10 up, 5 down....that seems to be the consensus from others I've asked. For the most part, they've said that age is not terribly important -- that any two people can find love together -- but that they would not consider dating someone 10 years their senior and that 5 years younger is too young. Let's be fair, there's also a social component -- an 18yo dating a 33yo is not highly regarded and may not meet with the families'/communities' approval... So just how important is age difference in a relationship? What range are you comfortable with? What is 'acceptable' to you?
