Monday end of day

P1030631There – that puts that day to bed – a few interviews, a fair bit of writing, phone calls, scheduling – I’m done. And truthfully, it feels good. Three more days to go before a four-day weekend.

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.

    Great photo, is that Tzouhalem?

    To hit on your question, I think it’s less noticed when it’s an older man and younger woman because it’s become more common these days. I was, in fact, married previously to a woman about my age who is now involved with a man about 20 years older. (I’m now happily remarried to a woman eight years younger; go figure.) But an older woman and younger man combination is just a little less common, so it’s a little more attention-grabbing. Not to say it doesn’t happen though. My wife’s uncle married a woman 18 years older, and my cousin married a man about 15 years younger. Times continue to change. The traditional approach to marriage and relationships has less influence on people than it used to. People find each other based on common interests and compatability rather than social expectation. In my opinion, if a person finds someone who shares his/her interests and has similar values, age difference is not really an issue, regardless of who is older, the woman or the man.

    First – no, not Tzouhalem – Mount Prevost. Second – thank you so much for your well-reasoned comment. It’s much appreciated.
