When I hit my thirties, bang, things changed. I dated an 18-year-old. For a year. I think it was dating. I’m not sure. No. I’m not sure. We hung out every day every day for over a year.
My mother thought I lost my mind. “What are you doing dating a kid like that. You’ve already walked around the block twice.” My goodness, my mother calling me a whore. I didn’t pay much heed. I continued seeing the guy. What happened to him? I’ll never know.
I don’t remember how we met. I know I made an impression on him. He thought I was way too gay to be true. I thought he was too childish for my needs. Anyway, we never did anything sexually. He held my hand once, I held him once, and we were both afraid of committing to each other. We knew each other’s secrets. We held nothing back. He knew about the men I was with; I knew who he was with. It was love/hate relationship. I used to hate loving him. I was never too sure of what to do about him. We both had school, and we both had our responsibilities. Our entire relationship took place at night at a restaurant and never went anywhere from there. I knew the menu by heart. I knew the manager had a Prince Charles. I knew which cook, was sleeping with which waitress. I felt like I was on a soap opera.
On another occasion. I had an affair with a much younger man. He literally waited until he turned 18 to talk to me. We spent a lot of time together, eating out late and such. We would go to movies, games, festivals, parties, and anything you can think of when a couple goes out. I had so much fun with him. I miss him. He’s out traveling the world as a grown man should. First we started with a bit of hand-holding and slowly progressed to one night of passion. Things were different after that one night. I’m not sure what happened. Maybe he was too young, maybe I was too immature. I don’t know. I’ll never know the truth. I know his girlfriend was happier after that night.
I tell you one thing. I’m 42 and I am currently sleeping with an 18 year old. I carded him before we did anything. Let me tell you. He’s a fast learner and OMG, he is sooooo good. I don’t know what I’m going to do with him. All we do is know each other in the biblical sense. I love it.
So tell me, what about you?
