In college, one of the non-traditional students (he was 47) in my theater class freaked me out. I was 19 - he sent me 3 dozen roses. I could not have been more horrified. They were beautiful. But he was . . . OLD. It creeped me out.
Once I turned 30, I found myself commenting more and more on the attractiveness about men who were older. One day I found myself commenting on a specific person I knew and it hit me. He was 47.
Last night, I had this semi-erotic dream. I was single. I was on a vacation, cruise, something like that. Four different men were competing for my attention (hey, its my dream - it could happen). During the course of this "vacation" I managed to rule out two of the men - one because he was a complete idiot, and one because he was . . . 20. Too young. I really struggled between the other two men and was in the middle of some great "convincing" when my 5-year old busted in and said "is it time for the birthday party?" After I threw him out, I tried to recapture the gut-wrenching decision when it hit me - I was trying to recreate an erotic dream about two different strangers - both OVER 40.
Baby, looks like you didn't get older - you just moved into my latest category of "hot"!
