Hey! I just noticed that in your mentor request you asked why gender matters—it doesn't matter a lot, we just want to make sure people are paired with someone they're comfortable with, same reason as age. Pairing an adult male with a teen girl may make the girl uncomfortable, so we do our best to avoid things like that.
Sorry to butt in, but I was also wondering that, and it does make sense that some teen girls might feel uncomfortable to be paired with an adult male. I'm assuming it went the same way for age (I think I would feel a bit strange being paired with a 30-year-old)?
