Kim Kardashian has finally responded to the stream of rumors suggesting that she is interested in dating 16-year-old Justin Bieber.  The rumors started after Kardashian told George Lopez that, after pairing up with Bieber in a suggestive photo shoot for Elle Magazine, she would “definitely” date the pop star if he were 18.  But Kardashian wants to make it clear that she’s not interested in the teen, Starpulse reports.  “I’m almost 30, this is illegal, this is disgusting.  He’s a cute kid and that’s it.  But for the record, I am not dating Justin Bieber and I would not date Justin Bieber.”Should you date someone older or younger than you?

Cupid’s Advice:

For the most part, you shouldn’t let age difference keep you from getting involved with someone.  Cupid has some tips on how to deal with age difference while dating:

1. Listen to yourself: Don’t let other people’s judgments keep you from dating someone of a different age.  Pay attention to how you feel, and tune out the naysayers.  Do what makes you comfortable.

2. Age is nothing but a number: Most people date someone who is in or near their same emotional, physical, and professional stage of life.  If your partner is ahead of you in one of those areas,you can help him or her grow.  It’s a win-win.  Let him keep you young!

3. There is a limit: In Kim Kardashian’s case, dating Justin Bieber is illegal.  Breaking the law to date someone doesn’t help matters, and it adds a negative element to your relationship that you just don’t need.  Take a minute to think over your relationship.  Can you see a future with a much-older or much-younger partner?
