Guys and girls, do you prefer to date older or younger?

I personally prefer to stick to guys my own age and always have. I want to have a modern relationship with a man my age, but I have dated younger men and older men as well as guys my age. I’m not biased either way nor am I passing judgement.

My reason for asking is for a social experiment that I’m conducting. I’m working on my bachelors degree in psychology and I’m currently researching individual preferences and interpersonal relationships. I’m not going to post this poll into my research or use it as part of a class discussion as that is not legal. I’m only going to view the results and then use them to draw my conclusion. Thanks in advance 😊

  • While I have a preference for girls younger than me, a good connection is far more important.

  • Never dated before, but I'm only 22 RN, so in terms of an age gap, I'd only go like 2 years (school years), either way.

    Ideally, I'd prefer someone my age and I do think the '2 years either way', is close enough to that.

    The older your get, the more acceptable a bigger age gap is, I feel, though likely within limits.

  • If it's just dating, it doesn't matter as long as I like her, but I would only want a serious relationship with someone close to my age.
    I, however, attract a lot of young girls and older women. The ones my age never show much interest.

  • I’ve always dated younger guys. I don’t look and act my age so I tend to develop connections with guys who are younger than me.

  • I'm open to date either. But I prefer younger TBH.
    If a girl is nice age doesn't matter for marriage
