Granted, some of you may have already come to that conclusion a while ago, but for the rest of you, let me explain.
It wasn't very long ago that I posted about the weird creepiness I felt about admiring "younger" women, due to the fact that I have kids of my own. I posted about the Scarlett Johansson pictures and my surprise that she was only 26 (at the time). I'm nearly 50 and I think I felt the same way when I was 40 or 30 about gawking over much younger ladies. Of course, throughout our culture we know about these romances between much younger women and much older men. In the comments, Ms Inconspicuous (a blogger I truly miss reading) reminded me that she wasn't all that young. But even so, I just always felt like if I found myself staring at the fine body of a woman more than half my age, there would be a circle of hidden women who are my age looking at me from some undisclosed location via closed circuit cameras shaking their heads and saying, and I quote, "Tsk, tsk, tsk. What a creepy man."
My son has always dated beautiful, smart, funny women. I've had to catch myself over the years not being that creepy guy. He also has many female friends from school, including more than a few who we have known since elementary school. I'm friends (and my wife is) on Facebook with some of them. I sometimes think that maybe these ladies, all in their mid to late 20's forget that they are friends with me when they post pictures.
I have come to the conclusion that one such friend is quite possibly the most photogenic, sexuality displaying woman I have ever seen. Yet, I've known this girl since she was in 2nd grade. She posted photos of herself in her bikini yesterday and all I saw was these beautiful eyes and lips that said, "Yes Mr. Break, I would so let you go down on me." Is this the beginning of a mid-life crisis? Am I that 50 year old guy who wants a younger woman? I thought my mid-life crisis involved dicks in my mouth.
Anyone wanna offer some thoughts on this. Do other men feel this way? Ladies, am I just totally gross for even having these thoughts?
