I've been sadly single since my boyfriend of several years dumped me over the phone in April. So, the other night, I was chatting with a guy while we were all bowling. I asked him, what are you looking for and he told me intelligent, attractive, self confident...and under 30. Now, I'm 38...he's 38..yet anyone our age is "just too old to date". I'm not looking to date or fuck anyone right now, but after talking with my friends, checking the ads on Craigslist, Manhunt & Adam4Adam...well, yeah. I'm too old to interest a man who is the same age! What the hell is up with that? Has the youth obsessed culture finally rotted even the hearts of men? When I'm ready to date, am I supposed to start looking for someone 15 years younger than me? On the flip side, I'm being relentlessly pursued by a 26 year old who, everytime I see him calls me "Hot Daddy" and wants to go on a date. Fucking him would be fun, but I can't imagine dating someone 12 years younger than me.
