If there is one thing that divides opinion when it comes to looking for a potential partner its age. For some, it is an afterthought while for others it is a central part of their search for a perfect partner. “The heart wants what the heart wants” is a cliché that couldn’t be more accurate. We truly can’t help with whom we fall in love. Love doesn’t care if someone is older or younger, but society does.
Society holds a negative stigma regarding age differences, which causes people to obsess over it. And, that is why when we start developing feelings for people outside of our age brackets, we think our feelings are wrong.
We often put up walls and flee for the mountains, but before shutting the door on the chance at love, think about your potential lover’s maturity level. If you both are on the same level of maturity, I don’t see why you should let age cloud your decision.
