I wanted to see if he was taking it as a challenge, so I went to his profile. He didn't have an age down, but his job decription is "legal advisor for a pharma company", and he has firm beliefs about relationships (Have fun parsing this: "In real love u want d other persons good, in romantic love u want d other person."), so I'm guessing he must at least be in his mid-twenties.
