Ditto, though recently I've adopted the alternate approach of just sleeping less. I think the only long-term solution is to find someone who wants to do similar things anyway.

I've often thought that it would make sense to start out dating people with more experience when you're young and switch over to younger people when you're older. But that goes against various cultural and social factors; OTOH it seems to have worked well for a couple of friends. Certainly I have much more trouble getting along with most people of my age than with those who are significantly older or younger.
