With all the online dating sites, finding people with similar interests seems to have become easier. Granted, how many of us actually fill out all the boxes in the questionnaires?! But I’ve noticed with the increase in meeting through a dating site, age doesn’t seem to matter… until you actually have to spend time face to face with someone.
Recently, a friend started corresponding with someone online. He hesitated because there was a 20 year age difference. But apparently, the potential date was persistent and my friend agreed to meet in person. First date was good with great conversation and a hint of physical chemistry. Over the next week, there were a few jabs at grandpa jokes that my friend took in stride, but he did stop to think about the age difference. Thought about what it would mean since they were both at different stages in life in regards to education, career, family and future plans.
