Guest blogger WantSugarDaddy: As I am entering my senior year in university, my girlfriends and I have decided that this year we will only date older men. We have determined, through trial and error, that college boys just don't cut it. So when I mentioned this to a friend of mine I was surprised by her response.
My friend already IS dating an older man, and while my definition of older was in the range of 25-28, she had snagged a 34-year-old father. Now don't get me wrong--I am 100% supportive of the May/December romance, but this is pushing it. I know for a fact that my friend has no interest whatsoever in being either a friend or role model to this child. In fact, she has not even told me the gender or the age of the child, he or she is referred to solely as "it." I don't even know if this man is married or divorced.
When I brought this to the attention of my other girlfriends, none of them were really surprised. One of them actually confessed to dating her boss--also mid-30s and with a kid--for the past three months. She, too, had no desire to interact with the child and would simply ignore the little girl's existence when both of them were in the apartment together.
Now, call me a prude, but it just doesn't seem right that these 21-year-old college girls are going to be around your little one, especially when they will be ignoring them and being inappropriate in front of them. Seeing Daddy come home with a drunken college girl hanging all over him and following him to his room is not the kind of thing I would want ANY child to see. However, this seems to be a trend in my university town and many others.
Moms what would you say to your 21-year old-daughter if she was shacking up with an older man and around his kid? And what would you do if your ex or husband was messing around with a college girl in front of your children?
