I have very little experience when it comes to dating... and when I say "little," I mean "none." It's embarrassing at my age, but there's no hiding from my inexperience.
One thing that I frequently worry about in regards to approaching women in public settings, just starting a conversation even, is that I have difficulty telling how old people are at a glance. What are some general guidelines to tell the difference between, say, a twenty-year-old and a twenty-six-year-old? The former is too young; I'd think four years younger to four years older than me would be an appropriate age range (I'm 27). Or am I overthinking this? Any help would be appreciated, I worry about this a lot.

Honestly it's a hard thing to answer because thanks to makeup, a girl could honestly be 15 and she could look 21. There's really no line, anymore.
I guess the only thing I can recommend is to maybe just look for more "maturity" in the face. By this I mean a slightly more "structured" look, cheekbones, jawline, that sort of thing. Really it's hard to put into words.
Though in your shoes I would personally make it easier on myself and go for a girl that's close to 30, cause I think when a girl hit's 28 she does start to abandon that "youthful" look to her face. It's not really like with men where we can look youthful even in our 30's, women usually have a shorter timespan for that sort of thing.
Every woman is gonna look different, but I guess "something" that looks more like this woman. Youthful, but not baby-faced. Again though, very hard to put into words.0
