Most Helpful Girl
I am 18 and I would only want to date guys that are around 27. Why? Maturity isn't the only factor I desire from men. What I also desire from men is stability and having a career-orientated and realistic mindset.
The reason why I don't date guys my age is that most guys are into partying, getting high, drunk, sleeping with as many women as possible. They are enjoying their freedom and embracing it. Nothing wrong with people like that, but I want a guy to have the same mindset and intentions as me. If I do find a guy my age that is stable, mature, career-orientated, intelligent and courteous, then great. I would not mind dating him. But how many guys my age are like that? I also want someone to look up to, someone more experienced in life and the society than me to help me integrate into it.
But that is only my opinion. Personally if you are talking about some younger girls in their early to mid teens: They want to date older guys to experience something different and out of their age group, to look "cool", "grow up" or to be socially accepted and integrate into society. Also they may prefer someone to look up to be there for them. A guy with more experience in life can appear to be more secure to them.
