dating age differences What do you feel is an appropriate age difference while dating? Does it differ for guys and gals? How old is too old? Here are two scenarios to answer first, then elaborate on the subject as you feel necessary: 1. A guy dating a girl 10-12 years older. 2. A girl dating a guy 10-12 years older. Discuss. Edit: Monetary and security are not factors; the dating is based solely on compatability and general "like" of the person.
