    Out of curiosity
    How much of an age gap is everyone willing to go?

    How much younger and older are you willing to go?

    I think someone within 5 years of me, would be ideal. But I'd be open to larger age gaps, of they just fit better with me.

    5 years +/-. I was taking to a guy more than 5 years younger but he wasn't mature enough. I talked to a guy 10 years older & he was a total jerk/jacka$$. I'd rather date a guy no more than 5 years older than me.

    I won’t care much about the age gap.. as age is just a number! Depends if she is mature enough to handle situations.

    I think this is generally the norm nowadays, you'll see in a number of relationships there is an age gap. I've seen many relationships where there has been a 6 to 10 year age gap

    Hey everyone 😊

    On the age gap question, I'm not sure I care much. I generally have always preferred older women for their intelligence and maturity. But now that I'm in my mid-30's, there are a lot of women younger than me who also fit that description. For me to go 10 years younger is difficult to find a 24-year-old who is mature enough, but such women do exist. More realistically, upper 20's to lower 40's is my age range.

    I recently got out of a relationship with someone who was 26 and I am 29, almost 30 years old. Even though the age gap was only 3 years and he was very mature and successful for his age, I constantly found that he wasn’t on the same level as me emotionally and maturity wise. I think this experience taught me that dating someone who is younger then me just isn’t for me!

    In all fairness, there are people in their 50's and 60's that act like children. Maybe your ex will grow up in time, but maybe he is just an immature kitten. That doesn't mean all younger men are the same, nor that older men are different.

    I think at 29-30 you are at that magical age where you can date a wide range of people and have them meet the criteria of what you are looking for. Id say from mid 20's to 40 there has got to be somoene in there for you. Thats a pretty big pool to choose from, you can be selective and have lots of options i think.

    I work with people 25+ years older than me and guys around my age...I can’t tell the difference between them other then the fact that the older guys work without crying.

    He’s already 26 aren’t people already set in their ways by then?
    Everyone has time to grow but I mean for the most part by 26 we know right from wrong right?

    It's not about knowing right from wrong. I can honestly say I'm a better communicator than I was a year ago. I think most of us continue to grow over time. In fact, I guarantee there are some people who would have looked at me only a year or 2 ago and said that I was immature based their perception - which came from how I communicated. It doesn't matter that I was ahead of my peers right out of high school, managing on my own 2 weeks after graduation, and went on to become student government president in college. I had a FT professional job and professional licences before I was old enough to legally drink. Still, in some circumstances in particular, I have done poorly communicating even in my 30's. To some people's perspective (I can think of a couple of people specifically), they would say I was immature. I still know one of those people and would like to believe that she agrees that I'm better now than I was 2 years ago. I absolutely think someone as old as 26 can make improvements in 2 or 3 years because I've made big improvements in the past 2-3 years even in my 30's.

    Now if we are talking about whether one realizes it is improper to steal, for example, that is an entirely different conversation. Maturity is not about right vs. wrong... it's far more gray than that.

    My gf broke up with me like 2 weeks ago, right before all the shiit hit the fan.

    Hope not. As upset as I am, I don't wish that on her.

    When I was younger I dated older. Then I married the same age (a few months younger). Now I'm divorced I'm thinking I should have stuck with older. But dems slim pickings
