When I was in my 20's the meer thought of dating a man in their 40's was disgusting to me. 40 yo's were old men in my mind. Of course now I am in my 40's and I realize that I am far from being an old lady lol. However, the idea of dating a 65 yo man to my 45 years, is not appealing at all to me. It's all about perspective.

I can see how just the age difference alone can give someone the heebie jeebies. And if that's their reason for not liking Chan, then so be it. It's a natural response to something that isn't all that natural. I can't stand Chan either. Part of it is the age difference. Sorry, but there just isn't going to be that much in common between a 20 yo girl and a 40 yo man. Of course there will be exceptions, but I think finding a couple with a 20 year age difference, especially one with someone that is just hitting her 20's, that can stand the test of time is going to be very few and far between.

Most 20 yo's don't have a real idea of who they are yet, not as adults. Take the 20 year age difference and apply it later in life... say 40/60, or even 30/50 and it gets a little bit better, because as you get older the commonalities between the folks 20 years your senior start to align more.

Add on top to the age difference, the fact that Chelsea is clearly not a match to Dan in maturity level, and you have a couple that just doesn't work. For me Chan doesn't work due to both things... the age difference grosses me out, and the maturity level issues just seal in their doomed fate.
