    All my life I always wound up with people who were older than me. Anywhere from 1 year to 7 years... and now I'm with a guy who is 2 years younger than me and he's the one I want to marry. Go figure!

    Then allow me to reassure you - not all older gentlemen are that serious. I'm 42, and my GF regularly tells me I'm goofy, or that I'm acting like a 6 yr old or 16 year old. I love being goofy and I love being playful and making people laugh. I can be serious, and i'm good at it - but please don't think that older means too serious.

    That's how it is for me with my bf. He's 30 years my senior, but he makes me giggle because he can be so goofy and ridiculous. He is intelligent and accomplished but sometimes when we're together we act like little kids.

    As for my personal preference, I don't have one. I've dated younger- college freshmen when I was a junior- and older- 10-30 years my senior. I admit that the younger men I've dated ended up being man-children, although there's a certain appeal to being able to hug them, look down, and yell BONER ALERT!

    I don't like the idea of restricting myself to an age group. Age is only one part of the equation. Personality, looks, and how they treat you are so much more important.

    Half your age + 7

    This is the minimum # to not be creepy.

    i like older men because
    1- more stable
    2- tired of playing games
    3- because they already had enough fun they are ready to settle down
    4- so i feel SUPER hot next to them and im like the little trophy lol...

    i just like older guys... idk... i am more attracted to personality than the physical looks...

    Maturity is the key. Not age.

    I usually am attracted to younger - I like the energy. :) Obviously I need them mentally mature and stable and done being little boys, but if they have it together and are about 5 years younger then me I will find myself attracted to them.

    People find I look much younger than I am. I'm 26 (turning 27 in April) and people often guess I'm 21-23...

    So I find younger guys are attracted to me, and I find them really cute! But I'd like to go for someone my age or older but I seem to go for like 21-23 year olds :S I don't know...

    My husband is 10 years younger - I'm now 40, he's 30. 2 weeks shy of our 6th wedding anniversary - it works for us. I have dated older (not much though) - younger guys do it for me!

    I'm married... my husband is 10 years older. I tried dating younger once ( I was 27 and he was 21 ). The oldest I ever dated was 47 and I was 28. I found I had the most in common with the 10-15 yrs older crowd.

    Older or younger, have experienced both, no preference as long as the cuddles are good. :)

    I don't think I've really got a preference. My husband is 3 years older (exactly, we have the same birthday :smile: ) but in the past I've dated men a bit younger, but generally never more than 5 years older. I did briefly date someone who was 30 when I was 23. Alternatively when I was 24 I was out clubbing I met a lovely guy who told me he was 21...turned out he was not even quite 18! That did not last long lol!
