I seem to get along better with guys either a little older than me or is a little younger.
My boyfriend is a year and something months younger than me. Though I keep forgetting he is. Since I feel like he acts WAY older than me. :D He may look a little older than me too. Though that's only because he's a dude and can grow a mustache and beard. I know if he shaved that shit off. He would look just as young as I do. Meaning around 15-16. :D Just by this comment i can already hear him hissing at me. MUAHAHAHAHA!
Just as long as she's 21 or over (so we can go to bars :P ).
But really, I don't care too much. I've dated older, younger, and my age.
However part of our compatibility seems to be due to our respective birth orders. I'm the youngest brother of brothers, and I seem to get along best with girls who are the older sister in their families.
I have dated all ages and its about chemistry with that person. I tend to find the younger, the less in common we have. Older, I have more in common, my age, they are married with kids so its hard dating around my age.
Definitely older, younger girls younger than me tend to be a lot childish, this was even in my teens, and even when they were like 5 years older in my teens. Which is why I was interested in a bit older or complex women.
Based on my maturity level, I'd prefer dating someone a little older. I've tried dating guys my own age but they're usually too immature for me, I just can't handle it. I can't mentally connect with them and have intelligent conversations with them.
