I will state my age range again. For fun as long as I am attracted to her I would say 27 to 67.

Realistic 36 to 50. To be honest. Unless a woman is low key and chill between age 20 to 27. Forget it. Same with guys. I think that people between the ages of of 18 to 27 should just get their career under their belt and have fun and travel. Not get married and have kids. Burn all the self centered stuff out of your system.

That's because men often value fertility and youthful beauty in a woman.
The women who choose older men are looking for emotional and financial stability. They want a man who is more seasoned and can offer them perks that are absent with men in their age group or younger.

I wouldn't feel comfortable dating anyone 10 years older or younger.

I'd go ten years up or down in theory, but actually I prefer people my around my age, more in common and feels balanced.

For me. Its all about activities. I want to be with a woman, that I can at least go to rock/jazz/folk concerts. Check out cool resturants. Not just sit around. I have female friends that are within 10/20 yrs of me.

The one that is 65 is very warm to me. the 35 is good, but sometimes lacks that warmth. I see younger women come off to me as entitiled. They think that most guys are weak and will do whatever they say. So sometimes Age is relevent.

I would like a woman that was born in the 70's. That just feels right to me. As long as we look good together. We also get along and have common interests. Thats all that matters.

I'm 41 and I question anyone that puts some arbitrary age limit on relationships. Obviously, I can see generational differences and emotional maturity differences possibly being an impediment to a LTR. But then again, I have had relationships with 20 somethings where we had a great connection and 40 somethings that were so jaded and bitter that any connection was impossible for me.

At the end of the day, I can't see seeking or denying a certain age if there is mutual attraction and you have that vague and elusive "connection".

Most People are friends and stay within their age range. I am 45. I doubt that I will try to date a 20 yr old or a 70 yr old. Its too out of my age range. If I factor what I want. So my limit if controlled is 30 to 50 or so.

Again its all about what you have in common ground. Romantically I will have a natural age limit. Friendship wise. I will have a more wider limit.

I thought I wouldn't date more than 5ish years older, but I recently was attracted to a 39 year old. He looks like my ex and not 39 (whatever that means, 39 is still young) but that's over almost 15 years my senior. Instead of daddy issues I got ex issues

As a women, would you be afraid of people name-shaming you if you date someone 20 years your senior?

I am kind of in a dilemma. Guys around my age (+/- 10 years) either are not attracted to me or they just want a you-know-what.

I have a make friend that is 4 yrs younger. I have a older female friend that is 20 yrs my senior. I am 46. I feee like Mr. 4 yrs younger. Our age differences are more extreem. He seems way more into his video games and digital entertainment more than ever.

Ms. 65 soon to be 66. She and I are 20 yrs apart and I think we click. When we have lunch together every 2-3 months. Its usually 3 hours.

I think its all about connection. I am more introspective and want the best for my life. That may make me a bit more in the pocket for some people more than others.

I'm a 22 year old male, I only date older women. I like em mature, curvy, and delicious. I like 35 year old milfs because they know how to **** so they can teach me a few moves and ride me on the washing machine. Plus I herd like women are in their sexual prime in their mid 30s.

Just out of curiosity, how frequently are you finding these mid-30s women being attracted to 22 year olds? Where do you meet them? How does it play out? What do they find so appealing about you? Because no woman I know over 30 (or 24, for that matter) would ever want to date a 22 year old male.

Please elaborate.
