I'm 23, and I've made friends with a 30 year old women (I met her through our drummer, with whom she went to school with). It's really cool talking with her, and there's definatley a mutual attraction. There's also been some talk of casual sex, but that's niether here nor there. I feel like Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate............except that I'm still an undergraduate (though I'm preparing for the GRE if that counts for anything *LOL*). My point is that I enjoy the company of this women because she's older. She knows who she is; she knows where she's going; and she's beyond the "games" that a lot of younger women/girls play. This has led me to totally rethink my whole view on who I should be dating. I've always pictured myself with a younger women, because let's face, that's how it pretty much goes in mainstream society. But now, I don't know if that's how I should be viewing this. Obviously, you can't generalize people that easily; you're going to run into younger people who are very mature and older people who haven't a clue. But I am somewhat generalizing here. I've always been mature for my age, and I'm thinking that possibly an older women is who will satisfy me, especially emotionally and intellectually. I'm not ready to get married or anything, but I think that the older woman angle is the way to go right now. I was wondering if any other talkbassers date/are married to older women. What are your thoughts about it? Females, what do you think?
