How much older or younger would you go in your search for a spouse? Some CatholicMatch members shared their preferences.
“10 years both ways…”
“Never younger, same age, or 10-13 years older.”
“I used to think 2 years younger and up to 5or 6 older, but I’m starting to find that this might be limiting myself a lot!”
“20 up or down.”
“If I need to shave more than you? Too young.
If I have to put you to bed? Too old.”
“Basically I tend to go 10 years either way but really prefer closer age than that.”
“I have gone as much as 7 years younger. Have never dated anybody older though. I think dating someone any more than about 3 years older would be a little uncomfortable for me.”
“In a search I go up or 54-64. [Donna is 59.] Considering that most men want a woman younger than them, I don’t hold out much hope for a man any younger than me. But I still look at their profiles. It makes me a little nervous though when many of the men who browse me are 70-80. My dad is 83…Even I have my limits.”
“I would go for a guy 5 years younger or 5 to 8 years older. Too young, they are into activities too wild and risky for me. Heck, I don’t even Twitter. More than 10 years older than me, they are set in their own ways and don’t want to stay out and have fun. Anyone wanting to go to bed by 7 pm is too old for me or takes 10 to 20 pills for medical issues. I have to set limits to make sure we have things in common to do together and that we can keep up with each other.”
“I usually go with 5 years younger to 10 years older.”
“10 years, but the reality is that 45- to 60-year-old men like to contact 30-something women.”
