You have to at least be on the same intellectual level if you want the friendship to work

I don't think so-many that I love are much smarter than I am-

And there are some that are amazing in so many ways that intellect is not even thought about-

Like my friend that is a concert pianist and can't balance a checkbook nor did she gradutae from High school-and my life would be the poorer without her-

You may need to rethink that Blue_yellow!

NO!!!! it's sad that most people can't see this. it isn't important at all...

Friendship? No, of course not!

Perhaps i should rephrase to maturity level?

NOW you are talking-I have known some 15 year olds that had more insight and maturity than a 30 year old-

I don't think age matters in friendship.
I find some adults at least twice my age a lot of fun to be around

No, you can be friends with anyone you want to no matter how old / young they are.

There we go.

I'm starting to really dislike some of my friends because they are slow at maturing.

Really slow.

yes. I've never had a successful friendship(or wanted to have one) with anyone significantly older or younger than me. If they're too old, I feel like a kid around them and if they're too young, I feel like a mom. I don't have a hard and fast age limit, but a rough estimate of good friend age for me right now is 25-40. All of my friends fit in that range.

Not at all, when I worked at a retirement home, many of the people there were elderly and I certainly considered them to be my friends. I think maturity level and the ability to connect on an emotional/intellectual level is much more important.

I agree, as long as you're at the same mental level, you should be fine. Hell, you don't even have to be at the mental level sometimes. I think far too many people equate friendships to relationships, which is why so many people over the age of eighteen get wary when they talk to minors and vice-verse. Seriously, it's not illegal to be super old and be friends with a young person.

No. I have friends who are older than me. I meet them where I work.

No, I don't think it does at all.
