Ladies - would you date, marry a man 10 years YOUNGER than you? 15 years? What is YOUR limit? Do you think it is all just a number and if the chemistry is right than age doesn't mater? Or do you believe it is essential to stay within an age range despite chemistry or love.
Marry...no way. Date...no. Mess around with...possibly, but no more than 12 years older than me at this point.

I only date women that are younger than me...2-4 years younger.

Don't have one. I've dated women as much as 30 years younger than me to women 40 years older.....FWIW, the woman who was 40 yrs older was more fun than the teenager...........

I am 12 years older than my husband. We have been together almost 23 years. I take very good care of myself, and I encourage him to go out in the sun a lot! We were both always somewhat eccentric, non traditional people. He was a very mature 21 year old, I was a very hot, fun 33 year old! Love ensued.

My ex was 12 years older than me...we were married for 16 yrs...He is now married to someone who
is half his age...I did date a younger man who was 8 years younger but that didn't work...another time I dated a man 5 years older, which was also a mistake...
I am currently renting a house with a man who is 11 years older...once this one is gone there will be no more of any age...I constantly remind him he can be replaced with a bassett hound...
can't seem to find the right one and I'm getting too old to start looking again...

interesting. Reading all these responses from women who like older men I now understand why twentysomethings flirt with me quite often and I am 43. Now if I could only figure out how to cross the line and ask them out. I have missed out on some great women because of this inability.

I'm a guy and my limit would probably be about 5-6 years older, and I'm in my 30s.

I married someone 7 years older than myself. We've been together for 30 years. Celebrated our 29th this past Dec 2011. He's retired now and I'm eligible in a couple more years. Crossing fingers, that we can soon enjoy our "free" time together. I wish it were tomorrow as I joke and say, "see, maybe you should have married someone your own age - then you'd both be retired at the same time". Something to think about anyways.

That would be 42 for me -- so yes, I would go up to 45 any older then that is out of my jurisdiction.
