24 year old man dating 12 year old
From now own, I’ll stick to men my own age, thanks.
However, I am worried I as well as her can easily fall in love with each other and we are both a little worried and afraid to get hurt.
An older man’s going to be the strong, nurturing guy who takes care of her, teaches her, and treats her like a princess – the kind of relationship that she probably lacked growing up.
Hey, I’m no psychologist – just your friendly, neighborhood dating coach. Whether we like it or not, there is nearly a full generation gap between 28 and 45.
We’re all human beings in a state of constant decay, yeah I get that and none of us are safe from medical problems. These “cougar” scenarios appear so often in Lifetime movies and bad erotica that I blame pop culture, not my inappropriateness, for noticing what a fine little tenderoni the young man was…until he started addressing me as “Ma’am,” and then eventually “Miss Thembi,” extinguishing all of my cougar dreams. He turned out to be the type of guy who mainly cared about drinking and hanging out with his raggedy friends, a group that was thinning by the year as it lost members to wives, careers…you know, actual adulthood. Although dating a “grown and sexy” man may seem appealing, I found that it just wasn’t for me.
But I’m not ready to think about anybody’s prostate for at least another decade. One day Sam invited me to a family barbecue and I found out that his entire family still calls him “Boobie,” and his mother will do an occasional load of laundry for him. Having to deal with inappropriate wardrobes, brothas who mamas still washed their clothes, and men perpetually stuck in 1992 just wasn’t for me.
Being around him was like reliving all of the most mediocre catch-phrases of 1992. He probably never dressed well anyway, but he somehow stopped updating his look around the time that ribbed turtlenecks and Rocawear cargo jeans were hot, and he’s not the only man of his age that I’ve seen rocking pants that look inspired by the Michael Jordan Jean Collection. When I first met Will, 42, he admitted that he needed a haircut, an admission that wasn’t necessary because it was clear that he did.
We called it the “Grown Men in 2010” challenge, and endeavored to meet as many men at least ten years older than us, but not old enough to be our fathers, as we could.
