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!

Goodness gracious you guys are on a roll.

BMW’s been talking about Christmas tinsel pubs forever. I think she will faint and get a concussion if she should ever actually see a pair. Glad to see she’s nominated for that phrase cuz it’s funny as all get out.

I don’t think DD would end up on snapped, we all know that she is wound up. Snapped should be someone who would do a complete 180 if they hear the wrong news. I vote for Raqi or Kimmie. LOL

Purp – I think you right. For the same reason I dont think BMW should win. Heyal for her it would be pre-meditated. I read a touch of Gangsta in Kimmie from time to time so ion think it would be snapped so much for her either. I second the Raqi nomination.

Alright… this was a close one, but I believe we have a winner…

The Swizzie for Best Blog Quote goes to:

BMW for “Christmas Tinsel Pubes”

Stay tuned… the award we’ve all been waiting for is coming up…

@PR ~ I’m with you on DD not ending up on Snapped…it’s usually the sensitive ones who gave their all only to be blindsided by their husbands/love interests…DD would go hard and perhaps slice someone, but not kill them! :lol:

@PR ~ it has been mandated that everyone takes their blog vests home and don them with gunfire erupts…did you ever take yours home because I know you were issued one. Everyone in Blogsville has one.

Naw, if you see me on the news in handcuffs, it will be due to someone hurting my family or trying to mess with me or my money. Bet.
