Cupid’s Advice:

When we fall for someone, we are smitten to the extent that we do not notice the other’s flaws right away. Or rather, we choose to ignore them. Here are some tips on how to tell if an age difference is going to be a problem:

1. On the same page: One of the biggest complications with dating someone older or younger is the fact that the two of you may be on different pages. If the two of you are in different aspects of your life, then perhaps it is going to be harder to connect to one another.

2. Age is just a number: If the statement “age is just a number” runs true for you, then it should not be a problem for you at all. After all, you are the one who is dating someone older or younger than you, so you have to appreciate the age difference.

3. Comfort is key: Are you comfortable with dating someone older or younger? At the end of the day, if it bothers you then it is not going to work out. If the difference does not impact you, then you’re in the clear.
