Age is just a number

27 Feb

I am 44.  #4 is 38.  That’s a 6 year age difference.  Really, he’s probably too old for me anyway.  I’ve always had a preference for younger men.  At my age thinking about dating someone who is in his 50’s makes me feel yucky.  Feels too old for me.

Over the weekend a friend of mine told me I should date much younger because I had a young spirit, and so I had to find a man who had one too.  He thought that 27 would be good for me.  First of all, I love him.  He’s great.  High five.  He’s like a great older brother who I never had.  Second, if the dude is 27 I’m technically old enough to be his mom, that feels a little yucky.

I have not embraced my inner Cougar.  I should.  Thanks to my friend who reminded me that the Cougar rule is 1/2 your age + 7.  That means my limit is 29.

Date #7 (Civil Servant) is lined up for Saturday.  He’s 32.  #4 is a fling.  Casual.  We are free to see whomever we want.  If a 32 year old has a hot body and wants to mess around, who am I to say no?

Online dating is fun.  You should do it.

    Go you! I guess this means #6 is out of the running?

    Btw, I can date #7 too as my ‘age’ is 32. Since I’m a giver though, you can do him. Er, have him 🙂

      That is so kind of you. Thank you for letting me have my own date.

    Stupid password posts won’t let me comment from my phone. TOTALLY JEALOUS of last night’s shenanigans!

      It was stupid fun. So fucking fun. I’m so glad he came over.

      Damn it, I wish I had your self control

      Epic fail on some of the self control.

    • Grey Goose, Dirty at 3:15 pm #

      No, an epic fail is what I did with NYE date. You did good. And had fun! And aren’t all weirdly in your head today. I call that a WIN!!!

      Shockingly, I’m not weirdly in my head. I feel like if I never heard from him again, I’d totally be okay with it. I will though, it’ll happen again.

      Well now you’re just rubbing it in 😉 Such a good headspace to be in! Awesome!
