I wouldn't want to date someone who looks older than me. I've been single for most of my life, so unfortunately tend to still look at women that are young as if I'm still young myself.

age isn't really an issue unless they're too young.

@Lee J Haywood: So you're not single anymore? Married?

Um, nope - still single.

I wouldn't date someone much older than me, less than 10 years is my age range for dating.

@Lee J Haywood: Then you have been married, you said "I've been single for most of my life"

@Lee J Haywood: Or you mean not single as having a girlfriend?

No, I meant that I've been in a relationship at some point. You're not generally considered single when you have a girlfriend, are you?

@Lee J Haywood: I was trying to understand the term. So single means having a partner, and not unmarried. I suppose bachelor means not married then?

A bachelor is a man who has never been married.

Fine. So a widower can be single again, but no more a bachelor. Now I get it. We don't have that separation in my language.

My older guy rule runs thusly: if you couldn't have fathered me, you're fair game.

Most definitely.

20+ years would actually be fine. I really wouldn't care if there was real attraction involved.

I would date an older man. I like scarlet's older guy rule.

they would have to have the same mind set as me. I would not agree to see someone too old, that is in a completely different part of their life than i am in. would be too weird.

Agreed. Age really doesn't matter as long as you're sincerely in love. Though I think with too much of an age gap it would become uncomfortable.

When you think about it, there's a lot of filtering going on when you look at potential partners. Age is just one thing, but there are literally dozens of others - the more you know about someone, the less likely you are to like them.
