with that age difference I say go for it. Personally I'm 27 and don't think I would seriously date a 22 year old guy, but casually I would if I hadn't sworn off dating for the foreseeable future.

Well, if our FOUR HOUR phone conversation is any indicator we are very compatible. We were on the phone late, and I didn't get much sleep, but it was well worth it. Wonderful conversation about everything under the sun...

He seems like a great guy, and we are definitely meeting for dinner later this month!

Did I mention he's hot? Oh, and he thinks I'm hot too. Doesn't really matter, but doesn't hurt either.

I'm not in a place to date now, but if I was, 5 or 6 years younger would probably be my lower age limit. Since I'm also in my 30s, someone a lot younger than that often has a "kid" lifestyle still. The age range that seems acceptable will probably get wider as I get older and the younger guys get more mature.

Good luck with your hot guy, Jennifer!

If I found a guy 5 years younger than me that didn't piss me off with his immaturity and sexism, I'd totally date him. All other things being equal.

Good luck on your date!

Yes, yes.  I'm fabulous. loveeyes.gif  Moving on...

Heck yeah, I'd date a man 5 yrs younger. At my age, I'd even consider dating a man 10 yrs younger.
