Speaking Of Open Minds

Filed under: Personal — by teofilo @ 10:27 pm

So I’ve been thinking over the comments to my series of posts on relationships with perceptible age differences, and I’ve begun to think that my squeamishness about them isn’t really based on anything important.  I think it’s largely a reaction to circumstances in the past when I was just starting to figure out how dating and relationships work and isn’t really relevant now that I’m in different circumstances.  I don’t think I’m quite at the point where I’d actually initiate a relationship with an older woman (these things take time to get over), but I’m probably more likely to seriously consider one if she proposes it.  I remain somewhat uncomfortable with being the older partner due to the associations with power differentials, but I’m young enough that that’s unlikely to be a pressing issue any time soon.

    Cool — there have been any number of times in the past week where I wanted to comment or e-mail you something along the lines of “You know Teo, I think your squeamishness is not really based on anything important” but did not want to come off as patronizing.

    Also, avoid threesomes in which you are one of two guys.

    Touché. I’ll have to think about that one some more.

  3. (Threesomes in which you are one of three guys are of course a-ok.)
