You should have tied it to the Mets. Make a new thread proposing that the Mets trade for Cutter Dykstra and then mention that he's also engaged to Meadow Soprano!

8 years apart isn't that weird IMO. I mean, obviously 23 and 15 isn't cool, 23 and 31 isn't that weird.

My rule of thumb is generally 5 years apart behaviorally, plus/minus adjustments for how old an individually can appropriately "behave". For instances, a 23 year old could easily be as mature as most 25 or 26 year olds. A 31 year old could easily pass for 28. If that's how it breaks down, who cares? Of course that 23 year old could act like an immature 19 year old, and the 31 year old could be wiser than her years and act 35, at which point it would get weird. I just don't think you could ever break down an 8 year difference and think you know definitively that something is weird. You'd have to actually know the people. Personally (I'm 29), I think I'd feel comfortable with someone in their high 30s, but right around 25 is where they start to lose my interest. I've just always identified with an older group. 

There is a gap when I think you can make broader generalizations, it just isn't 8.

I have a 27 year old friend like that.  He can't date a woman unless shes 33 and up.

As he gets older, he will abandon that rule... trust me on that.

No he won't. He'll get older and the rule will stay the same. 30 years old? 33 and up. 33 years old? 33 and up. 45 years old? 33 and up.

Got it... I was looking at it from the perspective of the woman always had to be 5-6 yrs older then him.

Haha. I'm sure everyone's preferences and compatibilities change as they get older. Right now I think I'm ok with 25-38 or so (right before they realize that they're almost 40). For all I know, that will be the same range I'm comfortable with in 5 years.

In my experience, women have the best combination of looks and confidence with themselves at about 32-35.  Unfortunately, that's also when the whole baby making issue typically comes up, if it hasn't already. 

And once the babies come, nothing is the same.  Physically, or more importantly mentally.

I'm 27 and I don't think I can date a women younger than 23.  Problem is that single women 27/28+ wanna know where their ring is and when you're getting them preggers. 

I had a coach who would always say, "Guys, hookers are the cheapest way to go."

I think you put the "more importantly" in the wrong spot.

The worst thing is women have no concept of long term investments. They can't see past what they're doing that night. I get into convos with girls and I'm like yeah I basically have no social life until 30, but I'll have well into 6 figures saved. And they can't fathom how a human can have that sort of plan. And when I'm 30, its gonna be super young still. Its a good plan imo. Wtf am I gonna spend money on now?

I have no idea why, but girls just don't plan ahead too much. Annoying.

And by social life I mean bar scene, Young Libertines club that meets biweekly every Saturday nite on commonwealth Ave doesn't count as far as the women folk are concerned.

Tho I'm a sucker for taking a girl to a baseball game.

20-22 imo. Hot as hell and insecure. "did he just glance at my ugly friend for 2 nanoseconds? I better S his C and let that girl know who's the real prize here".
