It’s Official: I’m a Panther (sort of)
That’s what my ex, who was a number of years younger than me, said when I jokingly asked him if I was a cougar. He said cougars are women in their 40’s, so you must be a panther. Or maybe he said jaguar. Who cares; all three are sleek, sexy, fast cats! I didn’t take it seriously anyway, since I don’t have a penchant for younger men. In fact, I’d prefer a peer, but as I get older, so many men my age remind me of … my grandfather. I don’t just mean looks, because I’m not what I once was either. I also mean attitude.
Anyway, awhile back, I attended (‘anonymous literary event.’) Currently single and always interested, I scanned the room for appropriate partners. There were a couple couples. A few men who were the wrong size or hair color. A woman dressed kind of like an older sexy librarian. A woman dressed kind of like a little girl. A young couple who seemed more interested in making out. A young loner. A cat. I sighed and turned my attention to the readings.
Most people read poetry. Good poetry, too. So I felt a little self-conscious when I read from my blog post Oh Dude! Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good story. But it’s humorous. Just a tad out of place amidst powerful writing about things like child abuse and existential angst. I noticed it didn’t inspire as many giggles as usual. But apparently it inspired something.
After the readings, I chatted a bit. Drank a little wine. Complimented a few people on their work. Petted the cat. As I was thanking our host and preparing to leave, the young loner was standing nearby. It would have felt rude to just ignore him, so I struck up a conversation. He asked for my card.
About a week later, I received an email: “Hi Lynda, we met at (‘anonymous literary event.’) I was the young buck in the leather jacket. How are you?” I was curious as to what he wanted. Writing tips? Friendship with a wise sophisticate? He couldn’t possibly be interested in me … sexually … could he? Well, my reading had been the story of a fantasy about a younger man. The irony was that it was completely fictitious.
I told him that I was busy finishing my semester, which was true. Another week went by. I submitted my grades.
Then another email: “Will you be in need of an alcoholic beverage in the near future? I go very well with a drink.” Clever. With classes done, I was feeling free. I responded the only way I could. “You’re so perceptive,” I wrote back with a smile. There are worse ways to spend an afternoon than in flirtatious communion with a charming young man across a vodka martini (shaken, not stirred).
That night I was celebrating at a club with some friends when I received a text from Young Buck. Apparently he was also out drinking with comrades and his thoughts had returned to me.
May I be bold and ask to see you tonight?
May I be bold and ask what your interest is?
You play coy very well, darling. Ok then, just some stimulating conversation, of course.
Am I being coy? Or just waiting for you to play your hand?
Admit it, you like that I’m clawing at your door like a cat in heat.
OMG, 0-75 in under a minute, Mr. Mustang.
Well, you’re the one driving the stick.
So I gather you want to fuck an older woman?
(pause while considering how to answer this question)
Lynda, I don’t mean to cause you distress, nor to objectify you as an older woman. I am merely intrigued by your sensual nature. If our interaction leads to your bedroom…
(silence, elevated heart rate, slightly heavy breathing)
…then I will fuck your brains out.
OK. Maybe we overdid the metaphors. And maybe it would make a better story if I had agreed. But while Robin Thicke says you know you want it, Louis CK tells me I should hardly go out on a date with a man, let alone invite one over late at night when we’re both under the influence. Besides, I’m not what I once was, and I get tired.
Long story short, we did soon get together. I found out that he knows his way around a … room. Also that I’m not that tired. At the start I joked, “Hang on, I’m trying to think whether I have any lingerie that completely covers my body.” He stopped me, took my face in his hands and said, “You are a beautiful, sensual woman. You have nothing to be embarrassed about.” That was a very freeing moment. (Men of all ages: Take note!)
I don’t like to kiss and tell. Well, only to my closest friends. And you’ll become one of them when I publish my memoir in progress. But here and now I’ll only say this. He was aggressive. Yet tender. And when I told one friend a particularly juicy detail, her response was, “OMG, he DOES know how to ____ _ _____!” We also talked. Quite a bit. And laughed. Quite a lot. Non, je ne regrette rien.
