So with dating, courting and the like,what's your age range? How much younger or older guy or girl would you go out with?

    Happily married now but in my single days - 30 years! :shock:

    15 either way. +15 in my early 20's, -15 in my mid 30's.

    Gawd, I was a censored .

    And loved every minute :P
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    Lowest would be 19 years younger (18), upper would depend on wear and tear!

    I was asked out by a 50 year old when I was about 19 or 20 but declined after finding out she'd tried to top herself after her previous toyboy dumped her :shock:

    10 years either side of 34, no younger or older. Younger women just seem too obsessed with clothing (not all, just the ones I dated). I want to settle down now and a young scrumpet wouldn't really be the type.

    Interestingly the guy who runs the local newsagent said he could get me a nice Indian woman if I wanted, which was quite the odd offer...
  • Probably wouldn't go out with anyone younger, in fact always went out with people a year or two older than me! Starting Uni again made me realise the difference in the level of maturity i guess. Although the people there were shocked so find I was actually 3 years older than them, they thought I was 18, so I can't be that mature myself!

    Older, I don't know. Maybe 15 years?

    I tend to go out with older women, currently dating a 30 year old (i'm 24) but I'd go down to 18 given half a chance, I'd go older as well. Certainly prefer the old birds though, they tend to know what they want.

    between 10% and 30% puls or minus of your own age but on a sliding scale with 10% at the bottom and 30% at the top or something like that why aren't I using any puncuation hope that helps must take tablets

    My bf is 13 years older than me. Nearly all my previous bfs have been atleast 1 year older than me. I tried to date a guy younger than me once but it just felt wrong I don't know why.

  • Under 30s get boring quickly; maybe haven't done anything interesting or unusual with their lives.

    It's a bit like that cats thread -- the personalities are more developed with the older ones.
  • The official rule is age/2 + 7. So, for me that would make the minimum target age 27 and the maximum .... 66. Oh.

    I'm 36. I reckon up to 45 and down to 28. Of course, i am married. I am also p!ssed.
    better delete that bit eh?
  • whyamiherewhyamihere Posts: 7,242
    Youngest would be 18. Oldest? Probably about 25. I'm 21, so 3 years younger or 4 years older.

    I always go for the legal ones. :P

    Joke aside, I find myself going for ladies in the 20s bracket.

    I don't think I'd enjoy someone older than myself though. I'm 28.

    I prefer someone who is within my generation or younger so we can more or less understand each other.

    I thought there was a formula, but where have you got the 66 from?

    Half your age plus 7 for the youngest allowable

    1 and a half your age minus 7 for the oldest allowable.

    Thems the rules!

    That'll be by reversing the formula for the old granny he wants to ask out. If you can't go lower than half your age +7, that also applies to whoever you're going out with. So the oldest person you can go out with is x years old, where your age, y, is (x/2)+7.

    y=(x/2)+7
    y-7=x/2
    2y-14=x

    Therefore, either (66/2)+7 or (2*27)-14 gives you the same answer that Steppen's 40.

    Err, no, it was a younger girl I was interested in :D

    But using the formula, we're not in each other's range :(

    Maybe just go for a MILF instead, from reading the posts on this thread, they do seem to be the way to go...

    Married, so not an issue, but............



    not worried about age, just their ability to fund my cycling!
  • Age is just a number and is only significant if it bothers you. I'm 27. My current partner is 42. The person I want to be with is 47. Let's just leave it at that

    I apologise - not having a great time with anything at the moment and I'm just sounding off.

    (I stand by what I said though. Age is totally irrelevant)

    No need to apologise, hope you turn things round :D

    I'd hoped this thread would be a bit of fun, don't think age matters at all...
