Do you find people significantly older or younger than yourself attractive?

    This has been one of the big surprises of getting older for me -- I find that as I have aged, my sexual attraction to people of the opposite sex has aged as well. What I mean by this is: In my teens, I was attracted to other teens and maybe some women in their early twenties; in my twenties, it was women my age or slightly older; in my thirties, late-twenties to early forties were attractive; and, now in my forties, I find women in their late thrties to early fifties to be appealing.

    So, it seems that I've kept something of a constant buffer of + or - 7 years or so as regards to being sexually attracted to another person.

    The way things are going, I can understand completely how people are able to maintain sexual interest in their partners after many years of marriage. Ten years later, I find my wife even more attractive than I did at the beginning of our relationship.

    What about you? If you're older (40+), has your experience been similar to mine? If you're younger, can you imagine the day when you'll find a 45-year-old more attractive than a twenty year old? (And, believe me, that day *will* come!)

    Ahhhhhhhh... The elusive GILF! So few found in the wild anymore. I was starting to think they were an endangered species until I saw an episode of John from Cincinnati on HBO. On that show, Rosanna Arquette plays a grandmother. That's right, a *grandmother*.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...

    Grandma Rosanna!

    I'm pretty much attracted to women a couple years younger than me, in the 25-27 range.

    My wife and I have been together for nearly 25 years and she is definitely more attractive than when we first started dating - and she was really nice looking to start. She's 43 now and absolutely beautiful.

    Yes, I have noticed recently that I find "older" women much more attractive. A 20 year old bimbo with a killer body will still give me a whiplash when I snap my head to check her out, but it seems a) that I've learned the difference between hot and beautiful and b) at least in my case, beautiful counts a lot more than hot.

    Except in rare cases, "hot" is temporary. On the other hand, real beauty lasts and lasts and lasts and ....

    I'm much more attracted to older women. Early-mid thirties for me, even though that's almost double my age.

    Blythe Danner, Helen Mirren, and Emmylou Harris are all substantially older than I, and I find them very sexy and attractive.

    Scarlet Johansen and Jessica Biel, OTOH, are substantially younger than I am. And they're hot, too.

    I find that as I get older I find women my age or approx. (38) more attractive... I think your attraction focus's less on the outside appearance and more on the mind and the experience... when I look at young girls I just view them as novices in life and that doesn't appeal to me...

    haven't u learned from the hot for teacher thread?
     
  16. I am 18.

    Granted, there are certain legal limits as to how much younger of a woman I date, but on the other end of the spectrum I find women attractive even into their 30's.
     
  17. Eh. Someone around my age is fine.
     
  18. a hot chick is a hot chick is a hot chick. the attitude and maturity level with definately be different with age so maybe that could be what draws your attention more and more.

    Actually, I'm talking about physical attractiveness here. For reasons I can't explain, as I have gotten older I find that Patricia Heaton or Jami Gertz is more appealing than any of the Jessica Simpsons or Jessica Albas of the world.

    Don't get me wrong -- Jessica Alba is an absolutely gorgeous girl. But, to my eyes, she's just that -- a girl, not a woman.

    Now, I'm guessing if you're under forty you think I'm nuts, but if you're over forty, you at least understand what I'm saying, even if you think I'm nuts. But, I'd take Megyn Price over Paris Hilton any day of the week!

    I'm not quite that old yet (24) but find that once I hit 22, my age-range had expanded greatly! It went from 18-23ish to 18-40ish - not really sure why but just something about them older ladies LOL. Won't turn down a young'n though ;)
