Too old dating
I worry that you’re trying to relive your glory days vicariously through me, but as long as we avoid too much frat house nostalgia, we might just be okay.It’s about life stage compatibility, and that isn’t easy to bottle or quantify (no matter what Ok Cupid says).I’m occupied by learning how to take care of myself, metaphorically and literally, and it’s frequently epically self-indulgent. Each and every one of those relationships began somehow, and chances are one or both partners wondered if the age gap was too much to bridge.
, the outstanding analysis blog of online matchmaking site Ok Cupid, has demonstrated with brutal clarity that for women dating online, it’s downhill from here. Apparently, internet lore says there’s a rule for this sort of thing: ♦◊♦ This would suggest that women can only date up, and men can only date down, and that gay people don’t exist." except for aging pageant queens and John Mellencamp. I know this because I once worked with a 42-year-old man who was skipping his daughter’s birthday because "she’ll have one every year, but you never know when they’re going to shut down Burning Man for good."True, another factor is judgment from other people, who may see a 44-year-old going to dinner with a 25-year-old and make judgments about which one of them is drowning in student loan debt.If only I could tell them how many broke, destitute middle-aged guys I’ve slept with, and challenge their ugly stereotypes.At 23, dating young is complicated by that pesky “college” business.Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled you’re educating yourself; I just think it might be hard to date you right now. I buy vegetables and change my sheets on a reasonably regular basis.
