It's not a waste of time because you're going to learn a thing or two from this experience.
The truth of the matter is, not many people can tell you exactly what's going to happen, because we don't know you and we don't know the women you're soliciting.
We could say that most women prefer men their age or older due to matching levels of maturity and ambitions. There might even be empirical evidence supporting this claim. But that doesn't determine YOUR outcome, because there's always a chance and humans don't operate purely based on probability (although we try).
