There's a recent fad that seems to be taking on. I didn't think much of it until I found myself on the verge of getting into it myself. What do I speak of? Women going out with younger men. I may be narrow minded but have always shouted from the roof tops that younger men were not for me. Why you ask? Because I just thought that they wouldn't be mature enough (you know, because of the theory that an average woman is atleast 4 years older than a man her age in maturity).
Well I've recently realized that I'm smitten by a guy 5 years younger than me. It's a lost cause from the offset, and I've told him as much. It may be because of my mindset or just the things he does (I swear you'd think he were 5!) but its doomed from the get go. I find it interesting though. I know about 5 gals my age going out with younger men with the ages ranging from a 5 -10 (!) year difference. I'm not sure how serious they are, but one wonders. Is it that we've gone desperate and anything would do? Is it that younger men are more sensitive? Is it that we're holding on to the dredges of youth and would do anything to hold on to that fleeting feeling of belonging to the era?
Whatever it is, I won't deny that I smiled at the thought and was entertained by the advances of a man so young.
