnet "specifics." Things like traveling, relocation, stable jobs, children and what not all factor into what it means to have a "serious relationship." I have found that not alot of people in those varying age groups are looking for the same specifics. Doesn't mean it couldn't happen, just means that it is less likely. So If i am dating a nineteen year old, I am not really looking for it to last forever. I mean, it could, but the odds of that are significantly slimmer than if I was dating a 27 year old.

well, to be fair, I could say that a 43 year old might not want those things. Maybe he's just looking to have fun. But there are certainly some 19 year olds who do want nothing more than to settle down into a serious relationship.

I'll grant you the statistics pointing to averages being more likely one way or the other, I just don't think its so set in stone that one should make a hard fast rule.

Oh, I don't make a hard and fast rule abou tit. But as i said, you don't go looking for wine in the grape juice aisle. If you happen to find it there, so be it, but you really don't expect it to be there.