Interesting that sometime later, I woke from a dream to a very unusual occurrence. A poem in my head:
No! Don’t send me a boy.
His skin is too fresh,
My subconscious spoke. So while Young Buck remains a fond memory, I’m still looking for what I described in my story Jungle of the Heart: “…a man with gray in his beard who will look into my eyes and see worlds.”
Let me add, and one who has a little seasoning to him.
In Licking the Spoon, my book in progress on food, sex and relationship, I reveal what only an experienced woman can – the exciting features of men at different ages!

Great story. Might need a sequel though:-)
Thank you Barb! LOL – don’t they all! Guess that means I’ll have to keep living and, you know, doing stuff. 🙂
That’s awesome Lynda! You could use a good Young Bucking from time to time. You do still ‘have it’.
Todd, you’re hilarious as always! Thanks for the compliment, and for reading.
Just another well written piece, intriguing, pulling me in and leaving me wanting more. 🙂
Oh there’s plenty more where that came from, Diana! 🙂 Thanks for reading!
Great piece, and I love the texting dialog especially. But–you knew I’d say this–all three cats are not the same. Look up panthers versus cheetahs and you’ll see a metaphor waiting to be used. And now, I’m not going to extend that to the bedroom, but if you want to, go ahead!
Yes, Susan, I knew you would! And honestly, I thought about adding cheetah to the list. I’ll have to find out more about the specific differences, and maybe I will apply that to the bedroom in a future post! 🙂
Love your writing. Yes, “Men of all ages: Take note!” If I can’t get more of the story then
what better way to end than with your poem and pictures of Sean Connery. I’ll have the
seasoned one on the right.
Thank you, Fran! Yes, youth is beautiful, but there is something to be said for seasoning! 🙂
Great Story love the text made me feel like i was there awesome!!!!!
Thank you, Angelica! I thought the texts were pretty cute, too. Thanks for reading!
Did you, or did you not, fuck him?
“Imagination is crazy, your whole perspective gets hazy
Starts you asking a daisy “What to do, what to do?”
“Hang on, I’m trying to think whether I have any lingerie that completely covers my body.” He stopped me, took my face in his hands and said, “You are a beautiful, sensual woman. You have nothing to be embarrassed about.”
Wish there were more young men like this 🙂
And I wish there were more older men like this! 🙂
‘Your only as old as you feel’, has always been my philosophy. If you wanna feel young I say have at it Lynda, You only live one life.
Right you are, Nicholas! And old enough not to care what others think. I have to admit I felt a little funny publishing that blog because I’m really not attracted to young men, and don’t want my students (in particular) to think I’m looking at them with lustful eyes. But that particular young man had a very mature approach, I must say. 🙂
Wonderful that you have that kind of relationship with your ex!
It’s not always successful, but I try to remain friends with my exes (sp?) It doesn’t make sense to me that one day someone can ‘love’ another and the next day (or whatever) ‘hate’ that person and they’re gone from their lives. If I cared for someone and they haven’t done me any egregious harm, then I am likely to always care for them. And if we can remain in each other’s lives, all the better.
I really enjoyed this article, it made me laugh because my aunt went through something similar as well.
That sounds like an interesting story, Georgina! Thanks for reading.
Haha, this post is really awesome to read!!! This article remind me a old Chinese quote. I love your article’s quote the most. Very awesome article to read!!!!!!
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. Although I find myself wondering, what is the old Chinese quote! 🙂
Wow this is an awesome story. Young Buck had a lot of guts and seems to be a very confident man. This post is so true that no matter how “old” someone thinks they might be, they can still be free in their sexual nature. It’s amazing to hear how a younger man is not looking at the age of the female but instead focuses on the sexual nature and seductiveness of the female.
I thought it was sweet that that was his focus also. And I must say, he was confident, and that was what won me over. I wish more young men realized that.
You go, Lynda! Gotta agree with Young Buck, if someone is sexy, they’re sexy. Regardless of their age.
From beginning to the end, this story kept me wanting to find out what would happen next. Who would have known that approaching the “loner guy” would lead to that! Very intriguing story, I enjoyed it!
