Mormon dating age
”Some single adults have observed that age does matter to others in the dating pool.“Unfortunately, the majority of society, at least what I know of in the LDS dating world, make (age) into a matter,” stated one female friend in my mid-singles ward.
“Most guys I've met who are within one year or more younger than me refuse to consider me as a dating option. I thought that would change as I got older and they realized it was just a number and that a few years didn't make all that much of a difference. I find the whole situation frustrating and ridiculous.”I hope that this friend’s unfortunate experiences are the exception and not the rule.
Couples should openly consider and talk about these concerns.
And you should seriously think about what you are willing to commit to on your own time. You need to make sure you have the endurance and ability to cover the miles.
Even if she were kidding, there is always at least a glint of truth in every sarcastic remark.She, in fact, asked me out first, which was a gesture I greatly appreciated and one that I later reciprocated.However, I remember that our age difference seemed to be something of a big deal to her sister.Certainly, a five-year age gap would have made a significant difference to both of us just a few years prior to that time.As we were both in our 20s, though, it didn’t matter to either of us.
