You Should Be Green with Envy of My Green Eyes

Current Mood: Angelic

The way your words keep me in line
I know what I'm here for
Waking up to the green of your eyes
It's something I'll get used to, oh!
~ “Hold My Hand” by New Found Glory

I understand that I have a propensity toward dating men younger than me. This has been an issue since middle school and with very few exceptions; I have maintained this habit with care. It is important to note that I do not in any way SEEK out younger men. I can hear your laughter . . . but truly I don’t. In fact, I often go out of my way to clarify the age difference. See the following example:

“Hey there!”
“Hi. How old are you?”
“Um, 23”
“Okay, well, you need to know that I am 32 and that I don’t date under 25”
“You don’t look 32. And anyway I’ve been with someone who is 35”

For some reason they always say that they have been with someone who is 35. As if 35 is the epitome of ‘older women’. What happens when I get to be 35? Will they all decide that they can admit to being with someone who is 39? Anyway, this little background story was written to set the stage for a compliment (he claims it was a compliment) I received recently. Without further ado, here it is:

“I must say though...you are very attractive. And no I'm not trying to get something from you. I just normally don't look at women who aren't around my age...but you are very well kept.”

My instinct was to laugh. Being ‘well kept’ made me think of an old car that someone has stored in the garage under a tarp for years. I assure you, I have not been lying dormant in storage. Hee hee Anyway, doesn’t everyone know that a woman’s sexual peak occurs AFTER she turns 30? My twenties were for practice.

Now it’s GAME TIME! Who wants Season Tickets?

PERSONAL NOTE: The aforementioned season tickets reference was a joke. Really, it was . . .

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: Pontiac – check; Mazda – check; Honda – soon, very soon!
