    anything over 16 years is too big, cause then I figure you could pretty much be my dad. (obviously I know you can be younger than 16 and be a parent but thats my line)
    my ex was 15 years older, but I would never date younger..I don't really like dating guys my own age

    Totally agree with you! All is good as long as there not old enough to be my dad!
    I wouldn't date younger either...I haven't had a boyfriend my own age since i was 16 - they've all been at least 3 years older!

    Maybe about 1 year younger, but I do try to avoid dating younger guys, and probably 8ish years older.
    The youngest guy I've dated is about 5 months younger than me, and the oldest is about a year and 5 months older than me.

    I wouldn't mind going out with a 16 year old being 24.Be pretty cool actually, no wrinkles or celulite.A friend of mine refuses to date anyone under 18 though, because "it makes you a peadophile" (even a 17 year old Beyonce)
    He's a strange fellow.

    No, I came into existence when the first life, in the form of bacteria was formed. I am death. Where there is life there must be death.

    Questions like this are so arbitrary because the answers change. Today you might say you are only going to date someone upto 5 years older and then you meet someone who is 8 years older that you really get along with and all of a sudden your preference has shifted to 8 years older.

    Your current preference only accounts for your past experiences, not your future ones.
