I'm currently in an age gap relationship and am curious to what's the biggest age gap you would be comfortable with in a relationship . :) if you've ever been in an age gap relationship, what was the difference in age between you and your significant other.
(p. s just to clearify the poll is about the biggest age difference you would date.)
I was age 35 at the time i met my last girlfriend now ex and she was 18 as long as a girls mature and legal age I'll date her , i can't see why people gotta judge peoples preference on the age they date especially if the person is of legal age.
Up to 5 years older :) But really it depends on how you feel about each other. If I would fall in love with someone, it wouldn't matter. I have actually liked guys that were a lot older, the problem is I am underage and that would be a bit creepy :p you are in such different stages of your life and that is why I would wonder about what's wrong with the guy. But when you get to know each other I think it's different.
The best thing I have ever seen for figuring out the LOWEST age to date is:
half your age plus 7
I have figured it out for many ages and I def agree. but, there are exceptions to every rule. if it works for you, who is to judge. problem is when people fall in lust they don't always think long term. if your 20 or 30 and fall for someone 50-60, in 10-15 years that person is not going to move too quick. they are not going to want to go do many things a 30 or 40 yr old would want to do. do you want to do retiree things when your 30 or 40? people need to think of those things.
Age does matter in the long run. Marriages never last if the age gap is too big. I know that many people assume it can work, but once one of the partners turns about 50 or 60 then it becomes a huge problem. So for me 9 or 10 years age gap would be the max.
Not simple I'm 21 and would consider dating women aged 19 to 28. Although I think a woman aged 28 would probably just laugh at me if I approached her. This may be due to a démodé societal construct that men should date younger women.
A qoute that i live by os Love knows no age or race. Now there is some wiggle room with how big. I dont ever see myself with a 60 year old. But someone who is older and that i really connect with. I would consider it.
At my age people a few years older than me are a lot different in that they are more developed in their maturity and that they have different priorities and pressures in their life while people a couple years younger are also in a completely different life stage. Therefore I find that it's not very appropriate for me to date outside of that range in either direction. However in a few years things will be different and while I hope I don't wind up single with all my heart and soul if I did then I think it'd be fine to date people who are a lot older than me
Youngest for me would be like 15. 14 year old girls are still young and I think it would be harder to relate to them. Oldest for me is like 19, mostly because it seems girls my own age want older guys so Im probably going to be dating young
I'm 17. The oldest I would date right now would be like 24. When I turn 18, it'd be more like up to 27-28. If he's one year younger than me, then I would date him, but if he was any more than that, then he can forget it. I am very mature for my age, so I need a guy that is mature.
I've dated 13 years older (I was 28 he was 41), and normally always 5 - 7 years older... but now I'm all about younger guys.
I always said that I would NEVER EVER date a younger guy because I thought that it would make me feel old... but what I have found (after dating a guy that was 27 and since then several others that were 28 - 30) is that they are really mature - AND still "open hearted." They aren't jaded like the older men that I have met, who have had their hearts broken many times or just plain giving up on/ don't care about finding a real emotional connection with a woman.
I have been in one, and it was about a 14 year age gap. I don't know if it was right or wrong, but I did feel as if he wasn't as old as he was, and infact didn't even look it, looked about 25-28. That helped too, I didn't know his exact age till a couple dates in xx
9-5 years is the biggest gap I would date. There is 10 years between me and my oldest brother and if I dated someone older than him it would freak me out a bit.
I'm with someone at the moment who is 4 years older, almost to the day. I think it's a perfect gap for us, we work well together and compliment each other. I bring out his playful side and he brings out my mature side. Between us we can be the correct mood for a situation. And it's nice to have an adult relationship with flecks of childlessness.
The oldest... he was 10 years older. The youngest.. he was 10 years younger. I enjoyed the relationship with the older man. But I enjoyed the sex with the younger man. I am now in a relationship with a man 2 years older. He is perfect for me...
I have zero inhibitions about my attraction to men and women that are significantly older than myself. That said, interestingly, I am not that attracted to people even as little as 3 years younger than myself. Hmmm, age is not a factor for me.
My boyfriend is 7 years older than me :p sometimes i like it and sometimes it makes me afraid cuz.. I don't know he has already a stable life and may think of marriage and i am still young. Yeah thats it ^^
