ANSWERS: 56
  • I wouldn't date anyone who could be my dad. I think 16-17 years would be around that. Maybe 20 if I found someone. But I'm with a guy right now, so it doesn't matter what age I'd date since I don't plan on dating anyone else =P.
  • I have dated men 15 years older than myself and 10 years younger....I would not go much further higher or lower than that.
  • I don't date 30 year olds. No matter how good looking they are.
  • wait so how bout you meet him at 40 but a couple months later he turns 41 *dun dun dun* lol
  • I don't think I could bring myself to go out with anyone more than 10 years older than me. No more than four, five, maybe six years younger either.
  • Love can be a funny thing, so there's nothing definite, but at least younger than my youngest parent would be most comfortable for me. I don't think I'd be comfortable with somebody older than one of my parents at all. Five years is a good age limit when you're first 20/21, and then 10 is good, but not definite, is what I'd say.
  • There are 10 years between me and my baby, and that is way cool with me;)
  • no...that would be silly to judge a relationship on age...you cant control your feeling about someone based on his/her age....that would be robbing yourself...;)
  • Nope. Age is just a number. I wouldn't be so rigid in my thinking. You might miss out on the man of your dreams because he's 41.
  • Age doesn't matter, to a point. I wouldn't want to date someone who always asked"WHO" when i named a good singer. HAHA. When both people are around 30 and above, the sky is the limit. The ages you mentioned seem good to me. Whats important are the values you both share.
  • I cannot see myself with any man younger than myself. Even 2 years younger makes me stop and think. That's just me. At 45, there is just no way I'd every feel comfortable with someone of say 23 years. For a relationship to work, both must be comfortable.
  • the only limit i put is that i won't date under-age women...i.e. children, otherwise i can date whoever is willing and i'm attracted to them...
  • I don't think I would date someone outside of a specific age bracket, about 10yrs older or 5 yrs younger than me.
  • i don't know how old i would go but as i get older the range expands+4.
  • I prefer women close to my own age. You have a lot more in common which makes for a better relationship. My opinion anyway.
  • Minus 5 years for 30 year old is sufficient!
  • I'm 29 too, I like guys who are a little bit older than me so late thirties is perfect early forties at a push ;-)
  • age doesn't matter to me as long as we have a common interest and are attracted to each other
  • Im 32 but Ive dated 18 year olds but id rather them be atleast 21. I like em young what can i say. Id date no one older than 36ish.
  • yeah, they gotta be within ten years of me. I'm 25 so they cant be ten years younger, at least 21. But 35 is probably the oldest woman i would date.
  • age does play a little part in dating for me. but im not super strict on the age of my boyfriends. im 17, so any where between my age and about mid 20's is good. probably no older than about 26..=)
  • Like to date and DO date are two different things. I certainly wouldn't date under 18. My preference would be 30-50 (I am 40), but have stretched outside of that range.
  • When it comes to men, I am not, in the slightest, attracted to guys younger than me, and I don't really like to date men even my own age. I don't think I've EVER dated a guy my age. I prefer my male partners to be between 10 and 15 years older than me (I'm 27). No older or younger. It's not a conscious decision, I'm just wired to be attracted to older men, I guess. Always have been. I am also into women, and I don't mind being involved with younger women, though.
  • I would say 5-10 years age difference would be comfortable for me. I can not imagine dating someone who was born while I was in high school. "And what will your daughter be having for dinner?"
  • well i'm 26 and I'm dating a girl who is 20...lol it's strange at times but not so bad i suppose...
  • It would depend on the person, with me. I've always fallen in love with their personality and that leads to everything else becoming attractive. Example: If Rorschach from the Watchmen really existed, I'd be on that like white on rice in a glass of milk on a paper plate in a snowstorm. Sugar cubes and all. 'The end is nigh!' Jackie Earle Haley - Talent beyond measure. Yum. That's only one example though. Haha. I see getting involved as a connection of the minds and souls, not the date a person was born on or even their physical features. Though, looks are a plus. Another man I would date in a second: George Lucas. Genius is sexy. The person I am with is 33 to my 26, that's a 7 year difference. So, to close a long-winded, rambling answer. No I do not place limits on the person I would like to date.
  • yes-nobody less/more than 7 years younger or older than me.(Im 18,and i wouldnt care if i dated a guy 7 years older than me).
  • Yes... I think everyone not a gold digger naturally would. But im afraid the older I get the higher up they go.
  • Yes I suppose anyone not a gold digger naturally would? But im afraid the older I get the higher it goes. *When all else fails, lower your standards." Kidding... I'd rather be cryo frozen than date an old man.
