Do dress well Someone once told me a useful rule when it comes shopping for your age.
Twenties = shock; thirties = chic; forties and beyond = cheque. Leave the trend-led streetwear to youngsters who need to compensate for a lack of personality or confidence. Now is the time for creating a capsule wardrobe, a slick canvas of smart pieces which make the most of the fact that you can now actually carry-off “suave” without looking like you're wearing your dad's wedding suit to a funeral.
We’re all human beings in a state of constant decay, yeah I get that and none of us are safe from medical problems. These “cougar” scenarios appear so often in Lifetime movies and bad erotica that I blame pop culture, not my inappropriateness, for noticing what a fine little tenderoni the young man was…until he started addressing me as “Ma’am,” and then eventually “Miss Thembi,” extinguishing all of my cougar dreams. He turned out to be the type of guy who mainly cared about drinking and hanging out with his raggedy friends, a group that was thinning by the year as it lost members to wives, careers…you know, actual adulthood. Although dating a “grown and sexy” man may seem appealing, I found that it just wasn’t for me.
But I’m not ready to think about anybody’s prostate for at least another decade. One day Sam invited me to a family barbecue and I found out that his entire family still calls him “Boobie,” and his mother will do an occasional load of laundry for him. Having to deal with inappropriate wardrobes, brothas who mamas still washed their clothes, and men perpetually stuck in 1992 just wasn’t for me.
If you really like her, just go with the flow and be yourself, regardless of whether “yourself” is a silly, dorky, immature 57-year old or a wise and mature 24.
Do be understanding I can get kind of defensive when dating older guys, worried that some might see me as another notch on the bedpost, or fresh meat to pass the time until someone more serious comes along.
She’s a woman, not a child, after all - even if she is your daughter’s age. “When I was your age...” “Young people are so ____.” “Oh you weren't even BORN when this album was released.” “You were still a toddler in 1989?
” whenever he made a particularly funny joke, saw something interesting, or really just anytime he felt like it. I could not deal with Sam’s wardrobe, and as much as I know all 42-year-old men don’t dress as badly as he did, I’m still sort of traumatized.
Being around him was like reliving all of the most mediocre catch-phrases of 1992. He probably never dressed well anyway, but he somehow stopped updating his look around the time that ribbed turtlenecks and Rocawear cargo jeans were hot, and he’s not the only man of his age that I’ve seen rocking pants that look inspired by the Michael Jordan Jean Collection. When I first met Will, 42, he admitted that he needed a haircut, an admission that wasn’t necessary because it was clear that he did.
From now own, I’ll stick to men my own age, thanks.
Older men, it seems to me, are like gold dust on the dating scene right now.
