Why do some men and I seem to have a huge age gap?

Splatmate24 Community member Posts: 371 Courageous
I'm a woman with learning disabilities and I'm 24 years old. I've had some experience with some men but they're not looking for anything serious. It's difficult to meet guys my age but they're not interested in a long-term relationship. I also encounter the problem that men I meet in social events seem to have a huge age gap. Having a little age gap is fine with me, but I don't want a man twice my age. Men outside of my age range don't seem to attract me. Although I am fine with men in their 30s and 20s, it seems that I don't get anything out of either of these age groups. When I can't go younger, but can't go much older, what is my best option?

    I think you need to be patient and just keep looking. Maybe one day you will meet an older guy that you are very attracted to. Or someone your own age.
    Dating really isn't a process that can be rushed or forced.
