A lot of people say age is just a number. While this is true, it’s important to remember that it’s a very important number. Regardless if you’re trying to attract someone younger or older, you should always portray your current age.
A lot of people turn to online dating to find someone of a different age range. It’s hard to meet people in your day-to-day life who on a different age spectrum than you are because you your daily social circles tend to revolve around a majority of people who are the same age as you. The Internet is a great place to find people of other ages who are looking to date someone in your age rage.
If you want to attract someone younger than you, you should keep in mind that a lot of younger people online are looking to date someone older than themselves. If you start acting younger, then you’re going to turn off that younger demographic who is looking for a more mature partner.
Not only that, but when you’re trying to look younger, you usually end up looking like an old guy that’s trying to look younger. I’m sure you know what I mean by that. How many times have you seen someone in an outfit and have thought to yourself, “They’re much too young to be wearing that.”? I’m sure it’s happened once or twice. If you start acting younger than you’re age, it’s going to be you that people are thinking that about. It seems that instead of enjoying what you’re doing now, you’re simply trying to re-live your youth, which is a big turn off for most people.
Even people who are trying to attract someone older than them are better off acting their true age. If you try and act older, not only will you have to keep up that act which will be untruthful and tiring, but you’ll be attracting to someone to a personality who isn’t truly you.
The dating world is hard enough on its own, don’t make it harder by trying to be something you’re not! Act your own age and you’ll have much more success online.
Younger- looks like you’re trying to re-live your youth, can be a turn off, end up in relationship you’re not comfortable with. Old- putting on an act, will attract someone to you without your own personality
