30+ year olds: would you rather date someone 10 years younger than you, or 10 years older than you?
Dear lindyj, I am 40, ex-military, and by sheer coincidence will soon be in New Hampshire! You look like my type! Here is my updated image:
We should get together! :D
Too bad you can't be copied.
I would rather date someone I like and not worry about if they are younger or older.
At my age someone 10 years older would be running into medical problems. So I will be taking an younger guy Queen cougar that's me!
The gender filters are so predictable.
Yeah I messed up. they're set now
Older women are the most beautiful in my opinion. I loved them when I was in my 20's and I find them more beautiful now that I'm in my 50's.
I'm 31. Dating a college-aged student would make me feel like I'm robbing the cradle.
Additionally, I find the difference is answers between men and women intriguing.

At 50 I'm far from fertile and all set financially. Dating a 40 year old would be nice!
⬆️⬆️ I think I'm in love :)
Mixed, If low 30s then 10 older, if high 30s maybe 10 younger, but it would depend upon the person.
But if they're almost 50 they're spectacular!❤️
I'm 40, I don't see myself dating a 50yo.
I'm 48. Subtract 30 years and you arrive at my ideal dating age. Math won't get any easier :)
I know I'm not old enough to answer this question, but I thought I'd give my thoughts anyway.
If I was 30, I'd rather date someone 10 years older than me. I'd need the maturity to keep me sane. Sex is also better with the experienced.
Definitely older. No question about that.
I've always had a thing for older women.
If I decided to date, it wouldn't matter much to me either way what their age was so long as we got along.
Done that. Older.
They're real and they are spectacular!
The age filters weren't set, I'm 19...
Bwahahaha! You're a cutie for sure!
But someone about 7 years younger wouldn't be bad. Mid 20's would be nice
Wait, I have to like my own comment... I'm stupid.
It's a stereotype, but like you said it's evolutionary, and also backed up by science. Which is why the results were not surprising at all to me :)
Isn't this interesting?
Glad I'm a woman who looks 10 years younger than I am! (Shhh!????)
I picked older but really would prefer someone as close to my age as possible.
Hmm...choosing between a 21 vs 41 year old male- DEFINITELY the 41 year old.
I think that depends on whether you're male or female.
I'm the same age and agree with your excellent logic!
I love older guys :) always have. But, you never who that next person is. Maybe he's younger and I just haven't met him yet.
I'm a 38 year old woman dating a 29 year old man. I never intended to look for a younger man, but all the men I dated who were my age were boring and had way too much baggage.
I don't think I could date a 22 year old. Maybe if they were exceptional, in the same camp I don't think I would choose a 42 year old either.
Not quite 10 but my husband of 26 years is 7 years younger.
I'm a male. I prefer older woman. I find women younger or around my age to be immature. I guess I'm the exception. I'm a cougar hunter. Something sexy about them. The confidence. no inhibitions. No time for for stupid games.
Prob not gonna date a 28 year old but you never know ;-)
a 20 year old air head!?
In the past I've always dated (and once been married to) younger women. Range anywhere between 1 year to 8 years younger. However now I'm "dating" my first woman that's older than me. I'm 34, she's 40. It's actually really great, 7 months into it.
Some men are really dopey at 40. So men are sweet and sensational at 30.
I say older.
I made that decision over 37 years ago.
My wife is 6 1/2 years younger. She was tolerable a few years ago, so I know younger would work out fine.
I have no preferrance in this area. When I was single I dated younger and older as well as matching my age.
I guess I'll like your comment so I can refer back to this poll now :D
Yup, maybe the old stereotype of men liking women younger (fertile) and women looking for a "good provider" who is older and financially secure isn't dead. It makes sense in an evolutionary way.
@tony: Do age filters or other filters work on all platforms, iOS, Android, and web?
Younger is Sexy.
