  •  don't get it (5+ / 0-)

     I guess I'm just wired to be clueless on this stuff. I'm in D.C. and it's a visually appealing city - several colleges, it's blazing hot, so it's sun dress weather ... but if they're wearing short shorts and there's no cellulite visible that's a parenting opportunity for a guy my age, not a date.

      I guess I'd rather have one 42 than two 21s any day ... I know what's good :-)

    •  It's the whole "consenting adult" (6+ / 0-)

      thang :)

      I guess you may be surprised at what adults do in the privacy of their own lives :)

      Assuming you can maintain that privacy when in Congress is a level of naivety I never suspected of Weiner, is all.

      There is a public obsession in the US with some completely fake idea of "moral" behaviour. It's not accurate, it's not right. and it's not fair; but politicians live under that spectre, at least for now.

      It is not the same in other places.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

    •  heh, no doubt, all I want is an actually single (5+ / 0-)

      mid 40's tree huggin, otter scrubbin, preferable gun totin but we can work with that, did I mention actually single and not just saying they're single, woman.

      Not a girl, not some sweet young thing, I want a woman, wise and experienced in life, the ups and the downs, no wrinkles? not a woman, no grey even if it's just the roots....not a woman.........I want to be able to talk also............

      Where are the damn women????  I have a 23yo daughter, I want my woman to at least be old enough to be her mom....minimum 35 and preferably 45-50.....I'm 45 myself......

    •  just passing through and happened to hit (4+ / 0-)

      your comment and agree altogether with your POV.  I can't understand Rupert Murdoch or Hugh Hefner going after women younger than their daughters.  It would be very strange dating someone who has more in common with your youngest daughter.  Age brings with it experiences and there are some experiences that cannot be explained, so yeh, it is much better with someone who was also there and can discuss whatever it is with insight

      Too sad our culture cannot appreciate women as they age and become so much more interesting

        Any time you see one of those old buzzards with a trophy wife the age a granddaughter would be is that they couldn't get it right the first time so they keep doing the same thing expecting a different result.  

        As for the women, they know time is on their side, so how long can it take and how bad could it be playing the role while he is still lucid and there are no pockets in coffins.

        •  For a metaphor I knew a fellow once (3+ / 0-)

          who did very well financially by identifying unwanted real estate, stocks, businesses, inventories, and almost anything else of value and which were for sale at below market value or FMV.

          In addition to buying undervalued properties, he was also able to identify properties about ready to take off in value and his talent was to be able to identify undervalued properties that were due to appreciate in the short term and making his money on the difference.

          I guess it is the same with relationships; many men undervalue their wives of 20 years and yearn for next year's model when their wives have the value of knowledge and experience which is undervalued by him. Add to that that women grow more beautiful as they age as experience and time adds new symmetries in the progression of the process.  That new beauty is also frequently undervalued.

          Like diamonds strewn along a busy roadway so often these women are ignored because so many men fail to ever understand what they have passed by or thrown away
