    ...or at least so I was told. Apparently (according to my friends extremely knowledgeable girlfriend) something is wrong with me for messing around with a girl who is only 21 when I am 27.

    I am not aware of the social limitations when it comes to age, so let me add these facts:

    21 year old has a child, some fancy finance job, and a mortgage.

    27 year old rides bikes down the side of ski mountains for fun.

    So, who is the adult in this scenario anyway?

    Uhm, not sure why I posted any of this...I figured you guys would have something funny to say.

    If she's got a kid, you know she'll put out?

    Maybe you can talk your friend's girlfriend into a 3-some to try and change her mind.

    tell her that you both are consenting, responsible(maybe?) adults so it is none of her business and then tell your friend that he needs to keep his pimp hand strong.

    9 out of 10 RM experts agree that a 6 year age difference is perfect if you are planning on PIIHB.

    Younger chicks bug me.

    My brother-in-law dated a 24 year old Playmate when he was 36. He was my hero for about 6 months until she turned out to be as psycho as she was hot.

    the social acceptability of that statement depends entirely on your age.

    you 18 + girl 10 = not good

    you 30 + girl 22 = ok

    you 20 + girl 29 = ok

    you 10 + girl 19 = weird

    :D

    I can't believe it took this many posts to get to the :picsstfu:

    I don't care about age differences much either. The only time I find it strange is when the girl/guy is not "legal" and the adult male/female is an authority figure (i.e. teacher, etc).

    My thoughts exactly.

    I'd snag me a 21yo if she didn't annoy the crap out of me.
    What am I saying? It doesn't matter. My GF is 31 and annoys the crap out of me.

    my rule is always half your age plus 7 and if you're on an odd year always round up...so that puts you right at 21

    not an issue of age, but one of maturity and "phase of their life" type of thing. if she were going into her senior year of college living off of mommy and daddy's credit cards, that'd be a bit weird. but if you're both (kinda) responsible adults, who cares?

    I don't see how your comments apply to 'dating'? If he is looking for a seriously, possibly lifelong, relationship, then yeah, you give great advice.

    But once a person's 18 in the US, does it matter if the other person's 80yo?

    Conversely, there are a few monkeys here (RideRMB?) who are 14yo. He seems incredibly mature and intelligent. Would it be okay for him to date a 22 yo?

    (please don't think I'm attacking you, just discussing)

    Your friend's GF should STFU and pay attention to her own life.

    Ah, I don't think my e-sarcasm was strong enough with my initial post. I was really more going in the 'my friends gf is a stupid bitch' direction than anything.

    In fact, I guess nobody filled her in that the last girl my friend dated seriously was somewhere in the 17 range (he was 23 at the time) :)

    After I became divorced at 27 the first woman I hooked up with was 18.

    I know.


    Years later I saw her on a TV reality show.

    No, I won't say which one.
