Wow, I have been gone for a minute. Life came and went before I had a chance to write about it. I hate when that happens. No need to play catch up lets just jump into new topics.
Here’s to You Mrs. Robinson
The older woman, younger man debate, let’s get into it. Every time I open a trash rag I notice older celebutants running the streets with hot young men. Perhaps I’m only now taking notice to these older woman/young man relationships because I myself am in one.
My boyfriend and I have a seven year age difference. SEVEN YEARS! I still feel a little shocked when I say it out loud. It’s actually quite strange that I find it so shocking. My last long term relationship had the same age difference but I was the young buck and he was the old fart. No one was shocked when at age 23 my boyfriend was in his 30’s, but the reaction to my boyfriend being seven years my junior was a bit hard for my friends and family to swallow. Most of my friends thought it was great that I had a young piece of man candy to play with, but when it came down to getting serious I could see (and hear) their doubts. Who are we kidding, I had them too. When I started seeing him it was just for fun. He made me laugh, we had the same interests (minus his love for Mary Jane), and well he’s a young stud so the boy can handle himself like a champ behind closed doors. Never did I think that it would evolve into a relationship. After spending tons of time together I could feel myself letting go and falling in love. So in love that I could be 100% myself, something I was never able to do completely in my two previous relationships. He believes in me and pushes me to be a better person. I’ve never felt a more pure love in my life and when he looks at me I know that what we have is rare. I don’t see an age when I look at him; I just see the love of my life.
Then the fear comes.
I am 100% ok with our age difference… most of the time. There are times when people around me get in my head and I start to doubt our relationship. People start asking about the future. Isn’t he too young to get married?! Won’t you be too old to have children!?! Aren’t you afraid he’s going to leave you for someone his own age?! My mind starts racing and the fear takes over. Let’s face it those are valid questions and I usually have some answer that I half believe. He’s mature for his age, or I don’t need to get married, blah blah blah. When I let fear take over and think about those things I lose site of what’s important; I am in love with an amazing man who loves me back! That is enough for me. If I am in a constant fear of him leaving or not getting married then I will miss the magic that is happening. Let me tell you, I feared that my last boyfriend would leave me for someone else constantly and guess what… he did. We do not have control over these things so there is no reason to constantly be worried about them. I will not live in fear but walk by faith and enjoy every second I get to spend with my boyfriend. I will not allow the judgments of others to alter my mood, I know what we have is special and that’s all that matters.
I will tell you this though, if you call me a cougar we are going to have problems. Yes my boyfriend is younger than me, but I am not some bleach blonde divorcee wearing Ed Hardy and a blingy belt. I’m classy bitches and so is my man. That being said here are some older ladies and the young beards they love/loved…
Ryan Renyolds/Sandy Bullock
First of all, way to rebound Sandy! RR is a babe and his beard/abs combo are a win win for you.
Ryan Gosling/Sandra Bullock
I guess if your name is Ryan and you are young then Bullock wants a piece. I don’t blame her! She just became my new hero.
Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz
Eva is another serial cradle robber. But let me just say Eva, way to upgrade sister! I always prefer spicy quesadillas to boring old fromage! Goodbye Tony, hello Mr. Eduardo Cruz!
Ashton and Demi
Awwwww Demi! The one who started it all! Thanks woman, but keep your man clean shaven, his beard isn’t cutting it.
Guy Ritchie and Madonna
Yes I know they are divorced now but Ritchie has a bitchen beard. Plus my babe loves his movies. Also, I think Madonna left him for an even younger Latino boy. Way to go Madge!
That’s all I have for now dudes and dudettes. Till Next Time!!!
