My former SO is 10 years younger. Most men that are interested in me are generally 5-10 years younger, well, those are the ones that make it clear they are interested. I do not date older than myself. I've tried and it just doesn't fit with me. Difference in attitudes/interests/views. Younger or exactly my age is a much better fit for me. I was recently contacted by a really nice guy who is currently 29 ~ he actually seems older than me in some ways...it's quite interesting. That however, borders on too young for me. It's personal preference ~ date where you are comfortable.

I haven't had any major age differences in relationships. the oldest I dated was 6 years older than I am and the youngest was 3 years younger. Now that I'm getting older, I don't think age matters as much and would be open to dating someone older/younger - just not sure how much older/younger!

He was 14 years younger than me. We dated for about a year and a half. Had loads of fun together! Went dancing, shooting pool, to the movies, dining out, to the ocean for the weekend, etc. etc. Sometimes I still miss him (it's been 4 years), but I ended it. I knew he wanted to have children of his own and that wasn't about to be with me.
I've always had a preference for younger guys. I did end up marrying someone 4 years older
and he grew old fast! I do have a date set up for next week with someone older. I'll just see how it goes. I had a 28 year old email/IM me the other day. I don't know.... 20 years difference just seems like a whole lot! I think I would never hear the end of it from my friends.

age difference..depends how old you are. I was 25 and dating a 19 yr old..so 6 yrs for me is the biggest age difference. I think up to 10 yrs would be ok. If the guy is 40, and the lady 30, its OK. But for me, I would never date a woman older or the same age as me. The only woman in my life thats older than me is my MOM, and I'll leave it at that.

Age does not matter, it's the individual that matters. I know people in their 60's that have never grown up and people in their 30's that totally have their act together. Just go for what feels good, if it makes you happy then you are doing the right thing!

I have dated one woman that was 12 years older than me in the last year and a woman that was 13 years older than me when I was 28. The youngest I've dated was 10 years my junior, 21 when I was 31.

I got along with the older women better than the younger one.

I agree with serendipityone.

She has a great outlook on this one. I am in my 40's and have dated two woman 15 yrs younger than myself. We had no problems relating to things because our interests were aligned.

I only had sex with one of the four that I dated because it turned into a long term relationship but I take exception to that other ladies viagra statement........do most men my age really have that problem?

Poor guys, no-wonder they drive Corvettes and new golf clubs !

Me?
I am just losing my hair. Hey viagra grows that too !
I am off to get some !

Hey, there was a thread about a man on Viagra. He lost his sex drive completely!

Viagra is a methamphetamine, like Crystal Meth. Has the same effects, higher libido, etc. But if you use it regularly, after about 6-8 months, it burns out your sex drive.
So, lots of sex, and then....nothing. Nada.
Eat healthy instead. Works much better.

I've not dated enough to say.
But I went out with 2 women, who were both about 2 years younger than me.

I'd consider anyone, but that's because I don't really care, as long as we can talk. It's not like I have a stream of intelligent attractive women to pick from.
It seems that shoes & football are as good as it gets.

I think I sorta saw a guy who was about 9 years older than me once. I was 21, he was 30...but he looked like he was in his early 20's. And I looked 15. haha

When you can look at somebody without seeing "that stuff" then you are really looking at them.


Absolutely agree with this statement!!

I typically date guys who are older than me. Guys my age are not mature enough for me - they still want to go clubbing, drinking, and play video games. The older guys have already done all that, and are content which themselves...

When I was 19, I was in a relationship with a 31 year old. The relationship last 2 years, and was great while it lasted. He'll always have a place in my heart.

When I was 30, I dated a 60 year old for a while...while a 30 year difference was a stretch, I had the most fun with him. We went to concerts, went sight-seeing, went out to eat, and met with friends every single night we were together...very cultural. It was great (and the sex was out of this world)!

That being said, I typically tend to stick to guys who are 10-15 years older than me...not younger than 10, not older than 15. But that's not set in stone.

If we are men we might not even know . Many ladies lie about their age . The good news is thats easy to decipher in white page searches . So the gig is up ladies lmao. I have dated women couple decades or so older than me , not a big deal . At least not to me .

On the "him older" side, 14 years. On the "me older" side, 15 years older.

I have dated women as much as 21 years younger than I am, and as much as 10 years older.........

As we age, I think the boundaries that were set as black and white, become much more gray and blurred. I have known women much older that looked and acted more in tune with my desires and wants, and many younger women that are way to old for me with their attitudes and looks.

Dating is about the experience, not the birth certificate, and if you match well, enjoy each other and leave better than when you started.......what is the harm????

My one "big" qualifier will be if they want children or not. I had mine, and have no desire to father any more, so if they are young enough and want to give birth, then that is a deal breaker. I do not mind dating someone that has children already, as I do as well, but I have no desire to do that from the start all over again.

Just my opinion........

Serious relationship 4 years. I was 24 and she was 28.
Casual relationship 18 years. I was 29 and she was 47.

In a casual relationship, age doesn't matter to me. I wouldn't care if she was 21, 30, 40, or 50. In a serious relationship, I doubt I would date a woman that is more than 10 yrs older / younger than me. An much older woman ( more than 10 yrs older than me ) would probably have different long term and future goals than me. A much younger woman ( more than 10 years younger than me ) would probably be too immature and naive about many things. She wouldn't even be old enough to legally drink in the United States.

I had the BEST summer fling a couple of years ago with a guy that was 18 years younger than me!!

I've been in a relationship for 4 year with a guy that was 5 years younger than me.

But, I've never dated or been with anyone significantly older than myself.

Oh, and for years now I've been carrying somewhat of a torch for a guy who's 12 years my junior!

Guess you can say, I've got a thing for younger guys! LOL

Depending on ones age the gap can be greater. A 10 year difference is more then acceptable and works very well. I personally have experianced a 14 year gap a few years ago with an 18 yr old girl, needless to say it didn't last.

The biggest age difference is also my longest lasting.. and its odd. Hes 17 yrs my senior, but we met VIA work, and knew each other a year before I pursued him.. he was leary at first, but man, to this day we get along famously...

It was a funny story really, i figured he was 31-32 he figured i was 24-25 so in our minds things were god. i thought we had discussed it, and aftera year and his boss trying toset us up, I never asked. One day we were out and I got ID and he grabbed my id, and i asked for his, and it was a quiet dinner to say the least.

We are still awesome friends, and to this day have never even had a fight, but neded things romantically, due to moving pretty far away for awhile etc... but now.. we are 10 blocks from each other..a nd hanging out alot.. so who knows :)
