    Did you ignore the part about the mounting empirical evidence against the usefulness of antidepressants or what?

    Yeah, they're over prescribed to shit here and I can only imagine it's even worse in the US. Myself and several others I know that have suffered from long term (i.e. 10+ years kinda thing) depression and tried a variety of antidepressants have found them, at best, to be a very minor aid. For myself they've done absolutely nothing.

    The people I know that have taken them and claimed that they're helping always seem to be (this sounds really condescending and pretentious but whatever) a) less intelligent, b) only experiencing short term 'depression' and c) not really experiencing what I'd call depression so much as angsty 'no one loves me!11' attention whoring bullshit.

    So basically for them it seems to be either a complete placebo (which is cool, if it's helping) or some means of appearing all individual and cool, and I guess in cases a combination of the two.

    Exercise, good diet, not locking yourself away and forcing yourself to spend time with people or doing things are all (again, my experience, but others I know agree) far, far superior means of dealing with depression than drugs.




    I do however know lots of people that benefit from medication aimed at combating anxiety. I can imagine lots of that being ye olde placebo effect too but yeah. I've never really experienced anxiety or been medicated specifically for it.

    I want to second the exercise recommendation, because it really does work wonders on one's mood. I have much less stress and emotional turmoil in my life since I started going to the gym 3-4 times a week with a coworker.

    I was an antidepressant user for 2 years and from my experience it has actually helped a lot. You should know that there are many types of antidepressants. You just have to talk with your doctor so that he changes the dose or prescribe you another drug or combination of drugs. You can't just stop taking it if it's not helping you. You have to wait at least a month for the drug to start doing its job.

    I am on antidepressants. They suck. Don't do it.

    Guys, guys, guys. Back to the topic at hand.

    What's your personal age-cut off when seeing someone? I met this girl on a night out - friend of a friend - and she's about 8 years younger than I am. She is twenty-one and I just turned twenty-nine. We hit it off and have been going out on some dates and just hanging out at my place. I was telling my friend about it and he was giving me some stick over her being so much younger than me. I hadn't given it much thought, to be perfectly frank.

    If she were any younger it might be a little weird, but at 21 a person should be old enough to make just about any decision (though it depends on their individual maturity level too of course).

    At 21 it should be fine. Personally, being 21 myself, my cut-off would be maybe... 17? I dunno. I'd date a 17 year old.

    I'm 20 and I wont hit anything below 17 really. The legal age here is 16 though.

    I'm pretty sure 16 is the legal age here also. Ask me when I'm drunk, I may be a bit more receptive to the idea. :V

    I think it's important to look at lifestyles when considering age. Students can see students. Working people can see working people. I'm 25 and my girlfriend is 22, but she finished college early and is already making more than I am, so we're not too far from the same place in life.

    As someone who likes to drink a lot, I can't imagine being 21+ and seriously dating much younger. Inability to go to bars would bother me too much.

    I would fuck a 15 year old, but I wouldn't date one, because they are stupid.

    I have only ever 'dated' women older than me.

    I've only ever been with one younger than myself, and that was by a matter of days.
