(*Grinning.) Why specifically that two-year span?
Personally, I was already in a very long-term relationship at those ages and I was more focused on getting my professional life in gear. I wanted someone who would support my endeavors (emotionally and physically more than financially). It's something I didn't have with the guy I was with. He was the same age as me (a few months older) and I liked that because we had SO MANY common (campy) references.
Before that age (roughly 18-24), I wanted a guy who wouldn't be too shy -- I was shy and trying to come out of my shell. I wanted a guy who understood who he was. Romantic was a big thing for me too, but never "bad boy." I was the "exotic foreign girl" and the "brainy chick," so older guys were really into me.
After that (roughly 35-pres), I still want the guy who is easy in his own skin, but I know myself now and don't need a guy to pull me out of my shy shell. I just want a mature guy who will be supportive but give me space to do things on my own; fun to be around; a guy who can be active but also spend quiet times. Romantic. Fit. (It's amazing how guys my age take such good care of themselves to be with younger women, haha. Enjoying the eye candy.) Way younger guys are into me, but I still prefer guys my age or a little older (six years older max; two years younger, max).
Being with a younger guy is interesting because the guy feels like he's really giving you something intense, but in many cases it's what I would have been caught off guard with when I was in my 20s. Being with SOME of the older guys is less intriguing because they've been through that "slam her against the wall" phase a million times and are looking for something new. They can be "all over the place" in terms of what they're looking for. Enough said.0
