I’ve got nothing against women my own age. I just don’t want to date them.
Many 45-year old women are great mothers and accountants and lawyers and the like. I respect their work but I don’t want to get snuggly with them.
I want a young vigorous colt of a woman who can make babies.
The last five years in particular, I’ve noticed a lot of annoyance by women my age when I date someone in her early 20s.
I don’t fetishize youth. Half the time, I do date women my own age but the phrase “age appropriate” fills me with dread.
I’m compiling a list of the most common things people say to me. Number one would be, “What are we going to do with you?”
Joe* emails: It’s fine for them to set you up with age appropriate women as long as they understand that the appropriate age is half the man’s age plus seven.
