  • When I was 21 I was dating someone that was 42 all was really good until he let it slip that he was married (mind you I had been to his house and even spent the night I really had no clue). I got up left as soon as he let it slip and never talked to him again. He had mentioned us getting married etc. I didn't see the age as an issue.

  • I think I could only go 10 yrs either way.

  • I have dated men up to 20 years older than me. If there's a mutual attraction between consenting adults I don't see the issue. Though normally the significantly older men turned out to be very immature.

  • I'm 10 yrs younger than my SO, but I would go older than that, maybe 15 yrs.
