Recently I've been enjoying the admiration of a younger guy. As in, 23. Given that I am now 30 and not feeling the best about myself, having someone like me who is younger is sort of nice. He asked me out the other day though and I turned him down. He seems like a nice guy and he makes me laugh but I'm not ready to get involved with anyone else right now. One of the things I said to him at the time though "Do you not think I'm a bit old for you?"
Apparently it hadn't even been a CONSIDERATION for him, while I was feverishly thinking "He's younger THAN MY BABY BROTHER!"
But it gets worse. Because he has a picture of himself on his facebook that I actually took one look at and thought "wow, he is CUTE in that. I could fancy him like that."
Turned out he was SEVENTEEN in the picture.
Man, do I feel like a cougar now . . .
