Age Is Just A Number: Does It Really Matter If There’s An Age Gap Between Partners?

When it comes to relationships, there are so many factors to figure out. These things are complicated! One of the biggest dating topics that almost always leads to a heated debate is the idea of age gaps. (When we say “age gap,” we mean an age difference of at least five years.) Many people say that “age is just a number,” and therefore it has no relevance in a relationship. Others feel that large age gaps can seriously impact a relationship and that in some cases, they're even inappropriate (as in one of the partners is underage!) To add to the debate, we're going to break down the good and the bad of age gaps in relationships right here. Take a look:

The Good

Those in favor of age gaps in relationships may be on to something. Barring any relationships that involve underage individuals (if you're in one of these, consider yourself disgusting…and a criminal), relationships with age gaps can actually be great things. If you're involved with someone significantly older, they are more likely to be more experienced, cultured and wiser. This can help you to grow as a person and improve upon yourself in a way that being with someone your own age cannot. On the flipside, if you're the one that is older, you get the great privilege of helping someone else to grow.

The Bad

While there are good aspects to age gaps in relationships, we have to admit that there are more bad aspects. The most obvious bad aspect is the stigma. There is a major stigma surrounding large age gaps in relationships. For instance, younger women who are with much older men are often viewed as “gold diggers” who are only after the man's money. Many people doubt the legitimacy of these relationships due to the social stigma. Another negative aspect is that the two partners are at very different points in their life, and therefore they often want entirely different things. The younger partner may want to have kids one day, while the older partner does not want kids because they already have them and are past that point in their life. Being at different places in life also makes it hard for the two partners to understand one another. Issues that are important to the older partner may have no relevance to the younger partner, mainly because they have not reached a certain point in their life.

The Conclusion

All in all, when it comes to age gaps in relationships, it really depends on the people involved. For some couples, age gaps totally work. For others, the relationships ultimately reach their end. What matters most is that everyone involved is of legal age, is comfortable, happy, and in love with their partner. If all those requirements are met, then maybe age really is just a number.

Head-Over-Heels: 4 Signs A Man Is In Love

Men can be crazy hard to read. From the time they're born, men are taught to bottle up their feelings and emotions, making it nearly impossible to tell how they feel about anything. This makes it particularly hard to know how your boyfriend feels about your relationship. You may feel that you love him, but how do you know if he loves you? Even if he verbally says that he loves you, is there any way you can really be sure? Check out these four signs that a man is in love with you:

1. He's Includes You In Family Activities

Most men don't just introduce any partner to their family. If he's introduced you to his family and is including you in family occasions, it's because he has serious feelings about your relationship. If he thought the relationship was going to end anytime soon, he wouldn't want you to be involved with his family at all.

2. He's Not Talking To Other Women

Now, we don't mean that he can't talk to longterm friends or co-workers. We mean that if he's not flirting with other women, it's because he has strong feelings for you and wants to make sure your relationship works. It also means that he really respects you and doesn't want to do anything that would upset you or make you look foolish.

3. He Is Protective Of You

When a man texts or calls to make sure you get home alright, consider him in love. If he actually worries about you when you're away and wants to make sure that you're safe, it's because he really cares about you. If he wasn't in love with you, he wouldn't care whether you were okay or not.

4. He Lets You Get Your Way…A Lot

If a man is constantly letting you get your way, it's probably because he loves you. When a man is in love, he'll do just about anything to make sure you're happy. This means spoiling you and letting you get your way, even when it's not what he wants. Now, it's up to you to not take advantage of this perk! He may really love you and want to make you happy, but that doesn't mean you can walk all over him!

Taking the Plunge: 3 Important Questions To Ask Before Getting Engaged

So you're thinking of proposing to your partner – or you have an idea that your partner may propose to you. Either way, getting engaged is a huge step to take in a relationship. It means that “holy matrimony” is on the horizon! While you obviously love your partner, and you probably think you know everything there is to know about them, there are some important questions to ask before getting engaged. There are certain, well, deal breakers you should know about before you exchanged those everlasting vows. You don't want to wait until after you're married to find out that you and your partner are on very different pages about some very important things. Before you decide to get married, check out these three important questions to ask before getting engaged:

1. Do You Want Kids?

This is undoubtedly the most important thing you need to know before marrying your partner. Many marriages have ended because one partner wanted kids and the other did not. There's absolutely nothing wrong with not wanting kids (those pesky little devils can be so annoying, right?) There's also nothing wrong with definitely wanting kids (they enrich our lives in a way we could never imagine, right?) Before taking the next step, you need to know if you and your partner are in agreeance about having children. If not, it could mean the end of your marriage.

2. Where Do You Want To Live?

Where you're going to live is a huge decision you'll have to make once you get married. Do you want to continue living wherever you already are? Do you want to move somewhere new and start with a clean slate? Do you want to live in an apartment or a big house? Do you want to make sure that you live far, far away from your in-laws? These questions surrounding living quarters are very important and can make or break a marriage.

3. What Do You See For Your Career?

It's important to know what your partner has in mind for their career, if anything. Maybe they want to be a stay-at-home parent. Maybe they have huge ambitions and want to start their own business. It's also important to know what you want to do with your career. If your partner wants to be a stay-at-home parent, you'll have to be prepared to carry the financial stability in your household. This is something you need to know and agree to in advance, otherwise your marriage is headed for splitsville!

Major Missteps: 4 Things You Should Never Do On A First Date

First dates are a serious hit or miss situation. If you make a mistake, you've most likely ruined the chances for another date, let alone a relationship with this person. If you want to make a great impression on a first date, there are some things you definitely should avoid doing. Check out four things you should never do on a first date:

1. Have Sex

There's some debate surrounding this, but for the most part, having sex on the first date does not make a good impression. It sends the signal that you're easy and it may even make your date think that you sleep with anyone and everyone you go out with. Keep your pants on and make your date really work to earn intimacy.

2. Wear Revealing Clothes

This one is very intricately related to the prior tip. Dressing provocatively or wearing revealing clothes sends the message that you are easy. Most people like a partner who dresses modestly and doesn't show off their body…at least not on the first date.

3. Talk About Your Ex

A surefire way to ruin a first date is to talk about your ex. You need to avoid talking about exes at all costs. Even if your date asks about your previous relationships, keep it brief. Talking too much about an ex sends the message that you aren't over that ex, and it will send your date running.

4. Pretend To Be Someone You're Not

The worst thing you can do on a first date – or any date, really – is pretend to be someone you are not. Don't lie about your job, your family or your friends. Don't lie about your hobbies or what you enjoy doing. Be honest and be yourself. Being true to who you are will make the best impression you can make on a first date.
