Will you date someone significantly older/younger than you (difference of 20, 30+ years)?

I totally would. I’m in my 20s and would date a man in their 40s. I love older men 😍😍😍

23 gay cis-man. I would (older, obviously) despite getting tons of parental flack for a 9-year gap in the past. I think it’s tough though; both folks need to be confident in themselves and know what they want.

I mean, if you’re with someone your age, would you not appreciate them more as they get older? That window of being a handsome older guy isn’t very long, and being much younger and having to take care of your partner and possibly being alone in middle age could be tough.

I'm 38 and have been dating a 53-year-old for the past six months. It's not at all what I imagined for myself but when I met him the age didn't even register - just the fact that I was intensely attracted to/interested in him. I do think about the age difference sometimes, but for now I'm just seeing where this goes.

I’m in my late 40s. I dated a 27yo guy last year. Our relationship in the vacuum was surprisingly great. But the challenges occurred when socializing with his friends. I always felt they were somewhat disapproving and/or judgmental. My friends were just jealous. Lol.

funny

This is honestly 100% not a question to be asking how others feel. Personally, i wouldn’t but I have friends who are my age (late 20’s) and very happily married to someone 20 years older and there is no judgment. Do whatever makes you happy, bud :)

Being in my 20s, probably not just because I don’t know how much I would have in common with a 40 year old right now to sustain a relationship. But in my 30s I think I would reconsider older.

like

I don't think I would. People change so much over the years that it seems unlikely that two people would remain compatible through that large of an age (and presumably maturity) gap. I'm not saying I wouldn't hook up with an older guy, I just wouldn't see it as having long-term potential.

like

Dating someone 17 years older than me in his 40s. It can be a bit of an adjustment in terms of talking about your relationship to friends/family, but once you get past the first little bit you’ll never think about it. I enjoy dating someone who’s more serious about the relationship, knows what they’re doing in life, less unknowns/personality changes with age etc.

I say go for it, but just be understanding that there are hurdles you will have to discuss/cross that come from being at different stages of life (kids, jobs, living situation, etc).

For context, I am nearly 30 and exclusively attracted to older men.
I have a loving family and a caring set of friends. All people (friends and family) I have come out to have been very understanding despite not knowing what the word "gay" means. But I feel it would be bit of a stretch telling them I'm attracted to someone in 60s. Also, I don't want my parents, who I care about most in the world, to be unhappy.

So I figured I'll just wait being in a relationship until I'm in 50s and casually date guys until then. It leaves having a kid(s) out of the equation.

Can’t you date a 40 something with grey hair instead of waiting 20 years for that same person to be in your target range?

Yes!! I'm 22 and, for me, any age above 18 is just a number really. I'm pan & demi so it's the person's mind and personality that drives me crazy 🥴. If we connect in that wat, we connect! The age doesn't matter as much to me.
