There was a big dustup on the internet the other day. A 50-year-old French writer penned an essay about how he does not find women his age attractive and only dates younger women. The uproar was predictable. I grant you, an older guy writing about how he likes younger (and, presumably better looking) women is not exactly atom-splitting material, but having been single for some time now and read hundreds of dating profiles, women can be just as arbitrary - no one under six feet tall, no one over six feet tall, no one who owns cats, or does not own cats, or owns dogs, or does not own dogs, or has kids, or does not have kids, or wants kids or does not want kids, or is bald, or is not bald, or has blonde hair, or does not have blonde hair, and on and on and on. A lot of people think that stuff matters (I happen to think they are much less important when it comes to a successful match), so why are we dragging some pervy old man and not everyone else?
