Learn that from QI by any chance?
Nope; I really should watch QI, but I never know whether to believe Stephen Fry.

For girls I'd probably never go with anyone over a year younger until the age of about 26... and as for older, well im 20, my boyfriend is 31, he could still be a it older and I'd still feel comfortable... I think so long as they don't change into an old man too much before you turn into an old woman haha...

At 20 I wouldnt really want anyone younger than say 25... but then that's just me

In my opinon women mature faster than men, and also sadly age faster... So for me its the older guy all the way

Any reason you ask OP?

I'm 24

I'd go as low as 21, and as high as erm...I dunno....37 maybe. That could be pushing it slightly - 35 perhaps - depends how much I liked the guy lol.

My husband is 31.

I've been thinking about this lately as there are alot of young girls where I work, I think the average age is about 17/18. I'm almost 22 and to be honest, I don't think I could see myself going with somebody that young, I think we're at different stages in our lives and some of them come across as being a bit immature still. I would probably go out with a girl who is about 19 at the youngest and say 25/6 at the oldest? I am attracted to women who are alot older than that but I would never have a relationship with them, would be too weird.

Depends on age, if your 18 or over, 16 is the youngest. I think the oldest I'd go at the moment would be 21 or 22, with my age being 19. I think at older ages the gap gets less important.

When I was 12 I dated a 15 year old (who is now gay and a part time cross-dresser)
When I was 15 I went out with a 22 year old
When I was 16 I went out with a 19 year old and then a 21 year old
When I was 17 I went out with a 28 year old.

When I was 15 I went out with a 13 year old for a few days too.

My boyfriend now is 23 (i'm 19) four years is quite nice. I have to say the 28 year old was a bit odd to be with especially when we were in bars playing 80's music and he knew all the words....

Although I do firmly believe that it's not about age it's about maturity.


Edit: I've also had casual on off relationships with people who were in their late 20's early 30's and this random interlude between the ages of 16 & 17 with a junkie I-want-to-be-pete-doherty- musician guy who was 23/24.

lol, i was surprised too, but she was really mature and didn't act (or look) her age

the funniest bit was when i gave her my copy of much ado about nothing, i finished with it at AS and she was doing it for her sats...that was strange

i'm surprised noones negged me yet, it wasn't a very socially acceptable thing to do (i bet they will after this :p:)

girls are usually more mature then guys anyway

Ah, that's a shame. Why couldn't you cope?

I had a few relationships with "older" people (up to an age gap of around six years) in the past, but when I was 16 I started seeing a guy two years younger than me, and we're still together now (I'm 22 and he is 20). Admittedly, in terms of maturity he's miles ahead of all the other 20-year-olds I know, but nonetheless I'm pretty glad I never shot myself in the foot by purposefully avoiding people younger than me.

I also have a couple of good friends who have a 25-year age-gap in their relationship, which has further taught me not to turn my nose up at big age-gaps; they work for some people.

I think if one/both of the couple are in their teens, a bit more caution is needed in terms of age-gaps, but once you're over 20 (perhaps even over 18) I don't see a problem with having relationships with people who are much older, as long as you're both happy.

Why are you anonymous?

I'm 18, I'd date a hot 50 year old (there aren't many though).

Perfect age would be early 30s.

Yes I'm a bit weird.

I think OP was anonymous at the start, but "came out" (pardon the expression) midway through the thread in response to a question from Paperclip.

I'm 16 and while nothing's going to happen anytime soon, I wouldn't go for anyone younger. I find that guys are just too immature. In terms of age difference...probably 2 years either side (but only if he was mature :rolleyes:). At least we're at the same stage, it's not like one's leaving uni while the other one's starting...

That's very vanilla of you!

With me, age is only problem if they don't have the stamina, if they're completely grey or if they're out of shape

I'd go maybe a year younger in exceptional circumstances.

Meh, I'm pretty boring. Look at my profile, I still haven't filled anything in. :dontknow:

I don't see people who go for older men as freaks or anything stupid like that, I just think that age is more important when you're younger. It's more to do with being at the same stage than anything else. There was a kid when I was in Year 9 who was going out with a Year 6 (his best friend's sister ) - I know that was underage, but it's more of a taboo than for people in their 40s.

My rule for age on younger girls:
x / 2 + 7

x = your own age.

e.g. You're 18

18 / 2 = 9

9 + 7 = 16

Youngest you can go for is 16!

My rule for age on older girls:
Same as above, but 'x' in this case is their age.

She's 24

24 / 2 = 12

12 + 7 = 19

No-go for an 18 year old.

With odd numbers you divide as standard and then round up.

Ha.
