Dating someone much older than yourself

Then walks in this handsome, older guy with a mysterious glow to his eyes, a raspy sultry voice and, really, ladies… My least favorite question that I get asked is “What do you have in common with someone 20-plus years older/younger than you!?

” Well, I don’t see my boyfriend with a big neon sign blinking his age across his forehead every two minutes.

Unfortunately, I was 21, and the pickins’ for established fellow 21-year-olds was, well, nonexistent.

The only guys I knew were frat boys that got drunk and peed their beds once a week—not man material.

I have to start with the disclaimer that I certainly don’t believe relationships between older men/women and teenage partners are healthy.

Well, my friends, it is so and it is so not as disturbing as you have convinced yourself it is.

There would be of course people who would disapprove but nobody would call her a pervert. It's only men who take advantage of younger women.
