Ever wonder who your soulmate is? The key may be looking 4 years and 4 months away from your birthday — older if you’re a woman and younger if you’re a man.

According to a survey, the perfect age gap for partners is four years and four months, but only if the man is the elder of the two.

A study of 2,000 adults showed that just one percent of women believed the “ideal relationship” was with a younger man.

Men also preferred being older, with only two percent wanting a cougar.

The majority said they preferred an age gap, with forty percent saying three to four years was ideal, while thirty percent preferred five to six years.


“Age gap relationships are becoming more and more common because of the greater acceptance of the diversity of couples and families,” said counselor and relationship expert Julia Cole.

“Couples can make loving relationships across ages and genders, but age gap relationships can bring with them issues that are not often considered when the couple first start seeing each other.

“If the age gap is fairly wide – more than ten years – and the relationship grows into a commitment, it is important to talk about attitudes to money, expectations of family life and what parents, siblings and friends will think about an older partner in their life as well as yours.”
