My preference would be to date someone slightly younger than myself, but I wouldn't have issues dating someone slightly older either. I wouldn't go outside my age range though.

I would say my dating age range would be between 22-30. Outside of that is just getting too young or old for me to relate too.

Younger. 30s. For various reasons..

1. Possibilities of no kids is higher. Though maybe not by that much by later 30s.
2. More attractive (not gonna lie).
3. Less relationship baggage (a biggie, long term ones will cause baggage).

That being said, I might be partial to a bit older as well, given certain traits. Or same age. Hmm.

Outside of all that, I would say late 30s would be absolutely ideal though, but there would be a chance of bagging an early 30s without kids, and that **** makes a big difference (for various reasons, some of which might not be obvious).

Its not a huge thing though, there are way way way more important things than age for me.

my age range has been +/- 10 years and its been ok. i think 8 years younger and 8 older is my record. younger was more fun, older was more stable

Younger, but not by an excessive amount.

The world is not my home. I'm just passing through.

Solely based on age and nothing else, it would be older. But when other factors come into play, it's anyone's game.

Younger I guess but it also would depend on the person and how they come off overall.

Depends more on their maturity level and personality. Younger guys are hotter, older guys are more stable and know what they want.

Older, but I can make an exception for 2-3 years younger.
