  • My boyfriend is 12 and a half years older than me, and it works because our maturity levels are around the same, I've always felt older than I am and we are going through similar situations in life. Because of my maturity, I don't think I could date anymore than 2-3 years younger, but its hard to judge as often it completely depends on the people involved, i. e. their maturity, situation in life and interests.

    I knew I wanted to date older, but didn't anticipate falling in love with someone 12 years older, it literally just happened, but he was similar to me in many respects. If he had been married before or had children I wouldn't have pursued it purely for the fact that those things are completely different life experiences.

  • I'm 24. I'm not really into big age gaps. ยฑ2 years would be fine. More than that and people start to be in a very different situation in life, which I don't want in a partner. Of course if the person otherwise had everything, age wouldn't be a deal breaker. The age gap I prefer is just due to past experiences.

  • I don't find people much more than 5 years younger than me to be as interesting as people close to my own age. I don't want someone older because I really want any future partner to outlive me this time. (I know this is pretty selfish, but I'm a bit of a mess right now and can't imagine going through that again.)

  • Really depends on the person, but if pressed for a number, I'd say around 20 years difference.

  • I always liked older guys. The seem more mature and gives me the feeling of security for some reason. I could date someone up to 12 years older but not more. I think my top is around 37 38

  • The largest age gap I've had in dating was 13 years older. Not to say I wouldn't go that far again (for the right connection) but ideally I'd say I'm looking for someone about 3 to 5 years older, give or take a few.

  • I'll always go as low as 18.

    I mean I'm not any more mature now than I was at 18, and they say girls mature faster. ๐Ÿ˜œ

  • For a partner? Not too extreme a difference. For a fling, pretty much anything is fine. So 12 if we're in international waters...
