But meeting a woman who actually wants to keep that lighthearted, carefree aspect of a relationship alive is really sexy." "I have one rule: Never ask for age — unless she looks way too young to be at the bar. But overall, I think that girls find it really tacky and tasteless when a guy wants to know their age, like it matters in the heat of the moment because ...
In a lot of ways, it makes the mystery of love all the more elusive: Does it really know no bounds? Looking back on it — would I have changed my mind about bringing her home if I knew her age? I wouldn't have held back on asking her to marry me just because she'll be 40 before I'm 35.
There's probably never been a time in your adult life where a potential partner has turned you away because you're too young — or too old.

Age doesn't triumph over fun."I met this girl in a bar my senior year of college, and the next morning she made mention of the fact that she had orientation and had to head back to campus.
A lot of guys get a bad rap for being developmentally and emotionally delayed because girls are usually more mature for their age.
And I'd have been damned to let her walk away just because more than a decade separated us.
In fact, being further apart in age gave us more in common.""I've dated girls that were both older and younger than I was — but none more than 5 years younger or older than me.
We got along great, but in my circle of friends, I could tell that they didn't approve of the younger girls because they were 'needy' and 'attention-seeking.' With the older girls, it was a mix of intimidation and feeling responsible to be polite.
We just got each other; there's no other way to explain it.
But the space that we struggled with was understanding and absorbing each other physically.
