Washington: Kim Kardashian, who is now dating rapper Kanye West, has said that one of the things that attracts her to him is the fact that he is older than her.

Oprah Winfrey asked the reality star questions about her controversial love life for her ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ episode featuring the Kardashian family.

“Before, all my boyfriends were younger. I always dated 5 years younger,” Us Magazine quoted her as telling the talk show host.

“Now I just love that I’m with someone that’s a couple years older than me,” she said.

After 72 days of marriage, Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, 27, on October 31, 2011 after an over-the-top televised wedding.

In March, Kardashian began dating West, 35, and she tells Winfrey that their age difference is a very good thing.

Kardashian said that she’s “totally growing up” after her divorce and surrounds herself with friends who are older and wiser.

“I feel like I’ve had an epiphany over the past year from what I’ve been through and I am that changed person just from my own experiences,” she said.
