He was more exciting to be with than any of the 20-something guys I knew.And before I even knew what a great screw he was, I was already smitten with his wit and the way he filled out a pair of pants. Should I really have let 15 years come between me and happiness, just so I could avoid judgment from girls like Sue?It’s quite common to see older men and younger women dating in this country and all over the world.You might even say Western men are better able to maintain their desire for younger women in a way that isn’t as pedophilic as others.I really should have answered her question with the long list of truly great things about dating an older man.For as long as I can remember, I’ve preferred older men.My new tall, dark and handsome boyfriend was standing across the room looking so fine in his shirt; I couldn’t take my eyes off him. Meanwhile, I was at the snack table and before I could curse myself for leaving him to go in for another cheesy cracker, I was accosted by a buddy’s wife I barely knew, a bitch named Sue.

After politely playing 20 questions with Sue about my new boyfriend, I knew this was the one she was getting at.
