To me, the red flag would be when someone feels it's totally realistic to imagine someone who's 10-15-20 years younger then them finding them attractive and wanting to date them and it's going to work out great...but don't want to even consider dating someone who's even just a few years older than themselves. It's like they don't want to be judged themselves based on their numerical age...but they want to judge other people on their numerical age.


Totally agree!

But come-on folks, don't we beat this subject to death about every other week, month, year...?

Everyone wants to be younger in their profile. People lie everyday about their age. And I catch them everyday when they lie. For me, I am proud of my age. I am 50. This just means I've taken care of myself, and look good for my age. I am also more experienced in life, and have more wisdom. This means I have seen all the tricks in the book, and out of it.

Thing is, I could care less if someone choses to date down 10-15-20 years...it really means nothing to me...I just think next...

I'm more offended by the person who obviously is lying on her profile and is 10 years older than the profile age...and when she writes "I'm really X+, but POF won't let me change my age"...well, geeze...you shoulda waited till the meet n greet to tell me you're a liar.

I see you now. Both our birthday's are on the 4th of July. Now that is amazing. I'm hitting the old 51 this year. Ouch. But I'm loving every minute of it!

I'll be 87!

I don't want to date men my age or older
At night, they have to put their ears in a case, their eyes on the night stand, and their teeth in a cup. Not for me! Give me a sexy "younger man" any time. It ain't over, til it's over!
