Dating Romantic

Age is just a number

It's not about age, but what should be most important is how you connect mature in purpose and when you can do that then you can override other things. Dating someone who is your age or a few years older or younger is considered normal. Dating someone who is at least a decade younger is considered robbing the cradle and dating someone quite older then your intentions might not seem completely innocent. Girls tend to cope better by marrying or dating someone older than them. For men, it's someone younger than them.

Age is just a number as long as both parties involved understand of legal age and that going foward one might not be able to provide something that maybe someone of the same age would have been able to provide.For instance, one might provide maturity and may not be able to provide too much power in the bedroom. As long as both parties have an agreement, and meet requirements of each one, then age is just but a number.

We've been brought up in a society that dictates a certain direction that needs to be taken and it doesn't mean that it's correct but it means that it's the accepted normal. Acceptability does not mean it's perfect or it's the right way to follow. It's about the norm and the norm doesn't mean it's perfect with the right thing ,it's just the accepted.Society has dictated age groups fit to marry or date each other but that doesn't mean it can't be broken to allow everyone to choose what they want for themselves without thinking of what the society will say.

The following are some of the dating tips one might follow regardless of age difference.

a) Find someone who has a heart to forgive and forget your shortcomings.

b) Find someone who is responsible, able to take care of himself/herself and is potentially trustworthy.

c) Find someone who makes you happy, support and appreciate you always.

d) Find someone whom you will be free with and be yourself.

e) Don't settle for anyone who never see anything good in you.

f) Don't make the search for a relationship the center of your life. Keep your life balanced and happy always.

Have fun! The less pressure you put on yourself, the happier you will be with yourself and the more easily you will create a space to attract the right kind of people for you.