Believe me, even when we talked at the bookstore I had no idea what he was thinking! He told me later he almost followed me outside! But decided to wait and play it cool.
It’s definitely hard to find any guy like Young Buck at any age! It’s nice to be reminded that all guys aren’t similar, and there are men who display confidence positively than showing their “confidence” by talking negatively about others (e.g. “My penis is probabably bigger than his”).
If only more guys knew how attractive confidence is!

Whoa, that guy is so bold, witty at that. This story totally caught me by surprise did not expect you to be un-seemingly vulgar haha.
Haha Yosio! People do have different sides that they show in different places. I think vulgarity serves a purpose at times!
“I am merely intrigued by your sensual nature”
What a great line from the “young buck,” and definitely a wonderful story!
It was a wonderful line, Randy. His openness and confidence were contagious!
Good luck in the future Lynda
Thank you for reading!
Young Buck seems to be pretty mature, courageous and aggressive. By not seasoned, do you mean he is not mature enough?
He was all those things, Kelly. But when you’re older, you know that in the long term nothing matches experience. And it’s a deeper way of seeing things that is hard to explain.
I love this article because I have seen situations where women date younger man and I think, if you want, go for it, for the fun only, but for a relationship, I think it depends on the couple.
I have had a couple relationships with men who were younger than me that did work for a long time, but not THAT much younger. 🙂
Haha great writing piece, I especially loved the insert of text made me feel as I was there getting these replies too
It made for a very interesting night!
OMG, great story just the laugh I NEEDED after a long day of school.
Great Story! 🙂
Are you still in contact with young buck? Lol
No, we went our separate ways. But I am sure I will run into him again one day. Hmmm… 🙂
Just reading the exchanged text gives me butterflies, I could only imagine the adrenaline coursing through you in those moments. Such a story to tell, looking forward to some more.
omgs this was so awesome to read! definitely a a great post! go linda! this was my fav part …” He stopped me, took my face in his hands and said, “You are a beautiful, sensual woman. You have nothing to be embarrassed about.” That was a very freeing moment. (Men of all ages: Take note!)….. wish more guys like this
I loved that moment too, it was a game-changer and very wise, kind and mature of him.
Haha this was a great story, way to go professor.
Great story. My favorite part was the exchanged texts. Pretty funny!
As an older person I don’t text that much, but I sure learned how fun it can be that night!
This is the first blog post I have read and it left me with my jaw dropped. It’s probably the best thing I have read in a really long time! I wish I could put a face to Young Buck, he sounds amazing! haha
I wish I could post his picture, but he might sue me. Or he might pay me, LOL.
Honestly, I love the poem that got stuck in your head about wanting a seasoned man. I honestly see a lot of truth in that. It is almost like a fresh steak. It’s just a steak. But when it is seasoned and cooked, it has more flavor and experience .
Great analogy, thank you!
Great story! I love how fearless you are!!!!
Wow, fearless – thank you, Jessica! (PS, it comes with age – If you’re open to it.)
“Petted the cat.”
This was a great story ! You have an incredible talent for writing !
I’m glad you’re enjoying it!
Omg so many thoughts running through my head
I wonder what…???
I loved this post I don’t think thats being a cougar hahah. But i think that its fine if you like younger guys nothing wrong with that. My favorite part would have to be when he said “You are a beautiful, sensual woman. You have nothing to be embarrassed about.” that is so true and i wish all men could feel that way. Love the post.
I was so impressed with his maturity and understanding of women.
Thank you for sharing this. I really enjoyed your poem.Pretty funny really enjoyed this! (:
Thanks, and especially for commenting on the poem! Weird how it just appeared in my dream brain.
wow.. i’m jealous haha and i need to know what happened that night! really excited for the book.
Well, I hinted at the ending, but I didn’t want to get too graphic. 🙂
Love this article I think you did a great job.
It’s really fun to write these stories!
I won’t consider myself a panther (not even sort of) if I was able to attract Young Bucks in the near future. I mean, they’re attracted to me.. So, I’ll take it rather as a compliment. Funny and great story!
I take it as a compliment, too!
