And on the other hand, unless you’re going out with somebody she’s young, I don’t think it’s cause for judgment.Being predatory is just plain gross on either side of the equation, either from young people looking to trade sex for free Hulu Plus, or old people suffering conversation with somebody who I don’t have to tell you that the only people who get to decide whether you’re enjoying each other as people are you and your dinner companion.Go out with people because you want to be naked with them and still hang out with them after.Sure, a lot of compatibility is being at the same place in your life and liking the same things.But I realize that I’m a young(ish) woman, and biology is a factor, sure.We still live in an age where men get to age like credenzas, and women like unrefrigerated dairy.
Women who feel otherwise are the reason we get paid 89 cents to their dollar.
If you dismiss people because of their personalities or because you’re on some kind of baby-making timetable, fine, fair enough.
But if you’re not into someone because of the arbitrary time in which their parents created them—well, more tasty imperfect flesh for the rest of us.
The only problem I’ve had with dating outside of my age range is when the other person has been too aware of it.
Either he was self-conscious about dating a younger lady, or he tried to pay for everything because he thought I expected it.
