But whatever - if young women really know all there is to know today, they have a good fulfilling life ahead of them!

Never in my life have I found you know everything. So I guess you just need to keep on practicing to make it perfect. Alas, such a hardship practicing... I figure if I keep on practicing till the grave I might get ok at some stuff.

I know! It seems like that practicing just keeps better and better! I don't know how it is possible.

Ditto. My brief 29 year one night stand I met in New Orleans. 6 1/2 yrs.



heh heh heh - She had visited her brother who had met and married a New Orleans I talian while in the Marines. After a week in New Orleans - she decided 'crap' I ain't gonna live in Philly no more - a couple years before I transferred from Denver.

Now one engineer I know who transferred did marry a New Orleans lady maybe 15 yrs older - give or take. And he passed away young - 58. She is still going strong. Hard core RV'ers - they did get a lot of traveling in.

Is this a fun thread or what?

My younger friends call me a cougar. I'm not - really.
(Just a terrible flirt sometimes and younger guys are safe.) Actually, I don't even like younger guys - and it's embarrassing when your son's friends hit on you. Especially to your kid. I wonder if the older woman/younger man thing is becoming more common because when I go out with my oldest son, people usually think we're together-together - which is kind of creepy. He looks older than his age, I look my age, but am kind of immature at times - it all evens out.

FinanceDude, I'd be really interested in the age you had these relationships and the ladies' ages, and why you were attracted to these particular two ladies. I'm really fascinated by the dynamics of those relationships having had more than a couple myself in the past.

First one was when I was 21 and she was 33. I was working at a bar attending college and she was a business owner who was divorced. We became friends first over time and eventually that blossomed into a relationship. I admit I never really thought of her as girlfriend material until I found out how generous she was with local food pantrys and charitable causes..........I guess that hooked me. The fact she was gorgeous and had men hitting on her all the time didn't hurt.........

The second one was when I was 24 and working in sales management. When I was at a conference in Minneapolis, a few of us went out to a couple bars in the area. At one of them, there was a group of flight attendants partying. I met a couple of them and hit it off with one. We ended up at an after-bar party until 5:00am, and "Alicia" and I stayed up talking until sunrise. I found out she was 36 and single. She told me relationships were hard because most men couldn't deal with her schedule, and she hated dating pilots..........

Neither one lasted longer than 2 years, but I found out that there were some awesome women out there, if you didn't fixate on age. My friends of course, gave me a lot of grief, calling them "sugar mommas" of mine. However, I didn't care. What those women taught me about relationships has helped me to this day...........

One last thought: As a man in my 20's, what those 30-something women taught me about sex was eye-opening to say the least........

I think you could be the spokesperson for Cougars. Although, I am not sure 30 something qualifies as Cougar...

Well, I enjoyed that FinanceDude. I can only hope and pray that there are some fellas strolling around thinking the same about me.
It would be surprising to some how many younger fellows are really intrigued by older women. I've even seen this in my own son, so he's normal I guess..ha!. It's like a fascination with an older woman thang I assume...and it passes.
