Bob is going on a nude date with Natalie, who’s 24 and a really good sport about their 45-year age difference.She goes with the flow, rather literally, engaging in an alcohol-water gun fight with her near-septuagenarian suitor before they chill out in the ocean for some real talk. However cool it makes you is exactly how lame it makes him.

15 year old dating 24 year old-16

Are we just making it harder on ourselves by refusing to consider potential partners who are outside our age limits?

Or are the cultural similarities that occur between people of similar ages important enough to be deal-breakers?

Of course, if having children is in your plans and you’re a man, the age of your partner matters.

Finally, there’s also the impact of “the marketplace”.

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.

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?

These are all interesting questions that reflect a real change in the way people age and date.

There are certainly ways for older women to conceive children, but most men who want families tend to try and date women who are younger than 40.

Aside from that scenario, however, is there any reason that a 30-year-old woman can find love with a 37-year old and not a 44-year-old? Knowing that there are men of that age who are in great shape, physically attractive, interesting and successful is there a reason to categorically exclude these men? And while most people aren’t as attractive as these, it is certainly possible to meet someone significantly older who is sexy and attractive. Women in their 50’s will often narrowly restrict their dating range because they have a fear of meeting and falling in love with an older man – and then having to deal with his health issues.
