And I find the younger ones more accepting and curious.
I work hard to be positive about all facets of my life, but older women are a real struggle.
I had a woman walk right up to me getting off my road bike last summer and ask me why I was wearing girl’s shoes. How the hell do you answer that?
The woman had to be in her mid 40s. It was either the weirdest flirt ever or a knock-down. I just walked by.
At my old starbucks in the suburbs it got to the point where the older women wouldn, t even be civil, as I’d obviously dated women they knew and now I really was the bad guy in their eyes. I made a decision that one girl was clearly a freaking nutcase and I told her it wasn’t going to work out (she was aggressive with my youngest son) and so two of her friends rounded on me while I was having coffee one morning, calling me a player, that I’d broke this girl’s heart, and that I owed her a second chance and blah blah.
I felt like I was in high school.
I still go in there occasionally with my boys on week-ends and the same old single girls are there, eyes down, looking away.
Nothing you can do, and I don’t see them with prince charming, which is a shame because some of those women are ok enough and deserve a good railing. It would smooth out the bumps for them I’m sure.
They just play the feminist “stick together” thing a bit too much sometimes.
One question: Why were you wearing girl’s shoes?
