Even at 26, it was pretty easy to weed out the guys who were the type to value a woman only for things like "youth" and "hotness," and at 32, if there's less opportunity, there's also less need to weed out.I'm OK with that, because I also have less energy now.
Johanna said she found it a bit awkward to connect with her boyfriend, Paul’s, friends, even though he was only three years younger. I felt removed from their age and current life stage," she says. A friend once told me that the acceptable age difference was half the older person's age plus seven.
If he had still been a "college kid," I might have had a hard time feeling like we were equals.
And while the same life stage can seem to erase an age difference, Willy Wooten, a licensed marriage and family therapist, who has been counseling for over 30 years, encourages couples to think ahead.
(Send cards and wrinkle cream, please.) I noticed a marked difference in the amount of attention I got the second time around, but when I insisted it was because I was over 30, people told me I was imagining it. According to a new study of more than 81,000 single people between the ages of 25 and 35, there are women who receive significantly more attention online.

Round two came when I was 30, and it's still going strong as my 32nd birthday creeps up on me later this month.At one point, he even confided that it had been his dream to have a wife and family since he was a young teen.I realized that Kevin was an "old soul," and we were ready for the same things.But the number of thoughtful, charming messages I get, while never as high, is still holding steady.I don't go on a million dates and I haven't met the perfect guy for me yet, but at age 26 and at age almost-32, I've gone on plenty of dates with plenty of nice, smart guys. After spending a few days trying to adjust to the fact that the handsome co-leader of my small group was seven years my junior, I had just realized that he was actually eight years younger!
