I actually prefer men around my age and younger men up to a point. However I probably wouldn't date any man that is more than 15 yrs younger than me.

The youngest I can accept to date is 25. As long as he projects himself as mature and responsible and respectful with a stable job.

For me, it's just about the realities of how different the stages of our lives are.

Most younger men I meet do not have children or only have 1 and want more. I have beautiful daughters and cannot have more.

They are looking to settle down and get married soon. I have been married. 10 years. It's not something I plan on or actively seek at this moment.

I just feel that dating someone younger can be fun, but if those two issues are in the way, it would prevent us from moving forward into a serious relationship.

The last man I dated was 26. I had just turned 35. The children issue wasn't a problem because he has an illness that is genetic, so he's decided to not have children. But in the end, it couldn't work because he was more looking for someone to replace his mom. That's just not my cup of tea.

I dated a few guys who were about 10 years younger than me. Things didn't end well - they were a bit immature when it came to relationships and especially communication and honesty.

I'd rather stick to someone +/- 6 years of my age...

Being approached by men in their 20s is flattering, but I'm not interested. I have even been hit on by my stepson's roommates. My reason is some of them are younger than my children (stepsons that I raised). I do like younger men, but 20 is too young for me. I created a cut off age of 5 years older than my oldest. I'm still not sure if I'm comfortable with that.

I will admit that I like younger men, still in their 30s.

Anyone with adult children ever date someone the same age as their children or younger?

Very briefly, when my kids were in high school I dated a guy who was barely legal. Felt like a cradle robber, and the only thing we had in common was liking to dance.

Most of the girls I have met from this site have been a few years older than me. Only a hand full of times I have dated girls younger than me. Some girls want an older man regardless because they feel that the its more manly. Theres nothing "Boyish" about it.

Its possible to date an older woman it all depends on how you market yourself. Remember don't mention anything about her age. Tell her how great she looks and so on.

Velma Valento,

If I were a 19 years old dude, I will exclusively date you, you are not just dammed good looking and drop dead gorgeous at you age, what rocked me is you know how to TEXT.

Nah, I don't intend to change my team in to a dude, I am content to be 59 old woman who doesn't know how to text.

bomber(d40455)- For me it's about common interests and frankly I would NOT be comfortable with someone that much younger than me.
A 19 year old is in a completely different stage of maturity than someone in their 30's or 40's.
My oldest son is 24, the idea of being with someone that I'm old enough to be their mother??!, not goin' there!

It depends on the person. Some older women feel that they don't have much in common with younger men. Or they think younger men are immature, only looking for sex or mommy figure. Having said that, there are some other older women that date younger men. Sometimes it's the older woman that is looking for sex with a young attractive stud. Or some older women feel that younger men are more fun and exciting to be with compared to men around their age.

For the past three years I have dated older women exclusively. By "older" I men ten to twenty years my senior. It works for me.

Contrary to the hype, most women are NOT looking for a younger man. I would say that 25% to 30% of the women in the age range I date on POF are open to younger men. Of those willing to date younger men, maybe one half of them are open to dating me. lol.

Everyone has their own reasons for being interested in an age gap relationship. The most common reason I find that women between the ages of 58 and 65 who date "younger" want somebody with more energy and a willingness to do more things together like travel or outdoor activities.

Guys who date older need to develop a thick skin. If two thirds of the women I am interested in are not open to dating younger guys there will be a good deal of rejection. Many of these are borderline rude and imply that I am a child. I find that insulting because I've raised two kids and have a successful career. At 47 I am no "kid".

...for some reason the original posting isn't loading. Perhaps all the EDers here have interferred with it - :-).

We are TOTALLY into younger men, if you are legal, intelligent and working then bring it on! I always date at least 10 years younger, to have intelligent conversations with men who work and think, and who can sexually perform. Men my age cannot, not without medical aid and it isn't free, so 90 % don't fix themselves.

Younger men bring fresh energy, ideas, jobs, earning value, into a relationship. They also drive their own cars as women do, have their own homes as women do, have their own jobs or businesses as women do, and can have orgasms, as women do.

We love you younger men! Welcome!!!

I am sure you aren't doing anything wrong. But why would you want an old hen when you could have a young chick? :-) I am 56 years young and have always wanted to be the young chick in a relationship. There are many Cougars out there looking for cubs. As for me, I want someone from my own era that I have common interests in music, we would remember the same television shows growing up and have similar memories of years gone by. Don't give up if you really like more mature women. But also don't forget there are mature and beautiful women in your own age group too.

I look at it like this, young men have one thing to offer Richard..and you if you know his nickname you know who Im talking about. Where as older men have Richard too, and their intelligence and life experience behind them.

Banana I thought it was a dancing pickle..

when i was 19, i had a 30 year old girlfriend. it wasn't something that could have lasted long, but i do have fond memories of her. :). i was working at this company and she was the uber hot secretary, so at the time is was exciting because we were sneaking. ah well, those wild oats and my past lifetime.

i think it's entirely up to the people in the relationship as far as who they want to be in a relationship with. as a practical matter, i think what happened to demi moore is the most likely outcome in the long run if there's a big age difference.

i have a couple of older women that i see from time to time. we'll go out once orr twice a month. they're very attractive women.
i take them out to dinner, we split the bill and talk. sometimes we go to the museum or the danceclub.

i'm 28 and one is 39 and the other is 51. i haven't had sex with either. but we do enjoy each other's company and have alot of laughs.

Yeah the banana is a tad annoying..lol! I was in a ldr with a younger man until he met someone else. But I still prefer to date younger than me , its just part of who I am..I date for personality, not age. Dating older never worked with me, and the men my age always leave for a younger woman.. I am one of those age is just a number people...We are not all the same, everyone is different, and its nothing changeable. Its too early to say anything one way or another yet, I do like someone younger now, but I really need to spend some time with him to see just where things stand.

Usually younger men are sometimes immature and are not financially stable and women are usually looking for stability.
