I like older, as long as they aren't too old to have extremely different intrests (as in old enough to be my father). I am mostly friends with older people. I just get along with them well, I guess. That would be really weird if I dated anyone younger at MY young age.
I usually end up with guys a bit younger than me...I think mostly because I am in college and that age group is the one I am around most. Boyfriend now is 22(23 next week), last one before that was 22, and the one before that was ummm18... I am 27. I would or would have dated an older guy or a guy my age if the opportunity had presented itself and I thought the guy or girl was interesting.
definitely older. about 10-15 yrs is ideal. not just b/c of their personality but i like the way the look. i just dont usually get the opportunity. when guys approach me they are either younger or around my age.
I always dated guys about 2 or 3 years older than me, but never anybody drastically older than me. Then I met my husband. When we met he was 38 and I was 24. I assumed he was only 30 or 31 because he is very young-looking, so when he asked me out I said yes. At the end of our first date, conversation brought our ages out and I was shocked! I remember going home and thinking, can I date someone that much older than me? (we are technically 14 1/2 years apart) Well, the truth is I was already falling in love with him so I didn't have much of a choice! We moved in together after a while, got engaged, got married, and now here we are. He's 41 now and I just turned 27. To be honest, sicne that very first date, the difference in our ages hasn't been an issue at all. The only time it comes up is in occasional jokes. We have many of the same interests, goals, and values.
I've tended to date guys that were 2-3 years older than me. Although when I was 21 I did date a guy that was 30 but I was more mature and I did have a summer romance with a guy who was 18 when I was 22. My husband is 3 years older than I am. To me age really doesn't matter as long as both people are adults.
Generally, I prefer to date someone close to my own age. Always have. And then BOOM, I met my husband.
I'm 25, he's 37. go figure.
Although given his life until now (lived all over the world, extreme rock climber, etc.), I'd say we are evenly matched energy wise. I was always the nerdy kid reading a book on the swing set at recess.
