Young people are incredibly age-prejudiced, to such an extent that age is one of the most important filter criteria used to find a match on online dating sites. Age is the second-most important attribute used to help users determine if they’re interested in a potential match (after the photo).

And always being the lone single person when your married friends want to catch up for dinner starts to become a little tiresome.