  • No more than a 5 year difference, what are you doing dating 40 year olds?
  • I am 29 and would only date a man 25-45...with a few exceptions.
  • it depends on the ages of the people. because i am 17 i wouldnt date someone over age 30 or anyone UNDER 15... : / but when i was 16 i wouldnt date anyone over 18. so it depends on my age :P
  • I am nearing 50. My lower limit is the age of my oldest daughter plus 5 years with the upper limit ten or so years older. It depends mostly on shared interests and abilities.
  • I'm 32 and my partner is 42. When we first met I thought he was around my age and he never corrected me until we were chatting about work one night and the sums didn't add up as to how long he had been working for a living! He thought I would have run a mile - I didn't! He doesn't act or look like a typical guy in his forties and if young enough in outlook I would date someone 20 years my senior but perhaps no more if I was single. My biggest age gap has been 14 years - and again he didn't look or act it.
  • Yup... my limit is the time test half your age plus seven. So the youngest I can date is 18.5 (as I am 23) and the oldest I would date is 32
  • At 69 I dated a girl of 24 and we had a great time. at 70 I have dated another girl of 28. There is nothing wrong with dating older men. Most of us can be a lot of fun....so don't sell us short just because the hair is gray or we have grown through our hair on top! We have lots of life left in us and the younger the girl the younger we feel and act as well
  • As a general rule when I still dated, I looked for ladies no older than 5 years and no younger than 6 years from my age. My wife is 4 years - 10 months younger than me.
  • No age as long as over 18.
  • I'm 40, and although I find younger men attractive on the surface, I haven't met one I'd consider dating. I prefer a man between early to late 40's. Anything beyond that seems to old. But, you never know who you'll fall in love with until you meet them.
  • You don't know what you're missing, girl....
  • I would like to say I dont care ...it is all about love. But then again I am 29 and I would not date soemone who is 80 :o)
  • i am married, but when i was single, i stayed within 5 yrs of my age in either direction. I didnt have many older ladies show much interest. and i didnt have much interest in younger ladies.
  • It seems like the older I get the bigger my range gets. I was trying to keep within 5 years, but I really like someone who's almost 10 years older than me. If I could make an exception for him, now I don't see why I shouldn't date others that 10 years older. And if 10 is ok, why not 11, 12, 13... I don't know where to stop now, lol. I've been thinking about this lately.
  • Ahhhh sometimes putting an age restriction can limit you .... When I was in my 40's I dated an 18 year old ...THEY made they first move ... it lasted for over three and a half years ... So; NO , I do not place any limits on dating /relationships as long as BOTH parties are over 18 years of age ...
  • I'm 19. were I single I could not date under 18. other than that the younger the better when age is the only criteria. I doubt I would date someone over 35, but I have no rule... if she was hot and had a compatible personality... money would help too... assuming I became single this month I would focus on 18 to 25 because I want many more reproductive years... I love kids. but I would not close my mind to older.
  • supposedly there is a formula to compute for the acceptable dating range. (age - 7)* 2 = upper limit (age/2) + 7 = lower limit i.e., if i'm 20, i could date someone who is between 17 - 26.
  • i A, AND WOULD ENJOY A YOUNGER WOMAN, YOU SEEM WISE AND WONDERFULL, YET, FORGET WHAT PPL THINK, ARE YOU FUN? ARE YOU GOOD CONVERSATION?, CNCEDMDUDE@WORLDNET.ATT.NET
  • if i wasnt married i dont think it maters as long you like the person and they would like you. im 43 and like younger people to talk to and to go out with.
  • well yes limit is 45 for me but being honest its not even age that concerns me at this point i dont want her to have kids that are same age or older than me. so that actually i dont mind kids just not like that its way too weird and uncomfortable oh and im 30btw
  • 5 Years either side of my age is my limit! i dont feel like you can properly relate to someone with a much larger age gap.
  • Yes, I do. I'm 32 and I won't date over 45.
  • OMG, thats a good point of view. been there than that and i regret if for the rest of my life! stick with your limit. those 40ish guys, they suck in anyways (their boring as hell, they're out of style and most of them are out of shape and hairy too, yeow!). well, unless we're 40ish too, u know what i mean!
  • no. if both are comfortable then it is ok.
  • I like older men, but I don't think I'd date anyone more than 20 years older than me (of course, I would make an exception for someone like Alec Baldwin or Alan Rickman! Mmm. lol). Women already live longer than men, so if I married a much older man, he'd die early into the marriage and leave me a widow for a really long time.
  • for me no one over the age of 23 i am 17
