Whether they be illicit trysts, flings between unattached individuals, or what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas lusty weekends, when it comes to sharing these secrets everyone has a different reaction. And fair enough. There is enough controversy around this subject to stir up a hornets nest. But why do we care what other people do? Does it matter?
The same question arises when the issue of an age difference between two consenting adults crops up. Why is it okay for a sixty year old man to date or marry (or otherwise) a twenty something woman? With same gender couples, age does not seem to be an issue. But heads sure turn if you see an older woman with a younger man.
For instance, I have two friends in two situations. One told me that recently a young man had become very interested in her and would not let up. He was serious and not just yanking her chain. She asked me what I thought because it really is a dilemma for her. She is well aware of the reaction she would attract if she proceeds. I said why not? Life is too short.
As women, if changes (for women) are going to happen it is up to us to make them happen.
My other friend of the same age has been in a relationship with a younger man for several months. Her attitude is like mine but she adds that she has to not care or not get too attached, just enjoy moment to moment with no expectations. Shouldn’t we do that anyway?
There really are some younger men who are attracted to older women for a number of reasons and they should both enjoy it.
