as if i didn't feel old enough already

my friend julie (late 20's) was hanging out with some younger (early 20's) guys at a bar over the weekend. (and no, she wasn't trying to pick them up, one guy in the group was a client of her friend and they'd all run into each other while out.)

she said that all night they made comments about how cool it was to be hanging out with "mature women" and kept calling them "cougars."

if i were there i probably would have chimed in with, "oh! you shouldn't, really shouldn't have. you think i don't feel old enough as it is?!"

and while we're on a related topic (in case these young guys do get a much older woman into bed), it's never a good idea to tell a woman before you sleep with her, "i think this is going to be the best sex i've ever had."

there are several reasons why this doesn't play off well. 1.) it makes the guy look like he doesn't know what he's doing 2.) it puts wholly unnecessary pressure on the woman to impress and likely 3.) makes the woman say, "oh god, i suppose he thinks i'm going to do all the work then? fuck no! and put as little effort into it as possible."

and just before i was ready to post this, i read this. i relate jc, i relate.

since when does late 20's = cougar?

i thought you had to be 40-plus, but i can't keep up with this crap.

No shit to Cadiz's comment. I think that I've never put that definition under 40...

I remember in King Arthur's day, we didn't talk so much about getting old. Run through with swords, yes. Getting old, not so much.
