There is a difference between "love" and "in love". I can say I love my mom, my dogs, my brother, my friends but that does not mean I am in love with them. So I was thinking how can we really define being "in love" with somebody?
Affection is the path or reality of caring and niceness but lack of sexual interest.
Attraction (Infatuation) is the path that leads to sex.
When a woman feels affection for you, youre probably too much of a nice guy. She may think of you as just a friend or maybe even a potential husband who has provider stamped all over his forehead. Maybe youd be someone she can end up bossing around if you remain complacent. Affection is something you feel for a puppy dog.

There is a famous saying that Love is blind. Hence true love will transcand all age barriers. But at the end of the day, when one sees the reality, in light of the society, he/she will find that age matters....

Yes age difference does influence a relationship. But when I say influence i am not just saying negetive. Sometimes due to age diff. the couple can have two different point of views which is quite helpful coz u cab get different perspectives on life!
My husband is some 10yrs elder to me.. We had a love marriage, and a successful relationshp...share a wonderful understaning...I get his expert and matured advises all the time..and with us together our love is warm, young and ever green........I also make him do things he might have done 10yrs back..and he enjoys it!!!! Infact he is very dependable and stable opposed to my frivolity and we gel vry nicely!

I have learnt from life that there should be at least 3 to 4 years difference in the ages of husband and wife and that the husband should be the older one. A lesser difference more often than not creates a lot of problems as husbands want to be treated as the head many a times, not as equals.
