What is the normal age for dating
Two stand out as the most common approaches in our society.
The truth is that age is not just a number, says Seth Meyers, Ph.
Instead, be realistic about what you want in someone, not what you want from their age.
Think of 10 years as a general guideline, but be open to other ages, as well—and don’t limit yourself to dating only someone older.“' Cast a wide net' is what I tell all my clients,” Sussman says.
Meyers says that people often set overly rigid limitations when it comes to age.“The unhealthy individual either has a type that is too specific and narrow (I want someone between 30 and 35 who loves the outdoors, is really close to his parents and siblings) or, conversely, too broad and vague (I just want someone nice),” Meyers says.
Both experts agree than more than 10 years’ difference in a relationship can come with foreseeable issues, but that doesn’t mean it’s a definite nonstarter.
