Dear Poll: Would you Rather Date Older or Younger?

NBC's new show, Age of Love, raises a great question, does age matter? While it is hard not to get caught up in the little things, someone's age really matters to certain people whereas genuine connection is more important to others.

Hollywood has been crossing the age barrier for years, but what I want to know is, do you prefer to date someone younger, older, or your own age?

Most definately i prefer any guy i date to be older than me... i've had crushes on guys 10+ my age, there is something definately sexy and forbidden about an older man :O)

I Prefer Dating Men My Own Age Or 1 Or 2 Years Older Than Me!

Personally, since Megan Fox is trying too hard to be the next Angelina Jolie, she should ditch Brian Austin Green and hook up with a guy who's trying too hard to be the next Brad Pitt.

Younger. However, the youngest age a guy has to be for me to be dating him is 17, however I feel more at ease if he's 18. My great uncle was married to a woman for 30 years, and they were 18 years apart; she was 18 years older than he is.

Not too much older keep in mind! My boy is four years older. It is a lot different because I am in highschool and he is college.. but anyway. I'm ok with dating younger guys if they seem a bit more mature for their age. I still love an older man though!

All men are babies, all men have issues... it's just finding one (love has no age) that treats you well and has the qualities in a man that you desire.

My thing is I like men that are between the age of 33-38. I always have. Once upon a time they were older than me... now they are the same age group as me. I suspect when I am 50 I will still love a man in his mid 30's. haha! They have matured a bit... and normally have calmed down enough to be date-able. Nothing is as worse as a twenty-something male hunting for tail. Ugh! And dating mid-40 yr olds tend to come with extreme baggage... like a couple of ex-wifes with kids scatter everywhere.

i'm pretty young so dating a younger man could be illegal in most states. But i have always had an attraction to older men. I predict i will marry a much older man. I guess to fill the void of an absent father figure.

i've dated both older (2-8 yrs older) and younger (4-5 years younger) men and can't say that the higher the age necessarily equates to more maturity. i ended up marrying a wonderful man who's my age and we have a beautiful son together. ultimately it was personality and our compatibility that has worked for us. age for me is really just a number.

Generally, older = more mature. However, I just want to be with someone with the same or more maturity as me. I don't want a big boy to be the father of my kids, nor do I want a "dad" to always look after me as if I'm his daughter.

I am most concerned with that certain connection, however I tend to date older men. Not too much older, but 5 years is the oldest I have gone. I find older men more attractive because they carry themselves with so much confidence and ease. They also have more to talk about in terms of life and general table talk. (at least the ones i've dated)

Older. Young ones are first of all, younger then I am, and secondly not in tune with me.

I voted for older. :) I've been with my boyfriend for 2 years now (he will be 24 in November and I just turned 19 in February) and I've come to realize that even though we have our rough times...he's still managed to teach me a lot of things about life. I think he is very mature but then again everyone has their immature times. (including me)He's taught me to be strong, how to deal with certain situations, and he showed me how to grow up and be mature. Now there are some younger guys out there that can be mature but it just seems like older guys have had more time to expierence maturity and responsibility. :)

My husband is 5 yrs older than I am and sometimes I still feel like the more mature, so I think it's that whole as old as you feel, some men have old souls and others never outgrew their pre-teens
