  • I am engaged with a girl who is 3 years younger than me, she is in some aspects more mature than me, I am absolutely fine with her being younger than me. Anyway, I think that in your case, that's understandable. Let me explain, most girls rarely get engaged with a guy younger than them, they mainly prefer an older guy since they look for that sense of protection and because guys grown later than girls (from a moral point of view).

  • I have but I think I've learnt that i need/want someone a bit older than me, as the things I want in life right now, a lot of guys my age don't really want :/ It'd also be nice knowing that for once i won't be the 'mature' one in the relationship!

    • totally agree with you :)
      Me as growing as the oldest sister and the more mommy like model in the house I think a lot more maturely than I should for the good and for the bad

    • and for the bad and that just gives me a hard time dating cause I need someone thats a lot more mature than the usual guys my age

    • Thanks for the MHO! :)

      Ah i see, i get what you mean!

What Guys Said 37

  • Yes, I would as long as it isn't too much younger (up to 5 years is okay, more is too much). Being quite a bit older than you, I can tell you that age becomes less and less important the older you get. Partially because the same time period is not the same anymore relative to your age. For example 2 years are A LOT for you (the difference between a 14-year old and a 16-year old is huge). For me, two years is a difference that's practically insignificant. I assume that is why some 60-year old folks can date people who are 15 years older/younger than them. At one point, it just doesn't matter so much anymore.

  • It's actually women my own age who turn me off. Older or younger by at least five years is ideal. Ten years would be better.

    And that's not some kind of age-play fetish or whatever, it's because the girls of my generation are all SERIOUSLY damaged goods. I don't know what happened to them, was it the TV programming, subliminal messages in their music, their fashion magazines, or what. . . but something really bad happened to them all at a young age and now, it's impossible to be in any kind of serious relationship with them. Their attitudes towards men, towards themselves, towards working hard, towards sacrificing and making due, it's impossible to love them unless you're a multi-billionaire with a cuckhold-fetish. And that's their dream man, too. Somebody to buy them everything they could ever want while they sleep around with the hottest guys they can find.

    All of them have a big age gap :/ which is why it never worked.

    • Most guys date younger girls at least for what I have seen :) My original question was supposed to be would girls date youger guys and would guys date older women?
      Would you ever try or have dated a woman who is older than you?

    • Show All
    • out of curiosity why?

    • To be honest I haven't got a excuse

  • Yes, because it's often not the age that matters, but the personality and quality of experience, not the quantity. This does not always come with age. It's the person that matters, not their age.

    • I think for guys its more obvious they will so perhaps I should have asked it like this: If girls would date younger guys and if guys would date older women?
      Guys dating younger girls is something very common but would you date an older woman? :)

    • agreed younger no and older is ok as long as the age gap isn't something crazy although I dont really mind age gaps

    • Show All
    • I'm just kidding it's ok lol

  • I would consider the intellectual capacity of the person as well as physical attributes.. being young is okay with me if our thinking match.. because for all I know there are a lot of people who are my age who don't think at all like me..

    • Yep and this question was mostly targeted to girls and I got a ton of answers from guys and guys mostly date younger girls so Im asking the opposite XD
      Would you date an older woman?

    • Sure. πŸ‘
      I give myself a 4 year gap.
      Anymore or any less seems like too much of a generation gap.
      If you know what I mean.πŸ˜…
