I won't name any names, but I've got this friend who will be 32 next month. She's going through life looking for "Mr. Right." There's this guy; we'll call him George, who works in her building. She smiles at George every chance she can get and he smiles back, but he's always walking with the women that he works with so she's yet to strike up a conversation with him. She's been networking to find out more information about him. She found out that he's 27 and she thinks that this is a huge age difference.
I keep trying to tell her that if she were 21 and he was 16 it would be an absurd age difference but at 27 & 32, five years is not that big of a difference. By 27 he's most likley out of college and has quite a few years of living on his own under his belt. It's obvious that he's holding down a job.
I think that she at least has to at least meet him and talk to him to find out more about him before she writes him off. Why live with a "What If?" He might be a very mature 27. I mean heck, she could meet someone who is 32 with the maturity of a 17 year old.
Quilters...what are your thoughts? Does she need a nudge in either direction?
By the way...she dared me to post about this probably thinking I wouldn't do it!!
