to the OP: everyone's got their personal preference. for me, the problem starts if you start rallying and getting people on your side with a big placard (sp?) that says: DON'T DATE NON-READERS.
ps. i do like older men as well :P
EDIT: though, thinking about it now, my parents use the same excuse to prevent my sister and her boyfriend from getting married (because the guy is not Chinese).
i hope we're not turning into a sort of elitist group.
EDIT 3: deleted EDIT 2. thinking too much, lol.
