Are you attracted to "older" men?

Posted by   + Show Post

Or do you prefer men closer to your own age?

First...how old are you? And did you ever have uncertainty about dating younger?

I have had guys approx 5 years younger express interest but I worry that they will only want sex or be at a different point in their lives like being ready to start a family, while I have been there and done that. Or feeling insecure about my 40 year old body.

I would love it if some of the mamas who are dating younger could share about your relationship and your thoughts on these topics.


Quoting v2011:

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.

When I was in the range of 18-24, I did not like men my age. I preferred them to be around 28-30 but no older than 30. I'm almost 27 and I'm not totally against guys my age, and would have never once thought about being with a much older man. Many people find this strange, but my current boyfriend will be 60 next week. He really doesn't look that old either. Even the daycare owner my son attends was shocked to hear how old he was (she had to confirm with one of her daycare workers that is related to him).

My son's father is 10 years older then me. There is a guy who is 25 (I'm 34) trying to take me out. I'm hesitating.

My ex-husband and I were 6 months apart. I had a guy that was 3 years younger express interest in me... It was just too weird for me and he seemed really immature. I just got married to my love who is almost 13 years older than me. It's not an issue at all until we start talking about dates. When he was graduating from highschool, I was graduating from kindergarten :)

I prefer my men older, they tend to be more mature than men my age.

I prefer men in my age range(27) but it seems that they are not mature. The ones who are a good fit for me are (40-65), but I have never been in a relationship with that age range.
