Maybe this just interests me because I was left for one? And the man I have set my eyes on is married to a younger girl? But what is man's fascinations with the younger girl. Is it the media? Ego? Biological?
And why are there always girls who are willing to let an older man come knocking? Is it all daddy issues?
I just don't understand why a giggling girl 15 years my junior is more interesting? What could they have in common?
I am 15 years younger than my husband. We have our fair share of problems (you can read about them on here...) but we make do because we feel lost without the other. We have a lot in common music, books, all the basics. But when it comes to the personality he is a dreamer and rebellious whereas I am rigid and strict. He and I complete what the other does not have. I need him to push me a little bit where he needs my hand to hold him b.ack
I have a father a great father who was always there. I certainly don't have daddy issues. Does he have aspects of my father... maybe... they both work hard, take care of the women in their life, wants to be a family man. But that is really as far as a comparison goes.
I think my husband is sexy, I like his greying hair, weathered hands, his graveled voice, his crow feet around his pretty brown/green eyes whenever he smiles. I think he represents what I want my offspring to look like him and his good nature.
I look very young... and I have to say it does bother sometimes when people say "you look like your dad" and point at Bee. But usually I point at my left finger and say "he ain't my daddy" and laugh. Speaking of funny I am with an old man stories... Bee and I are sitting at a diner and I was looking at a baby magazine and I am showing a little bit... and the waitress says "aren't you the luckiest to have your father help you with the baby, my father kicked me out!" I was pretty horrified.
Sorry I know I really didn't answer... I think it is just we find each other attractive like how some find blondes more appealing. It is just a matter of taste? No like deep answer behind it. Why not ask the guy you like what he sees in her if you feel comfortable?
The visual media are largely responsible for this situation. There has been a steady, relentless attack on the value of human character and human qualities, as opposed to mere animal ones. Have a look as pre-war black and white romantic movies, and try to imagine them updated- it's impossible. Today, for many men, and to a lesser extent, for women too, looks are everything, and people look no further. That's why there are so many transient relationships.
Well I would hope that my husband does like to show me off... not just because I am young but because I am worth it? I least he thinks so... Apparently I am "beautiful, a good cook, organized, keep a good home, smart, witty, keep him in line, have good christian morals, and a nice butt." His words not mine.
I am also his first wife. Just thought you should know. He did have a child with another woman. But I tamed a wild man mostly....
I agree with you Sara, you can take a man from a community that has little to no access to press, media and modern entertainment and he would still pursue a younger woman or at teh very least a woman who appeared to be younger.
Youth and beauty are intertwined because aging brings "imperfections" like skin discoloration/age spots, sagging and loss of muscle and elasticity, loss or thinning of hair, weight gain or severe weight loss, wrinkles, fine lines, and things like that.
