Would you Date someone older or younger? And why?
Updates: Most Helpful Guy
older yes - more mature, knows what wants, already settled in regards to kids (at my age). often times, more attractive in various ways including physical. Better chance to have compatibilities, things in common, things to talk about sometimes...
younger yes - more energy, more youthful beauty.

Dated or marry? Of course I'm a little young to be thinking about marriage. But in terms of dating, I've dated both older and younger, and for different reasons, it's nice to date either. That being said I have no preference.
Older or younger. If we connect on important things, what does age matter?
My policy has always been around 2-3 years younger or 2-3 years older though there are exceptions to that rule.
I've dated younger or the same age as me. Nowadays I am more open to dating an older woman than I used to be. :)
I always felt best with a 10% age difference up or down.
Preferably someone younger. But I'd date both ways, depending on the girl.
If I was looking for a date , I'm not. Then it wouldn't bother me if they were younger or older if there was chemistry between use and we clicked
I prefer my age or younger but no younger than 18.
I always have dated younger, and I mean always like even as a kid
Either older OR younger. Age isn't a big thing to me. As long as we find each other attractive and compatible, then I couldn't care less if they were younger or older.
My first girlfriend was 2 years older than me
My first crush was 8years older than me So it's like idc If she's young or older Awesomeness is what matters to me 😍
Up untill my early 30's I mostly dated older than me. Especially in my 20's. Now I tend to stick closer to my age. Abd younger.
I only date younger women. Older women are past their prime, have kids, which I won't accept and shitty attitudes.
Both. Younger because they look better. Older because they are wiser.
Younger or older, I want both!
When I bother with it, I ONLY date younger. Preferably in their late teens/early 20's, though last year when trying to forget about a 22 year old, I did dumpster dive and date a 30 year old with kids.
I'd date someone younger (18 minimum), but I'd rather not date someone older than me.
Younger for sure. I think 3-6 years difference with the girl being younger is perfect.
I've dated women who were of the same age, and who were younger than me. I'd like to date older woman. They are more mature and more experienced so it will be a good experience for me too
I am dating someone older. Why? Less bullshit, that's why. lol
preferably younger. if older than not by mouch
I'd even date a zygote ;)
It depends on how much older or younger, but yes I would.
Definitely younger, even a lot younger. Probably not older.
If I found her attractive and I got along with her
Yes and Yes and why not? I do categorize people based on age.
both of them, why not? but not too young or too old obviously.
i have and i will again...

I could easily go either way; I gauge it on personality and how attracted I am to them. However when it comes to dating younger I'll only date typically 1-2 years younger than me.
id rather older or same age. I'm sick of dating younger guys tbh. by younger, i mean 6 months. i want a MAN.
Well, my boyfriend is 6 years older than me and it's working out pretty well. Lol I don't really care about age, as long as both people are legal adults, I don't think it matters much.
I've dated older and younger before. To me it doesn't bother me since the range of our ages seemed fine to me.
I prefer someone close to me in age. It's the range I feel comfortable with.
I would like to date older guys like 2-3 year age difference is fine by me. I like older guys because they are a bit more mature, and know what they want in a relationship.
My ex is was 14 years older and we still get on really well.
I tend to date older guys, maybe when I'm older I'll consider dating a younger guy but I can't go much younger at 19 😂
I say it depends really I've dated someone who was like a few months younger then me and someone who was older, but I guess it depends on the person.
Older. Have been for years 👍🏻 I think guys get better looking with age and I have more in common with older people in general than people my own age.
Preferably I would want to date someone my age or a little bit older, no less then two years younger.
I dated older, and younger in the past. If i were to date younger now, it maybe as a fling. I don't know I look at personality, so age won't be a turn off for me once it he isn't past 10 years my senior or 3 years my junioer.
Slightly older is my preference because majority of guys who are younger than me haven't really grown up yet and I also don't wanna feel like the old hag in the relationship.
Older. Not younger. Or someone close to my age.
Older, if I were to date because I don't feel comfortable with him being younger than me.
Yes Maturity is everything if you know how to listen and express a certain level of knowledge im all for it! + some (if not all) guys really DO look better with age!
I will definitely date a older person... becoz I like mature guys over those creepy n immature ones
older... just weird to date someone younger than me. plus i like older men
Older because something about the idea of dating someone younger than me just puts me off.
Of course!! the age is not the reason for wich I will loose the oportunity of be loved.
Younger I always prefer younger I've dated older to but honestly depends what people want nothing wrong dating older or younger.
Older - men are generally more immature. Sorry but it's true...
Older. I feel more secure.
I tend to get along better with older but im not adverse to dating younger...
