Cougar Duty

In an attempt at full disclosure (sort of) of my dating life, I have to confess that yours truly is dating a younger guy. He is a solid 9 years younger than I am! It started out pretty innocently because I had no idea just how young the guy was until our first date. He just looked my age and I was too distracted by his muscles to card him!

After polling my friends for their opinion (sometimes I live my life by committee), I received some interesting advice. It ranged from “give him a chance” to “why not play a little bit with him”, and not one person advised me against it.

An older woman and younger man relationship can bring it’s own unique set of dating issues. Not to mention how some folks think that younger men date older women because they have “Mommy issues”. What do you think? In your opinion what is the prognosis for such relationships?

Guys, have you ever dated an older woman? How much older was she? What attracted you to her? Do you have an age limit to how old you would date?

Ladies, am I completely insane for dating a 28 year old? Would you do it? How young would you go before it’s too creepy for your taste?

HAPPY FRIDAY!

I like Maze and have seen them in concert about 3x. However, if I hear “Before I let you go” one more time I might flip out. As soon as the music starts on the radio I’m flipping the channel.

I have actually seen them pull a lady out of her car and handcuff her. I think that it made the news later
I’ve seen them get quite aggravated particularly some of the female ones.

As for me, I have an Entertainment Book and they have coupons for Park’n Ticket and others on Camp Creek. I’d rather just go to my car than wait for someone to pick me up.

Congrats on the scratch….

My uncle (my mom’s baby bro & he and I are a couple of year apart) recently hit fantasy five and won $75,000 and some change after taxes.

Saddly, it won’t be me because I don’t play.

Okay….now I’m sleepy…especially with the nice shower going on outside.

Cee I’ve always liked dance offs, so you’d better start gettin’ your moves together…and in the words of Old Man Sam…. CHALLENNNNGE!

Oh and WD I guess that I never answered your question to the ladies….and that is: Of Course NOT. Why would your decision be considered insane? Now if you were to say that you wanted to marry (any) dude (no matter his age) after the first few dates??? Now that’s just insane.

But you’re only really getting to know the man, so try not to jump to conclusions about what will/won’t happen right now or even in the future…deciding to enter into any relationship is a gamble if you ask me, since none of us can foresee the future; so try not to pick it apart. Enjoy it for what it is right now and address whatever concerns/issues as they come/present themselves…or just through light discussion, unless there are already some concerns to raise your eyebrows about. Otherwise, you’ve already given the relationship a headstart onto a negative path.

Enjoy him and allow the man to enjoy you. You’ve both engaged the situation, let alone each other this far, so he must be somewhat mature enough to converse with…even to the point of considering an actual relationship. And I’m happy for you!…so gon’ head Stellah and letcha’ hair down.

Leggs – okay all this hitting the numbers twice in a row for the same amount???…WE need to talk about the inside connection you have not told us about.

God knows the minds of someone who is a English Major and it ain’t me!!! :) ‘Cause sometimes i can’t make any sense of his writings and writing webs. But i DO NOT want to crush his creative/writing b/c i’m not intuned.

As long as the relationship passes the 7 Year Rule, then it’s fine. (Cut the age of the older of the two of you in half, and add 7. That’s the youngest you can go.)

Go get ‘em Tiger.

@Jamoca. I played my b-day (129) and hit. I believed this to be a good number so I reversed the numbers (921). I played 921 for 14 days. I knew it would come back. Hit last night. Cash 3 favors 9’s 8’s 3’s and 1’s.

Stopping at O’Charley’s and may wind up at Dugan’s (close to home and it’s raining).

@Cee, lil leggs has an A in Algebra. Was making fun at her for thinking she should get half of the $500.

Melo – Funny you say that. At one of our theme parks here, if you urinate in the water, everyone will know its YOU, since the chemicals in the water turns the urine into a different color! LOL But on another note, that is why I get on children that allow themselvess to somehow swallow pool water, public or private.

No Leggs i’m S.E.R.I.O.U.S!

Lil Cee is struggling in English/writing. And I need ppl with English majors to help balance me and him, because the writing web drives me crazy when i have to work on it.

I struggled with the Math as a kid. but look, my favorite teacher in the world Mrs. Foster 9th and 10th grade Algebra and Trig, and LOOK at my line of work now, you cain’t tell i was a rebellion against MATH as one point!!!

There are tons of computer programs that you can get that can help, at least until you can get him some help.

I think that studies show that males have a harder time with English. (which make sense if we aren’t verbally stimulated) It definitely something that I had to really work on. I eventually got it, but only through repetition. My parents got me a spelling dictionary.

The funny thing is that numbers came naturally to me. Math was my thing. In college, I tutored people in Physics even though I didn’t have to take it. AP Calculus gave me college math credit while in high school. Geometric proofs were my specialty.

@Cee, I use to be an English major. What’s his writing style like!

@Melo, it’s raining now so perhaps I stay close to home since I don’t have any invites anywhere!

I’ve been playing 371 for the past week. I only play evening and it 713 fell midday yesterday. I’m going to play 371 for a while. I’m also playing my daughter’s b-day 8/29. 928 fell about 2 weeks ago but I played it wrong and got $40.00. So, I’m waiting for 829 to fall (straight)

it’s kinda like the sign rule. the sign that you should match up with is the third one over. for example, if i’m a CANCER i should be with a LIBRA.

I have to say live your life. Do not base it on numbers financial,material and definately not in a relationship. If you are happy do not put more into it or think any less. My husband is a year younger than me however in my 20’s I was dating a 17 year old that I did not know was 17 until his 18th birthday because he had a fake id and I was new to ATL,however his maturity and ability to handle his business has far surpassed any relationship I have ever had period. My financial,mental,emotional and physical needs were totally fufilled he just got caught up with the wrong people and I left him and now he has to pay the consequences in a very unfortunate way. He really had a great future ahead of him. Remember live your life as it is whatever is happening is suppossed to and it will not be altered by no one but GOD.
