Usually my age +2/3 years or younger by 10 max. It seems to be an activity level thing for me. Also many men older than me are already retired and I'm just not ready for that yet.

I believe this has been asked before but I prefer older men. They know what they want in life.

I read some of the replies but no one really mentioned what their age was. I am an older woman and am attracted to men my age but the younger guys are more up for fun and aren't looking (mostly) for long term relationships. And let's face it ladies, how many of the younger guys have to use Viagra? I know I'll get a lot of boos for that remark but it's an honest answer. But really age IS just a number and it's how someone makes you feel that is more attractive than anything. So guys here's a free piece of advice....make her feel attractive or sexy or whatever you want to call it and you'll be in there.

I've been finding more and more that many women my age (41) have more issues than I'm willing to deal with. The kids and I have a life without drama and would like to keep it that way. I also want more kids and most my age have no interest in starting over again with that. At first I had a big problem with dating people so much younger than I just because of the fact my kids are 16 and 18 and dating someone in their 20's seemed a bit odd. My kids were a big help in helping me realize how silly it was to feel that way about something that in the end is just a number. As far as the Viagra comment, I know more people in their twenties that use that crap than I do people my age by far. I figure if I need a pill, either I'm not attracted to you, or it's time to hang up my spurs.

Younger women all the way! I'm 40 but find myself attraced to women generally from 28ish to 36ish but will date up to my age if she's full of life & not all about the whole values this & settle down that-- blah blah blah = "boring"! Don't get me wrong though-- I'm not against settling down with the rgt person, and I like "exclusive" relationships totally (have had a 10 yr and a 4.5 yr longest terms) but--

I find most younger women (under 40) still to like to get out & DO things on a constant & explore/experience life to it's fullest! A lot of older women seem to be too stuffy, laid back, routine, too serious about everything in life, and many bitter because of emotional baggage (plus) younger women (20s/30s) are generally more physically attractive & active (which DOES count!) because and I'm NOT sorry for this-- I like a woman that appeals to me in "all" senses who likes to be on the go doing whatever as it comes,

I still like to do all kinds of things in life like I did in my 20s because I refuse to be stuck in a routine growing old & be like my parents doing nothing except sitting in a house day after day watching each other grow old or doing BORING crap like people in their 70s should/would be doing!!

PLUS and here's a biggie!! when it comes time for "play time in the bedroom!" I want to be turned on by what I SEE! Men are extremely "visual" and it's "genetics" that make us that way. No, it's not because we are shallow (at least not all of us!) - I am a deep thinking & feeling individual (have an IQ of 133 - near genius which only 2% of all people on earth have in my range) so I understand how one can be attracted to another by "intellect" more than anything & that what really matters is what's in ones heart (yet) intellect is only "1" aspect, and not nearly enough solely by itself to attract me to the point of romantic interest (but it is a high priority attribute) & needed for me to continue with you-- as I DO need mental stimuli most can't comprehend

i prefer older men.. intellegence does it 4 me.. as well as a nice smile & ummm a cute a$$.. .. i`ve dated youngers guys.. but never felt an attraction 2 them.. older men know how 2 treat a lady like a lady (or at least they should at this point in their life).. and there`s no pressure placed by them 2 do anything ur not comfortable with.. and in my opinion, their quite secure w/themselves.. eg: knowing what they want outta life, & where their heading 2..

It doesn't matter. If a woman is vibrant, exciting, and intellectually stimulating, her age won't matter.

Hmm, I always feel like I owe somebody a dollar when I get surprised on these forums. These are not the responses I expected to hear on the subject at all! Well except the remarks on younger women/men. Ofcourse everyone is attracted to youth, biologically it represents better health, which means good for breeding. That's how animals think right? Are you an animal?
Quick rant: Why does everyone say they don't know why they feel a certain way about age, or anything really? Don't you think you better find out?

