Age difference is a thing

Discussion in 'Relationship Advice' started by Wrecky, Mar 6, 2017.

How do you feel about age difference in relationships?

  1. I prefer to have an age difference between myself and my partner

  2. I prefer to date people around my own age

  3. Age is just a number and in no way influences my dating decisions

    Why haven't I seen this thread before?

    I'm not dating, but guys my age are not really dating material. There are some exceptions of course, but most of them are more interested im games, action movies and soccer than in a decent conversation, so at this point in my life an older boyfriend would make sense. If I were dating a girl (who knows) I would prefer someone around my own age, unless she was really awesome of course.
    But that's all just now of course. Things may change dramatically when I grow older.

    @Karlijn As always you bring wisdom beyond your years. The only guy I ever dated that was my age was when I was 17. I dumped him after 3 months :hilarious: I'm sure others have had better luck but it wasn't for me. When you're older though, it doesn't really matter so much.

    Traditionally I've mostly dated around my age, but my last ex was about 5 years older than myself, when I was 21 and she was 26. I'm not really sure if I have a preference around age, it has more to do with shared interests and hobbies than anything else. With that being said though, I find that it's fairly rare to find people younger than myself with the same interests, so maybe I have a preference based on that.

    I've dated guys older, same age and younger. Sounds like a lot but I can assure you it was only 3 different people over a span of a decade.

    Younger one of alright, he was mature for his age.

    Older one tried to treat me like he was my father.

    Same age guy(one I'm dating right now) makes me wonder why I never tried dating anyone else the same age as me. Lol