I enjoy the story. Although I didn’t know what to expect at the end there. lol
Haha, neither did I, Bobby!
Oh my, this story is hot and steamy yet funny! Loved it! 🙂
Yes, it WAS hot and steamy, and I’m glad you see the humor in it!
I think you should share some of these stories in class to be honest… I found it VERY funny and I was able to follow easily and it was entertaining.
I hear your point, but I do like to make it optional – not every student wants to hear about their teacher’s sex life! (Although there is a lot to be learned from it!)
Great story! Love how blunt you are in your text messages. Straight to the point!
Well, I wasn’t doing it alone, ha ha!
I like Jaguars they are better than Panthers lol. Anyway just wanted to say I like that guy he is smooth 🙂 really glad to read this and know you are having fun especially after some of the sad stories you shared in class
Yes, I do like my students to know that I’m living a happy life in spite of setbacks. And yes, he is smooth – I like sharing how his confidence got him somewhere he wanted to go.
Interesting article! Kept me wanting to read more. 🙂
Hopefully you’ll keep reading!
hahahahaha i love the text messages ! And the story. go sexy young men!!
I’ll second that! He sure had confidence, which gets you far in this world.
Interesting story! I have to say I really enjoyed the messages that were exchanged between both of you.
Yes, those messages were pretty provocative, huh! 🙂
This is been one of the biggest fantasies I have, and reading yours makes me feel like I am living it… Great story!
Fantasies are so fun!
The panther comment! That guy is quick on his feet! Love it!
Yes, he was very quick. He also had good timing.
I love how you wrote this. I wanted it to never end!!! Can’t wait to read more posts and your book!!!
Saying you wanted it to never end is the greatest compliment!
Fantastic story! I’m thinking of sharing this with a friend; she likes these types of stories.
I hope you do! 🙂
Funny intro! Love it!
Oh my! Very provocative! Your stories always keep me wanting to read more!
I’m glad! Thank you! (I hope to keep writing more as well!)
“Men of all ages, take notes!” I am! A very “interesting” read… out of the articles I have read so far this one is the most interesting.
I’m glad you liked it! And that you took note LOL.
I loved this story. You are a very good writer.
I’m glad you enjoyed it, thank you!
The whole time I was reading this I had a smile on my face. I probably looked weird, since I was in the Library with tons of people around me, but your blogs are such a fun read. I think it was courageous of you to explore your “panther” side and not distant yourself from new encounter, for I too wouldn’t generally take interest in a younger man, and when I see myself in my 40s or 50s I would agree with you and think I’d find myself more focused on men, not boys, who are handsome, not hot, have a thing called maturity that will allow themselves to fall in love and rid themselves of that silly game of cat and mouse we all play in our 20s. But since you allowed yourself to open up to this “young buck” I need to know was there a second date or did you just end it like that?
We’ve had a few fun texts, but that was pretty much it – an exploration on both our sides. I know I will run into him again, though, and I look forward to it – not for more “young buck” but just a laugh about a fun,hot and tender experience we shared.
Your story was very interesting. I wanted to read more because I honestly felt that I was reading like, Fifty Shades. I hope that you find Mr. Right soon.
That’s a funny comment, Nancy. Thanks for the good wishes!
Amazing story, has all the moments for a romantic comedy: Sweet, funny, and sexual tension but with better dialogue!
Better dialogue – why thank you!
The exchange of text messages made me laugh! He seems very witty. I love how you debunk the misconception that only teens and young adults send flirtatious messages, because I am sure it happens throughout all ages! Great post as always!
Yes, he is witty – and cleverness gets me every time! As long as it’s not at someone’s expense.
I feel like this could be turned into a short movie plot. Humorous, cute and entertaining.
Why thank you, Ryan – and interesting you say that because “he” is a filmmaker! But he didn’t ask me if he could write the script. 🙂
Such a great story, really had me intrigued!!! The texts were so straight forward which kept me wanting more and to know what happened next. You are an amazing writer and so courageous with going out of your comfort zone, hopefully one day I can be like that. Such a great blog, I LOVEDDDD IT!!!!!!
