How do you know you’re ready to retire? When you start anticipating the weekend on a Monday afternoon. And I keep having to remind myself that I am so lucky that I work from home, on my own schedule, doing something I actually enjoy! I keep coming back to the thought that I am probably inherently lazy. After all, I would rather surf the Internet that dust – and dusting doesn’t even take long!
Yup – just plain lazy. Except, of course, when it comes to doing something I really, really want to do. Like – us – maybe some hiking?
Now here’s something I’ve been thinking about lately: why does no one is society turn a hair when a man dates a woman 10 years younger (given he’s not 20 and she’s not 10 of course) but switch roles – how many women date younger men? And when they do, everyone talks about it! Why is that? Women live longer than men. Shouldn’t it all be reversed? Doesn’t it make sense for women to date younger men?
Why do I care? Well, I shouldn’t because I am so done with that whole scene. But still, IF I were ever to be interested in a man again, it would obviously be someone younger. Everyone I know and hang out with is younger. So what are the odds a younger man would be interested?
At any rate, it’s a purely hypothetical question. But I would certainly be interested in opinions and thoughts.
