Dating a younger man.

Let this be a warning to all of you who think dating a younger man is so great.

Today being Valentines Day I went out on a date with a much younger man. I did not want to sit home on this special day while my husband is out of town, so when this gentleman asked me to "go somewhere" I said sure.
(Honey you don't mind me dating another while you are away do you)?

Dating someone younger has its disadvantages.

I got stuck driving because his jeep is in the garage.

These male creatures can be a bit immature and only think of themselves.

First he wanted to go to the bookstore. I thought sure I could browse the books I haven't been able to read in a long time. Well that didn't happen. He was busy in one section and kept telling me to wait and that he wasn't ready to go yet.

Then he wanted to go get a work out in before lunch. Apparently he does not know I am to old to be doing all that running?

After that work out he knew he would never be able to wait until we got to the restaurant so he was a bit immature begging for a cookie to hold him over. The nerve of him eating both cookies that I paid for.

We finally make it to the restaurant, get a table and he can't make up his mind what he wants to eat. Rather than hold up the waiter any longer I placed the order for both of us. The food comes and we are having a good time but boy he sure did ask a lot of questions. I was barely able to answer his questions before he was asking another one.

The waiter put the bill on the table and he never even attempted to pay for it. I wound up footing the bill. By this time I was a little tired so we went back to my place. We weren't even there 15 minutes and he fell asleep. I guess he had a late night last night.

So just to let you know if a younger man asks you to "go somewhere" you just may want to think about it before jumping at the chance.

Although I will continue to go out on dates with this gentleman.
(Even when my husband is in town)!

He is the most precious 3 year old a mom could ask for.
Yes I spent quite a long time waiting in the bookstore while he played trains, and yes running around the play area is not my idea of fun but I will do it again just for him. Yes I did let him eat both cookies before lunch, trust me when I say that never happens but it was a special day. And even though I had to drive and pay for the cookies and the lunch it was a great day.

So great in fact that after he woke up from his nap he told me "Mommy I had a great date with you!"

Do you hear that?
That is the sound of my heart melting...
