Old Men and Worms



Now I don't know where the myth came from or where it started, but it was an old tale that if a young girl messed with a old man that she would get worms...Now That has got to be the most funniest thing I ever heard in life, but it did deter me from dating older guys for a long time. What is considered old anyway? I have students that say I am old and I am only 32. The oldest guy I dated was 40 when I was 29 and let me just tell you it grossed me out, not that he was 40 but he just act old and he didnt act that way when I met him. Maybe it was a figment of my imagination because 40 isnt an old age. I mean let's face it, Will Smith, Denzel, Shemar Moore, Tyson Beckford are all over 40, and like Beyonce sings, "I told my friends you can GET IT"....and guys what about Stacey Dash, Jada Pinkett Smith and Lisa Raye all over 40 as well...and I don't even have to ask about whether or not they can get it from you...lol. But what about Cicely Tyson? or Tina Turner? and ladies what about Morgan Freeman or Harry Belafonte? would you even consider it?

So my question today is what is too old for you to date? What is your cut off? or Do you not have a cutoff and date the person not the age? Share your experience of dating an older person and why?

Well my tale starts back in 2007 in my Memphis days....when I met this 40 year old cowboy hat wearing stallion and I was the tender age of 30........LOL I enjoyed dating him he was funny, although he drunk Colt 45 and danced bowlegged I had fun with him. At the age I am now I would probably date someone ten years my senior but I don't want him to act old like chew tobacco or have a nurse that assists him with his daily living duties. But if he nice looking and he is fun and I am not embarassed that he will be mistaken for my daddy or my uncle I am COOL!!!

I personally perfer to date an older dude and always have. They know what they want and tend to be more settled. Their clubbing and skirt chasing ways are USUALLY behind them. Now don't get me wrong some still have the young boy sydrome lol. I want to learn from my man and I love the experience that an older man brings.

Well dammit, I'm 40 and in the prime of my years....I must admit that my sex drive is even higher but sadly no one to calm it down...lol...Nonetheless, at my age right now, I actually want a guy my age and no more than 5 years older or younger than me...I am a ball of energy and I need a man that way as well...I don't want a man who feels he is 40 that life is over...I want a man who feels 40 is just the beginning....I don't think I would go over 45 but hey, you never know Hugh Hefner may be around my corner....ROFL

Ive always been attracted to older women and in the past few years I have gone out with a few women between the ages of 38 to 44. I think the biggest discrepancy of age for me was being 23 and dating a 37 year old woman. I'd dare say that if there was a cool woman who was attractive and fun and she was pushing 50 I would go out with her. If Pam Grier was interested in me you better believe I will be on that too! lol...
