Dating a man ten years older than you updating counter strike
We’re all human beings in a state of constant decay, yeah I get that and none of us are safe from medical problems. These “cougar” scenarios appear so often in Lifetime movies and bad erotica that I blame pop culture, not my inappropriateness, for noticing what a fine little tenderoni the young man was…until he started addressing me as “Ma’am,” and then eventually “Miss Thembi,” extinguishing all of my cougar dreams. He turned out to be the type of guy who mainly cared about drinking and hanging out with his raggedy friends, a group that was thinning by the year as it lost members to wives, careers…you know, actual adulthood. Although dating a “grown and sexy” man may seem appealing, I found that it just wasn’t for me.
“When you’re with a younger person, you have to think, ‘What’s going to happen in five years? No matter what your age, to go forward in life with an eye toward becoming a kinder, more loving person sounds like an infinitely wiser approach to keeping love alive than worrying over the inevitable appearance of laugh lines.
We called it the “Grown Men in 2010” challenge, and endeavored to meet as many men at least ten years older than us, but not old enough to be our fathers, as we could.
