I just turned 28. Most my friends are 3-5 years younger than me because I'm a first year dental student in a new city. I don't look any older then them though and basically fit right in. I just got out of a long relationship, so I'm trying to meet some new women. I'm not really trying to do the one night stand things anymore, otherwise I would care less about this. So we went out last weekend and it was my birthday. Naturally everyone asked me how old I was, and I started to feel a bit odd about my age. It has also dawned on me that I will turn 30 while still a student here. I'm also suddenly aware of how young the undergrads are that mostly frequent these places. It sort of seems like this is my dating pool though, because I'm simply not around professional women, and I'm not sure they'd even be interested in dating a full-time student. So, since I basically have to date younger I'm wondering what's appropriate. How much younger do you guys date? Maybe 22? I realize this is not the worst situation to be in.
