When I visit another person's dating profile, I'd like to see a visual indicator that communicates something about a person's age so I can determine whether they might be a good match for me--without displaying precise age. The goal is to minimize the use of age as a factor for selection, without minimizing it entirely. What's the right mechanic and the best visual indicator to accomplish this goal?
Options we've considered:
- Fuzzy it up: Joe is 30ish.
- Relative to you: Joe is a bit younger than you.
- Compliance to a range: Joe is within your dating range.
- Math required: Joe graduated in high school when Tears for Fears was a hit.
What is the best way to do this?
