I have just read an article here: http://vadamagazine.com/26/06/2013/vada-that/hello-neverland
Have a read and come back.
If you don’t want to read the article here’s it in brief. Two guys go on a date, one of them is nineteen, like me. It is going well and not just because the older guy is in love with the others Zara Jeans.
(I have owned two pairs of Zara jeans and they have both fallen apart.)
But then it all goes wrong for him. Hmm.
You see, when you’re an older guy dating a younger guy, the younger guy is going on a date with you. He is not courting you, he is seeing what it is like to go on a date, he needs to find his feet.
The older guy says how intimate it is to start. Well of course you remember what ‘Teen Love’ feels like?
I went on what I thought was a date with a twenty five year old. I tried to make him laugh, was enthusiastic about his job and his street dance hobby (even though he didn’t seem the type). He bought the cinema tickets and we had dinner afterwards.
I’d met him twice before and I definitely kissed him whilst drunk. This time I was sober and kissed him on the cheek goodnight.
Apparently it was awkward to him, apparently we went as friends.
If the case is age here and the writer of the article thinks there is a maturity with this, then he is wrong.
We might go back to our parents house but our feelings are still at the date. Maybe he should think about the text at the end again. They might be at different stages in life looking for different things, but they were both looking for love.
Don’t just pass us off with the ‘they are young, it’s good experience’ card.
We just want to go on a date, try not to rush into things, do so by accident, realise we didn’t do what the chick flick told us, give you the hard to get act, text you back the next day when we give up and hope you’ve not lost interest because you’re too busy with work, while we have to time to doubt ourselves.
Thanks older guy. Thanks ‘just friend’.
Yours and always
