  • Its not that I'd be turned off if a girl was older than me. I'm just the kinda guy who always has one eye on the future, and if i was going to be with someone long term, i wouldn't want someone who is gonna grow old and lose her beauty before i do.

    Therefore, I'd highly prefer my age or younger.

  • I won't set a specific number because I think it depends. On the guy, the situation, my current age. I think same life stage is a good rule. I'm in college, so he should be in college. A graduate student maybe, but I only say that because my love interest is about to be a grad student. He's 23. When we met 4 years ago, the difference was too much, but I feel we're equal now in terms of maturity. He's more experienced, but I don't mind that. I like it actually. As a virgin without a prayer, I'm ok with him knowing more than I do as long as it's not too much 😂

  • I'd go from same age to 5 years older maybe. It's pushing it a little, but I'd be chill with it.

  • I think 5 years older would be my limit.
