Are you attracted to "older" men?

Posted by   + Show Post

Or do you prefer men closer to your own age?

I go younger.  My BF is 5 years younger than I am.  I've tried older, especially once I started dating again.  I was hoping for more mature.  Unfortunately, I did not find that to be the case.

I have dated men that were almost 20 years older than me and sometimes they still had growing up to do.  I am now with someone who is 5 years younger than me. In my opinion it does not matter how old or young the person is that makes them attractive.

Didn't go out of my way to date older, but ended up marrying someone 18 years older. We were together from the time I was 20-40.

Dont recommend it. Would love to date someone my own age now, but as a previous poster noted if they are 40 and don't have kids they usually want them or else they want to date someone in their 20's.

My guy is 7 years older. Previous guy was 11 years older. Age is just a number in most cases.

 I'm pretty much equal opportunity, but I think a lot of times physically I like older guys or find them more attractive though dating preference has almost always been close to my own age

My ex has a wife 16 years his junior.  He will be 54 in Dec.  He looks every bit 54 and then some.  His wife will be 38.  She looks every bit of 32 if not younger.  Personally, I would never date anyone 16 years my junior.  Once he hits 60 he slows down.  While I'm in my early 40's and wanting men more my age.  But, that's just me.........

I'm 27 and my dds father is 47. I didn't know he was 47 because he lied to me about his age and said he was in his late 30s. I would not have cared though because he was gorgeous. I have always been attracted to older men even since I was a teenager trying to date guys in their 20s.
