Have you ever been to Europe or South America and ridden a scooter while on vacation? They’re fun, aren’t they? And, yet, you’re kind of embarrassed to admit to having ridden one and having enjoyed the experience. Welcome to the dating world!
When I set up a guy I know with a girlfriend of mine, I didn’t think about how the world would view a 60 year-old man with a smoking hot 35 year-old woman with long blond hair who wore skirts just below the water line. I was just doing what I do best, matching things up. You know square peg, square hole, round peg, round hole. Oops, did I say something vulgar?
When a date turned into a weekend tryst and a weekend tryst turned into a full-fledged love affair, I noticed how awkward they were in public together. They both thought others viewed them as the rich older guy with the young rent-a-date. While he is rich and she does love designer clothes, that was by no means the premise to their relationship. Nevertheless, they were going to restaurants where they didn’t know anyone, because each in their own way, thought the other was a moped—fun to ride, but you wouldn’t want your friends to see you riding one.
