WHY CAN'T WE BE COUGARS?
Men have been doing it for centuries...dating younger women. I mean, look at Hugh Hefner, Donald Trump, or that creepy actor that just married the 16 year old girl. Yeah, men in powerful positions and the guy next door have always had a fascination with the much younger woman. So is it ok for women to start robbing the cradle so to speak?
I'll admit, I have a much younger guy barking up my tree at the moment. When I say much younger, yes he has a drivers licence! And yes he's old enough to vote! However, he's still at least 10 years younger than me.
At first, I thought that this guy was crazy by trying to go after me. I even told him that he should not be talking to me. Still, the lil critter was persistent and kept wanting to hang out. He even made nice suggestions of things we could do. Needless to say, it was slightly refreshing to have a guy that actually wanted to make plans with me versus the guys I seem to meet which squeeze me in when they can and act as though I'm always an inconvenience.
I mean here's a guy that despite his age and lack of worldly experience is doing things to impress me and get my attention. Like I discussed in my "Are Men Lazy?" blog, guys haven't really tried with me since Mr. Dallas. And I'm not talking fancy dinners either. For instance, lil critter bought me some flowers when I wasn't feeling good. Then he went to the store to make me some soup when I was sick. He even took me recently on a picnic complete with cheese, crackers, wine, and a blanket. It's something so thoughtful. And you know what? He came up with the idea. And may I add, it's something that didn't cost a lot.
Granted, I know that he's a bit young and has a lot of living left to do and still so much to learn. However, is it wrong that I'm enjoying the attention? Is it bad that I'm enjoying the flattery if it all? LBS (let's be serious) here, who would'nt love the fact that some hot younger guy thinks you're sexy and thinks you're the shiz? I mean guys have been doing it for years with the arm candy.
I realize that a older woman and a younger guy is against popular thinking. Trust me, people at my work are already talking behind my back. I also know this won't last forever, but is it wrong to just enjoy it? Isn't it about time that an older woman starts letting the younger guy liven her up? If I were a guy, would we even be having this conversation? Probably not!
