Perpetual Teenagers

It seems to me that the internet has enabled everybody to find companions to share the same interests, hobbies, world views, sexual fetishes, whatever, no matter how niche, you can now join the fanclub and get the t-shirt. That, along with not having to really ACT your age any longer, unless you really want to burden yourself with old people crap, like kids or jobs, kindof homogenozes the average internet user and how conversations with them will go.

For instance, sometimes i have trouble telling if I'm talking to a 30 y/o or a 16 y/o. The 30 y/o doesn't have to be married with 3 kids like a generation ago, doesn't have to become mature with all the soul crushing responsibility of supporting your whole family and being practically sold to your job because of that. Nowadays, its more like :
Husband playing x-box in his pajama pants at 5 PM, as the wife comes home from work:
'I totally agree with LikesBewbs69 dude!! I fuckin' HATE my mom dude!!'
'Honey, you're 35. He's 14...?'

This is what i think 99% of the guys in the US are like:
Music? I kinda like a bit of everything?
TV? Comedies, MTV, Jackass type shoes, anime, adult swim or other cartoon..
Dress style? Casual, slacks or cargo pants with some tee, usually some snarky, a cartoon or geeky, sneakers
Future job plans? Programmer or game designer/tester or some other techy subcat
Girlfriend? Generally yes, generally faithful to her, generally cute girls with ripped jeans, streaks in their hair, funky hip clothes, listens to Sublime or similar
Age? 15 all the way to late 50's
