I always wonder about someone who is nearly 30 who can find much in common with someone who is under 20. She (in this case) just doesn't have the life experience yet. That doesn't mean she isn't a wonderful person, but she hasn't lived any part of an adult life yet. And "what's your favorite song" only goes so far.

I had to chuckle about this. Earlier this year, my dear step-bro who is nearing 60, started dating a woman who was in her early 30's. His argument for not dating women closer to his age was that they always "came with baggage" and that this woman was completely free of baggage.

I raised an eyebrow at him and said "Right. She doesn't have baggage because hasn't lived enough to pack more than an overnight bag yet!"

The romantic relationship didn't work out, apparently, he had more than enough baggage for them both. But to be fair, they have managed to remain friends.
