Is Age Really Important In A Relationship?

Why do Nigerian ladies lay much emphasis on age when it comes to relationship? I'm in love with a lady,but she said we can't go out because she is older than me.so i want to know if age is really important in a relationship.

That answer is simple. . . . .

He lied because he wanted u so much and he knew his age disqualifies him in the first place.

Naturally, he had to lie just like guys lie over material stuffs and girls like over the number of their exes/virginity.

What will a woman do after sleeping with a guy younger than u for 3 years? U quit and stop loving him cos he is younger?

Blimey. . . . .Nairaland is a land of Philistines.

ibk has a valid point, if he could keep such a fundamental lie for so long only God knows what else he has up his sleeves that he's not come clean on.

These women don't even apply real life scenarios to simple topics like this.

Still, a guy is asking u out and he lied about his age in the beginning. . . .

U began dating him and after few years, he fesses up that he is actually 3 years younger than you.

What will u do? Throw him out of the house?

Yes it is important to me. . .chemistry buries itself as soon as I know you're younger than I am.

Age is not important. It depends on the individual

Blimey. . . . .there are 22 year-olds that are smarter and more matured than 38 year-olds. . . . .

The single most important factor is the chemistry. . . .Age is not important at all. . . It's just a number.

According to chrisd, an emotionally mature woman is one who takes a lot of rubbish from her boyfriend without complaining. It is better for a woman to be single forever than to be with a man who expects her not to complain when he goes about kissing and sleeping with other girls, ignoring her feelings, putting his friends ahead of her, et cetera.

Or perhaps too much emotional maturity makes her cry all the time. Never understood what it means to be emotionally matured.

Steps to Emotional Maturity

1. Eliminate Magical Thinking (Impossible if she is pentecostal/charismatic)

2. Learn to Tolerate Your Anxiety (Women are always anxious about everything)

3. Learn to Recognize and Appropriately Express Your Anger (Especially if you see him kiss another girl)

4. Learn to Cope With Pain and Hurt (He going out with his friends only and does not invite you)

5. Facing Your Guilty Feelings (Having that chocolate or icecream which you know you should not have ate)

6. Learn to Live With Your Failures (Not ever getting that sexy boy)

7. Put Your Feelings in Perspective (Cannot happen since women usually cry a lot)

So you see, women can never be Emotional Mature.
