    Age difference when dating?

    What's the largest age difference between you and the person that you have been with, or are currently with?

    When she hits 36, trade her in for two 18-year-olds.

    Magic rule is half your age plus seven years.

    The largest difference I've dated is nine years my junior, and in the other direction six years my senior.

    I'm 41, he's 32. No big deal now, but he was 22 when this whole thing started.

    Biggest difference in years was about 8 younger. That one failed the famous half age + seven test and wasn't really a good idea.

    My current girlfriend is 1 year younger.

    That doesn't really work for BOTH people involved. You'll keep doing math until you both stop existing.

    It also doesn't work too well until you're 21, too. Unless you like legal troubles.

    Ehhh, the oldest guy I dated was 23 years older. T'was the cliche middle aged guy (but he looked 30! I swear!) with barely out of teens girl relationship. Wasn't so bad--after all, it lasted 7-ish months.

    Teh bf, the current and hopefully forever and ever SO, is six months younger.

    No matter what age you are you can still get an eighteen year old Ukranian mail-order bride with all her shots for fairly cheap.

    Ex boyfriend was 11 yrs younger. We went out for probably 6 years-were informally engaged, were great friends before becoming a couple and it didn't work out. Broke up, didn't talk to him for a year and then we started talking again and are back to being good friends - which is preferable.

    I seem to mostly go out with younger guys.

    5 years, but it really depends on what the ages are. When one is 16, it's bad. When one is 26, not so much.

    Depends on if she is MILF material or not. Actually, I prefer not to get involved if she has a kid.

    I have always dated within a year or two of my own age. It isn't about the number directly, but rather it has to do with where people are in their lives, and age generally does reflect this (except my dad who dates 20 year olds because he is in a place of his life where 20 year olds usually are, so it works for him).

    The youngest date I had was when I was 26 and she was 22. I felt like I was on a date with a child and I couldn't take it: she was just out of college, never lived on her own, her family made all of her choices for her. I, on the other hand, had owned a house, was married before, had car payments, two established careers, etc.

    The oldest date I ever had was 3 years older than I was. Perhaps to her I was the child.

    My wife is a year and two months younger than I am. We are equals. It's perfect.

    when I was 19, I dated a 29 year old. Didn't work. When I was31, I dated a 21 year old. Didn't work ( although the results were much better) I wouldn't go younger than 5 years now, but now that i'm 33, as long as we were on the same page, I would might still go 10 over my own age, but that would be pushing it. Case in point. My physical therapist is ten years older than me, but she looks younger than me, and is the most awesome person.....but she's married. If she wasn't? game on!
