8 Reasons to Date a 23 Year-Old Man (regardless of your age)

I recently began seeing a much younger man. He is 23. He is also well bred, well educated, ambitious, intelligent, handsome and gentlemanly. Withstanding the protestations of some of my more traditional and conservative friends, I feel I am justified in my choice. One must not be an ageist, or be found guilty of discrimination against the very young. They too, have their merits beyond the obvious.
