Of course, there's a huge difference between dating people in their 20s vs.
their 30s, and men aren't the only ones guilty of tangling with younger mates for recreational reasons. 30-somethings are too tired for happy hour on Fridays. 30-something guys will make you feel better about your own body. 30-somethings will make your bed before they leave. 30-somethings order wine with dinner without looking at the menu.
The rejection was devastating until a bright light named Stephanie joined my high school as a freshman.
Stephanie was Karen’s younger sister and she was hot!
Yet, that 26-year-old with the tight abs still thinks you're hot.
So rather than mourn the fact that you're still unattached at 35, recognize what a beautiful opportunity this is to get the best of both worlds. 30-somethings get really excited about their new Tempur-Pedic pillows.
For men, sex means a lifetime of navigating age-specific perils, pitfalls and performance anxieties.
The playing field is narrower; if you want kids, the biological clock is ticking; and as you're older, you’re naturally carrying around a lot more baggage.
Let’s just say that older sister Karen wasn’t very happy with either of us. Maybe women think men are immature because even at 45, with our receding hair and ever expanding girth, we act like college dudes chasing tail even though we no longer have game.
Yes, men are immature, but only because women let us be immature. Since we were wee lads, girls have always discriminated against younger boys in school. As a result of our consistent rejections by “older” women, we don’t like dating older women.
In fact, Stephanie was even more beautiful than her older sister, and I just had to pursue.
For one semester, Stephanie and I had a frolicking good time.
