*grumble grumble*

Fastest way to kill a crush?

Find out he's 20. And you're 26.

Damn it! I have a new rule. If under 25, everyone should be required to wear a damn age tag. He graduated high school...two years ago. I did eight years ago. *sigh* Age tags. I swear.

I don't date second graders.

Well, I can see it being a big deal NOW. But in a couple of years, it won't matter, since both of you will be in the career-track age. I think age matters most when people are at different places in their lives - but if you're both heading in the same direction, it should be a big deal. :) But yep - I can see where you're coming from.

But he's a baby. Dude, he can't even legally drink! It was hell to find out my detective skills actually worked for the greater suck. *sigh* I mean, if we were like 40 and 46...no, still a problem. I've dated guys that are two years younger than and it was a pain in the ass. I'm not looking to date someone that could be younger brother. Yech.

I have no desire to date someone that young. I could have handled like 24, just for casual dating. But he graduated high school two years ago! See, I'm already mentally ahead of 26, probably closer to mid-30s if you don't count that I had stumble and come back to myself. He's 20 while acts older, he's not old enough to hit the rough part of the 20s. Hell, he didn't 20 until last December.

Yeah, you make sense. That's why I personally date older men (not by much, but still). I'm ahead mentally/emotionally, and so usually guys my age seem really immature to me. Besides, I grew up hanging around older people, so being with someone my age or younger just feels uncomfortable. And also, the whole women mature much faster than men thing. So even if he was your age, he could totally act like a 20 year old. Hell, my ex who's 25 to my 21 acts like a 16 year old sometimes - he can pull off being mature in front of people who don't know him, but honestly, he acts like a stubborn teenage brat a lot of the time. And I've gotten tired of having to "parent" him, and try to make him understand. So buh-bye. Ha ha ha...so, yeah. I can understand where you're coming from. :) Men. They're so "ugh" sometimes.

I totally prefer people older than me. Because as an old soul, I really don't wanna parent someone else's kid. I did enough of that with my baby brother. I grew up around older people, too. Like grandparents age older. I think that's part of my problem, too. I don't think and act like a 26-year-old. I don't club (hate it), don't drink myself to death (seriously, learn a little self-control), sleep with everyone who has a dick or vagina (hello, better self-worth). I'm over it.

I'm not looking for a forever, but I'd appreciate someone with some sense that's not an infant. I don't know. I'm starting to think that person doesn't exist. It's really hard because I'm around a lot of different ages, but I seem to attract a) children, b) gay guys, or c) people that I'm just not interested in.

Seriously, my last boyfriend? Hell, I can't even remember the year. I'll take a guess that it ended in March 2004.

Yep - "parenting" a boyfriend is just beyond frustrating. Most of the people I grew up with were my parents age or older, but I thought they were fun and interesting (much more than a lot of people my age).

I don't club, or drink, or sleep around either - and you know what, that's one of my ex's reasons for why we don't work out. He loves to grab his friends and go out and party and drink, and because I wasn't into that, he decided that I wasn't "mature" enough. Umm, excuse me? Getting drunk and puking in the street is mature? Seriously. Grow up.

But keep your chin up - if there are two of us that are looking for a mature special other, there's GOTTA be more of us out there. :) Hopefully they'll fall into our laps one of these days. That would be nice. :)

Way to go ex. Good lord, he's a dumbass. It's not about if you club and drink. It's about if it's worth it. Clearly he missed that memo. God knows enough people in the age bracket did.

Older people you can talk to, about anything. It's not all about seeing Lindsay Lohan's twat or what Britney's doing right now. I like staying at home, reading a good book or rewatching a L&O: CI episode. I don't have to wonder what I did last night, if I accidentally slept with an infected person.

I wish they would fall into our laps. I think we deserve it. To be happy with people who match up with us. It's not a lot to ask for, damn it.
