Not that I'm complaining, mind you...

Over the past year, I've notice that I've been approached almost exclusively by noticeably younger guys. What's up with that?

Female, 27, bi, cisgender here. For maybe the past 10-12 months, any time I'm approached/flirted with/asked out by a guy, it seems that the man in question is in the 17-22 age bracket. This has never really happened before - normally there's a decent amount of variety in the ages of guys who show an interest in me, if anything, leaning older. I don't know what the reason may be or whether it's not just a series of random occurrences. Have I unconsciously crossed some sort of magical "older woman" rubicon, taking me off the radar of the older dudes and making me somehow more interesting to these younger folks? They are generally attractive and confident, so I am absolutely not dissing this new trend in my life - just trying to understand it. There have been no major changes in my appearance, style or social environment - so what reasons could there be?
