To a point, yes. But being a biology student has taught me that people are kinda like trees. They can be really happy and healthy in old age but not so if they don't take care of themselves (or aren't taken care of)
some people think age is just a number what do you think
I could say yes, but I don't think I believe that. I mean, I've never been attracted to a male younger than me -- not even one the same age as me. Not intentionally. I didn't make it a rule, it's just how it happened. I just haven't ever found them attractive ever. So age did matter there.
Also, I'd be lying if I said I felt okay with a 25 year old dating a 13 year old girl. That is one case where in my opinion, age matters. So I guess you could say it doesn't when people reach a certain age, but there are cases where age can matter enough to get your ass sent to jail, so I just can't ignore the feeling I have that it matters to me.
A 10 + year difference between two adults does not matter in my opinion. It's like once you reach a certain age, there's not such a big gap there maturity-wise and all. Those are just my feelings. Hell, even I don't understand them! Lol
