age can be a factor about relating. with women i usually like to talk with older girls. with tgirls i’m not sure as there are none here! i have met a few tgirls passing through but that doesn’t count. i have some dear female friends who are younger. but i really don’t relate socially with them.
as for men, it doesn’t matter. i don’t date them anymore and they are not what i want. so i just stay away. there is a barista i like but he is really just working.
going out? ha! i once had a younger girl friend who would try to get me to go out to bars. so embarrassing! and i don’t like booze. or smoking.
i find coffee houses are much nicer places to meet people. i have enjoyed them. and our library can be good as we are allowed to talk there. people in my neighborhood are nice. but its only passing greetings mostly.
