My ex was 6 months younger than me, and I've been on dates with a couple guys who were about a year younger before. I've also dated up to 14 years older than me. To be honest, I don't notice much of a difference lol age is just a number in a lot of cases when it comes to maturity. One of the guys a year younger was definitely more mature than the guy 14 years older.
One thing I have found though, is that the older guys are more looking for a relationship quicker than the younger ones. They also don't party as much, which is a plus. I'd prefer to date a man who is a few years older because I feel his lifestyle would be more fitting to what I'm looking for, and I'd trust him more as the "man" in the relationship. However as far as maturity? I haven't seen age as being much of a factor once you get past like 21.1
