Too old for dating

Like, "This Cuban-Chinese restaurant is half-Latino, just like the late Emilio Estevez." Or, "I just put a dollar’s worth of O-Town songs in the jukebox.

Who knew this bar would have a dollar’s worth of O-Town songs?

I know many smoking-hot middle-aged people who are emotional teenagers.

I know many brilliant, mature people who aren’t old enough to rent a car.

A lot of us have found ourselves attracted to somebody younger or older, and have been reluctant to act on it because of some perceived weirdness or taboo.

Some of us limit our potential partners to a very specific age range because that’s what we think we’ll be attracted to.

It’s too bad O-Town was hit by a bus."He was the only "younger guy" I’d ever gone out with, by about six years, and I used to ask my friends obsessively if it was "weird." But they just thought it was strange that all of our conversations could start a potential death rumor about Ray Liotta. Ultimately, it wasn’t that this guy was young; it was that I had absolutely nothing to say to him that wasn’t "There," "Not there," "NOT there, this isn’t anybody’s birthday," or "Slow down, Usain Bolt, who incidentally is ." It wasn’t about age—it was about somebody with a nice body I had absolutely nothing to say to.

I’ve discussed dating out of your demographic with men and women alike, and while everybody has a lot to say on the subject of age, I’m of the opinion that it is, indeed, nothing but a number.You know generally what you’re going to get from someone by a certain age, because they’ve fully committed to their personalities.The idea that young people like older people because of the financial security is irritating.But if you’re not into someone because of the arbitrary time in which their parents created them—well, more tasty imperfect flesh for the rest of us.Admittedly, I prefer older guys, only because they tend to be fully fused, like a human skull.Either he was self-conscious about dating a younger lady, or he tried to pay for everything because he thought I expected it.
