LIFESTYLE: How Does Age Affect Your Choice Of Partner?

Is LOVE the only factor when it comes to partner choices for you? This question has been lingering in my mind for sometime now.  Everyone seems to have an idea of what they want in a person when it comes to relationships, but the reality is that people often settle for far less than what they had in mind.

Choosing a life time partner entails a lot, status, tribe and most importantly age. Others will also say the most determining factor is love and happiness-I side with them to an extent.

Does age really matter to you in a relationship? I will like to pour out my take on this issue before I proceed to ask you what you think about this.

For me age has a very important role to play when it comes to choosing who I want to grow old with, I like my man to be a bit older than me, 3-5yrs older. My reason being that I think exceptionally old men will abuse their younger partners because they feel they should have the final say.

On the other hand men who are too young have come up as not being matured enough to settle down. For instance a 24 year old woman in her final year dating a colleague around her age is likely to want to settle down after school. The guy will be also looking to start a life at that stage.  In this case, the guy may not even have a job, not to even think of settling down with you

I agree perfectly that love should matter in every relationship but age should be given prominent consideration.

Are you one of those who have age principles? Does age have the final say in your choice of partners? I have a friend who will never date men older than her, even if they are a day older than her by a minute. She likes her partners young!

Where do you stand when it comes to age and choice of partner?

    @27calibre (O_0 ),Thats loud and clear but how would you deal with Your partner being from a linguistic groups, 
    And does height play an issue in your life or complexion an issue

    Age def. plays a major role in every relationship..Age has a lot to do what with the mindset.A guy who is 10 yrs much older than a girl might tend to be bossy….he will tend to find fault in most of the things you do or might even call it childish.

    I don’t think it should matter but sadly society makes it a taboo they limit everything by age especially love   What does it matter you don’t choose who you fall in love with it just happens.

    @Adjoa Nbaaso),Let me ask you this do you find mature man better than guys your Age? And what makes you think that a guy who is ten years older than you is more bossy, have you expierence it before?  You also stated that age has allot to do with mindset why do you think so cause I have read books witness people who are married and respect each other and treat each other equal no matter the age difference so why do you think so miss Adjoa

    @Miyagi, Well there is nothing more exciting than living life one step at a time.younger guys would want to have fun for sometime before getting serious whiles older ones would wanna get serious because they have already had that fun.There are disadvantages for both thou!(there are still some young good guys out there)Age has a lot to do with the mindset because a 2yr old girl thinks differently from a 20yr old.At the age of 40, lots of people would want to take life seriously.Someone who use to be a party addict would look back and think he/she was a fool by then.Dont get me wrong, there are tones of couples who have big gap when it comes to their ages, yet they still live a happy life BUT those are handful.What is more fun than being on the same page with ur partner when it comes to what u wear, fun and even choice of foods.You dont want to get married to a 50yr old woman, do you?

    @Adjoa Nbaaso), naa, i think it depends how intelligent ur partner is, if he is intellectual n he loves u i think fins will be fine. My hubby is 10ys older than me, we r both educated, we understand n respect each other, he does mistakes, i do mistakes, we apologize n forgive each other…. i fink when u love each other n respect each other tht bossy issue wouldnt take place….

    IMO, among the things that should be considered in relationships,age shouldn’t make that list. A lot of people have let good things pass by them just because of a common number.We as a human race have really wounded ourselves with sum fractional believes.

    Yes for me age matters will it comes to relationships. I will never date any girl that is below 18ys, reason being is that, I’m a social worker, an activist, a global change marker, an agent of change and a behavioural change communicator preaching and shouting about early marriage, teenage pregnancy etc. So therefore, I will to see myself being a perbetrator for these crimes.
