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!

Good afternoon people! I know I am on CPT. But I had to actually…dare I say it……WORK! :shock: :lol:

Let’s see…on topic…the only thing an old man can do is show me to a young one! I have said it time and time again. I can NOT do pubes that look like Christmas Tinsel. And ugh ( I just barfed a bit)….the 3rd trimester gut! Although I have seen some guys in their 30’s with guts. Come on man….stop lifting steaks and start lifting weights. Actually..do some cardio. I hate the guys who have big muscle arms and chest but got a gut too. Nah bruh…you can not use the diversion method on these Eagle Eyes. BMW sees all! :lol:

The African Guy should get the lifetime achievement award. His banishment was a long time coming. The DD chick just snapped and it was quite entertaining to see her run out of bullets. I vote for the DD chick.

@i’m swiss ~ it’s definitely a toss between you and your darker skinned brother. Both of you are creative…he’s just a little more crude that you! :wink:

I believe we have a winner, and a well-deserved one at that…

The Swizzie for Most Entertaining Blog Banishment goes to:

Me.lo — for “Everything That’s Ever Come Out of His Mouth”

Congrats, my friend. We’ll hold the award for you until your zu.lu behind can find a way back from the wilderness… :lol:

LOL…ya’ll otta quit. Ya’ll are funny….nobody cared to intervene and help that chick during her spazzing days. She had to get banned because of her psychosis and now she’s getting awards and royalties and stuff probably totaling more than her $60K threshold of what she considered low scale pay. It’s funny to read folks opinions now that she’s reading from behind the thick glass.

What I was saying was….it’s a tie between Swiss and .o.l.e.m in the “nasty” category and a tie between ABC and Stanley for their anal-istic attitudes on “CATS” and “Women are born liars”
