If I'm attracted enough to want to see her, I don't really care how old she is. My first provider was a few months short of 19, and I was 59. I have seen providers that are almost 50 as well. Yes, intelligence is important, but my primary reason for going to see a provider is not conversation. It does help if she can carry on a sensible conversation, but it's not the highest priority when I am with her. I have taken one of my faves out to eat several times, she is about 30 years younger than I am, never noticed a second glance when we went into the restaurant.
