I'm 19 and I like older men is that weird?

I'm asking because many times I've heard of other woman liking older men people say they just have daddy issues. So I'm a bit hesitant of embracing it.

  • No, it isn't. As this society and this world runs towards oblivion, men are becoming more shallow. Wanting maturity, decisiveness, and a guy who knows what he wants rather than the 30 somethings with the pre pubescent mentality of sex sex sex is admirable. Don't settle, but don't let any man touch your body sexually unless he's put in the time to get to know and love you, and wants to spend the rest of his life with you.

    You want someone who will take charge and be there for you, while honoring you. Many men just want innocent women, or younger woman, because many women today are jaded, angry, and cruel, it is partly their fault for letting a man sleep with them before he put his dues in, and partly the guy's fault for only wanting sex above her heart and spirit and everything else.

    It will happen, but don't let anyone take advantage of you. If you deny a man sex before marriage and he leaves, guess what, all he truly wanted was just sex. But if he sticks around, there's a possibility he will give you his heart, too, and in turn, you must give him yours as well. Guard your heart, be careful out there.

What Guys Said 23

  • The average age preferred by all males is 22. That means 80 year old men are most attracted to 22 year old women, because 22 year old women are at the height of their health and fertility. 50, 60, 70: all are most attracted to 22 year old women, physically.

    It's the same with women, but reversed. The most preferred age of females is 35 or something. I forget the exact number. But no, it's not weird. It's very normal. Women naturally seek out males who have proven themselves capable of surviving and providing for themselves. Typically, this means older men.

    We're the same humans that existed 20,000 years ago. Just with more knowledge. That means our instincts are 20,000 years old. And back then, it was really important for women to find a strong, capable male who had established himself and proven that he was capable of surviving to an older age. So it's more natural than weird.

    Haven't you seen it around your friends? Females typically date men older than them, at least by a couple years. Males typically date women younger than them, at least by a couple years. But it's still fairly common that males and females date with a significantly bigger age gap. Hell, my mom is 9 years younger than my dad. They married when she was 19, and he was 28. I'm sure that's pretty common with a lot of people's parents.

    Now. If you're saying you're attracted to like 60 year old men, yeah, that's kind of weird.

  • You can like whomever and however older they are. It's just what you like and what you prefer, and so therefore forget about what others think or feel about how you feel or think, because you can't control them anyway.

  • It is not uncommon - but girls wanting as big an age difference as you say are often seeking for that for the sole reason of someone having charge. Its less about the maturity level, but more about feeling safe and secure and being lead... which often hints to own shortcomings that you want to get compensated.

    Personally I think 3-8 years older for the guy is perfect - everything beyond seems to be too much.

  • Out doesn't matter what we think. My sister married an older man and they're great for each other.

    It's your life. Live it however you want as long as you're not harming anyone else.

  • Nah its actually normal and goes back a long ways. Older men like younger women cuz of perky breasts and better for child bearing and younger women like older men for the strength and stability.

    Daddy issues are a whole different topic

  • When you say older what do you mean? I'm personally I'm turning 23 soon.. I'd feel weird to date a girl that is 18(I know you're 19 it's just a comparison). I think any guy who dates significantly lower during those years of that drastic that maturity gap have a lot of issues. I'll always be attracted to younger girls and down to hook up with them but as far as dating.. that's another story entirely. Then again my parents are 7 years a part and they are happily married so I guess it's just different for everyone. I'd just take caution when you start dating past mid twenties.. you'll realize how weird and what losers are actually out there lol. Like I said I've notice that most guys who date much younger girls like that usually have a lot emotional issues and shit.. not all there. You're aren't fully developed and matured yet so you might not be able to notice the red flags. That's why these older guys prey on the young ones.. they are naive and innocent. They don't know better.

  • Older men have their shit together, finances in order, hobbies, been through relationships, both ups and downs so they know what to do. Buuuuut there are downsides like the one you mentioned above and a few others.
    Personally i understand the drawing to older men, guys my and your age can be... pretty generic in terms of emotional stability, finances and relationship experience. All of which certainly comes off as not all that great. Where as those benefits are added on to older men.
    Males our age that are mature like that are few and far between, still around but few. One of those pluses i can think of dating a guy our age is growing together, rather than learning from the older gent.

  • People like to label everything. While some younger woman have issues, not all do. Your just part of a minority of women who likes older guys, perfectly normal in my opinion.

  • No, I think you're smart. I dated a girl that was 18 when I was 30 for over a year. We actually met a year ealier before she was legal but we didn't do anything but talk and text some. Her brother was a good friend of mine and I was at their house weekly. Everyone knew that we liked each other but for her sake we didn't go out or anything at all until she was 18 and out of high school. She was one of the most mature women I have ever dated and it was one of my favorite relationships and guess what, we never had sex. She wanted to wait for marriage and she was worth waiting for in my mind. I don't care about age, I care about maturity, intelligence and a kind heart. There's many benefits to dating older guys. It's actually not that uncommon for girls to like guys 8-12 years older or older in some cases. Good for you, don't settle and be picky. It will pay off in the long run.

  • To me it is weird. I find it kind of disgusting if someone likes people way older than them. I mean, six or so years may still be ok. But a decade or two? C'mon...

  • I think it's quite common with women your age. The guys are more mature/confident and know what they want in life generally. I'm guessing that's the attraction for you anyway?

  • It looks sick. When you get the best years of sexuality, his will be died out. I think age must be close. Otherwise, it makes generation conflicts. Also it looks like paedophile. I hate it.

  • Not at all, I'm 19 as well and I started dating my ex when he was 32 and I was 18. He thought I was in my early 20s and I thought he was around 25.
    One of my celebrity crushes is Vladislav Doronin 😍
    My friends tease me about having daddy issues but they know I'm just mature for my age.

  • You know, there's this handy rule to see what ages are appropriate/not creepy for you to date. It goes like this:
    half your age + 7
    Since you're 19, it would be good to not date anyone younger than 16 (9+7). How to find out your upper limit, though? Simple:
    double (your age - 7)
    So, if you're 19, your upper limit should be 24 (12 times 2).

    What do you think?

  • Not at all! In fact, my boyfriend is 3 years older than me. I like to see it as age is nothing but a number. Just because you may be a certain age doesn't mean you're stereotyped into acting the same way other people your age do. Most likely you have a high maturity level and tend to favor men who act as you do.

  • Not weird when I was your age I used older men for money

    I never slept with them but I made them believe I actually liked them ha ha

    Older guys are sicker
    I had those losers buying me Victoria Secret, gucci, armani, true religion, going to restaurants and stuff

    Now I date men in their 20s or younger
    I prefer younger men because they are more fun and they tend to look better and last longer

    • Like between mid twenties to late thirties

    • That's not too bad. If it makes you feel better, one of my friends married a guy in his later 30s when she was 18/19 and now they're happily expecting their first child next month.

    • that is so sweet.

  • The guy I like is 6 years older.
