What's the greatest age difference you're willing to date?

Give a range of old to young. I'm currently in a questionable situation and trying to see what the general view is

  • No younger than 30, but i would date up to 40 . I prefer older guys, coz they are more emotionally and mentally mature. Younger guys aren't at the same stage in life as myself , so in time we would gradually grow apart. I have a better rapport with older guys than i do with younger guys.

    • Eh, interesting, thanks!

    • I agree with this. The younger guys really aren't mentally or sexually there. Immature and only care about their own pleasure.

  • 21 > My Age < 35

    I want younger for sure. Mostly because I desire a family and seeing how I am in my early 30s, women are pushing towards their end for children; however, I would make a huge exception if 1) They were accepting of my "situation" and 2) I was attracted to them physical and mentally. I would never not give someone the benefit of the doubt. I wish the same could be said for older male virgins...

    • Sorry to hear that

    • Yeah, there is really no helping myself. I have no future. I could lose the virginity thing by a prostitute but then no women will ever accept me then either... I failed at life all because of virginity and not being like our culture in my 20s. I will never have the chance at my own family =(

  • I'd prefer not to date someone younger than me because I think I'm still super young so... I couldn't date a teen!! .. but I'd make an exception if we got on really well.. maybe someone like 2 years younger, so like 19 or 20..

    On the older end of the scale, I think I'd be okay dating up to maybe 38 or so.. There are some fine silver foxes out there!!! .. and it would be nice to be with someone more mature and reliable. :)

  • Too young is anyone younger than me. Too old is anyone over 38 years old

  • It's not really about the age gap it's more like about how he takes care of himself when he reaches a certain age. For example he can be end of 40s but looks like 35ish then I wouldn't have a problem with it.

  • 18 up to 40 even 50. I can't stand 16-17 even though it is legal age here and a lot of the time I'm uncomfortable with 18 too.

  • The best relationships I ever had were in a 3 or 4 age year difference. My friends who married guys 12 to 20 years older regretted it later in their marriage. Lack of commonalities, aging process etc.

  • It was 13 years older, when I was young and desperate. I'd prefer someone around my same age and slightly older, but at least over the age of 25.

What Guys Said 36

  • Depends your age bracket really
    But If i was a 23 year old male
    --> 19-26 ish is ideal. Max 35 ish i guess lol bah for guys it's an achievement to get that older women when a young chap

    Go as high as you want but I think 45 and above might be pushing it lol

  • You would be surprised on how little this matters. Most people usually date because they common interest, not common age. In the former you will see that having the same age increases the probability of common interest and goals. But this "tendency" doesn't means dating older or younger is "bad" or "good". So if you guys are enjoying yourselves, the question is obsolete. But remember that whenever an issue will pop up; the age will be the easiest target...

    • I think all depends upon... boy... economical... and. mental... status..

    • So we agree that the age doesn't matter much. Thats good. Culturally also dont you think? We have the luxury of saying in wrstern society Yolo, but someone in a village somewhere east might be force to a certain standard

  • For me personally 2 to 3 years apart going both ways.

  • If it didn't bother a woman being called my daughter then I'd probably go as low 30ish if she acts mature. I'd go as high as 55 because that's the speed limit, lmao.

  • Personally, I would date/marry a woman between the ages of 18 to 36 being that I am 26 right now. I know couples that are married that are 10 - 12 years apart and they are fine.

  • 17 ( legal here ) to 40.

    Ideally, 18-22 which is closer to me. But the world is seldom ideal and my crush is 17-18 so yeah.

  • Hard to say. Usually I say that life is to short to be thinking about ages. But I guess I would say from my age to 10+ something. Dependes at the personality of the girl.

    • Has that changed over time, or has it mostly been ~6 years in both directions?

    • As I get older I tend to care less and less about it. I feel like I get less picky over time.

    • I think that's common. The ages seem to be less and less bad over time. Like 60 &64 nothing. 18&14 eww
