Things to ask in dating

Alexa takes this rather rude question in stride, replying that, “I am weightless, like a cloud. She and Paul married anyway, and over time the difference in maturity dissipated. While I don't think it's important to adhere to an arbitrary formula when considering age in a potential relationship (interestingly, when I met Kevin our age difference was exactly this ratio), I think it can be a good rule of thumb to help you consider if your relationship is appropriate.(A 37 year old dating a 25 year old is different from a 30 year old dating an 18 year old.) I often tell people that Kevin and I met at the perfect time."I had surpassed him in some areas — I had been in the workforce for 12 years when we met and held leadership positions in church." I had similar concerns when I met Kevin.From our first conversation, I could tell he was very mature for his age. Once I learned his actual age, I was concerned that he might not be ready to settle down and have a family, when I definitely was.

He had graduated from college two months earlier, so we were both in the workforce fulltime.Even though Kevin didn't have as much life experience as I did, our daily lives basically looked the same.Also consider how you get along with the person’s friends, because these people will also be part of your life.Johanna said she found it a bit awkward to connect with her boyfriend, Paul’s, friends, even though he was only three years younger. I felt removed from their age and current life stage," she says. A friend once told me that the acceptable age difference was half the older person's age plus seven.If he had still been a "college kid," I might have had a hard time feeling like we were equals.
