How Old or Young would you Date

At age 45 turning in 46 in March 2017. The highest age range date I would date would be 11 yrs my Senior. The Youngest. 27 although It really should be 36 or so. So basically within 10 yrs of my age give or take a couple of years.

Thats a full fledge Love relationship.

On the pure Selfish side just Sex. As long as I don't look at her as a daughter or mother. Anything goes. Although I doubt I would go younger than 24 or older than 70.

Dating for social interaction? Doesn't matter beyond having a good time.

Serious LTR? My age or older, so late 50's to late 60's.

Thats if control in age was a factor. If I met a great 27 yr old or 55 yr old. My age range goes out the window. I doubt I would be with a 70 yr old no matter how hot she was. I also would want someone to compliment me. As long as people don't look at them with me as a mother/son-Father daughter vibe between them.

I think people should specify if they are male or female. Women tend to be ok with dating older guys whereas a lot of men don't want to date older women.

I'm a 45 year old dude. I'd like to say I would seriously date any girl over 30 but these millineals drive me nuts. I think 10 years junior and maybe 1 year senior is all I can do.

Male. I've dated as much as 10 years older, and two who were about 27 years younger, when they've come after me. One of the latter was a FWB for 5 years. My usual range is no more than 10 years younger or 3 years older, for casual or serious, but I'd go as much as 30 years younger (so about 30 yo) to 10 older if we seem suited to each other.

"They" say the basic rule for guys is that the minimum age of a women you should date is half your age, plus 7. Take from that what you want. So if you're 40, you should stick to women 27 and up, so "they" say.

I'm 30, in recent years (when I was 27-28) I've dated girls as young as 21 and I wasn't a fan of it. Sure, they look great, but mentally they're just in a totally different space. They have different priorities and inclinations that aren't analogous to an older person's, and they don't have much life experience. It's not for me.

These days I'd hesitate to date someone younger than 24-25, and in honesty, I wouldn't date someone older than me. That being said, I don't really "have" to.

Who exactly is "they"?, usually when people say "they" it refers to random people.

Yes, I meant random people, but I was acknowledging the random, arbitrary aspect of it -- that these people are just random people and you should take their opinions with a grain of salt.

I'm 38.

For a long term relationship I'd say 28-40, but would make exceptions either way if we really clicked.

For a one night stand or a short term passionate fling, between 18 and 80 if I felt attracted enough. Although between 40-55 ideally, as I'm most sexually attracted to this age demographic of women. Women under 30 generally don't appear on my radar.

If I was single, I'd probably try to stick within 10 years in either direction. I'm not saying that would be a hard limit, but I'm imagining it would have to be a pretty exceptional case for me to seriously date someone that far in age from myself.

33 soon, ten years younger and ten years older seems reasonable.
