30+ year olds: would you rather date someone 10 years younger than you, or 10 years older than you?
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.
my hubby is 7.5 years older, so 10 older wouldn't be much more of a stretch! definitely older, though there are certainly some younger hotties, but most of them are too immature in their early 20's for me.
Younger is Sexy.
I'm 60. I don't know many 70 year olds that could keep up with me.
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.
The wife is 8 years older so younger seems logical.
I'm not making the connection with "so"....
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.
I said older. I can't see myself dating a 36 year old, but I'm definitely open to any age. As long as we are a good fit, I don't care if they're older or younger.
a 20 year old air head!?
Prob not gonna date a 28 year old but you never know ;-)
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.
I picked older but really would prefer someone as close to my age as possible.
I say older.
I made that decision over 37 years ago.
Married someone 9 years my junior and we just celebrated or 17th anniversary.
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.
I would rather date someone I like and not worry about if they are younger or older.
Some men are really dopey at 40. So men are sweet and sensational at 30.
But if they're almost 50 they're spectacular!❤️
They're real and they are spectacular!
I have more in common with people younger than I am. Put me down for younger.
I'm 40, I don't see myself dating a 50yo.
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!
Most men say younger and women say older as expected.
But someone about 7 years younger wouldn't be bad. Mid 20's would be nice
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.
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 think I'm in love :)
Too bad you can't be copied.
Mixed, If low 30s then 10 older, if high 30s maybe 10 younger, but it would depend upon the person.
Done that. Older.
age had little to do with. it's more about how we get along together.
Hmm...choosing between a 21 vs 41 year old male- DEFINITELY the 41 year old.
I'm 34 and my fiancé is 25.
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.
Definitely older. No question about that.
Isn't this interesting?
Glad I'm a woman who looks 10 years younger than I am! (Shhh!????)
I think that depends on whether you're male or female.
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.
The gender filters are so predictable.
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.
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 :)
At 50 I'm far from fertile and all set financially. Dating a 40 year old would be nice!
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
Bwahahaha! You're a cutie for sure!
I'm 48. Subtract 30 years and you arrive at my ideal dating age. Math won't get any easier :)
I'm the same age and agree with your excellent logic!
I have no preferrance in this area. When I was single I dated younger and older as well as matching my age.
My wife is 6 1/2 years younger. She was tolerable a few years ago, so I know younger would work out fine.
The age filters weren't set, I'm 19...
Yeah I messed up. they're set now
I guess I'll like your comment so I can refer back to this poll now :D
Wait, I have to like my own comment... I'm stupid.
@tony: Do age filters or other filters work on all platforms, iOS, Android, and web?
