Do Asian guys only date girls younger than themselves in real life? Is age a very critical consideration? It seems that families would be concerned about girls’ ages as they worry about her fertility

Don’t think this has anything to do with being Asian so much as men in general preferring the same age, plus or minus, or younger. Of course there’s always men who prefer older women but that’s the minority

Hence “plus or minus” the same age. Majority fall in that category. Those who prefer women that are markedly older are the minority

I don’t think generalization based on race is necessary. A lot of non-Asian men only want younger women too. And I can’t speak for all Asians but I think at least Chinese families are usually ok when the woman is a few years older than the guy. (If the age difference is too big that may not be the case) There’s even a saying in Chinese that illustrates how they actually think this is a good thing: https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E5%A5%B3%E5%A4%A7%E4%B8%89%E6%8A%B1%E9%87%91%E7%A0%96

There’s two sides to this coin. Many people who are more modern would probably say guys dating way younger is predatory whereas women dating way younger is empowering (though of course there’s a post-modern belief that that’s predatory as well). At the end of the day, you do you

I can’t speak for the entirety of Asia. But as a Korean-American and being raised in the US since I was 6. Age doesn’t really matter to me, the older I get.. I’ve actually realized older women will appear very attractive to me when I know in my late teens and early 20s, I would automatically see them as 아줌마s. Also, age means a bit more back in the home country. But here, we take parts of our culture we like and kindly disregard the areas that seem a bit off putting. And I don’t really care about having children. Need to secure the bag first..

OMG D1 date me

My wife is older than me (less than 2 years). Being with/dating someone older has always been more enjoyable for me. They have more perspective, and their maturity is just sexy to me. And just for clarity - in the relationship, not looking for someone to take care of me (thought that would be cool earlier), but I just find myself attracted to older women.

Whatever, socio-economical issues in asian countries are making the concept of families unviable. I date whoever I want, but I get freak on with older girls. Age is very important for childbearing, so if you are going to have children, do so early, but first get your money right.

There is a saying, “When you are marrying your partner, you are marrying your partner’s family too.”

Tried dating an older woman thinking I would be "taken care of" but couldn't shake the feeling of wanting to "take care of" her
