    Just in response to a comment in the "perfect man" thread im wondering how much of an issue age is to you?

    whats your age and what would be too old?

    im a "mature student" this september and i will be 24 by the time uni starts.

    Im classic tall, dark and handsome and hang around with friends ranging from 19-27 so I dont feel any different to when i was 20/21 years old. I dont want to lie about my age as i think that would be pretty stupid and pointless but how important is age?

    I have always been out with younger girls (no younger than 18 FYI ) and it doesnt bother me that they are younger except the odd occasion when their immaturity shows.

    just interested to see

    EDIT: Ladies and not ladys. i blame it on lack of sleep and tough day at work!

    It depends on the girl I guess... Though I would reckon most girls would see it as a bonus that you're 24, if you're on the hunt for 18 year old freshers.

    haha! i agree ^
    and no I always prefer older guys... I think most people have a line they draw but it gets alot larger when you turn 18. All my friends pre turning 18 would have said 20was max.. but now it seems to vary from 21 up!

    But If a Girl was 18, would you go for a 17yo in exceptional circumstances

    I'm 27 and I prefer younger guys (which is convenient as a mature student!). When I was 18-20 age mattered less actually, I'd go out with guys ranging from a bit younger than me up to 30 or so. You'll be fine!

    yum yum for older guys.. if you're tall dark and handsome, i'm sure you'll be an instant hit regardless of your age..

    and there'll be other mature students there i'd imagine.

    I see the thinking. older = less of a party animal but IMO the "kids" are gonna have a job keeping up with me lmao. im one of few of my mates who still trying going out 24/7

    Thats a tough one because I have been with younger girls that look alot older so would depend on the 17 year old. I decided to put a min of 19/20 if a relationship. based purely on past experiences.

    I find confidence a massive benefit to being slightly older. going there at 18 i would have been alot more shy where as now i will talk to anyone and everyone when im out.

    well its looking pretty positive. didnt think it would be much of an issue

    and top poster ive been told a josh harnett kind of look although some people cant see it a few girls have said that in the past (random i know!). I think its just the eyes though really


    p.s god i love those gossip girls (ex used to watch it) although my fav was the blonde sister to that other guy. dont remember any names lol

    I'm 19 and for me 24 would probably be a bit too much. It's hard to say though, really does depend on the guy.

    I think if we were friends first and something developed your age wouldn't put me off, but I'd be less likely to go for you on a night out. But as you can see from other people on this thread, some disagree. I think you'll be fine as long as you just act normal, if that makes sense.
