It's impossible to judge someone's age from the miniscule thumbnails they show here, it's even difficult to tell gender sometimes, and they don't post the member's age on those thumbnails. I've clicked on several profiles that turned out to be young enough to be my grandchild.
If you're embarrassed easily, there is an option to hide that you viewed someone's profile (can't tell you if it works though). There is also a "search by age" feature where you can put in a minimum and maximum age.
I don't feel guilty about looking at any profiles, that's why they're here.

Do you ever feel guilty for simply looking at someone's profile who happens to be much younger/older than you?

Of course not. If you read forums, you sometimes look at profiles to see who wrote something. So what?

For many years, [when film was King] Kodak reported that people were THE most photographed thing. It is simple Human Nature to be attracted to and inquisitive about faces.

This IS a shopping sight and faces ARE the commodity. Faces are usually the STARTING point or should be. Sadly, way too many emails are sent here from looks alone with little regard as to what info is IN a profile.

i never feel guilty. as a matter of fact i take pleasure in it. society puts pressure on you to makesyou want to feel guilty but that's all booyah.

we are all human beings. i look for women who are attractive to me and want the same things i want and who might enjoy some of the activities i do. most of the time that is women who are younger than me. i think i have a low maturity level.

If they are my sons' ages, then, no I know they are too young for me. The "wow look at hims" are two very handsome, muscular hispanic men who regularly visit my profile.

One does not drink, just what I really want in a guy(non drinker).
