    When asked about age? Tell the truth. What is the highest age you have searched. Many times I don't use a range. Sometimes I go very old just to get an idea of how many guys there are over a certain age here. I also like to find examples of guys that look great over 60. Other times I favor somewhere from the 30s to early 50s. When I go for a narrow range I choice + or - 5 years of my age.

    porn: 22-33
    date: 28-39

    It's rare that I would consider someone older than I.

    Judge away boys. ;)

    (edit...I have never searched by criteria on RJ...was referring to gay guy sites in general)

    The only time we used this feature was to scope out possibles for a guy here who's in Florida. 49 matches! We used age (40+), physique, availability status, and a host of others.
    Way too cool. He said thanx and there's been a mysterious silence ever since. heheheh

    Mine has gone up over time.

    I'm 49 and I usually search between 42 and 58.

    An interesting twist on a popular topic (age differentials).

    Personally, I use age in searches for a whole bunch of different reasons (trying to find a guy that I've seen in real life, trying to see how many people my age are on a site, looking for people with my birthday, etc.). So the real test for me is on dating sites that ask for the age range of my potential match. For these, I never use a range of some + or - centered around my own. That assumes that we all mature as people in a linear relationship to our physical age, which is so not the case.

    So I use a very wide absolute range, which is 25 to 50. I pick 25 for the low end cause I think that age has just as good a shot at mental maturity as 55 does (with many exceptions, of course -- there are some amazingly smart and mature 22 year-olds on this very site). I pick 50 for the high end because, in my own very personal experience that doesn't apply to anyone else, I find that I have very little in common with folks that age and older, even tho they are only a few years older than me. And they most often aren't interested in me either, once they figure out who I am. I almost always get slammed for this, but I have stopped apologizing for "not acting my age" and this post is part of my "coming out" process icon_smile.gif

    I'll use XRuggerATX's classification.

    Porn Search: 18-28
    Commentary: Although this is what I typically search, most of the porno I like consists of men between the ages of 30-40. I guess I'm searching for a younger guy with the body of an older guy. icon_smile.gif

    Date Search: 18-32
    Commentary: I try to keep an open mind but 18,19 year olds usually are mentally on another island and as much as I hate the stereotypes, the generational differences begin around age 29. Age 33 usually cements it.

    Well so far my age range for dating has been between 18-28.
    10 year spread is pretty solid in my opinion. icon_smile.gif

    Rarely use it. I will occassionally look who lives in Toronto or the city I grew up in, but that is it.

    19- 30

    with the younger age ranges i'm looking more for maturity and worldliness, in the older part of the spectrum, i'm looking for them to have established themselves well and not be creepy :p

    i usually have trouble even being friends with my peers, let alone dating them- they have to be well ahead of the curve to keep up... but most of the significantly older guys i've talked to... well, there were probably reasons they were rocking the cradle lol, and that made me skittish. i'd say ideal for me is mid-late 20s.

    Keeping the above in mind...

    26 - 40.

    I'd usually say ±5 years, but would hate to exclude Tanker. ;)

    My past two partners have been quite a bit older than me, and I think I'm ready just to experience, well, a shared lived experience w/ regard to age. Last relationship I was in entailed my being the "daddy" to my older partner, and created some weird power dynamics with my both being younger and daddy. icon_smile.gif I kinda like being daddy, but that experience let me know that I do want more equity in a relationship - so am in the ± 5 - 8 year span. As if you all care. ;) Good to process though, thanks.
