Female; 29. Married. If I were single, probably my age up to 10-ish years older. Unlikely that I would (seriously) date someone younger.

Please elaborate.
I think he was being smug. On the previous page the same poster said he liked 18-25 yr olds.

I think it has to do with the maturity level on everyone's part. I have had relationships with guys from 3 years younger to 22 years older than I. It truly depends on how you connect, what goals you each have, and where along each other's plan you happen to fall. In all but one of those,I was the younger party. My current relationship happens to be both of us the same age, similar life goals and the most compatible in every regard. There really is no right answer to what the proper age should be, but you have to feel that proper connection.

Female, 42 - for a fling, 32ish to 52ish.
For a RL, 38 to 46, preferably as close in age as possible. I find men in their 40s to be at their absolute hottest.

F late 40's.

My relationships for the past 10+ years have all been with men 10+ years younger. Not intentional but most of the men around my age or older seem to either have so much baggage or there's a good reason they are single.

I am 22, i dated 20 as youngest and 34 oldest.
iv dated few woman that were much older then me, ae range 30+
and to be honest i preffer company of older woman rather then younger girls that are my age.
They are a lot more sensitive, interesting, kind and experienced and great to be around. The only sad thing is that i cant seam to find a woman that would like something more serious.

I received a lot of compliments from the older ladies i dated and i would date woman up to age of 45, im afraid that older then that wont be interested in anything more serious... but im always up to try
i love to love!

I'm 31, the youngest I've dated is maybe like a year younger? Oldest I've dated is almost 44. I have never been into younger men, I always liked older.

When I became more cognizant of it, I noticed that I find some older men VERY attractive! Less common than men my age, but they are there. Happy

My buddy BD is dating a woman that is 50. He is 46. I saw her pic on FB and she looks 38. Its all about looking good inside out.

Visually I want us to look like we are in the same group. So that is 30/40 something.

Mid 30's female here. Last guy I dated was in his mid 20's. Good looking, great job, a little immature but seemed to be an old soul at the same time. Crazy chemistry at first, but I have to lead so many things in many areas of my life, I didn't want the responsibility of always having to lead the relationship, too. Call me old-fashioned, but I think the man needs to take initiative at some point, and I had done all of the initiation in the beginning of our relationship and he had a hard time with planning dates during our relationship. Anyway, he wasn't up to the task and we fizzled out after 9 months because neither of us were very good at communicating what we wanted/needed and he just didn't care to try.

So I think I'm done with guys in their mid 20's. I may go 28-40.

I am a 22 year old female.

For relationships: I don't date anyone who isn't at least 21. If they can't order a glass of wine at dinner with me, I just feel old. My cut off age is probably somewhere around 25-26.

For hook ups/whatever: Probably as young as 20, old as 30.

l have some weird thing goin on. l'm early 50 but it seems anyone that seriously likes me is usually early 30s , they usually think l'm a lot younger .
But l think that's too young bc l'd be worried about her mid lifing or God knows what else later on.

My only gf since my divorce was 40sbut really good for her age and still really youngish and that really suits me so l think somewhere 40s is good for me.
