I play darts every tuesday night except in the summer time, we have a great time and are laways meeting new people. I cannot get over all the young little hotties that come out to play, so trust me, you will not go un-noticed. You really wonthaveto do anything, the guys will all be willing to help teach you how to play the game properly. Lots of flirting goes on while we practice.
As for young guys being immature, from what I see that would be true, however that immature sword cuts both ways. Alot of older guys do look at younger girls but alot of us have our reservations towards them for the same reason as you currently feel about younger guys.
Im sure you carry yourself differently and you will probably do great with a guy that is mature.
Give one of those activites a shot, again you meet new people young and old and you have a fun evening all at the same time.

I'd say 10 years older or 32. There are many places to get together. Yahoo groups about anything you are interested in. Dating sights. Church. Shopping, walking in the park or swimming.

Don't hesitate to say hello to a man you see out in public (the coffee shop, library, wherever you visit quite often, you sometimes see a lot of the same people), just check for a ring first. Not that many of them would care they're married.

For fun I like to see local live music and hang out amongst the local art scene. I avoid malls, arcades, and movie theaters during the day like the plague. Happy hour at a bar and grill is a good place to meet professional people, but be careful with timing. As the night goes by it turns into the party crowd with lots of assholes hitting on you just because you're a girl in a bar. I don't think that's what you're going for. Barnes and Noble might be a good place for you to meet people. Maybe if you like outdoorsy type guys, go to the local parks. There's usually cafes in the area you could mingle with people. Fitness classes are a good place to meet people as well. I've met lots of professional people at the gym. You can tell who is who just by watching a person for a few minutes.
I think to get the type of guy or girl that you want, you have to be in their environment. At the moment I'm having difficulty finding someone worthwhile myself. Using the apple tree analogy the best apples are always the ones on top hardest to reach.

I was going to say something similar. Going to a pool hall is definitely a place to find older men. I know in my circle you can find pool or dart leagues Monday - Thursday. The men and women vary in age from early 20's to over 60.
There are also bars that have special activities going on from time to time such as live trivia, tournaments, and even singing contests.
You could also go to a gym, and of course there is always the self proclaimed novelist/writer hanging out at the local coffee shop or anywhere with free wifi.

27 sounds like a good place to start. I'm 24 and they're still pretty hit or miss at 24/25

The only thing that I would add is this: No games. With older guys... I don't want to make it sound like we're no fun (lol), but the flirty games that are often played in high school and the first year or two of college are just annoying.
The point being, you've gotta let the guy know that you're interested. For most of us, we just don't look at women that much younger because... well, because we don't think you'll be interested! (in addition to the reasons mentioned by Faster, and others, above) Be prepared though, because if you do let an older guy know that you want a date or whatever, you're sure to actually get interest. Don't just say that you're interested to "test the waters".
