Age is just a number in the city. While your friends back home will be settling down with your old high school classmates, you might date a 19-year-old and a 35-year-old at the same damn time. You'll be shocked when your friends back home talk about the pressure to settle down and start a family before they turn 30. Some of the coolest people you'll meet are single well into their 30s who you'd jump at the chance to sleep with...if they'd just get rid of that 22 year-old boyfriend.
