Sabretooth Town

Today over at the Bold Italic, Kelly Malone of Indie Mart tells us about her love life:

There’s a taboo to the term cougar, much like the played out “hipster” tag. No one actually  wants to be called one, myself included. However, I  am 36 and dating guys a decade younger.

Let me point out, I have nothing against guys my age, and I don’t rule them out. But it’s funny (as they say) that as I get older, the dudes I’m dating stay the same age. I’m drawn to the hallmarks of these 20-somethings – the sound of skateboard wheels coming down the street, the sight of postgrads paying for their coffee with quarters. I don’t need a financially secure, established guy. I need adventure!

Adventure is the best! Read on!

    So she’s acting like she’s in her twenties and ends up meeting guys in their twenties. I’m shocked.

    Funny how a 36-year-old woman who by all appearances is responsible, gainfully employed and has her shit together gets raked over the coals for dating men in their twenties; meanwhile scummy 36-year-old Mission dudes who aren’t even ‘together’ enough to wash their bedsheets are totally absolved of any and all Jameson-fueled one night stands with 22-year-olds. SMDH.

    hah! it’s not like 36 year old men in the Mission are usually financially secure and established.
