Now that I am often the older man, as friend and lover, I hope to nurture my young friends, to share my experience and what wisdom these 60-plus years may have given me. Sometimes I introduce them to practical pleasures and ways of conducting a life. They bring me so much in return.
My kids make faces and say, "That's so gross!" when I tell them that I was in college when my husband, their step-dad, was in middle school. We get a good laugh out of that! The reality is that I am only five years (almost to the day) older than he is.
This must be a D.C. thing. I went to American University and I too always liked older guys, reason being I had issues and so do you. Of course they want you for sex, you're 22. No one told me that so take my advice, find your own stability and enjoy making your way to the top of Capitol Hill.
