No thanks, but is your son single?
On the internet, women may lie about their weight, but men lie about their age. I find this interesting. Doesn't it seem like women care much less about a man's age than men care about a woman's weight?
I once met a man after “knowing” him online for about six months. He had told me he was 48…which was a little old for me and I told him so. He sent me a picture and he seemed fairly attractive, so I thought perhaps age might not be as much of an issue as I feared.
When I met him I discovered he was actually 60. SIXTY!! Did he think I wouldn’t notice?? If age was a concern to me when he was 48, how did he think it would be okie-dokie when he’s 60?
“But I don’t feel like I’m 60,” he said. “I feel like a young person. I don’t want to be around people my age, I prefer to be around young people.”
Well that doesn’t mean young people prefer to be around you, especially when you lie about it.
Besides, maybe he feels like a 30-year-old man now, but what about twenty years from now when I’m 55 and looking to tear across the country on the back of a Harley to visit my grandchildren…he’s 80! Even if he still feels like a spring chicken inside, he’s not going to be able to keep up!
Shallow as it may be, age makes a difference in how comfortable you can feel with a person, no matter how young that person thinks they are on the inside.
What about younger men? While they might be fun for a fling, the younger men just simply don’t know enough yet to be useful in a relationship. The younger a man is, the more like his mother I feel, and another child I do not need. So I leave the young studs to the Mrs. Robinsons of the world and look to the men with a number of years on this earth similar to mine.
Strangely enough, though, being with an older woman as a younger man is good for a man. The best lovers learned their art in the arms of a woman old enough to be uninhibited and wise enough to expect no more from them than sexual gratification.
I don’t think this is true for younger women with older men. I don’t think old men have much if anything to teach a woman sexually. Her sexual arts are learned from a sincere exploration of herself and from a genuine love of the act. If a woman loves sex, she will learn to do it well. And a woman’s love affair with sex begins in her mid thirties.
