  • i always went for older men. usually about 4 years or so older. i just felt they were more mature and more experienced. my husband is 6 years older than me and i love him dearly.

  • I always go for older...not vastly older, just 2-8 years. Boys/men mature more slowly than girls, in general, so I found that these older men were more equal to me emotionally.

  • I was always attracted to older guys. Even if it was just a year old. I felt weird dating guys or being interested in guys younger then me. I never knew why that was. Even though I did date two guys younger then me and that didn't turn out well. DH is older then me by four years.

  • Always about the same age. besides my hubby only one other guy was older I think. I was thought as older men as old geezers lol

  • I went for men a few years older, then married one 18 years my senior, and after he died, I married a man 7 years older. I was always more serious than the ones my age, and I seemed to have more in common with older, but the 18 years difference was something we both thought long and hard about, before making a committment. We both tried to step back, but the attraction was so strong, in spite of the age difference, that we came back together again.

  • I preferred to date guys a little bit older even if it is a year or so. The guys my age were just so immature. I found an amazing guy who is about a year and half older than me and it works well for us.
