Last night I went to dinner with a friend. We had a very talkative twenty-four year old bartender named Donnie. He expressed that he has no age preference when it comes to dating women. His preferable dating age range is a 20 to 40 year old woman. My friend and I were surprised that a man of his age would entertain dating a much older woman, especially in our society were youth is coveted. Our bartender’s comments opened up a very interesting conversation about ageism and dating.
