I'm not sure I should reveal my preferences here. When I was younger, I preferred men who were right around my age. When I was, say, 24, I wouldn't have wanted to date a 30 year old man. I married a man who was 3 years older than I was. (and he left me in 1994) My daughter has dated men 6-7 years older then her but is now dating a man her age. She is 26.

Now that I'm older in years but still very young at heart, I would prefer to date a younger man. But I wouldn't rule out a man my age or older. It all depends. I am no longer going to have more children. My kids are all raised and independent. I am looking for someone to enjoy life with now, as in vacations, adventures, exploring the world, buying and shooting guns. You know, all the things it is difficult to do when you are raising kids and time and money is tight.

So, I guess what I am saying is my tastes and needs have changed as the years and life's situations have changed, too.

Strange question for a gun forum but I'll bite. My wife is 3 years older than me. Personally I find the thought of sexual attraction to a girl who could be my daughter (say 16 years younger than me?) to be repulsive. On the other hand I do appreciate the attractiveness of a young girl. Sort of a dichotomy. Years ago a friend of mine said "You know, one of the things that I have noticed about high school girls these days is that the older I get the younger they are."

Generally girls your age are looking for maturity, if you have that you can bed all of the hot chicks you could possibly meet in a bar one night. But of course a mature young gentleman just wouldn't do that. There's that dichotomy thing again.

A 20-something girl who would accept a "sugar daddy" of 40, 50, 60 or so for money and gifts would do whatever it takes. She's not interested in you (or me for that matter and I am in the "repulsive" age bracket to 20-something girls).

One thing is that you can't fake maturity. You either have it or you don't. I know old farts who have no maturity. They do get laid though.

Just my opinion. I'm sure some of the other women might feel differently.
Well there is no "motives" with me and my wife. I am 30 and she has 20 on me. We have been happily married for 7.5 years

Well, while over the 60 mark, and have been married 3 days longer than dirt, I will note that there is no accounting for taste. I have been hit on (unsucessfully) by more than a couple of young women that are in their 20's.

Yes, good looking young women, but realistically- for just a minute- you do not spend your life in the sack. What the hell would I have to TALK to a 25 year old about? Ask if she was in the same class with my oldest grandson?

I'm 27. Most people say I look about 47. I've been hit on by a girl who couldn't be a day over 14, and a woman who couldn't be a day younger than 60. Within 5 minutes of each other.

I'm not attractive, but at last I have my hair. I do also have a pot belly though.

C3 is right, there's no accounting for taste.

Isn't that what the Internet is for? Intellectual stimulation!

Oh yeah, I guess some people get some other stimulation on the internet. Whatever.

As the years go by, I'm not so sure about that.
