Older, less bullshit that way.
Younger girls, at least in my experience, tend to be immature. They rarely know what they want (in both relationships and life in general), they play games, and they usually don't have their shit together. Older women are the opposite. They usually DO know what they want, they DON'T play games, and they DO have their shit together.
Yes, I know there are older women who act like the younger girls I described. And I know there are younger girls who are more mature than the rest. But a few exceptions to the rule do not make the rule as a whole invalid.
I'm willing to be with a younger girl, but I will have higher expectations of her.

It isn't mandatory for me, but it almost always turns out that way for me. I would say my theory as to why is that those types of men just tend to have a better head on their shoulders (in my experience) so I am more attracted to them. I have a similar range to you: 1 - 6 years.
