[ +56 / -28] I think I started to like older men as I got older haha I know younger men are comfortable to be around but.. they are just dongseng to me. When younger guys pretend to be dependable men.. It is kind of a turn off.. When they act cute and want us to adore them, it is a turn off as well. T_T I just wanna be a noona to them

[ +50 / -5] Age difference of 1 or 2 is okay haha But over that is kind of a turn off

[ +45 / -28] I don’t like younger men that much

[ +28 / -5] Of course we like younger guys haha Do you think we like old men? hahahahaahah Women like younger men too like guys do

[ +24 / 1-] I honestly like younger guys… There are many types that annoy you by constantly calling you noonah, there are guys who really are like oppas… I think it is all about face and personality.

[ +24 / -12] Not that many like it. Only single women who are really older love them.

[ +18 / 0] It just depends on the person