Just keep an open mind and keep growing, you can be any way you want to be!
This article was awesome!! When I saw the title I was hoping it would talk about the whole “cougars” word and it was much more lol I too have had those moments where I’ve realized I need a man and not a boy. Im 27 and I’ve had my fair share of young boys and but more recently I dated someone who was 7 years older than me and man was it an experience. It’s so very true to say “you don’t know what you got till it’s gone”. It took someone older to show me what it’s like to have something meaningful and that handles their business. Nowadays I am just not interested in something not worth my effort, and lately all these “youngins” seem interested in one thing and it’s so frustrating. I swear if one more young dude says the wrong thing to me I might just swear off guys in general because “ain’t nobody got time for that” lol
There are advantages to dating both younger and older, I think. In the end, it comes down to the quality of the person.
This was so interesting and funny to read! I love your humor and honesty. keep it up (:
I love the dialogue . great way to keep the audience entertained haha.
Yes Rani, I thought it turned out quite well!
This was indeed a romantic story that also ends with a degree of excitement ! XD However, I couldn’t help but wonder about the second to last line “…a man with gray in his beard who will look into my eyes and see worlds.”…which was beautiful by the way. Did this develop due to your relationship with your ex, whom you have mentioned to be quite a few years younger? I hope you don’t find this to be a rude question. It’s just that I dated a younger man before and it didn’t end in good terms and that quote just seems to capture what I felt then so perfectly.. in a sense.
My ex was younger but definitely had gray in his beard! I just find that young men are not particularly interesting to me (usually 😉 ) because they lack the maturity and experience of older men.
This story made me laugh and cheer at the same time. You go girl! Great writing!
Thank you! It was a one of a kind event, but you can probably see why I made an exception for this gentleman. 🙂
What a nice intro (as this was my first pick of the selection) to the personal life of well rounded and exciting woman. I think the text message exchange would have driven me to his door- a man who plays with words should always play with me. ;]
Haha, I LOOOVE wordplay, too! He was so clever.
Such an intense story, I need to find me a cat.
LOL Frank! 🙂
This is great! I hope I’ll be just as much of jaguar as you! Tyler, frank, and I read this post together and giggled throughout the whole story. I loved this!
Thank you Justyne! How cute to imagine you guys reading it together! (I’m blushing a little – but only just a little!)
Such an intense story! Like some of the comments above, maybe a sequal? lol Straight to the point, Funny!, and erotical.
I think it was a one-time thing, but you never know, Paul! Meanwhile, glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
Jaguar, Cougar, which ever one you might be your confidence is what really drew the young buck in:)!!!
That’s right – and vice versa, too, Silvia!
Wow, professor this was an intriguing and magnificent story :)! I really enjoyed this story as well as making me laugh, what i can say about this is that love has no age, as well as my self i have a partner in which she is a couple of years older than I am.
Interesting how great of a connection You and Buck had and the way that he was very adoring and nice to you was just awesome!
I can really say that i enjoy all your stories as well as your posts!
I’m glad you enjoyed it! And yes, sometimes age does not matter. Although this was more than a couple of years LOL.
I don’t think it’s the age in particular of the man… I believe it’s the maturity and the level of respect in his approach to a woman. Men of all ages know exactly what they want in a woman.. It’s the woman that has to have confidence in herself and her ability to tame her inner kitty ((not to be confused with her kitty in a sexual manner)).. There’s nothing wrong with being a cougar, panther or a jaguar. I sometimes find myself interested in a young hottie. However, I find that young hotties want a “young woman” as a companion. It is rare to find a young and mature man that is ready to settle with a “seasoned woman” that has children the same age as him. In my experience, being a panther only satisfies your sexual needs and nothing else. If a woman is in a proper state a mind and can engage in a sexual relationship with “no strings attached”, then kudos to her!! I like to see myself as a born again virgin.. With that being said, I proudly hang up my panther trophy in the hopes to find a well mannered man my age that knows what he wants in a woman and knows exactly how to get it!!!
I hear you! And the truth is, while I can appreciate the beauty of the young, it takes a lot more to hold my interest now.
