I, at 40, would never even consider a 25 year old, but that's just me. Just take a little extra time to make sure it is actually the right person before throwing everything into it.
I really think she is worried about what other people will think.
The reason why I ask this is because i am a 30 year old male that is having problems finding dates. Everythings open to interpretation and everyone has a different opinion.
I do not consider myself bad looking, but god i must be grr..no,no 1/2 your age 6!! It all depends on the persons maturity level,age should'nt even come into the equation.
30 is okay though to answer the question, and i would go out with our hot author up there.... One thing to think about is doing things with each other's friends as a couple.
Priorities and attitudes between 30-35 and 20-25 year olds can be a bit different.
