Watching an episode of M T V ‘s C a t f i s h and this particular episode of a 40-y/o woman who “fell in love” with a so-called 27-y/o guy. (In this episode it turned out that the ‘guy’ was not a guy at all but an obese 31-y/o woman using the pic of a 17-y/o high school senior 🙄)
What baffles me is how women in their 40s think that a relationship with a male in their 20s could possibly work. I was in my mid-30s and guys in their late 20s expressed interest in me but I never let it go further because… OMG… I just couldn’t find common ground and their (obvious) immaturity annoyed me no end.
Men in their 40s are still children what more men in their 20s?! I am happy for a friend who married a 28-y/o when she was 40… but I am thinking that her case is more of an exception rather than the norm, though. (Well, she seems to be happy… but entahlah pulak, kan?)
I know someone who was nearly 50 who fell in love with a 29-y/o. I don’t know why she didn’t expect for it to not work out given the huuuuuge gap in age. At any rate, what was she doing being a kertu coquette and even consider ‘dating’ men of that age anyhoos? Even though it’s just for the sex… I don’t know. Maybe I am judging based on my own values and principles… so admittedly, I am not exactly being fair.
Then again, this is a woman who NEVER discusses her age openly even with her (so-called) closest friends. She does come across as someone way younger in her posts and the way she is online, whilst never admitting to be of a younger age at the same time she never really indicates exactly how old she really is. I think she purposely keeps it vague, as a way to keep her options open when it comes to guys, I suppose.
Maybe she believes her own ‘hype’, that she is really younger than she is and that is why she probably thinks that relationships with these absolutely younger men would even work.
The realist in me snorts and splutters in cynical disbelief. 🙄
