"It Puts the Lotion in the Bucket"

I'm attracted to at least two young women in my hall who are approximately half my age, give or take two years. Is that wrong? Because it feels... I dunno... really weird.

I'm guessing that most folks in the dorm don't know what to make of me. I wouldn't either. I imagine their impression of the old dude up on 7th is that of a medieval wizard holed up in a tower doing whatever it is that their kind does. Except that every now and then, the wizard wanders the castle in his staff vest cracking obscure jokes. Nigel? Who's Nigel? And why would he want to dust for vomit?

So, obviously, the crushes will remain crushes because I am not – repeat not – going to date someone with whom I couldn't legally share a carafe of wine. I mean, that's just goddam creepy, man.

That said, there is hope on other fronts: the woman I met Friday night, for starters. One of the grad students in one of my classes, for another. Then there's the girl from two of my other classes who's not 21 yet.

*sigh*

Thirty Two... I don't know if that's too old. A lot of girls (myself included) are very attracted to older men. I really believe it depends on the specific girl. The oldest man I have dated was thirty (while I was nineteen at the time). It was without a doubt difficult, and the criticism was unbearable, but overal it was an experience that I wouldn't trade. I grew up a lot while dating this man, and found that a lot of his stories of his youth made me appreciate my own age.

Have you seen the movie Beautiful Girls? If not, please make it a point to check it out. It may add some comfort to the situation at hand. :P

P.S. Why do you never comment to your comments?

If it helps, I recognize dusting for vomit. But I'm older than you are, so take it for what you will.

And not that long ago I had a "show crush" on a guy who has been married since I was 7 years old. I still have a crush on him. The gene that controls having crushes can't do math.

Staying away from girls who are under 21 sounds like a very good plan that you should not deviate from.

Okay, I have two reactions to share.

My first boyfriend was 11 years older than I was; we met when I was 19. He was an RA in the dorm where I was living one summer. I didn't think he was weird for hanging out with people my age---I understood that that was part of his job---or for being attracted to me! I just thought that he was cool and had a lot of interesting stories to tell.

Second, am I the only one who got the reference in the title of this entry? Ewwwwwwwwwww!
