Older..definately.<br><br>
I really cannot say why...<br><br>
Most of my closest friends are older, so I suppose that influences who I feel comfortable with.<br><br>
But having said that, it is merely a preference. Or at least it has become one as my best relationships have been with people older.

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I've tended towards the younger side, but that is not for the best. (And I only mean 3 years younger at the most)

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.

I was married to a guy 10 years older than me. I'm now with a guy who is almost 4 years younger than me. Younger is definitely better in my opinion <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

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 don't date much (don't like it, don't see the point in it) but the few times I do the guys/girls have always been older. I don't do that on purpose. I was just always the youngest in the class.<br><br><br><br>
As long as they're somewhere in my range I do not care for age (or sex for that matter). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Generally 2-10 years older than I am, though if I met someone amazing who wasn't in that range, I wouldn't turn them down. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

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.

That's awesome Spa Girl.<br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
I'm 25, he's 37. go figure.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
XOXO<br><br>
