    I keep noticing that I am mostly attracted to guys who are a bit older than me (late teens - early 20's). I'm a 16 year old gay guy.
    Is this a bad thing? I just hope that it won't hold me back in the dating world.

    As long as they're not a lot older it's fine and pretty normal.

    ha thats nothing, since the age of 17 I've always noticed men in their 40s. They're just more attractive at that age (if they look after themselves that is)

    Glad that it doesn't seem abnormal. I personally prefer someone who is a bit more advanced in life than I am, but never someone who is significantly older (e.g. born in the 1980's).
    I do want a boyfriend, but my age preference will probably make things harder for me.

    It will not at all. Older men ALWAYS go for younger women. Trust me you'll have no problem at all.

    No, sometimes a girl just wants someone who isn't childish and annoying
    but it does depend how old

    Quite normal, girls are typically more mature than guys their age so they subconsciously seek someone a bit older to match their maturity.

    Important information like this should go in the OP so people don't have to read through your entire thread, something which most people don't do
