    It’s important to keep the following in mind; (most) relationships fail! If they did not the majority of us would be married to our high school sweethearts! There is no reason to get caught up on age differences when in fact the odds are the relationship was not going to last a “lifetime” even if you were the same age! Live for today!
    People often say of mixed age daters; “What do you have to talk about?” as if everyone runs around talking about eras gone by. If this were the case you would never see young and older co-workers forming friendships in the workplace. Most conversations have to do with likes and dislikes, upcoming events, news events, disappointments, weekend plans, TV shows, movies, weather, where to eat…etc The majority of people choose to live their life in the (present) and not in the past.
    Another assumption is the older person whether it is a woman or man is going to dictate the terms of the relationship or be controlling. Even a child knows how to say “yes” and “no”.
    The only “real concern” with relationships that have a major age difference have to do with health issues. A 25 year old dating a 45 year old may not notice any major differences especially since quite a few people work out and utilize various beauty methods to maintain their appearance. However if said couple got married they are likely to face some health challenges when one of them is 45 and the other is 65. According to the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists the average 65 year old takes nearly fourteen prescriptions a year. The American Journal of Medicine conducted a study in 2009 which stated medical debt was the contributing cause in in 62% of personal bankruptcy filings.

    Age is a factor in most relationships the problem is when one gets older and has a much younger partner things can change in many ways, such as likes and dislikes, conversations, spending time together and so on.  Love can change for one another if the relationship lacks communication and quality spent together, especially if the couple is not doing much together.
