Probably older or same age...younger aren't really too set in who they are as a person. Tho younger is more likely to fix my not very experienced requirment. Soooooo its tough to say.

My last bf was older. My current bf is younger. I don't think the age thing makes that much of a difference, really.

I like younger coz I relate to them more I like 10 yrs younger lol
I think mentally i'm a lot younger then my actual age of 30 coz of my lack of social experiences/ development since I was 14
and some times I like guys 1-2 yrs older then me

oddly i've only ever liked any guys my age or older, with one exception. (it also has to do with not socializing with guys younger, since i didn't at school and the group of people i mostly see are up to.. 6 years older, i guess). it's not really something i always think of, though. once you get to know someone you get a feel for their maturity level and if it's within the same range as yours its not something you'd keep in mind. i tend to feel like a kid around a lot of people, but it's more of a paranoid SA-thought about appearing too young and having them not take me seriously. i look a few years younger than i am and also sound it too. :| i don't like it most of them time but i don't worry about it as much as i used to

I want a guy about the same age as me, but I would go about 2 years older or younger if I was attracted to the guy.

I'm 25 and I'd like to date a man in his 30s. As for a lover I'd defnitely go with a man in his late 40s early 50s...hell yes.

older... more experienced and hopefully more mature and hopefully better off financially.

Older (45-55), no taller than 5'8" and preferably with a receding hairline... that is my favorite look. Not sure why but every guy I date looks like this.

i've never dated anyone, but im more attracted to older men. i don't think i would ever rule anyone out because of age though. Unless it was illegal.

coudn't agree more. the only thing that really steadily changes with age, is your age.
this is true but sometimes people just have certain tastes. for instance I am ALWAYS checking out the older men be it in real life or in literature or the cinema. I just like the way men look when they reach that age and they have taken good care of themselves. sooooo sexy. That said, I also have dated 4 years younger and 22 years older. I guess it just depends on how you hit it off, but sitting here right now I'm digging the grey...hell yes.

I like same age or older. For some reason, it never occurs to me that a guy younger than 19 or 20 (or more than two years younger) is datable at all. I don't know why, I just do.

That's a very valid point. :)

This topic just gives me a feeling that most women probably won't consider dating me at first glance; even the ones that are younger than I am. I'm going on my mid-20s, but I look very young (~18ish), and because of this I only seem to attract the really really young ladies. So I can understand those that would say dating someone a lot younger than they are would feel socially awkward and unacceptable.

This is just a minor rant, nothing to be taken seriously.
