Thirty something dating a tweenty something

(My Uber driver refused to let me out of the car until my date was in sight because apparently downtown is full of potential rapists eagerly awaiting naive Portland girls whose Uber drivers are less protective than mine.)My "date" was short and stocky, details that had not been apparent from his photos. He brought me to La Costeña, a bar on Main Street with loud salsa music. Some time later, I got a text from another guy I encountered on Tinder, a wildly attractive 23-year-old.

He spoke loudly and condescendingly to the bartender, who didn't speak English very well, and then decided we would switch locations, moving us to a nearby, rather inconspicuous bar, where he made inappropriate jokes with guys selling marijuana candies. And yet he seemed completely taken with me, texting and calling, over and over. Sometimes I would run into him and his equally attractive friends at art shows; his greetings were always cursory. After a few months of friendship, we ran into each other at a party in Koreatown and slipped into a period of romantic bliss.

Do we simply go for the young twentysomething because she can give us children? Buss says some have argued that men are attracted to young women because they are easier to control.

However, the fact that younger men, including teenagers, are also attracted to women in their mid-twenties debunks such a theory, as the attraction is rarely reciprocated, which makes the women and their sexual preferences fundamentally uncontrollable.

While we didn’t work out romantically, there was a reason I had a connection with each of them. The story of how I met her probably represents one of the greatest assists by a wingman in the history of modern dating: I was having a beer with my friend John at a French spot after work one night. Jessie and I asked some of our exes to write a handwritten note about the relationship we experienced with them.
