The View host Whoopi Goldberg believes dating younger men can be “tiring”.

During a discussion about age gaps in relationships on the talk show, Whoopi opened up about her love life.

Her co-host, Sara Haines, asked her what her preference was between younger and older men.

Whoopi recalled the time she was with a younger man who didn't know much about the Beatles.

The comedian says when you decide to go for the younger men, you have to know that there's a lot of information you have to impart.

"And sometimes it's tiring. But then there's the other way where you're like, 'Yeah, you're younger, but you look good! Yeah, you're alright.' So you never know," the actor says.

The 65-year-old has been married three times. In 2016, when asked by The New York Times, if she has a higher bar than other people when it comes to love, she said, "No, I think I am not that interested. I am much happier on my own. I can spend as much time with somebody as I want to spend, but I am not looking to live with someone or be with someone forever. I don't want somebody in my house."
