Confession #20 – The Man I love is Younger than My Grandson
Cougars!!! Actually I really dislike that term, you don’t
hear anyone labeling men who date younger women or perhaps we should label
them. How about “wannabees” or “hounddogs” or….. anyhow let me not get into full
rant mode. Our confession today comes all the way from sunny Barbados and this
lady is not a happy bunny at all and she wrote this….
I am so tired of this BS. I just want people to leave me
alone so me and my man can live and be happy. I really do not understand why so
many people are getting in my business. Not a day goes by without one of my
family members calling me and telling me how stupid or how selfish I am, or how
embarrassing it is for them being related to me. Carol you would think that I
had raped somebody’s child or something.
All I did was fall in love with a younger man. If I was a
man nobody would have a word to say. In fact people would be congratulating him
for making a great catch. Other men would be jealous of his conquest. But
because I am a woman I am the worst thing in the world. I am tired of this crap
and I feel like picking up my child and going back where I came from but I
cannot do that to my child’s father as he is a good man and a great father.
My boyfriend and I love each other very much and if it was
not for people harassing us we would be perfectly happy. Is my boyfriend a good
provider? Yes. Does he respect and love me and my daughter? Yes. Does he help
around the home? Yes. Is he a good lover? Yes. So why is everyone determined to
break us up? Simply because he is 26 and I am 57. Yes he is younger than my
oldest grandchild but surely everyone can see that we are happy, why can’t they
just leave us alone Carol?
Thanks for listening
Hi BJK, the debate about women dating younger man will rage
until the end of time and I doubt that there is anything we women can do to
stop it. So all I would tell you is try to do your best to ignore those that
want to make you and your partner miserable because at the end of the day it’s
alright for them to tell you to get rid of your boyfriend but it is you that
would have to sleep alone every night. And do you really want to be alone and
miserable just to please other people who have partners?
Over to you folks!!
Should BJK leave her man to please her friends and family?
