Here's an example of what I'm talking about, from a date I recently went on with a 22-year-old girl: In discussing how she planned on getting home after the date, her answer was simply, “Oh, my dad picks me up from the train station after work every day.”Her reason for this wasn't that she didn't have a car or that she was saving money.
It was that she truly wanted to be able to drink as much as she desired any and every day, on a whim.
If that's not an easy conversation opener, I truly don't know what is.)But after all sorts of successes and failures with women, as time has gone on, I've found at least common failure: a massive age gap.
I'm, by no means, the most mature 30-year-old dude you're going to meet, and I'm not insinuating that all younger women are flighty or immature.
And naturally, it concludes with something like what I've experienced several times — a date that lasts no more than 45 minutes and feels like an absolute death march for the final 20.
On these dates, decent — hell, I'd take simply flowing — conversation is hard to come by.
For example, generally, you try to avoid people with two first names or those who abbreviate the word probably as “probs.” But you never know; that one awful abbreviator could be your soulmate.
So to be clear, I'm not dumping on anyone who still lives with their folks.
To be clear, not knowing who The Fugees are or simply missing someone's references doesn't make you a bad person.
It makes you ignorant of great music, and definitely not a match.
Keep up with her.“If age is nothing but a number, don't act like a grandpa.
We like going out and doing things, so you better be ready to get that ass moving! So basically, if you don't like going out and getting drunk at the club or hitting some wack-ass music festival, maybe don't date a 20-something. Remember that she's not looking for a sugar daddy.“Not all of us are financially helpless.
However, I am saying that if you're 30 and dating someone who lives with their parents… This one is going to make me sound old AF, and I'm OK with that.
