Mind the gap: The perfect relationship age differencePosted on: March 12, 2013 14:43:14
For female UK singles attracted to a more mature gentleman, the perfect age difference is four years and four months, one survey has claimed.
Confused.com questioned over 2,000 adults and found that respondents put the ideal age gap at 52 months.
However, the findings suggested that the rule only applies if the guy is older than the girl.
Dating an older person was found to have a number of benefits, according to the website's findings, including being able to learn from your partner's different perspective and the ability to rub off your youth onto a more mature date.
As many as 30 per cent of women in the survey were happy for their other half to be as much as seven years older.
TV relationships expert Julia Cole said dating someone older is becoming increasingly common, as there is a greater acceptance for diversity among couples, but suggested it could create some issues that need to be considered.
"If the age gap is fairly wide - more than ten years - and the relationship grows into a commitment, it is important to talk about attitudes to money, expectations of family life and what parents, siblings and friends will think about an older partner in their life as well as yours," she said.
Couples in the limelight including Coldplay frontman Chris Martin (36) and actress Gwyneth Paltrow (40) proves that although the four-year rule in the study might be one worth considering, it doesn't necessarily have to be the bloke that is older
Other famous partnerships who have a similar 'perfect' gap includes Kate Moss and her partner, and none other than the Queen and Prince Philip, who have a five-year age difference.
However, it's important to remember that age is still just a number and only one factor when it comes to compatibility between couples.
After all, the likes of Beyonce, who is 31 and Jay Z, 43, as well as Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas - who have an age difference of 25 years - have proved that there is always an exception to the rule.
