Well, I've had my first taste of older men. I agreed to dinner with a 60 year old gentleman. He wined me, dined me, and bought me a Tiffany's necklace that same evening. I think I'm onto something...
Really though, I went to a charity event this past weekend with a few girlfriends, and the audience was much more mature compared to the bars where I usually party. I've only been on one date with a 30 year old, and no one older than that, but at the event, I met a really great guy in his mid-thirties. Now I really do think I may be onto something. He knows to how to take initiative, makes me feel really good when I talk to him, and is very successful in his career. We have a tentative date this week!

I don't know about y'all, but I draw an unmistakably defined line between my personal and my work life. I don't talk about work on my lunch break, I don't take my work home with me, and most of all, I don't work for free. Guys like to message me about my job and ask me the types of questions I would normally be paid to answer, so on my OkC profile I have a joking remark about it.
This guy thought it would be funny to ignore my disclaimer and ask for free shit anyway. I looked at his pictures and I would never date him, so I was in one of those moods where I felt like talking back. My response that you see is kind of joking and kind of serious.
What I didn't show is his prissy defensive whiny remarks back. Basically he flipped on me, said he can't believe I told him how much my charges are (which I made up because I am salaried), that I wasn't classy, and that I didn't get that he was joking. But honestly, when he asks for free stuff, what am I supposed to say back? "Oh yes, I work way more than 40 hours a week, and of course on top of that, I'll work for you for free during my personal time!!!"
We could all sit here and brainstorm comebacks, but he's not worth the time. Hey dumb guy, way to go for demeaning a girl because she wants to use OkCupid to go on dates. Way to show that he's whiny, overly defensive, not confident, and not clever enough to have a witty response without starting an argument. Because I wasn't necessarily starting a fight...
