I wouldn't date anyone younger than me at all let alone eight years.
chuck7882 · 56-60, M
Age is but a number. Love is love
SW User
[@701409,chuck7882] fair
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
SW User
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] don't blame you
Effloresce · 22-25, F
Nah. Although my bf is a bit older than me so I guess he would
SW User
[@563720,Effloresce] I wouldn't in my 20s either
JupiterDreams · 26-30
I would.
Synyster · 46-50, M
Yes, up to 10 years younger. However, I'm more attracted to women closer to my age.
Offthetop · 51-55, M
Half plus seven
Anonymouslyyours86 · 31-35, F
My aunties sister in law is married to someone eight years younger than her they two grown dentists now and still married
Anonymouslyyours86 · 31-35, F
Trust me she hesitated herself at the beginning but she cane around eventually when he kept insisting [@876164,Eve2019]
DDonde · 26-30, M
I would, but only because I'm 29. 21 doesn't sound that weird to me. I dunno.
It really depends on your starting age.
SW User
[@373024,DDonde] I agree
SW User
yep. under 30 would be too young for me...
SW User
[@613397,ThePatheticClown] 😂
Gaiia · F
xixgun · M
Doubt someone 8 years younger would fancy me
SW User
Most probably.

But..why would I want to date someone that OLD?
Mindful · 51-55, F
Been there. It’s up to the couple. There is no real formula for love other than what two people believe in and practice.

I don’t know what’s real or not but there are a lot more in happy people out there than there are happy.
If I liked them enough, sure. It doesn’t mean as much at my age. And I dated someone even younger recently.
bout half my age would be too young. although truth be told, I'd question the motives of anyone even vaguely interested. so there's that.
Maybe just for vigorous sex.

[@325434,jetpack] I just chokedon my salad.
BalmyNites · F
[@325434,jetpack] lol
beastmaster · 46-50, M
I think if someone is 10+ years younger or older than myself, then I wouldn't date, but be friends if they want to
Most 19 year old girls would just give me a headache so they'd have to be atypical for sure
SW User
[@776292,BeefySenpie] I feel that on a spiritual level.
SW User
BalmyNites · F
Yes, I go by the individual, not the birth certificate 😌
St0ut · 51-55, M
For me. 35. But there are exception. I need a girl I can talk to
SW User
[@749552,St0ut] same only guy
St0ut · 51-55, M
[@786692,Autonomous] I needed a day away from here. Lol. We match then huh
beastmaster · 46-50, M
I think that for men and women, society looks at you differently.
For eg, if a man in his 40's dates a 20 year old, he is a "sexual pervert" and etc.
The stigmata is different for a lady in her 40's who dates a 20 year old, she is a cougar 🧐
SW User
[@770397,beastmaster] pretty much
Pfuzylogic · M
Natural attractions exist but I wouldn’t go younger than 30.
puck61 · 56-60, M
I'm 57. I think it's okay to flirt with anyone 40 and up. If there is chemistry, I will thank my lucky stars and treat her like a queen!
SW User
[@3557,puck61] awe
puck61 · 56-60, M
[@786692,Autonomous] Well, being single at this age is kind of scary. It's like wondering if everything in the romance department is over for me, and I'm going to my little box alone.
indyjoe · 51-55, M
I dated and married someone 7 1/2 years younger than me (it's not 8 but close enough).
SW User
[@676121,indyjoe]❤️
Ambroseguy80 · 51-55, M
Never!

SW User
[@403045,Ambroseguy80] you clearly got a broken one.
Ambroseguy80 · 51-55, M
[@786692,Autonomous] clearly. Now where did I leave that receipt??? 😛
ninalanyon · 61-69, T
That would make them 55. Seems ok to me.
SW User
[@872096,ninalanyon] yeah. I think once we get older it doesn't seem like such a big age gap.
latinbutterfly · 41-45, F
33? Sure 🤷🏻‍♀️.
SW User
[@876949,mamabear41] yep. I draw the line at 30 though.
latinbutterfly · 41-45, F
[@786692,Autonomous] I think 10 years younger/older would be the min/max age gap for me if I was single.
peskyone · F
Nope.

2-3 years maybe.
Ambroseguy80 · 51-55, M
[@786692,Autonomous] if not a little limiting
SW User
[@403045,Ambroseguy80] hey. No picking on other people for their preference.
Ambroseguy80 · 51-55, M
[@786692,Autonomous] 😌
SW User
Hypothetically, why not.
puck61 · 56-60, M
At my age, 10 years younger is just fine. My girl friend is ten years younger than me, and people think 'she' is robbing the cradle. She'll be the first to admit she looks ten years older than me. Sometimes twenty or more. If I was twenty one, I would not consider dating someone ten years younger! 😆
puck61 · 56-60, M
[@786692,Autonomous] It hasn't happened often enough for me to use them. I get as much pleasure out of playing honey bee to her lilac, so there hasn't been that much of an issue. I might have to go to the well in a few years though. We just get in to each other, and every square inch is erogenous. It's a silent language we speak to each other and I feel very very lucky.
SW User
[@3557,puck61] that may have been the best description I have ever heard "honeybee to her lilac". You sound like a happy couple. I'm so pleased for you!
puck61 · 56-60, M
[@786692,Autonomous] Thank you. We are best friends. I met her picking wild grapes that grow around here called "Muscadines" and she is the only other person I have seen picking them besides me. Any friend of a Muscadine is a friend of mine! 😊
lovelywarpedlemon · 26-30, F
It would feel wrong. I don't think I could.
SW User
[@417823,lovelywarpedlemon] at 26 I totally get that. At 30, I don't think it's too bad if you can find things in common.
lovelywarpedlemon · 26-30, F
[@786692,Autonomous] Yeah an 18-year-old is still like a kid, to me... Doesn't matter how "mature" they are for their age. I can't even explain the amount of development I experienced, between then and now... However I wouldn't hesitate going 8 years older. I have done that already. Particular guy was a bad match, but I would try with someone else.
SW User
[@417823,lovelywarpedlemon] same. My last long term relationship was with someone 9 years older. I totally get you.