This is such an amazing story. I would like to comment and say that I thought this was very romantic piece. I really enjoyed the dialogued and can tell with your excitement toward the end of the post!
It certainly was a fun, and enlightening, experience!
When he said “You are a beautiful, sensual woman. You have nothing to be embarrassed about.” was the best part. More guys these days have to be like him
If only they knew how freeing that can be! To let go of worry and self-consciousness.
I find it quite intriguing the way the communication started out. He was just some random guy that you struck a conversation with. Then it blossomed into something else. It’s almost like young couples today, how they play hard to get then all of a sudden get right into it. No matter what the age is we all want some loving!
I certainly have to agree with that! As we chatted in the bookstore, I had no idea what might happen.
I really enjoyed the story, mostly because of those text messages. I wish I could flirt like that, unfortunately I am a complete novice when it comes to flirting.
Well, let’s just say I have a LOT of years of experience. He was young, but had experience – or maybe he just had a knack for it.
*Sigh* memories like these are wonderful~ They’re like a Fairy tale. It’s so dream like but it stays as a fond memories later in the years. Thank you for this. Nudged a fond memory of mine. 🙂
I loved this little story, it was hilarious! 🙂 The text chat was probably my favorite. Can all guys learn from him when he said “You are a beautiful, and sensual woman. You have nothing to be embarrassed about”? Hmm, would you ever tell how much older you were than the “young buck”? I’m sorry, I just a bit curious lol 🙂
You can ask me privately. 🙂
And yes, women would love it if more guys took that attitude!
Oh my gosh!! I was on the edge of my seat! Have you ever considered writing erotic romance novels? Seriously. You have a gift! If you used this encounter and made a whole book out of it, I’m sure it’d be the next 50 Shades of Grey. Perhaps even better!
Thank you! I’m actually engaged in more serious writing than that right now, but it’s fun to think that maybe I have a backup. I’m tickled that you were on the edge of your seat though. 🙂
Awesome story! I love reading your stories on personal experiences.
Hoping there’s more in the book haha Looking forward to reading your book!
Oh, I’ve got stories! 😉
Good! Make sure you give us some good reads please.
first initial thought after reading the first few lines was how (being 19 but being into guys older usually at least mid 20’s) I feel the same way! of course I don’t think of my grandpa but I always remember they are basically my uncles and older brothers age. its such a mood killer haha
I tend to like men from about 10 years younger than me to my age. This was unusual for me.
this was a great read! because ive been tricked by cougers and panthers alike lol. I dated a girl who lied about her age by about 7 years lol so she was 28 in my eyes n she ended up pushing 34. the experience was great and caused me to pursue older women. realizing the vast difference in maturity was a powerful factor. I see the side of you that would always keep the spark so im glad you are happy even through ther many battles youve had. your an inspiration in many ways. thanks for sharing, michael.
This post is one of my favorites because for a second, I forgot that you were my professor and I felt like I was reading a prelude to something like Fifty Shades. Nevertheless I still have respect and this story is definitely a fun one to tell. I wonder what he DOES know what/how to do!
Also, having a cougar/panther/jaguar for a professor is something most won’t admit but it’s pretty dang cool.
I’m not a true cougar/panther because in truth I don’t ‘hunt’ for my prey. But that one time…he brought it out in me I guess! 😉
I completely love this article! I loved how open you were to explain your ecpierence with this and how comfortable you are with it.
It can feel vulnerable to reveal such personal things, but I tend to be very open. I thought it was an experience worth sharing. 😉
Wow, I really was not expecting such a story. Great job in taking responsibility and not do anything drastic under the influence of alcohol.
Yes, that’s part of the lesson there, isn’t it!
The title of the article caught my attention, but as soon as I started reading I was mesmerized by the way you two replied to each other.
Me too! It was quite a unique experience.
another fun read! You’re such a fantastic writer!
Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
I’ve been called a milf for many years… at 37 I believe I’m closer to a cougar. I like younger men. Not teenage young but still younger than myself. I have a hard time dating men my age or older. They are just not as fun and the older men don’t take direction in the bedroom very well. Younger guys are more eager to please and learn.
