It's an age thing
His point is that people his age aren’t attracted to him, even though he has a lot of things going for him. He says they are looking for someone older and wiser (and probably wealthier) to date. While S has no problem with the fact they can choose who they want to date, he does have a problem with others purposely ignoring a section of the population simply because of a number.
I know what he’s talking about because I’ve been there.
For some reason, I tend to attract those who are a bit younger, or a bit older than me. Why?
Here are a few assumptions...
The younger ones see me as a more stable version of the less mature ilk of their age group. Because I don’t look like an old man, they feel like they get the best of both worlds: sorta smart, and sorta cute.
The older ones see me as a piece of ass who has level head on his shoulders and can carry off an intelligent conversation. Also, they don’t mind showing me around to their friends, like an anatomically-correct doll.
That leaves the ones my age; the ones who couldn’t give a crap about me. They take a pass because they’re busy whoring around, looking for the next hook up, while complaining (at least, to me) about how they can never find anyone because they’re such a catch and anyone would be lucky to have them.
Then again, I'm just assuming - no one wants me, no matter what their age.
