"Age doesn't matter" is an argument most often made by those which are held back for one reason or another by their age. However age does matter. It doesn't amount to a world of difference, but it does matter. If you don't believe me try dating someone well out of your age range. You'll find that not only are there differences in experience levels, knowledge, and wisdom but the biggest of differences lies in lifes priorities, where one is on their life journey, as well as different customs and ideals that the individual was raised with at the time of their childhood. Age does matter, quite a deal. Between a 16 and 20 year old? Most likely not, the biggest issue you'll run into there would be a maturity issue but for the MOST part if you're on this forum as a regular you SHOULD be relatively mature as you're showing you care for something deeper than the average adolescent. But I digress, just proving a point that "age doesn't matter" is a falsity that shouldn't be tossed around.
