    I am in my fifties but like younger guys like in their twenties and thirties and forties, is that odd? And usually the younger guys like me also, so was that odd on their part? Just wondering.

    I tend to like older guys because they're more in touch with themselves....other guys my age are as shallow as kiddie pools and still fixated on silly shit. I appreciate a mature guy ^_^

    Is it because you don't think guys in your age group won't be able to "keep up with you"? Do the guys in their 40's have an expiration date for you?

    I find myself in the same situation. I don't know if its odd or not. I've done some research on this phenomenon and find it to be quite common....especially in the last few years it seems. As someone who has come out later in life after more than 40 years suppressing my sexuality (consciously or unconsciously) I don't see an issue with it. If someone young sees me for the man I am - my heart & soul, my stability, depth of character and capacity for empathy, which comes with 57 years of life experience, then who am I to judge them?

    Currently I have a friendship am with a mid-twenties young man and we'll see where it goes. Of course I'm a realist but I want to enjoy what life has to offer at this point in my life.

    I say follow your heart. And as for the people who may have an issue with it....well, that's their issue, not yours.

    Nope.There is really nothing unusual about this.

    SOME young(er) guys are attracted to SOME relatively older guys. This is NOT a default for every guy out there, but the phenomenon is pretty common across the cultures.

    If you like to think in terms of defaults, a successful older man/woman is likely to seek a relationship (sanctioned or not) with a much younger partner. Maintaining such a relationship is usually seen as a sign of worldly success.icon_biggrin.gif

    No doubt, a few people will raise red flags, claim exploitation, abuse, asymmetrical relationships, etc. Their concerns are usually supported by anecdotal evidence that may or may not hold the test of truth.

    What really matters is that every living guy reaches legal age at some point in his life, and is both entitled and obliged to call his shots. If he chooses to date a much younger/older partner, the rest of us have got to keep on living our lives, and leave the other guys to their devices.

    No it's not odd.

    Rare, like gay interracial dating, and dating against your clique,

    but not odd.

    No, there is absolutely nothing wrong with you liking younger guys. What I do find disturbing is how you won't consider anyone over 40....especially considering you're 58. Are you saying no one over 40 could possibly be attractive? And if so, what does that say about you? Wouldn't that make you automatically unattractive too? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Younger guys 'like' you if you are an older TOP.
    I do not see that going the other way, older bottom for a younger top.

    Nowhere did OP claim anyone over forty was unattractive. Don't put words into his mouth. He has a right to his preferences and he worded it all respectfully.

    At least he's confident enough to post his actual age in his profile. Since you don't what does that say about you?

    I think it's fine to like younger guys or guys at any age. I find myself liking guys in their 20s, 19 yo sometimes lol. But I'll stick to my age group like 10 -+ difference.

    It's all about individual preferences. I am always amazed that older/younger is made into some sort of major issue. All of us have different feelings, emotions, sexual preferences, different things that each of us feel a special connection to. If older guys are attracted to younger, and vice versa, then who the fuck cares. It only matters to the two people involved. We are gay men and we run the entire spectrum of emotion and personal preference. Nothing is written in stone.

    No, I won't attack your 15 year old pics, although they are pretty amusing. I do have a question for you though.....how exactly did you go from being 35 years old to 33? Share your secret and you could be very very rich!

    Is it odd? Of course not, even straight men are attracted to younger guys. Youth is beauty, age is wisdom. A better question is, is it odd to act on it?

    I think it depends. Each situation is different. But I think, given the opportunity, any older guy would. And for younger guys, I think there can easily be an attraction to some older men.
