I'm 26 atm and would probably date at most a 34 year old and least a 20 year old.
age is just a number - mentality is what i look for first, then personality, then sexuality!
im 24. i find it hard to date men younger than myself- not exactly in the same mindset or they are not brave enough for me (apparently im rather beautiful and intimidate men)
i often find men in their late 20s and early 30s a good suite- they are some what established and secure in themselves.
oh but more OT: umm 36ish . willing to bend for the right person.
You are talking about intellectual maturity. I'm talking about sexual maturity! When you are 15 years old your body and mind is prepared for reproduction and no mental or physical harm is going to come to you as you're by definition sexually mature and you're no longer a child in that aspect. <-- This is where i feel it stops being pedophilia.
The social aspects of a relationship(that you're arguing about) is not included here as it's irrelevant to the subject you were discussing before about pedophilia. To refresh your memory:to which a response was made:4 years in either direction.I'm 18.hence my comment about how a 15 year old has the same sexual maturity (body and mind) as a 25 year old and it should therefor not be called pedophilia, especially if both parts are under 20 years of age. Are we on the same page now? Otherwise i can't really be arsed.You sir are a sick pedophile.
To avoid further confusion i'll quote myself and explain exactly what i mean.By body i mean physically the same (vagina, boobs, hips) to actually accommodate a penis and eventually give birth to a child.a 15 year old has the same sexual maturity (body and mind) as a 25 year old
By mind i mean to be emotionally (reptilian brain/fuck part of brain) the same to be able to handle the traumatizing event of fornication and eventually the raising of a child.

Point being your soul knows no age limits, and when you find your soulmate - embrace it and to hell with what anyone else says (even his parents who originally called me 'the cradle robber' eventually came around - how couldn't they ! )
Eh, it's a personal thing. Men tend to come under a different sort of scrutiny than women when it comes to a "considerable" age difference, but it's never really been an issue for me. I generally go for girls around my own age, but I'm fine with a slightly more... experienced woman. Largest difference for me was probably eight years (me being 19; her being 27), but I wouldn't be adverse to going a little higher if the spark was there.
Twenty-two to fifty is pretty amusing though, OP. As is you getting on great with her daughter. >.>
That both makes sense and is kinda bad at the same time haha
I don't really agree with the wealth part. Of course that sorta thing can become an issue but it shouldn't matter in a real relationship. From personal experience the only issue with wealth in relationships I've had has been when one of us wants to go out somewhere but the other can't afford it. That and going on holidays together.
The intelligence part actually makes a bit of sense. I've seen it in a lot of couples, moreso the derpy couples :P I dated an extremely dumb guy for a year, he was dumb but cared for me a lot so I didn't care at first. But it got to me so much by the end of it I just got so frustrated at him and the stupid things he said. One of my favourite dumb things he said was that birds evolved into dinosaurs. >_>
There's a numerical algorithm for this.
Subtract seven from your age and then double it, and that's a maximum age you should date before it gets odd.
The reverse is half your age and then add seven, and can serve as a minimum.
I'm 23, which means my maximum age to date is 32 and minimum is 18.5.
Personally, any more than ~5ish years older than me, and i wouldn't feel like we could have a meaningful relationship. I'm male.
