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.
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.
I know many smoking-hot middle-aged people who are emotional teenagers.
I know many brilliant, mature people who aren’t old enough to rent a car.
The idea that young people like older people because of the financial security is irritating.
One, because people who give a fuck about money are awful, and because I’ve met plenty of old, old dudes who are still doing the Somerset Maugham-y cheerful hobo routine. I like the Civil War, documentaries, and talking about whiskey as though it were a zaftig prostitute, so old guys and I get along.
You know generally what you’re going to get from someone by a certain age, because they’ve fully committed to their personalities.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.I think that if you meet somebody you like and are attracted to, you meet somebody you like and are attracted to.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.It is up to you to be mutually happy with the person you date.
