If you do a web search of 'age appropriate dating' there are various algorithms designed to help you figure out how to navigate this tricky subject. What's 'appropriate' may not always be what someone is attracted to. The question is though, does it matter? Why not just date who you're attracted to regardless of age (or other variables).
Listener Elena called in because she's facing this exact problem. She's just signed up for online dating and isn't sure which age range to put for her preferences or herself since she's attracted to younger men and looks/feels younger than she is.
Have you ever been through this? How would you advise someone in this situation?
