Dear 100 Hour Board,
According to Mormon standards, would it be ok to date a 20 year-old if you're 27 ?? (Either the male or female being the older). And yes, I'm a faithful LDS.

A: Dear Just me,
According to the For The Strength Of Youth pamphlet (and even if you're 27 this applies to you too), there is no guideline at to how old is too old. Date only those who have high standards and in whose company you can maintain your standards. A young man and a young woman on a date are responsible to help each other maintain their standards and to protect each other's honor and virtue. You must honor the sanctity of the priesthood and of womanhood.
As long as you're doing that, man, you can date whomever you want to, if either party doesn't think it too odd. But my cousin was 26 when he married a 19 year old; they got married because they knew it was right. It's personal preference, I guess.
