Each and every one of those relationships began somehow, and chances are one or both partners wondered if the age gap was too much to bridge.A 20-year-old worrying about his ramen consumption probably won’t relate to half of that battle, and a thirtysomething may be too far past it to appreciate this phase. I don’t possess a checklist, but I do hope that I possess the awareness to recognize the people that speak my language and understand my station in life, whether they fit my “brackets” or not.I’m not looking for a life partner, and I’m not looking for a one-night-stand.
This has the advantage of allowing for a larger age gap the older the partners get; the four-year age gap between a 22-year-old and an 18-year-old is significant (and just barely allowed by this rule), but the same age gap between an 86-year-old and a 90-year-old isn't worth comment.I will rave about my newly discovered professionalism, and you will laugh at how clearly my stories scream, “I am a new adult!” At 32, chances are you’re looking to settle down.If you’re anything remotely like a typical college student, you sleep until noon, study until 2am, eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch at least once a day, and spend your weekends drunk, furiously writing a paper about Kant, or both.I’m not sure we’re on the same wavelength just yet.
