May-December romances

At the age of 84, Hugh Hefner is engaged to Crystal Lewis, 24. I also read that actress Vivica Fox, 46, is engaged to Atlanta promoter Omar White, 27. As I read about the pending nuptials for these couples, I started to wonder why so many of us get hung up on age and our target age ranges in dating.

Celebrity aside, if two people have found that they have enough in common, how much does age really matter?

Admittedly, my last two misadventures in dating were with younger guys (both were 9 years younger!) I can’t figure out if it was the age difference that played a role in the break ups or not but I usually vow to leave the younger dudes alone. Of cours, this is also when I meet the really mature for his age, (read: very hot guy) that has me lifting the so-called ban on younger men.

I believe there can be pros and cons to dating younger/older, though. Maybe you just have to decide if it’s worth a shot.

What do you think? What are the really great reasons you should date someone significantly (at least 10 years apart) younger or older ?

In your opinion or past experiences, what are the pitfalls?

Happy Wednesday!

Hahaha well Thanks anyway, Those categories looked like it would have been fun to discuss openly. I too agree that I wouldv’e voted for 2Can on the moniker. I think the other awards were pretty close to being right.

Delight — It’s got some girth to it… you won’t be disappointed… :lol:

Okay, so the Swizzies work a little differently… the categories and nominees will be announced one at a time, and we’ll have an open blog debate to determine the winner then move onto the next category (see how this works perfectly for a slow blog day…?)…

Oh, and if you have write-in nominees, throw those out there, too…

So without further adieu… The first category is:

Best Recurring Theme in Blog Posts

And the nominees are:

abc — For “All women lie”

Stanley Steamer — For “Cats”

Me.lo — For “Polygamy”

Professor/Dirty D</strong — For "$60K"
