What has been made disturbingly clear to me, is that if you dare put one foot outside the circle of acceptable, mainstream "normal" behaviour, it really messes with people and they simply can't help tell you about it.
I can't imagine what it must be like to be a good way outside the circle, like the young "Gay Cowboy", NSW rodeo rider Joshua Goyne, for example.
Goyne recently came out and has received an avalanche of online abuse, including death threats. There's no public confirmation of a relationship at all, yet Yarbrough is already publicly vilified for reminding Australian women, presumably just those older than her, of "what they are not".
"I wish it 1850 so I could shoot you," opined one charming homophobe. And I didn't know playing and laughing was only for women under 35. ACTUAL DISGUSTI ended a long friendship with a married mate who asked me, by email, if my partner had any friends who might want to "hook up".
I never even meet older guys, all I meet is guys ages 22-35.
My problem is that I have always thought older women who go for younger men are a) disgusting b) need their heads examining and c)wonder what on earth the younger men would be doing showing interest in older women when they could be going out with a nubile 25 year old?
Mike reached across the table to examine mine."You were born in 1966? That's so weird."The word rattled around in my head, even after he changed the subject to his upcoming marathon training. The banter that had come so easily seemed stilted in the bar. I said yes, but as soon as I got to the meet-up spot, I wanted to drive away. It wasn't what they were wearing—I was wearing an athletic tank top and hiking pants, same as the other women—but they all seemed so carefree.Im just interested in getting everyone's opinions on here - can it work between older woman and younger man?-what do you think about the older woman/younger man scenario?He says that many older women are beautiful, take good care of themselves, are more confident, are better lovers, and have life experiences that make them more interesting overall. It wasn't until the next day that my friend revealed he was only 25.
