    I feel im a little odd but i feel very uncumfortable thinking of my self in a relation ship with a man over 32 years old but i also feel similar to guys underthe age of 21 is that an unresonable thought? wanting to date men around your own age, or being hit on by guy of similar "standard" yes there are exceptions to the rule but not to many.

    just wondering what are your thoughts?



    lets not make this a bitch thread.

    Why do your preferences make you "a little odd"? We all have our preferences. What works for you may or may not work for me. It doesn't make it good or bad, just different.

    it's okay to date someone who's older than you - as long as you two are comfortable with it and about each other. Usually, and I mean - usually - guys in their early 20s are not ready for a relationship - so someone who's 32 - is probably a good match for you.

    The problem lies in you not allowing your self the opportunity to develop something with someone you hadn't expected. When they don't check off your list and you immediately disregard them then you've just totally written off the potential for something good to happen.

    Besides whats wrong with a guy over 35?? gawd tons of them are just HAWT AS HELL!!!!

    I think it's fine to prefer not dating people outside a specific range. I think if you find you have common interests, you should still be open to being friends with them, though.

    i don't care about age. it's more about maturity, confidence, and a mutual attraction.

    My ex lover who died was 76years when I met him.
    So, I don't think there's any problem with setting up 'standards'.

    It's funny.. I find that most guys in their 30's don't want to date each other. Guys in the lower range, go for the younger guys in the 20's. And guys in the upper range, go for the older guys in the 40's. So there's nothing for us guys in the mid-30's. icon_lol.gif

    I think it's ok to have some "standards". But I don't think they should be viewed as rigid and absolute rules. Be flexible and open minded.

    I'd like to get my name on the list for these hot thirtyfive year olds.


    Really, MsclDrew; you need all the hot thirtyfive year olds?



    I can't have just one?

    If I was single, I really couldn't imagine dating someone in their 20's.

    Well, I don't think it's wrong but you really shouldn't limit yourself icon_smile.gif
    I actually prefer dating guys who are older than me ... I am 18, so if I was to date someone younger, it would be too terrible to even think about. icon_razz.gif
