Day 62

Mrs. Robinson

I’ve got this friend from work. He’s sweet, tall dark and handsome, attentive, and in to me. We get along well and hang out on occasion playing Pokémon Go. There’s a massive problem though... he’s 25 years younger than I am. If I were in my 60s or 70s it wouldn’t be a problem, but I’m in my 40s so it’s almost icky. We popped in to Trader Joe’s the other evening to grab some snacks and several people looked at him and then looked at me and make this really confused face. Like they were trying to decide if he was my son, but he looks absolutely nothing like me.

I’ve still got a close relationship with my Sports Fan IG friend who’s 15 years younger than me, though our fling cooled to an affectionate friendship before my musician came along and we’ve still never met face to face, though we’ve been at the same game once.

I keep finding these awesome guys who are way to young for me, while the men who are my age are immature and flighty or drunks or married and looking to feel desirable.

I should just get another dog and a really good vibrator.

    I'm wrestling with the idea of age being an issue, especially because it wouldn't be polite if the partner were a different race, religion, height, body type or gender. So why is age any different? Personally, I prefer date women of similar ages to myself, but if a young woman came along and we had a lot in common and we were both mutually agreeable, I wouldn't discriminate against her.....

    Age in and of itself isn’t really an issue for me, it’s place in life. I’m in a place where I’m thinking about my kids going off to college soon, and this guy is still in college. He’ll want to get married and have kids someday, I’m long divorced and the baby factory is closed.
    On the flip side, men who are older than me and single seem to be much older, more likely widowers than divorced, and looking for a nurse with a purse. I want to travel when and if I retire, not take care of an aged old man.
    Men my age of any quality all seem to be still married to their first wives.

    Oh, I'm not saying there's long term potential, but there could be fun times and good sex..... what's wrong with that, if you're both willing?

    Enjoy it while it lasts
    Age is just a number who cares what others think just go with the flow

    I get what you’re saying Rav... and The Coward and I have an understanding and he’s good for a distraction and a handful or orgasms on occasion (and doesn’t make me feel like a pedophile) but I want more than that.

    Yeah, sounds like you're going to need to fish in a bigger pond.
