Life, the universe, and cougars

Small Town Girl a while back talked about a thing that's been going around the internet, that I believe I've seen other places too. Six word autobiography (oh yeah, Churlita did it too). Although I'm a woman of brevity, for some reason that didn't strike a chord with me. But Small Town Girl opened it up to haikus too. So I was all over that. Here it is:

Searching for meaning
having fun along the way
(At least trying to)

I have seen news of Ivana Trump's marriage. One headline read "The Cougar Pounces." I'm thinking it might be nice to be a cougar for a little bit...once I get my life sorted out. At what difference in age do you become a cougar? I've dated guys 7 years younger, but that doesn't seem to be enough. Ten years or more? Or does it need to be two decades away? Of course, not sure it would work in real life since he'd have to be a pretty mature youngster because if he opened his mouth and spouted out nonsense, not sure I could go through with it.

I want a haiku.

I watched a show about Hollywood cougars and they said 6 years.

Oh dear. I guess I've already been there! But wait, what's the male equivalent? Likely there is none.

I've gone as far as 20 years difference. It was awesome.

Hmmm, this is a tough one! I generally don't fool with anyone more than about 1 or 2 years younger, or more than 5 years older...my mom will be 47 this year, and it's a no-no to mess with someone anywhere NEAR her age! But hey, I guess it's different strokes for different folks! Pun intended.

Gyuss, and illegal?

Tera, but wouldn't it be fun to fight with your mom over a boy? :-)

Gyuss Baaltar said...

hey, she was 20 years OLDER than me. I'm no perv.

I have a serious thing for older men. I've went out with someone 27 years my senior. It was odd because he was sort of friends with my father...

Churlita said...

Most guys I date are younger than me. Hey, I live in a college town. There aren't many men around my age here. I try not to go younger than ten years, because then they don't understand my pop culture references and I have no use for them.

NoRegrets said...

Susan, kinda like Tom Sellek?

Churlita, I understand, I do. I went through that even with the 7 year younger guy a few times. Drove me nuts.

Sometimes I think younger men are nice to look at, but I wouldn't necessarily date them. I usually prefer men close to my age or a bit older.
