    I'm 20 years old and my friend thinks it's weird that I like talking to older guys. I've only been serious with one guy around my age so far and I'm attracted to guys my age but I usually have more in common with guys who are older than me (like 25-40+ is my ideal guy lol)

    I don't know why but maybe it's because older men usually have their lives in order, they know what they want, they're not immature (usually) and they're just different than younger guys. But my friend is convinced this is because I have "daddy issues" and I'm looking for someone to replace my dad which is bullshit lol. I actually don't know my father but I'm not looking for a man to replace him and even if I was, why would I look for guys that I'm dating to replace him??? I don't wanna fucking have sex with my father lol

    Anyway I think my friend is overreacting and is just being an idiot and age is just a number to me tbh. What do u guys think?

    No it isn't. Older guys "tend" to be more mature, and most have gotten the partying scene out of their system.

    Nope not weird. People like what they like. You don't need to try to rationalize it for anyone.

    I will say that older men became a lot less sexy to me when things start getting serious.

    You start wanting to go backpacking, or relocate somewhere, or just basic stuff like staying out later together and start to find they're "too old for that shit."

    Then you start thinking about how you'll likely spend the last decade, or more, of your life grieving and alone.

    These days I just use em for sex icon_twisted.gif

    I go on all-day mountain bike trips at least once a week and usually more, I relocate 3-5 times a year for months at a time (it's my job), and I regularly stay up till 2-5am with the BMX crowd throwing down tricks and having a good time.

    Now if you ask me to go to the playground to play on the monkey bars, I'll say "I'm too old for that shit; let's climb a mountain instead." icon_cool.gif

    Everyone likes different things.. If it works for you, it doesn't matter why you like older guys or what your friends think about it. Just enjoy it.. As a young guy that likes older guys, you'll be popular so you can find a good guy if that's what you're after.

    Your friend sounds like an excellent example of why you like older guys better.

    As long as you're both grown-ups, the only thing that matters is that you like each other.

    No, it's not, but it's weird that you want a cookie for it.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I would say embrace it but still be open to any age group, as maturity is not dependent on age.

    (Single) hot and hairy daddies are pretty sexy. They're so attentive to your needs and aim to please. That's what I love about them. And they're cuddly.

    I've always preferred older guys. At a certain age it becomes difficult to find men who are older.

    One of the coxswains in my rowing club jokingly suggested I try cruising hospices.

    I think that liking guys 5-15 years older than you is not strange at all (you say your ideal range is 25-40). I get that at 20 a 25 or 30 year old seems like an older man, but when you are 30 and he's 35 or 40 you are effectively in the same age group. Past 10 years can create issues (if he's retiring at 65 and you are at the peak of your working life, for example) but even 15 years is not a really big gap.

    As to the "daddy issue", who really cares unless it is making your life unmanageable in some way, but in your case it doesn't even seem that you are aiming for men who are your father's age (unless he had a kid when he was somewhere between the ages of 5 and 15.

    No it's not weird.

    It might be a challenge as this is rare.

    Date guys, and be happy. If there is a guy you like, and he is older and you like him, great.

    This movie takes it farther than what you are talking about. It's on Netflix.

    since when maturity is based on old men who are seeking young men for sex or dating someone 20 years younger than them? That kinda makes them immature icon_lol.gif

    it's like pedos seeking for children
