Dating age disparity girl older
" except for aging pageant queens and John Mellencamp. I know this because I once worked with a 42-year-old man who was skipping his daughter’s birthday because "she’ll have one every year, but you never know when they’re going to shut down Burning Man for good."True, another factor is judgment from other people, who may see a 44-year-old going to dinner with a 25-year-old and make judgments about which one of them is drowning in student loan debt.
If only I could tell them how many broke, destitute middle-aged guys I’ve slept with, and challenge their ugly stereotypes.
Admittedly, I prefer older guys, only because they tend to be fully fused, like a human skull.
You know generally what you’re going to get from someone by a certain age, because they’ve fully committed to their personalities.
The only problem I’ve had with dating outside of my age range is when the other person has been too aware of it.
Either he was self-conscious about dating a younger lady, or he tried to pay for everything because he thought I expected it.
Besides, age has nothing to do with lifespan, and we could all get hit by a bus tomorrow, like those poor boys from O-Town. That is the opposite of what picking a person should be like.
When you completely remove personality and individual experience from the equation and rely exclusively on stuff like "young," "blue eyes," and "no glasses," you end up with Robert, that weirdo in the beret.
I contend that as long as nobody is being willfully creepy (I see you, guys in Ferrari hats), this kind of limitation is mega lame.Forget about other people, money, and the looming specter of death. If we start writing people off based on this completely arbitrary Z-factor, we’re really going to end up forcing a lot of conversation with a lot of boring, age-appropriate dullards.I think that if you meet somebody you like and are attracted to, you meet somebody you like and are attracted to.From a sexual attraction standpoint, I challenge you to stand me shirtless next to Sophia Loren in Look, Steely Dan probably couldn’t talk at all to "Hey Nineteen" because they admittedly had "nothing in common." Not because she was too young to name an Aretha Franklin song (which, like, come ON, Steely Dan); the idea that people are what pop culture references they know reduces falling in love to trading trivia. A lot of women have told me they won’t date younger men because of maturity issues, and that’s probably where the idea of a prohibitive "age gap" comes into play for a lot of people.
