What's your dating range in terms of age?

I can date anyone from 20-35. The reason: I can't connect with older people on an emotional level. And I don't like little kids (ugh).

It'd be useful if posters gave their own ages as well.

by Anonymousreply 203/13/2013

Okay R2, I'm 20.

by Anonymousreply 303/13/2013

I'm 57, and I'll date anyone who gives me a second look, because I'm just that pathetic.

No, seriously, I prefer guys aged 40 to 60.

I'm 44

by Anonymousreply 603/13/2013

I'm 26

My range is 18 - 34

by Anonymousreply 703/13/2013

Over 90, with no heirs , a lot of life insurance, and a weak ticker.

by Anonymousreply 803/13/2013

25 to 55.

by Anonymousreply 903/13/2013

I'm 22 and I would date 18 to 30. If I was being really picky, I would say 25 to 30. Anyone younger than that would have to be very mature for his age.

I have a small bandwidth. 2 years older and 2 years younger. Don't like younger that much.

by Anonymousreply 1203/13/2013

There's a 20-year difference. I'm 39, she's older.

I'm glad I kept my eyes and mind open, or I would have missed the best thing that ever happened to me.

Before the fangs come out: I'm a VP at Amazon. She's on television. So it isn't like we met at a bar in Mississippi.

My soulmates congregate in the 18-22 year old range.

From Legal to check for a pulse

I don't date any more so this question is irrelevant.

by Anonymousreply 1603/13/2013

I'm 49 and usually date people that are 5 years younger and about 3 years older.

by Anonymousreply 1703/13/2013

I'm 43.

38-48 5 yrs up and down, that's pretty much it. I can't imagine anyone over 30 dating someone in their 20's.

Life is just so different in those 10 small years. As you get older, not so much.

by Anonymousreply 1803/13/2013

I'm 50. Since I was 30 I date usually 5yrs younger to 10 older, but it's never been an absolute cut off.

by Anonymousreply 1903/13/2013


by Anonymousreply 2003/13/2013

I am 53. No one under 40. Absolute rule. No upper limit but somewhere, probably, in the 60's. Most men in that age range seem OLD to me, although I am sure getting there!

by Anonymousreply 2103/13/2013


I'm 52. But I'd entertain all offers...

by Anonymousreply 2203/13/2013

43. will date 43-46.

by Anonymousreply 2303/13/2013

48, will date ANYONE.

by Anonymousreply 2403/13/2013

As a rule, I divide my age by 2 - and then that's what I aim for.

by Anonymousreply 2503/13/2013

38, I'll date 18-55.

by Anonymousreply 2603/14/2013

I'm 35 and I usually date guys in the range 40-65.

by Anonymousreply 2703/14/2013

41 and will date guys 38 to 52ish. I also don't see the allure of dating much younger guys. If I were to met a guy in his early fifties who primarily dated women in their twenties...I would think he had issues.

by Anonymousreply 2803/14/2013


But is she on television in Mississippi?

by Anonymousreply 2903/14/2013

At 48, my range is 40-ish and up. I learned a very valuable lesson when, at 38, I was charmed by a dude in his 70's one evening, and it was some of the best sex I've ever had. Did that man teach me a thing or two! But I'm not ready to be a teacher just yet, so I don't even think about the young'uns... If I'm that lucky.

R13 is "dating" Robin Roberts.

by Anonymousreply 3103/14/2013

I'm 42 and I'd say 35 to 55.

by Anonymousreply 3203/15/2013

48 here, and young guys throw themselves at me regularly. How can I say no?

But then sometimes it's nice being with a grown man, too.


by Anonymousreply 3303/15/2013

I cast a wide net. I'll date anyone of any age as long as they're legal and we have chemistry. I hate the thought of potentially missing out on some great guy because he didn't fit into an arbitrary number range.

by Anonymousreply 3403/15/2013

I'm 30 and I now insist that everyone I date be within 5 years of my age. No exceptions. After years of dating people an average of 10 (or more) years older than myself, I've realized that big age differences DO affect things.

by Anonymousreply 3503/15/2013

Hell, I try not to speak to anyone under 40. The generations prior to theirs are entitled, spoiled, and stupid. Oh -- and arrogant.

by Anonymousreply 3603/15/2013

18 to 70

by Anonymousreply 3703/15/2013

Living, breathing.

Prerequisites: financial stability, transportation, and phone.

by Anonymousreply 3803/15/2013

Probably 18 to 35. I'm 21.

by Anonymousreply 3903/15/2013

It's ridiculous to have an age range. Instead you should have characteristics you seek out.

When I was in the dating game I never cared - I dated older and younger and sometimes way younger and way older. I never even thought about their age. Sometimes their age mattered but that didn't seem to happen with intelligent and thoughtful people. Those whose age made a difference were usually "off" in other ways as well.

You'd think the gay community would be beyond this kind of narrow thinking. It's not as if the gay dating pool is endless and as large as the straight dating pool.

by Anonymousreply 4003/15/2013

I'm 46. I like to stay open minded so I say 28 - 52.

by Anonymousreply 4103/15/2013

I'm 60, and . . . um, what was your question? Oh yeah, dating. I like guys around my age, with the same cultural references. I'll date someone maybe 10 years younger, and 10 years older.

by Anonymousreply 4203/15/2013

I don't understand OP. How is someone 36 to 100 not older?

by Anonymousreply 4303/15/2013

Um never mind. I read "can" as "can't"

I'm way over forty, so I basically cruise the emergency rooms and ICU. You'd be surprised how intense these short term relationships can be. There's no arguing about who's a top or bottom, it's just a glorious fuck for life followed by immense gratitude and some CPR.

by Anonymousreply 4603/15/2013

I'm 31 years old. I have been with my partner for four years - he just turned 51.

I tend to only be attracted to men who are 45+

by Anonymousreply 4703/15/2013

I'm 62 but told I look 30 so I don't really care for older guys, so 18-25.

by Anonymousreply 4803/15/2013

I'm 32 and am generally attracted to women who are also in their 30s because we tend to be in the same stages of life professionally and socially but I wouldn't rule anyone out because of age if they're considerate, nice, and sensible.

by Anonymousreply 4903/15/2013

I'm 36, would date 35-55

by Anonymousreply 5003/15/2013

29 year old. I prefer 45-65.