Cougar or milf, the point is that if you’re happier dating younger men (and as long as they’re legal), and they with you, that’s what matters. I would actually prefer men my own age because we share a similar cultural perspective, but like you, I find many men my age have kind of given up on having fun.
Thank you for sharing your personal experience professor.
You’re welcome! It was fun to write about (almost as fun as the experience! 🙂 )
Well I feel better now that at least I didn’t remind you of your Grandfather! But I definitely haven’t given up on having fun, I just know it won’t be with you.
We’re never too old for fun!
It’s nice to hear or read that any age past 40 doesn’t mean that sex stops. Thanks Professor for informing all readers that all ages go through the same thinking when it comes to a potential mate.
Oh man, you had to read this one first! LOL! But actually, I’m glad to show younger people that older people have many of the same thoughts, feelings and experiences. We’re still young inside!
A lot of people believe age can be a big “no no” in relationships. I believe that age is just a number and you can fall in love with anyone that you choose!
Well, I would call this lust not love. But I know what you mean!
Lynda, thanks for sharing! Love how open you are about your sexuality. I although have never dated anyone younger than me I have wondered what it would be like. What factors are important to one that is engaged in a relationship with someone much younger than she?
Thank you! In this case, I knew this was not going to be a relationship – the age difference was just too great. But I have had a couple of longer relationships with men 10-12 years younger than myself. In most ways they were no different than ones with men my age, but both people need to remember that your perspectives are different. For example, when I was in college, they were still little boys! And when I was secure in my career, they were still struggling to build one. Finally, the differences in fertility – which was one reason why I could not conceive when I wanted to.
Very intriguing story! I’m dating a younger Guy so I know how you feel 🙂 it’s funny how relatable this is when I met my boyfriend I wasn’t interested but he showed me how even a young guy can act older and mature but nonetheless I’m happier than I thought I could be with him and I wouldn’t change that for the world !
I’m so glad that you are happy! I knew my young guy was a one time thing, but they don’t always have to be.
Your stories are amazing, I love reading every bit.
Thank you! I hope you’ll keep reading.
I didn’t know what I was going to read when I clicked on this article, but I’m glad I did! It had me laughing and I loved the little dialogue you included. Definitely had me reading to see what was going to happen!
It’s not something I do often but it sure was a fun experience – and fun to write about as well.
Love Love Love! As I get older I fear no longer being attractive or sexually wanted. After reading I realized that there are many aspects of sexual desire.
Yes, there certainly are. I’m 69 now and have almost white hair and some difficulty walking. Yet some men are still interested in me. Thank goodness!
This was a great read. I really liked the conversation that took part and the minor suspense that came with it.
Haha, it was fun at the time – and reliving it by writing it! He did contact me later about getting together again. I just said let’s keep it a good memory! 🙂
I love your ambition on loving younger men! It is always exciting to hear stories about older women and how their sexual lives are as adventurous as any young adult. People often focus on age too much than just living their best lives, and I really appreciate how at the end of the day you are being you! 🙂
Thank you! Yes, older people sometimes have way better sex lives than younger people imagine. 😉
This was a sexy read Lynda. As a gay men, I’ve always had an interest in mature older men. It’s the sexual experience they posses. I think I might have daddy issues.
Liking maturity and experience doesn’t necessarily mean daddy issues LOL. Glad you enjoyed the post!
I was waiting for the part about “living together happily ever after”. That is always not the case but at the same time it may not be what both sides want or expect. Sometimes its all about the journey and I am glad you shared this with us. If anything, you’ve proven that age is just a number. What do you think about lioness? Thank you for sharing.
Lioness! I like it! Haha. Glad you enjoyed this.
This was such a fun read! I love how bold you are. I definitely can’t wait to read your book!!!!
When I was young, I was pretty shy. But I learned the value of being bold! Thank you, my book will come out October 11.
OMG! The interacting conversation moved my heart rate to no end! It’s funny I read this post because we always call my mom a cougar. She on the verge of being 48 this weekend and we always joke with her about the younger males she likes.
Yes, that was quite a set of text messages – not to mention what came later! LOL
