What are your thoughts on dating guys considerably older or younger than you? Is age really just a number or is there some arbitrary cut-off where a guy is, or should be, out of your range?

withHonor saidOr that the young guy was looking for a sugar daddy so he can afford all the drugs he needs to escape from reality.

or the fact that some people try to live their lives outside of commonly imposed gay and societal morality clichés.
people go through multiple relationships in their lifetimes (gays or straights) these days, and it is not uncommon to see 25 year olds with those that are 40, and not reading too much into it. if it ends, it's not the end of the world. but, finding love is what many people miss out on, because of the excessive emphasis on artificial barriers. living on the margins (although increasingly that is changing in some places also), makes gay people privileged to experiment with any kinds of relationships, which don't rely on what other people might think about them. so, my take on it is enjoy the ride while it lasts.
looknrnd saidAge is just a number. If attempting older, you'll find a number of guys that use their age and experience as leverage to control the relationship. If going for younger, you'll find neediness and immaturity at times. Yes, the stereotypes for each age group have plenty of justification, but there are great exceptions that should limit your restrictions on who you date. You'll never find Mr. Right if you don't shuffle through all the Mr. Wrong's.>>>>>>>>>>>> I think this is totally up to each individual, guys at both ends of the age spectrum like or cannot stomach their opposits in age. I'm amased at the number of young guys in their lower 20s who really like older men, not all by any stretch, but more than I would have thought. A lot of it depends on the younger guys maturity level whether or not it can work out dating an older man. I've dated younger guys but mostly my own age, or within 10 years, are though really is in the head though. unless of course your 90 standing on a banana peel with one foot and the other in a pine box. Ha !!
Delivis saidI would not date someone much younger or older than me. I want someone in about the same stage of life as i am.
redheadguy saidDon't give your youth away to someone a lot older you won't get it back.
