Im curious about this issue. I know a lot of times women date men much older than them, but I rarely see a woman dating a guy younger than them. So would you date a guy younger than you? If you would, how much younger, and would you draw the line at a certain age? Why or why not would you date a guy younger than you?

I think that when you have a connection with someone and you are intellectually the same age, it can be easy to forget there is even an age difference. This is true for my boyfriend and me (he's 2 years older) as well as some friends we see occasionally (she's like 6 years older than him). You can look at someone and say I could never date someone with that much of an age difference, but then you can meet someone who is the same age as that other person and it doesn't feel like that. Obviously, maturity has a lot to do with it. Being in the same place in life is important. Somebody who's working to pay off a mortgage probably isn't in the same place as someone young who is more interested in having fun and having experiences. Numbers wise, I don't think I would go much younger if at all mainly because I lean towards being more mature than a lot of my peers, at least at this point in my life. So unless I met someone who was younger than me and had a similar maturity level as me, I probably wouldn't consider dating him. Honestly, if my boyfriend had been born the same year as me we probably wouldn't have started dating. The things he's told me about what he was like when he was 21(the age I was when we met) and younger are things I wouldn't have found to be very attractive about him. Fortunately for me, by the time we met he had grown into an amazing person who had the right priorities in life. That's much more important than a number.0