Anyway, I'll be 26 in a couple of weeks. I have zero interest in men younger than 30. Barely a blip for men 30 to 35, and then my passion sparks into flames for men 35 and up.
I know exactly why, and it has everything to do with age. It is more than just a number! Older men have it figured out,
no confusions,
no drastic mood swings,
no more weekly personality crisis
settled,
established,
comfortable in their own skin,
have cut down their gaggles of stupid drinking buddies in their youth to respectable, interesting close friends
are appreciative and romantic
are FABULOUS in bed, because they know how to touch a woman, and how to take their time, have figured out that it's about quality, not quantity

I have dated younger than 30 men. I've even dated men a couple years younger than me, because I believe if you feel a spark you look into it, because as we all know, you can't lump all men into categories, you could be surprised! Usually I've found though, that if your lucky enough to meet a young guy who's honest enough to be upfront, he'll tell you the day you meet him that he "doesn't know what he wants" as opposed to dropping that lovely bombshell a month in, or 6 months in when you've gone and let yourself get just invested enough to get burned.

If you're so young in the mind that you don't know who you are or what you want, what makes you think you should inflict yourself on me and my life? I find unfortunately there's rarely a case where a mixed up 20 something year old male or female, has enough sense to not throw a monkey wrench into the unsuspecting single public. Now I'm not saying men or women of any age and any personal development level, can't be good friends, great to casually date, or even good in bed, they certainly can be!

I think what a poster on about page 2 or 3 really summed it up quite well. Just because something is nice to look at doesn't mean it's what's good for us. Pretty things are simply pretty things. I crave a fine looking 22 year old like I do a piece of cheesecake, or a new painting. It's great to "consume" but what's really in it for you? What does it give you besides visual stimulation?
Not to mention, I think an older man, who's masculine ,confident and full of character the sexiest thing on the planet, visually!

Give me a man in his late 30's, experienced, well educated, read and traveled, in a back booth of a pub charming me with genuine nature, his quiet confidence, his sense of self, and the brains to know what a good woman really is, any day.

^^^I am speechless, a woman like this actually exists? I am shocked big time. And here I thought the great women have all gone into hibernation...this is a good sign. I see the light now.

It depends on how they look, an older that looks younger i will go for that. But the younger one who looks older its ok too. It really where the attraction is. I am old and i tends to communicate to men who are younger.

Flavia/Trishnaa - we need more women like you in the world. And then again, people should not be judged based on looks alone. I can understand age being a criterion for some people, but I hate when they use it as an excuse for race or some other reason.

i'm 37 and i prefer the younger guys. i agree with a few of the ladies on here, some guys our age just want to sit on their butts and do squat, if u read my profile theres a pretty good description to that particular older male syndrome i may get a few boos from it but oh well lol. the youngest guy i dated, which was a cpl yrs ago was 24(i was 34 at the time) so seems i go on a 10 yr age range lol i don't go LOOKING for younger guys, just seems to happen that way....who knows but i'm not gonna complain

^^Good stuff, glad to know that me being 37 dating is finished...man I gotta become like men my age because all you women my age seem to assume I am no different. And believe it or not alot of men our age are not boring BUT will give up hope trying to prove that we are not and say fine if you can't beat them, may as well join them. Time for me to gain about 80 pounds over the summer and look like a slob and be boring...sound like an attractive thing to do? Thought not...hey younger studs, take all these women who assume things and rock their worlds. We don't need em and they don't want us.

LOL

Younger, every time.

Like one fella said, younger gals are more spontaneous, full of life, and I have generally found them a whole lot less judgemental.

Many of the younger ones I have spent time with complain younger guys are less willing to experiment, sexually. These young fools don't know what they're missing. Being teacher and mentor to a young woman who wants to seriously explore her own sexuality is a real privelege.

It would be an interesting exercise if all the people who said "older" or "younger" also posted the AGE RANGE they tend to prefer. I have a sneaking suspicion that the women who say older and the ones who say younger are mostly all talking about men in their 30s.....
