Autumn's First Wet Wednesday

Welcome to my first Wet Wednesday. Wet Wednesday are fun little questions that give you some guiding points for discussion and for revealing a bit of yourself. If you'd like to participate in your own blog you'll find Wet Wednesday here.

1. in the book cougar: a guide for older women dating younger men by valerie gibson, ms. gibson states that the typical cougar-prey age difference is six years. would you date - or have you ever dated - someone at least six years your junior?
I never have dated someone that much younger although I did always used to date guys a few years younger than I was. If I weren't married though I'd be a total cougar. Especially if I wasn't looking to get married.

2. what is the largest age difference between you and a paramour? who was older?
The largest difference in any relationship is my current one. My husband is 7 years older than I am.

3. what would you say to your friend if he/she was carrying on with a friend of their child? is this ever acceptable to you? why or why not?
I think people should do whatever makes them happy. I've known a few people who had a difference of more than 5 years between them and they've been very happy - and yes, she was older than him. Age really doesn't matter if you love each other.

But what about if you're just messing around. Well, the younger the better as far as I'm concerned. One of the best candidates for messing around in a non-committed relationship is a younger man. They aren't out for marriage, they don't care if you see other people, they have no hang ups. So, as long as both parties are old enough and mature enough to be in a relationship/messing around then it's no one's business but their own.

However, if it is a friend of your kid that you're messing around with you should take your kid's feelings into consideration. And know that if you don't think about it it could make a mess out of your relationship with your child. Is it worth that?
