For you personally, how big of an age difference are you comfortable with?

    Well, there's certainly an ewww factor but then there is if you think about your parents having sex, or two lesbians, or your sister, or just about anybody that you wouldn't choose for porn. Most women I know just lose interest in the actual sex act after menopause. I think it is partly hormonal but partly physical changes that make it less comfortable.

    Eh, younger women go with older men (fo whatever reason), so seeing the reverse, doesn't surprise me. As long as they're happy. Live and let live.

    Personally, my cut off right now is around 50ish. I mean, I have met a few guys who were above 50 who I thought were attractive and I'm sure were nice men but I just feel like I'd prefer to be with someone closer to my age so we can both experience live together trying new things.

    The problem I sometimes get when I think about dating an older guy is not being compatible due to lack of experience in the world. But that's just me.

    With that said, I think it'd be hard dating someone 5 years younger than me as well... lol

    If there's a mutual physical and emotional attraction, there's a chance. Age is no issue as long as he's legal.

    I would not date anyone younger than 20 because I know I was a shite at that age. My upper limit would be about 55 because I would want to have as long as possible with someone and any older than that at the start of a relationship I would worry about them getting ill.

    10 years age difference, for some reason, I'm really into guys in early 20s lately. Especially if they're slim, cute smooth...I may have the twinks complex.

    My most recent ex was 16 years older than me.

    I think if you're a practical person it can be difficult if you're honest about expectations.

    If i am 50 and my partner is 66, that's going to be a huge difference in appearance. At 50, you could still probably date someone 30-40 if you take care of yourself, how is your 66 year old partner going to look to you when a cute 35 year old guy or girl is eyeing you at the gym. How much less are you going to be willing to put up with their bullshit when you are far less attracted to them physically?

    I guess there is the "love conquers all" set but in my observations love might conquer a bit, but after a few years, a few decades, love gets boring as shit. Some people do better with boredom and routine than others. At that point i think it comes down to what type of person you are and what you value and believe.

    I guess if you're the "true love" type, you might see the world one way. But if you are more cynical, it's easy to imagine if your partner was in your position, they'd leave you or cheat on you with some younger, it just so happens you are the younger partner.


    So i think it comes down to an honest assessment about yourself. Relationships are hard even when two people are compatible.

    Wow. That's ... insane.

    I'm 23 and I think my limit would be 45. I like guys in their 30s.
    Guys my age are children, they don't know anything. Completely immature.
