Is it weird to be attracted to older men more than guys my own age?

Like most people my age would think it's gross being attracted to someone way older but I'm weirdly more attracted to them than guys my own age. By older I mean 30-40's. I'd never act on it and I still am attracted to guys my own age, it's just less of a physical attraction.

  • It is a tad uncommon yes but not unheard of. There is obviously an underlying reason, could it be guys your own age don't tick all the right boxes in terms of maturity, success etc.

      I think older guys are just more confident and generally better conversation, I don't know

      I'm quite mature for my age, i've had a couple of people mention that they thought i was 28/29 rather than 23 (which is how old i was at the time) unfortunately a lot of guys are player types, but those are the people i actively avoid, i can not stand lads

  • No, I'm the same way. Older guys are way hotter to me. They're more confident, they're more established, and they treat girls better. Plus, I'm much more physically attracted to them. They have a manly look that younger guys don't have.

  • It's surprisingly more common than you probably think, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    I've been on the receiving end of a younger woman's attraction a few times, myself; and I know other guys my age who have been, as well.

    You're perfectly fine.

  • No, it's normal for girls. Girls my own age want nothing to do with me, but girls 16-19 flirt their asses off.

  • Yes, it's normal and i don't find it weird. I'm attracted to younger girls
    who are legal age. My sister , she's age 47 and would date guys 20
    years older than her self. I think love has no age limit as long as it's
    legal in the eyes of God.

  • 10 years plus is no big deal, I think. 20 years does make a significant difference in time. But hey, each to their own!

  • Not really, unless you're talking elderly old. The older you're talking, the more weird it is to me.

      What do you mean by that?

    • 4d

      Biological clock hits everyone, it just hits women harder at around 32, but that doesn't mean the male sperm count and quality doesn't decrease with age

  • no it's not we are the best.
    i love younger girls you should definitely act on it
