What is the maximum age gap that you'd want between you and your partner?

I probably wouldn't date anyone younger or older than me who is more than a couple years younger/older

  • I used to say no more than 10 years, but I met an amazing woman who happens to be 15 years younger and we fell for each other almost instantly (my age is wrong on this site and I can't change it). I struggled with it at first, but I'd be a fool to let age get in the way.

  • I recently moved my age gap limit. I just met this really nice guy of thirty-two and he seems like a gentleman. I've noticed that I attract older guys anyway, due to my mature nature, so yeah, thirty-two it is.

  • It depends. If it's someone the age of 20 then I'd say eighteen is the lowest and twenty five the highest, if that someone is forty then I'd ±10 years is fair game.

    There was an XKCD about it which had a standard formula for this.

  • Divide by two plus seven. The difference between your age and the calculated one is the maximum gap.

    If you are 40, the gap can be 13 years. However, the gap for someone who is 27 has a maximum of 6, so that won't work out.

    Those calculations are guidelines based on nothing of course. They give only an estimation of what is socially acceptable in a western civilization. But who cares about the opinion of others when we are talking about true love?

  • No age gap limit as long as both understand what they are getting into and happy to do so. My girlfriend is a lot yunger than me n we together since she was 18. She 22 now

  • Personal preference, there should only be 1-3 year’s difference. But there’s nothing wrong with a 4-6 year difference. Any more than that is pretty weird though

  • Interesting! One of my first questions on this site was very similar to this. I'd say a girl who is 24 is about the youngest I'd start a relationship with and 41 is the oldest.

  • I would never date in general, but let's say I did. The girl would have to be younger than me. I'd go as far as 20 years

  • That's really gonna depend , I've met women my age that act like spoiled children. And I've met younger that are more mature.
    But I'd say maybe no more than 10 years.

  • I've dated significantly older and younger women. For me, attraction is psychological as much as physical.

  • I think about ±6 years, if I could get a date. No younger than 18; 34 would be pushing it.

    • @sidvt not more than 3 because it would be too much for me and when I think about marriage I would like the person to be closer in age to me...
      It is my opinion for me... But I don't know, anything can happen because I hv never dated so kind of difficult to say something beforehand

  • 5 years older, I wouldn’t date anyone younger than me.
