So, I'm a young guy, but 95% of the time I'm attracted to peoplemuch older then me. Is this a problem? Is there like a stopping point age wise where it's not attractive?
theantijock saidI was always sexually attracted to much older guys until I became one. Though my first 2-year relationship was with a guy my age, my first 10-year was a year older and my 2nd 10-year almost 8 years older. Now in my 50s I mostly prefer my age to a reasonable-to-me younger or just a little older, though since burying my last two, my friends tell me to go after a young one, joking that they'll last longer.Much older = only an 8 year difference?
theantijock saidMy point was that though I was sexually attracted to much older guys, I tended to develop lasting relationships with guys nearer my age. That you would seek to mock that is typical of the crap I've read you throw at others.It was a little TL;DR so I used selective reading.

malefeet saidI like dating young guys because you just know that sooner or later they are gonna need a spank.
Global_Citizen saidWell, as a guy who's almost 40 and would probably now be described as "older" and who generally prefers younger guys, I'd love to say "No, no problem dating older".
However, I do think there is some wisdom in the adage of half your age plus seven. As much as I might like younger guys, I couldn't see myself having a realistic relationship with someone younger than 26 or 27.
You're 18. What is the age range you find yourself attracted to? If you're talking 40-something and up, I think you need to be very careful. Someone who's 40+ and wanting to date someone who's 18 is probably going to end up hurting you and/or using you in some way. Be very cautious.
