  • I think what matters most is that you're at the same stage and life and have the same goals. If one is looking to settle down and raise a family, but the other is not -- not good. If one is preparing for retirement and the other one has young kids -- not good. If one is enjoying traveling the world and the other is focused on getting through school -- not good.

    Also, age difference matters for what *type* of r/ship you want. Some people want an asymmetric r/ship where one partner leads the r/ship -- sets the tone, pace and agenda, and the other follows. Others prefer give and take in a partnership. If the former, sometimes an age difference can help. If the latter, age difference can get in the way.

    Also, age difference depends on how old you are. At 18, four years is a significant difference. At 60, it is insignificant.

    I've dated women a few years older than me and those 15 years younger than me. Both my marriages have been to women one year younger than me.

  • I am open minded when it comes to age.

    I'll date about up to 2-3 years younger (cut off is 20), anywhere from 3-6 (maybe more) years older, or my age.

    My boyfriend and I were only born one day apart. Same year. Lol.

  • Well, some idiot made up the arbitrary formula of half the guy's age plus 7. So (31/2)+ 7 = 22.5. Sounds okay to me :) Actually, seems a bit young. But the formula has spoken. Maybe a few years older for a bit more experience and maturity. 23-28 would probably be ideal.

  • I don't date younger than my sister (3 years younger than me). I'll go a little more in the older direction though. Due to my bad experiences with TWO Libras born twelve days apart in October of 1972, I know that eleven years older is too much. So within three years of my age older or younger is probably best for me. Though it'd be so cool if I got to love someone who was born earlier in 1983 (I was born that November).

  • Preferably older, up-to 30, wouldn't mind someone a couple of years younger, that's an exception though.

  • I don't really think about it to be honest. Someone who is relatively around my age I guess.. The older I get, the less I care about age.

    I'll take a shot in the dark at 20-35.

  • I personally think that older women (~6 years) are more attractive, but finding someone of my own age means that we'll probably be together longer before one of us croaks. So, I say same age.

      You you stated what the age of consent is in your age but then you proceeded to say that you wanted someone who was 15 to 21 years younger than me thus meaning the girl would be from the age of 9 to 15. Now if your age is wrong on your profile how the f*** am I supposed to know? So who's the stupid one again bro?

      ***younger than you***

  • a couple of years younger than me... early twenties I guess

      @Sasha07 What? Why?

    • Show All
    • 2mo

      @Levin I suspect most wouldn't. You'll notice my answer was 16 plus and attractive to me, so basically I don't care so long as it's legal and there is mutual attraction. I care very little what others think about who I have sex with, which is probably not the case for everyone.

    • 2mo

      @Sasha07 Kid? Biologically 16 year olds are not children. Legally they are above the age of consent. 16 year olds are not kids, they are young adults. There is nothing moraly wrong or unnatural about finding 16 year olds attractive.

  • i dunno, i'd probably have a girlfriend that is the most, 5 years younger than me or 3 older, but i dont think age shud be an issue when ur with someone unless its like 15 years or more i think.

  • I prefer guys who are older than me 5 to 10 years. I'm 19 and guys around my age seem to not take things a little serious when the occasion applies, only some do.
