Double Standards

100 words about dating a younger man

Lena leaves a voicemail. It sends my alarm bells ringing. I text to suggest we meet for lunch at our favourite coffee shop.

Lena’s waiting, looking knackered. She tells my everything. I almost choke on my panini.

‘Why?’

‘Seemed a good idea. Still does, I quite like him.’

‘How old did you say?’

I’m as appalled as I’m jealous. If only I hadn’t pushed her into dating after Eddie left.

‘Lena, he could be your son.’

‘If I’d started too early, maybe. Eddie’s run off with a girl who’s barely even legal. Does anybody bat an eyelid? Of course not.’

It’s Week 2 of FFfPP. I’m tired and there’s other stuff that needs writing, so this is the best I could today.

  1. Some guys like older women. Men can date way younger women so why can’t women do the same. Good point! You were tired but you did an excellent job.
