Hello everyone! ;) :D Hope that you're having a nice day!

I am a 20 year old college student and I am currently dating a 26 year old guy. He is smart, sweet, lovable and exciting. I dont know what are the opinions of other people regarding dating older men. I prefer dating older guys because I like their sense of maturity and independence, and having work is definitely a turn on for me. It just signifies that their lives has been planned out and it has direction. My question is, are there people out here also prefer dating older guys? Do you find it normal dating a guy with 6 years age gap? What are the reasons why you prefer older guys?

It's not bad to date an older guy. Before I got married, I dated who's a guy who's 7 years older than me. It was the ideal age for me because I always believe then that older guys can handle a relationship very well. He was a good deal but in the long run, I got annoyed since he was too childish at his age. We didn't work out for long. I prefer a guy who's mature enough to handle a relationship regardless of the age gap.

It's always your preference as to whom you are comfortable and happy to date with. Age never matters. Age is just a number. Don't hesitate. It's always how and what you feel for the person that count.

Well the age gap isn't really an issue for me. I mean if you both love each other then age doesn't really matter. As long as you're happy with him as he is with you then I don't really see anything wrong with that.

I think for me it would depend on the age gap. My husband is only 6 months younger than me - but he acts much more mature than I do, to be honest! I don't think though that I'd be able to handle much more than a 5 year age gap personally...that's just for me, though. I know people with age gaps in their relationships that seem to manage that just fine - it doesn't affect them at all. Each to their own, I guess!

A 6 month age gap is nothing!  In fact mine is 10 years.  However, though, an age gap more than 10 years could be a problem and 20 years could be dilemma!

This could be a dilemma and maybe illegal if a partner is under 18.  But anyway, I think to some extent those laws are silly.  For instance, if a 25-year-old wants to date a 16-year-old, then what's the big deal?

I like to date someone older than me too. I really like a guy who is mature. The gap between you is not that bad though. Some even have 20 years gap. I also believe that age doesn't matter in love as long as what you have together is something serious and real.

Like what other people said that I agreed too. Age doesn't matter when it comes to love. I prefer a old guys than me since they are more matured and they have since responsibility and ofcourse they are more serious when it comes to relationship when they reach the age of marrying. You are lucky to found a guy like him.

Age doesn't matter when it comes to love. And 6 years age gap is not that old.Actually its a good match, one matured in a relationship is good and works smoothly.

I use to be really biased to relationships where there was a significant age gap like ten years or more. However I as I have grown older and had more and more relationships and seen these relationships I have realized that age is nothing but a number. Yes this saying is true. This age gaps I have found works well when the man is older. Legend has it that men take longer to grow up so they are suited to younger women. I've also met women that are very mature for their age.Life teaches us lessons at diffrent ages so you can't judge maturity level with age. I see nothing wrong with age gap.

for me I dont have a problem with 6years gap, it's actually the suit to a girl if thier partner is 5-6 years younger, because base on my experience my second bf is 6 years or 7years younger. I was just 19 that time and he is 27 of age, at first It's kinda not a problem, I feel so much lucky because he is so much handsome,  from reputed family, and good educational background, he is a perfect man with 5'11" but after 1year of relationship he change, I cant even touch my phone because he is checking every messages, I cant go with my friends because they're  bad influence and I cant to to my boy friends because they're not good to me. so that's it after he changed he seems like more childish more than me so i decided to broke up with him cause he is manipulating me and I hate that, I wanted him to trust me, things that he never did.

My husband is 8 years older than me. This is not to brag but I don't think I would have been happier if I had married a younger man. I find an older man very understanding that we didn't have issues with compatibility. That means my marital life is stress-free. When dating an older guy, my advice is for you to be natural. That way, you will see if the guy will have the patience of understanding you all the time. It is natural to be a little bratty when the girl is much younger than the guy.

A 6 year age gap is not too bad in fact age gaps shouldn't matter at all. As long as you both are bringing out the best in each other.

Yes it's normal. Yes , a lot of people are in a much higher age-gapped relationship. Yes, love knows no age parameters. The only advise I can give, is that learn to stop minding other people's opinions if some people find it wrong or some people talk crap behind your back. Learn to stop caring about what other people say. It's your story, not them. It's all about you. As long as you're both happy, go for it! Good luck!

It's really not a problem. If he takes care of you and accepts you for who you are, then go for it. Most of my friends likes to date older men because they are responsible, has a job, and matured in their thinking. The age doesn't matter as long as you love him and he loves you.
