Age and dating

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.Admittedly, I prefer older guys, only because they tend to be fully fused, like a human skull.This kind of culling is even easier now that dating sites let us whittle our options down to the year.I contend that as long as nobody is being willfully creepy (I see you, guys in Ferrari hats), this kind of limitation is mega lame.

Forget about other people, money, and the looming specter of death. If we start writing people off based on this completely arbitrary Z-factor, we’re really going to end up forcing a lot of conversation with a lot of boring, age-appropriate dullards.

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 for the relative elasticity of their genitals.

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.

Given the opportunity, your friends and strangers will judge you for being out with somebody who is too fat, too thin, to short, too Asian, too a stripper, whatever.
